Sephora Favorites Collection!

Sephora recently released a few of their holiday gift sets and a lot of Sephora Favourites packages are already out as well as some other great brands I am absolutely dying to try. We all know I am a sucker for value sets and if theres a time to get them, its between now and Christmas. Check out some of the products I have my sights on!

Sephora Favourites Beauty Unmasked
s1636901-main-hero-300-1
Price: $37.00
Consists of:
– 1.7 oz Origins Clear Improvement™ Active Charcoal Mask To Clear Pores
– 1 oz Boscia Luminizing Black Mask
– 0.5 oz Peter Thomas Roth Cucumber Gel Mask
– 0.5 oz Glamglow Thirstymud™ Hydrating Treatment

Already love the Origins mask and have been wanting to try both the Glamglow and Boscia masks so this seems worth it to me!

OR

Gift Sexy — Glamglow
s1651934-main-hero-300
Price: $76
Consists of:
-1.7 oz THIRSTYMUD™ Hydrating Treatment
– 0.5 oz SUPERMUD™ Clearing Treatment
– 0.5 oz YOUTHMUD™ Tinglexfoliate Treatment

I have been eyeing Glamglow products foreeeeever, since you hear anyone that can afford them rave and rave about their products. I’ve just always felt $76 was way too much for a mask….so if there is a deal to try all three I may have to pounce on this chance!

Sephora Favourites Superstars

s1647197-main-hero-300
Price: $90
Consists of:
– 0.003 oz Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz in Dark Brown
– 0.25 oz Benefit Cosmetics POREfessional
– 0.05 oz Benefit Cosmetics They’re Real Mascara In Jet Black
– 1.7 oz Bumble And Bumble Surf Spray
– 0.34 oz Chloè by Chloè Rollerball
– 0.4 oz Formula X Nail Color in Ignite
– 0.08 oz Fresh Sugar Rosè Tinted Lip Treatment
– 0.5 oz Josie Maran 100% Pure Argan Oil
– 0.16 oz Nars Cosmetics Blush in Orgasm
– 1 oz Smashbox Cosmetics Smashbox Camera Ready BB Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 35 in Light
– 0.016 oz Stila Cosmetics Stay All Day® Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner In Intense Black
– 0.05 oz Urban Decay Eye shadow in Sin

I am on the fence for this value set. There are some things I’ve definitely been wanting to try, some I already have, and others I have no desire or already know won’t go with my colouring….but I guess that is the beauty of this type of value pack. Whether I am sure or not right now, all I know is I keep finding myself back at the site staring at this so we will have to see!

Ambient Lighting Blush Palette
s1643485-main-hero-300
Price: $67
Contains:
-0.11 oz Cheek shades in Luminous Flush (champagne rose)
-0.11 oz Incandescent Electra (cool peach)
-0.11 oz Mood Exposure (soft plum)

Are you serious?! Just recently I bought the Ambient Lighting highlighting palette and as I was contemplating I said “I really wish it was a blush palette.” Turns out I love my other palette so it worked out for the better, but I am most certainly going to have to get my hands on this!

Naked Basics 2
s1637719-main-hero-300
Price: $35
Consists of:
-0.05 oz in Skimp (pale nude satin)
-0.05 oz Stark (nude-pink matte)
-0.05 oz Frisk (warm gray matte)
-0.05 oz Cover (muted red-brown matte)
-0.05 oz Primal (muted brown matte)
-0.05 oz Undone (deep, smoky brown matte)

I am borderline obsessed with my Naked Basics, easily my favourite palette. Easy for travel, so versatile and so buttery. So I have been back and forth on getting the 2nd version since they seem so similar…but they AREN’T similar, and why not get something you know you are absolutely going to love!

I also definitely would have gone for the Draw the Line and the Lash Stash as well but…I recently bought those! haha

So those are what is on my wish list (so far!) Looking to be a good Christmas! haha What is on your wish list from Sephora’s value sets collection?

“August” Favourites!

So I realized I’m pretty late on the whole August favourites type post, so I was originally planning on skipping it…but then I thought, reading everyone else’s favourites are the posts I most look forward to, and it’s my blog so…..heck, why not?!

August was my “this is the last of summer so live it up” month, and my favourites revolved around that.

I tried to wear bright colours (loving on the mint and coral) and show off my tan as much as possible. Heading out of town for a wedding, I got these gorgeous bangle bracelets ON SALE from Aldo Accessories, and I have gotten compliments on them every time I wear them. I am just obsessing over coral, mint and gold right now so any outfits I can wear this with you know that I am!

Tarte’s Lights, Cameras, Lashes Mascara
Next, I picked up the Lash Stash pack last month from Sephora (most amazing deal by the way) and have been using Tarte’s Lights, Camera, Lashes…and am obsessed! I have been asked twice if I am wearing false eyelashes. I love how much volume it is giving my lashes, but not clumpy or spidery like Too Faced’s Better Than Sex can sometimes do. Still in love with my Too Faced mascara, but am loving Tarte’s for work.

Revlon Nail Polish — “Teak Rose”
I’ve mentioned before I am a sucker for Revlon nail polish. I just think it has amazing colour payoff, dries fairly quickly and doesn’t chip, all for a great price. I recently picked up Teak Rose and I am IN LOVE. It is a fairly warmed toned dusty rose, that is an absolutely gorgeous colour without being too dramatic. I have so many outfits that go with this polish and I know it looks delicate and pretty and chic!

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette
I actually almost returned this in the first week I got it…if I lived near a Sephora, I would have. I just did not think this was doing anything for me, and after experiencing Laura Mercier’s highlighter, I wasn’t sold — especially with a price tag like this palette has. But I continued to wear it, and it continued to grow on me….and now if I forget to put it on in the morning, I really notice that glow from within look is missing. It just gives the skin an overall beautiful glowy look — thats totally natural looking. My favourite of the palette is by far the middle shade, Incandescent.

Smashbox Eyeliner
With recently picking up Sephora’s Draw the Line eyeliner value set, I figured I should probably use up other liners I have first (I am a liner hoarder, I will admit) so I have only begun to use Smashbox’s black crayon eyeliner…and I love it! Great colour pay off, and I use it on the waterline and it sticks all day. I often veer away from wearing crayon liner at work for fear of panda eyes, but this stuff stays put!

Sephora Haul!

Four very wonderful S’s have made my long weekend — Sunshine, Swimming, Sangria aaaand Sephora! After a beautiful cottage weekend away, I arrived home today to another beautiful sight, my Sephora order.

I was super excited about this order, anxiously waiting every single day since I ordered it for it to come.

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette
I have been eyeing the Hourglass palette since it came out, so I decided to just bite the money-bullet and get it. I’m a bit annoyed because I heard others received the Hourglass primer with it, which I was excited to try, but oh well. Will be doing a review soon!

Lash Stash To Go Set
Unknown-8
Not even gonna lie, the whole reason I HAD to put an order in (pretty sure I am headed to a Sephora next weekend ha!) was because I was worried this may not still be there and I absolutely had to have it. What an amazing deal. Will do a review for sure soon!

Origins Check and Balances Face Wash
Unknown-9
My skin has made it’s way more to the combo side as of late, and after loving another Origins product I decided to test this baby out. After trying once, I think this is headed towards a positive review, fingers crossed!

Sephora Look Smart Travel Eye Brush Set
s1579796-main-hero
This was smaller than I anticipated, but I am really excited to try this out.

Sephora (Make Up For Ever) Birthday Set
Unknown-10
Actually was pretty shocked over how much I love this lipstick. It is a great colour, and I just think it is the cutest tiniest lipstick!
