I made a small little purchase from Sephora a couple of weeks ago. Personally, online shopping is one of my greatest weaknesses and I’ve put myself on a true makeup spending ban for hopefully the rest of the year. I just realized that I don’t need anything more until I can use some of my stash up! But nevertheless, I still have a few items to haul and talk about!
This first item has already been talked about in a separate post here. I love picking up these little sets to try out some products and I have really enjoyed getting some use out of these items this summer! The Hourglass Bronzer is one my favorites from the bag for a sunkissed glow! Also, the Tarte self-tanner has been purchased in a full-size because I really enjoyed it!
Benefit’s Galifornia blush really sparked my eye, so I had to pick it up! I love blush and it’s something that I wear every single time I wear makeup. Although I’m not wearing makeup a lot this summer, it really is the perfect blush for the summer time. It’s a great pinky-coral color with a slight amount of shimmer. I’m disappointed that the gold on the top of the blush really is just a spray over and disappears within one swatch of the product. There is still shimmer left in the product, and I’m really not a fan of shimmery blushes so it did work out for me in the end.
I don’t really like the brush it comes with, but maybe for travel I could use it. I’m super impressed with this blush and excited to wear it this weekend when I go to a wedding! Also, the packaging is literally to die for, so it’s more worth the splurge for such beauty in my collection!
The best thing that comes with shopping from Sephora online is getting to pick out some free samples! I love trying out new products so I got the free gift and a few sample packets to try out.
The first thing is the First Aid Beauty Resurfacing Liquid. I haven’t used this product yet, but I love First Aid Beauty and I struggle with acne prone skin. I’m just not really sure how to use this product 100%, so I’ve been nervous to try it out. It’s also supposedly makes your skin a little more sensitive to sun exposure, and I work outside all summer so I think I’m going to wait till fall to give this product a go!
My sample packets were the Fresh Soy Face Cleanser. I have used this product before and really love it! It smells like cucumber and makes your skin feel really clean. Next is the Sunday Riley C.E.O C+E Antioxidant Protect & Repair Moisturizer. That is a super long name, and I’m really excited to try this out. It’s such a tiny sample and I will not buy the full-size of this product, but excited to try it out anyways. Lastly is the Alternia Haircare Caviar Anti-Aging Shampoo and Conditioner. I have used both of these products, and they were just fine. I won’t be purchasing the full-size.
