 Stores have begun to sell fall clothes, but I can’t even take a look.  How am I supposed to get into the mood for fall when it’s 98 degrees outside!? I’ll start buying fall clothes once the weather cools off…

Throwback Thursday: Favorites from August

Here are my favorites from August 2014 and 2015. Apparently I did not do a favorites post in August 2013.

 

In August 2014, I liked:

Martha Tilaar Caring Colours Everlast BB cream (link goes to my review)

This was a really great BB cream from a local Indonesian brand. It is very affordable, had good coverage for a BB cream, and worked well in the hot/humid Jakarta environment.

Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles Concealer Treatment (link goes to my review)

I picked this up when I went to the US solely because of all of the hype online. I usually don’t like products with applicators that cannot be cleaned, but this product worked so well that I was willing to overlook it!  I never repurchased this because I have a lot of concealers, but I still think this is one of the better under eye concealers that I have ever used.

Revlon ColorBurst Matte Balm in Elusive (link goes to my review)

I liked the color, but I ultimately decided that matte lips do not work for me!

Jordana Color Tint Blush Stick in Blushed (link goes to my review)

Ahh… another product that was constantly in my favorites until I used it up! Unfortunately I couldn’t find Jordana cheek products when I last went to the US. If you want to try them out, they are available on the Jordana website.

In August 2015, I liked:

Shirt Cool (link goes to my review)

This is still a must have product for every summer. Spray it on your clothes, and the minty cooling sensation will last for about 30 minutes. I used up this bottle early this summer and have since repurchased a new one.

Daiso Ever Bilena eyebrow coat (link goes to my review)

I have a feeling that many Japanese girls use this, or some product similar to this… if they grew up in the “thin eyebrow” phase of the 90s. This product is meant to be brushed on to your eyebrows (or the areas on your skin that you drew on) to ensure they do not “disappear”

Thick eyebrows have been the norm these past few years, but it looks like thin eyebrows may be coming back soon.

Gatsby Body Wipes (link goes to my review)

Yet another must have product for the summer. This is the best body wipe on the market in terms of how cooling it is! I have a packet at home and a packet at work.

Sparkly Soul Headbands

I use these headbands when I run to keep the hair out of my face. They really do not slip!

 

Hope you enjoyed a look back at my past favorites!

Review: Robert Piguet Fracas Eau de Parfum

This is a review of the Robert Piguet Fracas Eau de Parfum. This is a sample that I received from a friend!

What it does: (from Nordstrom’s website)

Create a little chaos with this lush white floral. Distinctly feminine, this intoxicating, classic fragrance combines tuberose, jasmine and gardenia with a hint of orange blossom before giving way to a base of sandalwood, vetiver and musk. Fracas is the signature fragrance for women who want to make an unforgettable impression.

Top notes: bergamot, mandarin. Middle: jasmine, tuberose, gardenia. Base: musk, sandalwood.

 

Price: $150 for 3.4 oz. Pricey!

 

Availability: I was able to find this product online at Nordstrom’s and Neiman Marcus.

 

Scent: I felt this scent smelled strongly of bergamot, musk and sandalwood. After I used it a few times, I smelled more of the tuberose.

 

What I thought:  This scent was overpowering to me. I had to apply it extremely sparingly to ensure I did not apply too much.

 

Would I repurchase? No. I also didn’t like that this was a dark yellow color.

 

Hope you enjoyed my review!

Weekly Reads #258: August 13, 2016

 It is Obon season in Japan, one of the major holiday periods of the year. Historically it is not a government holiday, but many companies give time off.  From this year, we have a new government holiday on August 11.  It is also the hottest time of the year!
