NARS Audacious Lipstick in “Anita,” “Geraldine,” “Brigitte,” and “Michiyo.”

NARS The Multiple in “Portofino,”  Eve Lom 3 Muslin Cloths (a part of my daily skin routine)

Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in “Trooper,” Smashbox Always Sharp Lip Liner in “Rosebud,” Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz in “Dark Brown,” and Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed in “Opal”


It’s a rare occasion that I can stop in Sephora (or Ulta, or Target) without buying way more than I intended. Case in point: the above photo. I stopped in to replenish a few of my staples, which always run out around the same time: Too Faced Beauty Balm, Too Faced “Perfect Pink” liplinerAnastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz, and some new Eve Lom Muslin Cloths. Well, they apparently no longer carry the first two, so the logical thing would’ve been to get the other two and leave. But instead, I went looking for an alternative for the lipliner, which led me to testing out the NARS Audacious Lipsticks  I never got around to trying, and then somehow I wound up swatching highlighters. In short, don’t let me go to a makeup store or counter, ever again. But since I did, I went home and played with all of my new makeup that I didn’t need:

    I wasn’t actually going to leave a comment, I just came to see what you bought in Sephora but then I saw your photos and I was like, OMG you look so incredibly beautiful, I just had to tell you! I’m so envious… I wish I had your eyebrows 😀
    (I’m not a crazy stalker woman, btw… just honest!)

    Gosh, your makeup looks stop me in my tracks!! And I’m with you – stopping in Sephora is like stopping in Target – I’ll always spend over $50, easily!! Just gorgeous – those Ardell lashes and the Kat Von D liner are two of my favorite beauty products ever!!1
