Weekend vlog #27 for my 27th birthday:

Did you guys take advantage of this killer Victoria’s Secret deal.  It’s going on until tomorrow!  Buy a sports bra, get yoga pants for free!

Also, my birthday present pearl bracelet is from Kiel James Patrick – go check it out!

And yes, I’m on an anime kick!  Any suggestion like Yamada-Kun and the 7 Witches would be much appreciated, plus– where can I watch more Pretty Cure?!

Post-Christmas Sephora Trip

Hello, hello!  I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas or whatever holiday you spent for the winter season.  Since I was such a good girl this year, Santa brought me some cold, hard cash.  I promptly took to Sephora to spend some of it.  Here’s what I got:

We’re going clockwise from the 12-spot, which is actually the order I picked these things up!

[1] Tartelette In Bloom | I’ve been searching Sephora for the palette for weeks!  Turns out, all I needed to do was ask.  I never did pick up the original Tartelette palette, though the thought had crossed my mind.  When I saw this baby, however, I knew I needed it.  Tartelette offers all matte shades and this one has a nicer mix– even I need a little shimmer to complete my shadow.  I love the range of colors here and they’re all extremely wearable!

[2] Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Lolita 2 | I’ve been eyeing this formulation for a long, long time.  I’ve had Vampira in my hand before, but never quite made it to checkout.  I covet Lolita, the most popular shade that is always, always sold out in stores.  Lolita 2 is a beautiful shade– a slightly spicy, rusty pink that I think is exactly what suits me.  There are a bunch of other shades I’m interested in, but it all starts here with Lolita 2!  If I find its predecessor, I’ll pick that up too.

[3] BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector in Moonstone | I’ve always thought that my damaged skin can’t handle a lot of highlight, but hey, the flaws are there and people are going to see them.  I’m embracing the world of highlight and contour and treating myself to this little compact of stardust.  After looking at it many times in stores, I knew I would eventually.  I went for the poured instead of the pressed and thought the Moonstone shade was my best match.

[4] Too Faced Soleil Matte Bronzer in Milk Chocolate | I figured if I’m getting a gorgeous new highlight, I needed a new bronzer to go with it.  I’ve had my eyes on Milk Chocolate for a while, delighted that there’s not a hint of glitter to be found.  Matte bronzer is my best friend!  I was tempted to go with the Chocolate, but I’m a pale, pale girl in the winter, so I’m sticking to the Milk Chocolate until I get some actual sun.

So now that I’ve shared my post-Christmas Sephora haul, tell me: what did you get for Christmas?!

Black Eyeliner & I are back together

Good news, everyone: after a year or so hiatus, black eyeliner & I are officially back together!  Last time I talked about eyeliner, I listed all my favorites… and they were all in brown shades!  I thought I was too pale for black.  I dabble in sapphire and navy as well.  This summer I even tried out a fun cobalt.  Last weekend, on a whim, I decided that black just made more sense with what I was wearing.  At first when I put it on, I had instant regret.  I thought I looked like Kat Von D.  This, however, was more of a dramatic look.  By the end of the day of wear, I was completely in love with it.  I’ve worn it to work three times this past week in a more subtle, work-appropriate way, and I’m back on board.

Sorry for the Selfie Saturday, but I just really loved the look.  I’m wearing Sephora liquid eyeliner and yes, I am sock-bun famous.

This is not the first time I’ve abandoned a product, only to return back to it more in love than ever.  What beauty products have you broken up with, only to have a happy reunion?
