I just can't get enough! Sephora goodies =)

Though I may not have been blogging the last couple weeks, I have STILL been shopping (of course!).

Sephora Goodies

Believe it or not, this order was inspired by Christina Aguilera's amazing cheek highlight in the movie Burlesque... (This isn't a great picture of it, but if you have seen the movie you know what I mean!)

'Monday's Obsession!'

I know I have been sort of MIA since moving to South Dakota, I've just been busy! In the last couple weeks I have: started a new job, applied and signed up for classes, and unpacked and organized an entire household, and so much more misc. stuff!! Ok no more excuses ;) I have blogs lined up around the corner!

I had to share my newest find and obsession with you guys IMMEDIATELY! haha I'm telling you, it was love at first sight.

Jeffrey Campbell Woven Lita Boot

Whilst browsing the UrbanOutfitters site I stumbled upon these beauties! I have lusted after the regular Jeffrey Campbell Lita's for ages. The woven detail on these new Lita's sold me in literally half of a second =)

In my cart as we speak!

What do you think of them?? I'll admit they aren't for everybody, but I can't get enough of them!

Let's talk brushes: That Sigma thing...

Yes, Sigma is ALL OVER blogger and youtube, and I for one did not buy into the hype. To be quite honest I think it was all the hype surrounding Sigma that turned me off the brand. I'm perfectly happy with my MAC brushes and I'm perfectly happy with the price of them.

Well, unfortunately MAC does not make a flat top kabuki brush for applying foundation. Wtf? MAC needs to get on that! Way back in the day they made one, which I have (the 180 I think??), but I was in desperate need of another!

So I sucked it up and ordered the darn Flat Top Synthetic Kabuki F80 from Sigma. ;) Of course I picked up a couple other brushes too just to make paying shipping worth it.

bottom to top: Sigma Tapered Blending E35, Eye Liner E05, Small Tapered Blending E45, Flat Top Synthetic Kabuki F80

Keep reading for the break-down, review, and more photos!
