For my birthday, I was generously given some Sephora gift cards (thank you-you know who you are❤️) and did me a little shoppin’. I actually had the Fenty Beauty Foundation in my cart, and by the time I went to check out and put the gift card info in? Sold out. Wtf. S’ok. Next time.
Even better, it was delivered on a Sunday-it came vis LaserShip, and I’ve heard horror stories about them, but no issues yesterday. On with the makeup!
The other foundation I wanted to try was the stuff from the new peach line from Too Faced-
It has a pump, and I was expecting a stronger fragrance from it, but it’s a very light, sort of sweet smell-more sweet fig, less peach. This foundation retails for 32$.
It’s probably in the thinner side consistency wise, but not watery at all. I’m in the shade Porcelain, and it seems to be a good match.
Next, since this is literally all over IG and the internet, I really wanted to try the Huda Beauty Lip Strobes-
I LOVE the packaging. The gloss itself is thick but not goopy, and it’s not sticky when applied. This is the shade Angelic.
The doe foot applicator is cool-angled and really makes for accurate application. The formula is gorgeous-you can wear it alone or as a topper as well. These retail for 18$. She’s got a ton of shades too-all really pretty.
Last, I’ve been really really REALLY wanting to try the Farsali Unicirn Essence and the Rose Gold Elixir but for 54$?? That was just an awful lot of money to try something. Luckily for me Sephora started selling minis of both! You get 0.34 ounces for 20$, which for me was far easier to swallow than 54$.
It smells GOOD, not heavy or overpowering though which is nice. You can use it as a primer (which seemingly all the you tubers and IG chicks seem to do, letting it run down their faces like purple tears. You won’t see me doing that. Dumb.) or you can use it as a night time serum, or to enhance your highlighter.
Here are the drops alone, then rubbed into the skin. There are little flecks if gold, and when rubbed in there’s a slight luminosity. I like it, actually, it’s not glitter and not like, gleaming to outer space.
Now for the freebies!
My birthday gift-
You all know how much I love Caudalie, and I’m excited to try the serum. It’s funny, I just got into serums a month or 2 ago and now I have like, 5.
I used some of my points for this-Urban Decay Naked Skin Highlighting Fluid-It’s pretty tiny, but whatevs. It was only 100 points. I haven’t had much luck with UD highlighting products-I had one of the powder highlight palettes and hated it, pure glitter, zero pigment. I gave it away. So I’m hoping this is better.
The swatch looks promising-we’ll see how it performs on the face.
Thats all for Sephora!
Talk soon Lovelies
