An Anti Aging Superstar | Sunday Riley Flora Hydro Active Cellular Face Oil

Image
//self purchase//affiliate links in use//purchases made through trusted affiliate links help support this site// In the land of splurge lives the mythical  Sunday Riley Flora Hydroactive Cellular Face Oil . I featured this product in my  Sephora VIB Sale Wishlist post . At the time I wrote it, this product was still living la vida wishlist and, while I very much wanted it, I was going back and forth between this and a very spendy Natasha Denona eye shadow palette . After much dithering and deliberation, I decided to split the difference, buy this oil and a smaller eye shadow palette . Two beautiful products for me and I spent less money.

What I Bought During the Sephora VIB Rouge Sale

Image
//affiliate links are in use//shopping through trusted affiliates helps support this site// The Semi-Annual  Sephora  VIB Rouge Sale has come and gone and, if you read  this post  you know that I had (okay, still have) quite the beauty Loves List from which I culled some of my most wanted goodies to share with you. So... How did I do? How many of the pretties on my list did I snap up? More than I anticipated, as it turns out. I would have done even more damage but a couple of the items I shared were sold out by the time I was ready to pull the trigger on my order. Sold out items aside, I think I did alright for myself. I stocked up on a few staples, bought some new to me goodies to try and treated myself to some lovely little splurgy items I don't usually buy unless I have a gift card or it's VIB sale time. Items marked with an asterisk were in my  VIB Sale Wishlist post .

Bargain Beauty Find | Masqueology Cream Masks

Image
//products sent for editorial consideration//affiliate links in use// I don't know about you but one of my favorite skin care procedures is masking. When my skin is feeling very dry, a little rough and just stressed out, there is nothing like a soothing, hydrating mask to calm and rehydrate my complexion. I own and have tried a lot of masks and today, I'm sharing with you a couple that are not only effective, they are super affordable and easy for anyone to find and to buy. I received a couple of masks from  Masqueology  to try. I was intrigued by some of the benefits promised by these budget friendly masks: Moisturize and hydrate dry, tired skin Calm and transform dry, sensitive skin Diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles Hydrate and repair Reduce inflammation  Help fade and protect against hyperpgmentation and dark spots I received a  Moisturizing Cream Mask  and a  Special Care Cream Mask  to try. I have used, so far the Moisturizing Creme Mask.

Mirabella Beauty Masquerade Collection for Holiday and Beyond

Image
//products provided for consideration// Mirabella Beauty  has released a petite and incredibly beautiful collection for Holiday and I am rather in love with it. Masquerade  is a tight, four piece collection consisting of three eye shadows and a matte, red lipstick. The colours are vibrant and jewel toned and the finishes are sumptuous. Let us first adore the  Eye Lights Eye Shadows .  Mirabella  does eye shadow right and their shadows are among my all time favorites. One reason is that they are so beautiful to look at! The surface of these shadows are pressed in a dimensional diamond pattern that was almost painful to mar, by touching it. These three Prismatech shadows are ultra silky smooth, highly pigmented and offer beautiful payoff and long, crease and fade resistant wear. These shadows work together flawlessly but also work and play well with any other eye shadows you may wish to blend into the party. Smooth these shadows on with a finger or a brush, you can'
