"To me, beauty and makeup and color is like the finishing touch on everything."

I feel like I've started at least half my blog posts with something along the lines of "sorry for my prolonged absence!"  But I'll quickly fill you in anyway, because it makes me feel slightly less guilty.  School was crazy because of an ongoing strike, extended and amended projects and tests, but at least it's over.  And the day after my final exam, while I enjoying my newfound freedom, I came down with a horrible flu, and have been out of commission for about a week.  I can't ever remember feeling that horrible for such a long time.  But on the bright side?  I lost about 5lbs.  There is always a silver lining! 

During my final stressful school days and prolonged bed-ridden state, I did a fair amount of online shopping.  You probably know that it's currently the Sephora VIB Rouge sale, where all purchases are 15% off, and you get a "goody" bag of treats. 

I didn't go too crazy (one of which was a necessity--the Brow Wiz--ain't nobody got the patience to fill in their brows with powder).  It's a tried and true favourite, and I heard the final click on it, indicating there was nothing left.  What a sad sound!  I also picked up the Kat Von D Lock-it Featherweight Primer for my t-zone.  I got a sample of this, and have been loving it!  I'll do a review once I've fully tried it out.

And then comes the fun stuff! I'm a huge fan of Tarte Cosmetics, and if you're as oddly addicted to Sephora's website as I am, then you would have noticed the 3 new palettes from the brand.  I opted for this one (obviously), and I'm so glad that I did!  So far, it's getting the best reviews online too, probably because this one comes with the most product, and has the nicest packaging (a shiny gold metal casing--swoon).  I've been using the shadows for the last few days, and they are so pigmented and wearable.  I've only tried two of the colours, but I can't wait to experiment with it more!  The other two are available here and here.

Lastly, I grabbed another Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Fearless, and a Clinique Chubby Stick in Mighty Mimosa, just for fun! Because who doesn't love a pop of pink or two for the spring. 

Have you taken advantage of the Sephora sale recently?  Let me know what you picked up! 

Until next time,

Happy shopping,

xoxo K
