Review: Buxom Lash

Last month, I mentioned receiving some Sephora goodies from two friends. I’ve been able to try out the Buxom mascara that came in the Beach Bound kit and LOVE it!

Above is a picture of myself with no mascara which looks kind of dull! Next to it, is the mascara that can turn my lashes into long, luscious, almost false lashes!

What I love:

  • Length it provides
  • Great for volume
  • Amazing brush
  • True to it’s name, Blackest Black
  • You can get this trial size version with a lip gloss for $12 at Sephora!

What I didn’t like:

  • Not much length with one coat
  • Need to really thoroughly coat for the product to stick to lashes
  • Full size price ($19)

Above is two pictures with the difference between coats! I must say that I love the way my lashes look with the two coats so I usually stick to two coats.

All in all, I really like the idea that Sephora has with letting you buy this mascara (trial size) with a lip gloss for $12! Therefore, if you are on the hunt for a good mascara, I would definitely pick up the Beach Bound set from Sephora!

Let me know if you try this mascara!

Sale Alert!

Today I visited Sephora on my way home and saw the entire Tokidoki line on SALE! I didn’t purchase anything but I did want to share the sale in case anyone is on the hunt for some new makeup products πŸ™‚

Above is a picture of just a few things so that you can see the markdowns! I swatched a few of the colors while I browsed and they were beautiful! The packaging is so cute! Check them out if you pass by Sephora!

Nail of the Week!

Happy Saturday everyone!

A few weeks ago I wrote about a some Sephora Goodies that I received as a gift from Lia and Cindy. With the gift, I received the Sephora for OPI Perfect Pair in the color Duo You Wanna Have Fun?Β It’s a beautiful coral color and a gold fine glitter polish.

This week I used both of the polishes to create a cool look with the glitter.

I applied a base coat, two coats of the coral color and then alternated with a half of each nail with the glitter color. It came out pretty cool so I’m pretty happy with it! As you can tell from the pictures, the glitter has an amazing sheen that looks great in the sun! I’d also say that the color with no flash is more of the true color because the flash on the bottom picture makes it look a lot more on the pink side.

Hope you all enjoyed this! Have a fabulous weekend!

New Goodies from Sephora!

Good afternoon everyone! Today I was lucky enough to receive some new goodies as a gift from Lia & Cindy! I have never tried any of these items so I’m extremely excited to try them out!

First is the Sephora by OPI Perfect Pair in I’m Wired and Wild about Shimmer

Also got this Buxom Lips and Lashes set!

As mentioned, I am super excited about trying out these products! Again, thank you to Lia & Cindy for this amazing gift!

Have any of you tried these before?

Too Faced: In Your Dreams Palette + Swatches!

I’m so excited to say that I own my first Too Faced Palette! I’ve always seen the brand at stores like Sephora and Ulta but never really purchased it since it can be a bit pricey. Can I also mention that they have the cutest packaging ever!

However, this past Monday I found the In Your Dreams Palette for $9.99 at Urban Outfitters! Yes you read that right, $9.99! As you probably already know, I was extremely excited and didn’t hesitate the purchase! The palette was originally $39!

The palette is from their Holiday 2011 collection and it has absolutely gorgeous colors!

The palette contains 9 eyeshadow colors, 3 blushes and 3 lip colors!

Here are swatches:

One aspect I really like about the palette is the looks it has on the inside flap! They showcase 3 very different yet appropriate looks that can be achieved with this palette! It gives me a lot of great inspiration.

As mentioned before, I’m really excited about this purchase especially because of the deal! I have checked the Urban Outfitters website but it says they are not in stock. However, my local Urban had 2 more palettes left so I highly suggest you take a visit and check it out! It wouldn’t hurt to find one of these babies lying around the store.
