So, that low buy thing… How has it been going so far?
Well, thank you for asking! Pretty good, actually.
I admit I feel a little envious about all of you that finished a No Buy January and now are back in the game, credit card in hand, but if I am completely honest, I don´t really need anything. (Read about my Low Buy 2019 rules here)
Which is actually not entirely true: I DO need a new concealer. I only have one left, the Sephora High Coverage Concealer Natural Finish in Porcelain Rosé, and the reason I still have it is because it doesn´t really work for me. It is NOT high coverage, despite the name, and only lasts three to four hours when used to conceal spots.

“A rose is a rose is a rose…” I bet you have heard that before. The sentence was written by Gertrude Stein as part of her poems.
It is often interpreted as meaning “things are what they are”, a statement of the law of identity. In Stein’s view, the sentence expresses the fact that simply using the name of a thing already invokes the imagery and emotions associated with it.
But I bet you are not here for an excurse in poetry (though it is a fascinating topic!). You are here for beauty products, and I promise I am going to talk about one:
The pixi Rose Cream Cleanser *, which, as rightly observed by Mrs. Stein, instantly evokes a certain mental image by name. I for one expected it to be a rose scented cream cleanser.
