3 things from Sephora

This is a long overdue post, because I purchased these items around Christmas time. But being that I don't usually buy things from Sephora, this is something I thought would be fun to share. I'm completely clueless when it comes to makeup, but I'm always curious so I like to play around with it here and there. Most of the time though, my face just ends up looking no better than what I started out with. But that doesn't stop me from going to Sephora and looking at all the pretty makeup and beauty-related things.

Here's the 3 things I picked up:

Aanastasia Brow Wiz
Having been strangely obsessed with having some eyebrow game going on lately, I picked up the Anastasia brow pencil. I heard great reviews about it, and for the price, I definitely had high expectations. I find the pencil extremely easy to apply, but apparently I didn't get the "a little goes a long way" memo because I used a good few inches of the pencil after just my third use. Because the pencil is super thin and I happened to chose a light shade, it's easy to keep on applying without noticing a big difference. I like that it creates a very soft and natural look however. With my black hair and medium skin tone, I wanted to soften my features a bit and picked out the shade in "medium brown". It lived up to my expectations, but for a college student like me, the price is just a little too steep. I'll be keeping my eyes open for a more affordable alternative after using up this one.

I picked this up from those display boxes on the side while waiting in line to pay for my things, telling myself that there's no such thing as having too many lip balms. I'm really happy I got it. It has a light flowery scent and I bring it with me everywhere I go. It's very hydrating, which means I don't have to constantly worry about reapplying it throughout the day.

I'm putting all my hopes of getting rid of my stubborn blackheads onto this little pad right here. It has a suction thing on the back that you can use to stick it on the shower wall or the bathroom mirror, which is super helpful when letting it dry. There's also an area on the bottom end of the pad that has massage beads instead of the soft bristles. I usually stick to the bristles, but the massage beads are great for when you want to try something different. I like that it gives my face a deep cleanse, but after using it for over a month now, those blackheads just won't budge. Maybe the fact that I haven't been using it on a daily basis could be why I'm not seeing much of a difference. Will definitely keep you updated on that! As you can probably tell, I'm pretty horrible at keeping a consistent skin care regime. Does anyone else go through this?
