    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!)…

    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.…

    Recent Mask Loves

    A few days ago I wrote about the Dr. Jart+ Clear Skin Lover Rubber Mask I tried out, which I really liked. Today I’m sharing 2 new (to me) sheet masks that I’ve recently used. First up, the Sephora Green Tea Face Mask. I’ve tried and loved the Sephora Lotus and Rose masks before. Since I’ve been loving the Sephora sheet masks I, of course, wanted to try another one. The latest being this Green Tea one. The Green Tea one, “Mattifies and purifies to soothe skin, minimize shine, and reduce the appearance of outbreaks.” Calming down my skin and reducing the appearance of outbreaks sounds good to me! I enjoyed…

    Sephora Lotus Sheet Mask

    Sheet masks are nothing new. I’ve seen bloggers, YouTubers, and other social media users post pictures with their sheet masks for over a year now. I’d always wanted to try them out but never got around to it. Until now that is. In my last Sephora order, I decided to order 2 sheet masks from the Sephora brand. The price of sheet masks varies and since it was my first go with them I didn’t want to spend a lot. The Sephora ones are $6 so that was perfect for me. I bought the Lotus mask and the Rose mask. During my extra days off this week due to the snow…

    Sephora Perfection Mist Airbrush

    Have you tried any of the foundation sprays out there? I remember first becoming aware of them 4 years ago when Judy from ItsJudyTime had that very funny video of spraying the foundation on her face. Since then, the sprays have improved (according to all the videos and reviews I have seen over the years) so I finally picked one up for myself. I got the Sephora Perfection Mist Airbrush which retails for $28, which is pretty comparable to most middle of the road (luxury wise) foundations. I’ve heard that this is a dupe for the Dior’s Airflash Spray Foundation which is $62, so I went into this hoping that this $28 Sephora version…

    YSL Covetable Couture Beauty Icons

    Oh Monday. It’s the first day back to work for me after my winter break off. You know that feeling you get when you’re just so ecstatic to wake up early and head to work after a nice break? No? Me either. To brighten up my day a bit though I’m here to tell you about this Yves Saint Laurent Covetable Couture Beauty Icons kit that I got as a Sephora Beauty Insider points perk. I’ve never tried anything YSL before and when I saw that I had enough points to redeem this kit of mini sized products I had to grab it so I could give these popular items…

    Sephora VIB Haul

    Sephora recently had their sale for Beauty Insiders, VIBs and VIB Rouges. I never need an excuse to do some shopping and when Sephora is offering 15% off, count me in. Here’s what I got… Clinique Moisture Surge Face Spray –  I’ve been using Urban Decay’s B6 Complexion Prep Spray and Caudalie’s Grape Water  for over a year now and I wanted to give another spray a chance. Clinique All About Shadow 8-Pan Palette (A Black Honey Affair) – I haven’t really tried out Clinique’s shadows and I’ve heard great things about their 8-pan palettes so I thought I’d give this a try. I’ve only tried mini shadows by the brand…

    Sephora VIB Haul

    A couple of weeks ago I got the invitation in the mail for the Sephora VIB Sale. Since Sephora only has these 20% off sales two or three times a year, I definitely take advantage of them. I use these opportunities to stock up on items I’m running low on and buy some more high-end items since I have the discount. This time around I got: Caudalie Grape Water – I recently dedicated a post to this. I’m running low and wanted to purchase a back-up. Marc Jacobs Style  Eye-Con No. 7 Plush Shadow (The Dreamer) – I have been wanting to try something from Marc Jacobs Beauty for a…

    Ruffian Manicure

    I haven’t had time to do my nails in a few weeks. It’s been a busy few weeks at work with the end of the marking period so I had no time to myself that would allow me the time to do my nails and wait for them to dry. Well, the marking period just ended so I finally had a little time to myself over the weekend. Over the summer, I saw this cute manicure over at Beautezine and while looking for manicure ideas over on Pinterest over the weekend I came across the same idea again and wanted to give it a try. I used a white polish from…
