Did you celebrate the Sephora VIB 20% off event?!
I certainly did…and totally binged on lip products without even realizing it.
In terms of skincare I picked up an Origins Night-A-Mins, which I’ve used for years. I hadn’t repurchased it in a while because I had a lot of other nighttime moisturizers to use up, but I’m so happy I’m returning back to Night-A-Mins just as a polar vortex is arriving. I’m looking forward to trying Philosophy’s Purity Made Simple Mineral Oil-Free Facial Cleansing Oil. I’m addicted to the Purity Made Simple One-Step Facial Cleanser, so I have high hopes for this cleansing oil- I’ve heard nothing but great things!
I saw the Josie Maran Winter Dreams Argan Skincare Collection and freaked out. I didn’t really need this, but I’ve been on such an oil kick lately I knew I had to try it out. This collection features 6 Josie Maran products: Argan Cleansing Oil, 100% Pure Argan Oil, Pure Argan Milk Intensive Hydrating Treatment, Argan Infinity Intensive Creamy Oil, Whipped Argan Oil Intensive Hand Cream in Vanilla Apricot, and Argan Daily Moisturizer SPF 47. I’ve never used any of these products, so I’m super excited to finally rip this open and start using them all!
Lastly, I picked up a First-Aid Beauty Anti-Redness Serum. Again, I’ve heard nothing but great things, and with the weather changing so quickly the way it has here in D.C. I’ve been experiencing a lot of redness. Bisabolol, ginger, aloe, and caffeine are the main ingredients, the bisabolol and ginger are anti-inflammatory, the caffeine is a vasoconstrictor, and of course, the aloe is the soothing element.
Makeup wise, with the exception of the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer, I went crazy and only bought lip products. I have no idea why. First, when I saw the Tarte Kiss & Belle Lipsurgence Lip Set online I had every intention on buying it during the sale. I love all the Lipsurgence colors and the colors in this set were right up my ally. I also saw the Buxom Winner Takes All Lip Set online and knew I was probably going to buy it. I love the Buxom Full-On lip glosses, they’re always super shiny and plumping.
My last item was put in my bag in the extra long checkout line, lining the line with all those products is super smart Sephora, you got me. I rarely wear lipstick like products, but the BITE Beauty Best Bite Remix Set looked so alluring. These are the perfect holiday colors and they are ridiculously pigmented and satiny-matte when you apply them. I’m trying to branch out lip wise and I think these are perfect. I can’t find this product on the Sephora website, it is limited edition for Holiday 2014 so stop by your Sephora store to see if there’s any left!!
