Hello! Today has been quite a bad day for me actually… everything so far has gone wrong. But luckily, I’m at home now! Made myself a few cups of tea, and tried to recover… I’m especially looking forward to a relaxing bath later tonight, because it’s the best thing to do in order to relax mind and body, as well as to regain energy.
But before I head to the bath, I would like to post up Part 2 of my haul post for you! So, I hope you enjoy the pictures!
Dior Addict Lipstick ~ 578 Diorkiss
I told you, I was in need of more Dior Addicts, didn’t I? Missed my first Dior Addict Lipstick post? See it here! So, this time I picked up 578 Diorkiss, which is the color that is featured by Kate Moss in the Dior Addict promotions.

Dior Addict Lipstick ~ 578 Diorkiss is a vibrant true pink, that is sheer and gentle enough to be a very wearable and elegant pink. I can imagine it looks beautiful on almost every skintone.
The color looks a lot more intense in the tube than on the lips, but the color payoff is pretty nice though. It finishes with a lovely shine without shimmers, which I prefer these days. Over are the days that shimmery and glittery lippies would release serious enthusiasm!
Want a vibrant hot pink that is yet not loud? You will be loving 578 Diorkiss!
Dior 5 Couleurs ~ 534 Rosy Nude (Summer 2011 Electric Tropics Collection)
534 Rosy Nude is the brighter palette out of the two of Dior’s Summer 2011 Collection. Isn’t it a truly beautiful palette? I don’t know how you feel, but I simply can not get enough palettes with soft neutrals and nudes.
In all the excitement for my new goodies, I forgot to take swatches (yes, again!). Will hand in later!
Dior Capture Totale One Essential Skin Boosting Super Serum
This is actually my second bottle already. This is the large bottle with 50 ml of product. So, obviously I love Dior One Essential! This serum totally fulfills what it claims to do! Thumbs up!
I’m using this serum at night before applying my moisturizer, which is currently the Kanebo Sensai Silk Soothing Cream. I can see a difference in my skin condition every morning when I used Dior One Essential. With this, my skin is much more radiant, plump and smooth.
I highly recommend the use of a good serum, if you noticed changes in your skin texture. For example, lack of firmness and radiance. Or simply if you feel that a moisturizer alone is not sufficient anymore.

Clinique Mild Clarifying Lotion
This is an alcoho-free toner that contains salicylic acid. My skin breaks out occasionally, hence I like to use a toner with salicylic acid in my daily skincare regimen. It is quite an effective way to keep break-outs to the minimum.
The Clinique Mild Clarifying Lotion has a gel consistency that doesn’t strip my sensitive skin. I have been using it since I got it last week. So far so good!

Okay, that’s it! A few days ago, I claimed via Twitter and Facebook that I have to go on a no-buy for the rest of the month! But… I failed today! Yes, once again! I’m such a loser when it comes to no-buys, haha…
I got the Caudalie Anti-Ageing Serum Eyes and Lips, because there was a 10% off promotion on all Caudalie products. I heard about this eye and lip serum from my beloved beauty youtuber and friend Fuzkittie. Another item I got is the Dr Hauschka Lip Balm. I have a weakness for lip balms in a pot, even though it’s not very sanitary, oh well…
Off to my desired bath!
