Happy Monday, friends!
So, this weekend I participated in the Sephora Rouge sale. If you are level Rouge, you basically get first dibs on everything in the store being on sale! Rouge members get to take a full 20% off the entire store. That’s basically a steal in my mind, considering nothing I like ever goes on sale! Lol! If you are like me, you probably used the heck out of that 20% off! You can use it once a day until the sale is over. Does this make me crazy?? Don’t answer that! All of you Insider and VIB babes also get to take part in the 15% off! Today is the final day, so I hope you beauties racked up on all of your favorite goodies!
I decided to try a couple of new products, as well as replenish some of my holy grails! This last time in the store, I stuck to grabbing mostly makeup products, because lately, I’ve been on this skin care kick, trying to prepare myself for the hot months that are about to be upon us.
I will start by talking about the new products that I bought first! I decided to grab a new primer and a couple new foundations, as I feel like the one that I have been using is a bit to heavy for summer. (The CC full coverage cream by IT Cosmetics)
The primer I bought is the Korres Greek Yogurt Smoothie Primer. The first thing I noticed upon applying it, was how yummy it smells! It literally smells like a fruit smoothie. I loveee! It’s very soft on the skin and very hydrating, so it’s perfect for all of you dry skin girls, that are like me! I love this primer!
Next up, foundation! I bought two different ones. The first one is by Nars. It’s the All day Luminous Weightless Foundation. A little goes a long way with this product, as it’s a tad bit on the thinner consistency, but easily spreadable! I really love this foundation, I feel like it’s not heavy at all and definitely will give you a more luminous and bright look. Perfect for summer, if you ask me! I use my beauty blender to apply. Second up! I bought the Hourglass Seamless Finish Liquid Foundation. I was REALLY excited to try this, as I have heard sooo many wonderful things about it. I put it on today, and honestly, I am a tad bit disappointed… For the most part, after an hour of wear, it started to crack around my eye area and also around my mouth. I don’t usually have this issue with other foundations. It’s a total bummer. I am going to give this one a second chance and do another review on it a later on, so stay tuned!
Next up on the newbie purchase list! I got the Milk Makeup Lip and cheek tint in the color “perk”. I am sooo used to using powder blushes and actually never ventured out of my comfort zone to try a cream blush. I am so very glad that I finally did, because this one is incredible! I use my fingers to apply and I delicately pat it across my cheek bones. It’s the perfect pink tint for summer! You can wear it alone for a little color, or even on top of your other makeup. I do not recommend using this product directly to the skin if wearing foundation, as it will rub your foundation off and make it look all kinds of crazy! Use your fingers!
Ok!! So, now I will share with you guys all of the things that I repurchased, that I am currently obsessed with and probably never will stop using.
The Nars concealer is EVERYTHING and more! I’ve been using this for years now! I’m honestly scared to try anything else. This is the only concealer that DOES NOT crease like crazy under my eyes. It’s magic! A little goes a very long way! I use a beauty blender to blend it. I also re purchased my setting powder to set my under eyes. I always buy Laura Mercier’s Translucent Setting Powder. It doesn’t look cakey, you don’t need a lot and it seriously lasts all day long! The nars concealer and LM setting powder, were made for each other! Oh, I also re purchased my usual makeup setting spray. It is the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting spray! It’s a holy grail, enough said!
Lastly!!! I am becoming more and more obsessed with Drunk Elephant’s entire skin care line! I don’t even second guess myself when buying from their line! You guys, it’s seriously AMAZING! I have been using a few things from their line, and I just can’t get enough! One of my fave products, is the C- Firma Day Serum. I have major issues with C serums, as they usually dry me out or majorly irritate my skin. This one is perfection! It can be a little drying if trying for the first time, so make sure you are moisturizing very well after application. I recommend buying their B-Hyrda Intensive Hydration serum and using that alongside the C-Firma Day Serum. Another match made in heaven! Your skin will be protected from yucky pollutants and will be firmer and brighter looking!
This is everything I purchased in the sale! I hate today is the last day! It’s seriously the best thing ever! I hope everyone got to take part. I would love to know what goodies you guys got during the sale and what you are currently obsessed with! Leave me so feedback below or reach out to me on Instagram! 🙂
That’s all for now, babes!
