Finally! FINALLY! My goodies have arrived!!! Sephora did things a little differently this past Boxing Day, but I kind of liked it! I bought a few things online (somethings were online exclusives) and also picked up a couple of extras in store.
I picked up two of these sets!! It came with a mini Hold the Line waterproof eyeliner in “Call Me” and a full sized Full Bodied Lipgloss in “Yoo Hoo”. I already own quite a few of these eyeliners, but this set was worth it just for the lipgloss. The gloss is a beautiful nude shade with plumping effect (but no tingle).
I have used many smashbox products before but none of these ones (yay!). I’m already loving the Photo Finish Hydrating Under Eye Primer. It doesn’t provide all the coverage I would want for my undereye (it says it can be worn alone) but it is a great base to use before applying concealer to the sensitive eye area. The Photo Finish Foundation Primer is Oil-Free and although I don’t wear foundation, will still work well under a BB cream. I love trying new mascaras and the Full Exposure Mascara is no exception. I did receive a sample of this in my Shopper’s Drug Mart Eye Studio Sampler, but I haven’t tried it yet (I have soooo many minis to use!).
I couldn’t help but snap up this deal! I already own and love the Truth Serum Collagen Booster. I love to put a layer on in the morning before I apply my moisturizer. I have never tried the Pure Truth Youth Activating Oil but I am super excited to add this to my skincare routine!
It’s no secret that I LOVE this mascara! A girl can never have too
much sex many minis. I’m so glad they brought this set back (they offered it a year or two ago) because the eyeliner (Perfect Eyes Eyeliner in Perfect Black) is pretty awesome too. Thanks to recent sale purchases, it’s safe to say I’m pretty stocked on black eyeliners!!
I love my BareMinerals i.d. bronzer so I am beyond thrilled to add the i.d. blush to my collection! It is a very natural looking blush that is perfect for a minimalist or everyday look. As for the Marvelous Moxie lipgloss (in Hot Shot AND full size!) it is the most perfect flamingo hued pink. This is my first experience with the Marvelous Moxie line!! The applicator seems a little flimsy (I prefer them harder
that’s what she said). But the gloss itself is lovely.
A $6 lipgloss? Clearly this was an impulse buy (aren’t they all?). I just couldn’t resist with such a low price tag! This formula is filled with sparkle and shine!
Bumble and Bumble Styling Lotion Spray used to be my favorite go to hair care product in high school. But I haven’t used Bumble and Bumble products since (no idea why? It just happened that way!). I’m sure excited to try these products out and see if I can recreate that spark I used to have with B&B!
This lip and cheek duo are “intuitive”, meaning they appear clear, but once applied will change color and tint based on your skin’s pH and energy. How fun! I do like both of these products, however you need to be mindful of how much product you apply, especially the cheek stain. It goes on clear so it is very easy to apply way too much. Also, with the lip balm, be careful to not let it get on the skin outside of your lips, because it WILL turn your skin pink too! I enjoyed seeing my personal color (which on my lips took on a purple undertone!).
This item was not a Boxing Day special, but I really wanted the duo and they were sold out in store. I love that there are two lipsticks in one “stick”. This is sooo perfect for travel!! I purchased the shades Violet and Palomino. Violet is a beautiful purple fuchsia, and Palomino is a bright true pink (blue undertones?). I’m loving Bite Beauty lately!!
That’s my haul. Oh my. I have bought so much makeup lately. But these deals!!! My online order made me hit Rouge, and although I picked my kit up in store, they sent me another kit with my online order (but without the card). I was so excited to get a second exclusive Bite Beauty Rouge Lipstick but it seems my German Shepherd was more excited. I found him helping himself to the tube (good thing Bite Beauty is all about edible lipstick!!). I was able to scoop some of the remaining product out into a tiny jar, but the tube itself was totalled! Silly puppy!!
