Let me just start out by saying that I love Jaclyn. I think she has such an amazing personality and she is so talented. I love Champagne Pop, so when I heard she was releasing a whole collection, I knew I had to get my hands on it. I was lucky enough to get this during the pre-sale on the app, so I beat the big rush on this. When the palette got delivered to my house, I had just left for vacation, so I had to wait two weeks to officially get my hands on this beauty.
Have you ever been walking through a store and you make eye contact with a product and you know that you have to have it, no questions asked. That was me and this palette. I was strolling through Sephora and I saw this and it was love at first sight. I went home from the mall and read about 100 reviews on this, and heard only good things, so I was sold. One week later, I walked into Sephora with a purpose and this beauty became mine.
I love mascara. I have about 6 open mascaras at the moment that I’m using and alternating between. I’m also very particular about my mascara. It needs to be volumizing and lengthening, but also long lasting and not smudge on my lower lash line. It’s needless to say I have high standards. I’ve yet to find one mascara that meets all my standards by itself, which is why I layer two together, one for thickening and one for lengthening.
I’m addicted to YouTube videos. Every once in awhile I’ll go through a phase where I’ll binge watch one person over the span of two days. Most recently it was Jaclyn Hill. In case you’ve never heard of her, she’s a professional makeup artist and YouTuber. She’s literally the best. A couple months ago, she teamed up with Becca Cosmetics to create what she calls her “perfect highlighter.” The result was Champagne Pop, a soft white gold with pinky peach undertones. The color is available exclusively at Sephora.
For my birthday the other day, I decided to treat myself to a couple of things I’ve been eyeing for awhile. Since I’m a Platinum member at Ulta, I got $10 off anything in store for my birthday. I took this opportunity to get the Lorac Unzipped palette. I was in the market for another pink toned palette, something similar to the Naked 3, but with a few deeper pink/maroon shades. In comes Lorac. I love their products to begin with, I’ve yet to be disappointed with anything from them. Everything is so creamy and blendable, and just a dream to work with. This palette is no exception.
2015 was the year of eyeshadows for me. I started out the year with just the Naked 1 and 2, and ended it with about seven more palettes. I know that seems like a lot, but I use them all and I never bought anything full priced, it was all either presents or discounted with coupons. So, that’s how I’m rationalizing it. Don’t judge me.
Anyways. Around Christmas I picked up the Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette. I love Too Faced shadows. They’re such good quality and so pigmented and they’re just a dream to work with. So obviously I was so excited to get the Chocolate Bar.
I was a little let down to say the least.
The texture of these products are magical.
So I’m going to be honest. The only reason I got this was because I had a 10% off and was a few dollars away from free shipping.
This has always been one of those products where I’ve been meaning to try it but kept pushing it back because I didn’t want to spend the money. So when I had a discount and saw the sample size in the suggestion area, I thought why not?
As you can see by the title, I sort of have a love hate relationship with Maybelline’s palette The Blushed Nudes. I bought the palette sort of on a whim one day from Ulta. I had seen a couple people online create incredible looks with it, and thought that, as an eyeshadow lover, I needed it.
My favorite thing about buying anything online through Sephora is the free samples, cause, come on, who doesn’t love free stuff?! Every now and then there will be a sample on Sephora that seems like it’s too good to be true, so you put it in your cart quickly and check out before they realize it was a mistake and take it away. This was my reaction when I got a sample of the Laura Mercier Eye Basics Primer in the color Wheat.
