Beauty Indulgence!


I “committed” a beauty indulgence yesterday! I spent +200 $ in makeup! How that happened??? I went to Ulta and Sephora (dangerous places) and it was like disneyland for a little girl. I wanted everything! πŸ˜† Do I feel guilty about it? Nop! Because it makes me happy and I’m not bankrupt YET! HA! πŸ˜‰ Okay. At least I was rational, everything I got there had a reason (a good deal or I read good reviews of it).

Urban Decay 24/7 glide on eye pencil set. Each full size pencil costs $17 and this set is $29.

from left to right: Anastasia perfect eyebrow pencil ($22), 2 Benefit full-finish lipstick ($ 18 each), Benefit blue mascara (free), another mascara free sample from sephora

These are the best lipstick I’ve ever had! It’s soooo moisturized! I HAD to have two!

Urban decay Sustainable Shadow box: it’s gorgeous, it’s loaded with Eyeshadows, and it’s eco-friendly! TEN dynamic Eyeshadows, a cruelty-free Eyeshadow brush, AND a travel size bottle of Eyeshadow Primer Potion. ($36)

Best eyelush curler for asian girls (Uma Sherma $19) and Tweezerman ($15)

Boots eye makeup remover (these are from Target $5-6 each, I read a good review of it) and Elizabeth Arden’s day moisturize. The most expensive purchase of the day ($55). It’s supposed to be the best moisturizer for my skin type according to this book.

  1. Wow that’s a ton of make up!! I’m glad you’re enjoying your Glow resolution!

    I can’t remember the last shopping indulgence I had. I almost bought two coats the day after Thanksgiving but remember that I don’t actually have money so I put them back… I’ve kicked myself daily for not getting them 😦

    Beauty product reviews would be great!

  2. Wohooo!!! Well done grasshopper!  If youre going to drop a lot of money on beauty products this is the time to do it – I spend insane amounts of sephora several times a year!

  3. Sephora IS a dangerous place!!!
    that shadow box looks very cool, I like it πŸ˜€ so you decide to put the make up every day? haha
    Glad you had a wonderful splurge day on your beauty products , worth every penny of it! haha
    btw the green oats looks awesome , I’ll try to make it !

  4. i am SO jelous of all of your goodies!! i love sephora!! and love all your eats!

    my fav frozen fruit: MANGO πŸ™‚

  5. Your purchases are really fantastic, I especially love the pretty sustainable shadow box! Your eats look INCREDIBLE today! Your tofu/broccoli burgers are brilliant! I’ll be making them soon. πŸ™‚

  7. Yeah! So glad you found some good makeup, and good for you for going all out and spending some money, as makeup isn’t something you want to do cheaply. I would love to see a makeup review form you, for sure.

    The broccoli/tofu burgers look fantastic. I wonder if Nick would eat THOSE…..hmmm…that may be pushing it. He isn’t a fan of tofu, maybe one day!

    My favorite frozen fruit has to be frozen blueberries, which I add to my cereal in the morning.

    Thanks for your kind comment on my blog πŸ™‚ I remember those days I always posted about mushrooms and balsamic! Now I barely ever eat mushrooms, so sad 😦

  8. So glad I found your blog! Your food is very interesting and I love your glow resolution!

  9. oh man! so much new makeup!

    and i love blueberries and raspberries…frozen and fresh! nom!

  10. Due to my smoothie addiction, I have MUCH experience with frozen fruit. Favorites are mango and cherries!

  11. CoCo you are SO cute!! I love the make up on you!! You did an awesome job. I am just BAD at anything other than eye liner!! I would love to read some reviews on makeup. I always feel so lost in stores like ulta and sephora because there’s SO much to choose from I don’t know where to start!! Everything you bought sounds like a good deal, but $200 is quite a bit!! More than your monthly grocery bill? Hahaha

  12. I love all the make up you bought! And you sure did get some great deals….

  13. so much goodies you got!! you will love it all πŸ™‚ sephora is the best go to makeup store for everything, and urban decay ROCKS!

    fav frozen fruit is frozen raspberries or cherries! they have an awesome berry mix from TJ’s that has rasp, blueberries and cherries in one I am obsessssed with it… have a great day girl!

  14. You got so much great makeup! How fun! I could go crazy in those stores! My favorite frozen fruit is blueberries!

  15. Ahhh make-up heaven! Love it all!

    I haven’t had a really great shopping trip in a while–I think one may be in order!

  16. Haha, yes I am known to indulge in beauty products. I spent a similar amount of money right before school started to stock up my makeup supply. TOTALLY worth it! πŸ™‚

    MMmmm… your peach dessert looks FABULOUS!

    xxoo
    Heather

  17. oh wow! your loot looks gorgeous πŸ˜€
    It is wonderful to treat yourself. Enjoy!
    xoxo

  18. I admire your attitude about spending to make yourself happy. πŸ™‚ I want freebie makeup~ The design of that Urban Decay eye shadow box is gorgeous, and so are the colors! lol, yeah, eyelash curlers for Asian girls. πŸ˜‰ You look beautiful!

    My last shopping indulgence was… during the summer. I think I spent $90. Which means that it wasn’t really an “indulgence” per se… Fav frozen fruit = PINEAPPLE, although i’ve never had frozen peaches before, and they look pretty tasty!

  19. ah man, you know that they say — beauty is pain (at least to your wallet) I feel ya girl.. I have been known to throw down 40 dollars on bronzer. Curse you sephora!

  20. Looks like you got some great makeup products! I can already tell a difference from your photos. Beautiful!

    I use a pb jar lid to make my black bean burgers, too! πŸ™‚

  21. That’s a lot of make up! I’m glad you had fun shopping! πŸ™‚

    Have a wonderful time with your best friend in Germany!

  22. How fun!! It looks like you got some awesome products. It’s necessary to splurge on yourself once in awhile : )

  23. I don’t shop…unless it’s for food. πŸ˜‰ You’ve seen the way I dress… simple, and all from the bargain section! lol!

    Fave frozen fruit = banana and grapes!

    OH, and LOVE your tofu/broccoli burgers…they look great!

  24. That Elizabeth Arden moisturizer is great (I love quite a few of their moisturizers actually) and I love Benefit mascara. Sephora is way too much fun.
