What's New At Sephora?

Today's the last day for the Sephora VIB sale and there are some fun, new products out. There's always something new at Sephora. Sometimes I can't keep up! But here are some interesting new products:

Glamglow Powercleanse
Kat Von D Ink Liner
Stila Aqua Glow Watercolor Blush
Makeup Forever Artist Plexi Gloss

I've been wanted to try all these Glamglow cleansers, but haven't picked any up yet. The Kat Von D ink liner has been out for awhile, but she's come out with new, bold shades. The Stila blush is part of their Summer collection so I can only imagine the rest of the Summer collection should be up soon. The MUFE Plexi Gloss is something I've seen sneak peeks of and they look pretty pigmented! 

What are your thoughts on these?

GlamGlow YouthCleanse

GlamGlow has come out with two cleansers, SuperCleanse (white) and ThirstyCleanse (blue). I'm seeing something new on the Sephora website, though! They released the YouthCleanse (black) and I know the YouthMud mask is pretty popular next to the SuperMud mask. The cleanser retails for $39 for 5 fl. oz. I personally haven't tried any of their cleansers yet, but I've heard they can bepretty  harsh on the skin although the products claims that it's gentle. Certain skin types react differently to certain chemicals, though. Maybe this one will be different. What are your thoughts or experiences with these cleansers?

New Glamglow Mask

Okay so my girl Bellynim posted about a new product from Glamglow yesterday and I just had to share it with all of you because I am super excited about it - as I am with most beauty products, duh! But they are launching a new face mask called FLASHMUD that is meant for brightening your skin. So if your skin is looking a little dull and needs a little pick me up to put that glow back in, this will be the mask for you! It is releasing in June and one can only assume the price will be the same as the other masks ($69 USD). I know the price is crazy, but trust me their products are usually worth it!

Skin Deep: Skincare Products Review

I wasn't really that into skin care up until this year. I guess since I'm getting older I'm starting to realize that taking care of your skin is important. I never really invested in anything for my skin other than a daily face wash. Now I'm skin care crazy! Here are some of my recent skin care products.

Peter Thomas Roth - Skinstant Mask
I had never heard of this brand until I started using Makeup Social. A girl had posted a picture of these before they re-released the set and I looked everywhere and couldn't find it! Thankfully, Sephora brought the set back for the holidays and hopefully to stay! This set is 3 face masks that are all 1.7 oz (a full size is 5 oz) There is a cucumber, a rose stem, and a pumpkin. Out of the three, the pumpkin is my absolute favorite! It exfoliates and leaves you skin feeling so soft plus it smells AMAZING to the point where you almost want to eat it - but don't. This set costs $45 which isn't bad especially if you just want to try them. Just for one full size mask is $45 for the cucumber and rose stem. The pumpkin one I believe is $58. I'm almost positive they have a smaller set that is like 0.5 oz and it comes with all three but it is only $20. So if you can't see yourself spending the $45, go for the $20 one; either way, I highly recommend this set!

GlamGlow Gift Sexy
Okay, who here has not heard of GlamGlow yet? Let me put you on to an amazing skin care line! I got the GlamGlow Gift Sexy set for Christmas which included the two in the picture (black - youthmud, blue - thirstymud) and also the white one called supermud but I used that one already. The price might shock you, but just for ONE 1.7 oz jar, it is $69. YIKES! I heard so much hype over these things that I had to try them myself, but $69 for ONE?! Thankfully, I didn't have to pay full price for just one. They came out with this gift set (1 full size 1.7 oz and 2 mini 0.5 oz) so I think that made it well worth it. Needless to say, my favorite is the white jar. It cleans out my pores so well and leaves my skin feeling renewed. I also like the black one and how tingly it makes my skin feel. I haven't had a chance to try the blue one just yet. I know the price is pretty outrageous, but to give you a little bit of background; this line was created for the movie stars (hence the star symbol and the Hollywood written across). But it was meant to help treat breakouts immediately for the movie stars. I think this is more of a luxury item than anything but I would say it's something to try at least once! I really like the product so I think I'll continue purchasing the white one. They also have a green one called powermud that I'm anxious to try and a new every day cleanser that I cant't wait to try as well.
Peter Thomas Roth 24K Gold Set
Here is another Peter Thomas Roth product. This was a set that cost $85 - excuse me? Did you just say $85? Yes...Eeek. The price is ridiculous, but the mask ALONE costs $85. With this set, you get 5 other PTR items that probably would have ran your bill up to about $200. I personally have not tried any of these products yet, but it includes the 24k Gold Mask, Un-wrinkle Turbo, FirmX Peeling Mask, Anti-Aging Cleansing Gel, Instant FirmX Eye, and Camu Camu Powder. I'm anxious to try them all!  

 Boscia Little Black Book
This is also a first time brand purchase. This is the first thing I own from Boscia. I thought the name was adorable "Little Black Book". I can't exactly remember how much this was, but I don't believe it was too expensive. It comes with 4 different products: Detoxifying Black Cleanser, Luminizing Black Mask, Revitalizing Black Hydration Gel, and No Pores No Shine T-Zone Treatment. I've only tried the cleanser so far and I already love it. I think it is going to become my new daily cleanser of 2015.

Friday Favorites

Today I want to share with you my favorite cosmetic brands.

I'm legit head over heels in love with this company. From the packaging to the products. Their packaging is just so sleek and classy and they recently changed their formulas to a few of their products making them BOMB DOT COM. Their blushes are so pigmented and the lipsticks are very creamy with a wide selection of color. Definitely in my top 3 favs!

Bite Beauty
I was only recently introduced to this brand, but I see a lot of people talking about it and many popular YouTube beauty gurus are raving too. Let's just say I see why it's highly talked about.

This is the one drugstore brand I don't mind picking up. They typically have great products for an even better price. And I've heard through the grapevine that this line is like the MAC of the drugstore world.

Too Faced
I can never choose what I want from Too Faced because they have such great things. From their highlighters and bronzers to their lipsticks - I don't mind splurging on this brand. And their packaging is always to die for - especially their holiday packaging!

Urban Decay
So Urban Decay is actually my first brand I purchased a prestige item from (the most talked about palettes - Naked 1, 2, and 3). Little did I know the variety this company had and has to offer. I recently tried their lipsticks and I seriously think it might be my favorite brand for lipsticks. They are so creamy and pigmented I could die!

Peter Thomas Roth
As for skin care, PTR has always got my back Although they're a bit pricey, they're worth every penny! I'm obsessed with their face masks!

I know this is another pricey brand, but again, so worth it! I know there are a few drugstore dupes for their mask, but they've come out with a few great masks that don't have dupes. I'm sure some of you don't know (because I didn't for awhile) but this brand was actually made for celebrities when they got breakouts to help them clear up over night (which is probably why the price tag is so high).

I'd love to hear your favorite beauty and skin care brands so I can try them out!

Top Ten Tuesday

It's ONLY Tuesday. As much as I hate to say that, at least it's TOP TEN TUESDAY! Today is going to be a top ten from products I'm purchasing from Sephora with my 20% off coupon code (unfortunately the codes cannot be used more than once or else I'd share with you darlings!) 

1. Tarte Bon Voyage
I've heard so many good things about this set and who could beat all of this for $59? The colors in the palette are mostly neutral which are my go-to's but there are other, darker colors in there if you're more adventurous!

2. Glamglow Gift Sexy
Okay, let's put this into perspective. ONE full size (1.2 oz) container runs you to about $69 at the cashier plus tax. This set contains 1 full size and two 0.05 oz containers for the same price! And if you feel like that isn't saving much, let me just say the 0.05 oz are about $20 each, so you're saving about $40 bucks, getting 3 items instead of 1 and you get to try 3 of their masks. Hallelujah!

3. Too Faced La Belle Carousel
I think the packaging on this is SUPER cute and I can't get enough of it. It comes with a mini mascara, has eye shadows, bronzer, and blush! What more could you ask for?

4. Peter Thomas Roth 21st Birthday Kit
I've heard PTR is great with their skin care products and I've been really into skin care lately so I figured this would be a good set to try. I haven't heard anything about these specific products, but I guess I'll find out!

5. Makeup Forever HD Complexion Starter Kit
I've been really wanting to try some MUFE products so here's the perfect little kit to get started :)

6. Boscia Little Black Book
More skin care stuff... LOL. But I've seen the black Boscia mask used on a lot of people so I figured, why not?

7. Stila Stay All Day Liquid Liner in Black
Because my travel size one dried out (waahhhh) My absolute FAV eyeliner!

8. NARS Virtual Domination Cheek Palette
When I first saw this palette my eyes we automatically drawn to it. I don't have anything NARS so this will be my first product from them and I'm so excited it'll be this!

9. Bobbi Brown Bronze Glow
Oh. My. Heavens! Can we say gorgeous? This is another product line I don't have anything from and I've heard so much hype about this beauty so I'm excited to say this will be my first Bobbi Brown product. 

10. Peter Thomas Roth 24K Gold Mask Magic Kit
Because it's 24K gold, why else?! 

BONUS: I reached VIB!

Hope you lovelies enjoyed. What did YOU get with your 20% off?!

Is It Worth the Hype?: GlamGlow

For awhile now I've been hearing about this product called GlamGlow. It is a face mask that claims to suck the dirt right out of your pores. Yeah right, huh? At $69 for one small jar at 1.7 oz, is it really worth the money? Seriously, I wasn't about to spend almost 70 dollars on a face mask that may or may not work. Well, the sale gods answered my prayers because I was so anxious to try this mask, but refused to pay that much. So, I found the mask on eBay for almost half price! I believe there are 4 different GlamGlow masks; a blue container, a white one, a black one, and the newest being a green one. I bought the one in the black container that says Youthmud Tinglexfoliate Treatment. The same night I received it in the mail, I absolutely had to try it, and I did.

At first it felt like something was burning my face and I thought it was defective or I was having an allergic reaction. It really scared me actually, until someone on MakeupSocial confirmed for the first minute or so that's what the mask does. Then it started to slowly harden in the areas that weren't problematic. The way you know it's finished is when it dries from a gray-ish color to a light green. On problem areas, it tends to stay gray longer because it has to work a little harder in that area. Because it doesn't all dry at once and only certain spots dry faster, it looked like I had army paint all over my face. Once it was completely dry, I rinsed with warm water as directed and I instantly felt smoother skin. This is now my holy grail face product! The package says you can get about 17 masks out of it, or over 1,000 spot treatments if you just want to use it for problem areas instead of your entire face.

So, is this product worth the hype? Yes! This lives up to the hype. Would I suggest others to get it even for the price? Absolutely!

Wishlist Wednesday

This is another blog post idea that I found on other blogs, so I won't be taking any credit for the topic! But kudos to whoever thought of this because it's genius! Anywho, my wishlist is a million miles long, but I'll go ahead just and give you my top 20! Please note I do not own any of the photos. Also, these are all high end products, so for those of you that have a price range more towards the drugstore end, I will try to do a Wishlist Wednesday post next week with all drugstore products :)

1. Becca Highlighters in Opal, Champagne Gold,Rose Gold, and Moonstone

I don't have any of Becca's products, but these highlighters are insanely gorgeous and I absolutely NEED to get my hands on them. Added to wishlist? Check!

2. Clarisonic

Lately I've been all about skincare because I tend to pick at my face. I've heard everyone raving about this product and I'm hoping for the price, it's as good as everyone says!

3. Nuface

I've never heard any reviews on this skincare product, but I've seen t on and decided it might just be something for me. It's extremely pricey though, so, add it to the wishlist!

4. Color Me Foundation Applicator

This is a newer product to Ulta. It electronically applies your foundation, no more hurting arms from stippling! And it's only $54! I thought something like this would be a little more expensive, but trust me, I'm glad it's not!

5. BareMinerals Foundation Brush

This brush is so unique to me because of the middle. As you can see it has dense bristles and a round divet in the middle. I'm anxious to try this and see if there's a difference in my foundation application.

6. Redken Diamond Oil Shatterproof (both)

This product was referred to me on MakeupSocial and I'm dying to try it! But for $40 for 3.4 oz, I think I'll add it to my wishlist until a later time. I've heard this product lasts long, though because you only need a minimal amount for each use. And the packaging is so gorgeous and eyechatching!

7. Too Faced Everything Nice Palette 
This is a new product for Too Faced and I thik the colors are perfect for Fall. The case is an elegant gold and it comes with a mini mascara and a pink pouch to put the palette in.

8. Boscia Little Black Book from Sephora's Holiday Collection
Believe it or not, I have yet to try any Boascia product, but I have heard good things about this brand. I figured this would be the perfect pick up to try a little bit of everything!

9. Glamglow Gift Sexy from Sephora's Holiday Collection 
Because GlamGlow is all the rave lately, I absolutely NEED this. For the price of one full sized jar, you get 1 full sized jar and two mini ones. The full sized jar runs $69.00 USD and the mini jars run $19.00 USD. This is definitely a steal! Instead of spending $107.00, you save almost $40.00!

10. Best of Hourglass from Sephora's Holiday Collection

This is another brand I have yet to try, but I've heard the primer is great, although expensive. This is another great set to try a little of everything all at once.

11. Makeup Forever Starter Kit from Sephora's Holiday Collection

Again, a great steal getting 4 products for a combined cost of $79. This is great if you're just trying out the products, which is what I'll be doing, eventually when I buy it and cross it off my wishlist.

12. Peter Thomas Roth 21st Birthday Kit from Sephora's Holiday Collection

Skincare is the first step to having flawless makeup, so why not grab 5 products at once to acheive the perfect skin? PTR has done it again with their sets (I love the skinstant trio set) and I think this is a great buy!

13. Kat Von D Monarch and Chrysalis palettes 
I loved Kat Von D when she was on Miami and LA Ink, and her makeup line didn't disappoint! I'm a palette hoarder so these are a necessity to add to the collection.

14. Nume Curling Wand 
Another product I've heard so much about. 5 wands in one? Yes please! Right now I have a Revlon regular curling iron and I need a wand ASAP, so why not get one that has interchangable sizes?!

15. Lorac Pro Palette and the Lorac Pro Mega Palette (because I already have the 2)

I already bought the Lorac Pro 2 because it was half off on, so I'm still waiting for that in the mail, but to complete my collection and feed my obsession with palettes, these two beauties need to be mine. Wishlisted! 

16. MAC Rocky Horror Picture Show Collection Lipsticks and Liners (every single one!)

Let me just say, I aboslutely hate limited edition items because I want them all and they're only out for a certain amount of time. sure, the companies want to make their customers more intrigued with these collections, but they should really either bring them back more often or have more product so they don't run out as quickly. Anywho, these lippies are the perfect colors for Fall. GIVE ME!
17. Urban Decay's LTD palette 
This gorgeous product really made me mad! Yes, mad! First, UD comes out with the Vice 3 at $60 each. Then a week or so later they come out with this beauty that is limited edition (hence the LTD name). Not only is it limited edition, but it was only on Sephora's website (which sold out in less than 3 hours) and it was exclusive to VIB Rouge members at Sephora, which I am not. Talk about jealousy! I'm praying Ulta comes out with this baby and it's available to everyone! 

18. A New Michael Kors Purse

(Don't mind the Polka B. writing, I'm not sure why that's there). Anyway, I've had my MK purse for almost a year and I think it's time for a new one. I really want a red or a royal blue one since I'm boring and always stick with neutrals and blacks. So this beauty needs to be mine. Wishlisted!

19. A Michael Kors Watch

This is the first watch from MK that ever stole my attention and I still have yet to get my lazy butt up and get it. So until we meet, darling MK watch!

20. Every single Essie Nail Polish ever made!

I love Essies color scheme and they have a ton of colors to choose from. I need them all!

Hope you enjoyed! If you have any of these products or were inspired by this post to go out and grab any of them, let me know how you like them :)
