I recently made a last minute trip to Sephora to buy a few things that I needed. This trip was really exciting because I was on the hunt for a new makeup bag. But of course I didn’t leave with just that. Sephora always sucks me in, especially during the holidays. I was proud of myself for keeping my purchases to a minimum (LOL) but I did pick up a few extra things that turned out to be new favorites!
First, I found the Sephora Collection Sparkle and Shine makeup bag in the Weekender. I wasn’t aware that Sephora had come out with makeup bags for the holidays so when I saw this one I was so excited!!! Not only do I love the glitter and pattern all over the bag, but the size is perfect. This bag is $38 which isn’t bad considering how much room is in here! The two sides are very deep so every single item I brought on my trip fit in this one bag! I am a makeup over packer so this means a lot.
Next up I got the Kat Von D tattoo liner. I had been meaning to pick this up for a while and just kept forgetting. This product is amazing! One of my friends told me how easy it made applying liquid liner and she was right. This makes the application process so effortless! The liner is so black and doesn’t move or smudge all day. This is now a must have in my every day routine!
Next I saw that Bite Beauty had released a gloss for the holidays. This is the gold creme gloss, which is straight up gold! I will admit, this is a really pretty and pigmented gloss. I also love the smell because it smells like fruit. However I’m a little iffy on this product. There’s nothing wrong with it, it’s just not very wearable for me. It is SO pigmented and it does look pretty sheered out over a lipstick. However, I find that when I put it over a lipstick it tends to break it up. I think I will be returning this one because I’m not crazy about it and for $22 I would like to be more impressed with the product.
Next I randomly decided to try this Tarteist mascara by Tarte Cosmetics. I am so pleased with this product! I didn’t think I could ever find a mascara that compared to my current favorites but this may be the most gorgeous mascara I have ever tried. This makes my lashes look fake, in a good way. It is super lengthening and volumizing! I also love that this mascara holds the curl in my lashes all day long.
What’s on your Sephora wish list?!
