accidental haul

This wasn't supposed to happen. 

I've been trying to use bronzer more often and have been using it to contour. I decided to buy the NARS Contour Blush in Olympia. I've read a lot of great reviews about it. I just need to perfect my contouring techniques. 

Also the NARS eyeshadow duo in Kalahari has been tempting me for a long long time. Finally decided on getting it! I really should have picked it up during the recent sale. 

Dior Fluidstick in Tiny Pink. Beautiful pink. I hope I like the consistency. I think this color is exclusive to Sephora. 

Sephora brand lipsticks in Seduce and Love Spell. 

Finally! My Sephora had the VIB Rouge polish back in stock. And I can't believe this is my first red nail polish ever. 

I also have an unheard of number points. They never really have any gifts I'm interested in. But this one seems nice. It has an NARS eyeshadow size of Deep Throat blush, which is one of my favorites so it will be great for travel. A sample size of a satin lip pencil and a sample size of their black eyeliner which in excited to try. And a little sample of the eyeshadow primer which I already use and love. 

It's been a whole since I've bought any color products from NARS. I'm not really devoted to the brand like a lot of oeople are. 

I am also on the fence on getting the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in Dim Infusion. I really like the one I have in Didfued Heat. And I think Dim Infusion would be a great everyday color. 

Maybe next time...

April Empties

April was my attempt to use my collection of samples I have been hoarding. I made a dent in it but still have a ton left. 

None of them were great. I already have a full size of the Glam Glow mask and the Fresh Soy face cleanser, so they were nothing new. 

And I still have a ton of perfume samples left. I love the Jo Malone Nectarine Blossom & Honey. I could buy a full size of that! And I already have the original Narciso Rodriguez so the L'Eau version was nice to try. Marc Jacobs Dot was just ok for me. 

Staples. Can't seem to live with out them. The Pear and Snow ones were half  used from the holidays so I just finished them up. 

Brocato Peppermint Scrub. Liked it, but moved into a different brand. 
Dove deorerant. My fav brand, I just usually rotate scents. This was the pomegranate one. 
B&BW hand sanitizer. Another staple. The scents don't usually matter to me but this one was really nice, Bella Flora. 
Real Techniques makeup sponge. Not a Beauty Blender dupe in my eyes. The shape is weird and it's just too dense and stiff. 
Fresh Sugar Face Polish. Love this stuff. Already bought a replacement. It's a mask/scrub. It leaves my skin so smooth and radiant looking. 
Dolce & Gabanna The One. Loved this scent when I first got it but now I'm over it and in glad to see it empty. 

Powder, mascaras, concealers, etc. nothing exceptional here. 

Cotton squares. I hate these. I bought these a while back when I couldn't find cotton rounds ANYWHERE!!! Finally finished them up. 

I really dislike the Glade Wax Melts. They only last for one melt and they don't have a good scent throw. I have a few more packs I'm working my way through. The Wal Mart brand is much better and a bit cheaper. 

B&BW candles. Party Dress was my favorite. Meet Me In Tahiti was good. Raspberry Peach Macroon is awesome! This candle quit burning about half way through. I'm now using the wax in my warmer. 

That is all for now. I went through my makeup and threw away a bunch of old cream products. I need to go through again and decide on what I don't use and try to do another blog sale. 

Have a good weekend!
