Weekend Rewind. What's in my Bag?

Well Hello Lovelies! I hope you all had a great weekend.

I spent this weekend in Louisville, KY visiting family friends. My Nana (mom's mom)
that lives in FL flew in Thursday night and mom, her, and I drove to Nashville
where we stayed at the luxurious Red Roof Inn!! : )

Friday morning we journeyed to Louisville and our first stop was what other than
SEPHORA!!!! Since I had mom and Nana's wallet nearby I tried to milk it for
what it was worth!! Don't judge... you know you would do the same thing... I only see my
Nana a few times a year... I deserve some treats!

I am going to break up this week's Weekend Rewind in Part I and II. This edition will
feature a few goodies we grabbed at Sephora and part II will feature some clothes
from Macy's. Ok, so wanna see what I got?!

Sephora in Louisville.
Louisville was such a gorgeous place. Our friend's house was right across the street
from Southern Baptist Theology school. That area was just so charming. Gorgeous
neighborhoods, houses, fall trees, farms and horses! Southern Charm at it's finest!

Me and who is that on my arm??!!
It's a Pippa sighting... oooooo!!

Ok, the first thing I picked up was Make Up Forever Aqua cream.

What are these?
A long lasting pigmented waterproof cream.
You can use these on their own or use them as a primer and add shadows on top
for more drama or glam!

Shade 15 is on the left and is a shimmery brown taupe color.
Shade 13 is on the right and is a champagne shimmer color.

These retail for $22. Kind of pricy for one single cream I will admit, but these
are colors I have wanted for a while. I do think these will last a long time as well.

Here is a swatch of each color.
Shade 15 (shimmery taupe) in on left
Shade 13 (shimmery champagne) is on right.

I have not used shade 15 yet, but am LOVING shade 13 as my base color and adding
MAC Satin Taupe or matte brown in crease.

Foundation may not be that interesting to some people, but this is a new
foundation I have been really wanting to try.

This is Make Up Forever HD foundation. If you follow beauty stuff at all you
have probably heard of this. Kim Kardashian uses this foundation. It was named
one of Allure Best of Beauty Awards.

This foundation is oil free and offers medium to full coverage that covers skin
imperfections while remaining invisible on screen and in real life.

So, yeah... I'm not really on any big screens but wanted to give this a try!
After using it a couple of times since purchasing I like. It's very different from what I have
been using (Clinique Even Better.) MUF has a more watery consistency
and is not near as thick as the Clinque. It blends so well and quickly into your
skin. So far I'm liking it, but will let you know if anything changes!
Retails for $40

My mother had this in her bag and after being told I looked "pale" one day
I grabbed her bronzer and gave it a try.
LOVE this bronzer. You can go and read all the nearly 2,000 reviews this powder
gets from Sephora, but this is truly a great bronzer!

The Laguna shade is perfect for me... it looked a little dark in the compact and
wasn't sure if I could pull it off this time of the year. But, do not be fooled b/c
the color blends so nicely!! Perfect color. The texture is so soft and feels great
on your skin. This is a matte bronzer so if you aren't into glitter this is the bronzer
for you! I have a new love! This will be a staple in my bag!
Retails for $33
This is a product my mom bought for my Nana. Mom bought this online a few
months ago and really loves it. I used it for the first time this weekend and it leaves
your skin feeling super soft! It has a nice warm smell to it and exfoliates your skin
in a gentle way! Now is a great time of the year to exfoliate your skin from the summer
and any tan you may have left over.
Retails for $18

So, this completes Part I and the beauty haul of our weekend. I will update you
this week with a few clothing pieces that have been added to my wardrobe!

Have a great night! Go watch Kim's Fairy Tale Wedding! : )

  1. Ohh Pippa!!! Come visit me!! I used the make up forever foundation that turns into a powder and didn't care for it. You know I love some Nars products though-- I need to try some bronzer and Becca said she loves her Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer.


What’s The Story, Brooke?

I'm Brooke. Brooke Story to be exact... hence the title of my blog. I'm southern, still barely in my twenties, and have a few too many lip glosses in my purse.
