I May Have Gone Crazy

So I had this weird TREAT YOSELF moment where I bought everything in Sephora I have been wanting. After I received everything, I realized I must have been in a huge skin care mood because I bought a lot of skincare. I also purchase two palettes I needed in my life.

This is my buyer’s remorse therapy.

Let’s dive in!

Dr. Jart Rubber Mask

I bought this for no other reason than it looked weird as hell. I can’t say I have ever used a rubber mask before but it sounds intriguing. I am going to save this one for a bit because it requires 30-45 minutes and I rarely have that kind of time. I did want y’all to see it’s packaging though since it is what made me purchase it. You actually have two components to the mask – the rubber mask and then the little pot of product you put on your face and put the mask on top. It got great reviews and I am excited to see if I look like a baby after this with my new youthful, rejuvenated skin.

Tatcha Luminous Dewy Skin Mask

I loved this when it came in the jan 2019 Boxycharm I believe. It makes your skin feel so refreshed and moisturized. The smell is divine and instantly improves the feel of your skin. They are just so expensive! I bought a 4-pack since I love them so much and cannot wait to use them….although I will be devastated when they are gone.

Tatcha Dewy Skin Cream

This is simply divine. The most shocking part about this is that you use such small amount of product and it covers your entire face – literally you use a pearl size amount of the product. This seriously has so much hydration that you legit get the most beautiful dewy effect you can dream of. I am in love with everything about this product from the packaging, the insert that comes on this really beautiful paper, to the way it makes my skin feel. The only thing is that this is a very expensive cream…but that’s just Tatcha. I really feel like you are getting what you pay for in this.

I mean look at this cute little gold spatula you get to use to put the product on. Isn’t that motivation enough to buy this?!

Clinique Moisture Surge

I actually got a sample of this from Sephora Play and really loved it. I guess it was a bad idea since I literally just purchased the Tatcha cream, but hey, I can have really nice skin now. The thing I love about this is that it almost feels silicone based which makes your skin feel velvety smooth. I can 100000% say that it really does make your skin feel super hydrated for a decent amount of time. I can’t vouch for 72 hours because I wash my face/do my skincare routine twice a day, but I loved it enough to buy a full size product at full price. That’s saying something.

Clinique All About Eyes Rich

I bought this because I had said a million times that I suffer from severe dark circles. The reviews on Sephora said that it helped other people with their dark circles so hopefully it’ll help mine too!

SK-II Sheet Mask

I’ve heard this brand is a great skincare brand, but I have never tried anything from them and now is my chance. This is SOAKED in product and smells delightful. Is there anything more relaxing than putting a soaking wet sheet mask on your face knowing you’re about to look beautiful? No. There is nothing better. This mask is heaven. It might tie with my Tatcha ones. I actually think I noticed a little bit of a tightening effect from this too which I actually enjoy – give me a nice face lift in a mask and I will be eternally grateful. Everyone should try this mask out! The quality cannot be stated enough in this blog. You seriously just need to put one on your face!

GlamGlow Lace Sheet Mask

Again, I purchased this because I liked how it looked. Is there anything more glamorous than your face being covered in lace? Maybe your face being covered in gold. Anyways, this has hyaluronic acid, green tea, and caffeine. That sounds like a lovely combination for my face – Lord knows I can use an extra boost of caffeine from any source.

This mask is a little annoying for a sheet mask. It comes in two separate parts – an upper eye mask and a lower mouth mask. The lower part kept sliding down my face as I wore it unless I was lying down…..which prevents me from watching Grey’s Anatomy. It was very saturated with product, smells very nice and fresh (I think it might be the green tea). This made my skin feel hydrated but not energized like they claim. Am I mad about it? No. Is this a game changer for me? No, but I am happy to try it out. I just don’t dig the two separate parts.

Next we will get into some makeup I purchased!

Anastasia Beverly Hills Riviera Palette

I have been watching this ever since I saw the ads for the launch. I really just wanted this for the blue shade but when I opened and swatched, I fell in love with every shade! No joke, it’s stunning.

I love the texture out the outer packing. I always have such an internal struggle about if I want to keep the box it came in as well, but I have to be an adult and get over it.

Here is the top row from left to right. Can you believe the pigment in these swatches?!?! I AM OBSESSED!

Bottom row from left to right. I still cannot believe the pigment in the matte shades as well.

Let me see if I can throw together a look for y’all!

I really wanted to use the blue shade in this palette but I didn’t want it to be too extravagant! I looked up a tutorial on YouTube and found Makeup by Serena Cleary. OH MY GOD SHES AMAZING!!!

I used the shades: palm (crease), coastline (crease and lid), sails (inner corner), yacht (center of lid), seychelles (bottom lash line).

Ok, this looks nothing like her look BUT I tried! I suck at makeup anyways. I could have probably used more pigment in the lower lashes but I didn’t want it to be too in your face with color. This is a very day to day look I would wear!

And now, on to my next insane purchase.

Huda Beauty New Nude Palette

I have been looking at this palette for quite a while. I love nude shades and the shimmer shades I have seen swatched in this are to die for. Let’s open her up!


Is there anything more glamorous than this packaging? Maybe my face after I put every shade on it.

You guys. The protector is beautiful too!

Can we all just soak this in for a second? I think I might be in love. This might be me in a palette. Classy, glitzy but not too crazy, neutral but glamourous. This is me.

Let’s swatch these!

Here is the top row from left to right. I did two views of this so you can see the dimension and depth of these shades.

Again, the top row with full light.

Middle row from left to right in full light.

Middle row from left to right in more shaded lighting.

Bottom row from left to right in full light. The top shade is actually a concealer (aptly named ‘Concealed’) which is a nice touch to add into palette.

Bottom row from left to right in more shaded lighting.

Let me see if I can throw something on my eyes for y’all.

I think it’s pretty enough and there are so many options for looks in this palette. The pigments are so beautiful and blend like a dream.

And here are the samples I chose for my purchase. I redeemed a lot of points because YOLO.

These are some strong scented things! The Aerin perfume sample is amazingly floral…but I also felt like an old woman wearing it. The Biossance smells like an old ash tray….

So, there it is. My very large (expensive) purchase from Sephora. I don’t know what got into me. I should have probably thought about the amount of facial creams and eye creams I have, but whatever, I need to look beautiful forever.

    Hahaha putting these haul posts together is totally buyer’s remorse therapy! I get exactly what you mean! 😛

    That rubber mask seems so interesting. I cannot wait to hear your thoughts on it once you have time to use it!

    Tatcha’s packaging is seriously to die for. That mini spatula is the cutest thing ever, ever!!

    I don’t think there is anything more relaxing than using a sheet mask. 😉 The lace one seems so weird, I will remember to stay away from it!

    I love both palettes you chose. That Huda Beauty’s packaging/protective slip is so awesome & the looks you created are gorg!!!

    Also, loling about your last sentence. I’m with you!! 😂
