It’s that time of year again… Yes, thanksgiving and christmas are right around the corner, but we all know I’m talking about Sephora’s VIB Rouge sale! The Christmas of beauty addicts. We’ve all been waiting for months now, and we’ve all been planning out our purchases. I’ve been seeing wish lists for sale everywhere I turn, so I thought I’d share my own! Now, I do notice that most people use these sales to purchase insanely expensive products. I’m not really made of that kind of money haha, so I simply save the more expensive products I want for the sale. By more expensive I just mean within the $30-$50 range. Now, normally I have insanely long and unrealistic wish lists, but this time I’ve really narrowed it down to the products I think I can afford and that I’ve been wanting for a long time. Let’s see what I’m (hopefully) going to be picking up!
Let’s start with the most random product. Now, if you know me you’ll know I’m not big on lipsticks. I’m more of a gloss or liquid lipstick person. But I just can’t explain it, the second I saw this YSL Rouge Pur Couture Dazzling Lights Lipstick in Rose Stiletto I was in love. The color is perfection for me, but it was the packaging too. You know when there’s a luxury product on your wishlist that you can’t really justify but you just know it’ll bring you happiness? Yeah, that’s what this is.
No need to go into detail here… If you’ve been around, you’ll have seen this Tarte Tight & Bright Multi-Mask on my many wishlists for a while now. I always just figured I’d save it for this sale, so that’s going to happen for sure.
I don’t want to say much about this either, mostly because I’ve already tried it and have been saving my in depth review for the blog. I basically had this in the wrong shade, so I returned and waited for the sale to buy my right shade. Stay tuned for the long/rambly review soon to come…
When I get obsessed, I get obsessed. I’ve been crazy about bronzers lately. I just can’t seem to get enough. I’m constantly buying new ones and testing some out- I just love how bronzers look all of a sudden. This Too Faced Sweetie Pie Bronzer has been on my radar ever since it came out, but the gold glitter put me off. After watching a few people use it and realizing it was just a film that came off, I knew I needed it. I love peachy warm bronzers for blush and that’s precisely what this looks like- and my body is ready!
You all know I’ve been all about The Ordinary this past year. I’ve trusted them and they’ve had my back. Well, I don’t know if my skin is craving a switch up or if something else has changed, but I’ve been breaking out again recently. Not happy about it. So I decided it’s time to get the Kate Somerville Anti-Bac Lotion that I’ve always considered trying. I’m really praying this helps me out right now!
This may be a more recent release, but that doesn’t take away from the obsession! The Huda Beauty Obsessions Eyeshadow Palettes were one of the most exciting releases I’ve seen for a while now. The Warm Brown one just looks like me in a palette, and I have always been curious about her formulas! Now, this is super affordable so really it’s just a coincidence that I’m buying it in the sale. I just figured why not.
So that’s all I’m planning to buy. I will definitely be getting all of these this first weekend, but luckily VIB Rouge members get two weekends of the sale! So, I do think I may go back for some more. I do have a list of products I might go for if I can justify it. A few honourable mentions are the Peter Thomas Roth Max Complexion Correction Pads and the Stila Rose Gold Retro Liquid Glitter – we shall see!
Let me know the one product you’re most excited about getting! Mine would have to be the YSL lipstick, surprisingly enough!
