First of all, let’s ignore the fact that I’ve been missing for three months. That’s a story for another post. I wanted to show you guys the things I got from the Sephora VIB sale! I’m actually super pleased with everything I managed to grab, despite some of the things I had my eye on selling out (ie: the four pack of Clarisonic brush heads for $80… til next time I guess 😢). We all know that ya girl LOVES a good deal, and I can confidently say that I got my money’s worth this time around! I saved $45 on everything, which is pretty good considering I got a lot of things.
Also, something that I learned this time around is that the Sephora app and website are not that accurate when it comes to stock in store.
Some things I wanted on the app said that no store in my area had the item in stock. Which was a lie because I went to two different stores on two different occasions, and they still had the items.
Also, I found an item in store that had the “online only” label on it on the app/website
Trust no one!!! Jokes. Don’t go to those extremes. But from my experience, I’m probably just going to do my VIB sale shopping in store from now on.
I think the most frustrating, yet rewarding part of doing my makeup is creating the perfect wing. Most days, I miraculously get it right on the first try, and other days I’m struggling for ten minutes before I give up and leave the house with janky eyeliner (which I don’t recommend lol NEVER give up on your eyeliner if you can help it). So I’ve compiled a bunch of tips and tricks that I use to help me create my wing the way I like, and maybe it’ll help you too!
Hey hey! I’ve been studying for an upcoming midterm on Thursday and during my study break (which was definitely longer than it should have been but whatever) I decided to just do my makeup since I’m going out later.
Maybelline FitMe Matte and Poreless foundation in 310 – Sun Beige
Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Champagne Pop
NYX Matte Bronzer in Medium
ABH Dipbrow Pomade in Dark Brown
Maybelline Waterproof Liquid eyeliner in Black (obviously lol)
Ardell Baby Wispiesfalsies
Covergirl trunaked palette in Nudes
Colourpop Ultra Matte lip in Limbo
On my lips, I’m wearing Colourpop’s Ultra Matte Lip in Limbo. It’s a dark chocolate dream, I swear. Like I think this colour would look good on anyone! Then again, I think all dark colours can be pulled off by anyone, regardless of skin tone. The formula of this particular lipstick is more drying than the other matte lips I’ve tried from Colourpop though. I know May is pretty much over and summer is around the corner, so a lot of people are using more summery colours in their makeup looks but I think if you want to rock a dark lip on a sunny day, then do it! I love dark lips and I’m not gonna let a season dictate when I can and can’t wear certain colours!
Since my lips are so bold, I just went really light with my eyes. Then again, I usually always do LOL. I used the Covergirl Trunaked Nudes palette which I actually have been loving! I’m pretty sure it’s meant to be a waaay more affordable dupe for the Naked palette. There’s actually three different Trunaked palettes which means a dupe for each Naked palette. (Anyways if you want me to go in depth, just let me know)
I used Shell all over my lid, Fawn in the crease and outer lid and Buff just in the middle of my eyelid. I think all these blended really well together and left me with a really simple, natural look, that still brings attention and dimension to my eyes.
That’s it from me! Gotta get back to studying lol I hope you all have a good rest of your day 🙂
One day, as I was getting ready, I decided I wanted to try a different colour of lipstick. So I opened my makeup drawer and realized I don’t have much variety when it comes to my lipstick collection. With the exception of my everyday lipstick (Teddy Bare by Milani), the only other colours of lipstick I own are shades of bright and dark red and I took that as a sign that I should probably go buy more lipstick (any excuse to buy makeup is a good excuse for me LOL). I’m usually the kind of person who frequents the drugstore for makeup, but I just finished school and I did really well this semester so I decided to treat myself and go to Sephora. I’m on the website pretty much everyday anyways, so the Too Faced Melted Matte liquid lipstick was already on my radar.
I’m not gonna lie, the first thing that caught my eye were the names of the lipsticks. I seriously told all my friends that I needed this entire collection because I swear every single shade name related to me in one way or another . Okay well not every single shade name, but I made them relate to me somehow. Queen B though?! That’s me! I need that in my life, just for the name alone ugh. I’m so extra, I apologize. Let me get to the actual review LOL. (PS scroll down to see a full list of colours and names!)
7mL / 0.23 fl. oz.
On the Sephora website, most of the shades are sold out so your best bet is to go in stores, I found that there was more selection that way
Rich, full, kissable color that doesn’t shrivel or crack
