It has been a moment since I went wild at Sephora. It's not that I haven't wanted to. I mean, does anyone ever not want to? For me it was more that I did not really need anything and decided to really dig in and use my stash. Plus I felt my finances couldn't really take a hit at this time. So instead I opted to start putting money aside each paycheck until I was ready to pick up a few things. The day came and oh was it rewarding!

I wont be able to go into any kind of review on these products since I just picked them up but I will as I start using them. Apparently I had a theme going on as I picked up a lot of luminous products. I am hoping they make my dry skin look and feel more hydrated. 

I have heard so many good things about the Becca Backlight Primeing Filter that I am dying to try it. New in at Sephora was the Becca Aqua Luminous Perfecting Foundation. I want to try these two products together but wonder if instead of giving a radiant appearance I would just come out looking greasy. I guess we will just need to try and see. 

I also picked up the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressend in Moonstone. I have raved before about how much I love this shade in the liquid formula and really enjoyed mixing it with my Bobbie Brown Skin Foundation. Now I can try its powder version as a highlight and even as an eye shadow. 

Another powder that I had been wanting to try is the Hourglass Ambient Strobe Lighting Powder in Brilliant. This is the "yellow" shade of the four shades available. I am a HUGE fan of the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Diffused Light to set my under eye area and my t-zone. Their powders are so sheer and light reflecting and really make your face look ethereal. I am wanting to try the strobe powder along my jawline not necessarily to bake, but to bring more dimension to the face without it being stark white. 

I'm pretty pale these days and felt like all my bronzers were a bit too strong. And while that might change with summer just around the corner, I still wanted something a bit cooler than what I have. I picked up a cult favorite in Too Faced Soleil Matte Bronzer in Milk Chocolate. I am a bit concerned about using it since it is very perfumed but I have not come across any negative reviews. I am willing to give it a go. 

Finally I picked up these two Sephora Collection lip glosses in Perfect Nude and Rose Petal. Any item that I have purchased from the Sephora Collection line has always exceeded my expectations. And since I had a real lip gloss clean out, I was in need of some new ones in classic shades.

Let me know if you have tried any of these items. I am eager to try them all out!
