Sephora recently had a sale, which is a big deal seeing as they only do 2 sales a year. This was the first sale of the year and while I did get some things, I didn't get as excited as I normally do about these Sephora sales. I usually will wait for these types of sales to get more "bang for my buck" but this time there just wasn't a lot that I was interested in, I did however stumble on some great finds and get some things that I actually had been meaning to and needed to get for a while. So lets get into it.
First I knew I was going to get the new Kat Von D Shade+Light quad in Rust. I have an entire review on this. Its the previous post actually.
Then I went on to get these things:
Ardency Inn Punker waterproof liquid liner. It's supposed to be matte and awesome. I will be doing a test to see if it's better than my inexpensive Jessie's Girl liquid liner. I do like it but I will say it's not as great as I thought it would be. It's a good basic liquid liner though.
Clinique Take The Day Off Towelettes. These are new and a GREAT find. This is the Clinique "Take The Day Off" remover in a towelette, that's easy on your eyes and takes off EVERYTHING. It has 50 towelettes in it for just $15! Standard wipes are 30 count but this is 50 and I think the price is very reasonable. I'm super excited about it. Way to go Clinique.
Smashbox X Rated Mascara Sample. This seems very nice and thin which I tend to like. It coats each lash individually without clumping them and makes them look much nicer maybe even a little longer by keeping them separated and noticeably darker.
Ralph Lauren Midnight Romance Perfume. I have very few perfumes (about 4 or 5) and I recently ran out of one. I can't wear a lot of scents, they give me headaches and don't work with my body chemistry but this one I can wear and I get excited when I actually find one I can wear. I wait till I can get some money off or extra points before buying one because truthfully, I hate buying perfume. I really really hate it but I like wearing it. It's a viscous cycle.
Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation in #4. This isn't new. I know. I'm late to the game on this. I just wanted to try it. So far it's a nice foundation with about a medium coverage I think. I have other foundations that go on better surprisingly. I expected to love this like everyone else but I don't feel it's necessary right now. I'm going to keep trying it though. Luckily they have come out with a smaller size bottle for $20 less for people who either want to give it a shot or like me have a ton of foundation and have a hard time getting through a full foundation. So that is a really awesome perk.
Make Up For Ever HD Pressed Powder travel size. Another thing that I have very little of is pressed powder. I'm not a powder type person and I prefer loose powder over all but that's not ideal for traveling so I quickly realized that I needed a travel sized powder because I've been away from home a lot so far this year. I got this strictly for setting the under eye, and it works very nice. I'm glad I have it. Again though, it's not something I enjoy buying.
Lastly, Algenist Color Correcting Finishing Powder. This was a hidden gem. It's new and so far I'm loving the Algenist makeup line. I'm going to do a full review on this. Check my Instagram (@lovemascara) for pictures of what the powder actually looks like cause it's crazy looking but I'm not lying when I say my skin has never looked better. I've never gotten compliments on my skin being smooth or whatever until I used this. Sure you hear stuff about your makeup looking nice but people were actually saying that my skin looked and smooth and almost airbrushed. This stuff is wonderful and I can't wait to do a review on it.
So that's everything. It's not all that exciting but I don't do very many hauls and I always like seeing what people get and why they got it so I hope this might help some of you too. If you're looking for something specific that is. I have a lot of posts coming up so get ready for that and if you want daily rambles and early thoughts on products then follow me on snapchat (loveandmascara). I'm always swatching stuff, talking about products, or even testing out makeup along with venting my frustrations. So come hang out with me.
