Happy Hump Day peeps!
I finally ordered some goodies from Sephora to redeem my birthday freebie and my 500 point gift. I am so excited to try out all of the products I got and will definitely do a follow-up post about how everything works out!
My main item in this purchase was a new hair dryer. I have always used Target dryers in the past, and I felt it was finally time to step it up and buy a big girl hair dryer. I ordered the online exclusive Aria Beauty for Sephora Collection Blast: Infrared Hair Dryer. It’s a sparkling pink and rubberized. I am so particular about my hair tools but I look forward to using this. It came with two different sized diffusers as well!
For my birthday gift, I chose the GlamGlow kit containing a sample size of the Supermud Clearing Treatment and Glowstarter Mega Illuminating Moisturizer. I currently use Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturzier in Nude but I am looking to try something new!
Obviously, I chose the tarte Rainforest of the Sea Discovery Set for my 500 freebie. It contains Lights, Camera, Lashes 4-in-1 Mascara, Color Splash Lipstick in Beach Babe, Water Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 in Light Neutral (my shade), Light-Medium Honey, Medium Honey, and Tan Sand, Deep Dive Cleansing Gel , and last but not least, the Marine Boosting Mist Mini. I am definitely most excited to try out all of these tarte products since they are very clean and natural products. Tarte also does not test on animals which is awesome! 🙂
This was not included in my order but I did buy it yesterday. I picked up the limited edition tarte Rainforest of the Sea Highlighting Eyeshadow Palette vol. III. I have been using the Urban Decay Naked2 palette ever since it came out (I’ve gone through a couple) but have decided to switch it up with my eyeshadow as well. I plan on keeping my Naked2 palette for a little bit longer because I still have a bit of shadow left for some of my favorite colors!
I’m not sure how, but I qualified for a free sample of philosophy Renewed Hope in a Jar moisturizer. I went through a phase in high school where I had maybe 3 philosophy body washes at any given time. So I am really excited to have received this sample!
As for my three free samples with my purchase, the first was another tarte Rainforest of the Sea product – the Aquacealer Concealer in Light, Light-Medium Neutral, Medium-Tan Honey, and Deep. I’m thinking that Light-Medium Neutral will be a good match for my skin tone!
The second was stila Color Balm Lipstick in Aubrey, Jessie, and Elyssa. These are amazing colors so I am eager to try them and find a favorite!
Last, I originally ordered a Laura Mercier Flawless Fusion Ultra-Longwear Foundation sample set but I think they were out of it because I received Tatcha Deep Polish exfoliant sample instead. It is a rice enzyme powder and the instructions say to add water and massage onto face – it creates a foam. So I am very intrigued to try this!
Overall, I really lucked out with so many awesome new products to try! Do you use any of the products I got and love (or hate) them? Share your feedback in the comment section below!
