SEPHORA VIB HAUL + REVIEW

Okay, so the semi-annual Sephora VIB sale has come and gone but the time has come to haul and review all the goodies. The Internet is overflowing with videos and posts about the sale so it’s only right I share my grabs. Share below what you just HAD to get!!

OUAI Matte Pomade … So I got bangs and needed a pomade to style them so they aren’t just a chunk of hair covering my forehead. This pomade is nice because its very thick and creates a wispy look while still staying matte.

Philosophy Purity … I will always purchase this during the sale because it’s a restock, BEST MAKEUP REMOVER EVER. Very gentle on the skin and eyes, you need to try this.

Bare Minerals Liquid Lip … I really never wear lipstick but I felt like this was necessary to buy because it’s a nice pinky/nude colour. It takes a while to dry down but I don’t mind, it looks good creamy. Colour is ‘Slay’.

First Aid Beauty Mask … Peel-off masks are very therapeutic and I needed a new one. My skin feels smooth and clean after and you don’t need to put on a thick layer so the bottle lasts longer, holla for the dolla.

Clinique Fresh Pressed … I heard some good reviews on this product for acne scarred skin so I figured I should buy it during the sale. Sooo, this little bottle is only supposed to last for 7 days and you mix it with your moisturizer am and pm. I haven’t noticed a difference really but we shall see, results take time!

Beauty Blender Cleaner … I am a bad reviewer because I actually haven’t tried this product yet but I am just going to assume that it works well because my current method of cleaning my beauty blender is not working well (current method consists of squeezing the baby soap filled sponge until it looks clean).

NARS Primer … I’m waiting to run out of my current primer to start using this, but just by swatching it feels like it will even out skin texture and fill in pores while creating a good base for makeup, stay tuned.

Fresh Lip Balm … This was completely and utterly an impulse buy because I was watching MannyMUA’s snapchat and he said that this was an amazing lip balm and that it smells good so there it is, I’m sold. It legit smells so good, like caramel popcorn mixed with a caramel swirl candle. Has a bit of a shine on the lips but so far so good in the moisturizing dpt. In case you’re wondering, it doesn’t taste like anything 😦

TOP 5 spring jackets

Spring is a time where you need a few different types of jackets because the weather is so unpredictable. It could be sunny and hot on a Monday and then pouring rain Tuesday. Spring is definitely the season of jackets. The more the merrier, as they say! Or, it is just an excuse to go shopping and buy a new jacket. Today, I wanted to share my top 5 jackets for Spring and what they’re great for/how to style them.

#1. The Bomber

The bomber jacket is my fav for Spring because you can literally wear it with everything and it will work. Pair it with some blue skinnies, a tee and sneakers.

#2. The Trench

Wearing a trench just makes you feel fancy and classy, am I right ladies? This option is great if you wear more business/business casual outfits on a daily basis. I love the light grey colour for the Spring, it will brighten up any outfit.

#3. The Unique Jacket

I called this one the unique jacket because there is always trends for the Spring season and this is where you can go ahead and just buy what is trendy. Suede and fringe are a huge hit this season and it’s a great style to wear as a statement piece.

#4. The Leather Jacket

Classic. I do not feel the need to explain why a leather jacket is necessary for Spring. I do like the longer, motto style jackets because they give off a cooler vibe, compared to the cropped, no buckle styles.

#5. The Denim Jacket

I love how there are so many different styles of denim jackets, cropped, oversized, ripped, bleached. The options are endless, and it is finally cool to wear denim on denim again! This jacket is great to wear with jeans, leggings, joggers for a more casual vibe.
