February 2015 Sephora Haul!

Hey guys!  Today I wanted to share with you a few things I ordered from Sephora recently.  I actually placed 2 separate orders, but I put it all together in one blog post.  A few of these things (lip products mainly) I bought with Spring and Summer in mind.  Anyways, I absolutely LOVE this stuff so let's get to it!

My favorite lip color in the whole world is actually orange.  I never in a million years would've imagined that would end up being what I enjoy the most, but it just is.  I have plenty nude and pink lip liners, but I didn't have anything that would actually fall in the coral/orange category.  This Always Sharp one from Smashbox is perfect!  Instead of buying a dozen cheap ones here and there, I went ahead and bought one really nice one that I know I will enjoy.  I've never purchased this particular brand of lip liner and it is so nice!  If you are not familiar with these, as you twist the lid on it sharpens your lip liner for you.  So when you go to put on your lip liner it is always at a perfect point ready to go.  Genius.

These lipsticks are one of my favorite formulas, and they are perfect for keeping in your purse or bag because they are housed in their own mirrored compact.  I always keep the shade "Gemma" in my bag, which is just a beautiful, neutral, rosy mauve.  Gipsy is described as a deep tangerine, and it is absolutely BEAUTIFUL.  I can't even get enough of this.  Orange lip products make my heart skip a beat, I love them soooooooooooo much!!!

These lipsticks are in a heavy, very substantial bullet type compact, and as you open them the mirror opens as the lipstick slides out.  So glamorous.

This might possibly be my favorite lipstick of life.  If you like orange lipsticks, omgsh, give Gipsy a try.  I don't think you'll be disappointed!

Kind of staying on that coral/orange trend, I wanted a light shimmery lip gloss that would be perfect to pair with my orange lipsticks.  This absolutely fits the bill.  Corail Lingot is a gorgeous warm peach with golden shimmer.  Not glitter, the shimmer in this is so fine you do not feel it and it just glistens on your lips.  This will be great over top of any lipstick, especially those brighter, harder to wear shades.

Even though reviews of these Stila "Eyes Are the Window" shadow palettes tend to be all over the place, I had to give this particular one a try.  I am soooooooooo glad I did!

There are 4 palettes in this collection (Mind, Body, Spirit, and Soul).  I read so many reviews on these and watched several YouTube videos about them as well.  Marlena from Makeup Geek says her favorite palette of life is the all-matte Mind palette.  I love me some matte shadows, but I also love shimmer ones as well as that is what I prefer to use as my lid shade.  The Soul palette looked like it was custom made for me.  Beautiful shimmery shades for your lid (including the cult favorite Kitten shade), perfect mid-tone crease colors, and then deep dark shades to really smoke things out.

The packaging is just beautiful.

The names of the 12 shades are on the back of the palette.

The formula of the matte shades is a little drier than the ones in my other Stila palettes, but they still blend out effortlessly.  The shimmery shades in my palette are soft and buttery and are of the same quality as those in my other palettes.  I absolutely love this!  The Soul palette seemed to have some of the highest reviews and I can totally see why.  It's a great palette.

If you follow my blog then you know I love the Physician's Formula Eye Booster Pen eyeliner, but since that is drying up I thought I would give this a try because everybody talks about how great it is.  Can't wait to try it!

Just your basic black liquid eyeliner with a brush tip applicator.

I love the Tokyomilk perfumes (especially the one that smells like pipe tobacco).  I hadn't ever tried this particular scent so I thought I would give it a whirl with this affordable (limited edition) set.  I do like this scent, you definitely notice the vanilla-bean notes in it.  Tokyomilk fragrances are delicious, but I definitely prefer the regular one the most.

I picked up one 100pt perk, the Philosophy Renewed Hope in a Jar Eye Cream.  I have used the Hope in a Jar face cream, but haven't ever used the eye cream.  I look forward to trying this.

I had a coupon code for some Estee Lauder samples (VIBLAUDER).

The sample kit had a generously sized Take It Away makeup remover lotion and Advanced Night Repair serum, and it also had some lipstick samples in it as well.

I picked the same samples for both of my orders!

The Dior Nude Air Nude Healthy Glow Ultra-Fluid Serum Foundation with sunscreen.  Luckily the color shade was Medium Beige which should work for me.

The Fresh Rose Face Mask that I have used before and totally love.

And then I also got a couple of the Look Fabulous Not Frozen Needles No More Wrinkle Relaxer.  I'm kind of anxious to see how this works.  That's some pretty substantial claims it's got there!

Alright guys, that's it for now!  Hope you enjoyed and I hope this gives you some ideas on things you might want to try!  Have a great day!
