Mini Sephora Haul~ Kat Von D Bachelorette, Eyelashes, Hourglass VIB Promo Gift

Happy Monday! I cannot believe it’s almost September!!! It’s kind of scary how fast 2015 is flying by. But September means it’s almost October which means it’s almost time for my favorite holiday πŸ™‚

Today I have a little mini haul from Sephora! I saw that they were doing a VIB/Rouge promo where you get a little sampler of Hourglass minis with purchase so I kind of impulse bought some things so I could get the promo πŸ™‚ #noregrets

Red lipstick heartbreak – aka, Estee Lauder’s gorgeous lipstick and why I returned it

Happy Sunday everyone! Time for a long story… I’ve been craving one of the Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Sculpting lipsticks since I first saw them on Temptalia. Half the colors have been in my wish list for ages and after my blegh week last week I picked one up on a whim, aiming for a safe choice. I bought Vengeful Red, described on Sephora as a “bright red berry”. Which sounds amazing, right? Continue reading

e.l.f cosmetics haul! ~ The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

It’s been literally years since I’ve bought any e.l.f. products. I remember back in the day when their website was a clunker and they only had the $1 essentials line! The last time I bought from them I think was a Black Friday sale and a lot of their products seemed hit & miss for me. I hadn’t had a hankering for more e.l.f. stuff but since I’m always seeing more and more products added to their display at Target, that urge to try new products popped up again! Last week they were having a free shipping, no minimum so I took advantage and got a few things πŸ™‚

a tiny tiny handful of the reds I own

If you’re a lot like me, then you have more red lipsticks than you could ever need in a lifetime! I can’t help it; I love red lipsticks. How they look, how they feel…. its incomparable to other colors for me πŸ™‚
Anyways, when you own as many as I do, you start to realize how many similar colors you have! Last week I *almost* bought Urban Decay 69 during the sale but then I realized OOPS! I already have a few that look almost alike! Lets take a look at some of my reds…

lipstick swatchfest!

Its absolutely still fall/winter in my book (if there’s still snow outside, its still winter!) so of course I’m going to continue wearing all my dark reds and berry lipsticks πŸ™‚ I actually mourn when its springtime despite how much I hate ice, because I really really love my dark lippies and they look a little bit odd in the bright hot spring/summer sun. Oh well!

Lots of images in this post, so make sure you hit the read more!
