I’m not exactly sure if blog posts count as ‘hauls’ or if only YouTube videos count, but here goes! I haven’t updated this site in quite some time due to a general lack of time. I did some shopping only at Sephora today after watching a video from one of my only favorite YouTube personalities Chloe Morello. She has been featuring the Benefit Gimme Brow in a few of her videos and I decided to order it in. I traditionally do the pencil/powder method, but this gel type product looks interesting.
Next up was a refill on one of my favorite foundations – Shiseido Radiant Lifting Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 17. There’s a little story behind how I stumbled across this. Last summer, my dear sweet Granny was looking for some new makeup, so I took her down to the local Dillard’s counter. After about an hour of the makeup artist beautifying her face, she came home with 2-3 products from Shiseido. Unfortunately, my grandma passed away only 2 months later and I had no idea that would be our last shopping trip together. My Granny, frugal as she was, had not yet opened this bottle of foundation because she hadn’t run out of the one she was previously using. I ended up bringing most of her cosmetics home, and knowing we shared the same skin tone, this foundation worked perfectly for my face.
I would say this is medium-full coverage and lasts all day – even in the heat. It has a beautiful finish and has become probably the best foundation I’ve ever used. My previous bottle lasted about 9 months, so even though pricey, it goes a long way.
The rest of these products were free with my order. The three free samples I chose for the day were:
- Cartier La Panthere 1.6 oz Eau de Parfum Spray
- Smashbox Full Exposure Palette
- NEST Dahlia & Vines Eau de Parfum Spray
Also, for kicks, I decided to use 100 of my Beauty Insider Points for a mini-size NARS Orgasm Lip Gloss
I hope spring is treating you all well so far!
