A Few of My Favourite Things: August 2014
Teaser Tuesday: Nevermore by James Patterson

Sephora Haul!

A few weeks ago I hit my local Sephora store for some new products:  


I've recently heard rave reviews about the GlamGlow products, so I decided to try their Youthmud face mask and eye treatment. The face mask came with a bonus travel-sized tube, and teeny tiny instructions in every language on the planet. I will likely need my readers AND a magnifying glass to read them!


Next I picked up the Sit Tight body firming serum and FatGirl Slim Arm Candy to help tone up my calves and upper arm area. As you can see the Sit Tight has three rollerballs on the applicator, and the Arm Candy has sever little nubs on its applicator, I'm assuming to help stimulate the skin and massage the product into the skin. It'll be interesting to see if either of these products actually does what they claim! 


I don't know why I decided I needed four new mascaras, but I did. From left to right are: Josie Maran Black Ink Argan Black Oil mascara, Dior Addict IT-Lash, Lancome Grandiose wide-angle fan effect mascara, and Urban Decay Perversion with Subversion lash primer. I also picked up some more Bare Minerals Locked and Coated waterproof lash topcoat, since none of these mascaras are waterproof, and I need waterproof to get through my day.


 The final product I bought was as total impulse grab while on my way to the register: Hourlass Femme Nude lip pencil in Nude No. 4. I have tried dozens of lipsticks, and while I like the look and colour of most lipsticks, I really don't like wearing lipstick. I tend to lick my lips a lot during the day, and rub them together as some sort of nervous habit, so lipsticks tend to get all over the place. I basically just stick to the basic Blistex lip balm. But oh, well, I have it now, so I guess I'll try it! 


 As a VIB Customer, I had a lot of points built up, and chose as my free gift the Beauty Insider Origins gift set which includes tiny sizes of their Checks and Balances face wash, GinZing eye cream, GinZing moisturizer, and High Potency Night-A-Mins skin renewal cream. They all smell delightful, and I'm looking forward to trying them out! 


So, that's it for this trip. I'm afraid I don't remember what everything cost, and I already shredded the receipt, so I can't share that info with you. Just assume since it's Sephora that it was expensive; that's a pretty safe bet! (Which is why I only go twice a year or so!)  Have a great Monday! Cheers!
