So remember a few weeks ago when I purchased a bunchhhh of stuff from Sephora? Turns out that was not the brightest idea because I completely forgot that
November = 20% for VIB purchases
Yeah, I’m kicking myself for forgetting about that.
I didn’t want to go crazy in there but I decided to stock up on a few of my ‘usual’ products that I was starting to run low on. I purchased 2 of the Sephora Collection Retractable Eyebrow Pencils.
I started filling in my brows after I got my makeup done for my wedding and saw how doing so completely changed the look of my face. My eyebrows are thick but there are a few places that are kind of patchy, so I almost always fill in my brows now. I use the color nutmeg brown in this pencil.
For the record, I prefer Anastasia’s retractable eyebrow pencils over the Sephora Collection because the brush is 100x better and it goes on a little smoother. However, I don’t think these differences justify the $10 price difference, so I usually stick with Sephora’s.
The 2nd item I stocked up on was my NARS Laguna Bronzer. This is a holy grail product for me. I used to use Physicians Formula bronzer back in the day and was honestly blown away at how much more I loved NARS’ bronzer. And yes, I do believe one can be blown away by a good bronzer The pigmentation is awesome and it lasts forever.
It took every bit of me to refrain from purchasing a bunch of other things I’ve had my eye on, but I did treat myself to the Sephora Favorites Lash Stash Kit. If I had to pick 1 makeup item that I love to ‘experiment’ with, it would be mascara, and I was really close to purchasing this last year.
I have a few favorite mascaras but I’ve never actually used 1 kind twice in a row because I love trying new mascaras so much.
I can hardly say this about things I purchase from Sephora but I felt like this lash kit was actually a good deal. I paid $36 after my coupon for this box. It comes with a full-sized Smashbox Full Exposure mascara, which costs $20 by itself (+9 other smaller mascaras and eye makeup remover).
I can’t wait to use everything!!
On an unrelated note, I saw Nightcrawler yesterday and it freaked me out. I didn’t think I could see a movie that was more disturbing than Gone Girl, but I think Nightcrawler takes the cake. I will say that Jake Gyllenhaal is such a good actor in this movie, though!
Did you buy anything this week at Sephora? I laugh because around this time, I always see the UPS man delivering a bunch of Sephora boxes in our apartment complexes.
Are you a makeup junkie like I am? If not, what do you splurge on?
Have you seen Nightcrawler? Did you think it was as disturbing as I did?
