Sephora love...

Is it completely ridiculous that I have absolutely zero to share today but still wanted to check in and say hello anyway?  This blogging -- it's a drug, I tell you.

Know what else is a drug?  Sephora.  With its free samples and free shipping (when you're a true addict like me and spend over $50 on your purchase) and lovely things.  My latest purchase included these lovelies.

I'm pretty sure I've written about this product before, but in case you've forgotten, it's my favorite dry shampoo.  I don't like to wash/style my hair every day because (1) I'm lazy and (2) heat-styling your hair every day isn't ideal.  So on day two (and, let's be honest, sometimes days three and four) I blast my roots with this stuff and freshen them up.  On day two, I can sometimes wear it down again, but by day three, it's almost got to go up at least partway. 

I love Butter polish.  It's expensive, but it seems to last a bit longer, and it goes on SO pretty and smooth!  I haven't tried this color on my nails yet, but I'm usually a fan of a pale pink polish, so long as it isn't too yellow-y.

Three.  Dior's Diorshow Black Out Mascara.

I've shared about my mascara preferences before, and I'll go ahead and let you guys call me a flip-flopper on this one.  I do still love the Maybelline mascara, but I started to notice that by about 2:00 in the afternoon, it was starting to flake all over my face.  Maybe the waterproof formula was just too drying or something, but I went ahead and ordered Dior again and couldn't be happier.  It's much more expensive, but I have to use fewer coats to achieve a dramatic look than I do with the cheaper stuff, so I'm using less.  I even took a creepy/crappy iPhone picture of my eyes so you could see the mascara on a real, non-model human without eyelash extensions.

(The things I do in the name of informing the public. :)  And please pardon my eyebrows.  I'm scheduling a wax appointment right this very second.)

So there you have it.  Three things you should treat yourself to because you're a fabulous girl, and it's Friday, dadgummit!

I'm so glad I'm not the only one obsessed with Sephora. Seriously, it's a problem. I just love trying different products and asking the ladies who work there a bazillion questions. And then I leave with a huge bill. oops. I'm going to have to try that dry shampoo because I don't like taking the time to wash my hair every day either!

Ok, so I haven't worn makeup in almost 5 years, due to pregnancy, postpartum depression, weight gain, etc. However, I am READY to get back to looking good, for me, and for the hubs. I have a huge purchase (we are talking $400 or so, because I need everything) waiting in my shopping cart at right now, and I am just waiting until the hubs gives me the go-ahead. :-) I also spent 2 hours getting "made over" at two separate sephora locations last week, just to see what each of the artists had to tell me. Five years out of the makeup market left me without any knowledge at all!

However, I did want to mention a mascara that I have found and love, called Blink "Kiss Me," which does not flake. However, it literally just defines your lashes, so if you want length and plumping, etc, this is not the one. But if you like just a little color, that does not come off at all, check it out.

All week, I've been telling myself I need to pluck my eyebrows. So I even put my favorite tweezers (the only ones I use) in my purse, thinking I'd take care of it in the car. It's been 5 days.
I should probably give it a shot tomorrow.
Would you believe I've never bought anything from Sephora?
My husband doesn't realize how lucky he is.
Happy weekend, Ryan!

I desperately need mascara that works. I always wimp out and buy cheap-o mascara and by the end of the day, I can't tell I'm even wearing any.

I'm more of an Ulta girl ((I think they have better sales))... And I use Rockaholic dry shampoo, by TIGI, but I may have to try this out.
