Mini haul - Sephora

When one of my friends whom I've known since high school was going to New York and was happy to be my shopper, I quickly made a small shopping list (small because she travels on a budget and backpacks). There were about five items on my list, but I said to her to purchase what she can find, as some of the items were kits/gift sets that may have been online exclusive. 

She managed to pick up two items for me...
The Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in Diffused Heat and Dior Addict Fluid Stick in Tiny Pink.


She was telling me that she got the sales assistant to help her pick a colour. The sales assistant was apparently around my skin tone, and was swatching all the colours so they could pick the perfect shade for me. I thought that was so sweet of both of them to go through all that trouble! I must say they did a stellar job, as I'm wearing it today and it is the perfect shade! I'm quite tempted to do another Sephora haul and pick up another one of these bad boys.


I mentioned this in a review I did for the Dior Addict Fluid Stick in Mirage earlier this month (read here). I've only tried this shade (sparingly) late last night before the husband and I went out to get some carrots (and ended up coming back with more than that), and I thought it smelt a little different to the Mirage shade. It's really pleasant but still felt dry on the lips. I'll have to try it on top of a lip balm and see if it's any better.


I absolutely love the shades that she picked up for me. I think I NEED another one of the hourglass ambient lighting blush though!
