One of my absolute favorite times of the year!!! The Sephora VIB Sale!!!! It isn’t often that you can get a deal at Sephora, and so when they offer 20% off you buy all the things you need! I thought I would share with you today what I have in my cart, and some recommendations on my favorite things if you are looking to try something new. You all know I am honest with you, and I don’t spend my money on anything unless it is worth it!
What’s In My Cart
I am obsessed with Clinique’s Moisture Surge Intense Moisturizer. I have purchased it several times. Thing thing is, I need a little something something for my aging skin. And I would love to have some SPF, you feel me? I think I am going to try out the Even Better Moisturizer this time. It says it’s a brightening, exfoliating, and clarifying hydrator. Sign me up! I still recommend The Moisture Surge Intense all day every day and will probably keep it as my nighttime moisturizer.
I have heard great things about the FarsÁLi Unicorn Essence, so I think I might try the small one and see if I notice a difference. It says it is an innovative, water-based, dual purpose serum, which helps protect the skin from free radical damage, while preparing it for longer-lasting makeup application. It has a lot of antioxidants in it that help with anti-aging too. I haven’t found a primer that I love, so maybe this is the route to go? Have you used it?
What I Recommend
My two favorite foundations are the Estee Lauder Double Wear and the Too Faced Peach Perfect Comfort Matte. They are the only two that I can recommend without any hesitation. Double Wear has been a long time favorite of mine, and Peach Perfect is a new discovery…since it just came out. Both give medium to full coverage, and last allllllllll day long in the Alabama heat and humidity. Trust me, I put them to the test! The Peach Perfect is slightly less expensive, and you get a lot in the bottle!!! Most foundations are 1.0ML and this is 1.6ML!!! The only thing I will say about Peach Perfect is that there aren’t as many shades to chose from, and you might want to go lighter than you think you are.
It is rare for me to stick to one product and never try anything else. That is the case for me and Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion. If you aren’t using an eye shadow primer, I am not sure what you are doing with your life?? I like the original and anti-aging ones best. This stuff is worth every penny and lasts forever and ever.
I reach for one of three eye shadow palettes nearly every day. The Too Faced Sweet Peach has a great mix of fun and natural colors, matte and shimmery. And it smells AMAZING!!!
The Urban Decay Naked Basics Ultimate gives you so many looks, and they are all matte! There is a row of cool colors and a row of warm colors, and they all blend great.
And the third I use all the time is actually not found at Sephora, but you can steal it from QVC for half of what I paid right now. It is the IT Cosmetics Pretty In Summer Shadow Trio. Love it!
The Kat Von D liquid lipstick is seriously the best, most long lasting lip stuff out there. And I have tried SO MANY. The set looks like fun! If you only want to try one, Love Sick is my absolute favorite color. It is so pretty and the one I get complimented on most!!!!
The Murad Time Release Acne Cleanser is the best thing I have ever done for my skin. If you struggle with acne and aging skin all at once, this stuff is for you! Chris even uses it.
Kate Somerville Anti-Bac Attack is hands down the best spot treatment out there. One bottle of this stuff lasts me several months, I can’t say enough good things about it. Clears the inevitable stuff up, prevents other things from popping up and never dries my skin.
NARS Orgasm is a cult favorite for a reason. It looks amazing on everyone. Just do it.
Too Faced Milk Chocolate Soleil Bronzer smells amazing and is so pretty! It’s been my go-to ever since it came out.
I am obsessed with my Elizabeth and James Bourbon roller ball. Smells so good!
What is in your cart? Is there anything I need to add to mine?
