So around this time every year I have a birthday. Pretty much no matter what. Luckily, my birthday usually coincides with my favorite holiday. Day light savings day. And not that bull shit in the spring. The fall back an hour day light saving day. Best holiday ever. Another perk with my birthday is it also happens right around the time Sephora launches their holiday gift sets. More bang for your buck, my fav holiday, and a year older. Who could dream of more? “I mean it ain’t a bentley, but I guess it’ll do.”
I used to hesitate with the holiday gift sets because my fear was “what if I love something so much that I want to have it all the time and it is a holiday special?” But then that craziness got hit with some realness and I took a good hard look at myself. It was then that I realized, I have never needed to buy something from one of those gift sets again. Typically, they are targeted much for the holidays (day light savings day included) and next year I am going to want something different anyways… Seriously, sometimes I really wonder who the hell I think I am. I mean, as we learned here, the girl in the elevator of my building which I have lived in for almost 5 years can’t recognize me because I change my look so often and here I am worried about wanting to buy the same make-up I bought last year in a gift set. Really? It is like I don’t know myself at all…
After answering some hard hitting questions about one’s self, I ended up going with the following choice to celebrate my favorite holiday & birthday.
Which includes –Urban Decay Moondust Eyeshadow in Space Cowboy Nars Lip Gloss in Gold Digger Nails Inc™ Kensington Caviar Gel Effect Plumping Top Coat Josie Maran Coconut Watercolor Cheek Gelèe Lancôme Hypnôse Star in Noir Midnight Stila Stay All Day 10-In-One HD Illuminating Beauty Balm with Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Sephora Collection False Eye Lashes in Celebrity Too Faced 3 Way Lash Lining Tool
Clearly, not full size products, but still I believe they will last you until you are ready to completely revamp your look.
Oh. And. Thanks for the birthday wishes!!!!here, here, and here, XOXO behind the mirror***
