Every November I always look forward to the Sephora VIB Rouge sale. Any beauty shopper knows that Sephora only offers their 20 percent sale twice a year so when it happens, it’s like Christmas came early. This is the time when you buy products that are a little pricey, but the discount makes it more affordable, or items that you need to get backs up. You may not need them now, but you’re going to soon and why pay full price later when you can get 20 percent off now?
Since I’m putting myself on a major, and I mean MAJOR, project no buy, I didn’t really buy that much at the Sephora sale. I did have two Sephora gift cards and two regular VISA gifts cards with a balance so I decided whatever is on here is how much I’ll spend. Gotta keep myself on a tight budget!
I picked up a Deborah Lippmann nail polish Single Ladies, which is the perfect cream red shade to wear this holiday season. It’s not a unique shade, it’s a dark red that I think many people will be rocking for the holidays or during the winter months.
I picked up two Bite Beauty products, first is the Matte Creme Lip Crayon in Pastille, which is a gorgeous neutral shade that’s perfect for every day wear. The second, which they had to order, is the Amuse Buche Lipstick in Mauvember 2016. I believe this is a limited edition color so I’d definitely check with your store before it sells out. It’s a beautiful mauve shade that will look nice on any skin tone.
The last item was the new limited edition NARS Sarah Moon Blush in Isadora. This is a neutral plum blush that looked great on my skin. This is going to be really nice for every day “no makeup” makeup looks. It’s nicely pigmented, and goes on smoothy like all NARS blushes do.
Before checking out I picked up my birthday gift, and I went with the Marc Jacobs Beauty set since I love that brand and always want to try more from it. The other option is a two-piece skincare set from Fresh.
I’m happy with my purchases and I can’t wait to dig in and try everything out. You can expect reviews of each of these items hitting the blog soon.
