Sephora’s VIB sale is starting tomorrow (Yay!), I’m always so excited about lots of stuff I want but… This year, as you may or may not know, I’ve been makeup declutering for the past month and oh! boy I’ve come to realize that I really spent a crazy (I mean CRAZY) amount $$$ on beauty. How much is too much? Realistically, I will probably throw half of the stuff in the garbage or give it away!!! Am I throwing my hard earn money away? Since I’m not rich, just middle-class like a majority of us, I’ve been thinking a lot lately about my stash!!! (Damn declutering) I’m such a downer today (Boo!Boo!). Anyway, my Sephora’s wish list for sunday’s event (which I won’t be attending because I’m working) is getting shorter by the minute, beard man (for real) will go instead mainly to get my mom’s products!
That being said, my passion for makeup is real and won’t go away anytime soon but it surely comes at a price. In my case, it’s less restaurants, buying on sale a lot etc.!!! I hope you don’t think I’m complaining because I’m not, I just want to be more rational …
First step of me being more rational (by the way it’s not fun being rational):
♥ A total NO BUY CLAUSE on lip products ’til november. Why? Because I have more than 50 and that’s the one thing (with mascara) that you can’t give to anybody (except maybe your BFF who doesn’t mind) for obvious hygiene raisons.
Ok! coming back to Sephora, so what will I buy? Here is my love list…
♥ L’Occitane hand cream & Philosophy Purity Made Simple are for my mom!
♥ Hourglass “Ambient Lighting” palette will surely be in the bag. In my stash, I don’t really own that kind of powders and you know I’ve talked about wanting this palette for like … EVER!!
♥ Dr. Jart+ “Premium Beauty Balm SPF-45” will be both my sunscreen/foundation for this summer! This is an AMAZING product, that makes my skin look almost flawless without breaking me out.
♥ Shiseido oil-free SPF-42 is the only other product that also doesn’t break me out. For the longest time, since I had awful adult acne, I would avoid sunscreen because they were making my skin break like crazy; the results of years of not protecting my face properly have resulted in premature wrinkles. Not fun!
♥ The Beauty Blender set is a maybe and the rest is for the future … or never !
What will you be buying?
