Here’s a combined Trash Stash post for the last 2 months of 2017:
I initially felt that my steam dwindled a bit toward the end of the year to finish up products but once I started to list them out, I found that I did finish quite a few items in the last 2 months. I decided to do a big post instead of separating into 2 posts, so grab a cup of hot tea. ☕
When I look at it all together like this, I think I got a bit carried away with makeup hauling…
But when you pick up a little bit here, a little bit there, it doesn’t seem like it’s that much! 😉 I wasn’t able to go on actual Boxing Day to shop but many of the deals are available for the whole month of January – basically when stores sell out of stuff is when the sales end! 😛
Here we go again. It’s almost time for everyone to lose their minds because it’s Sephora VIB sale! I managed to achieve VIB Rouge status last year on my No-Buy ( 😆 ) so I get early access and 20% off, starting November 4th until the 7th. Then the VIB level will have 20% off from Nov 11-14th. It’s the highest discount level that Sephora offers in the whole year, so it’s the best time to stock up!
I made a stop at Sephora recently to refamiliarize myself with that store… I feel like I’m drifting away from Sephora lately!
I’ve never done a MOTD post on the blog since I don’t actually post my face, it makes it somewhat challenging. But through the magic of product photos, swatches, illustration, and imagination – I think I can pull this off. 😛
This is the makeup that I wore on Wednesday. It was a day of meetings for me, so I have to look as “polished” as possible since it’s a lot of face time with both internal and external people. Wednesdays are not my favourite days of the week – hump day indeed!
I prioritized this review since this concealer is launching this month here in Canada.
The official name of the concealer is Too Faced Born This Way Naturally Radiant Concealer, and is an extension to the Born This Way Foundation. I was able to purchase this in advance of the launch date during a pre-launch event. I’ve been wearing this concealer for the past 2 weeks in various conditions and trying different methods. Here are my thoughts.
I saw this topic on Styled by Lauren so I wanted to do my own list too. Since so many of you are listing your Sephora VIB sale shopping lists, I’ll kind of join in with this post even though I won’t be partaking in the VIB sale this time around (*sob*). Next year I’ll be able to indulge in getting these items from brands I want to try more of:
The obvious choice. Since this brand’s launch (and debut in Canada in June this year), it’s been a hot brand in the makeup world. I got my grubby little hands on a lipstick via a gift card for my birthday, and I’m itching to try more from the line, namely the Colour Chameleon eye shadow pencil in Dark Pearl, an eye shadow quad, and possibly a blusher.
This brand launched at Sephora this year and I’ve been anxious to try something from it. The first thing I have to get my paws on is their Relevée Lash Curler. I’ve perused the displays and it appears that most of the products are made in Japan – the line does have a Japanese aesthetic to it. I want to try their Artistique Blushes and Eyeshadows – which all fit into custom palettes, I’m a sucker for custom palettes!
