Kat von D Shade and Light Eye palette- worth the hype?

January 22, 2016


kat von d shade and light palette eye swatches review

This week I decided to start a series on my blog called ‘Cult product- is it worth it?’ in which I will be discussing incredibly popular items that have been hyped up over the internet, in particular by bloggers and vloggers that absolutely swear by them. In the first installment, I wanted to talk about the ever popular Shade and Light Palette by Kat Von D. Unfortunately you cannot get this in the UK per se, however Sephora started shipping internationally which makes it a lot more accessible plus there are loads of rumours about the brand making its way in the UK market this year, as their exclusivity contract with Sephora has come to an end.

First of all, let’s get into the packaging. The palette comes in a very thick, sturdy black cardboard packing with black and gold writing on it, in a very typical Kat von D style: gothic and inctricate. Also I thought I would mention that this packaging is identical to her face palette with an eponymous name, the only difference being the word ‘eye’ added under the palette name.  It comes with a decent size mirror, which also makes it great for travelling. I personally really lik the estethics behind the palette with my only complaint being that because of the black cardboard and the fact that it feels slightly rubbery, this easily becomes ‘smudge city’ and it’s very difficult to clean, up, similar to the packaging on Nars products.

On the back on the box as well as the palette itself you can find a preview of what you will find inside. I think it’s really smart to also have the colours on the outer packaging as sometimes if you are in a shop and there are no testers, it’s a lot easier to see what’s inside while for the palette itself, if you’re a blogger for example, it’s very easy to reference the name of each shadow instead of having something like a plastic film on top of palette which, once removed, means you will never know what you’re putting on. Also this saves space inside the palette and allows it to be a good size.

Also, inside the box, you can find a leaflet, both in French and English with three different inspirations for your looks, or three different ways to ‘contour your eyes’ with effects such as lifting, defining and balancing. I think this is a great little extra that is very helpful for beginners who are only getting into eyeshadow looks and also it offers some inspiration to anyone reaching out for this. Definitely really well thought out on this one!

Now let’s get to the best part- what’s inside the palette! The palette comes with 12 different matte shadows, with 3 of them considerable larger, which are defined as the base colours. I think one of the most unique part of this palette and what makes it so popular is that, while being a neutral palette, it does not lean warm or cool, unlike others on the market, but instead it offers three clear quads, a neutral, warm and cool toned one to suit any needs and also create variety within what one could call a boring selection of shadows such as beige, cream and browns.

The shadows are very creamy and incredibly pigmented and most importantly there are no duds: they all perform equally and blend like a dream. Some might complain that these are a bit powdery but as long as you tap the excess off your brush and make sure to keep your motions slightly more toned down, you will not make a mess. Also this is to be expected from a pigmented matte shadow so that almost made me happy, instead of having a chalky pigment with no adherence to the skin, like a lot of other ones on the market.

 

Now let’s get swatching! I wanted to talk about each quad individually and I wanted to take photos in direct as well as indirect sunlight so you can see the colours as true to life as possible.

From left to right: Laetus, Lucius, Solas, Samael

Laetus is described as a “creamy nude.” It’s a light beige with soft, warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. is described as a “soft beige.” It’s a light beige with neutral undertones and a pearly sheen. Lucius is is described as a “soft beige.” It’s a light beige with warm undertones and a pearly sheen.  Solas  is described as an “espresso brown.” It’s neutral dark brown with a matte finish. Samael is described as a “dusty fawn.” It’s a muted, medium-dark brown with warm undertones and a matte finish.

From left to right: Lazarus, Liberatus, Shax, Saleos

Lazarus is described as a “cool taupe.” It’s a light-medium, gray-leaning taupe with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. Liberatus is described as a “pinkish ivory.” It’s a cool-toned white with a hint of beige and a matte finish.  Shax is described as a “jet black.” It’s a darkened black with cool undertones and a matte finish. Saleos is described as a “smoky brown.” It’s a muted, dark taupe brown with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish.

 

kat von d shade and light palette eye swatches review warm tones

From left to right: Ludwin,Latinus, Sytry, Succubus

Ludwin is described as a “peachy bronze.” It’s a muted, light-medium orange with warm undertones and a satiny sheen. Latinus is described as a “golden bisque.” It’s a yellowed beige with warm undertones and a pearly sheen. Sytry is described as a “chocolate brown.” It’s a dark brown with warm, yellow undertones and a mostly matte finish. Succubus is described as a “rich rust.” It’s a muted, medium-dark coppery brown with warm, red undertones and a mostly matte finish.

 

Out of all the shades, I have to admit that there is one slight disappointment, and that would be Shax, which is described as ‘jet black’ yet tends to sheer out and also just doesn’t have as much pigmentation as for example ‘Black Out’ from Urban Decay, which is so far my favorite black ever! On the other hand though, I think this is meant to be more of a black that can be used for a daytime look, where you might want a lighter hand and not a jet black which would make any look overly dramatic.

 

All in all, I have to say that I am impressed by this palette and I understand why everyone is talking about it- I am a massive fan of matte colours and I think it is a very wearable everyday palette that should be in everyone’s kit. Definitely worth the hype!

You can buy this on Sephora’s website here or at Rose’s Beauty Store here and it costs $46 which is around £34 including tax.

 

What are your thoughts on this palette? Have you tried it before or is it on your wishlist? I would love to hear your thoughts below :)

 

Lots of love,

Claudia

January Empties

January 15, 2016

DSC_0226s

I have been meaning to write this post for a while as I’ve been holding on to these empties but here it is- my first empties post!

 

As you can probably see, there is not much make up in there as I don’t go through them as quickly compared to other items- besides mascara, obviously, which, remember, has to be binned after 3 months (!) Anyhow let’s get into it and I’ll also let you know if I’m planning to repurchase them.

 

La Roche Posay Effaclar Clarifying Lotion- find here

This is probably my third bottle and is definitely one of my favorite toners. Both my husband and I use it and we have very different skin- he has oily, blemish prone skin, while my skin is dry to normal with occasional breakouts. This, I think, shows that this toner is great for every skin type and really makes you feel properly cleansed and ready for your moisturizer. Definitely a repurchase!

 

L’Oreal Volume Million Lashes Mascara- find here

Over time I have tried quite few mascaras from L’Oreal and most of the time I am quite happy with the results, however I have to say that this was just meh. It was okay, it did not smudge on me and the application was easy however I felt like the wand was very spiky and quite few times I actually managed to get in my eye, which is very unusual for me, that never happens! Also I feel as if it dried out very quickly which added to the already mentioned dryness of it. Will not be repurchasing

 

L’Occitane Pivoine Sublime Perfecting Cream- find full size here

This is a sample that I got at some point around October and as it was a decently sized pot, I was able to use it quite a lot and test it out properly. The cream claims to make your skin ‘ luminous and rested, with an immediate radiance boost. The skin feels smooth, soft and velvety. Pores, fine lines and imperfections look reduced. Your skin glows with a fresh and natural beauty.’ God, I love descriptions, they make them sound so magical, right? I wouldn’t go as far as saying that my face was glowing, however the cream felt very nicely and I think it helped my skin transition into winter without any crazy dryness or breakout so that is always an extra point from me. Also I tried the serum that comes with it in the shop as well as they seemed to be pairing very well together (at least my hand thought so) so I might be repurchasing a full size of this one together with the serum.

 

Morrocan Oil Treatment (travel version) – find here

Everyone and their mother talks about how amazing this treatment is for your hair and how shiny and glossy and hydrated it makes them feel. I gave in and bought the small version of this as I like to test things out before splurging £30+ which also lasted me forever, considering I wash my hair every 3-4 days and have used it every single time. I did notice that if helped my hair detangle a lot more and the ends were not as dry, which indeed made blow drying it a lot easier. However, as the same time, I have some Argan Oil from when I went to Morroco which also does a great job, so at the moment I am on the fence on whether I would repurchase it as I think it’s quite a pricey product that could be replaced with a pure oil.

 

Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer- find here

I know that this one is not a new product and has definitely been spoken about for a million times however: HOW AMAZING IS THIS? For a product that costs under £5, this concealer has probably the best formula for even the most stubborn dark circles. Some people may complain that it’s not as thin of a formula compared to other but at the same time, it might have double or triple the coverage. This has already been repurchased before it was even finished and I have quite few of them lying around and will probably continue to buy them, because I am mad about them.

 

Soap&Glory Vitamin C Face Wash- find here

Out of all these empties, this one took the absolute longest to finish! I think I’ve had this for over a year or closer to 18 months and by the end of it, I just really wanted to finish it, as it’s such a big bottle! Standard face washes come in 150 ml bottles and they still last quite a long time, while this jumbo one is a 350ml bottle so just imagine! Anyway, this face wash is a really good basic daily face wash which also has some small beads in it, which makes it more of a scrub/wash 2 in 1. When I first started using it, I really loved it and I still think it’s a good face wash for all skin types, however over the last year my taste in skincare has changed quite a bit so I probably will not be repurchasing this one. Also, even if I do, it will definitely be a small one!

 

Sephora Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover- find here

This one is a little travel size that I bought back home in Romania as I finished the one that I had with me. It’s a dual phase remover, which means that you shake it before using it and is has quite an oily consistency which removes even the most stubborn waterproof mascara and crazy color eye shadows. I will most definitely repurchase this one as soon as I have the chance to!

 

La Roche Posay Hydraphase Intense Eyes- find here

Last but not least, another product from La Roche Posay. I am generally a big fan of French pharmacy brands so I am constantly trying new products from LRP, Vichy, Bioderma etc. Also, I am constantly looking for my holy grail eye cream, as I have crazy dark circles and I am still hoping that some cream will make a difference- spoiler alter: nothing has so far. This one is okay, maybe a bit too gel-like for my liking as I prefer more moisturizing thick or serum like cream. I think also that this is more suited as a morning eye cream rather than evening as it’s so light and absorbs very quickly so it won’t intervene with any make up. I probably won’t be repurchasing  this one and as continuing the search!

 

What are your latest empties and what would you repurchase or recommend in general from the things that you recently emptied?

 

Love,

C.

Nude Palettes Review

November 18, 2015

Naked 2 palette, collection eyes uncovered, sephora nude palette unrise to sunset bronze, la palette nude l'oreal rose plum, naked 2 urban decay

I cannot be the only girl who has more than one nude palette and whenever a new one comes out, you’re like ‘I neeeeeed thaaat’ like you’ve never seen a brown or champagne eye shadow before.

I thought I would talk about the palettes that I currently own and tell you how I feel about them.

 

Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette (£38)

Of course that I HAD to have one of these. I’ve had it for about a year now and to be completely honest, I reach out for it the most out of all my palettes. As you can see in one of the photos below, the first three colors have been my favorite ones and my most used- I use half baked (holy grail gold!) and Foxy  all over the lid and Booty call for under my brow and in the inner corner. This, with a liquid eyeliner, has been my go to look for years. In terms of the shadows’ quality, they have very little to no fallout and don’t crease for at least 8-10 h if you use a primer ( I personally use the Milani eyshadow primer which I ADORE). This overall is a good warm toned nude palette, which is a staple in many bloggers’ and MUA’s cases.

EDIT2

L’oreal La Palette Nude Palette Rose (£14.99)

First of all, this has such a long name! L’Oreal Paris Color Riche La Palette Nude Eyeshadow Palette Rose- try saying that quickly! This has been my first dibble into matte eye shadows, as I one day found this on an offer for £10 and I was like ‘why not?’. The palette has 10 eye shadows, with 6 shimmery ones and 4 matte ones., which are a creamy beige which can be used all over the lid, a warm darker beige, a taupe and a mauvy sort of dark brown. The other colors come in a range from champagne to dark purple. The pigmentation of these will not wow you, but if you use it over a white base (such as Nyx’s Milk Jumbo Pencil or their white base) you can create a bolder look. Overall this is an okay palette which I would recommend to someone who is on a budget and wants a bit of a variation from the usual nudes, as it has more purply shades in.

Sephora Colorful 5 Eyeshadow Palette ($25 aka £16.50)

This is Sephora’s own Palette in the color Sunrise to Sunset Bronze. I picked this one up in an emergency situation- when I went home to Romania in summer, I did not have any palettes with me and had an event to attend, so I wanted to create a bronzey smokey eye. I ran to Sephora (wish I could do that here in the UK also) and this caught my eye as a good contender and for a pretty good price- I cannot remember how much but I am sure that I did not pay over £10 for it. This palette has four shimmery shadows and a dark matte brown. The payoff is pretty good in terms of pigmentation but again, it looks a lot better with a white base. One thing that I do love about this palette though is the matte color which can also double as an eyeliner or can be used to fill in your eyebrows (if you’re a brunette of course). Also I find myself using the middle color- the gold (they do not have individual names unfortunately) quite a bit even when I am using other palettes.

Naked 2 palette, collection eyes uncovered, sephora nude palette unrise to sunset bronze, la palette nude l'oreal rose plum, naked 2 urban decay

Collection Eyes Uncovered Nude Palette (£3.99)

Yes, you read that right. £3.99! This is one of the many great releases that Collection (previously known as Collection 2000)  brought us this fall. The packaging is pretty flimsy, as it’s made of cardboard however at the same time that makes it very easy to carry  as it’s incredible lightweight. It comes with 5 shimmery colors, again ranging from a light champagne to more cool toned light browns and a matte color, the dark brown, so pretty similar to the Sephone one- besides it being 4 times cheaper! One of the things that I do appreciate is the fact that on the back of the case they give you the the names for the shadows, which are : White Chocolate, Buttercream, Biscuit, Chocolate Milk, Brown Sugar and Espresso. They sound delicious, don’t they? I very strongly recommend this palette as it’s great value as well as a versatile nude palette, with a mix of warm and cool tones, which is very difficult to find in a small palette: they usually go one way or the other. Also they have this in Nude Bronze and Nude Grey, which, as the names suggest, have a warm and a cool tone respectively.

I hope you enjoyed reading about my current nude palettes and let me know what is the nude palette staple in your beauty drawer!

Love,

C.

Skincare Routine

November 13, 2015

Skincare has been a very important part of my life as soon as I started wearing makeup. It is impossible for me to understand how some people can sleep with makeup on, or generally not look after their skin. My motto: ‘you got only one face!’ so you don’t want to be looking back 20 years from now wondering you would have used that serum or used more sunscreen. Prevention is key!

bioderma sephora

 

Make up removers: The first products that I want to talk about are actually the only ones that I do not have a photos of, as I’ve just finished mine and need to order new ones. The first one is Bioderma Hydrabio Micellaire Solution in the blue version, which is a bit more hydrating than the original one (absolute holy grail!).  I literally swear by it, as it removes everything, it’s gentle to the skin and you can literally put it in your eyes and it doesn’t sting at all (I can’t be the only one that does that). So run to your nearest pharmacy or go on Amazon and get this one- it’s the absolute BEST. If you do not have access to this, my second favorite is Sephora Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover – which is a double phase remover so you have to shake it before use- it has an oily consistency and removes even the most stubborn waterproof mascara.

Next- on to cleansing. My skin is mostly dry however lately has been acting a bit strange and is more combination, which is why I switched up products to something a bit… rougher, the kind that  make your face feel squeaky clean.

DSC_0201

After using a makeup remover, I use an oil based cleanser as the first part of my double cleansing routine (Thank you Korea for that!). My personal favorite is Super Facialist Renew Cleansing Oil (which  by the way is now on sale at Boots for only £5.49- absolute steal!) I rub this all over my dry face and I love feeling how it breaks up the rest of remaining makeup- such a satisfying feeling!

Next I go in with my Vichy Normaderm 3 in 1 cleanser which acts as an exfoliator, cleanser and mask at the same time. Also it claims that you can actually apply it as a mask for 5-10 minutes, but I haven’t done that yet and I somehow feel like it would be a massive waste of product, as it already does a great job for my face.

Twice a week I also use a gentle exfoliator, also from Super Facialist, their Rose Hydrator Facial Scrub which has very gentle particles, so it will still strip a layer of your skin, but it will not feel as if your face is being violated if that makes sense.

edit3

Toner! I LOVE La Roche Posay Clarifying Lotion and have been using it for almost 2 years and I see no reason why I will change it anytime soon (but again never say never- might try the Pixi Glow Toner!). I use it with a cotton pad mostly on my t-zone (even when my skin is more dry than combination) and I can almost FEEL my pores disappearing and my skin feels smooth and at its cleanest. I would recommend this to anyone who does not have an incredible sensitive skin, as this is not necessarily the most gentle lotion out there. For sensitive skin, I recommend Lancome Tonique Confort which is my emergency toner if my skin feels sad and dehydrated. It’s very gentle and it’s probably the only toner that I have ever used which almost makes me feel as if I’ve put moisturizer on.

Hydration!

I always used to use moisturizer on its own, however for the last few months, I have been converted to using a serum beforehand and it has made all the difference. I thought I would mention two products as they are both very good and I strongly recommend them. The first one is Super Facialist Vitamin C Serum which is a brightening serum. It absorbs very quickly in the skin and allows the moisturizer to get in all the right places :)

The next serum that I wanted to mention, which is the one that I currently am using, as I have a sample from a magazine (check out my post to see where you can get it) and so far I am quite impressed. When putting it on, you are necessarily going to be blown away, as it feels like most serums: not too hydrating, not drying, more like… just there. But let me tell you: my skin has been AMAZING since I started using this and I have had no breakouts or any other kind of trouble, so I am officially converted to what must be one of the most popular cult beauty products ever!

Eye cream- I used to use Kiehl’s before – both their avocado one as well as their midnight recovery one. They are both okay, but I just haven’t felt that they were good enough for me to repurchase either of them. Currently I am using Emu Oil Moisturizing Cream which I randomly found on Feel Unique and had great reviews so I was like: why not?  So far it’s been.. okay but not really my holy grail yet. Still searching for something that can make a difference to my dark circles, even though I am starting to give up.

Face Cream- Again, I am using a sample which I got from L’Occitane, which is their Perfecting Cream. I have been using it for the last few weeks and I LOVE IT. Again, I think this is part of the reason why my face has been acting so well and I plan on purchasing the full size as soon as this one is done. Also I am very tempted to buy the matching serum, as I tried it in the shop and it felt quite thick and luminous. I will let you know if I do!

My emergency cream for when my face is super dry is Lancome Neurocalm– such a good cream which I strongly recommend to anyone with dry and/or sensitive skin. I got their travel kit from the airport which included this cream, the toner that I talked about before and a makeup remover. And all three for only £20 so definitely worth it!

edit2

Last but not least, MASKS!!

I love a good mask. I could wear one all the time and I love trying new ones.

The one that I am currently on to is the Barefaced Mud Mask, which is sooo good. It dries out on the skin and after having it on for only 10 minutes, my skin feels brand new. I like to use this before bed and I recommend it a million times to everyone!

Now this last product is a bit of a special one. These are clay powder pouches which my mom sends to me regularly from Romania. My favorite type of masks are the deep, cleansing, getting into your pores types, so this one, mixed with water or apple cider vinegar, leaves my the skin again, brand new. You can only find them here (in Romania only unfortunately) however I feel that a good replacement would be the Aztec Healing Clay which is only £8.95 ad will last you forever.

So here you have: my current skincare routine. Let me know what you are currently using and if you have any holy grail products that you would recommend!

Cheers,

Top 10 Sephora Christmas Wishlist

November 5, 2015

Here we are in November already- how crazy is that?

And with it, comes a new wishlist just in time for Christmas shopping. This year I am very much focused on things that I cannot get in the UK, both drugstore bargains as well as great high end investments.

Also I need to celebrate the fact that Sephora now ships to the UK! Obvsiouly everything comes at a price, with a minimum requirement of £75 and a delivery fee of £6, which I have to say is really not bad, considering how much you pay for the usual orders from the UK- usually around £3.95.

Anyhow, let’s get straight to it!

1

1.Kat Von D Shade + Light Eye Palette ($46 aka £30)

Lately I have become a massive fan of matte eye shadows, as I think it allows you a lot more control over the colour and you can create a more ‘proper’ look if that makes any sense, especially if you are a newbie in the whole eye make up techniques, such as myself. After spending countless hours on beauty blogs and youtube watching reviewies and looking at swatches, I was stuck between this one and Tarte’s new Tartelette (new for me at least- I think it came out mid 2015). They both are the same price, have 12 neutral eye shadows and they are both MATTE!!

However, the deal breaker for me were the tones. The Tartelette has a whole row full of mauvy/purply shades and a lot of their shadows are more cool toned, while Shade+Light has a perfect balance, with four warm shadows, four neutral and (you guessed right!) four cool tones, so it’s a lot more versatile in my eyes (no pun intended). Can’t wait to try this one out and post a full review!

 

2.Kat Von D Tattoo Liner ($19 aka £12.50)

Another Kat Von D product that I am after is her liquid eyeliner in the colour Trooper (Ink Black). Anyone who knows me will know that I am absolutely obsessed with finding the perfect black matte liquid liner. I know that a lot of people are praising this particular eyeliner, so I am absolutely dying to try it ouy! Currently bought Master Precise from Maybelline so will let you know how these two are again each other, or maybe I will write about the battle of the liquid eyeliner. So watch this space!

 

3. Kat Von D Lolita Lip Duo (£19.5 aka £12.7)

Yes, I know, I have a theme here. Another cult product from Kat Von D and probably one of the most reviewed lipsticks ever, apart from maybe Ruby Woo from Mac. We are all into the whole ‘my lips but better’ trend and the whole Kylie Jenner madness so if you can’t beat them, just join them.

This product offer 2 mini size matte liquid lipsticks, the original Lolita( so exciting as 95% of the time they are out of stock!) and the new version, which is a bit of a warmer shade, more terracota. Definitely can’t wait to try both!

 

4. Nars Blush and Bronzer duo– travel size ($24 aka £15.5)

If you stick around my blog, you will understand that I am massive fan of samples (ideally free ha) and travel size products. I love trying out products- especially the ones of the pricier side, before deciding to spend a small fortune on them. And of course, if I love them, I’ll go purchase the full size. Anyhow, I have, for a long time wanted to try both Orgasm (best blush ever they say) as well as Laguna (again a lot of hype around it). So what better way than this really well priced duo?

 

5. Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer– travel size ($21 aka £13.65)

This is the same kind of story as the Nars duo. The tinted moisturizer, which has been around for a while, is something that I would love to try, but I am not much of a light coverage girl, so I don’t want to commit before sampling. Also the price is quite good for a 30 ml version.

 

2

6. Nars Creamy Concealer – travel size ($12 aka £7.80)

As a girl with really heavy dark circles which unfortunately are hereditary and have a lot to do with my super thin skin (literally!), concealer is my must have product, something that I don’t like leaving the house without. Currently I swear by my Collection one combined with few other products, but I just HAD to try this one, which is meant to be a holy grail to a lot of people. Unfortunately in the travel size, they only have two colours but I think the darker one should be quite suitable. Again, I will update you once  I will get it :)

 

7. Boscia Perfectly Poreless Collection ($39 aka £25)

Besides all the amazing make up that I found on Sephora – and believe me, there is SO MUCH that I have not written about- there is the skincare! One of the brands that grabbed my attention was Boscia, with their black sleek packaging. Also I read some amazing reviews on the cleanser, which in the UK is £34 (!!)  so I think this exclusive limited edition set is incredible value. Plus you get a charcoal sponge which is supposed to make all the difference! #excited

 

8.Cinema Secrets Make up Brush Cleaner – 60ml version ($8 aka 5.20)

Again, a holy grail product for a lot of beauty blogger and youtubers Also, on makeupalley it has a score of 4.6 which has definitely convinced me! This spray is perfect for using in between uses for all your brushes and for a fiver, what more could you really wish for?  

 

9. First Aid Beauty Lip Therapy ($12 aka £7.80)

The Starks are always right eventually-  winter IS coming! And with it, must come the heavy duty lip balms. As a massive lipstick obsessed person, I need to care for my lips a lot every day, and I am still looking for the perfect, super hydrating, nice smelling, thick lip balm that I could apply day or night, that will change my life forever. And I hope that this little one could be the miracle that I’ve been waiting for. To be continued…

 

10.Sephora Cream Lip Stain ($14 aka £9)

Last but definitely not least, the Sephora Liquid Lipsticks. They have 14 delicious colours to choose from, with most of them being matte, which seems to be the case with A LOT of lip products coming out lately- not that I am complaining, love the texture and finish! I am not a massive fan of pink and also it’s hard to realize from the swatches how they would look on mye (my lips are quite pink and pigmented naturally plus I have a weid in between skintone) so I think I will go for Always Red- 01, which is a classic red for a polished every day look.

 

So… This is it for my wishlist and I will make sure to make a haul once I get all these and any other little beauties.

 

Let me know what you guys are after from Sephora these days and if you have any recommendations!

 

 

Cheers,

C.
