There's been SO many great things I've scooped up and received for Christmas from Sephora. So of course I'm doing my necessary female duty and sharing what you should pick up on your next trip.
Dior Iconic Overcurl Mascara You may have read about my bummer with the Too Faced White Chocolate Chip Palette and I decided to head back to Sephora to return it since I didn't like it. I wandered around deciding if I needed anything (spoiler- I don't, but hey...Sephora) and since I'm obsessed with mascara I took a moment to browse that area. I saw the Dior Iconic Overcurl Mascara and hopped on my app and read some reviews. They were great so I took it up to the counter and the woman helping me was so thrilled I grabbed this one because she said it's like a hidden secret. She's been using it for months and loves it. I am seriously in love with this mascara...I've been pairing it with a primer and the results are amaaaaazing. Maybe I'll have to snap a selfie soon to share how great my lashes look with it.
Sephora Favorites: Scouted By Sephora One of the best thing about after Christmas sales is when some of the Sephora Favorites get marked down, which was the case with this one. After reading reviews I was a little skeptical, but decided to take a chance. Inside the box are two different lip colors- one that also doubles as a cheek stain in a pretty pink color from Wander Beauty. I have only used it on my lips since I'm typically not a huge fan of cheek stains and love the subtle hint of color it brings. The other lip color comes in a matchbook package from Besame Cosmetics and has five different shades inside.
My favorite part of the Sephora Favorites box is the Makeup Eraser Mini which I've heard amazing things about. The Makeup Eraser is used only with warm water and takes away makeup effortlessly...I am LOVING it. Another favorite is the GrandeLIPS Hydrating Lip Plumper that is a nice boost for the lips, especially ones that could use a pump up like mine. It's perfect for date night or when you're snapping a selfie ;)
Last but not least the MILK MAKEUP Ubame Mascara was included and it's a nice buildable mascara from a brand that I probably wouldn't have heard of if it wasn't for this cute little box.
The Estee Edit Pore Vanishing Stick I wasn't quite sure how much I was going to use or like this, but it's honestly worked so much better than a lot of primers in my makeup stash. So simple to apply which I love about things in a "stick" form. I apply moisturizer in these crazy dry winter months and when it dries simply roll some primer over my t-zone area which is the worst spot for me and it drastically reduces shine all day.
NARS Velvet Lip Glide I added a deluxe sample of this awesome stuff with some of my Sephora points in the Le Palace color which is a deep cherry red. I love it so much that I will be picking up a full size when I run out. It's a semi- matte formula so it's not terribly drying and the color lasts several hours. My lips felt nice and moisturized while still looking nice and matte and the deep red color is perfectly pretty.
I may need to cool it for a while with the beauty buys but I just can't resist a sale and a good deal at my favorite store.
Have you tried any of these products? What's your favorite recent beauty purchase?
Linking up with Amanda for Friday Favorites. Have a great weekend everyone!
