Motherhood is hard, makeup doesn't have to be.
I simplify makeup for busy moms.

The trip to Sephora.

I think I am in a blogging funk. Too exhausted to say anything worthwhile. Some of you have asked about my Sephora buys last week. Well ladies, here they are! πŸ˜‰ 
Decided to take the plunge and try the HD foundation. So far. Thumbs up. Loooove the feel of it. 

Love the powder too, creates a matte finish without changing the color of your foundation. Almost airbrush looking. 

I was out of this miracle product so I had to get more. Did you know this is the best stuff ever made? Fact.

Some more colors of this fantastic eyeliner… bourbon has sparkles in it. Ooh la la!

And THIS mascara. Tarte… it is amaze. You must try it. I’m quite picky about mascaras but I think I have a new favorite. 

If you were to invest in ONE product from this post, I would tell you you must have this. Best eyelash curler I have ever bought. It is amazing! It doesn’t pull, and is just so comfy. And mine doesn’t even have the bling, so you KNOW that is not why I like it… HA. (Tarte, also)

Sephora gloss in golden shimmer. 
And just for fun, my sis and mom made fun of me for the following. This all came with me for ONE NIGHT. It was just easier to grab everything!

I plan to get back to normal soon. Just been so BUSY!!!! Weekends should be four days.

    I'm dying to make a Sephora trip soon! I'll have to try some of your recommendations while I'm there.

  2. Tiffany says:

    I see that you use "It's a 10" for your hair….oh my gosh, I'm obsessed with that stuff! It's amazing!


  3. Jessica says:

    I love the Tarte mascara and eyelash curler too! My curler isn't blinged out like that one though.

  4. katelyn w says:

    I believe that when we grow out of candy stores we grow into Sephora! It is wonderful! And what I wouldn't do for a bling-ed out eyelash curler. Show stopper. have a good Week!

  5. S says:

    I can't even think of anything to say on Facebook – so busy! Thanks for the Sephora recommendations!

  6. Mommy Webb says:

    Sephora is much like Target – I must stay away. Although that HD foundation does look pretty fabulous…:). Thanks for sharing, sister:).

  7. ashleigh says:

    i want that eyelash curler!

  8. Make up tutorial!! Well only if you want :). I love MAKE UP FOR EVER. I actually just mentioned that loose powder on a post. Hope your doing well. I bought that Tarte eyelash curler [well the plain black one] for my sister last year. She loves it, but oh how I wish they still sold Shu Uemura the most amazing curler like EVER. Luckily, I have it.

  9. i took a trip to Sephora this weekend, and ended up with that same foundation! i need to try the powder, it seems…i also ended up with Benefit's Girl Meets Pearl highlighter, and LOVE it! may need to be the next thing you try πŸ˜‰

  10. Elle says:

    I can't blame you for the tray full of makeup. You never know what mood you will be in the next day, so how can you know what makeup you'll want to wear?

  11. Mighty Burns says:

    I need new mascara in a bad way! Maybe all I need is a trip to sephora as well!

  12. Leah says:

    Love that eyelash curler! I just downloaded a Sephora app for my I phone, love it!

  13. I absolutely LOVE reading about you and it makes me happy that you're also an ADPi!

  14. Sassy says:

    I got that make-up a few weeks ago and I'm LOVING IT! I'm definitely going to try out that primer because you've been raving about it for awhile. And ain't no shame in bringing all your "tools" with you, even for just one night. Every.single.time. I try to just "grab a few things" to get ready somewhere else, I always end up forgetting something important that's hard to borrow…like concealer…which is REALLY IMPORTANT. LOL

  15. I have wanted to try the HD foundation for awhile now…may have to buy it now:). Good to know Tarte has some good finds never tried before but might have to check out. Have a good day!

  16. Katie Jones says:

    OMG girl. I have been hearing SO MANY good things about the makeup forev HD foundation. I just recently purchased the new Maybelline FitMe and I love it, but I'm itching to try that HD!

    Jealz of that eyelash curler!

  17. Ashley says:

    I love Sephora!! I need a new foundation. I have been trying JUST a powder but it isn't enough coverage — I get rosy throughout the day…I will have to try the MUFE
    BTW – I LOVE It's a 10!! I have used it for YEARS! For a while I had to order it from a salon in a small town in TX where my cousin lived because it hadn't gone mainstream lol

  18. Amber says:

    I LOVE "It's A 10". My sister works at Cosmo Prof so she gets a 20% discount and she gets me all the great hair supplies for practically nothing. πŸ™‚

    Looks like you got some great purchases. I might have to try that Tarte mascara. I'm very picky about my mascara as well.

    Don't worry about the blogging funk. We've all been there. Loved seeing that you posted today though! Miss you!

  19. Cait says:

    ahh LOVE Sephora- I think I could spend all my money there hehe! don't worry about the blog girl- just happy to see you posting here and there πŸ™‚ xo have a fabulous tuesday!

  20. Katie says:

    I can always count on you to make me want to spend more moolah on bettering my face haha I think I may have to try the Too Faced Primer since you rave about it so much! I will go ahead and send you the bill with it… hahah just kidding!! xoxo miss ya

  21. Mrs. Wasp says:

    I love the eye liners, I recently rebought (yes now have 2 sets) of the 15 year anniversary collection. Does the primer have silicone in it? I need a good primer but skin has been super sensitive lately any silicone just turns me into a pizza. πŸ™

  22. Brittany says:

    I just bought Benefit Erase Paste concealer and High Beam complexion enhancer – both amazing products!! The concealer is fantastic and the high beam gives you a nice dewey glow on your cheekbones. Definitely check them out on your next Sephora trip πŸ™‚ I gotta try that Mascara and I love the eyeliner colors your picked out!

  23. Love Sephora!! I haven't been able to get there in a while because I have to travel to get to one, but oh man they are awesome!! I'm going to check out that face primer.

  24. Laura says:

    i need to bookmark this post and come back to it as soon as i get back to the states πŸ™‚ I'm in SUPER NEED of a makeup revamp… and i love that blingy eyelash curler πŸ™‚ hehe (of course you would find it!) Hope you're doing wonderful this week!! miss u


  25. Leslie says:

    I love buying new make-up! Now i'm dying to go to sephora!! and yes, weekends should be 4 days. It would make life so much better!

  26. Ha I did the same thing last weekend I just brought my whole makeup drawer. Way easier than picking out things. I have to disagree with ya on the curler have you tired a Shu Uemura eyelash curler? That one is pretty good too.. I love all things Tarte they have great foundation too!

  27. ohh ahhh… thanks for this I am addicted to Sephora. Could spend all day there.

  28. Lindsey says:

    I use that same leave-in, it's great. Infusion 23 leave-in is really good too and cheaper. I do the same thing, bring entirely too much stuff for one night. I think most girls probably do.

    Never tried that eyeliner but my absolute fave and the ONE thing I will never switch is my eyeliner. I did an entire post about it and I heart it so much. SUCH a good deal and the absolute best eyeliner ever if I do say so myself.

  29. Day Old News says:

    I'm totes on the Makeup Forever bandwagon, I love it, esp the blush. I've been mourning the end of US sales of Shu Uemura since I want another eyelash curler so I'm going to have to try this one. Even if I can't have the sparkles.

  30. Hailey says:

    I have been awaiting this post since you posted that picture on twitter. Of course, it didn't disappoint!

    * I think I learned about the Too Faced "Primed and Pore less" from you awhile back, uhmm THANK YOU! I am in love with it.

  31. vivalalt says:

    I love sephora! Is hat primed and poreless better than the MAC primers?

  32. Kat says:

    We are make up soul mates. I cannot survive without my Primed and Poreless. Also, I have been using the HD powder forevah and I LOOOOVE it. You have to check out Too Faced eye palette/kit The Natural Eye. It has some amazing neutrals that can be worn a trillion different ways. Best. Product. Ever. Hope you have a great day!

  33. Amber says:

    I've heard a lot of good things about Make Up Forever but have never tried it. I use Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation and powder and I am OBSESSED with it! It seriously lasts all day long and makes your skin look flawless. I've said time and time again that I would never try another kind as long as this was on the market…but if I ever do this will probably be my next purchase.

    – Amber

  34. I work at Sephora and the things you bought are all great products! Have you ever tried the Laura Mercier translucent setting powder? LOVE!

  35. nani says:

    Best Of Luck!!!
