No, seriously, this is what beauty shopping feels like for me: I float outside of my body, when I’m, like, at Sephora (or any beauty store really), and next thing I know, I’ve got a bag filled with beauty booty in my hand, and I’m walking out the door, and I have no idea what just happened! It’s like I go into a fugue state or something.
So yeah. That’s more or less what went down when I grabbed a few beauty bits and bobs last weekend, including some things from the Sephora VIB sale.
It started with the Viseart Neutral Matte Eyeshadow Palette, OMG!
I’ve been lusting after this thing for FOREVER. It was sold out online but the store had several palettes on the shelf, which I took as a fortuitous sign from the beauty gods.
I grabbed one, walked around with it for 45 minutes, and then next thing ya know, BAM. I’m strolling out of Sephora to get frozen yogurt with my friend Marisol, and the palette’s in my hot little hand.
I also grabbed a couple lash curlers. After reading all the comments in last week’s Lust List, I couldn’t decide between the Shiseido or the Surratt, so I got them both. I figure if there’s one that I don’t love as much as the other, I can keep it around as a backup. #makeuphoarderissues
Until I can figure out how to successfully dye my own hair without completely mucking it up, I’ll always and forever keep a supply of Rita Hazan Root-Touch Up Concealer on hand.
I couldn’t find it on the shelf at first and panicked, but then I asked one of the associates to please look in the little drawer underneath the display, and inside there were a few extras tucked away. Never hurts to ask, right?
Um, so… the whole out-of-body beauty experience didn’t stop there. The next day, I grabbed a couple of Smith & Cult Nail Polishes from Space NK, The Bee Side and Bitter Buddhist, and a tube of R+Co High Dive, because I completely cleaned out the salsa tub-sized sample that my friend Alis hooked me up with, and now I’m totally and completely addicted.
Have you grabbed any new beauty goodies lately?
