Tag: Rosebud Perfume Co.
As many times as we’ve been to Vegas – I’ve never been on my actual birthday!
My lips were getting dry and I forgot to pack extra lip moisture. I dragged my husband into Sephora, with the intention of buying a mini Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask (like I did last time), but they did not have any of the minis in stock and I didn’t feel like spending $26 on lip stuff. My husband had shown me a Kiehl’s Lip Balm for $10, which was what I was getting until I saw the bin of Smith’s by the checkout. Grabbed two Rosebud Perfume Co. tubes: Rosebud Salve in a Tube ($7) and Menthol and Eucalyptus Lip Balm ($7). They were very moisturizing and I could share with my husband.
I also used this opportunity to pick up this year’s birthday gift. I was gonna wait and order online to get the Jo Malone sample, but I decided to go ahead and get the Sol de Janeiro Bum Bum Cream and Coco Cabana Cream Set – that stuff smells so good! There were also gifts from Milk Makeup and Briogeo available.
$316 to VIB…
Sephora SUMMER SAVE
It’s that time of year again…Sephora’s end-of-summer sale event – 20% off!
I had been keeping Rosebud Perfume Co. Rose & Mandarin Lip Balm ($8) in my cart for my next order, so I finally got it! It’s subtle scented and very slick – I’ve been using it before bedtime.
The email with my promo code showed me the new Moroccanoil Color Depositing Masks, so I ordered two Minis ($7) – “Aquamarine” and “Hibiscus” – I’ll have to wait another few weeks until my hair fades more, but I am excited to try them.
Not impressed by her latest launches, I did order one of the new Kat Von D Kitten Minis – Crush on Blush – Highlighter + Blush Duo ($22). The blush shade is “Nova” which matches my fave lipstick “Lolita” perfectly – it’s a better match than my actual “Lolita” blush. I’ve been using the highlighter, “Gammaray” for eyeshadow – I LOVE it.
I wasn’t planning on getting a new foundation, but I was poking around on the site and came across bareMinerals Blemish Rescue Skin-Clearing Loose Powder Foundation for Acne Prone Skin in “2N” ($29). When I opened it up, my first thought was FUCK, it’s too dark. That’s what I get for letting the site choose for me – I had them match the last foundation that I felt was a really good match for me, Fenty Beauty in “150”. Once I got it on my face, it wasn’t really too dark – darker than my usual, but not too dark. This is a full coverage powder – more full coverage than I am used to, so I may save it for special occasions and not wear it to work every day. It wears okay, but I feel like it oxidizes by the end of day – maybe not the best for summer sweating.
Again, I got neither of the two samples I picked. Instead of REPLICA Whispers in the Library, I got Lancome La vie est Belle. Instead of Glamglow Waterburst, I got Clinique iD Dramatically Different Hydrating Jelly. Boo.
I know if probably doesn’t seem like it, but I’ve really reduced my spending this year. This order doesn’t quite get me to VIB status for 2020 – my total spend year-to-date has been $338, believe it or not. Another $662 just isn’t in the cards this year, unless I win the lottery!
