October Sephora Play!

Hello Lovelies!

I was recently sick but I am starting (*cough* trying *cough*) to get better. I am so glad too because it is just in time to unbox my Sephora Play box. I am so sad though because I had to unsubscribe for November due to some unforeseen financial issues. As soon as everything is fixed up I’ll either get another beauty subscription to try our or re-subscribe to Sephora Play

I didn’t really like this months bag, I wonder if you can tell why. I’m most likely gonna toss it since I have nothing to do with it anyway. Usually I separate my samples by what they are (i.e. Hair, face, fragrance) but I don’t need one right now.

BECCA First Light Filter Face Primer

Creme-liquid primer that moisturizes while delivering a subtle glow with ultra-fine light-reflecting pearl

 

I’ve never tried Becca Cosmetics before so I am super excited to try this out. Since ‘Winter is Coming” I think this would be amazing to try out.

MAKE UP FOREVER Ultra HD Invisible Cover Foundation

Fan-favorite foundation that provides natural-looking coverage in every light.

 

I have been wanted to try out some new foundation lately and honestly I don’t got too many in my subscription boxes. Plus I love Make Up Forever!

MAKE UP FOREVER Ultra HD Skin Booster

Skin-perfecting serum that instantly smooths, plumps, and hydrates skin with argan oil.

 

Woo! Another Make up forever product and  a serum to boot! I was looking for a serum to invest in and here I got one to try. I can’t wait to see how it feels on my skin

LAURA MERCIER Translucent Powder

Sheer Loose setting powder that creates a soft-focus finish for a look that lasts all day.

 

I have another setting powder but I just keep forgetting to use it. It will be a while before I can get to try this out, but I promise I will!

CHANEL Gabrielle Chanel

It instantly hits you with beauty, passion, elegance and intrigue all at the same time!

 

Okay, I am ashamed to say that I didn’t even really smell it before I shoved it away with all my other perfume samples. It’s not my fault thought because I’m in the middle of packing and I needed to pack it away.

COVER FX Custom Enhancer Drops in Moonlight

Customizable highlighting drops that add a subtle glow or high-beam gleam

 

This is the one product that I am so happy I got! I’ve heard great things about COVER FX that I have been wanting to try one of their products for a while now. I really hope this works well.

 

 

Well that’s my SEPHORA PLAY box this month. Do you get SEPHORA PLAY? What was you fave product?

Sephora Play! June ‘Summer Starters’ Unboxing

Summer is here and boy do I feel it. The temperature and been in the 90s and the AC has been running more than I want (for the animals sake). Sephora knows this is so they choose to send me some products that hopefully will help in this heat.

The bag is so cute this month, and it sort of goes a long with my state of mind. I have been swimming every week and I love it.

The first product I pulled out I was a bit disappointed in, I have so many samples of Benefit POREfessional face primer than I know what to do with. Yeah I know it works well but EVERY SINGLE BOX loves to give me tons of it. I mean come on, I’d like to try out different primers every once in a while.

I don’t use Make up setting spray but I think I probably should especially since this one by Coola is SPF 30.  It seems a little weird to spray your face after putting make up all over it, and considering that you should reapply every too hours makes it a little tedious to use, but the question is… Does it work?

I am no longer a drive a way from the ocean, a river maybe but the sea breeze and soft grainy sand will not be felt on my toes when I get a whimsy. So I guess I will have to use this Sea Spray by Verb to try to capture the feel of the salty water in my hair. Oh how I miss it.

I love Kat Von D cosmetics so getting this Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in  Lovesick is great. Plus this stuff has lasting power, it took such a long time to get the color off my hand when I swatched it that I have to make sure I put this stuff on carefully. The color is great to I can’t wait to wear it.

I am so happy I got this, I’ve been using Dry Shampoo like crazy so to get some especially from a brand I love is great and I can’t wait to see how it works!

I have been having major allergies lately so my nose has been stuffed, so because of that I have yet to really smell what BVLGARI Omina Crystalline smells like. In the description it has hints of lotus Flower, Nashi, and Balsa wood. Don’t know what any of those smell like so it should be fun

This box was pretty good and I can’t wait to see what next month brings. What do you all think?

April Sephora Play Unboxing

It’s been so rainy here lately, yet also surprisingly sunny. Weather is weird, maybe it’s the whole spring thing in a new state that actually has seasons! Anyway I just got my Sephora play box and this month’s theme is STEP IT UP! Which is what I actually have been trying to do lately!

Just like always the box comes with a a cute little bag. I really like this bag and the fact that it says ‘The Best Things in Life are Me!’, very motivational.

I’ve surprisingly have been running out of moisturizer lately so I got this Peter Thomas Roth Water Drench Hyaluronic Cloud Cream. Can I just ask what is all these super long names for products lately? I’ve never used this brand before so I am excited to use this.

While I need moisturizer, I really don’t need facial cleansers. I’ve actually never have used Philosophy before, mostly because it is a bit out of my price range. This Made Simple Face Cleanser is suppose to be good and gentle for sensitive skin.

I have like five of these little Iconic Photo Finish Foundation Primer from Smashbox. Please stop sending them to me, I cannot use them fast enough. I DONT NEED ANY MORE.

Make Up Forever is one of my most favorite brands so I am happy to have gotten this Aqua XIL Eye Pencil Waterproof Eyeliner. I am definitely going to use this on my waterline on those dramatic days.

Sephora Collection Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover is something that I am not sure that I would be using considering that I got that make up remover cloth. Plus this seems like it has oil in it.

I’m actually pretty excited to smell this as I have never used a miu miu product before. L’Eau Bleue is suppose to have hints of Lily of the valley and honeysuckle.

Overall I really liked this month’s box and bag. What do you think?

Birthday Sephora Haul

Of course since my birthday just passed I needed to head to sephora for my yearly birthday. I decided to step outside of my comfort zone and buy two new brands I’ve never tried. Bite and Milk.

The Haul

  • Tarte scrub Clean Set
  • Milk Headliner set
  • Bite The perfect pair Amuse Bouche Lipstick
  • Sephora Collection Beauty on the Fly Bag
  • (Birthday Gift) Tart Creamy Matte Lip Paint

Not a huge haul but enough to wear I’ll be trying new things out for a while!

March Play! by Sephora unboxing

I was finally able to sign up for Play! by Sephora and I am so excited. It’s been a while since I’ve gotten a beauty subscription, mostly due to limited funds, but am I slowly working back up again.

What’s in the box!?

This month’s theme is Get in the Glow, which focuses on finding a natural shimmer and glow to your normally dull complexion. Considering we are starting to transition from winter to spring I really like the theme to this box. I really love the small poster they include in the box that explains what products you got, why they included it, and how to apply it. It’s very easy to read, I don’t have to get my glasses or squint to read it.

I really love the bag that’s included with the box, but I have always had a thing for bags in beauty boxes.

Glamglow Glowstarter Mega Illuminating Moisturizer. This is suppose to help your complexion while giving you skin a bit of shine to take the dullness away. I really like the idea of this and hopes it works well. I’ve never used Glamglow before but I’ve seen them everywhere and I’ve been wanting to try one of their products for a while. Excited I get to finally try one of their products.

Benefit Cosmetics Watt’s up! Cream-to-Powder highlighter I’ve used this before as I got it a long time ago in a Birchbox box. I ended up losing it and I was so sad since I used it almost everytime I wore make up. I love this stuff so the fact that I got another sample of it is great!

Josie Maran Surreal Skin Argan Finishing Balm while it reads that you can use it as a primer or for a ‘finishing touch’ I think I want to use it as a finisher. I’ve never used anything like that before so I am super excited to try it out and see how it works. Apparently it’s a cream that you can tap onto your face with your fingers or a sponge. Kinda weird but I dig it.

Bobbi Brown Long Wear Cream Shadow stick in Golden Pink While pink is in the color name it looks more gold than anything. I didn’t do a swatch of it because I want to try it out and see how it looks at a later time and maybe review it. While I’ve used a couple of Bobbi Brown products before I’ve never used a shadow so I am super interested in it.

Living Proof Full Dry Volume Blast I am constantly having flat hair problems. If I curl my hair it falls flat in about an hour, if I brush my hair it goes limper than a naked man in the arctic, it’s not fair. I am so glad that Sephora included this in their box, the one thing I am worried about however is the that the product is oil-based so I hope it does not turn my hair in a oily mess.

Chloe Fleur de Parfum honestly I am not so happy about this product, but that does not mean I won’t try it out. I tend to have allergy problems to floral scented perfumes and this is supposed to be floral but it also has top notes of Lemon essence so I am hoping it’s not too overbearing

Overall I am happy with this months box. What do you think of the products in Play! by Sephora march box? Have you used any of them?

Sephora Birthday Haul

Sephora Haul

So after my trip, I had a whole day I requested off from work just for myself and I had a gift card from Sephora. So I channeled my inner Tom Haverford and Donna Meagle and decided to Treat myself.

Walking into Sephora I didn’t really have a product that I needed in mind, so while I perused the store (and being asked a hundred times if I needed help, I must have looked lost) I came across my first Item.

Fresh Lip treatment

I’m having a huge problem with Dried lips lately and it seems like nothing is working, so a friend recommended this. I immediately snatched this up. The next product I debated a bit over

2016-04-04 16.55.18

I have so many Palettes right now! however a girl could never have enough right? Definitely going to review and show off a couple of swatches for this treat! After I picked this up I remembered I needed a new lash curler.

sephora lash curler

This is a bit on the pricey side to be honest but I trust sephora not to cut my lashes off.

The Make up eraser was a must try! I’ve heard so many things I had to pick it up when I saw it while standing in line.

2016-04-04 16.55.13

Last but not least was my Birthday pick, I’ve never tried any of Marc Jacobs Make up so I picked this baby up!

I know I spent more than was on my gift card, but it was my birthday, It’s my responsibility to make myself happy and as long as I am not hurting anyone right?

Mini Sephora B-Day Haul

Sephora Haul

So The Venetian in Vegas has a Sephora right on the strip so when I passed by you know I had to walk in. This sephora was big and unfortunately I did not take pictures of the store itself I did purchase a couple of products. I’ve been looking for a nice liquid liner to use and I loved my felt tip Kat Von D Tattoo liner, but I was thinking of repurchasing it, but changed my mind and decided to buy something else.

Kat Von D Autograph Eyeliner in Black Metal Love.
Anastasia Beverly Hill Brow Bar in chocolate
Birthday Bonus: 
NARS 2 mini lip pencils  Velvet Matte Lip in Cruella and Satin Lip in Rikugien
