A bunch of products that I picked in past few weeks. I had been to Miami for little spring vacation. Obviously couldn't resist visiting and picking goodies from Sephora. It was HUGE!!! I loved the way they had Bronzers, Self tanners and Sunscreens on display just at the front.
Bonjour Soleil Limited Edition Summer Bronzing Wardrobe:
OMG!!! This looked so so stunning at the display! I must admit that I got sucked into the sleek packaging, beautiful tanned legs and Miami Mood! Not to mention the stunning colors!! I am not a bronzer person and I love whatever I have in my little bronzer collection. Too Faced metal packaging is very pretty and I couldn't resist buying!
Coconut Watercolor Cheek Gelée:
These tiny glass jars!! I hate those bins that hold mini and travel size products at the check out. Most of these are below $20 and before you know you have 3-4 products added in the basket. I have tried MAC Just a Pinch Gel Blush and I love it. These too are really good, because I have already used them. More details on these and the swatches later.
Peony Brightening Night Treatment Mask:
I have been obsessed with masks lately, especially the overnight kinds. The FRESH Peony Brightening Night Treatment Mask was pretty new in the market when I picked it a couple of weeks ago. I have used it just two times and so far so good. Will use it a few more times before I pass a verdict on it.
Before starting my trip, I had picked a NARS Illuminator in the color HOT SAND from Nordstrom. I love the way this shade looks on my tanned skin (now).
Also grabbed a Kiehl's Super Fluid UV Defense SPF 50+ from the Kiehl's Friends and Family Sale. I love my tried and trusted SHISEIDO Ultimate Sun Protection Lotion+ Broad Spectrum SPF 50+ For Face/Body, but I had tried a sample of Kiehl's one in the past and I really wanted to buy a full size one.
(Note to companies: Be generous with samples!!)
There are a couple of other stuff that I picked, but I just need to photograph them. So for now everything has been tried and I am glad none of these were disappointing. Reviews and swatches to come soon.
