Every year on Cyber Monday Too Faced has a limited edition Mystery Bag up for grabs. This year, I snagged one and it arrived today! So exciting!
I opened up the Mystery Bag as fast as I could – I love surprises!
The contents of this Mystery Bag included — a mini Better than Sex mascara, a full sized Creme lipstick in Double Bubble (bright bubblegum pink), a full sized Perfect Eyes black waterproof eye liner, a full sized Size Queen mascara, and the Too Faced Peanut Butter palette. That is a pretty good deal for $39!!!
I already have the Too Faced Peanut Butter palette, so I am deciding whether I should keep it as a fresh one, or sell it…
The Better than Sex mascara is ALWAYS included with everything as a bonus, so that wasn’t really a shocker to me.
The bubblegum pink lipstick is actually really fun and cute – I tried it on right away. It is a little sheer so it is not overwhelmingly pink like a liquid lipstick.
I’ll be trying the eye liner and Size Queen mascara tomorrow.
All in all, it was a great purchase and I hope to snag one of these Mystery Bags next year! Mystery Bags are super fun!
… Yes, I’m back to blogging now. I took a looooong break. I was super busy with life – i moved! And we all know that moving is stressful!
I picked up this sweet little set of mini lipsticks by Urban Decay at the Sephora Holiday Preview Event yesterday. This is a great selection of five lipstick colors (pictured below) and will be great for my every mood. They are smaller sized than the regular Vice lipsticks. It’s really a cute little set.
1993 is my fav, actually, because it takes me back to high school days. Back then, we coveted MAC lipsticks and Twig was THE shade with an obvious lip liner around it. And when it wasn’t Twig, it was frosty pinky purples like B-Cup and Pervette (also by MAC). Oh yeah, and of course a MAC eyeshadow in a tacky blue – Tilt was the one – metallic AF.
Okay, I just dated myself. Totally. This makes me think of a convo I heard in a Sephora not too long ago where a prospective employee was being interviewed. They were quizzing her on the history of Urban Decay and were like ‘do you know how UD started?’ She was like ‘…that is before my time…’ I knew… nail polish. I didn’t say though, since I didn’t feel like ruining the vibe of her interview. I was such a Urban Decay fan. When they branched out into eye shadows and lipsticks, I snapped up as many as I could. That Vice re-release of retro shades – I had all of them… And those individual eye shadow pans – I loved it. Those wild colors… And as much Hard Candy as I could afford for my nails. We all wore those ugly plastic jelly rings from HC polishes. OKAY! I have to stop. Too much 90s flashback.
Have a Happy Sunday!
The special Holiday Preview event at Sephora for VIB Rouge members! September 9th, from 8:30am to 10am – I was there…
I am away on holiday now, but that didn’t stop me from going to the local Sephora and indulging. Below is a picture of the Gift with Purchase – a totally sweet Sephora make up bag with cute lips all over it, and some beauty sample-sized items.
The sample items included Fenty Beauty by Rihanna Pro Filt’r primer and foundation, Drunk Elephant Lala Retro Whipped Cream, Too Faced Better than Sex Mascara, Amore Pacific vintage single extract essence, Farmacy’s Honey Savior all in one skin repair salve, Algenist’s advanced lift contouring cream, and Giorgio Armani’s ecstasy shine lip color.
I did also indulge a little too much and my haul is pictured below…
I picked up two of the Holiday Preview items – the Urban Decay Little Vice set of lipsticks and the Smashbox shadow & light travel sized palette set. I also picked up a few things on my beauty shopping list including another Urban Decay Vice full sized lipstick, a Too Faced Peach Kiss lipstick, the mini travel sized Kat Von D under-eye circle set, as well as a lip liner in a shade that will hopefully go with some of the lipsticks in the box.
I picked up a few more things than planned, but I haven’t had a beauty splurge in a while…
Did you go to your local Sephora for this VIB Rouge event?
I was so excited to receive the Sephora Give Me Some Nude Lip Set – mostly because I was looking forward to finally getting an appropriate lip liner. But the set was MISSING the lip liner!!! I called Sephora Customer Service and they were such dolls, helping me out. They are sending me the lip liner separately. I didn’t use any of the items yet, since I thought I’d have to send back my set, but they were kind enough to trust me. That is great service. Highly recommend Sephora!!!
When I saw the 500 point Beauty Insider reward from Too Faced, I knew it was time to spend some of the points I had accumulated. It did not disappoint!!! This cute box of treats had me all excited! I opened it and found the sweetest mini Chocolate Bar palette – perfect size for traveling! It also came with a mini eyeshadow primer, better than sex mascara, and Melted liquid lipstick.
The shades in the mini Chocolate Bar palette are totally perfect. The Chocolate Soleil tint is perfect for a sun kissed glow. I love Too Faced and am excited to bring this palette with me on my next trip!!!
Too Cool For School is the brand that brought us Egg Mellow Butter (a DREAM!) and I was curious to try their cosmetics line. What better places to start than with a lip tint! That stained, i-just-drank-a-red-drink lip look is very trendy these days and I am always looking for something to achieve this. So I purchased the Dinoplatz Lost Identity Lip Tint in #1 Lost in You. It is sooooo cute!
The packaging really caught my eye! Look at how this pencil was wrapped and the artwork inside! LOVE!
I have tried this and actually have used it almost every day going to work this week. Next I want to try another shade and another product of theirs. The Mascara, maybe? Has anyone tried anything else from Dinoplatz?
I totally can’t wait! Feline Fancy is coming my way! There are still sets available here. Grab one before they’re all sold out!
Excited! This is coming out at 12pm PST TODAY!!!
I am going to try my hardest to order this as soon as it drops while I’m at work today. It just looks so pretty and anything pink with hearts I *love*!!!
I couldn’t resist and ordered the Kiss Up Metallic Clutch from Nasty Gal! It arrived today and made my Monday WAAAAAY brighter.
Rose Gold is so trendy right now and I love lip-shaped things – so this isperfect! It is a very reflective rose gold and comes with a detachable cross-body strap. There is an inside slip pocket. It won’t hold much – an iPhone, lipstick and a couple cards at best – but who needs more than that?
I look at lip-shaped clutches as the perfect statement accessory to instantly take your outfit to that next level. Something like this is totally fun for a night out, or even a day out. Any time, really.
You can pick one up for yourself on the Nasty Gal website here.
On my Poshmark closet, I have this Circus by Sam Edelman clutch/cross body bag up for grabs!!!
