I know I haven’t posted in so long and while I could sit here and write to you about all my excuses (finals, stress, etc.), I’m just going to skip that part and say I’m sorry that I haven’t updated my blog in a LONG time, but I’m back and with a beauty loaded post.
First, I have a small Sephora haul that I got with my gift card from my birthday.
So far, I’ve been really enjoying this and have found this to be a winning combination against dark circles!
Also, I received the Sephora Beauty Insider Birthday Gift from benefit and love it!
First off, the mascara wasn’t anything spectacular to me, but the highlighter is absolutely adorable! I love the the cream stick formulation and the size of it! It makes it ideal for traveling!
I also bought some nail polish that was on sale:
These are just the Sephora brand nail polishes and I haven’t tried them yet but the colors are so cute!
I also got some MAC cosmetics items (although they don’t really qualify as makeup).
I haven’t really had the chance to use the Fix + Spray yet, but I have tried the Brush cleanser and I absolutely love it, but then again this is coming from a girl who usually uses dish soap to wash her brushes.
Last, but not least, I bought a refill of Clinique’s Moisture Surge Intense. This time I got the larger size of 2.5 oz for $49.50 versus the regular size of 1.7 oz for $37.00 which saved me about $2 an ounce (not much, but hey, every bit counts. This is my 3rd repurchase of the product and I think that now makes it Holy Grail Staus because I honestly only use this now and have never looked back.
That is a lot of products, but I think I’m still staying true to my goals for this year because I purchased items that I absolutely did not have any alternative to or were free like the Beauty Insider Gifts.
I’m also now completely out of powder so I’ll tell you all about it when I get one! Also, any recommendations for a great setting powder would be greatly appreciated.
