Sephora Play Review June 2016

{Purchased by Me}

This month’s Sephora play featured a few of my favorite products!


Bumble and Bumble Don’t Blow It hair creme is meant to be put into wet hair and then you just leave it be! No drying necessary.

Bare Minerals bareSkin Bronzer is a lightweight bronzer. This one is a bit too dark for me, as most bronzersBenefit

Benefit They’re Real! Mascara is one of my all-time favorite beauty products ever.

Becca Backlight Priming Filter is a shimmering makeup primer that acts as a soft-focus filter.

Tarte Sunscreen lotion will come in handy in July when I have to spend a whole day outside at an event. If you don’t know me, just know that I am 100% an “inside girl!”

Tocca Beauty perfume smells light and flowery.sephora-play-review-june-2016

Here are some swatches of the Bare Minerals bronzer and the Becca primer.


In this photo, I used the Becca Primer and a teeny tiny bit of the Bare Minerals Bronzer. I also used the Bumble and Bumble Don’t Blow it Creme (but I did use a curling iron to help my hair out.)


Wild Animal Nail Art Challenge

{Purchased By Me}{Affiliate Links}

Today’s nail art is for this week’s Crumpet’s Nail Tarts challenge. The two prompts for this week are Wild Animals and/or yellow. This post just addresses the wild animals prompt. :) I started with two coats of Essence Finding Dori which is from the new Aquatix Collection. Then, I used Konad Black and Vivid Lacquer Plate VL010 to stamp this leopard (or cheetah???) print on top. Once that was dry, I used scotch tape for taping off the tips and painted Sephora Formula X Dark Matter on the tips. Lastly, I used my trusty striping tape to line the edge and give it a finished look.

Sephora by OPI Mini Haul

For my birthday earlier this month, my husband offered to buy me some nail polish. Hooray! We were near a Sephora so we went in. The Sephora by OPI collection was on sale! I think they are discontinuing it, but it doesn’t make it any less awesome!
I picked up Paisley Attention To Me, Just a Little Dangerous, and Henna-Thing is Possible

Paisley Attention to Me: Orange cream

Just a Little Dangerous: Dark purple cream with tiny lighter purple shimmers

Henna-Thing is Possible: A dark purple/fuschia with microshimmers. This is absolutely my favorite of the three!!
