Sephora VIB Haul-iday! Part 1 ft. Makeup Products | #Blogmas Day 2

My Sephora haul from the recent VIB sale is a massive one and so it'll be split into two posts - one with makeup (this one) and the other will be with skincare products + fragrance. This sale got me to Rouge status and I don't know how I feel about that... 

My main focus for this haul in terms of makeup was to get some new bronzers and face products. Besides one eye product that I've been wanting for a year, I think I did a pretty good job!

Review & Swatches: Pony Effect Customizing Lip Palette | #Blogmas Day 1

My first #Blogmas post!

As previously mentioned in other blog posts, I'm a fan of Pony Effect and Pony Makeup. Fortunately for me, I'm also a Memebox Ambassador and was sent the Pony Effect Customizing Lip Palette* for free to test out and play with. It's a 10 pan lip palette that features a handy thumb insert, a metal plate for mixing, and a pretty good mirror. There's also a mini double ended tool that has a lip brush and a silicone spatula type product to help scoop up product from the pans. There is 11 grams / 0.38 ounces of product and can be found on Memebox for $30 if you're in the US. I believe the $30 price is when it's on a promotion, but it's currently out of stock and not on the website for me to double check.

Stocking Up For (Minor Makeup) Emergencies

Being a beauty blogger, I do have a larger than normal makeup collection. It's not often I finish makeup products and it's even more rare when I buy backups just in case. I'm generally pretty good with limited edition products too since I've admitted to myself that I need to calm down. With that being said, I do keep backups of some staples that I know I would be in trouble if I run out!

An Ode To Orange

In the past year, I've kind of been collecting orangey eye and face products. It's become one of my favorite type of shades to wear besides warm browns / bronzes. While I do have more orangey products, the ones in this post have become some hard favorites and are always at my main desk where I do my makeup.

Favorites: October 2016!

Can you tell that I'm moving into fall/winter?

I feel like I wore a lot of different products in October, but only these six products popped out when I was thinking about my favorites. I do remember orange stuff too, but most of those products were already mentioned in favorites recently and I think I'm also just thinking about pumpkins.

Review & Swatches: NARS x Sarah Moon Mind Game Velvet Lip Glide Set

The NARS x Sarah Moon Mind Game Velvet Lip Glide Set contains 6 minis of their newest lip product - the Velvet Lip Glides! NARS claims that the Velvet Lip Glides are highly saturated lip product like lipstick with the feel and smoothness of a gloss. They're also supposed to have a semi-matte / velvet finish thats long wearing and comfortable. In this set, there are 3 permanent colors (Bound, Unspeakable, and Toy) and 3 limited edition colors (No. 675, Chez Claude, and Plato's). Each mini contains 0.12 ounces / 3.4 mL of product and the set retails for $45. It's currently sold out online, but I was able to find it in stores.
