|Sephora haul: Urban Decay Naked 3 palette; Tarte Amazonian clay 12-hour blushes "Tipsy" & "Exposed"; |
Formula X for Sephora "The System".
Recently a lovely friend of mine, Amy, went on a trip to New York and very kindly said she would pick up some things for me at Sephora. I could hardly contain my excitement and spent far too many hours devising my wish list and refining it. I changed my mind on what products I would most like to get so many times. Sephora makes choosing so difficult for someone so indecisive as myself. In then end I decided upon products which were hard to get a hold of in Australia and/or significantly cheaper at US recommended retail price. My final wish list was as follows:
Urban Decay Naked 3 palette; Tarte Amazonian clay 12-hour blushes in Tipsy and Exposed; Formula X for Sephora The System; and the Lorac Pro palette.
Unfortunately the Lorac Pro palette was nigh on impossible to find. Sephora and Ulta were sold out/no longer stocking it in stores and apparently now only available online. Sigh. But I cannot be disappointed because I was presented with a black and white Sephora bag and inside, oh boy, were my lusted treasures.
Urban Decay Naked 3 palette - I've swatched it and used it once so far. I like it a lot and it's a unique addition to my collection. It complements my grey-blue eyes and light-medium skin tone nicely.
Tarte Amazonian clay 12-hour blushes - I'm so pleased with the colours I chose. I've been looking for a colour like Tipsy for so long and I think would look great with a tan and fresh-faced summer makeup. Exposed is a neutral shade which will look good with a variety of makeup looks.
Formula X for Sephora The System + Hyperactive effects top coat - this kit comes with a nail cleanser, base coat and top coat. You then get to choose any colour or topcoat to slot into the packaging. I used the system last night and whilst I can't yet comment on the longevity, my manicure is very shiny and I'm pleased with the initial result. The topcoat I chose gives an opalescent effect and is very pretty.
Thank you so much Amy for picking these items up for me!
