Yes, yes, I know it’s already December! I’m still catching up and I definitely wanted to share you my Birthday treats, even if it was in the month of November!
I wasn’t celebrating on my actual birth day, (I never really do), plus I’m also on the budget, however I still manage to treat myself with plenty-o treasures::
Sephora, I love you so much! When you are a Beauty Insider or a VIB (Very Important Beauty Insider ♕) you will have some benefits, including free gifts on your special month. This year, I received 2 Nars lip pencils. Shade Cruella and Rikugien. Knowing myself, these are going to last forever.. I already tried on Cruella, which is the bolder color and I have to tell you, it looks velvety, hydrating and just the perfect shade. Thank you Nars! ❤
Nars is actually Shiseido-owned cosmetics and skin care company. Just a little tip from me: if you are still looking for the perfect makeup remover, look no further! Shiseido has the BEST makeup remover. Something about their formula that takes every piece of makeup off and doesn’t irritate my eyes at all! Believe me, I’ve tried many expensive, and drug store products, but this one actually worth every penny.
Also picked this L’Occitane Holiday Package. I’ve actually never purchased from this company before, but did receive a sample of products on the airplane when I was traveling to Asia before. I know this exact package is already out of stock at Sephora, but you can have similar package here or here. You can also check out their official site to find more goods. So far I like their products and the scent is delicious!
Because I ordered over $25 I was able to choose from 3 sample bags, and I selected the “Playful Prep” clutch. Actually Sephora has something fun and different every week that you can choose from. Bellow I pictured just some of the products that came in the bag::
My very first Lancome product. I have never purchased from Lancome before.
A Nars mascara.
A Sephora gloss (which I loved right away after trying).
An UD Setting Spray. This will be the first time trying out a setting spray.
And a Glamglow Cleanser. I also got hair oil, lip balm, perfume and the beautiful clutch. Again, I am on a budget, but if you spend over $50, your shipping is free. Oh, and I also received a ton of samples as well. This was such a fun and smart way of getting something useful for myself. I recommend you always look for those special sales or offers. And you know me, I travel and therefore I adore sample size products.
Also, changing the subject a bit, I got the best present, ever, which was an invitation to the hottest magic/illusion show of our time::
I’ve seen David a year ago, and the show was fantastic (although I’m still missing the beautiful women and the romantic sketches from his performances), but the show (hard to believe) is actually better from last year! Somehow he always finds a way to make it tighter, more precise and original. Every moment is worked out to a perfection and I do recommend you to check out his work when you are in Vegas. XO
