I know I just posted my March Haul yesterday but I am super behind on everything I wanted to post this month. I plan everything out at the beginning of the month and it never quite seems to go as scheduled:) So I am now playing catch up and you'll probably get a whole bunch of stuff this week. This post will be my reviews on the items I purchased back in December. I included them in my haul post in January which you can check out here.
My first purchase was from Sephora. A coupon with a dollar amount off your purchase was mailed out and they also had a sample bag they were offering. I picked up the Estee Lauder Double Wear Light in shade 1.0. I really like the foundation and the coverage. It wears well for me but I do find that even this shade in 1.0 is too dark for me in the winter. I will use this up in the next few months as I get a bit of a tan. Sephora does carry a shade in .5 that I might try out in the future.
I also picked up a lipgloss from the Sephora brand in the shade Earth and Fire. I love the formula of these glosses. I don't wear it nearly enough because I am trying to work through older lip products before they go bad. But I do love how these feel and there are a million shades to choose from.
As for the samples, I absolutely loved this Tory Burch fragrance. You can see my review in my March empties. I don't think I have even used the others.
This was the sample bag that I received with my order. I have been using up the Urban Decay eye shadow primer samples. I do like the original formula of their primer but I have not been a fan of the other ones like the anti-aging or the shimmer one. I also used up the Clean Reserve perfume sample. I have not found a Clean scent I do not like. I love the fresh scent of them.
The Amore Pacific peel left my face super soft. It was a powder that you mixed with water and then applied to your face and rinsed off. It was one of those things where I kept having to force myself not to touch my face because it felt so nice. lol
I passed on the lipstick since I don't wear red and I haven't not used the other products included in the bag yet.
The next part of my haul was my Sephora Play box. Again, the lip stain was in a darker shade that I will not wear so I passed it along.
I recently finished the Urban Decay All Nighter setting spray. It was nice but I don't feel like setting sprays do anything for me or that they are a necessary step in my makeup.
I also finished off the Detox Dry Shampoo which I did not like. It left a very heavy white cast that I felt was much harder to work in than other dry shampoos I have tried.
I recently opened the Lancome mascara and it gives me good length but does not give me volume that I need. I will continue to use it up and see if my opinions change.
The final part of my December purchases was this Julep nail polish sampler. I subscribed to the Julep Maven box as part of my Christmas presents for 6 months. This nail polish set was a free gift with subscription. I have absolutely loved the Julep nail polishes, as well as the other products from the brand that have come in my monthly boxes. It was definitely a good choice for me! I find that the Julep polishes last a good week (sometimes more) on me before I feel they have chipped too much and need to be removed. This is so much better than other formulas I have tried.
I hope these reviews help give you a better idea of the products and I what I think. I enjoy these posts for myself because it helps keep me aware of whether I am making use of my purchases or buying more than I can really use in the 3 months since I posted the haul.
