The less I try to spend money, the more I spend. Sigh.
I really didn’t need any new products, but I can never pass up the Sephora sale. I received my order last week and (most) of the products did not disappoint! Here’s a breakdown:
First Aid Beauty Caffeine Matcha Wake Up Wipes: I don’t know if it’s a placebo effect, but I am obsessed with these. I use them after the shower and they do a great job of freshening and waking up my skin before makeup. They make your skin tingle slightly which feels so good before 6:00 am! I actually look forward to using them! I will be buying more once I go through these.
Hourglass Girl Lip Stylo in Lover: The perfect red orange shade! The formula is super creamy and long-lasting. I can’t wait to buy more colors.
Hourglass Veil Primer: I did not want to like this because it’s so expensive, but of course I do! I just bought the travel size to try and I am obsessed.
Benefit Gimme Brow: Again, I bought the travel size of this to see how I’d like it, and I’m in love! I will be purchasing the full-size. It’s easy to use and effortlessly fills in my sparse brows.
Farsali Rose Gold Elixir: My skin has been so dry this year which is not normal for me. I have been applying a L’Oreal oil with my foundation to alleviate dry patches. It worked pretty well, but my makeup wouldn’t stay on as long. This elixir is expensive, but it helps with my dryness without being too oily, and it helps my foundation stay in place all day.
Sephora brand Airbrush Foundation: This was an impulse buy. I don’t like wearing foundation during the hot summer months because it feels heavy. I thought this would be a good, lighter alternative. I experimented with it a bit but I think I’ll like it for special occasion wear. It’s a little too messy for every day.
Sephora Brand Favorites Give me Some Nude Lip: I wanted to love this but the colors are not at all right for me. I thought the shades were pink nudes… but I was wrong. The dark brown lipsticks do NOT work with my light skin tone. I returned this, unfortunately.
