Sephora Family and Friends Haul

Whew- the sale is over and I was able to stock up on all my makeup basics. This may appear like a lot of stuff but this is my usual once a year haul from Sephora so it's really not that much. I guess not too much for me as I am a makeup freak. I am so looking forward to trying some of these products on all my friends. The cheek palette and professional sized primer potion has already come in so handy already. The Clinique cream liners are quickly becoming my favorite cream liners- even compared to Bobbie Brown. I'll be doing a review on cream eyeliners soon so keep an eye out for that. I haven't done too many reviews on here but would love to start since I do try out lots of cosmetic items. Please let me know if there are any products you have questions about.

I've also been doing lots of makeup for friends recently for weddings, birthday parties, Halloween, etc. Photos are forthcoming on some fabulous feather eyelashes I purchased from

My new Love- NARS Danmari All About Cheeks Palette

During Sephora Friends and Family, I snatched up the NARS Danmari All About Cheeks Palette and anxiously awaited its arrival. It is beautiful. I got it just in time for Halloween and was able to do all my friends costume makeup with it- pirates, gangsters, and rock stars. I was hesitant to purchase it because I already have four out of the six shades. I find that sometimes shades in palettes don't measure up to the actual normal product. In this case, I found that the palette shades were of equally good quality and pigmentation. This palette is amazing and if you don't yet have NARS blushes but want to try it, I highly recommend it. It is $65 for six shades at .12 oz each. A normal NARS blush is $27 for .16 oz. If my math is correct, you get 46% more value by purchasing the palette. It basically comes out to $10 a blush with the palette. I got mine for 20% off so it cost me $52. I just got my VIB pass in the mail as well so if you've been looking for something to purchase with your VIB holiday pass, this is an awesome value. The palette also comes packaged in a beautiful matte/red box so it is great for gifting as well.


This set contains:
- 6 x 0.12 oz Cheek Color in Hungry Heart (gold ivory), Super Orgasm (peachy pink with gold glitter), Desire (cotton candy pink), Casino (dark brown with golden shimmer), Orgasm (peachy pink with golden shimmer), Sin (berry with gold shimmer)
