Last night I had a couple hours to kill and I took advantage of the 60 degrees temps and walked over to Sephora. Here is my mini haul.
Philosophy Eternal Grace perfume $15 and Betsy Johnson for Sephora OPI Too Too scented nail polish in It's My Pink. $9.50 (Not pictured is First Aid Beauty face wash and cream for Dave. You think you have sensitive skin? Try being tactile Celiac (also called DH). Poor thing) I couldn't find a link to the small size perfume just the large one below but it does exist!
I got the Buxom gloss and the Caudaline samples for free.
I have mentioned before my love for almost all Philosophy perfumes. I am rather particular with my scents but something about their line just hits a home run with me. This one I had sprayed on my hand last week while in a store and forgot about it. Later in the day Dave kept saying he liked how something smelled. Took me forever to remember I had sprayed the scent. I got the small size. It is hard to describe it. I am TERRIBLE at knowing scent notes. It is clean, slightly musk, tish of citrus and a soft green smell. Don't ask what a soft green smell is because I have no idea but it just popped in my head.
I saw this in the Sephora email so I thought I'd check it out. I had a CK1 "inspired" polish in 1994 that I only just threw away like a year ago. I was OBSESSED with it. This one is very lightly scented only when it is totally dry. One thing to note with scented polish is if you want the full scent you can't use a top coat. Polish without a fast dry top coat takes forever to dry. It got all smudged and dinged because I am so trained that my nails are dry in under 5 minutes. It is a gorgeous color. It is Betsy's signature pink and the scent is very faint. It is supposed to smell like her perfume Too Too. I admit I have never smelled it but the polish reminds me of a faint whiff of Angel perfume. (one of my mom's favorites. I get teary eyed when I smell it because it is so MOM. She lives too far away)
The Buxom gloss in Sugar.
This was a gift for cashing in points. I have tried this gloss before when I was attacked by people on the street doing lip makeovers a couple years ago. It is a plumping gloss. I really like how it looks on. It makes me feel fancy. Maybe it is the name BUXOM, the packaging or the fact that it ever so slightly tingles. That is the plumper. I don't know if my lips look plumper but I dig it anyways. If you don't like the tingle this is not a gloss for you. Oh it is made by the Bare Essentials people.
(It took all my power not to potatoshop the glasses mark on my nose. My face is SOOC here. I will tell you MAC mineralize powder is amazing because my skin is soooo red and broken out right now and the powder makes light bounce off without making it sparkly, like some light diffusers do. I have been using the same powder for 1.5 years and I am just getting down to the pan)
Any plans for the weekend?
We are going to a huge family party hopefully tomorrow. Dave has been sick all week though so it depends on how he is feeling tomorrow.
