Another Sephora Haul or Rebecca Bloomwood Ain't Got Nothing On Me

Clearly I have a shopping problem, especially when it comes to Sephora. I've reached VIB status for the first time ever and it's only 3 months into the year. Seriously this has got to stop. Not that I'm buying much I don't need. And this is actually a really tiny haul. And my justifications are only a little bit pathetic.

 I bought another YSL Volupte Sheer Candy, A Sephora Professional Fan Brush and a Murad Moisturizer with SPF 20.

There's no close up of the Brush so I'll talk about that now. This is the brush that my favorite Sephora guy, Maxwell, used on me when he applied the Nars Deep Throat, and he recommended I buy it, but I didn't, and then for a few weeks I've regretted it. It only took me a couple tries to learn to use it properly, but now I don't think I'll ever use anything else to apply blush. It's the absolute best my blush has ever looked.

The Murad Anti-Aging Moisturizer for Blemish Prone Skin with SPF 20 was a necessity. I'm crazy pale, ya know in case you hadn't noticed before, and have sensitive skin with acne issues and hyper pigmentation which is only made worse by the sun. Also at 26 I am not getting any younger. Since I needed a new sunscreen and have been doing a month long test on Murad products anyway, I figured this couldn't hurt to try. So far I'm fan.

 Then, as Fleur De Force would say, I made a cheeky little YSL purchase. I absolutely adore the Volupte Sheer Candy Glossy Balm that I already have, so I just had to pick up another. This time I got (insert drum roll here)

#4 Succulent Pomegranate. This is what I was wearing in yesterday's Stylish Sunday Post, and I'm completely in love with it. It's definitely bolder than #9 Cool Guava, but it is stunning. I really love bright lip colors, because they make me so happy. I can promise that this will be my color of summer. I'm so in love with it.

The boxes you see in the background are actually part of how I store my nail polish. If you're interested I'll do a post on that in the future.

See I told you this was a very small haul. Just a couple things I needed, and a little bit of luxury.
