Yes, it's really that time of year again. Can you believe it? I've been giving my wallet a rest for the last couple of months or so, using up products I already have, in preparation for the big sale. To a beauty junkie like me, this is almost as good as Christmas. Almost. But I do have to say, it's a wonderful thing that my birthday just so happens to fall during the sale. Hello totally justifiable reason to go shopping!
Since I've been refraining from purchasing anything beauty related lately, and taunting myself with trips to the mall "just to look", you can bet your bottom dollar that I have a list of the goods I want to get my hands on. I thought I would share them with you so we can eagerly await the sale together!
Sephora Favorites - Superstars
This one was a no-brainer for me, considering that I wanted to purchase three of the included products anyway (brow wiz, eyeliner, and mascara). For only a few dollars more than I would have spent, I could get this gorgeous box of goodies. It's only fair that I do the economical thing and get more for my money, right?
Bite Beauty Lipstick in Pomegranate
I've gotten over my shyness about wearing bold lip colors everyday and now completely embrace it. There's just something about the colder months that make you want to rock a purple, or pink, or red lip. However, my selection of reds is a bit lacking. I've got some orange-red colors, but they don't compliment my fair skin the best. I saw a lot of recs for this particular color, a true cherry-red, and knew I had to give it a try!
Philosophy Hope in a Jar for Dry Skin
This is my absolute favorite brand of skin care. I use their facial cleanser every day, morning and night. I've also tried the night cream and original Hope in a Jar. I knew I wanted to re-invest in a good moisturizer, but lately my skin has been so darn dry that I didn't know if the original would cut it. When I saw that they had a dry skin formula, it went right on my list. I'm looking forward to seeing how this compares and if it truly holds up to the name.
Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Moonstone
This is one of those "beauty bloggers made me do it" things. It wasn't even on my radar as something I wanted to buy, but I was sitting around watching haul videos on YouTube over the weekend (total guilty pleasure) and suddenly it was like I had to have it. I'm sure I have products already that give similar results, but then again you could probably say that about everything I'm listing here.
Benefit Gimme Brow in Medium/Dark
My latest obsession has been filling in my brows and trying all the things to see what I like the best (hence the brow wiz in the favorites set). It's funny, I never really took the time to do this, but one day I decided to use that little brow powder/wax set I had purchased ages ago and see what I could do. Even though the color was a little off, the difference was ah-mazing. I actually have Gimme Brow in the lighter color, which I realized is way too light for me, so I wanted to grab the dark shade for those morning when I don't want to go through the whole shebang but still want to polish my look.
I'm sure multiple trips to Sephora will be involved for the sale, but this is what I am most excited to get. What are you looking forward to buying?
