Chosungah 22 Lip Tint in CashmereI did a review on this earlier and I stand by my thoughts on the lipgloss side. But the tint is amazing and I have been wearing it all the time. I was thinking of buying a second to keep in my other purse as well. SO GOOD. You can buy them at Sephora

Anastasia Glow kit in Gleam– I love them both but Gleam has been the one I am reaching for the most. The pans are nice and large, and the colors are beautiful. I use crushed pearl the most but love to layer starburst and Mimosa as well.

La Mer the Concealer in Light– OK, I know this is pricey for a concealer ($70) But hear me out. Clea de Peau’s famous concealer is just as pricey and I can promise you this is just as good if not better. I have NEVER had a concealer work as well as this one. No creasing (and thats without me baking) Goes on like a dream, and lasts all day. It’s a little drying but thats not to bad. overall this concealer is a champion and I am obsessed!

IOPE Air Cushion XP #N21– This is such a nice formula. Looks very flattering on my skin and lasts all day. I love the way my skin feels when I wear this as well. I have been wearing this almost everyday.

YSL ROUGE VOLUPTÉ – Silky Sensual Radiant Lipstick SPF 15 in Beige Ultimate- Love love LOVE this color, and formula. This is such a flattering neutral color it goes with everything! Feels nice and moisturizing on, and looks amazing.

E.L.F Eye Brow Duo Kit in Medium– This has to be one of the nicest (and most inexpensive) eye brow kits. It works and blends like a dream and is so affordable ($3). I have been using this everyday!

Haul :: Sephora April VIB Sale

I usually do 2 major orders for makeup and skincare a year, and they coincide with Sephora’s VIB sales (20% in November 15% in April). This year was a little tame for me since I bought a lot of products from other websites and stores (Neiman Marcus, Ulta, Saks, and various websites for my Korean and Japanese skincare and makeup items).

For the pictures I only have most of the items, not all. Because for some reason Sephora decided to ship my items in 3 different shipments (they have NEVER done that before so strange).

Here we go!!!!!

The boxes are really nice

I have wanted to try Hakuho-do brushes, and I have been intrigued by these for awhile. I am not expecting the works of a real Hakuho-do, but I like that they partnered with Sephora for these brushes, and guess what… they are SYNTHETIC! I had mixed feelings about that but I read and watched some reviews so I figured I would buy a few.

Also it was buy one get one free! They are limited edition so if anyone is interested I would go grab one or two before they are gone!
