Sephora and Ross Beauty Haul

I went to Sephora today to get a new foundation and before I went, I had to do some research.  I have oily skin and that’s a main factor that helps me choose what foundation I purchase.  Choosing the perfect foundation is ALWAYS hard to do!  There’s always making sure that it goes with your undertone and skin tone.  That’s why I always go to Sephora or Ulta to get my foundations,  because at the drug stores you can’t test them out on the spot.  If you can’t test them on the spot,  there’s a HIGH chance that you’ll have to go back and exchange it.  So, I just stick with Sephora and Ulta for my foundations.

Well, I ended up getting some stuff at Sephora and my daughter wanted to go to Ross, so I found some skin care there.

Here’s everything that I purchased at both the stores, Sephora and Ross.

Sephora Beauty Haul

At Sephora I bought the Hourglass Immaculate Mattifying Foundation, GlamGlow SuperMud, GlamGlow YouthMud, and my Sephora VIB free product of Origins GinZing eye cream.

From Ross I bought Deseo perfume by Jennifer Lopez and two DermaPure Skin Lightener face cream.
