Retail Therapy

So lets see... what do I do when I get stressed or upset...just guess! Yoga? Dance? Nope... S-h-o-... did you figure it out? SHOPPING! Sephora may or may not have had a full month of deals this last month; I just so happened to take them up on one of their special offers! When they offered a Dior sample set with any order, I JUMPED on it. Yep-jumped. Here are the things I bought [and I am only showing this because it's super fast for me! Hopefully you all enjoy shopping posts : ) ] **Warning: a lot of pictures!

Does anyone else feel like it's Christmas when you get a package in the mail? 
(Sorry this is so washed out!)

Save that tissue paper! This kind is a decent one for making your own 
oil blotting sheets that I wrote about here.

The samples I got! Gucci Flora perfume, Dior Addict Extreme Lipstick, Korres Mattifying Primer, Dior Tattoos (I won't be using those ha), Dior Skin Boosting Super Serum, Murad Oil Control Moisturizer, and DiorShow Eyelash Primer. 

 Some of the products out of package.

I put the Mac lipstick in the photo for a size comparison. The lipstick I received as sample is a decent size. Definitely not full size, but I would compare its size to the Original Softlips Lip Balm if you know what that is!

Both nail tools were only $3! Could not pass that up. I also bought a mineral blush (Sephora Brand), eyeshadow palette (Sephora Brand) and a Baked Powder Foundation (Sephora Brand). Since my Laura Mercier Powder is quickly running out, I was looking for a cheaper alternative... but sadly, NOTHING compares!

Opened packing! The eyeshadow palette, foundation, and blush.

Blush swatches; the fair right, more pigmented swatch is both shades mixed! Very nice blush : )

A cheesy shot with the Dior Lipstick. It is actually a shade that is between red & pink. I have it on very lightly, and it still is pigmented. Such a nice quality lipstick, and it makes me want a real, full sized one (in a different shade!) which is bad, since they are so expensive! However, even after the shine from the lipstick has wore off, a stain of color is still left on your lips. 

I dyed my hair also, can you tell? : )
