Weekend Sephora Haul

I was able to take a very quick trip up to DC yesterday and hit Tyson's Corner mall. Which is an absolute paradise compared to anything that we have around here. Just getting to Sephora is pretty exciting, since the closest one to me is in downtown Richmond.
At any rate, I did some shopping! Here are the things that you will certainly hear me talking about in the next week or so:
Sephora Brand Luminous Trio: These look like lovely shades to highlight with. I almost went for the bronze, but figured I might need to slowly work my way into the whole bronze thing. Is it already time to start the self bronzer routine?
Smashbox Photo Finish Primer: I love primers. I know most people can take them or leave them, but they are a key part of my makeup routine. I bought a small size green to see if it helps tone down the redness that I often get on my cheeks - and not in the right places, either.
NARS Duo Eyeshadow in Blade Runner: I don't know why this particular combo appealed to me. I don't often wear greens at all. Perhaps I was thinking I needed to branch out more. And NARS eyeshadows are always lovely to use.
Lumedia Facial Brightener by Bremenn Research Labs: I didn't actually buy this. It was my "free gift" for being a Beauty Insider. Or something. Anyway, here is what the site has to say about it:

This light emulsion is specifically formulated to reduce visible discoloration, spots, blotching, and uneven skin tone resulting from photoaging and environmental factors, while a unique full-spectrum luminizer helps restore the translucent clarity of a fresh, "baby-like" complexion.
Okay. I'll give it a whirl and see what it's all about, although I don't really have any discoloration that I know of. But I bet if I look close enough I can find some.
