Sephora VIB Sale!

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

It’s that time again! The Sephora VIB Sale is in full swing. If you’re a beauty junkie like me, the VIB sale is super exciting. I was lucky enough to shop a little earlier through the Sephora Friends and Family Sale (thank you Jackie!). Here are some items I picked up, and my first impressions.

1. Josie Maran Argan Cleansing Oil – I’ve used Josie Maran’s argan oil before and LOVE that stuff. I was in need of a new cleanser so I decided to try this one out. I’ve used it a couple times and it does an AMAZING job of breaking down makeup.

2. Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Beauty on the Go Set – I got this because I wanted to try out the Bum Bum Cream. OMG. It smells like heaven. I’m in love. Also the lip butter is great for daily use.

3. Urban Decay All Nighter Spray – Shout out to my friend Amy for recommending this to me. This really does a good job in helping your makeup last. I hate the scent of it, but it does work.

4. Bite Beauty Multistick in Blondie – I got this because a YouTuber I watch said it was amazing. Unfortunately the color is too light and washes out my face. I’m definitely going to return this.

5. Anastasia Brow Primer – Another recommendation from Amy! This stuff is great. It’s a wax that you can put on before or after filling in your eyebrows. This will definitely be a holy grail item for me.

6. It Cosmetics Bye Bye Undereye Concealer – This stuff is GOLD. For real, it’s one of the best under eye concealers I’ve ever used. The shade is perfect for my skin tone, also a little really goes a long way.

7. Hourglass Vanish Foundation – I’ve never tried a stick foundation before but I really love this one. It really does vanish into the skin. I’m thinking about doing a review post on this, if you’re interested let me know in the comments!

8. Tarte Lip Facial Lip Scrub – I’ve been meaning to get a new lip scrub, and I love that this comes in a stick vs. a pot. So far, I’m loving it.

These are all the goodies I recently got from Sephora. If you get any from the sale, or want me to review any of these let me know in the comments below!

Beauty Wish List: January 2015

beauty wants

 

It’s a new year, which means it’s time for some new beauty purchases. This is what I’m currently coveting on Sephora.com. If I could I would probably just live in the store, but since that’s a little unrealistic, I like to make my house feel as if I’m in it. A lot of these products have been on my wish list for a while now. It’s about time I take the plunge.

one// Josie Maran 100% Pure Argan Oil – Last time I went into Sephora, the lovely sales assistant put some of this on my face before applying foundation. That was one of the only times that my foundation lasted for hours on end. I haven’t even given it another try, but I already swear by it!

two// Bobbi Brown Hydrating Eye Cream – I’m kind of addicted to eye creams. If I don’t put it on every morning and night I feel like I’ll instantly get winkles. I’ve heard a lot of really good things about this eye cream, and we could all use a little extra hydration in that area.

three// Bumble and Bumble Thickening Dryspun Finish – I recently just cut a foot off my hair, and with that came off a lot of the extra weight and volume. Now I’m all about texturizing sprays to give my hair an extra lift.

four//NEST Wasabi Pear Body Cream – I’ve been obsessed with NEST fragrances for a while now, especially the wasabi pear scent. It’s the perfect mixture of sweetness with a slight crisp.

five// Supergoop! Forever Young Hand Cream – Your hands are the first place to show signs of aging. This hand cream has SPF 40, so it’s perfect to keep those hands looking young.

six// Tarte Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Airbrush Foundation – According to all the beauty gurus on YouTube, this foundation is a must have. I haven’t worn powdered foundation in a long time so I really want to give this a try.

seven// Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed – I’ve tried the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in liquid form, and it was one of the most beautiful highlights I have ever used. However, I ended up dropping the bottle and got the liquid highlighter all over my bathroom floor. For my clumsy self, I think the pressed powder might be the go-to version.

eight// Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Dragon Girl – I’m always looking for that perfect red lipstick, and I’ve heard from multiple people that Nars’ Dragon Girl is that lip color. Need. It. Now.
