(REUPLOAD) Anti-Holiday 2016: Exploring Sephora’s Complexion Line

IMAG4877

 

Purely on the flimsiest of whims, I walked into Sephora and walked out with a bunch of their new complexion products. The complexion line has recently been revamped, I tried the blushes earlier this year and loved them, so I was really enthusiastic that the rest would be great as well. I picked up two of the Bright Future Serum Concealer and one of the Serum Correctors, and the new (relatively) 10 Hour Wear Perfect Foundation. The one thing that I didn’t get was the Micro Smooth Baked Foundation Face Powder. It’s supposedly a dupe for the Mac Mineralise Skin Finish, but they didn’t have a shade for me, I was in between shades.

(REUPLOAD) Holiday 2016: Sephora Collection

Sephora’s holiday sets are as pretty as they are prolific this year. These two babies were available for early access to VIB and VIB Rouge so I was able to snag them before they went on general sale. In addition to these two, there is another face palette, a blush palette, lip sets, lip and eye pencils and a host of other things. Some of which I picked up on Sunday morning from the website.

I had gotten most of the Sephora Holiday items last year and was pretty much completely disappointed in all of it since it all lacked pigmentation. Happy to say that’s not the case this year.

(REUPLOAD) The Year in Makeup Favourites 2016.

Happy freaking new year ya’ll!! I promise in 2017, I’m gonna get my blogging life together. Maybe. Ok, probably not but I’m gonna try real hard. This year was just a complete a-hole that you wanted to throat punch constantly, and it ended with George Michael dying on frikkin CHRISTMAS DAY!!! Like, what the actual F%$K 2016?!

I drove to my sisters house jamming to Last Christmas (best Christmas song EVER), and came home to Twitter on fire. I always snicker when I hear people upset about celebrities that die, like what the hell, do you even know them? Can I just say though?

This one hurt, really badly. I’m sure he’d never remember me, but not only have I been absolutely in love with George Michael since I was ten, but I’ve met him a few times when I was working for a magazine and wound up repeatedly at NYFW much to my dismay.

He was friends with the original super models and a slew of the designers so he could usually be seen in the tents in the early 90’s. Talk about a ridiculously kind, humble, personable individual that always seemed slightly uncomfortable with the adulation he received. Beyond that, there was just some indefinable quality about his music, post Faith after he found his own voice, that’s simultaneously uplifting and despairing. Listen Without Prejudice Vol. I is still my favourite album. So really, is anyone reealllyy sad to see 2016 go?
