In honor of the huge Dermstore 20% off sale, I thought I would share with you how my love affair with this online store began. I first discovered Dermstore when I was searching online for somewhere to buy the brand Skindinavia. After finding the setting spray that I wanted to purchase, I then spent HOURS perusing the other products on the Dermstore site. I was excited to see that Dermstore carried some of my favorite skincare brands that are very hard to find (Epionce, a medical grade skincare line and Tula, a skincare line made of probiotics). However, what really surprised me about the Dermstore site was how much MAKEUP they carried.
Not only does Dermstore carry most of the major makeup brands (Anastasia of Beverly Hills, Lorac, Tarte, Kevyn Aucoin, etc), they also carry some of the beauty brands that are incredibly hard to find (The Balm, By Terry, Jouer, etc). These are just some of the makeup brands that they carry, check out their full makeup section here. With the current 20% off sale (20% off EVERYTHING sitewide!!), now would be a great time to shop at Dermstore. Here are a few things that I recently picked up from Dermstore:
*These products were sent to me free of charge by Dermstore as press samples. As always, my opinions are 100% my own.
Lorac Unzipped Palette
The shades in this palette are so beautiful and go together so well. There are a few palettes in my collection that never get used because I open the palette, stare at the colors, and have no idea what to do. This palette is the complete opposite – there are so many gorgeous color combinations and you can easily create so many complete eye looks with this palette. The formula is incredibly pigmented and very long-wearing.
By Terry Baume de Rose Crystalline Bottle
This lip balm is raved about in the beauty community. However, I had never seen anyone mention the fact that you can get this lip balm in a convenient tube with a doe-foot applicator. This Baume de Rose is absolutely worth the hype. It is so moisturizing, has a subtle rose scent, and leaves your lips looking shiny and plump. The shade of pink is slightly too light for me, so I keep this on my nightstand and apply it at night before bed. The one negative of this product is the price. So, I would definitely recommend picking it up from Dermstore so that you can get it at 20% off!
Jouer Long Wear Lip Creme in Cayenne
If you missed my review of the Jouer Long Wear Lip Cremes, be sure to check them out here. This shade, a shimmering rosy-red, is part of Jouer’s special anniversary collection. This shade is very pigmented, comfortable on the lips, and super long-wearing. It also smells like a delicious vanilla dessert!
Dermablend Loose Setting Powder
This loose setting powder sets your makeup and conceals any imperfections. According to the Dermstore site, it is actually recommended by dermatologist to cover face and body discolorations and imperfections. In fact, I noticed that a ton of the online reviews mentioned using this product to conceal imperfections (scars, sunspots, etc). I actually really enjoyed this setting powder for “baking” my concealer and setting my foundation. I would recommend using a light hand as this powder can leave a slight white cast if you aren’t careful.
NATURAL BEAUTY PRODUCTS:
Dermstore also has a wide variety of natural skincare, haircare and makeup products. As a beauty blogger, I have tried a few natural beauty brands but I was excited to receive a few more natural products to try.
Tarte Blush in Sensual
I was so excited to try this blush after hearing Kathleen Lights rave about this formula and this shade. It is a completely matte blush in the most gorgeous yet natural nude shade. If you are someone who dislikes blushes, you will like this shade. It looks so natural on the cheeks. If you are someone like me, who absolutely LOVES blush, you can build this shade up to be much more noticeable. The Tarte blush formula is amazing and this blush held up on my oily skin all day long.
W3ll People Expressionist Mascara
I have actually tried the brand W3ll People after my sister won a makeup party from them. It is a natural and organic makeup line that has an amazing line of products. This lengthening mascara is a Allure Best of Beauty Winner and an Elle Magazine Essential Beauty Product. I found this mascara to be very lengthening and did not clump on my lashes at all. I have been particularly loving this mascara as a bottom lash mascara.
Juice Beauty Stem Cellular CC Cream
This 12-in-1 beauty product acts as a moisturizer and a “foundation” in one. It is a CC cream, which stands for “color correcting”. This product is supposed to minimize redness while providing sun protection and anti-aging benefits.
Juice Beauty Resurfacing Micro-Exfoliant
This is a spa-grade microdermabrasian product that is supposed to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Juice Beauty is a certified organic skincare line so I was excited to be able to try a skincare and makeup product from them.
I have been a huge fan of Dermstore for a very long time and I would highly recommend shopping there. They offer free shipping and returns and they are ALWAYS having sales. Use the code “SALE20” to receive 20% off EVERYTHING until the 26th. I promise you won’t be disappointed!
