Sephora, St. Patty’s Day, and GO CATS!

Top o the morning to ya.
So weekend recap: prior to celebrating St. Patty’s day, and of course the CATS win, I stopped in Sephora for a much needed Saturday morning date.
That store is like crack. I needed a bunch of the standard essentials, and came out with the following.
1. Buxom lipgloss, in bunny. LOVE.
2. Makeup Forever Mat Velvet #30
3. Makeup Forever Duo Matte powder #202
4. Nars Orgasm blush
5. Sephora Natural Round Powder brush (highly recommend!)
6. Urban Decay Eye Primer Potion
All and all a good trip. I feel so much better when I have all of my products, I had been out of a lot of things, and it wasn’t pretty.
So can we talk about something? 
Green beer. 
I don’t get it.
Everywhere I went Saturday people tried to give me green beer. DISLIKE. 
Why does it weird me out so much? I have no idea, but I can’t stand it. It looks like swamp water. Luckily I made friends with the bartender and found some secret non green beer. 
I had so much fun with all the girls, and of course sissy and boyfriend!
It was one of those weekends where I really really appreciated being a twenty something with no babies. Ha ha 😉 
xoxo miss you girls, we need a catch up Vlog very soon…

  1. Urban Decay Primer Potion is one of my absolute must haves, but that store is definitely like crack. I feel like I need everything! And everything costs $20-$40 each *sigh*

    I didn't end up having any green beer either, but for the first time in over 3 years, I was green the next morning 🙁

    I also appreciate being a 20 something without kids. There's definitely no rush here!

  2. Chelsea says:

    Buxom lip gloss is my faaaavorite! And they have SO many awesome colors to choose from! I don't think I've tried Bunny yet!

    Glad you had such a fun weekend with friends! The St. Patrick's Day attire is hilarious! 🙂

  3. I really, truly believe that I could live in Sephora. Good picks!

  4. What color could you compare MUFE mat velvet plus in 30 to?? I'm trying to order it online and i'm not sure if i should go with the 30 or 40… any help would be much appreciated!!
    also what are your thoughts on the powder? i want new face products NOW! hehe

  5. Caitlin C. says:

    Green beer kinda freaks me out too!! You are adorable, love the pictures… sounds like a fun weekend! 🙂

  6. Amber says:

    I had green beer for the first time this weekend, it wasn't too bad! Looks like y'all had a blast 🙂

  7. Kelly says:

    I love the buxom glosses too! And I haven't tried the matte velvet plus yet, but it's on my list after I use up my current foundation!

    And green beer kind of freaks me out too. yucky 😛

  8. Day Old News says:

    You had much better weather than we did. It was pouring, hailing, and downright freezing here. I looked in the bar mirror and was downright scared by what was happening on my head.

  9. Looks like a fun weekend!! Can't wait to hear about the make-up…review soon?

  10. LOVE the Mat Velvet foundation! Just wish I could find a good powder to keep me high-and-dry all day!

  11. Obsessed with Sephora! That store always gets me in trouble. I go to get one thing & I leave with 5 haha. The buxom lip gloss is the best, I can't even tell you how many I have. Which color is your favorite?

    I use that urban eye primer which is also amazing. Another one I like is the two faced "eye insurance." I use the nars blush as well but the bronze/blush duo one.

    I've heard nothing but good things about makeup forever so I might have to try that next. I currently use Laura Mercier & like it but am always looking to try new brands 🙂 do you use the foundation & powder both on a daily basis?

  12. Caroline says:

    I'm going to have to try some of that make-up. It's too cute. And love your St. Paddy's pics!

  13. How did you leave sephora w such little stuff?! Haha! I go crazy in that store I tell myself I can't go in unless I actually have money to spend haha! Adorable st pattys pictures looks like a fun time! I'm having a giveaway on my blog, I think you'd like it!

    Xx Kelly

  14. Sephora is amazing and I think I keep them in business! Do you have the app on your phone? Well let me just tell you not to download it unless you plan on getting a bonus check at work to blow! haha

  15. Down with green beer…just have an Irish car bomb instead!

    Thanks for sharing what you picked up from Sephora. I'm always looking for new goodies to try!

  16. I LOVE make up forever! I have the HD foundation, primer, and finishing powder. I've been wondering about the nars blush. Im thinking about getting some, because i just dropped my blush and it broke into a million pieces.
    Have a great week

  17. Yep. Yep….I own all of those products except the first makeup forever product. I will admit Sephora is my weakness and I could live there. (Right next to the Benefit and Urban Decay…) 🙂

  18. Jamie says:

    St Patty's weekend is definitely a good time to be baby free!

  19. Ashley H. says:

    I have been wanting the NARS Orgasm blush for a long time, but hate spending that much money on blush. Maybe I'll have the hubs get it for me for Mother's Day! Speaking of being a mother… this was the first weekend that I kinda missed the freedom I had before baby. No green beer for me!

  20. Ashley says:

    I feel like I have to go to Sephora tomorrow. I just got the Urban Decay Naked palette a few weeks ago & I think I need the Naked 2. I always sit and debate with the brushes but it hurts my little grinch heart to spend so much on one brush. I always feel like I need shopping rehab after I leave there.

  21. Jenny says:

    Just found your blog and I love it!

    I love going to Ulta (we don't have a Sephora here) and stocking up on makeup & fun stuff!

    I don't get green beer either! Its like green ketchup! Just.Nasty.

    Look forward to seeing more of your blog!

    Have a great week!

  22. Heather W says:

    Where is that UK dress from? I need.

  23. I'm going to need a review on the Make Up Forever Matte… I have heard it's the best but I didnt like what I tried! Maybe Matte is better! You can dedicate a VLOG to it!

  24. Sephora really is like crack!! You said it sister:) I used to wear Makeup Forver foundation…now you are making me miss it!! You're right about the green beer looking like swamp water…I did slug back 2 of them though – I'm so Irish I had to:)

  25. Bre says:

    NARS blush and UB primer are my two fav makeup items!!! LOVE LOVE!

  26. Love the pics!! Looks like you guys had a blast 🙂 XOXO

  27. Dani Ploscik says:

    You are so right, Sephora IS like crack. Thank goodness there isn't one nearby here in VA like there was in NY. I live off #1 and #6. Awesome picks! And love your St. Patty's Day fun. 🙂

  28. Thanks for sharing! I hope you do share more sometime soon! I love your blog!!
