Sephora Beauty Haul


Sephora Beauty Haul


Who doesn't love a good beauty splurge once in a while? After working at Nordstrom and Sephora and knowing how many top-tier products they have, it's always just a matter of time before my next binge.

Lately, I've experimented with this Dior Pro Eyeliner; it has a creamy texture and is easy to apply, but don't extend it too much or it might break off because it's so thin. On the flip side, a foolproof beauty fix is EOS Lip Balm. I don't know why I waited so long to try it, because it tastes wonderful and covers the whole lip.

I swear by the classic Anastasia Eyebrow Pencil because the application lasts all day, the pencil lasts for months and it's so easy to use. And Too Faced's Born This Way foundation is super smooth and makes me look like I'm glowing! Last but not least, Philosophy Live Joyously moisturizer locks in moisture and smells like heaven.
