Sephora mini haul and July Play! box

Good Tuesday, lovelies! I hope everyone is doing well on this fine day! It has been quite rainy here, and this weather is KILLER for those of us with chronic pain and/or conditions. I don’t know what it is about the barometer falling, but the storms yesterday and Sunday sent me into a horrible flare. None of my prescription opiates were working and I spiked a fever, which is pretty common. I am not fully recovered yet, today, so I thought I would do an easy and fun post!

I am the worst when it comes to online shopping. Having access to apps makes it even worse hahaha I get emails from Sephora and Ulta daily, telling me all the cool things they have on sale. And I am weak!! Weak, I say! This is a mini haul, because I actually practiced some self restraint. It was tough … have you guys seen the new Sephora Pro palettes???? It took every bit of self control not to put one of those suckers in my cart, but at $68 a piece, they’ll just have to wait. But they are soooo prettyyyyy …

 

I am pretty sure I’ve talked about the Clinique pep-start pods before, and the Sephora sleeping masks. I wouldn’t recommend the pep-start wipes for eye makeup. I have found (the hard way) that you have to use a little too much force if you are wearing waterproof products. They are great for face makeup, though. And those sleeping masks … y’all … incredible products and well worth the money. There is way more than one use in those little pods. I have also found the Sephora brand lip balm to be some of the best I have ever used on my lips. They seem to be perpetually on sale at $4, which makes them very much worth trying out. The formula is very smooth and buttery, and delivers lasting hydration. I have not used the blotting papers before, so I am looking forward to trying them out. Nor have I used the Caudalie facial mist, but I know the brand’s reputation is impeccable, and I read grape water is great for soothing rosacea. Win-win! Finally, the freebies!! I am excited to try out the eye makeup wipes. I’m not gonna lie … I’m a lazy girl  sometimes and I just want to lie on my couch instead of taking off my makeup. With these, coupled with the Clinique pep-start pods, I can do just that hahahaha! I am unfamiliar with the Jo Malone perfume, so I’m also excited to try that out, and a girl can never have enough Juliette has a gun 🙂

On to July’s Play! box …

 

Isn’t that a cute little bag? I am most excited about the Peter Thomas Roth mask. I use a facial mist from that brand (same line, in fact) that is AWESOME (and always sold out at Sephora … that’s how amazing it is)! Also very excited about the perfume. I spritzed a bit on a piece of paper and it is divine! Sephora Play! runs about $10. They do charge tax, so it does vary based on where you live.

Do you guys sub to any subscription boxes? I also do Ipsy and Birchbox. What are your thoughts on sub boxes? Love ’em or hate ’em, or just confused by them? Lemme know!

    1. I do feel better today, thanks. And thanks for the compliment! I have to say, I’m quite jealous you get to shop at Primark!! I think there are only two in the US, and none of them are anywhere near me.

  1. I love the Sephora Pro Palletes! But, as you stated, a tad pricey for right now. I tend to wear makeup less in the summer… so it will have to wait! Tarte and Kat Von D have some cute palettes as well!

    I enjoy getting the scoop from you on masks! Helps me narrow down what I want to try!

    Hope you are feeling better! 😘

    1. I am feeling better, thanks! And thanks for the compliment 😊 glad I can help! I missed the Jaclyn Hill restock AGAIN this morning, so those pro palettes are looking more attractive by the minute haha!
