A Little Shopping Trip...

This shopping trip was "thought up" a while ago when Jay and I decided that we would hold off on the Valentine's Day and Easter gifts for each other so that we could save up and buy one another new sunglasses! Wow, run on sentence much? Couldn't get that one out right. lol. Anyways, while we were there dropping off all of our cash at Saks and the Sunglass Hut, I decide to visit the Chanel and Laura Mercier counters just to check and make sure they were still around. Thank god they were! I always think of all of the cosmetic items that I want to purchase and then when I actually go to the store I just blank. Anyways, "Again, I know just get to the point already Morgan", I purchased a few things I have been eyeing so I just wanted to share some pictures and swatches! I am very excited about my purchases. Everything, so far, seems to be very nice. Which is always a plus!

First the glasses..

I went for Tom Ford Aviators.

Jay went for Gucci

These look great on him! lol

On to the makeup goodies...


I purchased this eye makeup remover because I have been using makeup removing wipes and I just feel that they are too rough on my skin. I have to tug and pull my eyes, “Which is not good for wrinkles!!”, and I think that is really changing my lashes for the worst. I am a huge Chanel fan, obviously, so I wanted to try their remover. It is pricey, but I just like Chanel. That is my only excuse, sorry. Hopefully this is nice also. I tried it tonight, only on my eyes, and it seemed to do the job well and not cause any burning or irritation to my eyes! I just praying for no breakouts! I will continue to use the remover wipes for just my face excluding my eyes.

Illusion D'Ombre
84 Epatant

I am very excited to try this Chanel cream shadow! I absolutely love the color. The consistency and pigmentation is fabulous! I am really impressed so far and definitely think it is worth the price. I hope none of that changes! I have heard they dry out quickly, I hope not!

Caviar Stick Eye Colour
Sugar Frost

I am also excited about the Laura Mercier Caviar stick. This product along with the Chanel cream shadow has a wonderful color range, in my opinion. I think this will be great as a quick everyday shadow as well as a base and also maybe as a highlight for my inner corners and brow bone!
Here are swatches of the two products:

I hope that you enjoyed this post and found it helpful! If you would like to see more swatches or any in depth reviews of the products please let me know! I would love to share them with you!
I hope you all have a Fabulous Friday & a great weekend!
What have you bought recently? I would love to know!
