So what started as a tennis game quickly turned into a visit to Sephora where my friend Sarah and I tried almost everything in the store. We were cleaning our hands off nonstop. It was a lot of fun and it was even better than normal because it was like an hour before closing and no one else was in the store. So I'll list the products that I would and would not buy and then tell you why. If you already have some of the products that I'm going to talk about and feel differently than I do then I'm sorry the products that I liked didn't work for you and I'm glad the ones that I didn't like did work for you. Tell me about your favorites from Sephora in the comment box below!
Urban Decay Urban Ammo Eye Palette
I liked this palette because it has a wide array of colors that have such good color payoff and they are so smooth. My particular favorite color is 'Last Call'
Urban Decay Naked2
This the perfect palette for everyday looks, the colors are so beautiful and they look great together.
Urban Decay Eyeshadow in 'Scratch'
The new formula of the Urban Decay shadows is literally insane it's the softest, most smooth eyeshadow I have ever felt and you get amazing color payoff with a light swipe across the pan.
Tarte SmolderEYES Amazonian Clay Waterproof Liner in 'Fig'
This pencil is so smooth. I can't attest to the waterproof part but I don't usually care about waterproof things anyways. I would use this as an allover shadow stick as well as an eye liner.
Tarte Eye Couture Day-To-Night Eye Palette
This is another palette that has a lot of good shadows in it. My favorite is the light purple color on the bottom row, it is so beautiful, it has blue and gold and silver shimmers in it.
Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush
I love this color and it is really vibrant on the skin.
Sephora+Pantone Universe Shades of Nature Eye Shadow Palette
This palette has every color that you would ever need and more! The color payoff is good.
Sephora Collection Double Contouring Cream Blush in 'Poppy Pink'
I love cream blush because the edges just melt into your skin so it looks more natural. This color is really pretty and you can build on it so you can have a very light flush or a more bright one.
Sephora Collection Double Contouring Cream Blush in 'Flashy Fuchsia'
I know that this color looks crazy but it is so pretty if you put it on with a light hand.
Philosophy Falling in Love Fragrance 2oz Eau de Toilette Spray
I love the smell of this, it smells like cotton candy but in a sophisticated way.
Philosophy Mangos and Cream Duo
I happened to smell this on our way out of the store and I'm glad that I did because it smells so delicious.
Sephora by OPI Betsey Johnson Nail Color in 'It's My Pink!'
This is a scented nail polish and it smells like Betsey Johnson's perfume 'Too Too' which is amazing.
Sephora by OPI Jewelry Top Coat in 'Indi-Go with the Flow'
Sarah had a mint color on her nails and I put this blue glitter over it and it looked really good.
Make Up For Ever Lab Shine Lip Gloss in 'Star Collection-S2'
This is a very nice lip gloss. It feels good on the lips and it smells like peaches!
Make Up For Ever Eyeshadow in 'Orange Coral Matte 5'
Their eyeshadows are so pigmented and vibrant and this one caught my eye right away and it didn't disappoint.
Make Up For Ever Rouge Artist Intense in '40'
I love orange lipstick and this one was opaque and just gorgeous.
Kat Von D Painted Love Lipstick in 'Homegirl'
This is the perfect ox blood color which is very in for fall.
Evian Mineral Water Spray
This was so refreshing when I sprayed it on my face and it left my makeup right where it was.
Benefit Cosmetics Velvet Eyeshadow in 'Leggy'
This shadow was so nice and I absolutely love the packaging.
Benefit Cosmetics Cha Cha Tint
This is a perfect peachy pink for lips or cheeks and it stays until you want to take it off.
Sephora Collection Double Contouring Cream Blush in 'Coral Flush'
This blush is so sparkly that it is really unwearable.
Sephora by OPI It's Real 18K Gold Top Coat
Okay so this color is pretty but it's $30 which is just ridiculous. It looks like any other gold flecked nail polish so it's not worth the price.
Hello Kitty Hello Pretty Palette
I love Hello Kitty but their shadows are powdery and don't give very much color payoff.
Charlotte Ronson 3 X A Charm Luminizer, Blush, Bronzer
I like the luminizer and the blush but the bronzer is so orange and unnatural which is too bad because this would be a great item to have in my makeup collection.
Benefit Cosmetics Benetint
I'm not sure if I used it right but it was really watery and there wasn't very much color pay off at all.
