Sephora Spree!

I was sick last week and had to stay at home really bored, so I did a little online shopping at my favorite place in the world - Sephora! I wanted to try some new brands I've never used before (except for my DiorShow mascara which no other brand can touch). So, I decided to try Smashbox High Definition Healthy FX foundation, and I really like it. This foundation is often used on photoshoots, TV, movies, etc., and there's a wide range of shades making it easy to match your skin tone. Great staying power and goes on nicely.

I also got the Chanel Liquid Eyeshadow. You brush it on as a liquid and it dries to a powder. It's very shimmery. One of my new favorites (I got #60, it's a nice neutral brown).

Another new brand I tried is Laura Gellar. Since this winter is all about the green eyeshadow, I picked up the Sweet Pea duo, and it goes on beautifully. The lighter shade is shimmery, and the darker is a wearable green that's classy not clownish.

I'm not too impressed with the NARS powder. I like a little more coverage. Not really much to say about it except to not waste your money. The best powder by far is Bare Minerals. The quality is much better and so is the price.

However, NARS does make The Multiple which i LOVE. The Multiple is very versatile. You can use it as a blush/highlighter, a highlighter for the browbone, and I use my Maldives Multiple on my lips sometimes. There's a lot of shades to choose from and they last a long time, so it's worth the money.

Benefit's Benetint is a lip/cheek stain that's been around since the '70s. It looks really red, but it actually goes on very sheer and is super easy to blend.

I like the NARS brand lipstick. I was looking for a nude shade and bought Belle du Jour. It's pretty and lasts a long time, but it's expensive. I actually like the Sephora brand lipstick better. It's goes on smoothly and tastes like strawberries. It lasts a long time too. And the price is much better than NARS.

One of my latest obsessions is body scrubs. I have tried all kinds - Bath & Body Works, DermaDoctor, Sephora, etc., but I like Body Delisse by Lancome the best. It smells great and my skin was still soft & smooth when I woke up this morning.

I also got the chance to sample Gwen Stefani's new scent "L", and I love it! This is one to add to the collection. It has a peachy floral smell with notes of Fresh Green Notes, Water Hyacinth, White Freesia, Fresh Pear, Violet Leaves, Jasmine Petals, Rose, Muget, Sweet Pea, Orange Blossom, Heliotrope Flower, Sensual Musk, Frangipani Blossom, Peach Skin.

I also love "Daisy" by Marc Jacobs. It's a very simple floral with notes of Strawberry, Violet Leaves, Ruby Red Grapefruit, Gardenia, Violet Petals, Jasmine Petals, Musk, Vanilla, White Woods.
