Why Do We Call It Makeup When We Believe?

November 8, 2010

Right before I left for Hong Kong, I treated myself to a significant Sephora online order- most of which I still need to experiment with. Here are the chosen ones-

(From left to right)

* Smashbox/Eye Wish Palette (housed in the gold box)

* Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Zero (my main eyeliner for the past two years)

* Dior Ultra-Smoothing High Impact Eyeshadow in Argentic #056

* Lancome Drama Instant Full Body Volume Mascara in Excessive Black

* Bare Escentuals High Shine Eyecolor in Patina

* Smashbox Limitless Eye Liner in Peacock

* Issey Miyake L’Eau d’Issey 3.4 oz Eue de Toilette Spray

* Clinique Stay-Matte Sheer Pressed Powder in Stay Golden (I recently tried other powders but have returned to this one- the one I’ve been wearing for as long as I’ve worn makeup)

* Make Up For Ever Rouge Artist Intense in #5 Matte Violette Pink

* Versace Bright Crystal 3 oz Eau de Toilette Spray (my sister, Bec, piggybacked on my order- this is her main perfume)

* Givenchy Rouge Interdit Satin Lipstick in Pink Whisper #24

(All of the skin care products listed below comprise the Recharge Your Skin bonus package- I cashed in my 500 points to get these for free)

* Dr. Brandt Pores No More Anti-Aging Mattifying Lotion

* Korres Quercetin & Oak Anti-Aging Anti-Wrinkle Firming Face Serum

* DDF Restoring Night Serum

* StriVectin-SD Intensive Concentrate for Stretch Marks & Wrinkles

    Ah, I like the title to this post! Smashbox eyeshadows are so amazing. They have really strong pigments. That Urban Decay eye pencil is my favorite! It smudges beautifully. You seriously got an amazing Sephora haul.
