Sephora is like some kind of weird vortex that just sucks you in. Last week, for example, I went in for one product and left with six – please tell me I am not the only one this happens to. So, to make myself feel better about my Sephora shopping spree, I thought I would turn it into a blog post and share with you what I purchased!
This is the product I went in for! It is a limited edition Sephora Favourites Set. It runs for $33 and comes with two full-size products and four deluxe-size sample products. It is such an amazing value!! Both of the full-size products run for more than $20 each making the kit so worth the price. Plus, I rarely work my way through an entire full-size lipstick, so I find the deluxe-size samples great. And they are a nice size to have with you on the go.
The kit contains:
Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick in Honeycomb (deluxe-size sample)
Buxom Full-On Lip Cream in White Russian (deluxe-size sample)
Estée Edit The Barest Contour Lip Liner in 05 In The Buff (full-size)
Marc Jacobs Beauty Le Marc Lip Crème in 246 Slow Burn (deluxe-size sample)
Too Faced Cosmetics Melted Matte Liquified Matte Long Wear Lipstick in Queen B (deluxe-size sample)
Urban Decay Vice Lipstick in 1993 Comfort Matte (full-size)
I have been feeling a little under the weather thanks to the head cold I am currently battling. While on the hunt for the Nude Lip Set I walked past the colourful display of Sephora Brand Face Masks and was instantly drawn in. When I am sick I always feel like my skin really shows it. Whenever my skin is in need of a boost I opt for a mask – it is the perfect pick me up.
I picked up the Sephora Collection Rose Face Mask. I received this product as a gift from a coworker over Christmas and it is beautiful! It is a moisturizing and brightening face mask enriched with natural rose extract. The rose extract plumps the skin, provides intense hydrating and provides and immediate radiance boost. After using this product my skin does feel really radiant and hydrated! Plus, I really like the actual sheet that the mask is made out of. Sometimes, I find sheet masks can be really big and therefore they don’t fit my face very well. I find the Sephora Collection to be a much nicer size and making them more comfortable during use.
While looking at the different masks I also decided to pick up the Sephora Collection Pearl Face Mask, Rose Eye Mask and Pearl Eye Mask. The Pearl Mask is designed to help brighten and even out the skin tone through relaxing the skin. I like the idea of anything brightening, so I decided to pick this one up.
I also decided to give the eye masks a try. I have never tried an eye mask before, but I love the concept. They are small patches that hug the eye contour area. They are formulated to treat the under eye area – the thinnest and most delicate skin on your body. Sometimes, I find my eye area needs a little boost, so I am betting these little guys will be the perfect remedy.
At the checkout I decided to redeem my Sephora Points for a deluxe-sample of the Origins Original Skin Retexturizing Mask with Rose Clay. I am excited to try this mask because I LOVE Origins masks. This mask is designed to smooth, refine pores and boost the skin;s overall quality. I am always on the hunt for products to hide my pores – and who can say no to a pink face mask?
That is all for today’s Sephora trip! Have you picked up anything new lately? I’d love to hear about it in a comment!
