Another Sephora Play bag. I'm not quite sure what to do with these bags but they're taking over!


Info sheet.


Urban Decay Perversion Mascara ($10.00) - This is in my top three mascaras and I switch between this and the other two depending on what I have recently received or purchased. (Side note, the other two are Smashbox Full Exposure and Too Faced Better Than Sex.) Perversion is one of the best mascaras I've tried and I highly suggest getting it. It adds volume and length to the extreme!


Sephora Collection Contour Eye Pencil (Flirting Game) ($4.00) - This is a gorgeous color and the formula is really creamy, which is a win. It is a shimmer pencil so that means I can't wear it as an eyeliner, only to use as part of an eye look. I'm really picky and want my liners to be matte-r than matte but this is nice to apply to the center of the eyelid for a pop of shimmer.


MAKE UP FOREVER Artist Shadow (I544/Pink Granite) ($6.68) - Can you believe this is my first MUFE shadow? I've been looking at a palette but I haven't put the dollar bills down yet (I have soooo many palettes already). I like the formula of this, it's creamy without being too creamy, but a matte would speak the truth on whether or not this is worth the money. Also, I don't currently have a z-palette so this little guy will stay in this packaging permanently (or at least until I get enough individual eye shadows such as this to warrant getting a z-palette).


Caudalie Resveratrol Lift Eye Lifting Balm ($19.84) - Wowza, super expensive eye cream! If my random tweets recently have meant anything, it's been that my realization that I have WRINKLES and I am not 16 anymore. I did some research and found a good system for skincare but I have put this in the pile to try out once I make sure this system I'm using doesn't break me out. Unless this works miracles, though, I won't buy a replacement.


Lancome Energie de Vie The Smoothing & Glow Boosting Liquid Moisturizer ($5.21) - Hello, winter, my name is Kiersten and I have ridiculously dry skin. See above for skin system and why this hasn't been tried out yet. I tested this on my hand though and no breakouts, so that's all I need to know for the future.


CLEAN Reserve Blonde Rose (Sample) - This is a floral so I'm not the biggest fan but it's not like bright, shiny, happy floral it's more like a dark and sultry floral, so it's not terrible. Sample sizes like this go in a glass that are for backup or when I need to mix up my scent for the day!


This bag was valued at $45.73 which is awesome for a $10 bag! The items were awesome, I received one of my holy grail items and the rest was an awesome addition!
