New from Sephora

01. Soap and Glory Hand Food– I’ve been out of hand cream for about a month, but I was using a sample in the meantime. Since I made a couple trips to Sephora while my sister was here, I figured I better restock this favorite of mine.

02. NARS Audacious Lipstick in Charlotte– I was on the hunt for some new fall lip colors and I swatched several of them when I was in the store. Originally I was drawn to the Bite Beauty Matte Cream Lip Crayon in Brandy. I liked it when I swatched it on the back of my hand, but not so much when I actually put it on my lips. I did fall in love with this new NARS lipstick though. The color is absolutely perfect for fall and the formula is deliciously creamy. Also, the packaging is super sleek and I love the magnetic closure. I really hesitated about paying $32 for a lipstick (this is the most expensive one I’ve bought so far!), but in the end I decided to put back a couple of the other things I was going to get and treat myself to this lipstick instead. I haven’t worn it out yet, so I’ll report back when I know how it wears throughout the day.

03. Elizabeth and James Nirvana White Rollerball– I haven’t bought a perfume in ages. I had so many samples stocked up, so I was just going through those. Now I’ve used up all the samples I actually like, so I wanted to get a new scent without splurging on a full bottle. I’ve been eyeing this perfume for a few months now and every time I went into Sephora I would smell both the white and the black version. I wasn’t sure which one I liked better, but my sister preferred the white version on me. I busted it out earlier this week and every time I caught a whiff of the scent, I was quite pleased. I like the rollerball aspect too- it makes it easy to tote around if I want to reapply it later in the day.

Tell me: What beauty products have you purchased recently?

    LOVe the picture of your products. The Elizabeth and James is my new FAVORITE perfume. I was running low on my perfumes so and decided to pop into Sephora a couple of weeks ago. After going through and testing a bunch the Elizabeth & James White was the one! It has that perfect musk and floral scent. I the soap and glory foot cream. It totally works wonders esp since I work out a lot.


    • Thanks Heather! I love the E&J perfume, I’m wearing it right now :) I thought it was such a funny coincidence that we both bought it on the same day (great minds!). I’ve never tried the Soap & Glory food cream, but if it’s as nice as the Hand Food, then I need to.

    I picked up Charlotte recently too and am obsessed! My new favorite shade for fall. I also have that rollerball, it’s so nice! Sephora does have 100 pt perks of the black one online, if you’d like to scoop that one up for mixing/wearing alone! I couldn’t decide either, and that’s what I wound up doing. Enjoy your new products!

    • Charlotte is so pretty! I really love some of the other colors as well, so I may get another eventually (eek!). Ahh, that’s good to know about the Sephora perk- thanks for telling me!

  • I am obsessed with Nars lipsticks, seriously, they are awesome!

    • This is my first one and now I know what I was missing out on!

  • SHE Jenmarie

    I think I remember you talking about the Soap and Glory Hand Food and I have always wanted to try it! Their packaging is so cute too!

    • Yes, I did a beauty fave post about the hand food before :) Their packaging is adorable! I want to try some of their other products as well.

    I love Soap and Glory Hand Food too. And I have been all about rollerball perfumes lately. My skin has been acting crazy so I have been restraining from using any new products lately but I did recently stock up on several nail polishes for fall.

    • I’m loving the rollerball. It’s the perfect size to carry around. Ooo, which nail polishes did you get?

      • Jessica

        Deborah Lippmann Pretty Vacant and NARS in both Seize the Night and Ecume. Now I’m really wanting a pretty nude shade.

        • All of those colors are so nice. I love the pictures of Seize the Night that I saw online!

  • Lorena

    Last product I bought was a blue eyeliner from Avon… yeah really classy :)

    • I bought a navy eyeliner recently and I really like it! I’m so used to black, that the navy felt like a big change :)

  • Katherine

    The last thing I bought was Neutragena night cream as I was looking for a nice moisturing one – this one is actually quite good and the smell isn’t off putting like some creams :)

    • That sounds nice :) I’m picky about scents because certain ones really irritate my allergies!
