New: Sephora

Hi everyone-

This post is way overdue. I partook in a little Black Friday shopping. Granted, it was online, but I scored some great products. It had been a while since I'd purchased anything from Sephora (blame moving, then not working, blah blah blah), so I was thrilled when mom decided to treat me.

For a while, I'd been wanting to try a new shade of NARS lip gloss in Dolce Vita. I have Orgasm & although it's a "universal color", it just didn't look right on me. Dolce Vita is more a dusty rose shade as opposed to peach, which looks a lot better with my skintone. I am in love with this lip color & can't wait to purchase the blush, lipstick & matte lip pencil when it's back in stock.

I was also on the hunt for a good lip moisturizer since the weather was just getting cold. I've tried & loved Rosebud Salve, but wanted to try something new. In comes FAB Ultra Repair Lip Therapy. This product is great to wear at night or under lip color. I wear mine mostly at night since I find it to be too thick during the day. I honestly can't wait to try more from First Aid Beauty.

I had heard amazing things about Josie Maran's product line infused with 100% argan oil. Being someone who has oily skin, I was a little skeptical about trying the face oil. Thankfully, she created a light version. Surprisingly, this did not make my skin oily or greasy & it has improved the softness of my skin. I started off mixing it with my daily moisturizer, but once I learned it wouldn't break me out, I chose to use it on its own. It's a great product & I"ll be buying it again, along with this lip gloss.

I'd also heard great things about GlamGlow. I ordered the Youthmud. I'm not sure what my reasoning behind that was, but I do like it. I probably won't buy it again because I'm not a fan of the tingling; however, I think the Supermud would be perfect for me.

I actually used a coupon code to receive a mysterious makeup bag. Naturally, I used it because who doesn't love free makeup. I must admit, I haven't used any of the sample makeup that was in the bag. If any of you have used the samples I received, let me know! The bag contained Buxom Lash,  Lancome Hypnose Star Show-Stopping Mascara, Philosophy Time in a Bottle Serum, Shiseido Bio-Performance Advance Super Revitalizing Cream, & Living Proof Nourishing Styling Cream. I can't wait to try out all of these items!
