NEW Divergent Collection at Sephora (aka I've Died and Gone to Heaven)

Okay, yeah. Take a moment and read over the title again. I'm not joking. IT'S REALLY HAPPENING, GUYS. The moment when  beautiful books series crosses over with the cosmetics world is an amazing one. Sephora released some photos a couple days ago.

In the line there's the *everything* package, which has seriously some of the prettiest eyeshadows I have ever seen. There's also the smaller version (2nd photo) which is still flipping amazing. There's also a nail kit, which I don't have pictures of, but I think will be awesome!

Even better, it includes eyeshadows that are shimmery, and apparently create the illusion that the glitter is floating ABOVE YOUR EYELID. And that they change when it's applied wet vs. dry. Definitely something to check out. 

There's no official date, but check the Sephora website beginning early March, and the stuff should arrive in stores closer to the movie.

Now excuse me while I go scream into my pillow out of excitment and interrogate the salespeople at Sephora for more information.

Happy Valentine's Day! (+ New Loves!)

Happy Valentine's Day! Our second Le Renifleur Vday! As you could probably tell, I didn't do the Valentine's Day coverage of things this year (I've been scoping out the new summer releases) but I do have a couple things I think you need to see. (Just a warning, you might fall in LOVE!)

Softlips Lip Balm Cubes

I've never tried the softlips brand before, but these are just so cute! They kind of look like an EOS knockoff, with the whole shape thing, but definitely worth trying! They're currently only being sold at Mentholatum, the parent company of SoftLips, and for preorder, but they're being shipped out today. I think they'll be hitting stores in a couple weeks.

Burberry Brit (Sheer)

Can we just take a minute to talk about this, please? I had a heart attack when I smelled it in Sephora yesterday. It's so flipping fantabulous, words can't even explain. It's the newest Burberry fragrance, and it's amazing. Just go smell it, okay?

Harrods Monochrome London Barrel

No, I do not live in London. I can't afford to buy basically anything at Harrods. But that doesn't stop me from looking. Not at all. This handbag is seriously perfection. It has a cross body strap, zippers, pockets, and a serious kick-butt design. THIS IS MY DREAM BAG. 

And then....the new Bath & Body Works Summer Destination Line!  I hope to have some more information to share with you guys soon, but, they are coming into stores on the 17th, so keep your eyes peeled. Check out photos HERE!

STILA Eyeshadow Trio in Rose Gold

Hey guys! Sorry for the prolonged posting, the last week has been seriously crazy. Anyway, I'm back!

Today's special is the Stila Eyeshadow Trio in Rose Gold. Can I start by saying that the picture on the Stila/Ulta/Sephora website (the one on the intro picture above) does absolutely NO justice to the actual trio at all?

The colors, as you can see above, are actually much more pigmented, and a lot lighter. (And yeah, Ive got really long fingers. Don't judge.)  I first heard about this trio in this video, and I've been obsessed ever since I got it!

The colors, while I don't think they have any particular names, are taupe, burgundy red, and champagne. When I first saw it in person, I thought that the colors were pretty dark, but unless you go crazy, you can make a really subtle and pretty, shimmery look, even by just using one of the colors.

For the pigmentation, I use mine with the BareMinerals Prime Time eye primer (a mini tube that came with a duo) so it's more pigmented than if you use it without. The color payoff is amazing when used on top of a white/tan base or primer.

I know a lot of people are often concerned about too much glitter, but these really have more of a subtle shimmer in them that doesn't scream "YAY GLITTER PARTY WHOOP UNICORNS IN DA HOUSE". Because no one wants that at all.

As for the texture, it's not as creamy as per say, one of the Naked palettes (Urban Decay) or some of the Too Faced ones, but it's definitely better than one of the travel palettes from a while ago that I have from Stila, which has a really hard and super powdery texture. (I think it's the Lovely in London one.) It looks sort of like a baked eyeshadow, but it's texture and consistency is super similar as the Naked palettes- the best consistency ever!

Pictures really don't do this trio justice, you really just need to swatch them yourself. I attempted to take some swatch photos numerous times, but the lighting just couldn't get the colors to show up as they really are. Instead, here's my descriptions of each color.

Lightest Color (champagne): A very light tan color that'll look great on everyone, it's almost at the borderline between a subtle gold and silver, which I love. It's a perfect highlight color, or just an overall main color.

Taupe (silver): Once again, a warm, borderline gold-silver that's seriously amazing. While it appears gray in the picture, you can see in person once it's swatched or on your eye, it creates a stunning taupe color that you can just wear alone.

Burgundy Red (dark brown): This is the darkest color in the palette, and is best described as a light copper. It's super pretty, and while it's a bit dark for just wearing alone (in my opinion) it's super pretty.

This trio is super versatile, and any color could be worn alone for a great effect, mix two together, create a subtle or dramatic look, or if you wanted to, a smokey eye.

I'd recommend this to everyone! The two lighter colors, worn alone or together, are great for school or just casual days, and put in with the copper/burgundy, you can dress it up for special occasions.

Overall, this trio is definitely a most have! I purchased mine at Ulta (with a coupon) but you can get it at Ulta or Sephora. (Ulta usually has more coupons, though!)
