I'm sorry for falling off the world! I've missed you, and I'm glad to be back. Would you like to see what I've been doing while MIA?
A lot of this:
Research, research, research for my History of Communication Theory course. Then quite a bit of this:
Writing, writing, writing until I could barely see the words….but lest you feel too sorry for me, I had help:
He's not a half-bad research assistant, you know.
And then, because God is good, when my paper was done, I got to do a little of this:
I was blessed to be able to take a much-needed trip to see my family in the Maritimes a couple of weeks ago. It had been much too long, and I hope to go back soon. Family is important—so important. Am I right?
I've mostly been going to work and sitting on the couch since I got back—I'm sort of in a jet-lagged, grad-school-recovering fog. I watched season two of Orange Is the New Black in less then two days last weekend. Not even embarrassed. The rest has been good.
I have picked up a couple of very small treats recently, and I wanted to share one with you: Lise Watier's Blush Creme Satin in Rose Eden from Lise Watier's summer collection. Isn't it lovely?
Given my newfound blush obsession, I had my eye on this when it first came out, then convinced myself it was too electric for me. Then, a few days ago, I saw this review, and for some reason, I was gone. Hook, line and sinker—Jayne just made it look so good! I power-walked to London Drugs that evening just before closing time to nab one. (Yes, I'm aware I may have a problem.) My lovelies, it was so worth it. :)
Lise Watier Bush Creme Satin in Eden Rose a beautiful, vibrant peachy-pink that's just neutral enough for my cool-toned skin. It may look imposing in the pot and swatched, but blended, it looks completely healthy and natural.
It's creamy enough to dab on and blend out easily, but it dries down to a powder finish that lasts all day. The texture reminds me a little of a MAC Paint Pot. When it sets, there's no tackiness at all. It even applies well over powder. How cool is that? I think I'll be reaching for it daily for the next while!
The price is good, too—$24 for 9 grams. It's part of Lise Watier's limited Eden Tropical Collection, but there are still quite a few online and in-store. If you're a blush fan, give this a try! You'll love it.
What do you think of cream blushes? Do you think you'll try Blush Creme Satin?
