Well, Sephora had 8% cashback on ebates so I couldn't resist! Let's get right into it! Here is my Sephora Haul!!
- Burberry Eye Colour Wet & Dry in Porcelain 100: Wow! All of these shadows are great! This is a beautiful light ivory color that is perfect for inner corner highlights and brow highlights. They blend beautifully, they are very pigmented, they have buildable coverage, and they have great staying power. I forgot to use primer on my lids the first time I used these and they lasted all day in the New York heat and humidity!
- Burberry Eye Colour Wet & Dry in Stone 101: Well, like the above, the formula is the same so it's great to begin with. This is an amazing transition color for me, a great base, just a really grand color to have. Sadly Sephora was out of Pale Barley and Rosewood which were recommended to me but I am on the email list to be notified when they are back in stock!
- Burberry Eye Colour Wet & Dry in Almond 103: Formula- yes. Color- yes! It's a beautiful subtle shading color for neutral smokey eyes. At first I thought I needed to exchange it but it's not that dark at all. It's gorgeous! The packaging is very hefty and so luxurious! And you know me, I'm a packaging whore. I NEED THEM ALL!
- Burberry Cashmere Concealer in Porcelain: Ok, this was the star of the show in my opinion. I am used to my Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer and while it still holds a place in my heart for my first concealer ever, the Burberry is much better. It's thinner than Nars while still offering the same great coverage. I did have better luck applying this with a primer; I used YSL Touche Eclat Blur Primer and these two are a match made in heaven. I just cannot get enough of this! It is very pricey but it's worth it! I think I will try to clean the sponge tip after each use to keep it clean and sanitary though.
- ABH Brow Wiz in Granite: I have now officially upped my brow game. It's on. A few weeks ago I got ABH Brow Powder duo in Granite and my brows had never looked better. I try to keep my brows natural looking and these two do the trick! There is a bit of a learning curve with them but once you get some practice in, you're good to go! And you can almost never have too much on there because you can blend everything out with the spooli on the end of the Brow Wiz. Your brows might be a little sore from blending, but they do the job! I prefer my ELF spooli because it has softer bristles but the ABH is smaller and is much more precise.
- Bumble & bumble Pret-a-Powder: My friend Anne swears by this dry shampoo so it was high time I got it. Uhh... either my hair hasn't been that dirty when I used it or I didn't use enough, or maybe both, but I was fairly underwhelmed with this product. But to be honest, I think my hair wasn't that dirty. I was so excited to try this I just put it in mostly clean hair, I think only a day old, and since I didn't need it cleaned or texturized, the dry shampoo didn't do a lot for me. The second time I used this, wow! Things I've learned: 1. Don't be afraid to pour/shake the powder in your hair. I had never used a powder before and was unfamiliar with the motions. 2. Make sure your hair is dirty. 3. Don't be afraid to pour/shake the powder in your hair. But I still don't know about this. I might exchange it for Dry Bar dry shampoo. I just didn't see amazing results like I was hoping and expecting. I also love the burst of cooling spray that aerosol cans give.
