Mini Sephora/Drugstore Haul

How was your weekend?  I had a nice little Saturday planned...I was going to go to the mall with a friend and get my hair cut.  However, when taking my dog out in the morning I had a complete wipeout.  There was still a lot of ice on the ground and I slipped, flew up into the air and landed right on my back.  Seriously?  It's the end of April.  Why the heck is there ice on the roads??  Ugh.  

So anyway, I had to adjust my plans but was still able to make it to the mall on Sunday.  I didn't get any clothes because I'll be going shopping with my mom this coming weekend and will no doubt get some then.  But, I did stop at Sephora.  

I broke down and got the smallest container of the Kate Somerville Exfolikate that they had.  It was STILL $22 but as I said here it's pretty awesome.  I also picked up a Makeup Forever concealer and a Tarte highlighter pen (along with cashing in some of my points to get their "cult favorite" 500 point gift).  Have you ever noticed how scary the lights around their big makeup mirrors are?  Seriously, maybe not the best strategy when trying to sell expensive makeup.  Just sayin.

I also stopped at the drugs store on the way home and picked up one of the Maybelline Color Tattoos (tough as taupe), a Revlon Lip Butter (raspberry pie) and the Revlon Color Stay (light) pressed powder.  

The Color Tattoo is a really nice matte taupe color.  The formula seems really nice and easily blendable.    I'm sure I'll be picking up some of the other colors at some point.

I also love Revlon's Lip Butters.  They are a lot nicer (in my opinion) than regular lipsticks because they aren't as cake-y.  They are more like a really pigmented chapstick type thing.  Think of it as a lipstick with training wheels.  

What are some of your favorite products for spring?  Anyone have any good buys over the weekend?


  1. I've always wanted to try Kate Sommerville's tanning products, have you ever tried them? It is a good sign that you like her other products.

  2. I haven't tried the tanning products but yeah, I do really like her face scrub! Also, when I was in Sephora one of the workers was talking with a client for a long time about the Kate Somerville products -- so I'm assuming she was saying good things!

  3. I adore tough as taupe colour tattoo. Such a great all over shade and a really good base for a smokey eye.


Thank you for the comment! I really appreciate it :)
