Was it coincidence that I had enough MAC empties (six, FYI) to redeem my Back-to-MAC free lipstick during the Sephora VIB sale?! Probably just divine intervention. Nevertheless, I certainly don’t have enough self control to simply accept my free MAC lipstick and continue on my merry way to Sephora. No, I needed to complete a full-on Sephora and MAC haul before feeling satisfied.
It’s officially summer everywhere in the U.S. and here in Texas, it’s HOT. With these ridiculous temperatures and scorching sunshine, my beauty routine has to adapt. I need lighter yet longer lasting foundation, more and more waterproof eye makeup and products that embrace my hair’s natural wavy texture while also keeping sweat and greasies at bay.
As much as I love my neutral, slightly surfer/bohemian casual style, there’s just something about the cuts and fun prints of Lilly Pulitzer that sometimes really catch me by surprise. Although I don’t think I could ever rock one of her brightest pieces, the recent collaboration with Target stirred up quite a frenzy. I actually only slept for one hour on Saturday night – spending all evening on Target.com and their mobile app scouring to “check out” multiple times to no avail. I ended up at the Golden Gates of Target at 7:45am Sunday morning, and managed to escape with two out of the six things I really wanted – along with a couple items that happened to call my name which will be perfect additions to my Hawaii Honeymoon in three weeks. More about my Lilly Pulitzer for Target experience after the jump!
It always seems that when one product runs out, they all follow suit. I seriously feel like I’ve had to repurchase everything in my arsenal lately – from body wash to mascara, eyeliner to a foundation. Let’s get to the details on my mini makeup haul because there are some goodies!
