Haul : Sephora and Target

 How is everyone doing?? It feels like I haven't posted in a while. School is seriously taking over my life and I don't know what happened to this week :S. I mean it's already Sunday! ..sigh.. Anyway, I need to catch up on reading blogs that I follow and obviously post more! So, please please be patient with me :). 
Here are the things that I picked up recently - I haven't been able to shop a lot, but I figured I will show you anyway. Also, I see a few new followers, so hi! Really really nice to meet you and welcome to my blog~ :).
1. Maybelline Dream Matte Powder in Sand (Medium 0-1)
 I needed a new blot powder to carry around in my makeup bag, so I picked up this guy at Target. I'm really excited to use it 'cause I heard so many good things about it ^^.
2. Boots No. 7 Exceptional Definition Nutrient Enriched Mascara in 01 Black
 I always wanted to try things from Boots No. 7, since a  lot of people love the brand. I looked at their lip stuff and all, but ended up buying this guy. The brush looked pretty unique and I needed a new mascara anyway. Love the packaging as well - it's sleek and slimmer than most drugstore mascaras.
3. Jergens Natural Glow Daily Moisturizer in Medium to Tan
 If you have been reading my blog, you know that I don't use self tanners - at all. However, I decided to give it a try since I gained really weird tan lines over the summer. I'm a little afraid that it will turn out too orange, but we'll see what happens ;).
4. Nars Eyeshadow Duo in Habanera
 This guy was a total impulse buy after a stressful class, but I'm glad that I got it. The shadows are very pigmented and I don't have anything like this in my collection. The left side is a sky blue with shimmers and the right is a muted plum with silver flecks.
5. MUFE Aqua Eyes in 14L
 I wanted a white eye liner for my water line to look "more awake" in the mornings. So far I love most MUFE products so I grabbed the liner without hesitation. I used it twice and I have to say that I'm a bit disappointed. It applies unevenly and it makes white clumps in the lashes :(. I hope it'll work someday, because it was expensive.

And that is all for today- Hope you are all doing well-
Much love,


  1. They have Boots in the US?! I wish they have MUFE over here in the UK! :(
    I have that Maybelline Powder too, its actually quite good, one of my everyday powders now. When I first got it I was wondering why the packaging was so thick, I was trying to lift the bottom up & all sorts & for weeks & weeks I never knew there was a mirror & puff below until I accidentally twisted it one day, don't believe I tried lifting it but never twisted it before haha.

  2. Nice collection of items! Habanera looks lovely. I'm curious to hear how you've been using the white MUFE liner?

  3. @ Julie We don't have the whole line, but a few products at Target ^^ oh and it took me a while too to figure out what's underneath the powder lol

    @ Dovey Thank you ^^ I've been using the MUFE liner on my lower waterline and inner corner of the eye~

  4. I have been really curious about these MUFE eye liners. I don't know if I'll try it now x) It's really a shame when we spend money on a product and it doesn't work the way it should! :/

  5. I am also very curious with the Maybelline Dream Matte Powder but I just can't seem to see it in my country. Boo. The Nars Duo looks so fab! :) Great items!

  6. I'm not a fan of Jergens gradual self tanners, they do not give me a tan AT ALL. So disappointing ):

  7. i used to use the Jergens tanner in hs. it smells bad LOL but most tanners do. mb it's bc i'm reaaaaallly pale, but it didn't really tan me. i tried it to even out a tan line too but it didn't work. hopefully it'll work out better on you though!

    that nars duo is so pretty!hope u can do an eotd w it ^_^

  8. How fast are the weeks going by! It's kinda scary!

    I've also heard so many good things about the Maybelline Dream Matte powder. Let me know how it goes because at the moment, there's a sale on at one of our drugstores, 3 Maybelline face products for $30 which is quite good considering drugstore items aren't cheap here. Also thinking of picking up the Liquid Mousse and Fit Me but not sure.

    The Nars Duo looks nice~ EOTD or FOTD ? Hehe

    Good luck with school Amy!

  9. yeah i cant believe its already monday in here, Korea:) how time flies!
    눈 점막에 아이라이너 그리면 어쩔수 없이 아래속눈썹에 뭉치거나 금방 사라지거나 하더라구요ㅠㅠ
    그나마 면봉으로 점막을 살짝 닦아준다음에 그리면 낫긴하지만....

  10. I really want that Jergens natural glow, have heard so good things about it (:

    The duo shadow looks gorgeous

  11. @ Joanne trying to make it work fingers crossed! I don't know about the pencil liners, but you should def try their liquid liners- they are awesome ;)

    @ Myrted Hope you can get it soon in your country :) thanks for stopping by! xx

    @ G A B Y Oh really??!!! Do you have any recommendations then? I really want to get rid of these ugly tan lines :(

    @ ShinyPrettyThings Oh no... I hope it'll work, but yeah, let me know if you have any recommendations ok. I will try to do an EOTD or an FOTD w/ the duo in the near future. Thanks for stopping by xx.

    @ PopBlush Thanks hun~ I used the powder like twice and I don't know if I like it or not yet. But I will make sure to tell you as soon as I make up my mind hehe.

    @ Jade 그러니깐요 흑흑... 그나마 맥에서 나오는 펜슬들이 좀 오래남는거 같은데 밝은 색은 없더라구요

    @ Malika :) I haven't tried the Jargens natural glow yet, but it seems like it's a hit or a miss. Hope it works on me! xx
