I was browsing on Sephora’s website the other day and since so many things caught my eye I thought I’d share a few of them with you.
I’ve never tried any of the Sephora brand lip products, but this nude shade is just SO pretty I couldn’t resist falling in love with it.
I bought the Two Faced Peach Sweet Peach Palette the other day (swatches coming soon!) and I wanted to get this too, but it was sold out by the time I got online. The blush and bronzer shades in this palette look absolutely beautiful.
Sometimes when I look at sampler kits not everything really grabs my attention, but not with this one! All 7 items in this kit I would really like to try…especially the Bobbi Brown Retouching Face Pencil in Illuminate!
This shade of pale pink is a color I’ve been looking for. I haven’t tried anything from Bite Beauty before, but the reviews seem pretty good so I’ll have to see what else they have to offer and they have a ton of shades too.
I have (and really like) a few makeup products from It Cosmetics, but I haven’t tried any of their skin care items yet. This eye cream helps with puffiness, brightening and fine lines…um YES please!!
Ok, so there are a few items that caught my attention at Sephora. What have you bought or wished for recently at Sephora?
There is so much talk about primers these days. Face primer, eye primer and eye lash primer. Do you use any (or all) of these?
First let’s talk about face primer. I have oily skin that is prone to breakouts. It’s hard to find a primer without silicones that works for my skin. What I’m looking for in a primer is oil control. I feel like I’ve tried them all and none of them work for me:(
Next is eye primer. Too Faced Shadow Insurance is what I’ve been using and it does work really well at keeping my shadow from creasing. I have fair skin and I have freckles on my eye lids so I would really like to find an eye primer that has a hint of color to cover the freckles on my eye lids. For some reason a lot of the tinted eye shadow primers have shimmer/sparkle to them which is not what I’m looking for. If you have any suggestions I’ll love to hear about it. Until then I’ll stick with my Too Faced!
Lastly is eye lash primer. Of all the primers I’ve written about above this is the one I see the best results from. What I read on the package actually really happens when I apply it. My absolute favorite is Diorshow Maximizer Lash Plumping Serum by Dior. I apply this to my lashes every day prior to mascara (after I curl my lashes of coarse) and it’s amazing how much it makes my lashes appear longer and thicker. When I started doing research about this what caught my attention was that the website writes “it creates a smooth, even mascara base and promotes long-term lash growth, strength, and vitality”. Yes please! I have used Dior mascara with this in the past, but not always and I still get really good results. In my opinion this is definitely worth using!
What kind of luck have you had with primers? If you have one you absolutely love please let me know about it.
Have a great day!
