Beauty Hauling at Sephora & M•A•C
OH how I love shopping at M•A•C & Sephora. It’s my candy store!
To start the shopping off, my daughter said, “But first we must do a selfie!”
I went shopping at Sephora and MAC and my daughter went shopping at Forever 21.
I had some things to return for the Back to MAC program so I was looking around for a new pink lipstick.
I decided on the lipstick shade Syrup. I can’t believe I didn’t already have this pink shade. I also purchased Angel lipglass and the MAC mascara In Extreme Dimension Lash.
Fast forward to Sephora, I bought Hourglass primer Veil, Josie Maran Argan Cleansing Oil, Josie Maran Bohemian Waves Argan Hair Mist, and OLEHENRIKSEN 3 little wonders that includes the Truth Serum Collagen Booster, Invigorating Night Gel, and Sheer Transformation Brightening Moisturizer.
The Truth Serum claims to instantly brighten and significantly improve skin’s radiance, so I’ll be putting this to the test!
That’s it for my Sephora & MAC weekend hauling.
What’s on your Sephora & MAC wish list?

Hello All my beauties!
I finally received my Josie Maran order from Haute Look and one of the items that I received was the face brightening balm.
I never knew that she had a brightening balm in her product line. The consistency is nice and creamy and all types of shimmery.
Brightening Balm is a powerful complex of nature’s brighteners: lemon oil, orange oil, antioxidant-rich, organic Argan Oil, and bearberry. An ancient healing herb used to eliminate age spots, and evens freckles, bearberry is a natural skin-brightener. Worn under or over your makeup, it will illuminate the beauty that is the true you.
With it be in nice and sunny out send in the springtime, this balm will nicely highlight all the features that you want it to highlight. it’s not overly shimmery it’s just the perfect type of shimmery.
I’m going to have to check with Sephora again to see if they have this in their store that way if I run out of this one I can make sure I can repurchase it locally.
It comes with a nice lil brush so you can apply it on. Rarely do I use a brush that comes with the actual product but this brush is actually great! There’s no throwing this baby in the garbage. I know I’m not the only person that throws away those generic brushes that come with the products.
The container itself is nice and sleek and has the signature Josie Maran name on it.
It also has a lil mirror and a covered peekaboo slot so you can actually see the product.
It goes on smoothly and doesn’t cake on or crease. The scent is amazing and not overpowering. It’s just right.
This is the first highlighting creamy type product that I’ve seen. If you know of any other ones please let me know. You know I love to try different products out. But for now I love this one.
Have you tried this or even knew that it existed?

My two new AMAZINGNESS Josie Maran products to add to my collection!
First here is the AMAZINGNESS definition: to be absolutely to the fullest extent everything anybody could ask for.
If you’ve tried the AMAZINGNESS Josie Maran’s product line then you all know what I’m talking about!!
I found these babies on QVC. I seriously didn’t think I’d be the QVC buying type. You know what I mean, the stereotyping of the late-night QVC watching people who have their phone and credit card on hand.
I actually purchased these on their website because I didn’t even know they existed in her line.
I bought the Josie Maran Calming Lavender Water that acts as a toner for when you’re done cleansing your face as well as a throughout-the-day face misting spray. I already tested this out as a refreshing spray. I’m a lavender-loving chic so this was a MUST-HAVE for me.
I also purchased the Josie Maran Argan Exfoliating Powder. I didn’t know this existed either. It has the same concept as my Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant, so hopefully I fall in love with this.
Me being the excited dummy, I opened it up so I can smell it and guess what happened? Yup, since it’s a powder, when I tried to take in the aroma…my nose got a whole bunch of powder sucked in instead. Lesson learned!
There’s still plenty more Josie Maran products that I want to get like the Josie Maran Sugar Scrub. That’s next on my list to get! I’m still waiting on two products that I purchased from HauteLook when they were doing a Josie Maran Sale. I’m waiting on the Rose toner spray and the Josie Maran Face Brightening Balm.
I’m definitely gonna use this baby tonight and I’ll report back to y’all on my findings!!
I’m super excited to try these out!!
Have y’all tried these or even know they existed?
