So, I’m back working full-time on Monday after a pretty long hiatus.
I’m excited, but at the same time a little concerned about the future of this blog. Although I’m 100% determined to keep Carol in a Page up and running, as of now I don’t exactly know how much time I’ll be able to allocate to blog work. I guess I’ll just need to adjust to my new schedule and optimize my free time (any tips on how to manage a blog while having a full-time job without losing your sanity are totally welcome).
Moving on to my monthly favorites… After trying a truckload of new things in January, February was a quieter month beauty-wise. Also the abrupt end of the month kinda took me by surprise. After 31 Februaries on this planet, you would think that I’ve learned by now that it’s the shortest month of the year, but apparently I haven’t. I mean, I know that it’s 28/29-day long, but the end of it always takes me by surprise.
Like the marketing geniuses at Glossier would say: “Skin First, Makeup Second”, so let me start by talking about my favorite skincare product of the month, which is the famous Pixi Glow Mud Cleanser. While I’ve loved all the clay cleansers I’ve tried so far, the Pixi wins for me because it’s just as good as the others, despite being only a fraction of the price.
If you’ve read my previous post, then you’ll know that I was really impressed with the new Lancôme Matte Shaker Liquid Lipstick. I love that it’s super easy to apply and that it’s long-lasting, but also comfortable on the lips. The shade I have (378 Pink Power) is really bright and intense, so whenever I didn’t want such a statement lip, I mostly used the incredible Dior Addict Lip Glow in 006 Berry. Even though it’s a sheer lip balm, it packs enough pigment to bring my corpse lips to life. Plus, it’s seriously moisturizing!
Lately, I’ve been using cool tones on the eyes more than ever and my favorite recent discovery is the Clarins Ombre Iridescente Cream-to-Powder Eyeshadow in 04 Silver Ivory, a light champagne-y, silvery, taupe that I like to casually buff all over the lids for a bit of subtle luminosity.
That’s all, folks, but before I go, I want to thank each and everyone of you for taking time out of your day to read all my makeup musings and random ramblings. I really, REALLY appreciate it! 🙂
Next week I’ll be traveling to Rome and Germany, but I’m hoping to publish at least one post. Make sure you follow me on social media so that you never miss an update!
