Origins Plantscriptions Anti-Aging Cleanser

So I went a bought a gigantic 250mL/8.5fl. oz. tube of Origins Plantscriptions Anti-Aging Cleanser. The rationale was I'd be so busy with a little baby I wouldn't have time to switch out cleansers every other week or so. And plus an anti-aging cleanser sounded mild and polite enough for my dry skin, right?

Ren Hydra-Calm Cleansing Milk

Hello. It's been a while. The little one's eat and sleep pattern is still chaotic and I'm struggling just to keep up with him =.= But I haven't gone anywhere, quite literally. Ha.

Anyway, I'll be posting on a couple of items I used up over the past few weeks, starting with this tiny 5mL/0.17fl. oz. sample tube of Ren Hydra-Calm Cleansing Milk that lasted me all of three uses. I've had this tube for a while so it's no longer available, having been reformulated and renamed as Evercalm Gentle Cleansing Milk. I haven't tried the new formulation yet.

Lipstick Queen Saint Lipsticks Part V

These Lipstick Queen Saint Lipsticks in Saint Natural and Saint Bright Natural are the latest addition to my Saint collection. I'm just waiting to get Saint Mauve and the whole thing will be complete, well, unless LQ releases new colors xD

RMK Irresistible Bright Lips Part II

The disastrous second try with the RMK Irresistible Glow Lips got me wary with my three new Irresistible Bright Lips, 03 Coral Red, 06 Natural Rose, and 07 Deep Rose. 02 Pink Red was already ho-hum, and I kept hanging on to the thought that there could be another color(s) that might turn my opinion around on these lippies.

RMK Irresistible Glow Lips Part II

The successes of the initial RMK Irresistible Glow Lips plus the recent W Irresistible Lips 04 Deep Red emboldened me to try two more Glow Lips: 02 Baby Pink and 11 Innocent Pink. I also picked up three other Bright Lips, 03 Coral Red, 06 Natural Rose, and 07 Deep Rose. Will review these next.

Face Stockholm Lipstick Part III

I've been eyeing these Face Stockholm Lipsticks in the Veil finish for a very long time, since trying their collaboration with J.Crew in the color French Martini back in 2014 in fact. I didn't indulge until now that my routine has whittled down to a mere dusting of sunscreen powder and a quick swipe of lipstick, if even that. Blushes are rare treats.

This past Independence Day, there was a promotion for 25% off, so I jumped on it and picked up Veil Cranberry, Veil Friendship, Veil Raspberry, and Veil Rod.

Suqqu Creamy Glow Lipstick Moist Part VI

Back in May, one week before my little one's surprise arrival I was able to snatch up three more Suqqu Creamy Glow Lipstick Moist in 01 春音 (Haruoto), 04 蔓苔桃 (Tsurukokemomo), and 11 飴色 (Ameiro). I couldn't get to them until now, but considering it's only been 2+ months since I received them I consider these photos an accomplishment ^.^"

DHC Premium Lipstick GE

While browsing around, I saw that DHC is discontinuing both the Moisture Care Lipsticks as well as these Premium Lipstick GE's. I'd read great things about the Premium Lipsticks so I thought I'd give them a try now that they're at half retail. I ended up picking OR112 Bold Persimmon, RD109 Velvety Red, and RS107 Rich Raspberry.

RMK W Irresistible Lips

I stumbled onto RMK W Irresistible Lips in 04 Deep Red purely by accident. It's a LE from a rather old collection, so the lippie is not exactly fresh. Thanks to my friend J., I've been kind of obsessed with dark lip colors, wine, blackberry, etc., think vampire lips, so I took a chance and bought it anyway (don't be nutty like me, folks...). It was a small comfort that it arrived still sealed in manufacturer's shrink wrap. Ha. ^.^"

Hada-Labo Shirojyun Hyaluron Clear Essence Jelly

This past winter, I'd really enjoyed using Aqualabel All-in-One Whitening Jelly Essence, so having finished Kuramoto Bijin Hakumai Fermented All-in-One Milk, I moved on to a competitor product, the 200mL bottle of Hada-Labo Shirojyun Hyaluron Clear Essence Jelly.

I spared Hada-Labo from the "copycat" label because while the two products are nearly identical, Hada-Labo didn't try to mimic Aqualabel's packaging and name the same way the generic brand ABS did with both Hada-Labo and Oshima Tsubaki with the intent to mislead.
