Here is a breakdown of the mini Sephora haul I posted a few days ago:
Cover FX is one of my favorite cosmetic lines so when I saw this Illuminating Setting Spray I HAD to get it. I’ve been using it everyday for the past few days and I LOVE IT!!!
This is my 3rd bite beauty Agave lip balm. I’m obsessed with these. They feel sooooo nice on my lips. I got a 3rd one just so I can have one in my purse, one in the car, and one on my vanity.
Too Faced recently launched their Love Light Prismatic Highlighters. They have 3 shades, a champagne tone, a rose gold tone, and this gold tone in You Light Up My Life that I picked up.
I have used it a few times already, but I am not sure how I feel about it. The swatch on my finger looks insane but I’m kinda feeling like the product is chalky. I need to try it on a few more times before I give a final review. (side note: I hate pink toned highlighters)
I’m sure we all know what this is, or at least I hope we do lol cause I forgot to take a photo of the actually product. It’s one of my favorite bronzes EVER! I have been using Lauguna by NARS for as long as I can remember. Lilit (make up by Lilit) and I were obsessed with this in college.
This is the new Becca Soft Light Blurring Setting Powder, which I had seen online a few days ago and was so excited about getting. I loved that they had it at the Americana Sephora, even though they don’t carry the entire line at that location. I really love Becca cosmetics so I couldn’t wait to try this out. The swatch was so beautiful because it has a soft radiance to it. I have been setting my under eye concealer with this, and I really want to love it. BUT. It makes my under eye look cakey once I set it. I am not sure if it is the shine in the powder that’s causing this, but I definitely see it happening. My Charlotte Tilbury powder that I use to set my under eyes does not do this. I’m thinking maybe Tape Shape is the problem, cause it’s kind of a heavy concealer. I will try using it on top of Nars Creamy Concealer and see what happens. I will also use it to set my entire face and see how that looks as well and keep you guys posted.
Next up is the new Benefit Cosmetics Dandelion Twinkle which is a subtle pinkish/silver highlighter. It looked so cute (that was my reason for buying it), stupid. I know. I didn’t like this product at all. I didn’t like the pink tone, I didn’t like how dusty the texture was, or how sheer it was. But if you are looking for something subtle and dusty lol then go for it.
This blush I actually got from Nordstrom that same day. I had seen Claire Marshal on YouTube talk about it. It is Burberry Light Glow Natural Blush in #7 Earthly.I have never in my life picked up a more pointless product lol. THERE IS ZERO PIGMENT. I should have realized this when I saw the color on display, but no….I lose my self control when it comes to cosmetics, so of course I bought it.
I def have to return this.
My Guerlain Terracotta Bronzing Powder in #3 was a bit too light for me, so I went ahead and got #5 as well. This is one of my favorite bronzers. The only thing I don’t love is the scent.
That’s all for today guys. Hope you are all enjoying this beautiful weather as much as I am!
Good Morning Guys,
Aren’t you guys LOVING this weather? I’m always looking for a reason to wear daisy dukes lol and this weather couldn’t be more perfect.
A couple of months ago I shared with you guys that I just didn’t feel like I had enough perfumes lol, and so since then I have been trying to find ones that I really love. A few days ago when I picked up my Marfa Eau de Parfum I also smelled a bunch of other scents and whatever I liked I took a pic of the bottle. I personally can’t get too many fragrances at the same time because after smelling so many, I can’t figure out which one I really loved. So a few days later when I go back to that same store I smell the ones I took a photo of a few days back and try to figure out if I still like it. If I don’t, I delete the pic, if I still love it that’s when I get it.
Okay that was way too much of the perfume buying processes lol, but it totally is a process. So…yesterday I stopped by Neimans because I was given a tiny sample of Maison Francis Kurkdjian Paris in Grand Soir and I fell IN LOVE with that scent. Especially when I cocktailed it with my Marfa by Memo. Most importantly I loved how long it lasted on my skin, unfortunately Memo does not last very long and I find myself spraying more on during the day.
: Grand SoirIt’s Amber, Woody, oriental and it includes Vanilla, all of which I love.
Hope you all have a wonderful Sunday. I am definitely going to enjoy this weather.
