My Sephora Sale Haul | SPRING 2017

Processed with VSCO with s2 preset

It’s that time of year! For this post I’m breaking down each item that I purchased during the bi-annual 15% off Sephora VIB rouge sale. There are some things I have been waiting for this sale to purchase and some that were more like irresponsible off the cuff splurge decisions.

 

 

MAKE UP FOR EVER Brow Liner / I picked this up in the color Brown 30 after seeing it recommended by Polina (PBBunny) on Youtube. I can already say it is fabulous. It’s literally a liquid liner to do your brows with, which sounds terrifying, but works. It makes perfect hair brush strokes and blends out well with a spoolie.

Wishlist Wednesday: Blush Pink

I finally was bit with the #tumblrpink aesthetic bug that every brand is putting out lately, and am in the process of replacing everything in my life with this color. (Jk kinda) Just looking around me as I write this, I’d love to have a magic color changing wand like the fairies in Sleeping Beauty to wave at my white mug, navy Longchamp, my black planner, and my nails. Everything looks better pink! I’ll probably be over this and back to my neutrals, dark, and earthy colors when fall comes back around, but for now I’m shopping everything pink. It works surprisingly well as a neutral I have come to find out. I love doing these wishlist posts because they satisfy my shopping mood without actually spending anything.

Amazon Fashion & Fitness Favorites

Happy Monday! We all know that fashion trends come and go, so if I like something name brand that is out of my budget, I search the internet for a dupe instead of buying the real thing. The trick is to just type in a description of what you want instead of the name of the shoe. “Western ankle bootie” is an example. Some of these products are shipped from out of the country and take a bit longer to arrive, but they are worth the wait!  There are a few benefits to using Amazon rather than other retailers:

 

  1. Amazon is great because some name brand products are on there for a lower price, rather than getting it from another store and paying the markup.
  2. Around the holiday season, Amazon fashion has tons of coupon codes and lowered prices.
  3. Using Amazon’s checkout process for payment and shipping information is easier than at a website or store you aren’t familiar with.
  4. Prime delivery!

 

Prices and stock varies on Amazon so bear with me on some of these links.

March 2017 Favorites

Facetune

I have lots of favorites this month due to the fact that the season is changing and Spring is here! Check out my March 2017 favorites.

Facetune

Too Faced Pink Leopard Blushing Bronzer / There’s a part of me that can’t help but love Too Faced cutesy packaging. Many of their products are quite gimmicky, and I thought this was going to be one of them. Once I finally swatched it though, I decided to purchase it from Sephora. I like to use it as blush or swirl it all over my face to give myself a glow and blend my makeup.

Review & Copper Eye Look | MAKE UP FOR EVER Star Lit Powder

I recently picked up the Make Up For Ever Star Lit powder in Copper from Sephora. I had heard a few youtubers talk about the product and my curiosity got the best of me. MUFE has had diamond powders for a long time that I have always wanted, but never actually pulled the trigger on. They aren’t sold in stores and I was too lazy to purchase them off the MUFE website.

Kylie Kylighter Review & Giveaway

When Kylie revealed her Kylighters on Snapchat a few weeks back, I was so excited. I was freaking out with my friends talking about which ones we wanted, and speculating on the quality of them. She didn’t show herself actually swatching them so that was iffy.  It likely meant that they had to be built up a few layers to get good pigmentation. The packaging was beautiful- minimal, creamy pastel patent shiny cardboard with a mirror. I loved the aesthetic of the collection and the colors that she chose. I immediately wanted French Vanilla and Salted Caramel. (The names make it even more appealing.)

They released this month and I was at my computer, debit card ready, refreshing the website until they were available. I purchased two for myself, French Vanilla and Salted Caramel. I received them this Friday, and wanted to share my thoughts on how they performed. Read the rest of this entry »

Amazon Beauty Favorites

I’m a self- proclaimed Amazon junkie. There is no better or more convenient place for finding a good deal. I have found some major treasures browsing Amazon that I would like to share. These are all tried and true products for me that I would definitely recommend and repurchase!

Romantic Red & Pink Smokey Eye Makeup

I mentioned Make Up For Ever Pro Light Fusion 01 Golden Pink in my February favorites, and I wanted to share this look that featured it quite a bit.  I love doing highlighters as eyeshadow because it’s just so easy and takes a product away from the routine. Plus I get more use out of my beautiful highlighters and since I already put them on the inner corner, why not extend it to the lid? The products I used are listed below and are some of my all time favorites.

Ulta Hair Treatment Service Review

This past Friday I headed over to Ulta on my lunch break after booking an appointment for a hair treatment. I knew they had a salon in the back, but had never checked out their services until my coworker told me that she loves their hair treatments.  I had some extra time and an after hours work event to go to. My hair was on dry shampoo day and I didn’t feel like washing it, so I booked the “clarifying treatment” on their website. There were only two options (neither of which sounded like the one my coworker had) so I picked this one with the intention of asking the stylist for a deep conditioning treatment.

February 2017 Favorites

Hi everyone! This February has been a good one. I hope you had a good Valentines day, whether single or in a relationship.  It’s been an exciting time to start seeing all the new products that makeup and fashion brands come out with for spring and summer. Something about this time of year always gets me in trouble and makes me want to buy shoes… is anyone else like that? Anyway, keep reading to hear my favorites from this past month.
