I am obsessed with beauty products and makeup. I spend a small fortune in Sephora every month or so and when Fall rolls around I know it is time for Friends and Family from Sephora where you get 20% off. My favorite items are the holiday kits and this year I got a few! If you haven’t already signed up for your code go to www.Sephora.com/Friends and sign up. I did sign up and get my code and when I placed my order a few hours later my code had already been used. It seems to be a glitch they are having this year – just call them and place your order over the phone instead. In years past the code was something like “FF2011” but this year they changed that.
Here is what I got or as they call it on blogs “my haul” LOL:
*And I should probably explain I am on a never-ending quest to find the best mascara in the world! I buy this box set every year (it changes every holiday season) and this year I was in trouble because they have TWO sets! My current favorite mascara is MAC’s Studio Fix Lash and I also love Clinique’s Naturally Glossy Mascara for those days where I want to conceal my blonde lashes but not look like I am really wearing mascara.

Clinique Black Honey Lip Duo
I’ve loved this color since my high school days and the current one I have it getting a little dry so I wanted to buy a new one. I love that this one is a gloss and almost lipstick duo!
NARS Lip Gloss in Chihuahua
This gloss has been on my wish list for a while and I decided it is time to get it!
NARS Lip Gloss in Albatross
This is one of the limited edition Nars lip colors to match their blush of the same name. I was worried about the color being too light or too warm for my skin but I am going to try it. I will let you know what I think! Karen from Makeup and Beauty Blog gave it a great review and this is one of her photos of the gloss:
Tarte EmphasEYES Waterproof Clay Shadow Liner in Plum
I’m on a cream eyeliner kick at the moment and I wanted a purple shade. I can’t wait to try this one! I think I am going to get the Bobbi Brown ones, too, in Denim Ink and Violet Ink.
SEPHORA COLLECTION Waterproof Smoky Cream Liner in Made In Manhattan
I also got this cream eyeliner in a blue/gray shade and I can’t find a photo of it online so I will take more when it arrives.
