I swear just a minute ago I was complaining about the hot weather and now all of a sudden its November and it’s time for another Sephora sale. We have a heavy snowfall warning here today and with windchill it feels about -17 Celsius so you can understand why I’m reminiscing about warmer temperatures. 🙁
Thank Dog (yes, dog) for the Sephora VIB Sale – definitely need some makeup to distract me from the accumulating snow outside my window and the fact that I have to go out and shovel it soon. I’ve put together a couple different categories of products – Definitely Buying, Still Deciding and Dreaming. The first two are self-explanatory I think, the last one is things I would buy if I won a small lottery or came across a Sephora gift card with a large sum on it – it’s fun to dream! Oh and I put some recommendations in near the end too.
I loved the look of this palette the minute I saw it and the reviews I’ve seen have all been really positive. I’ll probably end up looking like I have a bad case of pink eye with some of those burgundy shades but what the hell – it’s gorgeous!
This time around I was smart and picked up a sample of this foundation BEFORE buying the full-size of it – what a concept. I’m so glad I did – I wasn’t really sure what to expect given that it’s a matte foundation but this is fantastic. It’s matte but doesn’t make my face look flat and dull. It doesn’t cling to dry patches and it stays in place all day. Can’t wait to get my hands on the full-size!
Polished & Inspired raves about this luminizing prime so I think I’m going to try out the travel size of it.
I LOVE this mask – it’s so hydrating and perfect for this cold dry weather!
I totally forgot about this hair primer until I found a travel size of it stashed away in my bathroom; I started using it again and I remembered how much I love it – my hair tends to fall flat for no real reason on any given day and this helps keep my style intact longer. A little goes a long way so the travel size lasts me a long time.
I’m on the hunt for a new everyday moisturizer and I do enjoy the Truth Serum included in this set – it seems like a good value!
Because its pink, luminizing and it’s a peel-off mask.
Now that my skin is getting clearer, I’d really like to find a quick and easy, one and done complexion product and I’ve heard nothing but good things about this BB Cream.
I’ve never had much luck with stick foundations but everyone raves about this one.
I’ve gone through quite a few foundations this year and I’m anxious to add some more to my collection – I hear that this is supposed to be lightweight and natural-looking.
Based on the reviews I’ve read/heard, I think this could be a really good finishing powder for overtop of the Peach Perfect foundation.
Okay I’m already getting one eyeshadow palette – do I need another one? No. But doesn’t this look sooooo pretty?
Do I need another blush? No, but I’ve been eyeing this up since Summer and the Benefit’s mini boxed products last forever.
Everyone raves about this moisturizer; I love my OGX Miracle Coconut Oil lotion but I’d like to see how the two compare.
This palette looks beautiful but I don’t think I could ever bring myself to pay $168 for an eyeshadow palette. It better apply itself for that price.
I want this palette so bad but it’s ALWAYS sold out – grrrrr!
It took me a while to realize how good this eyeliner was – it really is super easy to apply. Plus it lasts forever – I swore it was drying up months ago but it’s still going strong and I bought this last December!
This is my new favourite lip gloss – you can read why here.
This CC Cream isn’t going to work for everyone – their shade selection is limited and it’s best for those with combo to dry skin in my opinion. I love that its full coverage and leaves me with a luminous, lit from within glow.
I picked up Bite’s Agave Lip Mask at the last sale and I love it – nothing I’ve used really compares to it. This set is great because you get the lip mask, scrub and a balm!
If you’re looking to treat yourself to a beautiful fragrance, I totally recommend this. It’s the perfect mix of fruit and floral and the bottle is both unique and stunning!
I think I recommended this last time but honestly, it’s so good that I had to mention it again. I’ve tried other shower oils and nothing compares to this – definitely a winter skin care staple.
I haven’t tried the face wash in this set but I have used and love all 3 of the masks in this set – they’re great for multi-masking!
Let me know what you’re picking up at the sale this year below – if you have a blog post or YouTube video please link it so I can read/watch it! 🙂
