The day before yesterday, my Mum returned home after visiting my sister in NYC for 3 weeks. On their last day together they went shopping and asked if I’d like for them to get me anything.
Sephora Fragrance Sampler pack - you get 10 sample size fragrances from some lovely brands (Gucci, Marc Jacobs, Prada etc) Once you decide which one you enjoy the most, you present the included voucher, redeemable for a full size bottle of your choice. My sister will do this for me and post the bottle back to Aus. A pretty good deal for $55 (US) and especially convenient because I wasn’t present to pick what fragrance I like best!
Sephora Moonshadow baked palette - 10 shimmering eye shadows, in neutral-ish shades. This looks like a fantastic palette to use for night time, as well as 2 shades perfect for highlighting. There’s a beautiful dark gold I can’t wait to try.
Sephora Rouge Cream Lipstick - I chose the shade ‘Crush’, a deep reddish plum. I haven’t got any similar colours in my collection, so I thought why not. It’s quite a moisturising formula, which can easily be blended, lightened or darkened with other lip colours.
CoverGirl LashBlast Volume Mascara - Mum picked this up for me as just a cheapy. I’ve really liked a mascara from the same brand in the past, so I am curious. She chose this in black brown, which is lighter/softer for me, as I always get mascaras in blackest black; this will be good for day time.
Clinique Soothing Cleanser - An extra gentle cleanser which is a part of the ‘Redness Solutions’ line. Helps calm irritation and redness, perfect for sensitive skin. Clinique is almost double the price here in Australia, so it’s nice to be able to try something new and not worry about the money.
Mum also ducked up to Vermont to visit some friends, and the Ben & Jerry’s factory. She picked up that grey t-shirt, as well as the amazing knowledge that the office workers there are allowed to take their dogs to work, and get high on the job. Explains all the creative flavours.
