Haul! The Body Shop, Sephora and more!

Okay. I know, I know. I haven't been on in quite a while. It's Summer, and I want to enjoy it! :)
Okay. So here it is...

The Body Shop!!

They had this thing going on where a lot of things were on sale...and you know how I love me some sales&The Body I got some stuff. Not very much, though. Anyways...

(Above) A comparison of a small and big size of Body Butters.
I had to. I had never seen this scent before, and let me say, it smells delicious.
(If you want to know just how much I LOVE these body butters, then you should definitely check out my post on them. Click Here!)
Anyways..there were only three body butters on sale, which was disappointing/misleading because I thought that the "big" sale included all of the secnts of body butters...but the only ones that were on sale were Raspberry, Blueberry, and Coconut (Shimmery). Which were all nice, by the way.
So I got the Raspberry for about $10 I think..which was an amazing deal, because usually they are around $20. The small body butters were $4...awesome! Guys, if you love these body butters of have been wanting to try them, now is definitely the time to do it! Click the link below if you wanna check it out.

I also had been wanting to try their Shampoos&Conditioners for quite a while now, so I picked up some trial sized ones. I have used them, and they are great! They leave a softly lingering, sweet scent in your hair, and they make my hair super soft! My hair is naturally a bit coarse, but the Honey shampoo and conditioner seemed to do the trick for me.

As you can see, I also got an Olive "Glossing" Conditioner. It works great. Doesn't have much of a scent..but I guess Olives don't either. Works fine, and I was pleasantly surprised to find that it did, indeed, add some shine to my hair. Hello, Summer!
I will most definitely be purchasing a full sized Shampoo&Conditioner from The Body Shop once I finish the one I am using now.

That's it for The Body Shop. Next, I picked up a few things that I have definitely been wanting for a while from Sephora. 

First, I have been in desperate need of a good blush, so I picked up NARS "Orgasm". I know.. it's a really embarrassing/awkward name. It is their most famous blush, and has been on Allure's 2010 Reader's Choice Awards for a couple years in a row now. So, I got it! It is GORGEOUS. I think I found a few close dupes to it. I will post them asap.

I just couldn't stop taking pictures of it, it was soo pretty! It gives me great glow for everyday. If you want it to be a little more dark/dramatic, you can intensify this blush by just adding more layers of it! There are little gold sparkles in it which make you look like you are literally glowing! Especially when you are in the sun. This is definitely something I have been and will be using every single day. It's a bit pricey, but well worth every penny if you want a great quality blush. LOVE it!

Remember my first post everThe one where I said that I wanted some of the Sephora by OPI polishes so bad? Well I got one! It's the on that I wanted the most! "It's Bouquet with me" is such a fun and summery polish. I am obsessed with it, and it has been on my nails every day.
I sincerely wish that I could buy every. single. nail polish color that OPI and Sephora by OPI makes. That would be my dream.  



I love it. :)

Okay, so I got the "Birthday Gift" from Sephora..which is a little mini set that consists of an eyeliner, an eyeshadow and a mascara. 

(Sorry for the blurry pics-)

It's in the color "Aspen Summit", appropriately named. It's a very nice, pigmented frosty white. It goes on very satiny and seems to last a while. I like it. 
And for the little eyeliner..

It actually looks alot lighter than it is. It is really pretty, and though I  haven't had the oppurtunity to wear it yet, I think it will be great.

I don't really care that much for the mascara. It doesn't seem do anything at all for my lashes.. it doesn't even look like I am wearing mascara if I wear it . I was really disappointed with the results of this mascara..maybe I just got a dud. Oh well.
Other than the mascara, I was pleased with what I got. Not bad for a free birthday gift, eh?

That's all for now! New posts soon! :)

Stay Gorgeous,
