More shopping? YUP! Sephora and Ulta Haul
Apparently having a blog has given me good reason to do more shopping lately. At least, that's how I justified these purchases. Hey, for now, it works. Anyway, onto the goods. I have been hitting the pan on a few of my colors in my Urban Decay Naked 2 palette and so I decided I was in the market for a suitable replacement. As I strolled around Sephora I lingered between the Bobbie Brown Nectar & Nude palette and the Clinique Limited Edition Nudes palette. Both palettes are really beautiful but I had to go for the Clinique. I mean look at it... It's so pretty. 8 distinct shades vs. the 6 in the Bobbi Brown for $10 cheaper. After I swatched both I was clearly sold on the Clinique palette. The colors just seemed to work better with my skin tone. I've only used this palette twice, but so far I am completely loving how these shadows apply. They are on par with Urban Decay, which is really saying something.
Everyone and their mother has been blogging about these YSL Volupte Glosses. After checking them out in Sephora I understood why. These glosses are perfect. They have the strangest awesome applicator and are just really nice to wear. I chose the color Corail Gandoura and it is just perfect for spring. The other two glosses are also all over the place. I think it may be my new obsession to collect NYX butter glosses and the Parfumerie nail polishes. Simply put, they are cheap and awesome. They are perfect for throwing in your bag and having on hand whenever needed. The colors below are Vanilla Cream Pie and Tiramisu. Yes they smell as delicious as their names.
Last but certainly not least, MORE spring nail polish (and I have more on the way). I realized that I have very few spring polishes. Most of my collection is either ice cold winter or dark vampy nail polish, nothing that I deem suitable for spring. I decided I needed some bright colors in my life and Revlon's Parfumerie line is saving the day. These little guys are so great and cheap. See my review here for the full run down on Pink Pineapple and Apricot Nectar. I have some Butter London on the way from Ulta's 2 for $15 sale on the way as well. I'm in full spring mode and definitely loving it!
That's all for now! Check out the products below if you are interested. Most of these products can be found in Sephora and Ulta, but several can be found at Target or wherever Revlon and OPI are sold.
