today @ sephora: confessions of my shopping spree.

I went to the Apple store today because my iPad wasn’t loading iOS 8 and they confirmed my fear and said it was dead, basically. I don’t even know. A dark cloud of technology angst settled over University Village. I told them to just recycle it and immediately walked my sad little girl self straight into Sephora for some beauty therapy.

My name is Nicole and I am a proud #NARSissist. 💄💄💄

Suddenly, my wrist was swatched out and I had four new NARS velvet matte lip pencils plus a new Audacious in hand.

NARS Audacious - Janet - StoneColdBetch

NARS Audacious Lipstick: Janet (deep magenta)
NARS Velvet Matte: Damned (magenta)
NARS Velvet Matte: Never Say Never (lilac rose)
NARS Velvet Matte: Bettina (natural rose beige sheen)
NARS Velvet Matte: Mysterious Red (crimson red)


Realizing I spent a million dollars on glorified crayons, I decided to go all in and cash some of my Beauty Insider points on this Urban Decay 500 point eye palette. I’m debating if I want to pick up the original Naked palette so I decided to splurge… Who has the original palette and how do you like it? I only have Naked 2.

Inside is a sample of the UD primer potion, the Glide-On Eye Pencil in Zero, and four shadows – Skimp, Bust, Guilt and Oil Slick. Also!!! Completely unrelated: I just got my hands on a fab new book, out next week. It’s called Chic-tionary and I’m already obsessed.

Sneak peek. I’m going to read it over the weekend so expect a post with thoughts and all my favorite parts next week. Currently reading OVERDRESSED by Elizabeth Cline which is about fast fashion. If you’ve asked me a question from my initial post or are curious about the reality behind this horrific sector of the industry – take a read.


Back to my extremely challenging day – after putting my iPad to rest, I had to go to Verizon to figure out my data plan because I had been going over (what, like it’s hard?) and my mom was about to literally knife me like we only wish we could in emoji. I handled it… then ordered the gold iPhone 6.

It will look supercute with the new mini iPad 3 that I now need, obviously gold to match.

And now I’m exhausted from having to be a real person all day. It’s hard out here for a white girl. All I want is to sit with a bottle of wine on my throne in my living room and contemplate life/how easy it is for me to spend money when I’m emotionally crippled from the death of a device. Retail therapy is effective, but expensive.

Cheers betches, we’ve almost made it through the week!

  1. Hey betch.
    I like NAKED2 better than NAKED1. I think it has to do with the range/variety of colour in 2. NAKED1 seems a little one note to me but I might be crazy. Just my opinion.
