It’s spring in Chicago, the weather is warming up, the sun is finally out, and Sephora is getting ready to have their annual spring 15 percent off sale. Basically, things are good. This is the time of year when many people take advantage of the sale and purchase products that are little too expensive because the discount makes it a little more affordable. It’s also the time to stock up on favorites, and try one or two new products. You never know, you may find a new favorite!
I typically don’t go too crazy during the spring sale. I usually wait until the 20 percent off sale in November since that’s when I typically run out of everything. This time around is no different, but there are quite a few things I’d like to get and test out.
My Sephora Wishlist
Everything on my list are new products. I didn’t plan that, they were just items that I really wanted to get. The first is the SMASHBOX Be Legendary Liquid Lip in Mauve Wife. ($24) I do get 30 percent off from their site so I may order it there if I can get free shipping. The other lip product is the TARTE Make Believe in Yourself Lip Paint. It’s a Quick Dry Matte Lip Paint ($20). I really want to try liquid lipsticks and do a blog post on my final thoughts.
For the face I’m picking up the NARS Sun Wash Diffusing Bronzer in Laguna. I really loved how this switched and I think it’ll look really nice on my skin. I don’t have it in my cart, but I’m on the hunt for a tinted moisturizer or light coverage foundation for spring and summer. I have to get matched since what’s in my account profile seems way too dark. I’m not fully committed, but I’d like to get a fun, bright eye liner for the summer. Something that would make my eyes pop and look great with a light, neutral eye look.
Every sale I have to get a mascara. It’s become a weird tradition for me. This time around I’m getting the TARTE Make Believe in Yourself Lights, Camera, Lashes. This mascara isn’t new, but it’s in special, limited edition packaging. It’s one of my favorite mascaras so I’m excited to get this one.
I always buy everything in store so I can swatch and try things on. Plus it’s more fun shopping in store! I can’t wait for the sale to start and share the items that I end up purchasing. Let me know in the comments what you plan on picking up.
