How I love Sephora, let me count the ways….you’re a one stop shop for all my needs 🙂
Stila’s new Garden Bliss collection ($25) includes:
4 x 0.15 oz Eye Shadows in Enchanting (pink champagne), Whimsy (soft gold), Splendid (bronze), and Fête (warm brown)
0.14 oz Cheek Color in Bloom (rosy pink)
0.05 oz Lip Glaze in Guava (neutral pink) update: it’s been two weeks and this gloss is almost finished I use it everyday, all day long would I purchase the full size at $22 (0.03 oz more than the one in the collection) only if it was on sale 🙁 I love it although I’m annoyed by the bulky packaging.
0.14 oz Glamoureyes Mascara in Black
Blush (powder) then the shadows top row then bottom row (no base). Unlike the previous travel palettes this is a powder blush instead of the lip/cheek convertible color included in the other palettes.
Next Stila’s other newest travel palettes; Stunning in Sayulita – Collectible Beach Palette No. 1.These cost $14 instead of the regular $10 because it’s slightly larger than the other travel ones. If you can’t tell by now I’m obsessed with collecting and of course using these Stila Travel Palettes. No.2 is already out but only at Ulta, I’ll have to get it soon since they are limited edition.
Stunning in Sayulita
4 x 0.15 oz Eye Shadows in Starfish (pink champagne shimmer), Sandbar (dark brown shimmer), Getaway (dusty mauve shimmer), Palm Trees (leaf green shimmer)
0.11 oz Cheek Color in Playa (warm pink)
0.11 oz Highlighter/Bronzer in Banderas Bay (sheer neutral pink sheen)
Both palettes side by side, the beach palette has slightly larger shadows.
The three samples; Stila shadow in kitten, Twirl fragrance (I need this perfume in my life like yesterday I LOVE IT!!!!), and a fresh Soy Face cleanser
Tokidoki Prisma Gloss in Bullets (on sale $7)
It looks purple/ mauve in the tube but applies is transparent, it gives no color pay off. It smells like grape soda but has no taste as it’s not sweet. The packaging is really cute and the top of the gloss has pink hearts and crossbones cut outs.
This is an interesting gloss in that the applicator is a paddle instead of a brush or doe foot. Personally I find it hard to control the application of the gloss, I know it’s going on my lips but for some reason if I’m not looking in a mirror it’s all over and I look a mess. Apart from that I have no complaints really other than it can be a bit sticky if you apply too much.
Freebie: a week’s supply of Lancome’s GÉNIFIQUE
Pacifica’s Indian Coconut Nectar Body Butter $5
I’ve been eyeing this body butter for a while now and Sephora out of the full size 8 oz when I placed this order 2 weeks ago, so I opted for the smaller 2.5 oz size. I am a huge coconut fan. It smells like coconut frosting but its not sweet nor sticky feeling however it does leave a weird scent I cannot identify once you apply it (I’ll work on figuring it out).
Dior’s Duo Express Instant Eye Makeup Remover (100 point redemption)
I have used this 2-3 times/week since I got it and now it’s almost finished. I love this eye makeup remover. It’s so gently, zero irritation, has a pleasant smell and it takes off everything even my many coats mascara. Would I buy the full size? Yes, but not until I finish all my other eye remover products. It’s $28 for 4.2 oz ouch but I really like it. I really do.
