February 2016 Sephora Haul

February 2016 Sephora Haul

Earlier this month, I had a little shopping spree at Sephora–a Valentine’s Day treat for myself.

List of products purchased:

I have yet to try all of the products, but right now I’m loving the Touche Éclat Neutralizer. I definitely want the other colors, as well as the Touche Éclat Strobing Light Highlighter.

Have you tried any of these items? Would you like me to review any of them?

September 2015 Beauty Favorites

September 2015 Favorites

  1. Herbal Essences Naked Dry Shampoo — This is always such a lifesaver, but I was particularly thankful for it in September while our water heater was down. Herbal Essences Naked is not my favorite dry shampoo on the market, but it’s the one that I keep going back to because it’s affordable and it works. It smells pretty good, too.
  2. Revlon Colorstay Moisture Stain, shown in New York Scene — Revlon’s new lip stains have quickly become my favorite drugstore beauty buy. They are moisturizing, long lasting, and very pigmented. I have about four shades, but this classic red is definitely my go-to.
  3. Vaseline Lip Therapy Rosy Lips — I usually don’t crack open this little jar until it gets super cold and windy, which is silly because my lips are always chapped, but this year I decided to start early. I’ve been using this nightly as the last step of my skin care routine, and I wake up with soft and smooth lips in the morning.
  4. MAC Viva Glam Miley Cyrus 2 — This lipstick and lipglass are so fun and vibrant. They look amazing whether you wear them together or separately. The bright lipstick is perfect for a bold look, and the lipglass works well with so many lipsticks. I also like to wear the lipglass alone for a subtle glossy look.
  5. Nature Republic by Flower Auto Eyebrow #3 — I’ve been paying more attention to my brows recently, and this pencil works great. It is very easy to work with, and there’s also a grooming brush on the other end.
  6. The Face Shop Lovely me:ex Touch My Lip Liner, shown in #2 Dust Rose — I love this collection of lip liners from The Face Shop. They have fantastic staying power and create the perfect base. This product also has a lip brush at the end so that you can define lines and blend flawlessly.
  7. Skinfood Nail Vita in BR613 Mocha Gold — This was a birthday gift that I received last year and I’m still a big fan of it. The copper gold color is perfect for fall.
  8. Julep Nail Color in DeAnn — If you’ve been following my Spa Sundays series, you already know that I’m a Julep Maven (Maven = monthly subscriber, basically). I’m a huge fan of the brand’s polishes in general, but this berry crème is my current fall favorite.
  9. Bite Beauty Matte Crème Lipstick in Barberry — I saw this limited edition lipstick at Sephora and grabbed it immediately. I consider it the perfect berry lipstick and my go-to for this season.
  10. Make Up For Ever Smoky Extravagant Mascara — My new thing is to curl my lashes and wear mascara every day. I used to curl my lashes daily, but that slowly went downhill and now I don’t even know where my favorite eyelash curler is… Anyway, this is one of the best mascaras I’ve tried to-date, and I definitely plan to purchase the full-sized version once I run out.

Well, that’s all for September! If you’d like me to do a detailed review for any of the products featured above, let me know in the comments.
