I've noticed that quite a few of my previous posts are about things I've purchased at Sephora either with the Friends & Family sale, VIB sale or this following one: VIB gift card. Craziness.
Aside being amazing by carrying so many different brands, they have an exceptional return policy and quite a few sales and freebies. Does not help my addiction at all. This is awful.
However, I ended up purchasing more things *sigh*
I got a $20 coupon from Sephora by email ($20 off $50), and I got seduced by the good deal, so I gave in and purchased a Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush (in Blissful) and YSL Rouge Volupté Lipstick (in Peach Passion).
The blush packaging is super slick and tiny, which seems like a rip for a $25 blush, but from what I saw when I swatched it, it's incredibly pigmented, so I don't expect to run through this that quickly:
The design is nice, but I assume I will flatten it out quickly enough:
See what I mean about pigmentation? Blissful has a somewhat peachy side to it, which I was excited about, since I don't have any peachy blushes yet. So pretty:
Have I mentioned that I am addicted to YSL? Their packaging is to die for, even the shiny outside box :3 shiny~
And just look at the lipstick packaging itself >.< Definitely feels anything but cheap and makes me feel like a real lady:
There's a good amount of product in there as well, just a few dabs will get full coverage on the lips, therefore I expect this to last forever:
The color actually makes me think that I may have subconsciously picked two peachy items on purpose, which I hadn't. MAGIC. Not really, but hey~
I've been wearing the YSL lipstick for a few hours at this point and it's super creamy. I did end up eating and transferring the lipstick to my fork, but I am not going to judge it harshly just yet. I'm not used to such creamy lipsticks, so it will take a bit to get used to.
As for blush, the swatch is still on my hand, even though I tried to rub it off a bit. I am not wearing any makeup aside from that, so I will wait to judge the blush when I decide to make myself up and be all pretty <3
