I was originally going to show you what was in my shopping cart, as I tend to put stuff in there all the time with the intention of going back, but then it dawned on me when I went to make a purchase online (I usually shop in store), that I had to move all that stuff somewhere else. So… I’m still going to show you my shopping cart, as a mini “Sephora Haul”, but I’m also going to give you a little peek at my loves list. (It’s pretty long).
Starting with my cart, I only need to purchase one thing, but the set that I wanted was only available online at this point.
It’s from the (fairly old, now) holiday collection from Shu Uemura with the art by Takeshi Murakami. I have a larger bottle of this cleansing oil, which I love, but it takes up a lot of space and it’s not nearly as cute as this bottle!
Also, I’ve been wanting their eyelash curler for a while, and it was worth the price to get them together. The cleansing oil alone was $44, and the plain eyelash curler retails for $25. Plus, a girl can never have too many cute makeup bags!
I also used some points to pick up a mini size of the SK-II Facial Treatment Essence (literally liquid gold) as well as my samples.
But since that’s not quite the most interesting purchase, I thought it would be fun to take a look at my Loves List as well.
I picked a handful of items on the list that I want to try out, but haven’t purchased yet. I can do another post on certain “Holy Grail” items in the future.
One thing that really stood out to me was the Hourglass Modernist Eyeshadow Palette. It’s completely unique in how it’s put together, as it doesn’t have individual pans for each eyeshadow colour. While I can see this bothering some people as it may make things a little more difficult to keep the individual colours separate, I think it’s beautiful and unique.
Another thing that I’ve wanted to try for a while is the Laneige Two Tone Lip Bar. While not all the colours appeal to me, I absolutely love the look of the Milk Blurring, red and white lipstick. The only thing that holds me back is the price. While I don’t have a problem paying more than this for a YSL or other high-end lipstick, I wish that the packaging was a little more special for the price.
The Shu Uemura Eye foils look really beautiful, particularly in the lighter shades. I’m not quite as drawn to the brights or the darker ones, though. They’re also pretty pricey, so I would definitely need to play with them in store before I would be able to commit to buying them, as I find some of their colour cosmetics to be a little hit or miss.
Another thing that I’ve been really interested in is the Tatcha Luminous Dewy Skin Mist. There are so many reasons I want to try this. Not only am I slightly obsessed with Japanese (and Korean) skincare, I also love that this product will help to send girls to school. There are actually a couple of products from this line that I would love to get my hands on, but this seems like a good entry purchase.
The last product I’m going to showcase here is from Kat Von D. I am pretty loyal to a few things from the brand, but haven’t actually tried any of her regular lipsticks. (The matte liquid ones are favourites, though). And… Have you seen the packaging? I’m such a sucker for two things: miniatures and cute packaging. This has both! Especially the grey and purple shades, I don’t think I would buy them full size because I’d never use them. These mini kits are a great way to try out some fun colours without the same commitment.
What have you bought lately? Or what is on your list? I’d love to know! Leave me a comment down below or tag me on social media! If you see this, share this post and tag me in it. Next week I’ll pick a name for a $15 Sephora gift card!
