Sephora Overload.


As most of you probably are aware, we are in the middle of one of the most important weeks of the year-- the Sephora Friends and Family sale, where EVERYTHING is 20% off.  And I may have gone slightly overboard this year.  But, in my defense, I cut out more than half of the stuff I wanted to get.

So, here's what I narrowed it down to:

bareMinerals Mineral Veil-- I love this stuff and had run out.  I was waiting on the FF sale to re-purchase.


Benefit Watt's Up-- I am so excited about this.  I've read about it on several beauty blogs.  I think I'm going to like it better than High Beam, which is my current highlighter, because this is not a liquid.  It's more like the NARS multiple except it comes with a built-in blender sponge.


NARS Orgasm-- It is a travesty that I do not already own this.  So, I'm rectifying that right now.  I LOVE my Benefit Bella Bamba blush, but it's a little too bright and pink for winter IMO.  

NARS Velvet Gloss Lip Pencil-- This has been on my to-purchase list for months, so I'm taking advantage of the 20% off to get one.  


Ouidad shampoo and conditioner--  If you don't have curly hair, you probably haven't heard of Ouidad.  They make products specifically for us curly-headed gals.  It's not anywhere as expensive as, say, Bumble and Bumble, but more than I normally spend on hair products.  But, again, with 20% off, now is the time to try it!


Urban Decay eyeshadow in Sin-- My favorite and most-used shade from my NAKED palette.  The one in the palette was starting to run low, so I bought a single.  Thank goodness this was one color that is not exclusive to the palette, or I'd be very sad.


UD Primer Potion Professional Size-- Is an explanation really necessary for this one??  The professional size is already an amazing deal, but take off another 20%, and it's a steal. 


Smashbox Photo Finish Hydrating Primer-- My skin gets SO DRY in the winter, and most primers just make it worse (I'm looking at you, MUFE & MAC).  I was so glad to see that Smashbox came out with a hydrating primer this year.  Hopefully it will be fantastic.



As always, one of the best things about Sephora is their return policy.  If you don't like a product after trying it, you can return it for a full refund-- even if you purchased online.  I love risk-free purchases!  :)

Any of you ladies take advantage of the sale??  Do share!

  2. Ooh, I'm interested to hear what you think about Watt's Up. I read about it too! Keep me posted! And of course you need to own Orgasm. It's just the best.

  5. What a great sale! I LOVE the first four things you listed and use them all the time. Nars Orgasm is the best blush ever! I have been looking for an eyeshadow like Sin for awhile, so I think I'll have to give that a try.

  6. I had NO idea! If I had the money I would find out exactly what kind of makeup you always wear and buy it all- your makeup is always so stunning!
