I've accumulated some things over this month and thought I'd share them with you! I'll also include mini reviews! I'm currently trying out some products I ordered from Sephora, so that will be posted later. Speaking of Sephora... I didn't get the job. :( It was a Sephora located inside of JcPenney so I interviewed with people going for JcPenney jobs, which I hated. I dressed professionally in a business suit basically while these two other girls had leggings on! They wore their leggings as pants.. I like wearing leggings with my butt being covered! I got eliminated after round 1 and since it was only three of us going for the Sephora position, I'm pretty sure the 28 yr old Ulta manager got the position. The other girl also had a good amount of experience. I hate how people don't take a chance on me due to not having enough experience. I'm grateful I was at least able to get a interview. I felt as though someone had taken my heart that is filled with such a love for makeup and crushed it. I felt like such crap and was thinking maybe I don't belong in the beauty industry.
The experience has only made me stronger. I may not know what I want to do as a career, but I have such a love for cosmetics. I won't let anyone take that away from me or put me down.
At Ulta I picked up a NYX lipstick in "Electra" and Anastasia Beverly Hills brow whiz in "Brunette". I then went to Target and bought a EOS lip balm in "Strawberry Sorbet." I heard a lot of people raving about them. I also picked up some Maybelline Clean Express makeup remover wipes.
NYX lipstick in "Electra"- I've been wanting to venture into red lipsticks and found this one at my local Ulta. It's very creamy and pigmented. The bad side is it can be messy. It lasts a good amount of time on and it later just stains my lips. It also makes my teeth appear whiter! It's a blue toned red btw! I like it much better than the MAC one I bought, which will be posted about later in week! ($3.99)
Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz in "Brunette"- I had been using Elf's brow kit for the longest, but kept hearing good things about this so I picked it up. One end is a retractable tip while the other end is a spoolie brush. The tip is slim and does a great job at creating a natural brow. If you have fuller brows this is perfect for you! I have less thinner brows and find the pencil good for making it look like I have hairs there. Surprisingly it stays long on me through the day. ($21)
|What they actually look like :o|
|In reference to my brows lol.|
EOS lip balm in "Strawberry Sorbet"- My last lip balm had finished and fell off, so I was in need of a new one. They had a lot of choices to choose from at Target, so I picked up strawberry sorbet. It smells amazing and is moisturizing! ($2.99)
