Sephora Chic Week Haul

Hello, All! Sephora's Chic Week started 4/12 (4/11 for VIBs) for all Beauty Insiders. It ends on 4/22, so make sure you take advantage of it before (a) certain products run out of stock or (b) the sale ends!

I want to say that I did pretty good, but I can't say that until the sale is over. I've had my eye on a few products, but I backed out because I do not need them. We'll see...
I went to Sephora on 4/11, so I received a nice tote plus a bag of samples.

- Too Faced Boudoir Eyes palette
- Too Faced Perfect Eyes Waterproof Eyeliners: Perfect Brown & Perfect Black

- Shiseido Facial Cotton Pads
- Sephora brand Supreme Cleansing Oil

100 Point Perks:
- Bumble & Bumble Thickening Hairspray
- Shiseido Bio-Performance Advanced Super Restoring Cream
- Givenchy Le Rogue: 103 Brun Createur

And that would be it for my haul! Thanks so much for stopping by!

{Review} NARS Jungle Red Lipstick

Hello everyone! I'm so sorry for being so inactive lately! School has been super hectic and I seriously cannot wait for this semester to be over... I will try my best to respond and get back to everyone sometime this week!

In the meantime, here's a quick review of the NARS Jungle Red Lipstick.
This lipstick is a semi-matte bright red. I believe I've found my perfect red lipstick shade!

It can be applied with a lip brush or directly from the tube. I like to apply it with a lip brush to control how much color to pack on, but whenever I'm feeling a little more adventurous and brave, I apply directly from the tube for more pigmentation.


PROS
- super pigmented and smooth
- glides on effortlessly
- long-lasting
- leaves a nice stain behind
- packaging is lovely

CONS
- can be drying (make sure to moisturize before applying)
- will feather out if applied without lipliner

I love, love, and love this lipstick and recommend it to any one who is looking for a bright red lipstick!
