Since I got money for Christmas, I went to Sephora today. I didn’t leave with anything that I intended to get, and instead, left with things I had no intention of buying.
I also picked one thing up from Wal Mart, and I’m going to show that as well, at the end.
The Sephora where I live is a small one, inside of JcPenney, and it’s only been there for about 6 months or so. This is the first time I’ve ever purchased anything from there.
I went with intentions of getting the Urban Decay Primer Potion, Urban Decay Naked Palette, Urban Decay Smoked Palette and the Too Faced Chocolate Bronzer. I didn’t get any of these things.
Instead I got:
I had no intentions of buying the Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Exposed, because I thought it was too expensive. Don’t get me wrong, I was DYING to get it, but I didn’t want to spend $25 on a blush. But, after getting to the store and “just looking at it”, I had to have it.
Let me just say, I went into Sephora, saying with 100% certainty that under no circumstances am I paying $25 for a blush, and then, I paid $25 for a blush. I have no willpower. It was just too pretty to leave behind! I’m not a pink blush kind of girl, this is perfect for me.
I also had no intention of purchasing Too Faced Shadow Insurance. I’m a UDPP girl, always have been. But mine is empty, and Sephora was sold out, even of the minis. They recommended this one, so, I’ll try it. It was $18, so $2 cheaper than UDPP. I was told that this is better for oily lids than UDPP. We shall see, Too Faced, we shall see.
I had completely forgotten the Lorac 3D Liquid Lustre drops existed. I’ve wanted them for a very long time, but I forgot Sephora had them. I was about to leave, but decided to glance at the Lorac Pro Palette, and saw these underneath. They were only $16, so I decided to pick them up.
This stuff is like liquid fairy dust. Guess what I’ll be wearing on New Years Eve?
I put in 2 blurry shots to show the glitter. 🙂 That’s only 1 drop!
I wanted the Urban Decay Palettes, and they had them in stock, but after seeing them in person and swatching them, it occurred to me that I don’t “need” them, so I’m not going to buy them. So not like me. I still really want them, and I’m kind of disappointed even that I didn’t buy them, but I’m on a budget, and I’m spending $200 Saturday getting my tattoo finished (finally), so I decided I didn’t need it right now. If I get desperate, I told myself I can buy the Naked Basics palette, but I really don’t think I need it. I have the Balm Nude Tude Palette, and it has a lot of similarities to the Naked palette, and I don’t wear nude shadows everyday, I’m usually more of a bright eyeshadow kind of girl.
And, I couldn’t justify buying the Smoked palette, because $49 for it seems a bit steep to me. Pretty yes, but possibly not worth $49.
If we’re being honest here, I’m kind of trying to hold out and save up to make a MAC palette. Is that a better idea than buying an Urban Decay one? I’ve never owned a MAC eyeshadow, but I’ve heard they are better quality. Can anyone confirm, or recommend some MAC colors? 🙂
So, after Sephora we walked around the mall for a bit, and I bought a little stuffed Oogey Boogey from the Nightmare Before Christmas at Hot Topic. He is so cute! I posted his picture on Instagram, if you want to see him. You’ll love him too! Also, I spend way too much money on a hat. But, it too is adorable. It’s leopard print and fuzzy. I’ll take a picture wearing it soon so you can see.
After I got finished spending too much money on stuff at Hot Topic, we went to Wal Mart.
Unfortunately, the Wal Mart we stopped at didn’t carry Wet n Wild products, which made me kind of sad.
But, I finally caved and bought a Maybelline Color Tattoo in Tough as Taupe.
Look what I did to it?! The very first time I opened it, my finger nail attacked it. 🙁
I’ve heard so many good things about the color tattoos, so I’m hoping this is as good as everyone makes it sound. It was only $5.
Hopefully I’ll be able to pick up some Wet n Wild palettes soon, as I only have one so far.
Let me know if you’d like to see a review for any of these products, I’d be happy to post one. 🙂
Thanks for reading this post! I rambled a lot this time, sorry!
