A Breath of Fresh Air

The weather is finally mild and sunny here on in the Metro area. I cannot tell you how wonderful it is to go outside with a light blazer or sweater and to finally ditch that heavy winter coat.

About a week ago, I had another internship interview, when I decided to survey the area.  I was around 20th St and Broadway. I came across the Fresh Flagship store. I was in complete and utter shock, I didn’t even know they had their own store! I rushed in like a baby at a candy store.

I wish I would have taken more photos but I was in a bit of a rush to get to my interview. The sales associates were sweet and very engaging. They let out try out their Sugar Hand Scrub, which was divine. They had a cool water fountain that you can rinse your hands off in.  The space was light and airy. It was exactly what the brand name says, fresh.

I wholeheartedly that you all stop and take a little peek if you are in the area. You can try samples, browse, and get your picture taken! How cool!

Sephora Beauty Haul

Sephora Beauty Haul

I know, I know..I haven’t updated in a while but I’m nearing my end of the semester and this is my last week of classes before Finals so this will probably be my only post for the next two weeks. I’ve been wanting to write this but I had to put it on the back burner.

On the bright side, I am now a VIB (Very Important Beauty Insider) at Sephora, which means I spent $350 in a calender year. Yes, even I cringed a little and wondered out loud what I even bought!

In this haul, I bought several things, take a look:

Tokyomilk Dark Lip Elixirs #36 Salted Caramel, Deluxe Sample of Fresh Rose Face Mask, Per-fekt Brow Perfecting Gel in Expresso, Tarte EmphasEYES Inner Rim Brightener, and butter LONDON in Macbeth

TokyoMilk Dark Lip Elixir #36: I only bought this item as I needed to get to the free shipping total and the amount that would give me the VIB status.  I didn’t think I would obsess over it and force every one of my friends to smell it.  The description was enough to reel me in but the scent was ah-may-zing.  I purchased Salted Caramel.  If you’ve ever tried the Caramel Frappe’s from McDonald’s then it smells and I would think tastes exactly like it! It leaves my lips soft and gives off a wonderful aroma for the while that your olfactory senses allows it to.

Purchase at Sephora, $7

Tarte EmphasEYES in NUDE: Everyone that knows me can see that I have terrible dark circles under my eyes thanks to a mixture of heredity and a bad habit of staying up too late. I wear concealer, foundation, and the works but I find myself looking exhausted and tired after a long night of cramming or procrastinating (I would like to a say a combination of both). Black liner is pretty and I love it but it does nothing for my dark circles, if anything, it showcases them so to combat the problem I purchased this liner. It’s surprisingly pigmented and you do not need to press hard to get the color to glide on. You glide some on your inner rim and the sides and you look much more awake. It is also great to give your eyebrows some definition and arch if you put some underneath. Love it! A little steep in the price, but from what I see it is well worth it!

Here, I offered a small swatch. I didn’t need to press too hard to get it.

Per-Fekt Brow Perfection Gel in Expresso: I have my eyebrows threaded every two weeks if I have time, if not sometimes I let them get a little unruly, to my despise. To keep my just threaded or reasonable look I use my eyebrow brush to brush the hairs back neatly. I want to fake it as long as I can so that is why I purchase this. It will not only hold the hairs in place but it will let me give them a bolder look without having to reach for an eyebrow pencil. As a Middle Eastern girl, eyebrows give my face a whole different look.  It really does matter. The brush is just like a mascara brush and allows you to control just how much you want. It also comes in different shades.  Once again, the price is a little steep but I see a little going a long way so once again it is a great product to invest in!

butter LONDON “Macbeth”: I’ve only heard good things about this brand. I’ve always been an Essie or OPI girl thanks to my mother’s great discounts but I wanted to give this brand a shot. Believe me, the $15 price tag nearly killed me as I clicked the purchase button but now while it still hurts, I adore the brand and the colors.  The colors are unlike anything I’ve ever seen and you don’t get that strong formaldehyde scent with it either. It goes on smoothly and uniformly. I was unable to take a picture so I will supply you with 2 I found on Polyvore. I hope to buy a few more as treats in the future. For $15, it’s a lot buttt..the color is so pretty!

This was my Sephora Beauty Haul! I have not yet tried the Rose Mask Sample but once I do I will most definitely do a review on it! I’ve always got a few more post ideas lined up but I will get working on them once finals finally end!
