Well I didn't have a receipt but Sephora, the store with the best return policy on earth, still let me return it and get store credit. Yippeeee!!
So...I had a little over $200 in store credit to spend at Sephora. It's like Christmas came early!!! *cue church music*
I was so excited, but thought long and hard about what I wanted to buy. Lol. I took this chance to get some stuff I typically wouldn't want to spend that much money on.
No, I didn't spend all $200 at once. Still have like... $10 left hahahah
Sighhh $200 really can't get you all that much at Sephora -_- such a sad reality
I went lipstick crazy. I've been dying to try out the new Dior Addict lipsticks since they came out. But at $28 each...I only looked lovingly at them as I passed LOL
I also got another YSL ROUGE VOLUPTÉ because I love the other one that I got a long time ago.
Just the packaging alone for these is enough to make me drool *_*
I picked up the Dior Addict in Tokyo. These are $28 each (superrr expensive!)
These lipsticks are sheer and super moisturizing. The color is definitely buildable though.
Tokyo is a Sephora exclusive (another reason to make me want it more hehe) and described as a "sheer peachy pink."
My camera failed to capture it's true color but I did my best to adjust the picture. -_-
I also picked up Tulle, which is described as a "light beige."
But to be honest...in the tube, it kind of looks just like Tokyo >.<
I do love this shade though, it's a great "my lips but better" shade.
Here's the swatches to compare the two. Tulle is more beige but only slightly. On the lips, Tokyo is more pink. I'm not sure if I should keep both since they are so similar.
Perhaps I should keep one & exchange the other?? Which one should I keep then?? HELP!
I also got the YSL ROUGE VOLUPTÉ in #2 Sensual Silk (I had no idea a lipstick could sound so sexual lmao). These are $34 each (holy shit! yay for store credit!)
It's described as a "creamy pinkish beige"
I must note that these descriptions are kind of crap. I also have #1 Nude Beige, which is described as a "creamy neutral beige" but I compared the two, and #1 is way more pink than #2. Who writes these descriptions?!
#2 is a great warm nude color that doesn't make me look anemic when I wear it. Yay! The formula is soooo creamy & smooth. But there's that signature YSL weird fruity/old lady scent but I don't really mind.
Picked up two blushes. I've never tried anything from Illamasqua before so I got one of their blushes to try. Also picked up a NARS blush. =]
I got an Illamasqua Powder Blusher in Lover. This was $24.
I love the shape of these containers. And how there's a window so you can see the shade of what you're using. But it's kind of bulky for travel though.
Lover is described as a "vibrant apricot" and is matte. It wasn't chalky when I swatched it in the store. I've been really into peachy/orange blushes lately. Hopefully this works on me!
I got a NARS Blush in Deep Throat. This was $27.
This is described as a "peach with shimmer."
It's very similar to Orgasm, which I already own. I like that Deep Throat is less shimmery than Orgasm though.
I'm on the fence about whether I really need this or not...If you guys have suggestions for other NARS blushes, throw them my way!
Next is something that I totally squealed over when I saw. teeheeee
I picked up the tokidoki Royal Pride Hercolino Palette. This is $28 and limited edition (another reason that I HAD to get it ^o^)
OHMAHGAWD this is super adorable. Look at all the cute characters!
The palette comes with 6 shadows. They were pretty pigmented when I quickly swatched them in store.
I still need to rethink if this is a must-keep. Most of the shades in this palette, I have. I'd keep it just to stare at how cute it is...I doubt I'd use it all that much. I think I've used my other tokidoki palettes like a total of 5x >.<
But I think this is a pretty good deal. For $28 you get 6 shadows, nearly the same price as a NARS blush...
I caved and got this ridiculously adorable Royal Pride Compact Mirror. This was $8.
It's kinda cheaply made though...mine is sorta defective because it doesn't close all the way. I'll see if they are all like that or if I just picked up a bad one -_-
Oh herro dere, fwend! \^o^/
If there's any products from Sephora that are worth trying, please feel free to share! XD
I've had this song stuck in my head since I've heard it hehe. It's called Busan Lady.
Rain was my first KPop obsession everrr! This man's the shit at dancing, makes you go "Omo!" HAHA
I even went to his concert in Las Vegas over a year ago & spazzed next to a bunch of Japanese ahjummas hahahaha damn, those ahjummas took crazy to a whole other level!
Apparently Rain wrote this song about a woman he happened to see in Busan. What a lucky lucky lady ^_~
