Thoughts for this month’s bag

This month I thought it matched my profile much better! I’m a safe make-up user and this bag demonstrated that! I was really excited to try the BB Cream so I gave it a quick swatch (and a lot more came out than I was hoping, so excuse the big blob). It was a tad bit disappointing because I’m used to BB Cream acting somewhat like a foundation, not like a bronzer. This BB Cream had these gold sparkles infused into it. It’s very light, but I’m not a big fan of sparkly make-up! I washed it off my hand after the swatch and the golden sparkles stayed! So now I sparkle! Other than the sparkles, the BB Cream itself actually matched my skin tone and it was very light when you apply it. I’ve included a couple of pictures for you to see the bronzing/gold sparkles in the BB Cream. Excuse the giant blob of cream. The second picture shows the sparkles and shine much better because I decided to just rub the whole blob down!  Otherwise, I loveee this bag! I know the total value of the bag isn’t as hefty as last month’s, but the items are items I’d more likely use on a day to day basis! Definitely perfect for back to school!
