Sometimes I Stalk Sephulta…..

So sometimes on my work breaks I stalk the “New!” sections at Sephora and Ulta. And sometimes I GASP out loud because I see something spectacular…

NEW Estee Lauder Pure Color Love lipstick in Moon Rock (foil metallic lipstick)

UM, EXCUSE ME but what is this glorious new lipstick called Moon Rock that’s described as a “foil”?!

It appears Ulta has a whole LINE, as in THIRTY, new Estee Lauder lipsticks just for their store. This includes the foil beauty Moon Rock as seen above as well as others that catch my eye like this other foil color…

NEW Estee Lauder Pure Color Love lipstick in Pocket Venus (foil metallic lipstick)

 

There seems to be four finishes: crΓ©me, matte, pearl, and foil. With thirty colors!!!! As per the Ulta website, they are online starting Valentines Day and in store March 12. My local Ulta doesn’t carry Estee in store (grrrrrr…) but DAAANG I cannot wait for the first swatches and reviews start pouring in! @ my girlΒ Temptalia PLEASE do me a solid and review these πŸ˜‰

 

What new things have sparked your interested lately?

Monday blues

SoΒ my laptop has had a terrible hard drive failure today which sadly means I’ve lost a bunch of photos I was getting ready to post for this week’s lipstick round-up as well as some EOTDs. WordPress on mobile isn’t the best experience so I’ll be taking a short break as my laptop is being repaired.

I wentΒ to Ulta on my way back from dropping my laptop off for repairs (therapy shopping, am I right?). I totally fell in love with the new UD liquid vice lipsticks. I only purchased Backtalk, since I love that one in the vice cream formula. I’ve been wearing it for the last four hours and so far so good!

Just wanted to let you know it’s going to be a bit quiet for me this weekend. An old friend of mine (whom I haven’t seen in almost 2 years!) is staying with me for the next couple of days and we’re going to be doing loads of fun things in the city πŸ™‚ I’ll be back and blogging most likely Monday.
Have a great weekend! I leave you with this inspirational quote from the amazing Lauren Bacall. We all have the potential to be awesome πŸ™‚

omg Star Wars makeup!

Guess what guys? I have a secret identity and it’s that I’m aΒ giant nerd. So when I saw CoverGirl’s photos of their new Star Wars line I may or may not have shrieked. I collect a lot of the geeky indie brand products, but WOW! For a major companyΒ to do geek makeup really makes me happy πŸ™‚

These promo pics are EPIC.

HAPPY FRIDAY HAUL! Aka I went nuts when I saw *this* on sale…!

I am SO THANKFUL that it’s Friday! This has been the longest week ever. August has been slow and hot and gross so I’m glad the first seven days are over πŸ™‚

I popped into Sephora to return an item (post on that later) and on my way out I looked at the Sephora that’s in JCPenneys just to check out the differences in items they carry (for example, my regular Sephora was sold out of most of the new Kat Von D shades but the one in JCP had them all still). And lo and behold, the entire stock of Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics was on a big clearance! I’ve been wanting to try the brand forΒ years now but never really took the plunge. So of course, feeling good this Friday, I bought a bunch!

I got the OCC Tinted Moisturizer in R1 (I plan on mixing this with another foundation that’s too yellow for me), the Creme Colour Concentrate in Miriam (an awesome muted rose plum), Lip Tars in Manhunter (crazy sparkly gold red) and Roleplay (metallic red), and a Cosmetic Colour Pencil in Feathered (bright white, plan on using this on my bottom waterline). Everything was 50% off πŸ™‚

I’m EXCITED to play around with these! I haven’t ever used OCC but I’ve heard great things.

Oh, and by the way guys, there’s a lot of cool things in the Sephora sale section right now. Like the Kat Von D Chrysalis palette!!!

Screen Shot 2015-08-07 at 4.01.33 PMI got in-person confirmation today that this palette is being DISCONTINUED. Which really makes me itchy to grab one… I don’t really use palettes that often and I tend to build my own, but daaaang this is tempting.

Have an awesome weekend~!

til later lovelies,

Urban Decay Matte Revolution ~ After Dark ~ Dupe Alert!!

But lo and behold~ I already had something verrrry similar in my stash!

KALE?

KALE?

I am strangely super curious about this new nail trend where nail polish is INFUSED with kale! Like, don’t get me wrong, I love me some kale as a food πŸ˜‰ … just not so sure how it would work as a ‘nail antioxidant’.

Has anyone heard of these? Have you tried them? If you have, leave a comment! I’m so curious πŸ˜€

til later, lovelies!
