Hey, lovelies! Can you believe January is over? It went by crazy fast. Fun fact for you, did you know statistically January is the most depressing month of the year? ..I guess that isn’t really a fun fact, but it’s interesting nonetheless. Getting back on topic, it’s one of my great friend’s birthday this weekend, and because we both love and are into beauty products and makeup we always give each other something beauty related. I wanted to get her some sort of gift set to go along with some other things I got..and I guess that sort of escalated. Sephora had free 3-day shipping with any purchase $50+, so I decided to pick myself up a few things as well. When it comes to Sephora, it’s so hard to control myself! I have been wanting to try most of these things for so long and I am super excited to use them! Let’s get right into it then!
First I’d like to say how I definitely feel like I got a good deal with the free shipping, three samples, and one deluxe sized sample. My mini samples were a Tarte blush, Smashbox CC Cream, and a MDSOLARSCIENCES sunscreen. With a coupon code I used I was able to choose one of three deluxe samples to go in my order. My deluxe sample was the Philosophy Take A Deep Breath SPF 30 sunscreen. I have loved everything I’ve tried from Philosophy, so I look forward to using this. Reviews also say that it is a great sunscreen for oily skin, which would be a huge for me! (quick tip: use the code YOURGIFT at check-out for a deluxe sample in your order)
I got two skin products that I have heard missglamourazzi and a few others talk about in videos. I ordered the First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream and the Josie Maran Argan Cleansing Oil. Since I am writing this the day after I got these things in the mail, I have tried both of these and so far I am loving them! The cleansing oil made my skin feel so fresh and clean, plus it has a really lovely scent. The Ultra Repair Cream is also wonderful. I used it once last night and once this morning on parts of my skin that are particularly dry and I already can tell a difference. If these products keep working like this I will certainly be purchasing the bigger sizes in the future!
One of the products I ordered is the Too Faced Beauty Blogger Darlings gift set. I got this as a gift for a friend and I hope she likes it. All four products that are in there are highly praised by the beauty community. If you have someone who is looking for new products to try out, I think this will make a great gift! The next thing I got I am literally beyond words excited about. I got the Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in the shade Adored. After hearing the amazing essiebutton talk about and praise these blushes in soooo many blog posts and videos I just had to try them. I wore it today and so far I am loving it. The lasting power is great and what people say about them looking better as the day goes on really is true. I was so surprised! Let’s just say I can already tell as soon as I can I will be ordering another one (or more!!) of these.
That’s all for today, loves. I hope you enjoyed reading and had an excellent week! DIY posts and maybe some recipe posts coming up soon! xoxo
