I want.. I need.. no... I just want...

So..It's getting close to Christmas and i am wanting a new foundation...Nars Sheer Matte isn't doing it for me anymore, I believe i got the wrong skintone..or at least it feels that way after watching GossMakeUpArtist's YouTube video on telling your skintone.. its definitely too dark and I love the Make Up For Ever HD but lets face it my skin will not always work for that..MUFE's HD is really for normal skin..and since i have dry combo, it will not work for everyday. I am looking into Make Up For Ever's Face and Body..heard a lot of good reviews and i am hoping it will work.. I am going to Sephora Tomorrow for a Sample...Make sure my face doesn't have a reaction before i buy it..

I am also on a hunt for cream blushes, since I do not own any and have been meaning to try some...I want MAC's Lilicent, Bobbi Brown's Rouge Pot in 3 colors (pink truffle, blushed rose and powder pink), and nyx's cream blushes as well (like 5 of them)...I think i am ready for summer and spring. I have been doing nude looks and have been using my korres foundation to pull off a dewy look. I have been wanting a cream bronzer....I really want a chanel's cream bronzer and have been having a hard time to fork over the money and spend $50 on that...

Maybe Santa will give it to be me for Christmas.. a girl can dream right? ;)

Haul..Sephora Friends and Family

Thanks to the Lovely Temptalia, who shared the code for Sephora friends and family sale - which your receive 20% off everything online...needless to say i was super excited...

NARS Sheer Matte Foundation

I bought NARS Sheer Matte which is my new winter foundation, I love it! It gives a nice matte finish with buildable coverage, and with the stippling brush gives an airbrushed look. I tried the sheer glow but it never impressed me as much as this which is sad because i wanted so much to like because of my previous foundation but the matte is just love!
I have used korres ginger and vitamins foundation and loved it and will continue to use it when the summer comes around again, its just the korres is more of a tinted moisturizer compared to this but this foundation is love!

Korres Wild Rose Moisturizer

My new favorite and the smell is divine to me, it makes me feel as though i just came from a spa. I love it! It's gimmick is to even out skintone, reduce wrinkles and protect your skin from the sun while giving your skin the nutrients it needs. I have notice a difference after a week of using it. My skin looks clear hardly any redness and it feels and looks like its repairing the skin. As far sun protection, its only an SPF 6 so i do not see anything in that but as far as the other promises my skin does looks healthier..Love!

The only other 2 item that I got were the Korres Pomegranate Face Scrub - I mainly bought this because of the smell but it is a great face scrub and i use it every night before i go to bed as an exfoliator and it works. The other item is the Korres Face Primer - which i like only for the fact it is a wonderful nonsilicone primer, it is just like a lotion that retains the foundation and is awesome for those of us who have the dry combo skin. I wouldn't say its the best primer out there but its one of those that does the job, doesn't feel like plastic on your face which a good chunk of those silicone primers out there make me feel and the orange smell is amazing.

That is all for now I am hoping to go out and get more stuff before this sale ends on Nov. 2nd, we will see...
