Free for Haul Friday, Volume #350

Share any beauty goodies you may have picked up in the last week or so, or maybe what’s on your way or on your wish list for next week or month. 🙂

  • Haul: My Nordstrom Anniversary sale picks came in late yesterday! I also just placed orders at Saks (a few pieces from Dior fall, Cle de Peau fall) and the new MUFE Arist Palette (Vol. 4) – probably will mention those again next week when they actually arrive!
  • Weekend plans: Relax, get back into the swing of things! My mom and grandma were visiting earlier this week, so while I was still tending to things on the blog, I did write a lot of posts in advance so I could spend more time with them. It always throws me off a bit to get back to full-time!
  • What’s the best part about summer?: Normally, I would say warmer weather, but here it’s warm, warmer, and then surface of the sun during the summer! I think monsoon season is going to be my new favorite thing, because I never saw lightning like I have in Arizona during monsoon season!

This week’s Mellan photo…

The funniest part is he knows I'll grab the fallen toy and give it back to him! 😂

I’ve had exceptional service with Nordstrom and Neiman Marcus (where they’ve replaced luxury beauty products that arrived broken without a fuss). Beautylish is also the best for actually packaging products so they won’t break on you, and they’ll also upgrade shipping to overnight/two-day and from what I’ve heard, replace and return things very easily.

What's the Most Long-Wearing Foundation that you've tried?

Share your pick! And don't forget to share why!
Tarte’s Rainforest of the Sea is particularly impressive for me, because it doesn’t really truly break down on me through the day, even 10-14 hours into the day (without a primer). I feel like it gets a little dewier many hours later, but it doesn’t become patchy or sheer out. Make Up For Ever Mat+ Velvet was pretty long-wearing from what I remember (it’s been years since I’ve worn it).
