Fresh Sugar Hydrating Lip Balm Watermelon, Lime Mint, and Blood Orange to Get Your Glossy Lips this Summer

I receive a small commission if you shop through my link.

Fresh Sugar Hydrating Lip Balm is now available in new flavors for Summer 2020. Watermelon, Lime Mint, and Blood Orange are three new yummy flavors available in this hydrating lip balm that gives lips a smoother, plumper appearance thanks to emollient oils from grape seeds, apricot kernels, and black currant seeds.

I purchased the Fresh Sugar Lip Caramel Hydrating Balm when it came out but I was def disappointed at the lack of pigment. I’m curious to see if Blood Orange will be anymore pigmented as it sure does look like it is! These don’t appear to be limited edition! Looks like they are exclusive to Sephora but they might just be permanent addictions to the Fresh collection going forward.

Are you a fan of the Fresh Sugar Hydrating Lip Balm formula? Thinking about purchasing these new shades?

Do share!

P.S. How you doing today? Hanging in there? Me too! Just taking it day by day. I had a massive bicker with my sister today. Fun! We don’t fight much but when we do there are fireworks! I think tensions are just running high with all this craziness right now. I’m going to delete my news app off my phone for a few hours everyday because I swear I spend way too much time looking at the headlines every few minutes! I’ve never had a moment of anxiety in my life but the news makes me anxious as hell. What are some ways you relax and de-stress? Do share ’em!

Sephora Beauty Insider Spring 2020 Savings Event Up to 20% Off

I receive a small commission if you shop through my link.

Sephora Beauty Insider Spring 2020 Savings Event and Sale is upcoming on April 17th with a savings of up to 20% Off your total at Sephora.com. The promo code is SPRINGSAVE and the sale starts early for VIB Rouge Members on April 17th but VIB and BI Members can take advantage on different takes which I’ve listed below.

The code is available for unlimited uses online at sephora.com. I’d like to tell you it’ll be available in stores too but it’s hard to say when stores will re-open at this point so we might need to prepare for online shopping this year. I’ll be preparing guides with recommendations to help you shop. There’s plenty of new items available for Spring and even Summer which I’m sure you’ll want to take advantage of.

Here’s some helpful tips for shopping the sale.

Take Advantage of Shopping the Sale During the Sale
As with year’s past I always recommend checking out the Sephora Sale section during the sale. There are many, many items slashed 40% or more that you can get an extra 20% off on using your code! Shopping the sale during the sale is always a great way to score a deal.

When does the sale start?

When does it happen? What times does it start?

  • VIB Rouge April 17th to May 1st 20% Off with code SPRINGSAVE
  • VIB April 21st to April 19th 15% Off with code SPRINGSAVE
  • BI April 23rd to April 27th 10% Off with code SPRINGSAVE

Can I shop online, at the store, at JCPenny?
Typically the sale is available online at sephora.com, at Sephora stores, and of course, at Sephora stores located inside JCPenny. Unfortunately, this year we have no idea when stores will open so I think it’s safe to say that it’s online shopping for us all right now!

Remember, don’t shop all the brands at Sephora.
20% off is an awesome deal but many, many brands price match lately or even offer a bigger discount during the Sephora Sales Event and this year, with so many people at home, I expect really big discounts and sales happening across the board. Select and choose the brands you want wisely and double check they aren’t having a better sale before checking out!

Get Your Cart Ready Early
It doesn’t hurt to start virtually adding items into your cart now. I don’t foresee things selling out but you never can tell which means it doesn’t hurt to get your items into your cart early. This will also help you from making spontaneous purchases later!

What If An Item I Want Sells Out?
If the item you want sells out check back! In my experience they tend to restock items within a day or so which hopefully happens this year as well!

Can I use the promo code more than once? Do they limit what I buy? Are their exclusions?
You can use the code for unlimited uses. They do tend to exclude the Ordinary from the sale at times not sure if that will happen this year but we’ll have to wait and see! I’ve never seen them limit the amount of a single product you can purchase with the exception of Drunk Elephant.

I’ll have more guides coming shortly.

What do you plan on purchasing from the Sephora Beauty Insider Spring 2020 Savings Event?

Feeling the Love for Too Faced Papaya Eyeshadow Palette

Too Faced Papaya Eyeshadow Palette is a new addition to the Too Faced Tutti Frutti Collection. If you recall Too Faced also launch new shades of Fruit Cocktail Blush Duos last year for Summer 2019 which makes it no surprise they went and did another eyeshadow palette. I have the Too Faced Sparkling Pineapple and Razzle Dazzle Berry Eyeshadow Palettes already but I’m curious to see Papaya in person.

Plus did I mention it’s all peachy and delicious? You know how I feel about peach and coral eyeshadows! I’m taking a wild guess it smells like papaya as the last two palettes were scented! It contains seven shades and this time around it appears they left out the creamy glitter shades included in the prior two releases. There’s a rather great duochrome shade or at least I assume its by the photos!

Right now the Too Faced Papaya Eyeshadow Palette is exclusively at QVC. I’m playing with the idea of picking it up!

What do you think of this one?

P.S. Happy Monday! Isn’t it weird to say that because I imagine some of us have forgotten what day it is! Haha…! Today I had to fix a fixture on my kitchen sink and my BF is in his headspace working so I facedtimed my dad for help and he walked me through it. I ended up getting pretty emotional after as I realize it’s been four weeks since I saw him. He had a pacemaker put in this past Fall. It’s not something I shared on here before but let me tell you I was terrified when it happened. Needless to say right now I don’t want to be anywhere near him right now just in case I’m asymptomatic. I felt really bad after hanging up from him because I feel like four weeks is way too long not to see him. It’s sort of sad right now the only contact we can have with certain loved ones is via the phone. But hey, thank god we have technology like Facetime right?

I hope you’re not missing any of your loved ones today and if you are I’m sending good vibes your way with a virtual hug. We’ll see them all again soon!
