Too Faced Peach Leopard Bronzer

The Too Faced Pink Leopard bronzer is wildly popular on various makeup boards. It's not only pretty to look at, it blends shades of pink and bronze for a more natural look. If you found this shade too light, too pink or just prefer warm tones, Too Faced has released a new peach version. How pretty does this look? It's available now at Sephora if you have a holiday gift card just burning a hole in your pocket.

Manicure of the Week

This is Illamasqua Viridian, a gorgeous blackened emerald with multidimensional shimmer. The lasting power is unimpressive, but the color is unique and divine!

Sephora Haul

Because I just can't stop shopping! Despite having just spent my $20 VIB gift card in-store, I placed a Sephora order the other night. The 500 point VIB gift was a full size Benefit Coralista and mini Bad Gal mascara and I was powerless to resist! I ended up with:

  • Jurlique Lavender Hand Cream- very expensive at $25 for a mere 1.4 oz but my hands are a veritable mess from the cold!
  • Illamsqua Nail Polish in Verdigris- an shimmery emerald that I can't wait to wear on my fingers and toes!
  • Tarte MultiplEYE Lash Enhancing Primer- finally, a "healthy" eye lash primer
  • Benefit High Beam- the $10 size
My order already shipped!

What I Bought This Weekend

I went to the Limelight Market in Chelsea to pick up the full sizes of the Om Aroma skincare products I've been using since Black Friday. I had plenty left in all but the toning mist, but the mini sizes I've been using will be perfect for travel and you receive a discount for purchasing the whole set of products. My products came in what must be the old packaging--jars instead of pumps. At first I was disappointed since I prefer pumps for hygienic reason, but there is something a little luxe about dipping your fingers into a a small jar of a precious unguent! The founder of the line was working the store and remembered my from last time. I'm really liking these products!

For those who haven't been, Limelight is an old church that was converted to a small, quaint shopping center. They have amazing food, beauty, accessory and jewelry shops. In addition to OM Aroma, there is also Face Stockholm, Sue Devitt, The Avery Perfumes and more.

I also had my Sephora VIB $20 off a $40 purchase gift card burning a hole in my pocket and despite needing no makeup whatsoever, I picked up a Lancome Artliner in Aubergine (which is limited for the holidays according to the Sephora display) and Sephora Collection Retractable Waterproof Lip Liner in Nude (a light pinky beige). The lip liner was $12 which I think is expensive for the Sephora brand. I really wanted Illamasqua Nail Polish in Viridian but unfortunately they were all sold out!

Manicure Of The Week

I present my super-dry-hands-and-cuticles manicure of the week! This week a resurrected a favorite from last holiday season, Sephora by OPI 212-Sephora. This is a smokey black shade with copper flecks and rainbow shimmer. It's very festive and pretty on short nails without being a typical seasonal metallic red. It's different and pretty and always elicits positive comments.

Quick Brush Rave

In case anybody is scouring trying in vain to find something to buy with their VIB gift certificate, I thought I'd share my most recent brush acquisition. It's the Sephora Collection Professional Mineral Powder Brush #45. This synthetic brush is just $26 but is worth at least double in my opinion. I recently started using Bare Escentuals Matte Foundation just in my T-Zone to even out my complexion (ahhh...aging. I never needed coverage before!) and this brush applies it perfectly. I get decent coverage that looks natural without the buffing buffing buffing that BE brushes require. The brush is dense but soft and would work with any pressed or loose mineral foundation as well as bronzer or blush. Check it out!
