Sephora Haul

We all have happy places. Places that make you feel happier and calmer just for walking in. For most people, I would imagine that would be their bed, Hawaii,…or anywhere coffee is served. I have several happy places and one of them is most definitely Sephora. There’s something about the moment when I first pass through those doors: the waft of perfume, the beautifully arranged aisles, the bustle of other happy customers. It’s a moment of simultaneous calm and excitement with just the slightest hint of guilt over my impending destitution. No matter what mood I’m in when I first enter that mecca of beauty aficionados, I always leave in a better one. Does anyone else feel this way about Sephora?… Just me? Moving on.

Well, as you might have guessed by the title, I took a trip to my happy place yesterday with three products on my wish list: Becca Ever-Matte Poreless Priming Perfector, Marc Jacobs Genius Gel Super-charged foundation, and Bumble & Bumble Dryspun Finish. I’ve heard amazing things about all three and thought it high time to give them a whirl. To say I was successful in my quest would be an understatement. I was doomed the moment I decided to stop for some quick sniffs in the fragrance department. Here’s a quick rundown of the products that sneakily made it home with me and will be appearing in reviews in the near future!
