Beauty Haul: Sephora and Birchbox

Last week I posted a Sephora wish list that you can find here: Sephora Wish list. While I was searching for items that sparked my curiosity and interest I couldn't help but add items to my cart and keep shopping as all the new and shiny things kept popping up on my screen. I got a little spendy but I don't think I went over board considering Sephora happens to be one of those kryptonite stores for me.

Sephora has had so many new items lately and recently have added some great new brands to their inventory as well. I was initially only going to place an order for the Slip Small Slipsilk scrunchies, because I previously purchased the larger scrunchies and love to use them to sleep in, but they are too big for day wear, at least for me. I wore one to the gym this morning and the hold was great and it didn't snag my hair at all so Ill keep you posted on how I get along with these.

The next item I added to my cart was the Anastasia of Beverly Hills Sultry Palette. The shades in this palette were calling my name and i couldn't help but add it to my cart. It was between this one, the new Naked Cherry pallete, and the Too Faced Gingerbread palette. I ultimately decided on this one because I think the shades are unique and I don't own a palette like this. I'm most excited about all the shimmer shades but the two matte shades that I think I'm really excited about have to be Bloom and Birch. They are just so gorgeous and unique and I can't wait to play around with different eye looks. I will definitely bring this palette on vacation with me next week!

The last item I purchased from Sephora was the Four Sigmatic Mushroom coffee sampler kit. I was intrigued by the sampler kit because I didn't have to commit to one flavor and I have wanted to try mushroom coffee for a while now as a healthier morning jolt because my coffee obsession is real people! I tried the mushroom coffee this morning and you can see my real-time response on my Instagram stories.

The rest of the items from Sephora are ones that I traded my points in for or used a promo code for and include a Tory Burch fragrance mini (I already know I'm going to end up buying the full size because it smells so good!), Fresh Sugar Rose lip balm and rose deep hydration face cream, a NARS velvet matte lip pencil in the color "Do Me Baby," and a Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate mini.

The rest of the items I am going to mention are from my October Birchbox. Birchbox is a monthly subscription box that costs $10 a month and offers product minis and samples so that you can try them before committing to the larger sizes. This month's box had some great things including an Oribe Thick Dry Finishing Spray and a sample of the Estee Lauder Advanced Eye Repair Serum. The other items in the box include a R+CO ACV(Apple Cider Vinegar) hair rinse, a Schmidt jasmine tea deodorant, a Love of Color liquid eye shadow, and an Air repair hydrating serum. I can't wait to give all these items a try and possibly do some reviews on them and maybe a couple will make my monthly beauty favorites, stay tuned to see.
