That was fun!

I just placed an order from Sephora, my most favorite online store ever.

I got Bare Essentuals Buxom Lips in

Candi, and


Per Sephora: Naturally creates the look of fuller, more voluptuous lips. This mineral-infused polish imparts a luminous high shine with no sticky or tacky feeling. A deep infusion of antioxidant vitamins A and E help keep lips soft, smooth, and protected, while the tingly and cooling sensation reminds you that your lips are getting an immediate increase in fullness.

Per Sasha: I have this in Dominique (shimmery clear), and I lurve it. Tastes good, stays put, and makes my lips feel good.

NARS Lip Stain Gloss in Sayanora. Per Sephora: Soft shine and sheer color that lasts all day. Slightly less shiny than traditional glosses, each of these emollient shades gently stain the lips with a hint of color. Shades can be layered for added intensity. The reviews on Makeup Alley suggest dabbing a drop on your lip and applying with a lip brush or your finger. I'm excited to try this!

Dior Diorshow Mascara in Black. Per Sephora: Dior's cult-fave, super volumizing, lengthening, and curling mascara. And Traci gives it the highest recommendation (first on her Sephora list for me!), so I must try it.

Now, of course I went through Ebates, so I'll be getting 4% back. (My referral email address is And here is what I chose for my 3 free samples:

  1. Samples - DKNY Be Delicious Body Lotion - 0.23 oz
  2. Samples - Bare Escentuals bareVitamins Prime Time - 0.03 oz
  3. Samples - Philosophy Hope In A Tube And Eye Believe - 2 x 0.067 oz

It also prompted me to choose a deluxe sample, so I chose: Deluxe Samples - Kinerase C6 Peptide Intensive Treatment - 0.25 oz.

And then I entered Kinerase in the Promotion Code field and got: A free deluxe sample of Kinerase Brightening Face serum, a brightening, anti-aging formula containing a luxurious pearl extract, which instantly leaves the skin with a luminous, glamorous finish, while supplies last.

I am just going to be beautiful! I have a friend who swears by the Kinerase products, so I am anxious to see what they are all about. If they make my skin look like Courteney Cox Arquette's, fine by me.

Ohhh, I LOVE Philosophy Hope in a Jar! Good call with that sample :) Glad you had fun shopping - I loved shopping vicariously through you :)

Traci- I was so glad when you mentioned NARS- I knew I had heard about a stain gloss that I wanted to try. The blush in next on my list, though!

You are the devil...I am such a sucker for new makeup. Now, all I want to do is shop on Sephora and buy all of the things you posted about! I'm definitely going to try some of the Buxom you get free shipping with a certain amount...I'm sure I can find more things that I NEED!

Sasha said...

a.d. - spend over $75 and get free shipping. Sorry I sucked you in! If you aren't already registered for ebates, be sure and do that first and we'll each get $5!

A.D. said...
