The VIB discount is the work of an evil genius. If you throw enough money at Sephora, you're designated as a "Very Important Beauty Insider". Sephora has a sale for VIBs once a year where you get 20% off your entire purchase. This leads the average naive consumer (aka me) to eagerly pounce on items I don't really need nor should spend my hard earned money on because COME ON PEOPLE it's 20% off. IT IS YOUR MORAL OBLIGATION.
So without further delay, this is what I picked up today!
Since I like to travel and am usually on-the-go in everyday life, I appreciate travel friendly perfume that meets TSA guidelines and fits in my purse. Not to mention it's perfect if you want to try out a perfume without committing to buying the whole bottle. Flowerbomb came out a while ago, but I'm just getting around to trying it. I have high hopes.
The lovely ladies from Pixiwoo often use this Anastasia pencil to fill in their eyebrows. It's been on my list for a while and I had the perfect excuse to get it today!

NARS makes really nice blushers - Zara from Mouldy Fruit posted about Madly some time ago and I picked it up based on her recommendation. No joke, this is my favorite blush. It's gorgeous. Here's a shot of my almost used-up one, hence the need for a backup. The lighting isn't great so you can't pick out the shimmer. But it's not at all overly shimmery. Madly beats the cult favorite NARS Orgasm by a mile in my book.
Lastly, I've heard of the British brand Eyeko before, but mostly in reference to BB creams. I happened to see their eyeliner displayed today and stopped for a look-see. Holy moly this is a precise pen. And my test line did not smear at all. Interest piqued, I looked to see if they had any left to buy and lo and behold, they were out! This immediately brought out the OCD in me and I HAD TO HAVE IT!! Unfortunately they didn't have any in the back although the salesgirl was very accommodating and said the next time they got shipment in, I could still purchase it with the VIB discount. Dejected, I went to the check-out line and I swear this is destiny because I saw this Eyeko eyeliner and mascara set in one of the bins lining the check-out aisle (another evil creation).

|Seriously, get a look at this pen tip! Can't wait to try it.|
There you have it folks. Back to studying. Wah.
