NYX & Cosmedicine Haul, plus FOTD.

Hey everyone! Hope all is well.
Boy, I had quite a day, I worked at the new Sephora in Temecula...
such a fun location, and I as tempted to buy many things (but I didn't- yay to the beauty diet).
Some things I was tempted to get were:
*Urban Decay new liquid liner in: Ecstasy (metallic violet) & Minx (metallic teal)- also the new Ecstasy eyeshadow---- ahhhhhh LOVE my purples. (LINK)
*Korres Bronze & Protect Trio, which is only $29.50 and you get 3 amazing items. (LINK)
*Korres Guava Body Set (HAVE YOU SMELT THIS STUFF???? OMG IT'S HEAVEN!) So tropical and yummy, and the lip butter smells amazing- I need a hand lotion for my purse, and I think they sell the Guava Body Butter travel size for $8.50. But I still resisted. (LINK)
*I've been lemming Laura Mercier's Mosaic Shimmer Bloc's (LINK) & her Eye Brow Enhancers- which are pigmented waxes that work AMAZING (LINK).
*Of course, I saw the new/limited edition Kat Von D. Palette in GYPSY- which, i gotta admit, would probably be my favorite palette of hers, if I owned this one! (LINK)
*And for the first time, I swatched Benefit's Creasless Cream Shadows (kind of like MAC paint pots) and I was pretty impressed!!
*Everyone came in today looking for the perfect summer/spring bronzer- so I got to swatch most all of them. My current bronzer lemmings are:
-Make Up For Ever's Mat Bronze in 6- this looks soooo natural- oh and btw, 4 and 6 are basically the same shade (LINK).
-Hourglass Illume Creme-to-Powder Bronzer Duo- this is sooo natural looking- I tried it on someone with a skunk brush, she fell in love and bought it (LINK).
-NARS Laguna Bronzer- been wanting this for a while.
-LORAC TANtalizer Baked Matte Satin Bronzer- I saw this applied to a girl with verrry fair skin, and it didn't look orangey at all! So natural, with a gorgeous sheen (LINK).

Okay I could seriously go on and on- but I will stop there.
I sold alot of Cosmedicine tinted moisturizers today! Women were falling IN LOVE!!
For oily skin try Medi-Matte Tint- don't you hate the feeling of sweating off your makeup in hot weather? Well, Medi-Matte tint STAYS PUT for up to 8 hours- controlling shine, and it's packed with antioxidants- you don't even need a powder (LINK). For dry-normal skin try Honest Face- this isn't your average tinted moisturizer! It is proven to increase skin's elasticity, increase skin's hydration, and reduces fine lines and wrinkles (LINK). Both contain SPF20.

So I got two packages in the mail today.

Cosmedicine Healthy Face Regimen- was $6o, now its only $40.
Joe took the Mega-Dose Serum!! Lol, he loves this stuff!!

Speedy Recovery Acne Treatment- Daytime Blemish Lotion Sunscreen SPF15
& the world's best eye cream EYE SPECIALIST!!!

Speedy Recovery Acne Treatment- Daytime Blemish Lotion Sunscreen SPF15
Speedy Recovery Acne Treatment- Daytime Blemish Lotion Sunscreen SPF15

Cosmedicine™ Speedy Recovery™ Acne Treatment

Daytime Blemish Lotion SPF15

Speedy Recovery Acne Treatment is a fast acting, pH balanced acne-fighting lotion with SPF 15 UVA/UVB protection. Our Speedy Recovery daytime blemish acne treatment eliminates excess oil and debris with proprietary oil-stopping complexes and micro-fine granules. Speedy Recover Daytime Treatment, for no BS results.

This fast-acting treatment lotion with UVA/UVB sunscreens not only works all day to fight breakouts and eliminate acne symptoms, but actually leaves your skin in healthier and better condition than before your acne problem began.


  • Helps promote healing and control active and future blemishes
  • Continually exfoliates excess oils and debris
  • Unclog congested pores to speed treatment deep into skin where breakouts begin
  • Controls sebum
  • Neutralizes bacteria to help eliminate future breakouts and blackheads
  • Reduces the appearance of redness, swelling and inflammation
  • Prevents skin from drying out
  • Is gentle on skin
  • Hydrates and softens skin to promote a healthier complexion.

And unlike most acne treatments, this unique synergistic system prevents redness, irritation and pore-clogging rebound oil production caused by excessive skin dehydration.

Clinical studies prove it! The Speedy Recovery™ Regimen measured:

  • 29% reduction in pimples in two weeks
  • 53% reduction in pimples in eight weeks
  • 39% reduction in whiteheads/blackheads
  • 76% reduction in skin redness
  • 90% reduction in skin dryness
Very thin, non-sticky texture. However, do not be fooled by the thin consistency, it is super hydrating. FINALLY, a blemish lotion that WON'T dry you out.
So many people come in and say, "Proactive dried me out," and I tell them about this Blemish Lotion and they absolutely fall in love.

Onto my NYX Haul.

3 cream blushes:
Hot Pink, Natural, & Glow.

Hot Pink, Natural, & Glow.
These were applied with a heavy-hand- so don't hesitate, because they DO blend out to more of a sheer coverage.

NYX Doll Eyes Mascara- I've heard great things about this, so I thought I'd give it a shot :)

Felt-Tip Liners
I've been obsessed w/felt-tip eyeliners- and I am determined to find my HG.

Jet Black, Extreme Black, & Brown

Jet Black, Extreme Black, & Brown

Here's an FOTD using my new KATE DARK DIAMOND PALETTE IN BK-2.
I also used SKINFOOD'S Cream Blush in #1 (loooove this blush!)
Excuse my broken-out forehead- it's actually gotten alot better since I've been using Cosmedicine's Healthy Cleanse for Oily Skin.

Necklace by Disney Couture (from Karmaloop.com)

Rosanna said...

Hi Whitney!! I absolutely love your blog. It's very detailed and helpful!

You have the most stunning brown eyes!!!!

Thanks for following my blog, I promise it wont be as crappy next time XD

Kristina said...

Whit! What's it like working for Cosmedicine? It sounds like it would be a fun job. I have a question concerning the tinted moisturizers, do they have one in my skin tone? It's so hard to find my skin tone in tinted moisturizers, that I have almost given up.

How's the Cosmedicine healthy face regimen? Is it good for oily skin? My skin is a bit more oily and only dry in certain areas, it really depends on the season though. So I am in desperate need of finding a good face regimen for the hot and humid summers in Atlanta.


P.S. Love the hauls....thanks for sharing the information and hope you are having a great time at your job with Cosmedicine.
