I’m trying to patiently wait for my products from the Sephora VIB sale (tick tock).
In the meantime, I wanted to share the mascaras I picked up at the Nordies Mascara Madness event. It was pure madness at my local Nordies; my SA said she made 400 sales by 3pm – ka-ching. I called the day before to make sure I would get the items I wanted as the items tend to sell out. Buy 2, get 1 free tends to make folks go a little cray cray!
This one is pic heavy, no words necessary.
|What’s in my Bag?|
|All my goodies|
|Threw in Chanel Boy Rouge Allure on impulse|
|YSL Babydoll, Chanel Le Volume (my HG) and Guerlain MaxiLash Faux Cils|
|My sample goodies|
My SA said she was grateful that I called in advance as it made her life easier, and she threw in some samples to show her appreciation, without me having to ask. I’ve been dying to try the HydraMax Beauty Cream & HydraMax Beauty Serum so I got all excited too – thanks Judy:)
So, with regards to Chanel Boy… I have to admit that it’s not love. I know there’s a lot of buzz on the blogosphere about this classic, but I found it a little too blue-pink for my skin tone. I find that it’s bordering on the verge of pale “crack-head lips” on my NW43 skin. I tried to layer it over the MAC Cork lip liner but it completely disappeared into my lips and looked like lip balm, albeit a bloody expensive lip balm. Lesson learned, must minimize these impulse buys.
|Chanel Boy Rouge Allure – too pale, makes me look like I’m dying|
|YSL Nude in Private, I was hoping the Chanel would look more peachy like this|

Well, please tell me you saved yourself some money and were in on the Nordies event! Must save our pennies where we can. As at the end of the day, it’s just make-up right:)
What did you pick up recently? Do you like it? Will you keep it?
Thanks for stopping by and stay blessed.
