So, I am one of those people that has like a thousand saved links on my Facebook of recipes that I am “going to try one day” but I usually just end up adding to the list and forgetting about them. This time around though, I decided to give it a try for Easter and I ACTUALLY DID IT! I made a Tasty recipe for crepe cake. You guys, this cake is so pretty and was kind of easy to make! It is time consuming, but I think I pulled it off and everyone loved it.
This weekend was filled with family, food and new finds at Sephora on Saturday. I wore my “Saturday shirt” as my sister calls it. I’m not usually a fan of Old Navy tops as they can be a bit disposable, but I have had this one forever and it’s my go-to oxford, and 90% of the time I wear it, it’s on Saturday. I went in with just one objective, which was a new eyeliner pencil since my Tarteist Doubletake Eyeliner ran out on the pencil side. FYI, you may think that the felt end would run out fast because it’s shorter, but it has actually lasted a while. Anyhow, instead of buying another Doubletake, I decided to try the Smashbox Always Sharp Waterproof Kôhl Liner. I had the Tarteist Sex Kitten liner in my other hand, but the sales associate sold me on the Smashbox because of the supercool self-sharpening feature. I have to say I should have stuck with the Tarte liner. The features of the Smashbox liner are cool, but since it is kôhl, it applies almost gray and definitely not as pigmented as the Doubletake. Lesson learned. I found it interesting that this SA wasn’t the only one who steered me away from another Tarte product during my shopping trip. I was ready to purchase the brand’s Rainforest Of The Sea Drink of H2O moisturizer, but she seemed like a real skincare expert and convinced me that I do not need anything that helps with wrinkles (aw!). She instead suggested the new Boscia Tsubaki Swirl Two-Part Gel & Cream Deep Hydration Moisturizer (whew that’s a mouthful). I have to say I was sold on just on the look of the packaging alone, because the gel and cream are swirled and pink and pretty. I am still in the trial phase of using it but so far I like it for two reasons. One being that a little goes a long way and at $38 for 2 oz. you don’t want to be dolloping this stuff on your face. Two is that I have dry skin and it really feels like your face took a drink of water after applying, so I feel like this will be a repeat buy.
