    Sephora VIB Haul

    Did you take advantage of the Sephora sale last week? Sephora only has these big sales, I think, twice a year so it’s a great time to stock up and/or try out some of the pricier items you’ve had your eye on. I’m a VIB level member so I wanted to make good use of my 15% off and get a few things. My haul this time around is pretty small, but I thought I’d share anyway. I stocked up on a few items and a few of the items are new/kind of new to me (I’ll explain what I mean by that a little further on in this post!)…

    The Emily Edit – The Wants Palette

    Have you ever watched Emily Noel’s YouTube channel – Beauty Broadcast? I used to watch her beauty videos all the time, but in the past 1-2 years I haven’t had time to watch YouTube like I used to! So it’s been quite a while since I’ve watched any of her videos, but I do follow her on social media still and she’s still one of my favorite beauty blogger/YouTubers. Well, she used to blog, I don’t know if she still updates that since she is most known for her YouTube channel. But anyway, the point of this post is that I got her eyeshadow palette – The Emily Edit –…

    Kylie Lip Kit – Candy K

    The Kylie Jenner Lip Kits exploded in the beauty world a couple years ago and I remember when they first came out they were constantly out of stock – they were that popular. I was intrigued, but not enough to sign up for restock alerts, stalk the website, or anything like that. In recent years I’ve also grown super tired of all things Kardashian so I wasn’t dying to get my hands on a lip kit. Nonetheless, I wouldn’t turn down a lip kit since people rave about them. So when my friend got me a kit in the shade “Candy K” for Christmas, I was excited to finally try…

    NARS Cheek Palette

    I have to preface this post by saying that sadly I don’t think this cheek palette is available anymore. I got it during the holidays but didn’t have a chance to share it before now. BUT, all the shades in it are staple NARS shades so you can easily buy them individually or in other cheek palettes in the future I’m sure since they are cult favorites. I mostly got this one just because I didn’t own these cult favorites on their own and the packaging was so cool! So I named this blog post “NARS Cheek Palette” because it’s really called NARS Orgasm Infatuation and I didn’t want that…

    L’Oreal Rouge Signature Matte Colored Ink

    If I had to choose between matte or glossy lip products, I almost always go with glossy. I like the look of gloss on my lips more than matte since most mattes are drying. With that being said, I still do like to try out matte lip products since they always look so good on others. Lucky for me L’Oreal and Influenster sent over some of the Rouge Signature Matte Colored Inks! I was sent 3 shades. From left to right: I Create, I Rule, and I Am Worth It. These lip inks are supposed to deliver a satin feel with the color impact of a liquid lipstick. They claim…

    MAC Skinfinish -Snowflushed

    I’m a little late with this post on MAC’s holiday release Skinfinish – Shiny Pretty Things in the shade “Snowflushed”, but it’s on sale right now so maybe I’m actually right on time? I always love checking out the MAC holiday collection because there’s always so much to choose from and the theme and packaging are always so pretty. This year I only picked up one item from the collection and it was this Extra Dimension Skinfinish / Shiny Pretty Things in “Snowflushed”. The mirrored silver compact holds the product inside which is embossed with a bow – so seasonally appropriate. I’m not going to lie, I mostly got this…

    It Cosmetics Superhero Mascara

    Quick beauty post for you! I love trying new mascaras and since I don’t wear false lashes I’m always looking for something that will volumize my lashes. Dior Overcurl has been my favorite for a long time, but it’s more expensive than the drugstore mascaras so I don’t buy it all the time. I had heard good things about the It Cosmetics mascara – Superhero Elastic Stretch Volumizing Mascara. It’s only a few dollars less than the Dior one but I wanted to try something new. The verdict? I love it! It’s definitely up there with  Dior Overcurl. Here’s how It Cosmetics describes it: “Imagine lashes so long and full,…

    Museum of Ice Cream x Sephora

    I’ve never been to Museum of Ice Cream, but I always see photos and videos of people going when it’s in their city and it looks like so much fun. Ice cream themed exhibits and a pool of sprinkles to dive in to – who wouldn’t want to go to that?! So to tide me over until I one day get to go, I had to browse the collaboration Museum of Ice Cream did with Sephora. There are multiple items in the collection such as a charm bracelet, cheek palette, eyeshadow palette (that looks like a popsicle or ice cream bar!), brushes, etc. A few years ago, I would buy…

    Sephora VIB Haul

    I was originally planning a different post for today, but it’s not quite ready to publish – I’m still waiting for a few photos to complete the post. In the meantime I’m sharing a haul. The big Sephora sale for VIB Rouge, VIB, and Beauty Insiders was a few weeks ago so I’d thought I’d show you my little haul. I wasn’t really in the need for anything major so my haul was pretty small, but I wanted to take advantage of the discount since Sephora only has these sales maybe two times a year. I have one (maybe 2) item that I’ve used before and 3 that are new.…

    Laura Mercier Translucent Powder

    My latest box from Influenster was an exciting one – Laura Mercier products! I think it’s definitely the most luxurious products they’ve sent me so far. I was thrilled to receive the Translucent Loose Setting Powder in the new “Glow” version along with a travel size with poof and the Glow Powder Brush. I’ve been wanting to try this loose setting powder for ages because everyone always raves about how silky smooth it is. Now I have not just one, but two! I’ve only been using this powder for a week, but it really is so lightweight and smooth. The brush has a special shape to fit the contours of…
