Sephora Online Shopping Trip - Product Reviews
As I mentioned, I made a Valentine's Day haul at Sephora. Lots of products to recap, but I'll try to keep it concise for you!
Clinique Long Last Glosswear - $15 - First time buy and I would buy again. It's sticky, hence the long-last part. I bought it in Bonfire, which has a nice color that would suit anyone. Flecks of glitter, but not in a juvenile way. Love it! I want some other colors!
Bobbi Brown Corrector - $23 - Third time buy. I love this stuff - it cancels out the dark circles my grandmother passed onto me better than anything I've ever found. I only have to buy this about once per year.
Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer Kit - $33 - Third time buy. It goes over the corrector and brightens. Love love love! Again - it lasts me about a year.
Clinique Lash Power Mascara Long Wearing Formula - $16 - Second time buy. I love this mascara because it's the "tube" type that doesn't budge and the brush is tiny - easy to use. I have oily lids and this doesn't cause raccoon eyes! This is a darkening mascara, which I like for my light lashes. If I want thickening, I add a Maybelline mascara. Right now I'm using Stilletto.
Sephora Collection Instant Eye Makeup Remover - $8.50 - First time buy. Where have you been all my life??!! Not too oily, not too creamy and works wonders, even on my Clinique mascara. With other makeup removers, I cannot get that mascara off without serious work. Just buy this - seriously.
Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion Tube Original - $20 - First time buy. I have been using MAC's Paint Pot, but I love UD products, so I thought I'd try this. I love how this goes on and works great to prevent creasing, etc. I like the MAC coverage a bit better, but next time I will buy the UD again.
FREE SAMPLE - Kate Somerville ExfoliKate Intensive Exfoliating Treatment - $85 for 2 oz. I liked the scrub, but personally I wouldn't spend that on this product because it wasn't that much better than much more inexpensive stuff I've tried. I am in love with the scent and results of this for only $7. Love me some Target.
FREE SAMPLE - Marchesa Parfum D'Extase - $60 for 1 oz. - I like the name more than the scent. It was way too floral for me. But, if you love floral, it's a clean scent, so go for it.
FREE SAMPLE - Carolina Herrera 212 Men - $58 for 1.7 oz. - I liked it, but the scent didn't curl my toes or last long on my hubby. He said he likes his CK1 much better. I don't know if that dates him or if the ol' tried and true is still the best ;)
