Sephora Haul: Spring Makeup

When I die, I really hope there is a Sephora in heaven. I tell you every time I step foot in the place I get chills of excitement being surrounded by such yummy goodness!
 Since spring is here, I felt like I needed a change, especially in the blush department. I ended up getting a new liquid foundation and lipstick as well!

Benefit's Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Brightening Makeup SPF 25 PA "Toasted Beige" Oil Free
  • Helps to boost cellular respiration for a "Plumping Up" effect
  • Helps to protect against environmental stresses
  • Contains vitamin C & E derivatives known to prevent signs of aging

I have been addicted to Bare Minerals foundation for years. I have combination skin and I loved the way Bare Minerals did not make me shiny. I told the makeup artist there that I wanted to try something different. She raved about Benefit's new liquid foundation. She applied this to my skin and I was a bit amazed. It really feels like nothing is on the skin. My skin could breathe and it blended in with my skin tone perfectly! I suffer from hormonal breakouts along my jaw line from time to time and it covered my discolorations in one application!

What I love about this:
  • My skin can breathe
  • Spreads on smooth
  • Buildable coverage
  • Added SPF
  • Skin looks natural

Buxom True Hue Blush " Euphoria"
  • Sheer buildable hue.
  • Contains Rhiodiola- an arctic plant root that makes cheeks appear refreshed, allowing them to come alive with color.

I had never bought anything from Buxom before, but as I was browsing, the cheek colors caught my eye. They were so vibrant and pretty! I ended up choosing the color Euphoria, a coral , light ,peachy color. When I tried it on I was sold. It gave me an enhanced flush that I get on a hot summers day. It glides on silky and a little goes a long way.

What I love about this:
  • Very silky on the skin
  • Color is true
  • Cute packaging

Benefit's Silky-Finish Lipstick " Swoonderful"

This color is the first lipstick I've tried and absolutely love! It feels like I'm applying chapstick and gives me such a natural color with out bogging down my lips!  Swoonderful is a purplish, mauve color and perfect for daytime.

What I love about this:
  • Easy application
  • Long wearing
  • Moisturizing
  • Hint of shimmer
  • Everyday wear

I am really happy with what I picked up, especially with that blush color, Euphoria. I plan on buying more from the Buxom blush range.

Have you tried Buxom products? Do you have any recommendations?
