Urge to Splurge - Sephora

You ever just have the insatiable urge to splurge over $150 bucks on facial products at a beauty retailer of your choice? Phew! And here I was thinking I was the only one! :)

Laneige - Lip Sleeping Mask

So among the plethora of products I purchased yet really didn’t need is Laneige’s Lip Sleeping Mask. Yeah, I thought the same thing - “I’ve heard of facial masks and even Halloween masks, but never have I ever heard of lip sleeping masks!” Well, for those of you who need a visual, picture this - slathering an opalescent emollient across your lips before you hit the hay and wiping off the excess in the morning - does that help? Hopefully, it does because I don’t have anymore adjectives up my sleeve!

Now I know you’re all questioning if this mask truly works and if it’s any different than the traditional balms and jellies we have been accustomed to since the early days of Dr. Pepper flavored Lip Smackers. Thankfully, I’m here to ease your inquisitive minds because it’s actually better…LOADS better!

Not only is it moisturizing, but it’s reparative too!

For the longest, my lips have been dryer than New Mexican heat, causing me to remain steadfast on my journey to finding their perfect moisturizer. With my new lip mask, however, I’ve been able to lay my quest to rest as this mask treats my lips and heals them too. As a matter of fact, for the past 4 months (yes, it lasts that long with plenty more to go), my lips haven’t cracked anything but a smile with plumpness to match. Therefore, if you’re looking forward to the brisk months ahead but need a lip moisturizer to help you brave them all, I’d encourage you to click here and grab you some! Thank me later! ;)

Peter Thomas Roth - Water Drench Hyaluronic Cloud Cream

Ever wanted to be on Cloud 9 - literally? Well, with Peter’s hyaluronic cloud cream, being amongst the cumulous and stratus is now totally possible!

To be frank, I bought this on a whim. I was simply canvasing the aisles of Sephora and stumbled upon this beauty pot with the “Try Me” sticker smeared on top. Being the beauty junkie I am, I opted to adhere to the label’s instructions and was more than bewildered in awe. This had to be the most lightweight “cream” I had ever felt. Consequently, without further delay and completely disinterested in its benefits, I paid my banknotes and rushed home - eager to chemtrail and contour!

So after about 4 months of use, I’m able to confidently say that it’s “mehhhhh” at best. Now don’t get me wrong, it’s jam packed with hyaluronic acid (approximately 30%) and boasts hydration that lasts pretty much all day, but have I seen a difference? Do I look younger as a result? In other words, would I repurchase it? NO!

But that doesn’t mean you can’t or shouldn’t either! It’s a joy to put on (cuz it feels so darn cool) and it definitely moisturizes, but let’s face it, plenty of other products do that at a bargain and actually render noticeable results too!

Still curious, however? Then look no further, Shimmies! Click here!


I know you’re wondering if these impulsive and exorbitant purchases discouraged me from frivolously spending and eventually reaching Rouge status at Sephora…well, of course not! That means you MUST stay tuned for more beauty updates!

Remember to Live Life, Beautifully ♥
