VIB Rouge Sale: Top 10 Picks

If you shop at Sephora, you know that they have their annual sales twice a year - once in the Winter and once in the Spring. This year, they decided to throw a gift our way with a surprise Summer sale too! Try saying that 5 times fast lol.

They are having a sale which starts TODAY for Rouge members!
For VIB and Beauty Insiders, it starts on the 30th.
Below are the coupon codes for each level.

Coupon Codes:
Rouge - YESROUGE (8/24-9/3)
VIB - YESVIB (8/30-9/3)
Beauty Insider - YESINSIDER (8/30-9/3)

Honestly, there's 3 things you can go for during these sales - either take the opportunity to splurge on the pricier items, try out newer products that you've been wanting to try, or use it to restock on items you're running low on or completely out of.

With that being said, here are the items on my list for recommendations the sale:

HUDA Beauty FauxFilter Foundation($40) / Becca Skin Love Weightless Blur Foundation($44)
I have really dry skin so either of these would be really good since they are not matte. I try to stay away from matte as much as possible. I would choose HUDA if I want full coverage and Becca if I want medium coverage.
Too Faced Born This Way Concealer ($29) / Tarte Creaseless Undereye Concealer ($26)
I know you're probably sick of seeing both of these concealers at this point. But I haven't jumped on the bandwagon yet to try them out myself so now would be the time I would get at least one of them to test my opinions. If I had to choose just one, I think I would go for Born This Way just because of how much product you get. It's literally like a foundation size.
Tatcha Luminous Dewy Skin Sheet Mask ($12) / Sephora Sheet Mask in Rose ($6)
I've wanted to try the Tatcha one for awhile just never purchased it because I usually go with what I know. I've used the Sephora sheet masks plenty of times and like them but I'd want to try something new too. I know Yoli uses the Tatcha ones on Desi Perkins all the time. Definitely want to try because if this will transform my skin into Desi's skin... girrrrrrrrrrrrrllllll!
Tarte Pack Your Bags Under Eye Patches ($22)
This would be a restock. I've used them before and love them. The consistency is a jelly like feeling and they're just really cooling and hydrating on the skin.

Hourglass Veil Setting Powder ($46)
A lot of places seem to be stepping up their setting powder game and honestly, I may be getting a little over my Laura Mercier setting powder. Maybe it's time to try something new!

NAR Orgasm Afterglow Lip Balm ($28)
What I'm about to say may shock you, so prepare yourself - but I'm really not a huge fan of the Orgasm blush. It's pretty don't get me wrong, just not something I gravitate towards. I actually much rather their discontinued blush in Douceur; however, this lip balm right here looks bommmbbb. Sign me up.

Watermelon Pink Glow Moisturizer Mini ($21)
I can't remember which YouTuber it was, but I saw them raving about this and the packaging and color is just so cute and reminds me of a watermelon (obviously). But they have a mini size now which I love when I'm trying out new products to see if I like them or not.

I'd love to hear what you're planning on getting or what you've already purchased! Leave it in the comments below :)

Anastasia Beverly Hills Summer Waterproof Creme Color

Anastasia is releasing 6 new limited edition Summer Waterproof Crème color shades. The shades are: Barbie Pink, Ice Blue, Coral Reef, Sunset, Yellow, and Ocean. They will be available at Macy's on May 15th and they will be $18 a piece. These are supposed to be able to withstand very hot and humid temperatures which is perfect for summer. I am personally not all that interested in these, but they are definitely a good concept. If I were to get any, it would definitely be Ice Blue and Sunset. What are your thoughts? Like em, love em, hate em?

New on the Market: Drugstore & High End

Hi babes! Sorry I've been MIA lately, I've been super busy with YouTube and a bunch of other stuff. So let's just dive in to the new goodies that will be or have already released!

First up is a NYX product that will be coming out in June. SOOOOO soon! This is their new Liquid Suede lipstick. I can't imagine these being any more than $5 - $8 seeing as they're drugstore, although their prices have been increasing a lot lately. It looks like they made some beautiful neutral colors I can't wait to get my hands on that pink one!  
 Next is 6 Long Lasting 16 hour blushes by Too Faced. These have cute heart packaging and adorable names! These are a part of their Fall 2015 line so I'm not sure when these will be releasing. I'm assuming possibly in August? And do I spy their new foundation in the background?! "Born This Way" is what it is called. That should be releasing around the same time. I've never tried a Too Faced foundation so I'm excited to try that. I think I definitely want to get my hands on the Baby Love blush too! Eeeeek, I'm already starting a Fall wish list and it's not even officially Summer!
Next are the Maybelline Creamy Matte lipsticks. These have been the talk of the town all over the place. But, wait, because there's more! They are coming out with ten new shades that will be permanent! Clay Crush looks beautiful for Spring! OMG. I'm not sure if these are out already or not, but check your local drugstores and Ulta's because they may be sneaking onto the shelves already.
 Last is a new line from e.l.f. called Beautifully Bare which includes a blush ($4), blending brush ($6), foundation serum ($8), lash tint mascara ($4), defining mascara ($4), and a lip tint (not pictured $5) . They mentioned on their Instagram that there is a limited quantity for their launch so hurry while these last! I am definitely interested in getting the blush, foundation serum and that blending brush!

Liquid Lipsticks: Jeffree Star

Liquid lipsticks have been all the rage lately and everyone is loving them! But Jeffree Star has done it again with his unique shades! There have been sneak peeks of 3 new shades on both the Jeffree Star Cosmetics Instagram. Jawbreaker, Blue Velvet, and Abused will be releasing in June! I am loving Jawbreaker for Summertime; it is such a beautiful pastel blue. And Blue Velvet reminds me of a liquid version of Melt Cosmetics IDGAF lipstick, so gorgeous!

Maybelline Summer Collection

Maybelline has been posting their new products little by little on their Instagram and it is such a teaser! These will all be releasing in June and you can expect the price to be fairly affordable considering it is a drugstore brand. Let's hope for low, low prices! 

Baby Lips Lipgloss
These look sooooo interesting! They're supposed to be very moisturizing lipglosses. It looks like there are only these 4 colors as of now. I'm loving the bubblegum pink color!

Chaotic Lash Mascara

Color blur matte lip pencil

New Summer Shades!: Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipsticks

Stila came out with 5 new liquid lipstick shades for Summer PLUS new beautiful gold packaging. I absolutely adore the new packaging! The new colors are Rosa (bubblegum pink), Como (bright violet), Bella (bright pink), Venezia (bright red), and Almafi (coral pink). I definitely need to get my hands on Rosa because it is literally screaming my name. They are still the same price as the other Stay All Day Liquid Lipsticks ($22) and you can find these on Stila's website here.

Tarte Summer Collection

Tarte released their Summer collection which is now available at Sephora. They have so many different new products out, I don't even know where to begin! I love the color palette they chose for this collection because it screams Summertime; it's a beautiful purple and almost like a papaya color. Tarte is definitely one of my top 10 favorite brands and they never seem to disappoint. I am definitely interested in the Amazonian Lipstick in Park Ave Princess, Amazonia Clay 12-Hour Blush, Empower Flower Collectors Palette, Play it Safe Essentials Kit, and the Showstopper Palette. These companies are making my bank account HATE me lol. What catches your eye from this collection?!

Get the Glow: Hourglass and Laura Mercier

There are two products that I am absolutely dying over. One is already available and the other one is coming soon. 

The first one is by Hourglass and it is a new Ambient Lighting Bronzer. Did you say bronzer? Yes! They have their Ambient Lighting highlighters and blushes so it's only right they come out with a bronzer too. It looks beautiful and as always, beautifully packaged. Perfect timing for Spring/Summer. Their blushes and highlighters range from $35 to $45 so I expect the bronzer to be in that price range. 

The other one is already available at Sephora and it retails for $42. It is the Laura Mercier Face Illuminator Powder in Indiscretion. This is amazing and looks like it could be a dupe for Whisper of Gilt/Heat Wave but of course it is a limited edition product. Wahhhhh! *insert sad face* These limited edition makeup products are killer. 

These are both gorgeous products. What are your thoughts?

Neon Nail Polish

Yesterday at 12:30 in the morning I decided to paint my nails. Why? Pure bordeom! I always have trouble picking colors out so last night I debated between probably about a million, but I finally settled on this baby. It is a bright, almost neon pink. I know pastels are all the rage right now for Spring time, but bright colors are usually the trend for Summer and I am dying for Summer right now - warm weather, beaches, vacation, weekend trips. I just love everything that comes along with Summer. I think next time I paint my nails (which will probably be in like 2 days since they chip all the freakin time!) I will probably paint them a mint green or some other pastel color.  Do you have any nail polish color suggestions or any suggestions on making the paint last longer ?!

Where Did You Get That?!: Summer OOTD

Hi beauties! With summer sadly coming to an end in the next few days, I wanted to share some of my favorite outfits, most are work acceptable, and others just for summer fun!  

Below is my absolute FAVORITE maxi skirt from Kohl's from the Lauren Conrad collection. As you can see, one look is completely work acceptable (left) and the other is more for outside of work. The white top is from Charlotte Russe as well as the black cardigan. The black crop top is from Kohl's. If it were acceptable to wear the same thing everyday - it would definitely be this skirt. I'm obsessed!

This isn't an outfit, but I loved my jewelry this day! The neckalce has my initial "S" on it and two gems hanging off of it. I got this at Charming Charlie and the earrings I got from Wet Seal.

This sheer navy blue top looks great with white bottoms, it gives it such a contrast! Of course, a white cami underneath. The top is light and flowy which is great for summer. For an outside of work look - pair it with some white shorts. The white jeans are from American Eagle and the top is from Charlotte Russe.

A black blazer is a classic! You can pair this baby with anything and the maroon jeans are perfection! They are my favorite colored jeans. This entire look is from Charlotte Russe.

A peachy coral skirt is the perfect color for summer. I paired the same top and cardigan with this skirt as I have on in my first look. The skirt is from Wet Seal.

Here is another one of my favorite maxi skirts. I love the stripes on it! This is an easy look because all you have to do is throw on a black tanktop and tuck it in and BOOM! Done :) I wish I remembered where I got this skirt because I would go out and buy like four more! Ugh, the struggle.

This is more of an outside of work look because of the crop top, but paired with a different shirt and it could easily be work acceptable. I got the crop top and skirt at Charlotte Russe. Are you seeing a pattern yet? Charlotte Russe is BOMB DOT COM!

This hot red dress is also from Charlotte Russe - SHOCKER! With a cardigan thrown over it, it is completely work acceptable, but you can leave it off if you're going to a picnic or somewhere else and this halter top maxi dress will look fab!

These leopard shorts are fabulous and comfortable! I bought these at Body Central and they are so light and flowy - perfect for hot summer days. I paired this with a twist top strapless white shirt. Easily one of my favoirte summer looks. This is obviously not work acceptable. I used gold jewelry with this look because brown and gold together are gorg! I know you can't really see my shoes, but they have gold chains around the ankles, how freakin cute?! I got those beauties from Papaya.
Last is a look I wore for a baby shower. This is a romper from Charlotte Russe. Are you surprised?! Lol. I did a red lip with this to go with the bottoms. The high wedges I got from Tillys and they are the most comfortable things in the world! Who knew wedges could be comfortable?

I hope you beauties enjoyed seeing some of my favorite looks for the summer! What were some of your favorite looks this summer that you wore?!
