So today I had to drop my boyfriend off at work in Boston and I kept telling myself I would NOT drive over to the Back Bay and go to the Prudential Center. It's a dangerous, dangerous place. To keep a long story short, I blacked out and ended up parked on Newbury Street. I reluctantly got out of my car and walked over to the mall. I don't know why I went further into Boston because it was so damn hot. I was sweating just walking from my car to the mall, which was no more than a five minute walk.
Anyways, I walked into Sephora and told myself I was going no further into the mall. I did need some things, but I was mostly just walking around checking stuff out. I wanted to buy the new Marc Jacobs Daisy Dreams perfume so bad, but I couldn't justify it. I have so many perfumes I don't even use. I need to use up my Lola and then hopefully I'll make the splurge.
These are the products I picked up! Some of them were repeat purchases, actually all were but two. I'm just going to go through each product and my opinion on it!
I'm pretty sure everyone knows I wear this mascara religiously. The packaging is amazing. It's so sleek and I love the silver color. It also is the only mascara that has ever lengthened my lashes to the point where I've noticed. Other mascara's are okay, but I never had really noticed a huge difference. The first time I used this product, I was sold. It volumizes and lengthens in just a couple of swipes onto the lashes. I've been using this mascara for almost two years and I don't see myself using anything else in the near future.
This is also a repeat purchase for me. I've gone through like 5 of these bottles of concealer. This is seriously my holy grail. I carry it with me EVERYWHERE, and for a $30 bottle of concealer, it's pretty darn worth it. The formula is so creamy and it hides all of my imperfections perfectly. I use the shade 'Vanilla' and it is a perfect match. I just dab a little here and there after I apply my foundation, and my face looks as good as new. My blemishes are covered, my baggy eyes are concealed, and I'm ready for the day!
This is not my first Fresh product, but this is my first tube of the original Sugar lipbalm. I have another lipbalm that is colored, and I'm not a huge fan of tinted lipbalms. I don't know why, I would much rather a gloss or a lipstick. This balm is clear and I've used it twice and I can already feel how my lips are much softer. I don't use lipbalm as often as I should, and I think this will change that. The packaging is cute, and I like how the top is a screw-on. It's a little pricey at $25, but I know I'll get my moneys worth out of this.
This is the Anastasia Beverly Hills Clear Brow Gel. I got a sample size of this in my Birchbox and have been obsessed ever since. I did buy a Milani brow gel, and the quality wasn't even comparable. This gel really seals and locks in not only the shape of your brows, but the color as well. Being a girl with very little natural brow, I fill mine in everyday with the Brow Wiz. After filling in, I use this gel to brush through my brows and lock them in. The gel makes them last all day long and it was seriously a no brainer purchasing the full version at only $22.
The last thing I purchased was a NARS eyeshadow duo in Key Largo. I recently saw Emily of Cupcakes and Cashmere create a beautiful eye look with this duo and immediately wanted it. Both shades are beautiful and I can't wait to create some looks with it. I am definitely a neutral toned shadow type of girl and I thought this duo was perfect for my collection. They're a little pricey at $35 for the duo, but each pan is a pretty good size, and the mirror is an added plus.
What are some recent beauty purchases you have made?
