SEPHORA SALE HAUL

ERHMAGERD SERPHERA SALE!!! You KNOW I had to partake. I can’t pass up a discount there since everything is expensive and hardly ever goes on sale. Anyway, here’s what I picked up.

The first two things were actually gifts for my Mom’s birthday coming up.

The first thing is this Stella Rollerball Fragrance Duo. This has the original Stella fragrance, and the newer Stella Peony scent. My Mom loves perfume, and Stella is one of her favorite scents, so I thought she would like these two little travel sizes.

The other thing is this Loccitane Amande Set. This one is actually sold out now, but there are a bunch of other little sets. My Mom also really loves the Amande line from Loccitane, so this was perfect for her. The bag was really cute too.

Ok, now for me. 🙂

I LOVE Sephora haircare. Living Proof, Amika, Drybar, Bumble & Bumble…they’re my jams. I tend to use drugstore shampoo and conditioner, but for styling products…I go to Sephora!

First up, an old favorite of mine that I’ve mentioned over and over! The Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Dry Shampoo. This dry shampoo takes away any oil, adds volume, and smells great. Love it!

Another old favorite of mine is this Bumble & Bumble Surf Spray. This is a texturizing sea salt spray that dries down MATTE. Doesn’t look crunchy or greasy, but gives the beachy waves I’m after. It also smells like a salty beach vacation. LOVE.

Lastly for hair is something I’ve been wanting for awhile. I had received a sample of this, and the teeny sample lasted me a month! This is the Living Proof Restore Smooth Blowout Concentrate. You only need one tiny pump of this stuff (and I have long thick hair), and it’s like an oil that lowers blow dry time, smoothes, and leaves my hair super shiny. It also smells so good and comes in such a nice pretty glass bottle (my precious). Like I said, one pump is all you need, so this bottle will last forever!

Something a little bit boring I picked up was this Sephora Solid Brush Cleaner. I use this to clean all of my brushes and also my sponges, and gets every little bit of makeup off of them. It’s so easy and quick to use, suds up good, and rinses super squeaky clean. Love this!

Another product I have used before is this Anastasia Brow Powder Duo. I prefer powders to cream products while doing my brows, and this is the best powder out there. It is super pigmented, so a teeny bit goes a loooong way. Like 3 years long way. I use this and then I swipe on the Boy Brow, and I’m good to go all day!

Ok, I saved the best for last!

Go to Sephora.com right now and look at the reviews for this Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb in Fenty Glow. It has like 3500 five star reviews! I haven’t really been interested in this brand until I saw this (sold out) lipgloss in the store. They only had the tester, so I smelled it and looked at it, and I knew I had to order it! It smells like pink starburst! It is also BEAUTIFUL. It’s a rosy color with gold shimmer, it’s not sticky and OMG the packaging. I knew I’d love this.

Next. I’ll admit it, I am a 33 year old Mom, and I’ll tell you what, this Unicorn shiz just CALLS TO ME. It’s like if Lisa Frank made makeup! You should have seen my girls’ faces when i showed them this. This is the Too Faced Unicorn Tears Bronzer. I have been wanting a shimmery bronzer, and I mean, can we talk about the purpley iridescent UNICORN in the middle?! I can’t stop staring at it, and can’t even bring myself to swatch it. Maybe I’ll do a review when I finally decide to use it.

That’s it for the haul! I think I got some good new things to try!

Let me know what you’d like a full review on 🙂

Current Beauty Faves

Hello friends! I hope you are having a good spring! I love spring, but I love summer even more, and can’t wait for it. I have a few fashion posts coming up, but today I am sharing my current favorite beauty products of the moment (since I missed March Faves) 🙂

First up is this Wet N Wild Pro Flat Contouring Brush. I have been wanting a densely packed flat top narrow brush like this for awhile, and this is exactly what I had in mind. It’s so pretty with the rose gold pointed handle (fancy), and it feels nice and soft. I can use this for applying my bronzer or contour powder. It gets right under my cheekbones and really nicely blends the powder. Great price too!

Next is a pencil liner, this is the Rimmel Scandaleyes Liner in Black. I am sure that I have talked about this liner before, but it’s pretty much my favorite pencil liner out there (RIP Estee Edit). It is super black and creamy, and it stays put all day, even in the waterline. AND it’s from the drugstore.

Lastly for makeup is a super bougie shadow, this Burberry single in Nude 002. This is probably the most beautiful shadow that I own, hands down. It’s a taupe/silver/brownish gold…I don’t even know how to describe it but it is metallic and sparkly and wonderful. Just go swatch it. This pic doesn’t even do it justice.

For skincare, I have gone back to using Philosophy’s Help Me Retinol Treatment every night, and I just love how this makes my skin look in the morning! It really smoothes the skin, lessens the appearance of pores, and my dark circles. It does dry me out a little bit, so I just use extra moisturizer in the morning.

Another skincare product that I can’t do life without is this Dr. Jart SPF 30. I love this lightweight sunscreen, and I use it every day under my makeup. It doesn’t have a strong smell, doesn’t feel greasy, and doesn’t break me out. I’m sticking w you, Dr.

Last thing for skin are these random Eye Patches that I found on Amazon. I figured i would give these a try because you get 60 for like, $5! They have collagen, vitamin e, and give a lot of hydration to the under eye area. They really reduce puffiness and make my eyes feel nice. Love these little babies.

Lastly, for my hair, is the Bumble and Bumble Repair Blow Dry Cream. I apply a little bit of this to my hair before blowdrying, and it makes my hair so smooth and soft. It’s good to use a cream or some type of serum in your hair prior to blowdrying because it protects from heat and really smoothes after you’re done drying. This is a good one! It smells really nice too.

That’s it for the faves! …and I promise to blog more 🙂
