Sephora & Dior Haul with Swatches
I did a little retail therapy shopping in the course of three months while I was super sick. I have been absolutely loving all things spring that have been released as of late.
I am just adoring this Dior Addict Lipgloss in the color 772 what I would describe as a sheer fuchsia is the perfect amount of punch to the lips for this coming valentines day! There is no glitter in this gloss and I do not find it to be overly sticky in any way. These glosses are some of my all time favorites.
Tarte Be MATTEnificent Palatte At just $43 this Palette is so incredible! I love that it contains a blush and two eyeliners along with 6 limited edition eyeshadow colors in one sleek palette that is super easy to travel with. I thought when I purchased my Naked2 Palette that I would use that for basically every trip I went on…but it’s just not so. the length of it makes it hard for me to put it in any makeup bag and I wouldn’t want to risk cracking any of the colors. This one is the PERFECT size still giving you loads of options without compromising quality of product!! So Far I just love love all the shades my favorite being the bottom middle color. The real bonus for me is being able to try out a tarte blush and seeing what all the fuss is about!
Diorshow New Look Mascara is a
long time favorite of mine. I simply have the smallest eyes ever and this really lengthens my lashes and is great for layering mascara which is one of my favorite makeup tricks! It makes it incredibly easy to apply mascara without smudging it all over your face. I would also say this doubles as a bottom lash mascara because the applicator is so small. Basically eliminating that $12 cost of the Clinique Bottom Lash that I used to purchase regularly.
Loreal Lash Out Butterfly Mascara is an excellent mascara to wear all on it’s own! So effortless and gives me the exact look I want without having to fuss over it to much. The shape of this wand is what makes it really stand out from all the rest. The formulation doesn’t flake off on me and comes out a nice black color.
Dior Nail Polish in Porcelaine #204 I can’t find a link to online unfortunately. I also have shellac on my nails at present so have added a photo from pointlesscafe.com of the Dior Color and the bottom photo is mine of Scotch Naturals Caleigh.. Seriously looks so similar to Scotch Naturals Caleigh!
Capture Totale Haute Nutrition (notice how sephora has a whole face oil section on the site now) I remember the days when women were so reluctant to put any sorta oil on their face and now it’s the total opposite. I have had a rough go this winter with my skin and have had dry chapped cheeks that were incredibly irritated. I used a few drops of this all over my skin at first. It is incredibly rich and you can definitely feel the moisture. It’s almost too rich for certain spots on my face I.E. my forehead. But it really did the trick on clearing up the dry spots on my cheeks. I did use this serum in conjunction with my moisturizer as at the time my moisturizer just wasn’t cutting it. I haven’t used this long enough to give my full thoughts on it, but I am liking it thus far.
I basically have already said my piece on this in my haul video but basically I think the color payoff is crap. It’s great and cute for those who are collectors…but that really is just about it.
Elizabeth and James Nirvana White I have linked the Perfume description HERE. Overall I really do just love this scent, it is fresh and you can totally pick up the notes of peony which is why I initially gave it a go in the first place. I personally adore the packaging and the spritz applicator myself, and after doing a bit of reading I discovered this was to be more of an oil perfume in order to melt into the skin. I really don’t find that this scent lasts a long time. Within a few short hours I can only smell the tiniest twinge of a scent. I do LOVVVEEE the journey it take you on though. You can really smell the progression of the smell changing and adapting to your skin which makes this scent so much fun. I love layering it as well!
I usually stay away from all things ROSE but I could NOT resist this bottle! I love love the print. It is so encaptivating. I took full advantage of my Sephora VIB rewards points in order to obtain this scarf that is 100% silk! Can’t wait to mist it and throw it on a summery tote bag of sorts! I love how unique the smell of this bottle and have truly grown to love it!
