SEPHORA . VIB ROUGE WISHIN'
The holiday sale we’ve been anxiously awaiting has arrived! Welcome the 2015 VIB Rouge 20% OFF sale, redeemable online and in stores Nov 6th-9th with the code ROUGE20. Knowing this sale was around the corner I have avoided making any and all beauty purchases over the course of the past two months, which means I’m quite desperate for new products. Furthermore, since there is no way in hell I am reaching VIB Rouge status this year – I’m $700 away – I need to milk this sale for all it’s worth! To prep for the debt I’m about to incur, I mean... my shopping experience… I’ve created the following wish list, featuring seven of the most lust worthy products Sephora has to offer... well in my opinion anyway.
NEST . White Sandalwood ($78)
On a quest for a new fragrance I stumbled upon this beautiful blend of white Indian sandalwood, creamy almond, white musk, and exotic spices. Having already being a fan of masculine-inspired scents, I was completely smitten with the warmth hailing from the musky notes in this perfume. The blend is intoxicating, warm, and truly unique. The kind of fragrance you wear for a day spent in the sheets, or in my case, daily to give the illusion that you’ve just returned from a romp with a handsome mate.
Huda Beauty . Classic False Lashes in Sasha #11 ($22)
After years of following, and lusting after, the lash-goddess that is Huda Beauty (Huda Kattan), I’ve become determined to mimic her dramatic lashes. Luckily she’s made that task easy as pie with her own line of false lashes available on Sephora.com. Made from synthetic fibers, each pair of cruelty-free lashes can be worn up to 15 times, making them well worth their price point. I’ve got my sights set on the style Sasha #11:, which is described as a medium volume lashes that delivers subtle drama with a slightly longer length. Can’t wait to bat these bad boys at any gent who looks my way.
bareMinerals . Flawless Definition Volumizing Mascara ($23)
While searching for a new mascara I stumbled into the ‘Top-Rated’ section of Sephora and found the bareMinerals Flawless Definition Volumizing Mascara sitting pretty at the top of the list. Featuring the NutriPlump™ formula, this mascara is said to plump lashes up to 600% to deliver thick, full, fluttering lashes. Plus the mineral-rich formula helps promote healthy lash growth. Needless to say I’m eager to test it out!
boscia . Charcoal Deep-Pore Cleansing Stick Treatment ($35)
I’ve been a long time fan of the Charcoal line by boscia, so when the new Charcoal Deep-Pore Cleansing Stick Treatment hit the Sephora page you bet I perked up. The purpose of the newest addition is to allow for concentrated pore-treatment, which further helps to draw out dirt, oil and impurities. ‘Infused with activated charcoal, glycolic acid, and artichoke leaf extract, this innovative cleansing stick targets skin concerns—absorbing toxins and impurities and detoxifying pores for a smoother, brighter, healthier-looking complexion’. My chin is in desperate need of this magical stick.
Sephora . Pro Contour Brush #79 ($43)
Given the small size of my face/facial features I find it difficult to use most contour brushes – they’re simply too fluffy to be precise. So I was elated to see this exclusive tapered brush by Sephora, made of high-grade natural and synthetic fibers. The size appears to be perfect for contouring and highlighting, especially for those of us with smaller features.
Farmacy . Eye Dew Total Eye Cream ($48)
Another top-rated product! After trying what feels like every eye cream Sephora has to offer I thought I would check out the top-rated section, and found this cream, which I had never previously heard of. Aside from the beautiful packaging drawing me in, this cream is also loaded with beneficial ingredients. A few to mention include:
- Echinacea GreenEnvy™ – a unique, patent-protected variant of echinacea purpurea that contains the highest known concentration of cichoric acid, which helps protect the skin by supporting natural collagen.
- Baobab Fruit Oil – naturally high in vitamins A, D, E and F, this ingredient supports cell membranes and provides antioxidant properties to help fight signs of aging.
- Ribose – supports natural cellular respiration, increasing the appearance of skin elasticity, smoothed wrinkles, and enhanced complexion.
- Strelitzia Nicolai Seed Aril Extract – helps illuminate the complexion while also minimizing dark circles and puffiness under the eyes.
- Rose Hip Extract – combats signs of aging with antioxidants and vitamins, and chamomile and calendula extracts reduce redness and soothe the skin.
Here’s hoping this cream can combat these tired, sad eyes.
Marc Jacobs Beauty . Re(Marc)able Full Cover Concealer ($38)
By no means do I need a new concealer, I have a full tube of the Make Up For Ever Full Cover Concealer sitting on my vanity, but that's not to say that I don't want a new one. After falling head over heels in love with the Marc Jacobs Beauty Marvelous Mousse Foundation last VIB Rouge sale I’ve decided I must try out the brand’s well-loved concealer. And given all the glowing reviews online I think it's a pretty good decision!
