Cyber Monday Stila Haul

Screen Shot 2017-12-08 at 7.25.13 PM

Finally arrived in the mail today! I ordered from Stila this Cyber Monday because I really wanted the Glitter & Glow Liquid Eyeshadow in Wanderlust. While I was shopping, I picked up the Got Inked Cushion Eye Liner in Black Obsidian (only $4!!!), the Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner in Olive ($10 on sale!!!), the Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Patina ($15!!!), and swooped up the bonus sample of the mini black Stay All Day Liquid Eye Liner in Black. Sweet!

 

I swear by those Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liners. Although, the last two Brown ones I’ve gotten have not been as good as before…

 

The Glitter & Glow Liquid Eyeshadow is BRIGHT. It is SO glittery. Definitely a special occasion look for me. I’m more into the mattes and ‘natural’ look, so this is going to be for Night Outs. But I know a lot of you can pull it off during the day too! It is extremely pretty.

Too Faced Mystery Bag!

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!

SPOILER ALERT!!!

I opened up the Mystery Bag as fast as I could – I love surprises!

And…

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!

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…

 Screen Shot 2017-09-09 at 9.41.06 AM

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?

Clean your Brushes!

How often do you clean your make-up brushes? I do at least once a week – usually on Sunday evening! It is very important to do this to keep them bacteria-free and to keep your make up fresh. Gentle soap and water works fine and be sure to let them air dry. Also, be sure not to get the part at the handle and metal interface wet or the bristles can become unglued.

Mail Day – Alchemist Holographic Palette by Kat Von D!

Beauty

image

This beauty arrived today! I am so excited to try it out! I was lusting after the Alchemist Holographic Palette by Kat von D but it had sold out. But then, it was re-stocked on the Kat von D website and I absolutely had to have it.

image

The package arrived in seductive black Kat von D tissue in a Kat von D box.

image

After the holographic box was removed, this pearly opalescent white triangle of a palette was in my hands.

And opening it, I saw the four beautiful unicorn-like shades. There are enough swatches out there on the internet showing off how lovely the colors are. I will put together a beautiful ephemeral look with these colors and transform myself into a mermaid unicorn!

It’s back in stock on the Kat Von D online store. You can purchase it here!!!

I just did, and no regrets now. It is still sold out in Sephora. I am totally excited about this palette. It wont be for work/every day – but it will be for when I want to look like a glamorous unicorn on those nights out.

Sugarpill’s Pumpkin Spice lipstick & eyeshadow has arrived just in time for Christmas! 

Getting this little box was super exciting today. I just *love* Sugarpill’s packaging. Their mailer-box is even so super cute and pink. Soooo adorable.

In my panic to order Pumpkin Spice, I ordered 2 of both the lipstick and eyeshadow. I was scared that it would sell out. It totally didn’t sell out! I’m saving them as back ups and might gift them to one of my bffs who likes make up. 🙂

This is the back of the eyeshadow box – how cute is that?!?
