Happy Thursday Everyone!
Amidst the chaos of this school week, I threw together a quick blog post all about Sephora’s Annual Sale (because who doesn’t love great quality products at a once a year discount?)!
Included is a wish list of 10 items I would have in my cart (if in a perfect world I was a millionaire), and a quick little reason why I think it’s awesome (: Some of which might be because it is a life staple in my routine and others might just be because it’s winter and to me, that means ’tis the season of glitter and sparkle and NO ONE can say a dang thing about it!
So let’s jump right on in and get to it!
1. Fenty Beauty
Okay, so I know that technically I totally have three things here, but like I’m trying to in my mind, condense them as one because it’s all just so dang good.
I really don’t wear makeup on the daily, so I haven’t had the excuse to go out and pick all of these goodies up yet, but of course I’ve seen all the YouTube reviews and I’m DYING to try these three products from the line.
First is the Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation. It is full coverage, comes in a range of colors (totally awesome), and from what I hear has some type of technology that helps it dry down as though it was already set with a powder. And all of that sounds amazing to me!
Next up is the Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter in Trophy Wife! This is literally gold glitter. Do I even need to say anything else?
No, it might not be the best for pale gal’s like me, but I quite frankly don’t care because I think it’s just THAT good!
And finally, I’m dying to get my hands on the Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer!
This is a lip gloss that is apparently supposed to suit any skin tone, and I believe it does this by somehow looking different on pretty much everyone.
I’m not much of a lip gloss girl but I’ve seen this on so many beauty gurus and alllll over Instagram and I haven’t seen it look bad yet. Plus it just seems like the perfect way to add some subtle glam to every look! (:
2. Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer in Chantilly
This is a cult favorite. I tried it years ago and it’s been my favorite concealer ever since. It is super thick and great at brightening areas on the face. I find it doesn’t really crease and just wears so well all day long! So I’ll be stocking up on this before my current stash is gone! (:
3. Peter Thomas Roth Mask-A-Holic 6-Piece Set
I’m so excited about this one! You all know I love skincare and this is the perfect gift for anyone who feels the same! It includes tinier sizes or a variety of masks and honestly, although I’ve never actually owned this product, I can tell it would last forever! So you’re really getting such a great value AND amazing products!
It includes: Cucumber Gel Mask, 24K Gold Mask Pure Luxury Lift & Firm Mask, Blue Marine Algae Intense Hydrating Mask, Pumpkin Enzyme Mask, and Irish Moor Mud Purifying Black Mask
4. Bobbi Brown Bronzer in Golden Light
Okay, I know all you Sephora lovers seem to be Hoola obsessed, but this is another cult favorite for me. It’s the best bronzer, truly. It isn’t too orange, and it’s so versatile. I use it (obviously) to warm up my complexion, but also as an eyeshadow on days where I just want a little some extra, and it seriously looks soooo good.
I’ve had one of these for seriously years, and although I use it plenty, I’ve just FINALLY hit pan so I’m definitely in need of this asap (: WOULD definitely recommend!
5. Kat Von D Alchemist Holographic Palette
Holographic is my favorite color so snagging this palette is a total dream. It can be used to transform the eyes, face, and lips and totally giving me all of the space vibes! Plus I really think this palette would work so well for all of my darker skinned girls out there because seeing it swatched is out of this world type of good (: And why not be a little extra and have some fun for the holidays, right?
6. Belif Creamy Cleansing Foam Moist
Yes, another staple. I’ve been using this for the past few years and it’s never made my skin happier. I have lots of skin problems (mostly because I’m not always the most consistent when it comes to washing my face at college, gross, I know.) and this really helps. It’s gentle and made with good ingredients and won’t break the bank when it comes to buying it.
It also always lasts me quite a while, which is just another bonus jonas (:
7. Sephora Winter Wonderland Advent Calendar
This is just a splurge item. I love advent calendars and this is super fun because instead of chocolate you get a little itty bitty beauty item. So really, how can you go wrong? Plus, at a discount, why the heck not get something that’ll add a little more sparkle to your Christmas countdown.
8. Briogeo Rosarco Milk Reparative Leave-In Conditioning Spray
This is another good one, I have damaged hair and this first of all, smells wonderful, but second of all (and most importantly) actually makes a difference. It leaves my hair softer and with 10x less tangles. This is just one of the many products I’ve received in a Sephora Play box and have moved on to purchase full size. It’s a goodie, trust me! (:
9. BeautyBlender Blenders For All Seasons
Okay, who doesn’t love a BeautyBlender? And it’s like double the discount. This is already in a bundle so you’re getting them for less as is, PLUS the 20% off. Ugh, it’s like a dream come true. I know I can never have enough of these guys around, and this will 100% be on the list! Oh, and the colors are to die for too. I know the pink is classic but purple is my favorite color (minus holographic) so to add these to the collection would be great too!
These would also be the best gift for literally anyone! So it might be a good idea to try and get some of that Christmas shopping out of the way early on! (:
10. Sephora Puff & Shine Shimmery Body Powder
Last, but of course not least, is loose glitter that you can douse all over your body. It seems festive and perfect for the holiday season and for $13, I’m down. This could honestly be a total fail but, at the end of the day, I could see this being the first thing added to my cart!
And so that concludes all of my wishlist items for this years sale! It’s something you definitely have to seize the day on as it really is so so so rare for anything to ever be on sale in Sephora. Of course, that’s not great for my wallet but who’s really keeping track, right?
What’s on your wishlist? Have you shopped the sale yet? What do you think of all of my items and do you have any recommendations?
I hope you are all having a great week and enjoyed this short little post!
Until next time,
