Little Sephora Haul ❤️

64ACC682-30DE-4AE4-9E87-D911D0DA5400

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-

D173FFA0-B202-427F-B55E-C711D4BE9604It 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-

7320D05B-3D5A-4EB8-B031-7486805E52DEI 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$.

1B4EA599-499B-4979-A05C-7580B235E60DIt 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-

336D7549-0D73-4242-B68B-617D85071D5CYou 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-E5796D20-B71E-4DBA-B8B8-6E4F5406ACFD.jpegIt’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.

8B073500-7815-4162-85A5-98881EA12452The swatch looks promising-we’ll see how it performs on the face.

Thats all for Sephora!

Talk soon Lovelies

Too Faced Peaches & Cream Collection 


It’s heeeeere.

The Too Faced Peaches and Cream Collection has dropped, and I’m drooling. 

The collection consists of foundation, an eyeshadow palette, primer, bronzer, blush, highlighter, matte lipsticks, setting powder, and setting spray-all infused with peach and sweet fig cream. I know a lot of people have peach exhaustion, and I get it. But, my Too Faced Sweet Peach palette is one of my favorites, and I’d love to see if they pulled this off. 

The eyeshadow palette is all mattes:


The collection has a bronzer that looks like a latticed pie, and I’ve heard good things about it. The blush, bronzer, and highlight not so much.


I absolutely want the foundation though. It smells like peach 🍑 


Now, I absolutely agree that Too Faced has over saturated the market with subpar palettes lately, so I hope this sort of redeems them. This collection is sold exclusively at Sephora and on TooFaced.com. Which is good for me, because I’m hoping the fam gives me sephora gift cards for the old birthday on Friday. 🤞

Thoughts?

Coming Soon To A Sephora, Ulta, or Walgreens Near You

This fall is bringing a TON of new brands to various stores, and they are mighty exciting, Lovelies.

First, new at Sephora this fall you will see:

ColourPop
Volution
Tom Ford Beauty
Moon Juice
Antonym

And the highly anticipated makeup line from Rihanna, Fenty Beauty, hits Sephora shelves Sept. 18.

I am THRILLED to see ColourPop in Sephora. Y’all know how I feel about ColourPop.

Ulta will be bringing you:

Frank Body
Dose of Colors

And Memebox, makers of Disco Kitten Diamond Peel-off Mask, which is so sold out, its nearly impossible to get. They have several other must have products, but Disco Kitten is probably the most recognized.

And lastly, the brands you’ll be seeing on Walgreens shelves this fall:

Sleek MakeUP-usually found in the U.K., this affordable and pretty awesome brand has been slowly creeping over to our shores. They have to die for highlighting palettes.

NYX- I thought NYX was at Walgreens but it’s definitely not. But not for long!

There you have it, Lovelies. It’s going to be an amazing fall.

Talk soon, Lovelies

Sephora Play! June Review

My Sephora Play! bag came earlier this week and I’m just getting to it now. I actually had a busy week, come to think of if it. So let’s jump right in to things, shall we?

This month has the usual drawstring bag, last month they switched it up but went back to the usual for June.

The first item we have is First Aid Beauty Hello FAB Coconut Skin Smoothie Priming Moisturizer

img_3056
Holy moly that’s a long name. It’s a glowing, slightly luminizing primer. I used it yesterday, and I have to say after 4 hours my makeup was splotching between my brows and on my forehead. So it didn’t really make my makeup last. At all. However, as a moisturizer it’s fine, a light coconut scent.
****
Another primer, Benefit The POREfessional.

img_3072
I’ve used this before, wasn’t my most favorite ever in the world? But it’s decent.
****
Here we have OUAI Rose Gold Hair and Body Oil

img_3073
It contains rose hip oil, shea oil, and absinthium oil. A light rise scent-it was nice in my hair, not heavy and helped smooth it out. Also nice on the skin. It comes in a spray pump, which I like.
****
Next is IGK Rich Kid Coconut Oil Gel

img_3074
This is supposed to help you get beachy hair, it’s supposed to separate strands for that perfectly tousled bedhead-at-the-beach look. I tried it and it did seem to separate strands, it’s got a fresh scent as well that’s not overpowering.
****
Last but certainly not least is Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in the shade K-Dub.

img_3075
It’s sort of a bright fuschia-pinky color but it’s not garish. I was really looking forward to trying this too, I don’t have any of her liquid lips and I’ve heard good things.

img_3076
I do like it. It’s not streaky, it’s unscented, and it’s nice. I’m just not going to store it next to my Jeffree Star liquid lip 😳😛😱

So that’s it-the June Sephora Play-I’m happy with it, some things I would have normally never tried and some things I wanted to. All in all? Pretty decent!!

New Too Faced Just Peach

If you loved the Too Faced Sweet Peach line, you’re in luck. In September, they’re coming out with a new line of foundations, shadows, blushes and lips called Just Peachy Mattes that are infused with that familiar Peach essence and some sort of Italian Sweet Fig Creme. First off, these are going to smell SO GOOD. I can’t wait. Secondly, it’s supposed to be a whole new matte experience. The shadows look pretty creamy-I can’t wait to check this line out.
