Well folks, it's about that time for the Sephora Friends and Family Sale. Which usually rolls around about this time of year. I use this sale mainly for Christmas gifts and stocking stuffers from the travel section because....why not? I also use it to stock up on things I know that I'll re-buy like favorite foundations, any skincare favorites like cleansers or staples. I usually wait until this sale or anytime I have gift cards to buy things that I don't purchase very much at all like perfume.
So per usual I'm going to give you my buying guide. I've done this for several years where I recommend not necessarily "new" products, but products I've tested and liked through out the year and feel comfortable recommending. Of course, if there is anything you've had your eye on, now would be the time to buy it.
I hope you're enjoying your labor day weekend. I was just at Walgreens and I seen that there was a $2 coupon off the Wet n Wild Photo Focus Foundation which is a really good foundation making it like $3-$4! So anyways, I got to thinking what my favorite affordable makeup products are of all time. Thus, I bring you a blog post.
As you may have heard, NYX released a new foundation it has a shade range of 45 shades in a matte finish. Which is fantastic. I'm glad that there's more options becoming available with extensive shade ranges. This was sent to me by Influenster and they also sent the CSWS Primer that is also matte.
Greetings everyone! I am running on very little sleep. So bear with. I hope that you've had the chance or you're going to partake in the Sephora Appreciation Sale. VIB and Insiders get to shop on the 30th. VIB Rouge started on the 26th and it all ends on Sept 3rd. So anyway, I hadn't bought anything from Sephora in a while. I've been doing the majority of my shopping on ULTA but I hadn't even bought from ULTA in quite a few months. I decided to treat myself and buy things that I had been eyeing for a while and just never purchased. I also kept it in the makeup realm just because I don't need any skincare at the moment.
Part 2 of my Sephora Sale recommendations is going to be makeup because that is the order in which I prioritize my spending. Skin always comes before makeup. None the less makeup is probably more exciting to buy if I'm being honest. I love skincare like you wouldn't believe and I do get very excited about it but you're not really gonna see the skincare on my face. So the sale starts today for VIB Rouge and the 30th for VIB and Insiders. I have the codes listed on my previous post.
THIS IS NOT A DRILL. I REPEAT, THIS IS NOT A DRILL. Anastasia has released the Norvina palette and we're here to talk about it! Let's not wait any longer and get into this.
This isn't my typical post. Usually when I'm not testing a product I won't talk negatively about it either because I have no reason to do that. However, lately there has been some real eye roll moments of new releases. So therefore, I'm going to give a few that I just don't understand, that are childish, and that I won't be buying at all.
Let's do a round up of products that I'm loving lately. I'll do makeup in this one and skincare in the next one that way it's not super long and I can talk about the products a little bit more.
I'll be the first to tell you I'm not the biggest Too Faced fan. I haven't liked a product of theirs since the original Chocolate Bronzer came out which was YEARS ago. I'll be honest if I see one more mythical themed collection come out I'm going to scream. It seems like Too Faced does that left and right. However, the "Natural" line isn't childlike toy makeup thank God. It's actually super pretty and heavy with a lace detail inside. Some might think it's too "old" for the line, I think it's a fantastic turn in a good direction so far.
I got sent an Influenster box to test out the Grande Lash products from Grande Cosmetics, which is a Mascara, Primer, and MD Lash Serum. I've tried many serums so I wasn't super hopefully but I did like that the mascara and primer both contributed to your lashes growing faster or at the very least looking better. I've been using it for a month. So let's talk about it.
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.
