Too Faced Girls Dig Pearls 'Pink' Dupe!!!

This is probably my all time favourite lip gloss ever so I was very sad when I found out it was discontinued! I do have this tube but the lid is cracked in a million places (you can see one of the cracks in the second picture), so I am also very very sad about that because it means I can't throw it in my purse and take it with me when I want to use it. I had been searching for a replacement but am weary of buying makeup products on ebay or amazon. I have so far been dreading running out of this gloss! I have found it online but I know it's only a matter of time until I can't even find it online anymore.

I was in Sephora last week to pick up my birthday gift and really didn't need to shop for more makeup since I have enough to make some makeup artists jealous of my stash. I of course HAD to check out the sale section just to see what kind of deals there were (I can totally justify purchasing more if it's on sale). I was kind of shocked when I saw a ton of these in the clearance section.

They are very very very close in colour! Even I was surprised at how close they were when I compared them side by side. I still have the wrapper on the Sephora one so it doesn't look as glittery in the photo as it does in real life. I bought the Sephora gloss on sale for $3. I'm depressed that I didn't pick up more backups now at that price! I will make sure to check next time I go and see if they have anymore left so I can snatch them up.

Sephora Birthday Gift for 2012

I got to pick up my Sephora gift last week and I have to say I really like what I see even though I haven't tried it yet. They are both scented, though I can't quite put my finger on the exact scent of them but man do they smell good! Kind of like tropical skittles maybe? Just the smell alone is enough for me to say they are fantastic! There are two mini tubes in the box, one is tinted 'Rose' (perfect for me!) and the other is just a sheer treatment. The tubes are very cool because instead of just snapping on like a lipstick they twist a bit. Great to throw in your bag and not have to worry about a lid coming off and they are the perfect trial size for small purses which I am more into carrying now and can't have a full makeup bag. To purchase these full size I believe they are either $22 or $23 at Sephora. I am very happy that they have provided mini versions as the free birthday gift so I can try them out (free of course) before spending so much on the full size product.

Julep Maven March Box

It's that time of month again! My March Julep Maven box arrived last week but I was away until yesterday so I got to open it finally last night!
I'm so happy the box is here because I have had to have naked nails for auditions all week so I'm very excited to be able to paint my nails with one of these colours! They also threw in a nail file which will come in handy even though I own a million already! At least I won't ever have to buy nail files again if I keep managing to get them free or nearly free (gotta love sales).

The colours are from top to bottom: Charlotte (purple creme), Jodie (rose with gold shimmer), and Melissa (sheer blue/white pearl colour).

Melissa does not look that spectacular in the bottle but over a deep dark colour it looks so amazing! I was playing around with it and I am in love with this colour.

If you still haven't signed up after all these posts I have about the program you can do so at the link below. Just fill out the survey and find out which box is best for you! There is always the option to skip the month or cancel if you find out later that the program isn't for you. There is also a referral program which allows you to earn free months when you refer two friends and they stay members for 30 days. I have so far received the monthly boxes free! Which is an awesome deal and it makes me love the program even more as I am more than likely a member for life (well until my nail polish stash starts to take over anyway).
