Its torture trying to pick just one!Oh and then I slipped into sephora last night and grabbed the last box of old style guerlain meteorites! Im so excited to try them :smileyhappy:

5 days into the new year, and I've already bought a few things. There goes my new year's resolution...

I got the BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector in Moonstone, BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector Perfector Pressed in Rose Gold (I'm such a sucker for LE products!), Anastasia Brow Wiz in Soft Brow, First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Pads, & NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer in Alaska. Other than the tinted moisturizer, everything was a first-time buy for me. I'm super stoked to try the Becca Skin Perfectors!

I bought the Skin Volume 2 set by Sephora, but be careful when you get it and make sure you have everything in it. I was missing a mask in it and they said I had to either return it in store or send the whole thing back in the mail to get the kit replaced (they didn't offer to send me just the missing item). I thought it was a hassle and didn't bother. I don't have a car, so I like the convenience of ordering online, but shipping the entire thing back? oh noz..lol but I love the kit nonetheless.

uh oh & thanks for the heads up I bought the skin volume sets 1, 2, & the essential oils today I hope they don't mess anything up because I will have to bus 45 minutes over to the nearest sephora to make up fix it otherwise!

I posted this in Joyous January Hauls but figured, why not here, too? 

I had such a long list of things to try out in-store that I made an Excel spreadsheet! Call me crazy... :smileyvery-happy:

Anyway, here's what I ended up walking away with. For now. :smileywink:

 

  • MJB Highliner Gel Crayon in Blacquer (a lovely true black, and I'm so glad it's retractable!)
  • YSL Rouge Volupté Lipstick in Rose Caresse and Rose Opera (my YSL collection is slowly growing :smileyhappy:)
  • Tarte EmphasEYES Waterproof Clay Liner in Black (I want to compare this to the Buxom one)
  • ABH Brow Wiz in Ebony (repurchase, I swear by this and the Powder Duo)
  • Tarte LipSurgence Lip Luster in Achiote (finally, a coral that suits me!)
  • UD 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil in Turn On (pairs beautifully with YSL Rose Caresse above, and I like the formula better than UD's Revolution lipsticks, so I purchased Rose Caresse instead of the Turn On lipstick!)
  • UD Grindhouse (because my drugstore sharpeners always break, and I figured, why not)


Here's a photo! Sorry not everything is boxed, I used a few things already :smileyhappy:

Viviene - The Brow Pen is not the same thing as the Brow Wiz.  It's like a skinny felt-tipped pen.  http://www.sephora.com/brow-pen-long-wearing-brow-tint-P219410?skuId=1103647  But I think you've answered my question anyway!  :smileyhappy:

Ooh, those Sephora Favorites sets are calling to me, especially the Skin Bender one.  Trying to decide if they're worth it...

that was the first one I picked and then I just lost control and ordered the second one as well as the essential oil kits and a few more oopsies! :smileyhappy: I just ordered them a couple of hours ago if i knew more I would let you know but i don't think I have tried anything in any of the skincare kits I ordered.

Vivienne23 - Have you used the Anastasia Brow Pen?  I'm curious how the Dipbrow compares to the Brow Pen, which is what I'm currently using.

Is the brow pen similar to brow whiz (or is it the same?). I used to use brow whiz with browgel. Dip brow is very pigmented. Brow whiz looks softer imo. What I like about dipbrow is that it does not budge and I'm sure it is more cost efficient because a little product goes a long way.

Gingerblack - Is that one of the new Bite Beauty colors?  Which color did you get?  I'd like to know just how bright (neon?) the color is.  Thanks!

 I have that tarte brush... I loooove it. It's so soft I just want to cuddle with it :smileyhappy: It's really only good for blending though, and I use it sometimes for powder foundation because it feels so nice

Have you tried it for liquid foundation?

Annypoo, that's what this brush is made for :smileyhappy: I use it every day with my liquid foundation and it works its magic. I wouldn't use any other brush!
