Hello beautiful people! Happy Friday, I hope you all have fabulous plans this weekend!
On Wednesday I awoke to two, yes two, Sephora boxes on my door step! So I figured a haul was in order!
I got quite a few samples I’m eager to try, and re-purchased my favourite concealer.
I also picked up a few skin care bits for my mom because I’m a good daughter that way…and also Sephora has double the points on skin care at the moment, so I ordered some products for her to reap the benefits! (THANKS MOM!)
I’ll start with the samples to get them out of the way!
I used 250 points to get a tiny bottle of the Dolce and Gabana fragrance Dolce because I really like the scent and wanted to give it a try.
I got a sample of the Makeup forever HD cream blush in 410 which I’m pumped to try, and a small atomizer of the Tom Ford velvet orchid perfume.
I also got the atomizer of Flora by Gucci (To be honest, the samples weren’t that great when I placed these orders) and the Amorepacific night and day eye treatment which, I’ve heard really good things about.
Living proof “prime” style extender, which is a leave in treatment that is supposed to help your curls or any style really, stay in place all night and even into the next day.
For one of my orders I got a sample bag of 12 skin care samples, that included a bunch of things I love in sample size ( so handy for weekends away) and things I’ve heard great reviews on, like the Omorovicza thermal cleansing balm.
For my other order, I used a promo code to get a sample of the Sunday Riley Good Genes serum, which is incredibly expensive, but I thought this would be a good way to see what all the hype is about.
I’ll start with my re-purchase first, the NARS radiant creamy concealer.
This is my third tube of this stuff and I can tell you now it won’t be my last, this is hands down, the best concealer I’ve ever used. It covers blemishes and under eye circles without creasing, it stays in place all day, and has a really blendable consistency. If you haven’t tried this, you need to!
Next is another NARS product, I’ve heard such amazing things about the audacious lipsticks that I just had to pick one up. I definitely get what all the fuss is about; they have a really creamy formulation, while still staying put throughout the day. I got the shade Anna, which is a deep brown-rose with plumy undertones, it’s a beautiful shade to wear every day, but I definitely think I’ll be picking up some of the bolder shades in the line!
You guys know how much I love my Too Faced products, so when I saw this blush/bronzer duo online I had to put it in my basket!
The Too Faced soul mate’s blushing bronzer come in two shades, Ross and Rachel and Carrie and Big, which is the one I got, because A. I love sex and the city and B. the blush colour called my name.
The bronzer is a light shade that is perfect for subtly contouring my super pale skin, with a tiny hint of shimmer that adds a really natural radiance to the skin.
The blush is a gorgeous peachy-coral that is just right up my alley, not to mention the packaging of this is just adorable!
More praise to Too Faced from me!
Finally, the best and most anticipated product of my orders.
The hourglass modernist eye shadow palette in “exposure” which is the plum toned one, has the most buttery and beautiful shadows! I love the packaging and layout of the palette, and can’t wait to play more with this.
I don’t have anything like this in my collection, and may have to order one of the other shades, because of the amazing quality of these babies.They have great pigmentation, while being super soft and blendable, and they last all day. If you’re looking to splurge on a palette in the near future, I would suggest checking these out!
Those are all my goodies!
I may do a makeup look using all of my new products, let me know if that’s something you’d like to see!
Until next time my loves,
