The Sephora 2016 VIB Sale is happening *right now*. All VIB members get 20% off *everything* (use the code 20VIB from 11/11/16 – 11/14/16). I picked up a few items from the sale and thought I would share them with you. I tried to buy a mix of “sensible” products that I actually needed and fun splurge products that I did not need but really wanted!
Guerlain Lingerie De Peau Natural Perfection Foundation – This foundation is pricey! It actually was not even on my wish list but I randomly heard at least 3 of my friends on Snapchat rave about it. There is some debate as to whether the formula is the same as the original but all I can say is that I love this foundation. It is more watery than my other foundations, so it is a little messy to apply (I pump it out directly onto my brush). However, it blends out like a dream. It provides great coverage but feels and looks lightweight. It is a very natural finish but held up really nicely on my oily skin.
Viseart Eyeshadow Palette in 01 Neutral Matte – My favorite eyeshadows are neutrals and mattes. So, I am surprised that it took me so long to add this eyeshadow palette to my collection. It is an expensive palette, but the price per eyeshadow is very reasonable ($6.67/eyeshadow). The packaging definitely leaves something to be desired (especially considering the fact that it retails for $80). However, the colors in this palette are perfect for me and I know that I will get a ton of use out of it.
Beauty Blender BlenderCleanser Solid – I have tried to find a less expensive soap to clean my makeup brushes but I have yet to find anything that i like as much as this product. I am completely out of my last one so this was a reasonable purchase. If you are looking for a cheaper alternative, I do like Sephora’s version of this product.
Shiseido Facial Cottons – Honestly, I bought this product out of curiosity. I saw my friend Katie (MrsLanglam) rave about these facial cottons on Snapchat and I was intrigued. How can a cotton pad be so special? I have to admit – these are INCREDIBLY soft and luxurious. After trying these, I do not think I will be able to go back to using “normal” cotton rounds from the drugstore.
Honestly, I am very proud of myself for only picking up these 4 products! Of course there are a few items that I am really wishing I had purchased but there is always next time!
