I just couldn’t resist. I have no self control 😦
Just got this in the mail yesterday (since it’s past midnight now). Last week had been really rough, and this was supposed to be my Valentine’s Day present to myself. Alright fine, that’s an excuse. It really was just because these were much too tempting not to get:
- Too Faced Natural Flirt Makeup Collection – online only
- Buxom Flirt Alert – A Stunning Sultry Eye Duo
Actually, I had wanted to get Buxom’s Hot Ticket set instead of the Flirt Alert duo. I would have gotten the full-sized mascara, which I actually really like, as well as the stay-there eyeshadow in Beagle, a nice lilac colour. The liner would have been smaller, but I don’t have much faith in liners anyway, as I have yet to find a single one that actually doesn’t budge on my eyes.
If you can believe it, I had the Too Faced set and the Hot Ticket set in my shopping cart for a few days. Just as it was processing my credit card, they said Hot Ticket was out of stock.
… well darn. That was upsetting. So I settled for the Flirt Alert duo and my order was processed.
And then not even a full day after, Hot Ticket was back in stock. And is still in stock now.
… damn it, Sephora!
I’m still lusting after Hot Ticket. But there are no more in stores and if I order online, I need to make a purchase of $75.00 CAD before I get free shipping. My bank account is already protesting my recent splurges. (But why do I get the feeling that I will succumb anyway?)
Anyway, the Too Faced Natural Flirt collection was way too cute to pass up on. Pink products and bows everywhere! How can this not scream “buy me now”?
Left to right:
- pink makeup bag with black ribbons
- Pink Leopard Brightening Bronzer
- Exotic Color Intense Eye Shadow in Magic Mushroom
- Petite Pouf Brush
- Glamour Gloss in This is Pretty!
- LashGasm mascara
- Shadow Insurance in Candlelight
I feel like I need to feature the petite pouf brush again on its own because I have a guilty confession to make: this was more than half the reason I wanted this set.
Here is Buxom’s Flirt Alert duo:
- Stay-there Eyeshadow in Pug (
- Insider Eyeliner in Onyx (jet black)
As I said, I don’t have much faith in eyeliners, especially the pencil/powder types. This is only because ALL eye makeup smudges on me. So I”m really not overly excited about this set, it was really just to bring my total up so I could get free shipping. I might end up returning this, we’ll see. Although I do like the shadow, it’s a smoky pewter. It was the reason that this duo caught my eye at all – I can see myself making this work.
I have way too much makeup. I don’t think I’m ever going to run out.
I don’t think I’ve even opened everything yet. I definitely haven’t even opened anything yet.
