It's here! My 100th post. This one is going to be about one of my favorite stores, Sephora. I know I'm not alone in my addiction. I can't go in there without buying something, which is why try I to steer clear around when rent is due. Now, if I could pay my rent in beauty products...
I have purchased so many of my great beauty finds at Sephora. They carry everything from beauty staples to hard-to-find products (some of which are exclusive to Sephora) plus they have their own line, which is pretty great.
My latest haul included a bottle of OPI's- exclusive to Sephora- "Don't Feed the Hand Models" which is a near-perfect nude. Two coats and I had the greatest complement to my natural skin tone and the dreaded mannequin-hands were not a concern.
I also picked up a tube of Benefit's latest lash lengthener, They're Real. With this mascara no one will be able to tell.
I hopped on the colorful bandwagon and could not resist getting a tube of MAKEUP FOR EVER's Rouge Artist Intense #40 (satin bright orange). Despite its clownish hue in the tube, it could not be more wearable. One swipe and you've got a pretty sheer, almost coral color. Even adding a second coat, this orange is not scary at all. I consider this my beauty risk of the summer.
My final purchase was the Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Glow Pads. These tiny little wet-naps for your face are designed to exfoliate and self-tan all in one. I must admit, it seemed counter-productive to exfoliate and self-tan together. But being that I just had to run the towelette over my face in a circular motion, I shrugged off my doubts. The wipe makes my face smell like a glass of wine, which is not a bad thing, and I woke up with a pretty and believable golden glow. Success!
