I hated the Becca Rose Quartz highlighter. It looked powdery on the skin with barely any sheen/glow.. and it would just sit on top of the skin.. I really tried to like it, but the three times I used it.. I ended up putting another highlighter over it. I almost never return things, but that went back.. if I didn't send it back - I would have thrown it against the wall .. I was so annoyed with it.I went to the Sephora store to buy the Milk Cooling Water, but it's sold out in store and online. Also had no luck finding Becca Rose Quartz powder. They didn't had the Drunk Elephant "day/night stocking stuffers" that were cheap but they had the Aha kit. However, I bought a little duo kit from First Aid Beauty and the ABH Makeup by Mario palette. I thought that the palette was all insta-hype and meh, but the quality of the eye shadows was top notch great. It really is worth the hype, but I still don't like the Mario MUA. I was surprised that there was a lot in stock at the store because it seems to be sold out online. They have a lot of the ABH Modern Renaissance palette in the store, but I'll buy it next month.
The Mario palette is so, so, so good. I bought it when it first came out, then bought a second one for a present during the VIBrouge sale.. and now I am thinking of finding my sister something else and keeping the other one as a backup.. lol.
I wish I would have known how fantastic the Huda liquid lipsticks are.. I would have bought more during the sale!Hi everyone!! Hope you've all recieved your sale orders by now! I'm waiting on my last one to ship still, and I'm so impatient!
I ended up getting:
- all three Huda lipstick/liner sets (nude, mauve, dark -- I LOVE these!!)
- Huda lip contour in Famous
- backup of the ABH Mario palette
- Too Faced Hangover Rx primer
- Bite Beauty Agave lip mask (my HG)
- Josie Maran plumping lip balm
- Fresh Skincare Power Players set
Luckily my sister is still VIB so I was able to use her account during the second weekend. Still annoyed that Rouge got the short end of the stick there but on the bright side, my sis is now about $30 away from Rouge!
I was also looking at the Too Faced Brow Quickie brow gel but I got overwhelmed from deciding between that, Benefit, and Givenchy so I just decided to can it and order that later. Has anyone tried these (or MAC Brow Set)? My brows are pretty full but have some sparse areas from overplucking as a teen, so I'm looking for something that will fill in those areas while still having enough hold to keep coarser hairs in place.
Oh, and, Black Friday sneak peaks start on Friday! Who's excited?
RE: Black Friday.. I can not wait for the sneak peaks. I hope they're better than the ones for Ulta.. I couldn't find a single thing in Ulta sneak peak - that I was interested in..
I swatched the Ultimate Glow kit and was unimpressed.. ABH seems to hit everything out of the park, so it is surprising that everyone is so disappointed in it.Returning my metal palette and abh ultimate glow kit. They both are not my cup of tea
