I have a problem. I am addicted to Sephora. I placed two separate orders on their website two days in a row. Smh! But, I stocked up on some pretty awesome products! See what they are below! 🙂

Smith’s Rosebud Salve, $6
This lip balm is AMAZE BALLSSSS!!!! It is super moisturizing. It is a long lasting moisturizer and can be used to moisturize your entire body. I just prefer using it on my lips. I’ll definitely be adding this to my collection of lip moisturizers for the winter!
Make Up Forever HD Microfinish Powder, $30 (0.3 oz), $19 (0.14 oz); Sephora Setting Powder Brush, $11
I used my rewards to get the Make Up Forever setting powder. I am not sure I am a fan of it. I have never used a setting powder before, but it made my skin really dry and left a ghostly glow to my skin. No matter how little I used, I still had an ashy look to my skin, which was only noticeable when I took a picture with the flash on. But God forbid I wear this in public and someone takes a picture of me with the flash on. How horrible would that be!?! LOL! I may give this setting powder another try…but it will be a while.
The setting powder brush is really awesome. The bristles are very soft and applied the powder very well. The shape and size of the brush allow you to apply bronzers and blushes for a natural looking result. I definitely recommend this brush if you wear bronzers and blushes often…even if you don’t, it’s a good brush to have in your collection.
Marc Jacobs Marc’er Precision Pen Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner in Blacquer, $30
OMG! Am I glad I chose this as my free gift with my purchase or what!?! This eyeliner is perfect! It is a super glossy back and application is flawless. The fine pen tip allowed for the perfect line and made winging the eyeliner super easy. I have been a die hard fan for MAC ProLongwear Eyeliner…but for just a few dollars more, I may have to upgrade my life to this eyeliner! It was just that amazing!
Nails, Inc. Nail Polish in London Lane, Sold out
Ever since I started using the Nails, Inc. 45 Second Top Coat, I have been in love with Nails, Inc. polishes. Unfortunately this polish is sold out now and I am unsure whether or not it will be restocked…but, I love the blue flakes suspended in a clear polish. I applied it on an accent nail (pictured) on top of a gray nail polish and I received so many compliments (don’t mind the bottle of SquareHue polish, it’s just the only picture I had showing the Nails, Inc. polish. lol!) Hopefully it will be restocked and if not, I will work on finding a dupe of this polish that will give you a similar effect.
I am a fan of Sephora’s Formula X collection for the variety of colors. I am not a fan of the quality. The polish chips after two days or so…which is a bummer. So, I only buy this brand when it is on sale. Lol! Okay, on to the polish at hand. Unfortunately, I haven’t had a chance to paint my nails with this particular polish. I’m hoping I can get around to painting my nails tonight if I have some free time (be on the lookout on my Instagram for a picture). Anywho, I’m a little on the fence about this color. I was thinking that it would be a little darker based on the photos on the website, but looking at the bottle it seems pretty light. Maybe it will apply darker when I paint my nails. Let’s keep our fingers crossed about that! Unfortunately, this color is sold out, but if you click on the picture, you can see all of the other amazing colors Sephora has to offer!
Update: I got around to painting my nails. The color came out the way I expected it to, which I was pleased with. But, like I stated, it chipped within two days…even though that could possibly be attributed to me washing my hair. Either way, I’ll be repainting my nails this weekend.
Have you tried any of these products or do you plan to? I’d love to know!
