Happy Friday everyone!! I know it might seem like I just did a Sephora Haul… And I did! Guess what? I have a shopping problem…
Anyway I’ve been waiting for the sale to specifically purchase these products so I thought I’d share! And unlike most of my hauls, I’ve been using these products for about a week (the sale for VIB was Nov. 13th-16th) so I can give a little review as well!
Tarte’s “LipSurgance Matte Lip Tint” in the shade “Envy”. This is ah-mazing. Perfect shade for fall, I wish I had gotten this so much sooner! I didn’t see the hype over this honestly, mostly because it’s $24 and it’s pretty much Revlon’s balms (which I adore and are around $8). But the pigmentation and staying power is incredible. Like the Revlon balms it smells or peppermint, which I am a fan of, and doesn’t dry out your lips. This lasted all day at work and never needed a touch up! And this shade is a lovely dusty rose, mauve (shocker I know).
Next is something I’ve wanted for a long time but couldn’t bring myself to buy it…
Laura Mercier’s “Caviar Stick Eye Color” in the shade “Khaki”. I’ve wanted to try it because everyone raves about it and it’s cheaper than Bobbi Brown’s shadow sticks and apparently better. But my issues is that I never really do anything with my eyes except liner… Lately I played around with a mini Bobbi Brown shadow stick and doing a smokey eye with it and have been loving it. So with the sale I said why not?! I AM IN LOVE!! Its a lovely taupe, gray, brown and just blends out like a dream and stays all day. New favorite thing!
I then got…
A mini rollerball of the ElizabethANDJames “Nirvana Black” perfume that smells amazing. Its such a lovely scent for fall and winter (though I still love my Armani “Si” I thought I would switch it up haha) and it’s rare for me to like a scent. It’s not too strong or too sweet or too musky. I really like it, but if you like sweeter I’d recommend the “White” version of it!
Then I had some points so I tried a nail polish brand I’ve been dying to try but once again, rarely do my nails (as you know if you read my last post haha)
A mini Formula X nail polish in the shade “Obsessed” a beautiful ox blood color and perfect for fall! It’s what is on my nails in these pictures (but they do have filters over them, it’s a lot darker in person). I don’t know how I feel about this brand, it seemed to chip really easily on me. I don’t know if that’s the nail polish formula itself, the fact that I’m used to gels and they don’t budge, or the fact that work was super busy and I use my hands a lot and they take a beating at work… Who knows haha a very pretty color though!
And that’s all I purchased! I hope you all have a lovely weekend!
Until next time,
