'A little Sephora Haulage'...

Moving day is finally here! As I mentioned before, the boyfriend and I are moving states, AGAIN. As a result I will be without internet for a while :( So I leave you now with some Sephora goodies!

I decided it was about time to make a little dent in my Sephora Wish List =) Not to mention I have been out of my HG cuticle cream for quite a while now, so it was needed!

Sephora Haul

Read on for the breakdown!

Illamasqua Powder Blusher in Nymph
Illamasqua Powder Blusher in Nymph... Bubble gum pink! This is like a more pigmented MAC Well Dressed, which is one of my favorite blushers. Not quite as cool toned though. I love this blush and know it will be one of my most used from now on! =) I swatched it below next to my other pink Illamasqua blusher, Chased.

Make Up For Ever Diamond Powder in Smoky 15
Make Up For Ever Diamond Powder in Smoky 15... Taupe gray shimmer. Let me start by saying this is NOT what I was expecting. First let's just look at the color. It is bronze with some blue/green specks in it. When I first opened this I thought they had given me the wrong thing! Second, the texture is very gritty and it isn't at all a powder. More just small pieces of glitter. I was expecting the glitter to be much more finely milled, because of the "powder" in the name!
I'm rather disappointed. I didn't know what I was getting myself into! haha

left to right: Illamasqua Nail Varnish in Poke, Sephora by OPI Top Coat in Spark-tacular!
Illamasqua Nail Varnish in Poke... Bright violet purple/ shimmer finish. This is a new color, and looks so pretty! You can't tell much in the picture but it shimmers a silver shade. I have yet to try this one out, but I can't wait!   (check out my other favorite Illamasqua polish here!)

Sephora by OPI Top Coat in Spark-tacular!... I have been lusting over a Deborah Lippmann polish in, Birthday Cake...? Not sure on the name, but this polish reminded me of it. At half the price I snatched it right up!

Dior Creme Apricot Fortifying Cream for Nails
Dior Creme Apricot Fortifying Cream for Nails... This is my HG (holy grail!) multipurpose nail cream. I put this on my cuticles before I go to bed to get rid of the dry skin around my nails! You only need a very little amount. I also use it at night on my lips because it is SO hydrating. I can still feel it on my lips when I wake up in the morning! I really am just obsessed with this product. It's a bit pricey at $23.50 for 0.35 oz, but it lasts forever so I think it's worth it =)

I also purchased the Boscia Pore Purifying Black Strips for the boyfriend. I hear they work best after you take a shower and your pores are open. So the next time I get a chance to corner him in the bathroom after a shower, he's trying them out. Whether he like it or not! haha      =)

So, have you tried any of these products??



  1. Ooooh wow, those nail polishes look amazing, I wish we had a Sephora in the uk :(

  2. i have thee MUFE diamond powder too.. It's pretty on but you're right, not as finely milled as I thought..
