Good afternoon my darlings. Today has just been chugging right along. Calories are on point, exercises complete. All is well on the fitness front.
I am however quite sad to find out that the cosmetics brand Becca is soon to be no more.Several years ago they were purchased by the Estee Lauder company and now as the company is rearranging themselves they have decided to close down the brand. They are closing officially in September. This article from Allure goes into the details should you be interested in learning more. I love the Pink Haze setting powder and their Aqua Luminous foundation is a great affordable full coverage foundation.
Almost every other foundation I use is lighter in coverage. The other full coverage foundation I adore is the Koh Gen Do Maifanshi Aqua Foundation which, while utterly fabulous (and if I am being honest, better than the Becca), at $77 tends to fall more into the luxury cosmetics rather than the more affordable ones like Becca. Don’t get me wrong the Koh Gen Doh is very much worth the price and one of the best foundations I’ve ever tried, I just like having foundations in different price ranges available in my dressing table.
Plus the last time I picked one foundation and just continuously used it, the product was discontinued and I began my grand foundation quest, so having several products I like as well as my absolute favorites on hand isn’t a bad thing.
I suppose I will just have to try more foundations to find one to replace it. Not exactly a hardship, I know. I just need to resist the urge to stock up before September. Well, maybe one bottle. The harder thing is going to be finding a replacement for the Pink Haze setting powder. It is just really good at bringing a healthy glow to winter pallid skin. and in making me look healthy when I’ve spent too long at the computer in an effort to finish a project. I suppose that may be a new quest as well as I don’t actually have anything really comparable to it. It is in a category all it’s own.
However as disappointed as I am to hear of Becca Cosmetics closing, there was a nice announcement today as well. The brand NUXE is having a sale for the entire month of March. It is a buy two get 25% off sale now through March 31st. There is no code needed and the discount is applied at checkout. Which I like because I am always forgetting to put in the codes. I love when the discount is automatic. I adore the Insta Masques from Nuxe. They are two minute masks that are amazing. I love putting them on and then letting them sit while brushing my teeth. Then I just rinse them off, easy peasy. The exfoliating one leaves my skin silky smooth and doesn’t strip it at all. It is very gentle I think that now might be the time for me to stock up. You too of course if you are interested in them. (the other Insta masques are good too, but you know I can not resist a good exfoliator).
So a brand I like is departing and a different brand I love is having a sale. It isn’t quite equilibrium in my personal beauty world, but it is close. And some days close is all you can really hope for.
