I just wanted to pick up another Nivea (For Men) Shaving Foam (full review here) and ended up getting another one of those Colgate 360 Toothbrushes (this time in Gold… yuck), some really cute Bandaids (can’t resist those) and Tweezers (neon). Cool Kick seems to have been renamed to Fresh & Cool now. Hey, as long as it performs the same, they could call it Chemicals in a Can, for all I care.
So ColourPop came out out with a bunch of new stuff, including newer additions to their; Makeup Brush line (smaller brushes for more detailed work), Pressed Powder Shadows (new shades + compacts) and collaboration with iluvsarahii (Arriba! Ulta Matte Lip). They even restocked DGAF Super Shock Shadow which I’ve just been dying to try (everyone won’t stop raving about it)! I wanted to get the Brow Boss Pencils the first time around (when they were actually new), except I accidentally ordered the Precision Brow Pencils instead (haulage here). I figured since I was going to be placing an order with ColourPop anyway, now was my chance to rectify the situation and order the Brow Boss Pencils that I’d originally wanted.
Best of all, ColourPop came out with a My Little Pony Collection, arguably the most adorable collection of life (packaging-wise)! I was literally counting the days up until its release and even went home extra early from a dinner with my favorite cousin (time just flies when we’re together and hours feel like seconds) just to make sure I got home in time to place my order before everything was out of stock. Unfortunately, there was a mix-up with my credit card (darn autofill) and by the time that got sorted out, everything I’d wanted from the My Little Pony Collection was already out of stock. As soon as they restocked the My Little Pony Collection, I placed my order immediately (October 28) so I wouldn’t miss out again and here we are. The total for this order was $101.00

I was at The Avenues with my younger brother’s wife when we (and by we, I mean me) decided to stop by a Sephora (I say a, as if we have more than one Sephora in Kuwait lawl). I was dumbfounded by my sister-in-law’s maturity (I’m pretty sure I’m at least 6-8 years older than her) because she exercised such restraint (masha’allah) and only purchased a few items, and even then, they were only things she would actually use, as opposed to myself randomly grabbing products left and right (just kidding, they were all “necessities”) and tossing them in my shopping basket (that they hand out at the entrance to Sephora). Even at the zigzag-y queue leading to the check-out counter, she showed little to no interest in all the ridiculously adorable minis! I was starting to suspect that she wasn’t really human (because how could anyone not be enticed by those cute minis at the zigzag-y queue?) and so as a final test I pointed out the GlamGlow PoutMud, mumbled something or other and tossed it in my shopping basket, to which she exclaimed that she was interested in trying it as well, and tossed one in her own shopping basket. Success! My adorable sister-in-law had succumbed to the cuteness of a Lip Scrub which meant she was a red-blooded human being (not an Alien life-form impervious to human wants like “makeup-y bits”) after all!
