Sephora, Target, & TJ Maxx Haul…Oops

As I mentioned recently, I made my mama proud and bumped up a reward level at Sephora to VIB Rouge. Oh geez. Below is the order that helped me to get there, dun dun dun. Damn you, Sephora, for sucking me in with that $20 off $50 coupon! It’s okay really; I don’t mind. Please, send me coupons all the time.

Sephora TJ Maxx Target Haul

SensatioNail Gel Polish in Babydoll Pink

My mom got me the SensatioNail gel manicure starter kit last year for Christmas. Honestly, I am not that in love with it because my polish chipped in two days and for the amount of work that goes into a gel manicure? No ma’am. Since Christmas rolled around again, I figured I would test it out with a new, light color (that was mega on sale at Target). Fingers crossed it works out better this time.

Urban Decay Naked 3 Eyeshadow Palette

Is anyone else sick and tired of people talking about this? I will say this one thing: I’m not sure how I feel about this palette. I love 1&2 so much, but I’m just not certain that the rose gold shades in the palette are for me… Also, I am a little pissed that the “add-on” was a cardboard sampling of the eyeshadow primer potions. Umm…no. I have to stop before I go on a rampage.

NARS Nail Polish in Disco Inferno

This polish was on sale for only $5 so of course I had to get it. This is my first NARS polish so I will do a nail polish porn post soon to let you know all about it. Hopefully it will fare differently from its similar-looking cousin, Essie’s For the Twill of It.

Lavanila Healthy Deodorant in Pure Vanilla

Whoa, this stuff smells…awful. It’s okay in the container, but once I put it on, this does not mix with my body chemistry. I am trying to be a bit more natural with the deodorants I choose, but dang this is not working. Thankfully, I purchased the mini size so I’m not out too much money.

Boscia Konjac Cleansing Sponge

I was so intrigued by this natural plant sponge that is hard in its natural state but gets nice and squishy once wet. So far I’m not blown away by it, but I will let you know if that changes.

Clinique Acne Solutions Cleansing Foam

This was a freebie with my Sephora order, so I’m not quite sure why I put it in the picture – oops! I have not used this yet and will probably give it away because I’m extremely happy with my skin care routine.

Shiseido Purifying Cleansing Foam

I got a nice Shiseido sample kit and fell in love with the foaming cleanser. I saw the full-size bottle while browsing at TJ Maxx and just had to have it. This works extremely well with my Clarisonic, although it does have a slight perfumed scent. Love it!

Shiseido Instant Eye & Lip Makeup Remover 

I’m nearly out of my beloved Lancome Bi-Facil makeup remover and figured I would give this a try. I quite like Shiseido as a brand; the French and the Asians are skin care geniuses.

That’s all for now!

  1. I’ve got the same sensational colour! I have the red carpet manicure kit, basically the same idea and I find that the colour lasts much longer than sensational. I agree it’s a bit disappointing, which is why I only have the one colour. Xx
