Fall Haul: Sephora

Since renewing my Flash Shipping last month, I’ve started to check things off  from my Sephora list. I’ve made 2 purchases so far, and plan to make a few more before the year’s end.

 

Part 1:

It’s Skin Cookie & Body Ice Cream, Mint – This is one of those items that I constantly sampled every time I paid the store a visit. This body cream has a light texture and contains “cookie chips” that melt when massaged into skin. This comes in 3 scents, but I always gravitated towards the mint. It smells only faintly of mint, and I liked how soft my hands felt after using it.

Closer look of the product. Looks like mint chip ice cream!

The Blend 07, White Tea – Yet another item I loved to test out at the store. This one sat in my list for months. The Blend by Fred Segal is a collection of fragrance oils, ranging from floral, to fresh, to spicy, that can be used alone or mixed together for a customized scent. I didn’t see myself liking the White Tea so much since it has a spicy note. But from the list on the Sephora site, it’s only one, which is why it wasn’t overpowering for me. It’s hard for me to not smell my wrists after putting it on. Long story short, I eventually had to own it.

Urban Decay Vice Lipstick, Speedball – This is one of the Sephora exclusive shades from the collection. I loved how the vivid purple shade looked when I swatched it. Not too sure how it’ll look  when I get around to wearing it, but I figure it would be pretty bad ass.

Part 2:

Benefit Cheekathon Blush & Bronzer Palette – I had originally planned on purchasing this from Ulta with my rewards points, but to my dismay it was discontinued at the store and online to make way for their current products. Thankfully it was still available with Sephora. I don’t see myself purchasing another blush any time soon since this has a nice range of shades. Swatching these didn’t do much justice since all these shades are sheer and easy to build if you’d like more color pay off.

I’m actually glad I didn’t do too much damage with these purchases. But with the holidays around the corner, that can easily change (heheh!).  Hoping to get some use out of all these items before I move on to my next purchase.

    Oh man, I’d love having Sephora Flash in Canada.
    That It’s Skin body lotion looks edible!
    That Benefit blush palette looks great – I already have Dallas and Rockateur though (love both colours). I’ve been eyeing Hoola since people rave about it so much. Might have to get it…

      I’ve had this on the wish list for so long I thought I’d never buy it. I like that all the shades are easy to layer and blend.
