So today is the grand opening of Sephora in Colorado Springs! The first 200 people in line get gift cards ranging from $25-$2000!! Now the $2000 was a long shot but hey! $25 Gift Card made me happy! Free money is always great lol. Anyways, I went with my friend Mandi aka The Lovely Nerds. and we hung out for 2 hours waiting to get our GCs, and chatted. It was definitely a blast for me because I'm going to miss her!! Who will I shop with when I move??? Or just hang out with in general??? lol. Now if you're interested in seeing what I got then keep on reading......
First up the makeup items! I was able to grab the KVD Mi Vida Loca Palette. I kept going back and forth on this one, but since the UD build your own palette wasn't available there=/ Then I finally got Urban Decay 24/7 eyeliner in Perversion and NARS Larger than Life Long-wear Eyeliner in Rue Bonaparte. Perversion is a highly pigmented and very creamy black, while Rue Bonaparte is a nice creamy beige color. I heard many ups and downs about Perversion but I like to test things for myself and let my readers know my experience. Then I really wanted the Benefit Porefessional primer, so I got a set that came with a travel size Erase Paste in No.2 and a travel size Girl Meets Pearl for $31. They had the Porefessionals by itself, but the set was like $2 more and I needed a new Erase Paste lol.
Here's everything out of the boxes.
Kat Von D Mi Vida Loca Palette Eyeshadow Colors; L-R: Altruism, Sparklehorse, Dublin, Mad Max, Drama For Yo Mama, No Regrets, Marya, and Swan Song. The palette also cam with a travel size Autograph Pencil in Wonderchild.
Swatches of everything; L-R: same as above along with Wonderchild, Perversion and Rue Bonaparte.
Overall first impression of the palette, shadows are nicely pigmented and smooth. Great blend-ability, and wonderful color selection.
Now for miscellaneous items; I chose to get the Sephora Daily Brush Cleaner to just try out and I'll do a later review on that after I've tested it out. Next I just got a basic sharpener since my son hid all of mine which I'll probably find during packing lol, then I got a little Tweezerman Slanted Tweezers since all of mine are crap and I lost my other slanted one, and lastly I got a Precision Pore Cleansing Pad; now I love my Sephora exfoliator but I wanted to give this a try.
And lastly for spending $50 or more they would give you a Sephora Tote Bag which I love! and will definitely get use out of, and a Sephora Advanced Airbrush Set as a surprise gift! I love it all but then again who doesn't love free stuff? Especially brushes lol.
L-R: Powder, Precision Foundation, Concealer, Crease, and Shadow.
Well I hope you enjoyed reading. If you're in Colorado Springs check it out! It's at The Promenade Shops at Briargate! And so everyone knows, I did buy all of this with my own money and shall I say money well spent for me lol. Till next time, take care^_^
