Hauling again...Few things from Sephora

I actually bought these products last weekend but I didn't get a chance to make a post. I felt great coming home with my new stuff and then the guilty feeling comes afterward.
I went to Sephora to return the Dior lash primer that I bought not long ago. I felt like it wasn't really working for me and that I don't find myself reaching for it so I might as well get something that will be more useful for me. A co-worker also gave me a Sephora gift card, so I was also looking forward to use it. I must've spend at least an hour inside Sephora going back and forth with what I'm going to get, focusing primarily on what I actually need.

After falling in love with the Boscia Eye Treatment, I was very eager to try more of their product. I was in need of a night cream so I bought the Restorative Night Moisture Cream. One thing I don't like about the packaging is that it's quite bulky for a 1 oz product. However, it's packaged differently than most facial creams. You basically pump the product out of there, which is very neat and I really like that. I hate digging my finger in a jar and getting the cream stuck between in my fingernails. That's one of my pet peeves.

Here is what this product claims to do...quoting from the packaging "a rich hydrating cream that delivers high levels of intense moisture overnight while it helps diminish the appearance of uneven skin tone, dullness, and fine lines". I've used this ever since last weekend and so far, I've been loving it. The cream feels rich but absorbs quickly and does not leave a greasy feeling behind. I love how my skin feels after using it. The texture of it is soooo silky smooth. I also like the fact that it is scent-free. So no funky or overpowering scent to worry about. This cream retails for $48.00.

The last time I tried to get this Benefit cream shadow, it was sold out. Fortunately, this time I was able to grab very the last one on the shelf. Benefit cream shadows are among the best on the market. They do not crease or budge and are long-wearing. Those qualities are difficult to find in cream shadows.
It's quite pigmented, applies smoothly, and easy to blend. Retail price is $19.00.

Tidal Rave is a shade exclusive to Sephora. It's a muted teal with gold shimmers. It's so pretty and I can see why it flies off the shelf fast.

Following Teena Z's post, I had to get my hands on this palette. I have been saving my points for something worth getting and finally this was it! First off, this is not something you can buy off the shelf. It's a palette exclusive to Sephora and only for Beauty Insiders who have 500+ points.
They've combined two eyeshadows from each of Too Faced palettes (Natural Eye, Smoky Eye, Naked Eye, and Romantic Eye) and put them in here. Secondly, I love the packaging of this so much better because it's not as bulky as the original palettes. They have also included a mini sample size Too Faced Shadow Insurance.

The eyeshadows are very pigmented, especially the shimmery ones. The range of these colors make them wearable for either day or night.
  • Heaven is a matte nude color, which almost didn't show up on the picture because it blends so well with my skin
  • Push-Up is a shimmery bronze
  • Silver Spoon is a metallic silver with blue undertones
  • Smolder is a matte black
  • Satin Sheets is a shimmery rose gold. This shade is slightly sheer
  • Like a Virgin is a medium brown with grey undertone
  • Honey Moon is a muted shimmery gold with a green undertone
  • Ever After is shimmery brown with a bit of red undertone to it
Hope you enjoyed my little splurge.
