My New York and Company and Sephora Spring Haul

Makeup: MAC

Hey yall!  A lot of you enjoyed my Old Navy haul post and as promised I have for you a New York & Company haul post along with Sephora.



I really love New York & Company!  There was a time that I was so loyal to their brand that it became the only place I shopped for clothes, but that changed about 2 years ago when I started to wear Old Navy clothes as well.



NY&CO clothes fit me perfectly.  I look great in their clothes and their clothes stretch for a good and comfortable fit.  I love all their bold colors and prints which really make their clothes stand out.  



I know I said my style is casual, yet chic, but when I wear prints I can really go all out!  I remember when I went to work with bold red and pink colored floral pants one day and my boss had to do a double take looking at how loud my pants were.  Since I work at a conservative office my outfit was a bit much so I had to tone it down a bit.



Before my family’s trip to The Great Smoky Mountains, I did a bit of shopping at the mall since I left work early and had time to kill before I picked the girls up from their childcare (don’t you just love shopping without the kids around?).  First stop was NY&CO and they were having a 50% off everything sale.  But what ticked me off was finding out a few days later they were having an up to 80% off sale.  That really made me want to return all my stuff but I didn’t feel like dealing with the hassle of going back.



Another thing I like about NY&CO is that they’re always having sales, the price on the tags are never what you pay for.  You can really maximize your savings by using their coupons too.  I can get a lot of clothes and accessories from them paying less than $100.



During this shopping haul, I got myself a pair of palazzo soft pant-floral, floral midi sheath dress, embossed jacquard dress, mercer soft popover shirt (also got a tank top to go underneath), a pink short sleeve  cardigan sweater (not pictured), a few pairs of earrings, a necklace, and a jeweled flat sandals.  


Let me know which look you like on me

After my shopping at NY&CO, I went to Macy’s and purchased a few shoes from their clearance rack.  I haven’t worn them yet since they are more of winter style shoes.

Last stop on my shopping trip was Sephora.  I have run out of face primer and was in need of more so I had to go to Sephora to pick me up some.  I didn’t want to continue to use the previous primer I’ve been using since that primer didn’t have a matte finish so a makeup consultant directed me to a primer called Becca that she said a lot of people have been raving about it because it make your makeup last all day with less shine and also it helps make your foundation glide on smoothly when you’re applying it to your face.



When I’m wearing makeup I like to contour my face so I was checking out the contour section and found Smashbox contour pencils that included contour, highlight, and bronze.  The makeup consultant said it was good so I added it in my cart.



Last thing I needed was a good moisturizer.  I have been terrible lately of not moisturizing my face and it shows!  My face hasn’t been as smooth and I’m having break outs bad but that can also be from stress and not drinking enough water.  The skincare consultant pointed me in a direction of a skincare kit with a moisturizer, facial wash, toner, and powder wash called Amore Pacific.  She said this was her favorite skincare line and had me touch her face to see how soft and smooth it was- weird.  I popped that pack in my cart too.



I knew my bill was going to be high and that is why I don’t shop at Sephora often.  It is the Holy Grail when it comes to beauty products but the way my bank account is set up, it’ll scream and fuss at me.  I consider going to Sephora as a treat to myself every now and then.



Out of all the stuff I gotten from Sephora I only liked my skincare set and the facial primer.  With the facial primer I find myself still a bit oily throughout the day and I continue to keep blotting my t-zone on my face but it does make my makeup last all day.  Those contour pencils were not all that good because it is cream base and also made my skin oily, I found myself sharping those pencils after almost each use.  I’ll stick with powder base contour palettes.   The skincare set is great but only wish it came in a bigger size, but I do like how it’s easy to travel with.


 

 I’m wondering, which beauty stores do you like the best, Sephora or Ulta?

    How is the primer with pore minimizing? Your skin looks awesome so I don't even know if you have that problem, but I figured it couldn't hurt to ask ;)

    The B&W patterned dress is my favorite look this time!

    1. I don't really have a problem when it comes to my pores, my problem is having oily skin and need a primer to help prevent shine. I hate looking greasy at the end of the day.

    1. Hehe thanks Stacie! I use to do haul posts but stopped for awhile so I'm glad to bring it back. NYC has clothes that are more casual too so you won't have to be so dressed up.
