Weekend Rewind, What's in my Bag?

Well, Hello Blog World...
It's been ummmm, quite a while since I have sat down with you and had a chat.
I've been so unmotivated to blog lately... not sure why, but that apathy has set in as it
does. However, I did pick up some beauty goods this weekend and wanted to share.
I am almost out of my Fresh Soy Cleanser and I absolutely love what it
does for my skin, but it's $38 for 5 oz which is steep. I decided when I was out
 I would go back to the Purity Cleanser by Philosophy b/c you really
get more bang for your buck and it's a great cleanser.
This 16 oz bottle was $33 and the great thing about Purity is it is a one step
cleanser. It is a PH balanced cleanser that dissolves dirt and makeup while
cleansing pores. It is one of the best selling cleansers on the market and is for
all skin types. It has a nice clean spa type smell.
I'm almost out of dry shampoo and picked up a can of the Batiste sassy and daring
scent. Rarrrrrr! Never tried this can and I love some leopard print so why not!
I have been hearing so many great things about Mario Badescu skincare products.
They are sold at Ulta and their line began in a New York salon with botanically based
ingredients. Their line is loved by many celebs, but super affordable for the every
day gals.
I don't have an eye cream in my skincare routine right now so decided I would start
with the Ceramide Herbal Eye Cream that contains Vitamin C and reduces
the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.  This retails at Ulta for $16 and contains
.05 oz.
While also being out of exfoliator I picked up the Clinique
7 day scrub which is an oldie but a goodie. This is gentle enough
for daily use and is just a great staple to have in your skincare routine.
Guys, I have a lippie problem. I seriously cannot stop buying lipsticks and glosses
lately. OB-FLIPPIN-SESSED. I've been wanting a light coral/peach lippie and while
also being curious in the new Kardashian KHROMA line I decided to pick up this joystick
in the color Sea Coral and it is gorgeous. It also smells like Vanilla which I love. If you own any 
MAC lipsticks they will have a familiar scent.  
This color reminded me of Kourtney. She always wears a light peach on her lips with a smoky
eye and it's so pretty. Her makeup looks are by far my favorite of the girls. She just looks
so put together in a not overdone way to me.
These retail for $8.99 and have more of a matte finish.
Did you shop any this weekend? I know you did.. tell me what you bought!


  1. Lots of good stuff! I love purity nothing I found works better. I have tried a few of Mario Badescu and absolutely love them. Such a pretty lip color!

  2. You carry the best essentials

  3. I love the Purity face wash... I got a foam gel that is amazing from them!!


What’s The Story, Brooke?

I'm Brooke. Brooke Story to be exact... hence the title of my blog. I'm southern, still barely in my twenties, and have a few too many lip glosses in my purse.
