Every Friday I need to treat myself. Ice cream, new clothes, movies with friends, but this Friday I needed some beauty therapy. Work was pretty hmm... CRAZY this week! I looked like a complete wreck from the stress and work load. I definitely needed some new beauty essential items.
HAND CREAM CONFESSION:
I am a complete sucker for the Sephora items that are beuty on the go! I always grab stuff from those lil baskets. It seems like a good way to try things at a cheaper price and sample size instead of investing in a $90 dollar item you hate.
I LOVE handcreams! I have no idea where this love came from but it is definetly there. I carry with me in my purse, at any time 3-6 differnet types of hand creams and am always on the search for a new one.
I have heard great things about this one from Loccitane. I just love the old fashioned packaging! In Sephora I try all the lotions and hand creams first, that way when I finish walking through the store and browsing I can see if there is any diff in my skin.
This cream made my skin feel so elastic! super smooth and has a plea sent subtle scent. Seems like a keeper!
I literally just ordered new foundation last night via SaSa but I had tried this on the store and loved the coverage~after work I could tell my skin did not look good. My conccealer and BB cream from the morning was pretty blotchy by now.
The shades of these match my skin perfectly ( had to ask 3 sales ladies to confirm ) but I like the finish. The little concealer is good for under eye because it does not exphasize my fine lines.
Foundation in shade #120 and the concealer is in #8.
Ahh Benefit's Coralista! I have wanted this for months. At first you can see the color is similar to NARS DT. I actually walked over to the NARS section to make sure I was not buying the same blush 2x. Coralista definitely has more peach tiny and has far finer shimmers. Great for summer.
FIXING IN THE SKIN!
I have been breaking out like MAD latley and it sucks! Last night I bought the Clinque Acne Solutions from SaSa also. It can be easily found here, but I needed it for the free shipping ^^. Today I also bought the spot treatment cream (left) and the clarifying acne toner (right)
Guess I am becoming a Clinique girl?
**EDIT** the toner is going back to the store THIS weekend! ( where is my receipt!?) I just tried it. OMG! it was like I suddenly had 1000 salt wounds on my face. I literally swiped once and *POW*- *STINGING*
I generally don't use too many American skin care products because they tend to be too harsh, I guess Clinique is no different =( I hope the soap is more gentle!
I do not have sensitive skin, but some American brand products are just too harsh for me...
Some Freebies that came with my Sephora purchase. I have always wanted like bliss body lotion, I try it every time I visit the store to sample them but the smell just turns me off. To me they dont have very pretty scents. This little one seems unscented so I'm glad to try this out.
Also isn't it cute? This is the smallest Bliss tube I have ever seen.
A LORAC bronzer, I am more into blushes, I may give this item away.
Last is some OPI I had gotten last week. The back color being "Cozu melted in the sun" and in the front is "Cosmo Not tonight honey!"
Where do they get these names??
There were definitely more stuff in my basket!! but I had to put some items back =\ I am going to post them on my wish list because I know if I don't I will definitely forget.
Hope you enjoyed the haul! Have a great weekend!
