First, I decided to take a loot at Victoria's Secret makeup range, since I had never tried it. I was quite impressed, and ended up swatching their beautiful Illuminating Face Powder in Next To Nude and the Nakeds palette. I found the texture of both the powder and most of the eyeshadows soft and pigmented, so I decided to go for it!

Next stop, was, of course, at Sephora. At that time, I was, I was still thinking about my Chubby Stick. What happened?
Well, it's not my fault, I was caught by surprise... by a makeup artist specialized in brows for Anastatsia, coming from their Beverly Hills studio. Somehow, I didn't receive the invite (although I'm a BI and made several purchases at that particular store), and didn't know she was going to be there. Her day was, of course, fully booked, but since I was there right after the store opened, she had an empty slot for me.
My brows were a mess, because I'm unable to shape them right, and not very good at filling, so I felt like she was sent by the gods to rescue me! She did a very good job, gave me valuable advice (I'll share that in a future post) and I couldn't leave without the kit she used on me, with the appropriate stencil, brush, and powder, and a nude eyeshadow duo, the Beauty Express for Brows and Eyes in Blonde. I also got a little gift, 2 mini-glosses and a mini brow gel. Hopefully, my brows will look better now!
