My MUFE Palette

I thought I'd share my Make Up For Ever palette with you. It's incomplete- still needing two more to fill the palette. I have been very slow to fill this up and meticulous about what colors I choose. At $19 US/$22 CAN, I consider these investment pieces. I do not want to end up with a color that I can't see myself ever using. So here are the eight eyeshadows that I have collected so far!

UD Naked Lipstick

I've gotta say that I'm really loving the Urban Decay products that have Naked has its name. Naked Palette, Naked eyeshadow, and now the Naked lipstick. Now I just need to get my hands on their lip pencil and lip gloss of the same name. I guess I love getting Naked. ;) Here's my swatches and review of the lipstick!

UD 24/7 Shadow Pencil Stash Swatches

This is one of Urban Decay's limited edition sets for the holidays this year. I love Christmas sets and this one is no exception! It's the 24/7 Glide-On Pencil Stash and it retails for $34 US/$41 CAN. These are .088 oz as stated on the pencils (though the outer packaging and Sephora both state it as .88 oz). While this set is LE for the holiday season, each pencil except for Juju is a permanent shade and can be bought separately.

Latest Sephora Haul!

So sorry for not updating this more during the summer! Shortly after my last entry, my husband came down with Pneumonia. A lot of my summer was spent with the hospital, doctors, and nurses. :( He's all better now, though! I'll be starting to post again and I hope that some of you will also! :D

I'm pretty happy with what I got! I also took advantage of getting the VIB hat box full of samples. That special offer is over but they often have other deals for Beauty Insiders and VIBs, so you're missing out if you order or shop at Sephora often and don't have an account with them. :)

^ everything in the box

March Favorites

I know I often say it, but this year is flying by. How is tomorrow already the start of April?! I'm starting to believe what the adults would say when I was younger about time going faster when you're older. Holy moly! :P

*Some of this isn't Sephora related, but most of it is so I decided to post it here.

The favorites from this month pretty much sums up all that I used aside from a day or two. I went for basics and gave my skin a bit of a break from heavier products.

- YSL Rouge Volupte in #2 (Sensual Silk)
- NARS Bellissima eyeshadow duo
- NARS Albatross blush (highlighter)
- NARS Laguna bronzer
- Urban Decay 24/7 eyeliner in Bourbon
- L'Oreal Voluminous mascara
- MAC MSF Natural
- Eve Pearl Salmon Concealer
- MAC Well Dressed blush

What were some of your favorites? Tell me in the comments! :)

Anniversary Haul

If there is one thing my husband has learned during our five years of marriage, it is the way to my heart. He surprised me with a few goodies off of my Sephora wishlist! :)

^VIB gift, Too Faced Naked Eye palette, Too Faced Romantic Eye palette, Sephora OPI nail polish, MUFE Tres Vichy palette, and Laura Mercier Secret Concealer. I'm actually exchanging the concealer, because it is very similar to the Eve Pearl Salmon concealer that I already own. Not sure what I might exchange it for yet! And I'm open to ideas, if you want to throw one my way. :)
