Love Me Some Lancome & Feeding My Nail Polish Addiction

Hey there! Happy Monday everyone. I know that usually we say TGIF (Thank God it's Friday) but I think if you start the week with optimism then you might just end up having a great week that will go by faster than if you were dreading.

So I went and had a great shopping day at Nordstrom yesterday. I was determined to get my Genifique and good thing I did because it was the last day for the GWP (Gift with purchase) if you spend at least $39.50 on Lancome products.

 Ah my 1.7 oz beauty in a bottle...aka Genifique! After trying a sample of this stuff, I was hooked! Although, I've managed to clear up my acne and diminish my acne scars, I still had underlying bumps, large pores on certain areas, and uneven skin tone and texture. Then after almost a week of using the sample (I even cut it open so I can really get the rest of the product) I noticed a huge difference in my overall skin appearance and texture. My skin was smooth as a baby's bottom and my pores had visibly diminished!

The only downer on this product is that it's uber expensive! I shelled out $98 and this is the biggest bottle. Oh and by the way, I went to Macy's before going to Nordstrom (since it is conveniently a few blocks across from where I live) but they didn't have a GWP at the time. They did, however have a new product called Vissionaire and it is supposedly even better than the Lancome spot corrector. Sadly, Nordstrom is yet to carry this product so I might just purchase this from Macy's soon.

Okay, so this one was an unexpected purchase for the day. I was using my Clinique Wash-away Gel cleanser for the longest and although I really like it, I'm not in love it so I decided to try this one out. Lancome's Clarifiance oil-free foaming gel cleanser is ideal for Normal/Combination skin types.

This is $30 at Nordstrom but it can be purchased at a CCO depending on availability. It's a very basic gel cleanser, nothing fancy. It removes makeup and impurities. I was able to try this last night prior to applying Genifique and it didn't dry my skin at all. I used it with my Clarisonic Mia.

I love shopping at department stores especially whenever I can score GWP.
I got two GWP bags and sets of goodies...yay! The bags come in purple and black with a metallic sheen to it, but feel rubbery to the touch! Good quality considering they are free.
This was my first Lancome purchase so it's nice to get new stuff to try out.

$75 for a 1.7 oz and $90 of 2.6 oz

I can't wait to use this quad. It looks like the eye shadows would work for a great smokey eye effect!

I also bought a couple of OPI Nail Lacquers. I really like their creme finish nail colors.
  I Lily Love You (Gorgeous pink sparkly nail color that I had ordered and finally got a chance to pick up) and In The Spot-Light Pink (a creme finish light pink that will probably be my go to color for the year!)
