You probably notice by now that my posts are erratic. I must apologise for that, lately I feel like I'm getting kicked by life in the butt. I need time to get my life in order and get my mojo back. I will still post but not as regularly as I wish to.
Anyway I have really come to the point where enough is almost enough. I'm not really getting excited about new releases and I don't really see the need to get more makeup. I am being very selective of what I buy and will probably be like this for quite some time.
I however did break my ban for Tom Ford. The images of the cream and powder shadows called to me. The Eye and Cheek Compact called to me too (I missed out on last year's and have kicked myself ever since). I have to admit I splurged on this collection.
I pre ordered my items from Neiman Marcus. I regretted not getting Midnight Sea so when I heard that it was in the Singapore counter I made a very rare trip to Orchard Road for some retail therapy.
I did not intend to get Pink Sand but the counter swatches did me it. It was emollient and blended easily on my skin. The pink gold shade was too irresistible. It was a very satisfying shopping trip for me. Heh!
Without further ado, let's take a look at Pink Sand.
The creamy white and gold casing calls to me. Its sleek and oh so luxurious. It isn't easy for me to open this though but I don't mind one bit.
I would say that Pink Sand would look better on lighter to medium skin tones because it will show up better. On me, it is a light glowy golden pink flush. It lasts about 3 to 4 hours. I applied it under and over powder with no problem at all. It blends well and does not appear patchy at all. I would think it is more suited for dry to normal skin as it is more emollient in texture.It is a limited edition piece so get it quick while it is still available. $87 is too high a price to pay for a cream blush, I wasn't thinking honestly when I bought this.I was in a "get it now" mode where brain function is minimal.

Here is my look for my shopping trip. I thought it would be fitting to wear a mostly Tom Ford look to go buy more Tom Ford. Heh.
