    Get the Bite set! Even just for how it looks! lol. I tried the yellow and green glosses on my lips and they were basically clear. Have you been purchasing any of the Lip Lab Limited Release lipsticks?

    1. says: Jaa

      Not at all! Have you? Do you love the color selection so far? Buying just for how it looks — that’s so you, Laura! Haha <3

  2. says: Agata

    You are an enabler! I am tempted to get the Hourglass bronzer too but I am a little scared to buy it without seeing it in person first!

    That BB cheek trio is super pretty, that’s a great pick!

    1. says: Jaa

      I know you’d appreciate the Bobbi Brown palette since we seem to have similar taste in makeup! :) I’d totally swatch the Hourglass bronzer in person before I purchase it! Too risky not to! :) Is it starting to get warmer in Michigan yet?

    I JUST got the custom cover drops today (I know, I should have waited, but I was so curious) and it’s AWESOME! Highly recommended, but I look forward to your review!

      1. says: Aimee Vu

        Honestly, I don’t know my MAC color! That’s something I need to fix, but I got match with the G40 shade. I think I am a couple of shades darker than you, so you might be G20. :)

    Girl, I have to say that this is one of the most well organized wish list type posts I’ve ever seen. I bow at your feet, lol. Seriously though, your presentation is amazing. Can you believe I haven’t purchased anything from the sale yet and I’m not sure I will. I usually ship my Sephora orders to a friend as they don’t ship to The Bahamas – but I don’t think I’ll have an opportunity to do that before the sale ends. We’ll see. :-) I feel the same way as you about the Bite Beauty Watercolor Lip Gloss Library – its so beautiful to look at but I don’t know how practical it will be – especially as I’m not typically a lip gloss girl. xo

    1. says: Jaa

      Awww thank you so so much, Kimmy! :))

      I have just had time to finalize my list and will be placing my order soon! I’m so excited! I’m sorry things don’t work out for you this time but maybe it’s a good thing! Money saved! Hehe always look on the bright side right? :D

      Yeah… I’ll probably skip the Bite lip gloss set. I want something that is both beautiful and practical. ;D
