Hey Loves, Bonnie here 💘
Last week I gave myself a little ‘treat yoself’ money and decided to go online shopping because.. why not(?) LOL
Of course, my store of choice was Sephora although their recent NEW items haven’t caught my attention (except the lippies by bareMinerals ) but I decided to purchase a few high-rated items on Sephora and go from there.
So, I purchased all of these items (excluding the Josie Maran SPF Moisturizer and bareMinerals lipstick) based on their high-ratings on Sephoras website and so far only (2) here I think may be a miss
I’ve been dying to purchase a hair mist and I was looking into Flower Bomb by Victor & Rolf because.. i’m already in love with their perfume and since i’m going natural i’d love to just have my curly hair smelling like flowerbomb at all times but.. I came across Angel by Thierry Mugler which is a 4-5 star and a bit cheaper, so I figured ‘ ehh why not’
I am sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo disappointed……….
My personal opinion this mist reminds me of cheap/old perfume? The scent is overwhelming and I did wait a few minutes before smelling it on my hair and it smells like a cheap fragrance sold at a flea market – I dont understand the high rating but i’d say this scent is very different and the strong undertones is whats forcing me to return this ASAP
This perfume I am a bit unsure of although its a lovely fresh scent however, when it comes to perfumes I tend to stick with unique scents like Gucci premiere or pretty much any perfume from Versace. Its just not really a big deal..
P.S this small 1.7 oz cost me $105 but I’ll give this another go tomorrow and see how I like it before returning it
bareMinerals outdid themselves with this Gen Nude Matte Liquid Lipcolor collection ( I literally want them all) I mean, if you’re a lipstick addict like I am then I def. suggest seeing all of these gorgeous shades in person
Oh ya! All of these lipsticks in this collection smell like chocolate (yum) and the formula slides on soo0000 smooth and comfortably – Its currently my go to lippies.
This buttery goodness is for those ‘no makeup’ days LOL I need to have my lips hydrated at all times otherwise they shrink up like raisins and it looks like I have no lips (does this happen to anyone else?) anyways, this literally feels like butter and smells of butterscotch. I have been buying Korres products left and right because I’m currently deeply in love with their skin care line LOL and when I’m in love with a brand .. I buy EVERYTHING!
Deeply in love. I purchased this flower-scented shower gel for the high-rating as well but also because Korres hasnt disappointed me (yet) and so far, all of their products are 4-5 stars in my book
In one of my previous post I mention this moisturizer as part of my skin care regimen however, I had the very small bottle and was quickly running out. I decided to re-purchase the bigger size because I cant live without this moisturizer! If you’ve read my previous post I am using a brightening treatment for my face to diminish any dark spots I have and because the products have skin brightening properties – Sunscreen is extremely important otherwise, you will not see any results. Oh, and that goes for any brightening or skin lightening treatments too.
P.S this suncreen makes your makeup look dewy but if you want a matte look use Supergoop SPF spray moisturizer
Overall, I’m happy with my purchase except for the Angel hair mist which I will be returning soon and the Chloe perfume which I’m kind of unsure whether I like it or not?
regardless, the best items in this mini-haul are the bareMineral lipsticks that are totally my favorite!
