I’m not ashamed to say that I spend a small fortune on makeup and skincare products in a year. I love them. All of them. I have a particular weakness for lipsticks and blush. It’s probably time someone held an intervention, but until then, I’ll hoard all the pretty things and lord over my collection like the self-satisfied consumer I am.
I’m also an idiot. I just purchased several things from Sephora that I LOVE, not knowing that the VIB sale was right around the corner.
The truth is, I don’t really NEED anything to add to my collection. I could have been boring and bought things I use regularly, but I wanted to get something I might not otherwise. Without further ado…
After a bit of back-and-forth, the Fresh Sugar Lip Legends Collection (unfortunately, now permanently out of stock on Sephora) ended up in the basket. The full price set is $55.00. With my 20% off and free shipping, I paid $47.08. Not. Cheap. But worth every penny. These are 0.07 oz tubes of their color collection. These lip balms are the BEST. I usually treat myself to the full-size Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment in untinted for my birthday each year. They smell amazing. The texture is perfect. I love lipstick, but there are times when I just can’t. I just can’t care about applying perfectly, reapplying throughout the day, and caring about whether it ends up all over me. These little beauties are perfect for the days when I do not want any effort.
I swatched them all, but the swatches were pretty faint. That’s the point I suppose.
Just a bit of color, lots of moisture, and lots of convenience. I had to break my own “one lipstick in my bag at one time” rule with these, and I dumped them all in a pocket. I want them accessible to me at all times because why not? I’ll be anxious to see which one I reach for most. I’ve had a Rose before, and used the entire tube down to the scrapings. I have absolutely no buyers remorse on these.
