EauMG’s September 2018 Empties

Yankees game 2018

I can’t believe it but I went through the month without buying any beauty-related products. Can you believe it? Because I barely can. I was faced with many temptations, but I stayed strong. I have so much back-stock right now. Plus, the holidays are coming up and I remember last  year that every item I wanted went on sale in November. Basically, I’m trying to hold out to November to buy the things I need or want.

It also helped that the loved ones in my life… Continue reading | 6 Comments

EauMG’s August 2018 Empties

August 2018 Empties

Can you believe summer is almost over?!

I have tried to take it easy. I bought Kérastase Chronologiste Gommage Pre-Shampoo. Is it a necessary product? Probably not but I like how it makes my scalp feel. I’m highly skeptical of scalp scrubs but I want to be as extra as I can be.

EauMG’s June 2018 Empties

June 2018 Empties

I am trying so hard to buy less. And I’m also failing at it. In June, I ended up making an e.l.f. order because I wanted to try their new foundation and SPF. But, with them it’s so cheap that the next thing you know, you’ve ordered 6 things you didn’t need. Anyway, I love everything that I bought. I think elf is doing the best with the “no makeup makeup” look than anyone else. I absolutely love the serum foundation because it basically looks like nothing (super… Continue reading | 8 Comments

EauPEN Thread – Scents & Seasons

Marilyn Monroe

Do you rotate your perfumes for the season? Do you have perfumes that you wear only in certain seasons?

My answer to #1: Absolutely. I currently live in a place with four very distinct seasons.  I have found that I tend to prefer different genres of perfumes for each season. Key word – “tend”.

I look at it like I do flavors/food. There are plenty of things that I want to eat in the winter vs. the summer and vice versa (and there’s plenty of stuff… Continue reading | 10 Comments
