Sephora Black Friday Sale

10 Goodies for $10? I'm in.

1. Korres - I have the lotion and I've tried the balm. It's a win-win situation.
2. Buxom - I have the mascara but I haven't tried the liner. The mascara lengthens and volumizes extremely well and doesn't leave that cakey, crunchy effect afterwards! My lashes end up looking naturally long and millionized (haha). This has got to be one of my favorite mascaras... I end up wearing it only during the daytime, though, because it's not waterproof. I guess you can't have it all... The liner is very long-wearing, and sets really fast, but people have been complaining that it's not creamy enough.

1. Josie Maran Argan Color Stick - Just b/c it's Josie Maran and I've heard rave reviews. I'm not entirely sure if I'll love the shimmer, though.
2. The Art of Shaving - This might be good to give to some of my guy friends... I don't know anything about shaving "essentials" for men, as they call it, but maybe they'd like it? I don't know... Guys, what do you think?

1. Kat Von D - Adora Fragrance
2. Tarte - MultiplEYE primer and lights, camera, lashes! Duo (I prefer the Dior maximizer primer...)
3. Stila - Glitz and Glam Palette and Lip Glaze (Aren't all of these mini Stila palettes around $10?)
4. Bare Minerals - All Decked Out (Never tried this, but a friend of mine loves Bare Minerals!)
5. Tokidoki - Chromatico Eyeshadow Palette (I never really found the packaging enticing...)
6. Sephora - Beauty to Go Brush Set (I'm not sure about this set in particular, but I own this, and I love it. The bristles are really soft!)

So I was in Austin a couple weeks ago, and visited a friend of mine who's an up-and-coming photographer. I sheepishly asked him to take some pictures of me... mostly to have some personal pics of outfits (rather than googling images), but it ended up being a testshoot and I must say... I have no talent whatsoever as a model. DONE AND DONE. However, I guess I'll post the only viable picture from the shoot...

Check out Waytao's work here and his flickr stream here.

On another note, my box of Sephora goodies came in the mail last week, and I'll upload pics and reviews of that sometime soon... I've been quite busy with work and yes... I am also blogging during my lunch break, ha! :P

Anyways, here's a peek of this OPI for Sephora nail polish duo I bought:
