I have a short list of things I like to buy around this time of year, i.e. pumpkin body wash, foundation, dark nail polish, tights, knee socks, etc... I've been broke for weeks because I only get paid once a month & the majority of my last paycheck went to Comcast & NES (blood-sucking bastards). So I've been not-so-patiently awaiting my next paycheck, which hit my account yesterday. I feigned illness & left work early to hit the streets, debit card in hand. First stop, Cosmetic Market for my yearly purchase of Philosophy's Pumpkin Pie body wash. No such luck. Cosmetic Market didn't have it in yet. No fear, I meandered back to the nail polish section & bought the prettiest shade of gray/lavender nail polish. It's from that new OPI France Collection. I think it's called Tickle My France. I'm going to put it on tonight, so I'll report back.
Concluding my business at the Hill Center, I head over to Green Hills Mall to try my hand at Sephora. Alas, I find my body wash, but it wasn't Pumpkin Pie, this year it's called Pumpkin Spice Muffin. Whatever, smells the same to me. I was so excited that I took a shower when I got home & spent the rest of the night smelling myself, ha ha.
While I was in the mall, I went into Macy's to check out their tights/knee socks selection. Very disappointing. I want some dark purple tights. Macy's had some & I was walking around with them when I looked down at the package & noticed that they were stir-up tights. WTF? What is this, 1987? Who wears stir-up tights? Stupid HUE.
I also went into Kiehl's. I'm all of sudden really into Kiehl's hair products. I bought their Creme With Silk Groom a month or so ago & got all of these free samples. I'm hooked. Yesterday I bought the Heat-Protective Silk Straightening Cream. Next on my list is their Clean Hold Styling Gel. Go, Kiehl's!
So I still need to buy some foundation. I can't decide what I'm going to buy this year. I typically wear Chantecaille, but I've worn it for so long that I want to shop around & see what else is out there. My skin is like the desert, so I need something really creamy. Suggestions welcome!
