Sephora Shopping List!

Hello Lovelies!

FINALLY. MY MALL IS GETTING A SEPHORA! I think it is mainly because the UPS man is tired of dropping Sephora packages at my house and went to our mall and yelled "GIVE THIS GIRL A SEPHORA".

As soon as I found out, a couple months ago, I screamed and then the next day I had to work I put in for a personal day for when Sephora opens. Of course, my co-workers probably think I'm crazy but I also got two of my friends to take the day off too!

So I have put together a nice little wish shopping list! It was much longer, however, I bought a lot during their recent VIB sale.

1. Benefit Magic Ink: This stuff is serious! I used it a few months ago and I have been wanting to repurchase! My UD 24/7 Liquid Liner is nearing its last line!


2. A New Light Powder: I want to check out this one from Bare Minerals, but I've hit pan on all my powders...time for a new one!


3. LORAC Matte Baked Blushes: Oh, how I've heard such amazing things about these blushes! I want to see them all!!


4. Dior's New Coral Lip Glow: The exact name of this product has escaped my head for the moment, but considering how freaking much I love the original pink Lip Glow, this seems like it'll be hot for summer!


5. Anastasia Brow Pencil in "Strawburn": ARE WE SERIOUS? FINALLY A BROW PENCIL FOR THE STRAWBERRY-BLONDES?! Yes, pleaaaaaaaaaaase!


So that's it! I'm really hoping our store will do something fun! I hear that at some openings they give away products and gift cards! Ohh that'd be amazeballz. Have you ever been to a Sephora opening?

Island Michael Kors: Very Bali

Hello Lovelies!

When you think island, what comes to mind? A gorgeous sunset, swaying palm trees, clear blue water? I'd like to think of my favorite island, Manhattan. Which only has two of the aforementioned island stereotypes, a beautiful sunset. However, I don't think there is that large of a market to create perfumes that smell like the City.

But Michael Kors knows there is an ever growing market for light, sexy Summer scents that make you think you're on an exotic island. And I LOVE it!

Michael Kors has released a new scent for the season, Island Michael Kors Very Bali. Very Bali is a light fragrance that is sexy and beachy. Since I am horrible at scent descriptions, I'll share what MK says about the fragrance:

"Introducing Island Michael Kors Very Bali .A new destination in fragrance. Escape to the ultimate glamorous destination and lose yourself in rose petals, jasmine and hints of earthy pample wood. Radiant. Soft. Sexy."

Yes, yes and yes! While I don't know what pample wood is, or what it smells like, I will agree it does have a subtle warm woodsy note.

And I've noticed I'm not the only one who enjoys this scent! I've had quite a few people ask me what I was wearing! Which is always nice to know that you smell good.

Right now this perfume comes in one size, which 1.7 oz and retails for $65. It also appears to be the only item in the line, hopefully it will come in more sizes and variations (rollerball, shower gel and lotion would be a nice set!).

I would definitely recommend getting a little spritz of this scent, next time you're at the perfume counter!



What's your favorite summer scent?

Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment in Coral

Hello Lovelies!

Like the new digs? Well same digs, just redone a little ;)

During the Sephora Chic Week sale, I picked up a few goodies including this lip balm from Fresh! I'm a HUGE fan of the Fresh Sugar Lip Treatments! I'm on my second original tube and have the color Passion!

So when I saw that Fresh released a lip balm in coral, which is very on trend for the season, I had to order!

The Fresh Lip Treatments are ultra moisturizing, lemon scented, SPF 15 lip conditioners. I use the original one, or the clear, every night before bed and my lips feel amazing and very moisturized. My lips feel very plump and full while wearing these. Which might be because of fatty acids in the balm, it doesn't tingle but just makes lips feel smooth and plump.

I'd say the coral color is very, very easy to wear. It's not bright, but is a soft orangey-peach-coral. I really love pairing this with a bronzey eye, it compliments the look without being POW CORAL!

Overall, I love this! But $22.50 price tag? Its pricey! However I'm constantly reaching for one of these balms, they protect from the sun, add a kiss of color and leave lips soft and plump! Love!

Available at Sephora stores,, and wherever else you can find Fresh products.
