Sephora Sale Haul

It took me a little bit of researching to figure out what I wanted, but here’s what I got from the Sephora VIB sale. I was running low on my skin care so I decided to try out some new products. Yeah, I’m hoping my skin doesn’t hate me for this…


Left to right: Smashbox Photofinish Primer To Go, Dermadoctor Poetry in Lotion, REN Frankincense And Boswellia Serrata Revitalising Night Cream, Philosophy When Hope is Not Enough SPF, Benefit Silky Finish Lipstick Jing-A-Ling

I also received a bonus VIB gift for buying too much crap. I’ve actually used the Ole Henriksen Three Little Wonders in the past and while I didn’t love it, I really liked the Truth Serum (orange bottle). It smoothed my skin and made it glow.

Expect reviews to be coming for the featured products soon. I also bought the Too Faced Natural Eye Neutral Eyeshadow Collection but it was a present for a friend.

My Sephora Wish List

With the Sephora Sale starting today, I’ve compiled a wish list of things I’d like. I’ll probably only end up getting a couple things but oh would I love to blow tons of money get everything I want 🙂

Tarina Tarantino Candy Cameo Fashion Collection -because I like pink and I like cameos dangit.
Too Faced Natural Eye Neutral Eye Shadow Collection -I’ve been lemming this perfect palette.
Clarins Instant Smooth Perfecting Touch -I’ve heard so many good things about this primer.
Hourglass Superficial Lash Mascara – I’m a mascara junkie and would love to try this one out.
Benefit Silky-Finish Lipstick in Jing-A-Ling (Pearl warm pale pink) -I tried this last week and loved it. It’s a perfect pale glossy pink color.

What have you been lemming in the beauty world recently? Let me know in the comments!

March Favorites

It’s time for my March Favorites! These are items I couldn’t get enough of in the month of March. Apparently, I was really into corals, go me! As always, click on the picture to make it larger.

Dior Bronze Harmonie de Blush in Coral Riviera 002- it’s described as “tawny corals” on Sephora’s site. This is a HG blush for me. It gives a glow to my cheeks when I use the colors together, and in a pinch I can use the middle bronze color to contour and add warmth to my face. Love this mofo.

MAC’s Shell Pearl Beauty Powder– I put down my MAC MSF Candlelight in March in favor of Liberty of London’s Shell Pearl. I love the soft pearly cheek highlight it gave me, especially since it had staying power. Since it’s a beauty powder, you can also wear it as a blush, but I have yet to do that.

MAC’s Birds & Berries Eyeshadow– I’m a sucker for teal eyeshadow. This one came out as a limited edition with the Liberty of London collection for MAC. This color is so versatile. I used it all over my lid, in the crease, with purples, greys, taupes, browns, pinks, etc.

MAC’s Cha Cha Lipglass– Hello pretty lippie. Cha Cha is a medium pink with gold pearl from the Spring Color Forecast collection (looks coralish).

Milani Liquif’Eye Eye Liner Pencil in brown- I reviewed this liner and am still in love with it. I’ve ventured back to Target a few times looking for black but was always sold out.

Review: Dr Brandt pores no more vacuum cleaner

Like anyone, I get a croppage of blackheads across my nose. Even with a Clarisonic, they’re not as prominent but they’re there still. After receiving a sample of Dr. Brandt’s pores no more vacuum cleaner, I immediately bought the full size bottle when they were having the friend’s and family deal at Sephora.

Quick take- slightly pricey but works, receives an A.


According to Sephora, Dr. Brandt  pores no more® vacuum cleaner™ helps loosen blackheads by absorbing dirt and excess oil. The complexion is left smooth, clear, and refined.
Directions on the box/bottle:
-Apply a thin layer to areas of concern.
-Avoid contact with eyes.
-Leave on 5 to 10 minutes until product is dry and turns light blue (a cooling sensation will occur).
-Rinse with warm water and pat dry.
-Use 2-3 times weekly or as needed.
-Follow with pores no more® refiner for maximum effectiveness.

With your first use, you wont notice a huge difference, but I noticed that the product had greatly loosened my blackheads. Not to be gross, but they all extracted like buttah. With a couple months of use, I can tell that my crops have mostly died off. I use the product once a week (without extracting), and I’ve noticed that what blackheads I still have are definitely smaller (they’re not all gone).
The product itself applies like a clear gel and dries an iridescent white-blue. What I love is that it does not stain my bath towels unlike other masks. What I don’t love is the price of $45 but they give you a full 1 oz.

Dr. Brandt  pores no more® vacuum cleaner™ is available at Sephora and at Dr. Brandt Skincare online.

Here’s some stuffie stuff I bought this past week.

You can’t tell but it has a cute ruffle at the top. It’s not on the site yet but it’s by h.i.p.

Couldn’t pass up Betsey for $25.

Made a quick stop at Sephora to pick up some face cleanser by First Aid Beauty $18. I’d tried a sample of it and loved it. Expect a full review soon!

 

I also bought some nude shoes, yay! These are Seychelles “Kick up your heels” So far they’re pretty comfy!
