Sephora Haul

1/26/2012




The other day I spent a lovely Sunday morning at Sephora working with one of their make-up artists to play with new product and get some recommendations.  I often find myself in a make-up rut and I love to try out new product and see what works best for me and my skin.

What I tried:

  • Make-up For Ever HD Foundation, Primer, & Powder: Exclusive to Sephora, this brand is designed with a photo finish in mind.  Overall, I really liked the brand, but it was a lot more make up than I was used to.  It blended well and looked great on.  
                       Verdict: I might purchase it for use on bigger events, but definitely not everyday.
  • NARS Laguna and Orgasm: Laguna as a bronzer and Orgasm as a blush.  The makeup artist who I worked with did a lot more contouring than I am used to and it looked fantastic.  I have NO idea how to re-create the look (although she did instruct me as to how), but I will be YouTubing in the future to get a better understanding.  
                     Verdict: I already use Orgasm and would consider Laguna as a supplement bronzer to my
                      Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick (which I swear by).
  • Benefit They're Real Mascara: I've been hearing a lot of hype about this mascara and it really was excellent; however, I'm hooked on Mary Kay's Lash Love.  
                     Verdict: Definitely not switching.
                     Verdict: Purchased
  • Buxom in Dolly: Every year I resolve that I will pay more attention to my lips.  I will wear lipstick more.  And every year, I fail.  This year, I took a step in purchasing a lip color and gloss that I adore.  Not only that but this brand plumps your lips and makes them look fuller.
                     Verdict: Purchased
                     Verdict: Purchased
  • Ole Henriksen Sheer Transformation: This an an all-natural brand that works to reverse spots, aging, etc.  I really liked the light formula.  My make-up artist sent me home with a sample and so far it has worked really well with my skin type.
                    Verdict: Will purchase later once my current daytime moisturizer runs out.
  • Philosophy Eye Hope Eye Cream: I liked the consistency and I think I do need to up my game as far as eye care is concerned-my dark circles are only going to get worse from here!
                    Verdict: Seriously considering purchasing later.
                    Verdict: Purchased
  • Bumble & Bumble Styling Creme: An old standby of mine that I love and couple with Josie Maran Oil product.  This time of year my fly-aways are a little out of control so I need this additional help to power through.
                    Verdict: Purchased
