Recent Beauty Buys

Monday, May 19, 2014


So I went to Sephora today and went a tad overboard. I literally went in for more concealer, and for a Chloe perfumed deodorant I wanted to try. No deodorant, but I came out with some goodies! I've been wanting to try anything for Ole Henrikson for a while. I see their products on Youtube constantly and wanted to try the brand out. My pores aren't in the best shape, so I picked the oil-free pore refining wipes. I don't have oily skin, it's mostly dry, but these will help with the size of my pores and will absorb any pore-clogging dirt for fresher looking skin. I'll use my make-up wipes to remove my make-up, then will use one of the Ole Henrikson wipes to cleanse and exfoliate all in one step.
I also bought more of my beloved Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer. It's my absolute favorite concealer and I wear it every single day. It's great for covering up spots or under-eye bags. I'm obsessed. I actually just ordered a Bobbi Brown concealer to try out as well. So I'll report back on that.
Next, I picked up the Stila Stay All Day liquid eyeliner. I've heard dozens of people raving about this eyeliner, so I decided to pick it up. I tried it on my hand at the store and it's the deepest, darkest black. I love it. The felt tip is perfect for creating a winged liner look, which I have been really into lately.
Then I went for an Hourglass Ambient Lighting powder. I've also heard so much about these powders and decided to swatch some in store. I swatched the mood light color, and the ethereal light color. The ethereal powder was too sparkly for me. The mood light was a lavender color with tones of light pink, and I couldn't say no to it. The powder is seriously so smooth on the skin. It was super pricey at $45, but I think it will be worth every penny.
The last thing I bought was a new roll-on fragrance. I love Mary Kate and Ashley, I love Elizabeth and James, and I certainly love The Row. These girls are fashion and style geniuses and I religiously follow their every move in fashion. When I heard they were coming out with two fragrances, I knew I had to have at least one. I got the Nirvana White. The packaging alone would make me buy it. The bottles are beautiful, but I am on a budget, so I went with the rollerball. Nirvana White is very floral. It is described as a peony musk. Peonies being my favorite flower, how could I resist?

I know I went overboard! What are some recent beauty buys of your own?!
