Small Sephora Haul

I went to go get some tops for work at JC Penny. And of course I had to go into Sephora thats inside. I just picked up a few things....
  • On the left: Korres 3 in 1 cleanser. I have really dry skin so the MA suggested this face wash.
  • NARS nailpolish in Diamond Life. I've never purchased NARS but have heard great things. I'm a sucker for metallic purples! I think it's pretty dupable. But the formula is top notch so I think its worth it. Plus it has a full 0.5 ounces, which is more then your average polish.
  • NARS Larger Than Life eye liner in Rue De Rivoli. It's a beautiful forrest green. It's very smooth and pigmented.
  • Sephora brand clear mascara. I use it to set my brows
  • Sephora brand Purple eyepencil sharpener. Its designed to put in your makeup bag without spilling.

Sorry about the blurriness, I couldnt seem to get a good picture.

Ooooo!.... Ahhhh!

Estee Lauder's Pure Color Sequin Finish Lip Gloss in Violet Rain!

I NEED this gloss! It reminds me of the amazing dare to wear lippies that MAC released last year. I sure hope they come back cause they are my FAV lip products and I only snagged 2 of them. I think I'll be purchasing this one and the light pink one thats also being released with this. I want a couple more but just dont have the funds.

(these are NOT my photos. They are from one of my fav blogs, the lovely Christine @ Thanks for the awesome swatches as always.

Here's a link to her full review...

There are some more awesome colors! You can purchase here...

Thierry Mugler Fragrance "Alien"

Thierry Mugler's

When I order from Macys online they always put paper samples of purfumes in my box. Over the years I've tried many, this one for some reason is special. I dont know what it is about it exactly. It has such a feminine, sexy, goddess like smell. At first sniff I dug it. As the day went on I kept getting a whiff of an intoxicating scent. I figured out it was the sample sitting on the side table. It's the second day and its still lingering. At first sniff its pretty in your face (in a good way, its just strong), but the dry down makes this fragrance so wearable. The name totally fits this scent. It's like nothing I've ever smelled before...It's out of this world! haha. And get this, It's refillable!! Of course it costs money but costs less then buying a whole other bottle. I am absolutely in love with the bottle as well! And it being purple is the icing on the cake. I can wait to finish my coach poppy purfume (which is saying a lot cause its one of my favs) so I can snatch this one up! I hope that the actual purfume is as good as I'm hoping it is. But if it has this kind of effect just by a paper sample, I think this will be one I'll wear for years to come.

Here's the description from the sephora website...
Discover Alien, radiant and mysterious, the elixir of absolute femininity. Be seduced by the soothing solar energy of this extraordinary fragrance from elsewhere. Luminous like a brilliant solar flower, the fragrance exudes a positive energy, charged with mystery. Evoking the scent of wood warmed by intense sunlight, Alien is sensual and intriguing, yet as soft and rich as the caress of cashmere.
Notes:Solar Accord, Jasmine Sambac, Green Notes, Cashmeran, Vanilla, Transparent Amber.
Mysterious. Soothing. Magnetic.
