august sephora haul.
it’s my birthday month so i get extra points from sephora when i shop and there’s also independence day celebration that means even more bonus points, ahaha!
this time i only bought a few stuff…
sugar advanced treatment lip balm - got the colorless one ‘cos it’s more moisturizing than the tinted ones… and i can always use lipstick or lip gloss on top if i need color, but most of the time i don’t… and so far i have been loving this lip balm, it’s not sticky, not oily, very light and doesn’t have weird or strong taste. it’s super moisturizing too, no more cracked lips even since i started using this.
benefit they’re real push up liner - this is the new gel liner from benefit with a special tip that makes it easy to get a line close to your lashes. it takes a few tries for me to get the angle and position… but once you get the hang of it, it’s really convenient to use and the color is really black and it’s matte. i have used quite a few times now, with and without primer and so far it didn’t smudge at all. but it as harder to remove than other eyeliners i have used… and i feel that the texture is kinda dry for a gel liner, sometimes it’s hard to create a smooth clean line because the product is too dry.
sephora daily makeup brush cleaner - a spray to quickly clean my brushes everyday, very easy to use… just spray and wipe.
bare minerals brush shampoo - for deep cleaning of my brushes, i do this once a week or sometimes fortnight if i don’t use my brushes that much… and this gel shampoo is very easy and nice to wash off all the products, leaving my brushes really soft and clean again.
birthday gift - this year, it’s a tube of 4 different colors of lip gloss, 2 shiny shades and 2 normal shades. i have tried all of them and i feel it’s a very thick lip gloss and it has a strong sweet taste… i didn’t really like the taste and texture. but the gloss is shiny and does its job, makes my lips appear fuller.
generally i’m happy with my purchases and i do enjoy doing makeup when i have time… but not when i’m in a rush lol… so it’s just on the weekends or on days i don’t have to go to office early.
