I decided that the most appropriate way to describe my shopping adventures during events the likes of the Sephora V.I.B. sale or the Barneys Bag Event is to call them Lolapalooza-- since for me it really is a happy type of festival, and I arguably hear music when roused by these events. So with that said, here are the things that I brought home from my most recent Lolapalooza!
I had a few gift cards with decent balances on them to mitigate the damage that I did- so I came out relatively unscathed. I really didn't need anything, but I really wanted to get a bottle of the Caudalie Divine Oil that I ostensibly bathe myself in every single time I walk into Sephora. I figured that it was time to just break down and get a bottle of this deliciously luxurious oil, and I am so happy that I did. For some reason I walked out of there with more haircare products than I had intended, but I am ever on the lookout things that work well for my finicky naturally curly hair. I had been meaning to swing by Chaz Dean's Salon on Fountain Avenue in Hollywood for the last few years, but I always manage to forget to go despite the fact that it easily accessible. Therefore, when I saw WEN at Sephora I finally grabbed a bottle of the Sweet Almond Mint Cleansing Conditioner. Ouidad products have been on my list to try for a while, but when one of the Sephora sales associates gushed over my whacked-out spiral locks-literally as I was leaving the store- he said that he had a pile of samples that he wanted me to try. He was so sweet, and the products felt so good that I grabbed one of the sets and headed back to the growing line at the register. Cha-Ching!FutureDerm Time-Release Retinol 0.5% (review forthcoming), and needed something quickly so I decided to try Glow by Dr. Brandt since I have heard favorable things about it, and I wanted to try a 2% concentration of retinol.
All I can say is just you wait to see the gorgeous color of this Guerlain KissKiss Gloss-- yes, I hear you-- I need another lip gloss like I need a a hole in the head, but please-- this was too gorgeous to pass up. You know I'm a magpie at heart and need to bring these pretty shiny things back to my nest to fawn over them.
