It's time again for Sephora's VIB Spring sale. Which is 15% off or 10% depending on what your "status" is, Beauty Insider, VIB, VIB Rouge. So without rambling, I'm going to get into it.
Here's my suggestions:
Sephora has been doing weekly sales but they always have a pretty decent selection of sale products in general. Ulta does plenty of sales but for this post specifically it's products I've seen in their sale sections. I also stuck with makeup for this one. I like for skincare to be something I can personally recommend.
Recently I've gotten quite a few makeup products and seeing as I talk a lot about skincare on here it seems, I thought it'd be nice to discuss them briefly and let you know how it's going.
Makeup doesn't have to be fancy. I'm so happy to see the days gone where drugstore makeup really looked atrocious. So glad to not have to go and choose just one thing from the Clinique counter (because it was the least pricey at the time) help your makeup when it really didn't, but we all have that mint green compact didn't we girls? So dang glad to see more affordable brands coming into Sephora and indie brands making a huge impact thanks to online availability. So I compiled a list of my least expensive but favorite products for as many category's as I could. I think I pretty much have them all.
So apparently 2017 is nearly over. When did that happen? Anywho, Christmas is literally a month away. The shopping season is here and I'll be honest, there are so many deals going on that it is hard to keep up. So I'm not going to bother with trying to tell you all the Black Friday sales because I like to have a plan and I am not the type to go out and be amongst the crowds on that day. I will say, check out the Sephora Sale section online and on the app, Ulta is having killer sales as well as Belk. Basically any place that sells makeup is having very impressive deals. More so than ever before I think.
What I'm going to do is give you some gift ideas for makeup and skincare in different price ranges. At the end for kicks I'll give you some items that aren't in those categories in case you want to switch it up.
Alright everyone, it's that time of year. Sephora Friends and Family event starts TOMORROW on the 3rd. I have a previous post where I really go in depth, which I will link here, of what I think would be great buys or what I personally would get. This is going to be a quick top 10 post though of things I would get, taking into consideration what is new and what is going to be the best deal. Of course skincare comes first for me andddddddd.....there's something special for you guys as well.
Ok guys, I finally got the Jaclyn Hill palette.....yes I know, bit late to the game there Erin. I got it because, if you don't know, some of Morphe products are sold in store and online at Ulta Beauty. So the reason that I don't have Morphe palettes in my collection aside from the Kathleen Lights and Morphe collab is because the shipping was ridiculous. Like forget the 10% code Morphe, give me a free shipping code and I'm cool with it. Not to mention a regular palette costs around $23 I think, Jaclyn Hill's palette costs $38. So add in roughly about $12 in shipping, which I find weird because you can buy a whole crap load of brushes and ship it USPS for $4 but buy a palette and it's like $12 and FedEx. Not sure if you think FedEx is safer because they nearly broke the glass on my door from throwing a package so hard against it.....but I digress.
The time is upon us. Sephora's Friends and Family event is only days away if you happen to be buds with an associate, otherwise it's in mid November. I waited till last minute just so I could get an idea of what sets are going to be the best and what looks interesting. This will also be in parts: skincare and makeup, and then the things I'm interested in. Let's get started.
Today we're going to do a brand round up! It's going to be on Sunday Riley. Now I don't have every single products but I have a lot and I have enough to give you some thoughts on what I would get from them and in general if they're products make a difference/warrant the price tag. It's going to be very honest, and in some parts it might sounds harsh. I don't mean it to come off as that but I'm not gonna waste time sugarcoating the way of telling you if a product didn't do it for me.
For a while, I've been slowly trying the May Lindstrom line of products. I say slowly because they are quite expensive but everything from ingredients to packaging is beautiful about them. I truly, truly feel like May Lindstrom is an artist, and maybe a magician in some cases with the way she blends together unbelievable concoctions to not just help the skin and nourish the skin but also to appeal to the senses as well. You can't help but feel relaxed.
I'm a makeup and skincare lover. I have always enjoyed creating looks but I love to help people with product knowledge and application even more. I've been able to do these things because God has seen fit to bless me with the opportunity.
