First online Sephora order

Hey lovelies! I'm so happy, today, I received my first Sephora order! The closest Sephora to my town is like 2 hours away. Since I didn't go to that Sephora 2 weeks before or after my birthday, I didn't want to lose my beauty insider gift. So I bought one thing (I would have bought more, but I bought so much makeup lately, I need to calm myself a bit aha), I bought the Urban Decay Naked Basics! Aside from my birthday gift I got a bunch of samples, I was very pleased with them, and I will surely order from Sephora online again! :)

Here's an overview of everything I got.

Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette: This is the only thing I ordered. It was on my wishlist of numerous beauty things I want, the decision was hard, but it was only 32$ (which is not expensive if you're familiar with Sephora) and I got my beauty insider birthday gift and numerous samples. I'm in LOVE with the packaging, it's super cute. As I only got it today, I have not had the chance to try it that much, so I won't do a review right now, but I will soon. 

Benefit real birthday turns-on including Benefit They're Real! mascara and Watt's Up soft focus highlighter for face: I was super excited when I saw that this was the beauty insider birthday gift for this year, because I've been wanting to try these products for SO long. Maybe I could do a review of those two products and tell you girls if I will buy the full-size product? Let me know! This is actually my first time having a Sephora beauty insider, super exciting, right? Haha! 

Too Faced Glamour Gloss Volumizing lip gloss with lip injection Comfort Plump in Flirt: As the name says, it's a plumping gloss, the color is a pretty neutral pink! Seems like a color I will use alot. 

3 samples: I'm not positive but I think that you can always have 3 samples when you order on Sephora. So these are the ones I chose:

  • Laura Mercier Foundation Primer - Radiance
  • Soap & Glory Face Soap and Clarity 3-in-1 Daily-detox vitamin c facial wash
  • Justin Bieber's Girlfriend Perfume
Hope you enjoyed seeing my first online Sephora order. I will be doing some review, I will do one about the Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette for sure! And I was very please with the online service from Sephora and I will surely make a bigger order! haha. If you want any other reviews or more information let me know! xoxo

Haul: Makeup, Nailpolish and Skincare

Hi beauties! So today I will be doing a haul of things that I have bought a few days ago. I have bought mainly from the Cherry Blossom Girl Collection from Essence! I always get really excited for their new collection and buy half of it! I wish I could buy them all though and review it for you guys! Their products are super affordable for the quality that they are. So let's begin!

Here is an overview of everything I got.

Someday perfume by Justin Bieber: I've been wanting this for quite a while now. It was on sale for 8,99$! I had to get it. I love the smell.
Essie - Bahama Mama: I've been wanting this polish for a while now. I'm having a hard time justifying paying 11,99$ for a nail polish! So I just buy them if they're on sale, or it's a color I really want/can't find it cheaper.

Essence Cherry Blossom Girl Blush in Asian Sensation: This blush is really lovely. Just the blush itself is beautiful. There's a darker and lighter pink, you can wear them alone or mix them. It gives a light shade of pink, with a hint of coral I would say. It is shimmery, but it more kind of like a glow. It's a great blush for everyday use!
Essence Cherry Blossom Girl Quattro Eyeshadow in Dreaming under a cherry tree: This palette might be one of my favorite! I love everything about it! The pinks are actually really pretty! The neutral are GORGEOUS. I'm still trying to figure out how I could add the pinks one without it being too much. I will try how they look on their own. Who knows? Maybe I'll like it.
No7 Beautiful Skin Cleansing Balm: I've been seeing this brand alot on the blogosphere lately and I tought to myself: hey, I should give this a try! It says it's for very dry skin, which I've been having trouble with. So hopefully this will help, I am trying to get more into skincare. (because I have so much makeup) I will probably do a review about this later on, let me know what you think!

Rimmel Scandaleyes eyeliner in Nude: As it's called, it's a nude eyeliner. I've been searching for this for a while. I was so happy when I found it. It's perfect to put on your waterline.
Essence Cherry Blossom Girl Highlighter: This must be one of the prettiest highlighter EVER. I just can't express how much I love it, I am sad that it's not part of their permanent collection. I probably will go buy some more at my pharmacy! It's just so perfect, every one should have it, it's super cheap and it's high-end quality.
Essence cherry Blossom Girl 2in1 eyeliner pen - semi permanent: I'm not sure how to feel about this one. I did not notice it was saying "semi permanent". So I don't know what I will do with this one.

Revlon - Girly

So today I will be doing a little of possibly one of the cutest nail polish ever, Girly by Revlon.
This milky, pinky lilac color is mixed with glitter of many sizes, shapes and colors. Some of the colors include blue, fuschia, light pink, lilac... and some more that I can't really describe. It's not called girly for nothing I've had mine on for about 3 days and I have not experienced chipping. I was really suprised that Revlon would come up with something like this, it reminds me of more expensive brands like Deborah Lippmann.
The only downside is that it's a sheer polish, you have to apply 3-4 coats so that it can look exactly like in the bottle.
It's such a cute polish. I don't have anything like this in my collection. If you want a super girly nail polish and original , buy this and you won't regret it!

Currently loving

Hi beauties! So I decided to do a post about some of the things I've been loving.

1. Maybelline Color Whisper: I'm so happy about these. I have two: Cherry on top and Lust for blush. I'm obsessed with them and I want some more. (Which ones are your favorites?) Maybelline describes them as "Pure color pigments suspended in a weightless gel" which I totally agree, with the ones I have, they feel so comfortable on the lips and are pigmented, while being kinda sheer, if that makes any sense? They have a great shine. As I said, I am so obsessed with them!
2. Vampire Diaries: Suprise! I do love other things than beauty/fashion related! I've only started season 1 and I love it. Words can't even describe how amazing it is. You just have to watch it girls.
3. Maybelline The Rocket Volum' Express: This is such a great mascara, def my favorite at the moment. I do have a review, so if you'd like to know more about it you could check it out here.
4. Taylor Swift Enchanted Wonderstruck perfume: Needless to say, this is amazing. Amazing smell. Amazing bottle. Amazing amazing amazing. But, everything Miss Taylor Swift do is AMAZING.
BTW, I was wondering if anyone could tell me how to make better collage, I haven't been blogging for that long and I don't know how to make ones like everyone else on here! Thank you so much xoxo

Back in the beauty community

Hi beauties!!

Woah, I've been so absent from the beauty community for a month! I haven't been on blogspot for a long long time, but youtube, yes, and it's the first time that I have not been up to date with watching my subscriptions! Alot has been going on lately, and I'm slowly getting back on track with youtube (even though it's taking forever!) For blogspot, I have not been reading posts for a month also and I surely did miss it (can you guess what I'm doing after?). I need to get better at writing posts frequently, I really do like it, it's just that I always find myself needing to do something; I just need to find some time to do what I truly love. I really love the beauty community and I would say it's a big part of my life! :) So I'm really happy to be back!!

On the 1st of February, it was my birthday, I turned 20. It's been 19 days, and I still don't know how to feel about it. Really I still feel the same. I could say that I feel the same as 16. It's really weird how time seems to fly by. And that also you're not a "teenager" anymore, which just doesn't feel right, because I was one, just 19 days ago. It's almost as if I don't realize that I'm 20 yet, but I realize that time is flying by and I need to focus on what's important and live life to the fullest.

For my birthday I got and iPhone 4S, I've been wanting one for the longest time. I'm so happy about it! Please follow my Instagram: sparklethiscity

If you want to email me:

I'm so excited to be back doing what I really love. I will try to post frequently. If you have any suggestions on what you'd like to see please leave it in the comments! :)
