Hi beauties! It’s the most wonderful time of the year! And by that, I mean the Sephora VIB 20% off sale! Sephora only has one sale a year so this is an exciting event for beauty lovers like me. It’s the perfect time to try out new products from your wishlist as well as stock up on old favorites. Plus, all the yummy holiday kits and palettes are out so you can snag any of those at a sweet discount. Here are the cruelty-free treats that I picked up when I went today:
What better time to stock up on brushes for my beloved Clarisonic! The 2 pack already is discounted by $10, so the extra 20% off made them a total steal. I love these delicate brush heads because they are gentle on my dry areas but still give my skin a super deep clean.
This setting spray is LIFE so I had to stock up! I spray this stuff overtop of my finished makeup and it helps keep my face looking fresh and matte all day. Sometimes I even spray it on my damp beauty sponge before blending my foundation for even more setting power.
You guys are probably already familiar with my love of liquid lipsticks. Kat Von D’s Everlasting Liquid Lipstick formula is one of my three favorites (aside from Jeffree Star Lip Velour and Kylie Cosmetics Lip Kit) and this neon lilac was calling my name! I really like how lightweight the formula is, plus it’s very opaque despite the lightness of the color. I don’t have anything quite like this color and I’m super excited to add it to my collection. Take a peek at this post’s featured image to see how it looks on me.
I feel like I’m the last beauty junkie on earth to try this mascara. I haven’t strayed from my holy grail Fairy Drops in a few years, but since my bottle was low, I decided today was a great opportunity to try something new. I only ever wear waterproof mascara, but I was so impressed with how this stuff held up during my workout today. After running 3 miles tonight, my lashes are still as fluffy and voluminous as they were when I applied it. I’ve only worn it for one day so I can’t provide a thorough and definite opinion, but I’m pleased so far. But I can tell you that it has the prettiest packaging of any mascara I’ve ever had! The pink metal tube is has a really nice bit of weight to it and looks and feels very luxurious.
There are few makeup items that I am as picky about as eyeliner. I have oily and hooded lids, plus watery eyes. I also often wear makeup when I do sweaty workouts. So when an eyeliner claims to be waterproof, I truly put it to the test. I also need it to be highly pigmented and apply very smoothly since I always do a very precise wing. That said, I ask quite a lot from my eyeliner. I take pride in having tried a substantial amount of the waterproof liquid/gel/cream eyeliners on the market, but the Taste Clay Pot is one I have not tried. I haven’t tested it yet, but I have high hopes.
Are you going to get anything at the sale this year? What’s on your beauty wishlist this holiday season?
