The Sickness; Sephora and Ulta Haul Chatter

I seem to have a reasonably solid immune system and tend to only be taken down by the sick once or twice a year. Alas, this past week was one of those times. There’s been a lot of hot tea and chicken soup in this house in the last two weeks There wasn’t a whole lot (read: none) in the way of writing in the last week-and-a-half. The time I didn’t spend down and out (and re-watching Cowboy Bebop for the umpteenth time) I spent at work because I have a problem am a sucker didn’t want to leave things unfinished before my vacation (all are true).

Before The Sickness struck, though, I managed to get through my Ulta and Sephora purchases without going overboard.

Sephora Haul

Sephora still had Drunk Elephant’s Come C about Me set in stock, so I went for it. I haven’t gotten into any of the product yet; tragically the skin near my nose has been more reptilian than human since I received it. I’m excited to check out B-Hydra to see about the hype.

Speculation: New Kat Von D Lipstick?

Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipstick

Every now and then, because I evidently find it entertaining to try to sabotage myself, I glance over Sephora’s sale section. This time, I noticed that Kat Von D’s Studded Kiss lipstick line is clearanced for $12 each. In spite of both my No Buy and my lipstick-unfriendly Invisalign, I immediately threw Adora in my cart in hopes that it would hold out. Unsurprisingly, it didn’t; just two days later it was out of stock, along with a ton of other popular shades.

The last time this happened was with their Painted Love lipstick line a few years back. The idea of Adora going away saddened me – but then it was brought back with Studded Kiss.

2014 is passing very quickly, but I think July and August went by the quickest of all for me because a lot of what was on my metaphorical plate was executed and came to pass. A little emo that summer is effectively over (and I only got to go swimming once) but I am so excited to get a break from that, and I hope to focus on the blog a bit more.

But enough about that, you came here to read about my August 2014 Favorites!
