Nars Madly Blush | I've wanted this forever-- last year it was sold out everywhere, and I was convinced it was going to be discontinued so I kind of forgot about it. When I swatched it on my hand I was a little worried because there is SO MUCH shimmer! I did a double-take, and thought maybe they sent me the wrong shade, but on the cheeks the shimmer isn't an issue and the color is perfect, and warms up my face in the best way possible. Up until recently I was pretty much sticking to just bronzer and highlight and now I've switched back to just blush.
GlamGlow Thirstymud Hydrating Mask | Oh this stuff smells so good! My skin is every kind of sensitive so I'm really cautious about what I put on my face. Right away I liked that this mask can be left on over night-- to me that means, if I forget to rinse it off right away it's not going to start burning my skin or something else awful. The directions say you can just wipe off the mask with a towel and rub it into the skin if you don't want to rinse off with water. I can't speak to the effectiveness yet as I've only used it one time, but it felt really comfortable on the skin and left my face feeling soft and hydrated.
Sephora Crystal Nail File & Instant Polish Remover | Both of these were recommendations from Nadia! At first I was convinced the nail polish remover couldn't work that well, but it really makes for the easiest nail polish removal! My nails haven't been long enough to need a file (yet), but it comes in a nice little case & I can't wait to try it out.
Formula X Base Coat | Despite the little how to section on the Sephora website suggesting you wear this stuff alone to strengthen your nails, I do not recommend that. It peeled like crazy, and I was hoping it was just because I didn't put an actual polish over it. I haven't tried it again yet, but if it does the same thing it will probably be going back.
Living Proof Dry Shampoo | This was a last minute addition to my cart after reading Heather's post. As much as I love the Batiste dry shampoos sometimes the scent is just too strong and I don't like using it for that reason. I have to say that this dry shampoo has the best (and lightest) scent of any dry shampoo I've tried! As far as its effectiveness, it definitely works, though the verdict is still out, as to whether it's better than what you can find at the drugstore.
Shiseido Eyelash Curler | My current lash curler is old and pretty gross, so I figured it was time for a new one. I think my old one was Tweezerman, and to be honest this one seems exactly the same, so I have no complaints, but it doesn't do anything crazy or amazing.
Replica Beach Walk & Lazy Sunday Morning Rollerball | I had planned on purchasing lazy sunday morning, but then I saw this little duo and thought it was too good of a deal to pass up while I had 20% off. I already have a beach walk rollerball, but I use it all of the time, so I definitely don't mind having a backup. The staying power of both of these scents are amazing on top of how good they smell!
