As most of you probably are aware, we are in the middle of one of the most important weeks of the year-- the Sephora Friends and Family sale, where EVERYTHING is 20% off. And I may have gone slightly overboard this year. But, in my defense, I cut out more than half of the stuff I wanted to get.
So, here's what I narrowed it down to:
bareMinerals Mineral Veil-- I love this stuff and had run out. I was waiting on the FF sale to re-purchase.
Benefit Watt's Up-- I am so excited about this. I've read about it on several beauty blogs. I think I'm going to like it better than High Beam, which is my current highlighter, because this is not a liquid. It's more like the NARS multiple except it comes with a built-in blender sponge.
NARS Orgasm-- It is a travesty that I do not already own this. So, I'm rectifying that right now. I LOVE my Benefit Bella Bamba blush, but it's a little too bright and pink for winter IMO.
NARS Velvet Gloss Lip Pencil-- This has been on my to-purchase list for months, so I'm taking advantage of the 20% off to get one.
Ouidad shampoo and conditioner-- If you don't have curly hair, you probably haven't heard of Ouidad. They make products specifically for us curly-headed gals. It's not anywhere as expensive as, say, Bumble and Bumble, but more than I normally spend on hair products. But, again, with 20% off, now is the time to try it!
Urban Decay eyeshadow in Sin-- My favorite and most-used shade from my NAKED palette. The one in the palette was starting to run low, so I bought a single. Thank goodness this was one color that is not exclusive to the palette, or I'd be very sad.
UD Primer Potion Professional Size-- Is an explanation really necessary for this one?? The professional size is already an amazing deal, but take off another 20%, and it's a steal.
Smashbox Photo Finish Hydrating Primer-- My skin gets SO DRY in the winter, and most primers just make it worse (I'm looking at you, MUFE & MAC). I was so glad to see that Smashbox came out with a hydrating primer this year. Hopefully it will be fantastic.
As always, one of the best things about Sephora is their return policy. If you don't like a product after trying it, you can return it for a full refund-- even if you purchased online. I love risk-free purchases! :)
Any of you ladies take advantage of the sale?? Do share!
