I decided to go on a weekend getaway to Miami Beach, FL. I was hungry for good food, palm trees, sunshine, and the ocean breeze. While in Florida I decided to go on a Sephora haul. I discovered the most AMAZING store by the name Sparkle And Shine Darling while strolling around. From Chandeliers, to glitter, free cookies and cupcakes--I found myself in heaven! Check out my Sephora and SSD haul!!!
Tarte Sea Foundation with spf 15 $39: Medium-full coverage foundation. This is perfect for someone who is between combo/normal to dry skin. The foundation helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while giving the skin a smooth and healthy finish. Major ingredients include a blend of algae and marine flower extracts. This foundation may not be a good fit for someone with oily skin since the ingredients do contains coconut oil and talc (good alternative would be Nars illuminating foundation oil-free).
* I never recommend just a foundation spf on it's on- Make sure to still use your favorite sunscreen that's at least 30+
Tatcha Polished Classic Rice Enzyme Powder $15-65: All in one cleanser, exfoliator, and toner in one. It's gentle and and rice enzyme powder is so fine that it'll get just the right amount of dead skin while not stripping your natural oils. Major ingredients include green tea, papaya extracts, pearl, and rice. Powder is to be mixed with water which then creates a cushiony lather.
Tatcha Luminous Dewy Skin Mist $48: hydrating luxurious makeup setting spray that provides moisture. Contains Squalane (olive-provides moisture), rice extracts, thyme, silk extracts, and green tea. Antioxidant filled- this product helps fight free radical attack (they destroy your cells= aging skin). No buildup or residue= keeper!
Fresh Soy Conditioning Eye Makeup Remover $26: Take care of your eyes! they're the first to age. This rich velvety product removes all traces of makeup including waterproof. Soy proteins and rich amino acids condition the skin around the eye as well as lashes. Contains vitamain C and E (antioxidants! our friends :) ) Did i mention that it contains and smells like cucumber and ginseng? Make sure to use a gentle made for the eyes cotton pad to remove the makeup!
Benefit Cosmetics Dandelion Box o' Powder Blush $15-29.00: A gorgeous pale-pink, pressed blush powder. It comes with a super cute brush that helps to give a perfect application. I've always eyed this product but thought it may be too pale for me. Try it on your face- the color payoff is so beautiful.
Benefit Cosmetics POREfessional face primer $12-31: MY go to!! This can be used before or after makeup application or even without makeup! I use it to hide the appearance of my pores but also fine lines under my eyes and forehead. Try it out by dabbing it on. I like to purchase the travel size and touch up my under eyes with it. This product is oil-free and contains antioxidant vitamin E.
My adorable "Champagne is my spirit animal" bag and coffee mug can be found at Sparkle and Shine Darling in Miami, FL BUT I heard that they will be opening an online shop soon!!
