Stamping Saturdays #28

Stamping Saturdays #28

A few year ago, I was a Sephwhora. What is a Sephwhora, you ask? Well, it’s someone who basically lives a Sephora. I loved going every week and blowing at least $100 each trip–ahhh the joys of having disposable income. Oh how times have changed! However, I find myself much happier today even if my income isn’t where it once was. I also find that I am not as interested in buying tons of cosmetics anymore since I basically just wear concealer, blush and lip gloss…and let’s not forget the eyebrow products! I finally took the plunge and decided to try out the Anastasia Dipbrow pomade so I’m super excited to see if it’s as good as everyone says it is. While I was at Sephora, I also picked up a new polish: Formula X Pedal To The Metal.

Sephora Formula X Pedal To The Metal 1Sephora Formula X Pedal To The Metal 2Sephora Formula X Pedal To The Metal is such  gorgeous red leaning purple that is shimmery and metallic in finish. The formula was nice, but I did find that it dried very quickly so it was easy to overwork the polish. It is fairly opaque so you only need two coats.

So what do you think? I’m liking the mani overall even if the design does cover up most of the polish. I’m going to cut it a little short today because I need to hurry up and get ready because I’m going to the fair today with my bro, sil and little peanut. I bet he’s going to really enjoy it and hopefully I’ll have a funny picture of him to share. Thanks for stopping by, and I will talk to you soon!

If you are beauty products junkie, I am sure that you are very familiar with Sephora. I received their VIB invite in the mail the other day so I made my way over there for the sample bag and free umbrella. I was glad that the event was an all day thing because when they start these things at 6:30, the place turns into a clusterfuck. Am I the only one who was a little peeved that this time around they only gave a 15% discount instead of the usual 20%? Don’t get me wrong: I appreciate any discount but that along with the super shitty 100 and 500pt perks, I am not as loyal to Sephora as I used to be. If you’re not familiar with Sephora’s loyalty program, you get 1pt for every dollar that you spend. If you spend $350.00 or more in a calendar year, you become a VIB which is supposed to come with a lot of perks. Not so much anymore. I didn’t really need anything so I just went to browse. Actually, I wanted to get some concealer but apparently they don’t carry it in store anymore so I will have to get it online. I ended up purchasing a few things anyway.

I got the nails inc set because it was on sale for $10 which is a pretty good deal considering each polish is $9.50 on its own. I’ve never really tried the sephora brand nail polish but the color is so pretty. It’s a tangerine orange with fine gold microshimmer. Lastly, I picked up my favorite daytime moisturizer.

Now, for the free goodies:

Samples: Sephora Full Action Extreme Effect Mascara, Givenchy Mister Light Instant Light Corrective Pen, Especially Escada Solid Fragrance, Boscia BB Cream, Make Up For Ever Smoky Lash Mascara and Bumble and Bumble Thickening Shampoo/Conditioner.

How cute is this umbrella? (Yes, I was watching I Love Lucy. lol) I’m glad they gave umbrellas this time rather than totes. I must have a billion Sephora totes already!

If you’re a VIB you can take advantage of the 15% discount in-store and online through April 6, 2012. The online code is CHICVIB.

Happy shopping!
