Sephora & US Drugstore Haul!


Hi there! I know hauls might seem a bit of a shallow topic to talk about sometimes. But whenever I get a bunch of new makeup, I usually give a TON away as well because TBH I don’t need as much anyway. I only have one face and apply makeup once a day(usually). But nevertheless, I still want to share with you all the bits that I got for Colourpop, CVS and Sephora. Hope you enjoy it!

I won’t be talking much about the bits I picked up from Colourpop because I made a separate blog post about it previously, so if you would like to see it, link here!!

Moving on…

When it cam to Sephora, I had a few purchases in mind. I wanted something new to review, something I hadn’t heard about before. I got the Dr. Jart+ Beauty Balm in Light-Medium. I have to say, I am quite excited to give this a review on the blog(who is with me?) The Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick in Lovely was also must to get or any other amazing shade from that line. 


I needed to restock on my Rimmel London Match Perfection Concealer in 230 Fair because I use that tube of magic literally everyday. So much love for drugstore brands that have your exact skin tone for such a good price. I just had to get the L’Oreal Visible Lift Blur Foundation in 201 Light because the curious I am just had to. 

Powders are a huge necessity in my life. I use them everyday. So the geek that I am, I go through a bunch of compacts a year(about 3-4 a year). Imagine buying four high end powders a year?!?! Where the heck am I going to get all that money? That’s why I got the Maybelline Fit Me Matte and Poreless Powder in 110 Porcelain and the Physician Formula Mineral Airbrushing Pressed Powder in Creamy Natural.

Another product that I use on the daily is the Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer

And of course, I had to get something skin care related! But this time its a repurchase, the First Aid Beauty Pure Skin Face Cleanser has got to be my fave cleanser. It never broke my skin out or irritated it.

Currently | My Go To Skin Care


I know this is a bit random but I thought maybe you would like to see what I use on a (sort of) daily basis. So this is basically what I see first thing in the morning when I walk up to my bathroom sink. This isn’t all that I have but I do tend to rotate my skin car products from weeks at a time(every 3 weeks or so). These products are just a mix of what I put on when I wake up, right when I get home from work and before I head to bed.

In no particular order(because these are all my favorites):

Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Oil If you are looking for something that will totally remove your makeup in a single wipe, this will probably your match. Although I prefer to lather this in my hands and apply it all over my face. This also makes removing heavy eye makeup ten times easier.

Philosophy ‘Purity Made Simple’ I play with a bunch of cleaners, but this one has got to be the most gentle one that I have tried. I usually use this when I wake up because there isn’t much dirt to clean out of. But even if it is SO gentle, this would work perfectly for people who have sensitive skin.

Jurlique Purely Age Defying Face Firming Oil I like to use this before I head to bed about 3-4 times a week after I shower and cleanse before I head to bed. Just 4 drops of this is more than enough. A little goes a long way! I also made a review on this a few months back, link here!

DSC09975VMV Hypoallergenics Superskin 2 Monolaurin Mandelic Acid Toner for Combination Skin If I had t compare this to other toners that I have used, this has got to be the most potent! The smell and most of all the actual product! This gets out dirt you never even know you had! I made a review of this previously, link here! Since this is quite strong, I tend to use this only 3-4 times a week!

Boscia Detoxifying Black Cleanser I don’t know what fascination I have with black skincare products… This cleanser comes out as sort of a black get but when you rinse it a bit with water it looks like any normal cleanser. When I like a skincare product that does what it says and doesn’t irritate my skin, I am all for it! So going to repurchase this one!

Sick Day Beauty Survival Kit


Everyone experiences THOSE days, when we just have no motivation to go to the gym or get  any work done. During those dark, dark times, we always need a little pick me up, whether it be in food form or skin care! In my case, I prefer to be pampered with some products that I love!

Jurlique Herbal Recovery Antioxidant dsc09037Gel Mask | I have a few masks in my skincare arsenal and this has got to be the most lightweight one I have. It has a clear finish on application. My skin tends to be a bit dry when I am sick, probably because I lack some water in my system. This mask really does that trick to rehydrate my skin when I need some extra TLC.

Fresh Sugar Lip Advanced Therapy | I call this the lip rejuvenator. If you are an avid liquid lipstick user, you would probably make the most of this lip balm because it really repairs dry and chapped lips like no other. Yes, even more than Lucas Pawpaw! I tend to leave this by my bed side table to apply on my lips before I head to sleep to allow my lips to recover over night.

Jurlique Rosewater Balancing Mist | I usually use this in between my night time skin care routine once in awhile. I tend to generously spritz this all over my face before I apply any sort of cream on my face. For the most part, I like using this because the rose like scent smells really nice. And no, the rose scent is not over powering.

Josie Maran Argan Infinity Cream  | If you are into the strong(ish) argan aromatic smell, them I am positive that you will be obsessed with this cream-like oil. It give a natural boost to your skin and can also help moisturize your hair!
