Alright my lovely ladies… I am back with round two of this year’s gift guide–for this roundup of fancy fun, it’s the semi-annual Sephora VIB Beauty Insider Event!! This sale happens just a few times a year and it’s officially your BEST time to stock up on everything beauty and skin related [trust me, I am a professional in that department with how many things I test and try–haha]. Since I just posted my updated makeup and hair tutorials a few weeks ago via Instagram, this is YOUR chance to snag some of my seasonal must-haves and favorites for a fraction of the normal retail price. ++Just remember to use code VIBBONUS at checkout ++
P.S. Remember, feel free to send some of these goodies to your loved ones and family members as these are the gifts some of us gals REALLY want to see under the Christmas tree this year!!
1 Urban Decay Naked Cherry Eyeshadow Palette | This new pretty came to my casa last month and I’ve taken to using it VERY quickly… the pops of pink and red make it great for fall and winter, especially for those of you like me who have pink undertones to their skin! It’s super versatile and great for everyday AND date night, too.
2 Drunk Elephant Intensive Hydration Serum | To put it simply… you need this gel moisturizer!! Winter dries our skin out–mine included–and this gel serum is hands down my favorite. I use it both at morning and night and it helps keep my face hydrated. Their entire line of products are great, but this is my go-to and one I think so many people could benefit from!
3 Make Up Forever Aqua XL Waterproof Eyeliner | I’ve had a ton of questions lately on eyeliner and what I use and thankfully, a Sephora salesperson turned me onto this find a few months ago… it’s waterproof and will not rub off. It stays put once it’s applied and I’m extremely pleased with how easily it goes on–grab it for 20%, which makes it just $18
4 Dior Exuberant Matte Pink Lipstick | My go-to year-round shade for the lippies… don’t ask how many I keep on hand in case of emergency, because it wouldn’t be pretty if I ever ran out of this shade 😉
5 Peter Thomas Roth Cucumber Detox Eye Masks | OK, so I am going to be the guinea pig on this one–I’ve been wanting to try these and so I thought I should grab them today while they are on sale. I have heard people praising these de-puffers for their ability to help with under eye circles and such, so I will report back on my thoughts after I use them for a few weeks!
6 Hoola Cream-to-Powder Contour Stick | I’m all for easy, especially when it comes to my everyday makeup ritual, and this fairly new find has become a fast favorite [so much so I gave it away during our recent bunco favorite things party]… it’s great for defining cheekbones, forehead, nose and other facial features and it works with all skin tones. Easy to apply and less than $25 during this sale!
7 Miss Dior Eau de Toilette | I always sample new scents and fragrances, but for some reason I shift back to this trusty winner… it has the perfect feminine scent to it and I never get tired of it!! Adding this to my wish list ASAP.
8 BB Clean Beautyblender Set | YES!! Get in my shopping cart… a two-pack of my favorite makeup sponges AND a cleanser to keep them looking pristine = sold! I absolutely love the Beautyblender products, especially when it comes to applying concealer and foundation!
9 Living Proof Dry Shampoo Gift Set | My favorite dry shampoo of all time BUT this set comes with a mini size for FREE!!! With all the travel we have coming up, I am stocking up on this beauty must-have because I never leave home without it.
10 T3 Singlepass Curling Iron and Cura Hair Dryer | You know my love for these T3 hair tools runs deep… they are HANDS DOWN the best and the only tools I own… they rarely go on sale so GET THEM NOW!!!
11 Benefit They’re Real Mascara | A NEW LOVE for this lady!!! I had a friend recommend I try this mascara a few months ago, so I gave it a go and HOLY MOLY this one is GOOD… it lengthens and multiplies without looking clumpy–go for the blackest black shade ALWAYS, but be ready to use some eye makeup remover because it has major staying power!!
12 Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay in Place Foundation | The END-ALL of foundation… I’ve yet to find anything that compares to this. It lasts all day without creasing and the color matching is superb [I use 3N1/Ivory Beige for reference]
13 Hourglass Mineral Veil Primer | So I thought I was a MAC girl when it came to primers, but that was until I stumbled upon this goodness during my last online order from Sephora. If you need a maximum-powered primer, this is IT my friends… when I use this, my makeup looks the same at 8AM as it does as 8PM, so it is PERFECT for special occasions, weddings, holiday events, etc. It’s pricey so I don’t use it as my everyday primer, but it is SOOOOO good!
14 NARS Orgasm Infatuation Palette | One of my all-time favorite powder blushes and bronzers + their new highlighter all in one palette = sign me up! This is going to speedy up my morning makeup routine so I can get out of the house faster… winning!!
