Since the beginning of the year, I managed to slay my stash by 70% while purchasing only three products (RMS Buriti Bronzer, Nars Liquid Blush in Torrid (just before they announced that they were now testing on animals) and Bite Beauty Lip Gloss in Strawberry. My minimalist approach on makeup has been a breath of fresh air; when I now look at my collection, I just see superstar products!
That being said, since I’ve been very good all year, I have decided to reward myself with some new products and take advantage of Sephora’s Fall VIB Sale. I need (well mostly want) to acquire some new products that I will use in the next year, just to make sure to not overload again my bathroom shelves and drawers. All these products are not only in my WishList, they’re already in my cart, plus a couple that I’m still undecided, since I want them more than need them!
In my cart …
Kate Somerville All Glow, No Glitter ExfoliKate Trio | 90$CND
I recently tried a sample of the ExfoliKate Cleanser Daily Foaming Wash and I had a revelation. I always said that you shouldn’t pay a lot for cleansers as they stay on the skin for 30 seconds, but that was before I tried this one. It literally made my face smoother, just like a baby’s bottom. This Kate Sommerville set is a deal and a steal at 90$.
Sephora Favorites Beauty Sleep | 39$CND
After rigorous evaluations, this year’s Holiday Sephora Favorites Makeup sets are not exciting, except the skincare sets that really stand out. I’ve tried all the products included in the Beauty Sleep Set and they are amazing! This assortment contains a lot of Deluxe samples and we should never underestimate those formats as they all contain much more product than we think.
Sephora Favorites Scouted by Sephora | 42$CND
Curiosity is the main reason why I want this set. With the exception of the wonderful Brazilian Bum Bum cream from Sol de Janeiro, the rest are products I have been wanting to try for a while now. Great value when you add it all up!
Sephora Collection Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover | 19$CND (200ml)
This waterproof eye makeup remover will be a repurchase. During our hard and cold winter months, I only wear waterproof mascaras, so this product will come handy. Not the sexiest buy but a must for me.
Dr Jart+ Best Face Forward | 25$CND
Dr Jart+ Ceramidin Cream is hands down the best moisturizing product I’ve ever used to cure the dryness around my mouth due to my excess drewling when I sleep (TMI, I know). Since a little drop goes a long way, this format is enough for months to come. The Cicapair Tiger Grass Cream is the new line from the brand, so I’m anxious to see how it will perform on some redness patches on my skin. Overall, this is a great value!
Kate Somerville EradiKate & Cleanse Acne-Prone Skin | 34$CND
I have had EradiKate for so long, even BeardMan got used to see it on my chin. This will be a repurchase and I’ll keep repurchasing until the day I don’t have any more breakouts. This product works so well; I apply it at night and in the morning, the pimples are GONE! It’s nice that the cleanse is now included – it’ll be fun to try!
Dr Jart+ Premium Beauty Balm | 48$CND
Holy Grail, period! I can’t ever be without this foundation/BB cream. It stays put for more than 14 hours without breaking down, fading or creasing. The SPF 45 in this product makes it even better. LOVE… LOOOOOOOVE!
Josie Maran Argan Daily Moisturizer SPF 47 Protect and Perfect | 44$CND
Unfortunately, my previous bottle slipped out of my hands and I’ve been missing it ever since. A 100% winner – I use it to mix with all my regular but subpar foundations. Since my skin is much drier these days, it needs some moisturizing and this product will come handy. Alone, it’s a little too dark on my light skin but as a mixer, it enhances a regular foundation into an amazing one! Furthermore, it doesn’t break me out. Such an underrated product…
Buxom Lips Off Leash Plumping 15-Piece Mini Lip Collection | 74$CND
I’ve used up almost all my Buxom Lip Glosses this past year so it’s now time to buy some more. I prefer buying this set of deluxe-sized glosses since I’ve never been able to empty my regular size products.
Laura Mercier Mode To Modern Caviar Stick Eye Colour Collection | 50$CND
If you have been following my blog for a long time, you know how much I love Laura Mercier Caviar Sticks, so this set is right up my alley. The four colours included in this assortment are so pretty, it’s really a must-have. Even if they’re not full size format, there plenty of product for a least the next six months (Yes, really).
Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz | 27$CND (or 54$CND if I buy 2 shades)
Every Sephora VIB sale (Fall and Spring), I buy a Brow Wiz! It’s unequivocally the best brow pencil and with my “barely there” brows, this is a must!!! This fall, I really want to try the Caramel shade and my usual Taupe.
The grand total, for now, is at 519$CND (Ishhhhhhh!)
Still thinking about it…
Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit – Volume 3 | 95$CND
I’ve regretted so much not buying Volume 1 or 2, I’ve told myself that no matter what, I would get volume 3. I certainly don’t need it but Hourglass makes the most beautiful powders. In my honest opinion, this palette is a great deal; each pan is the size of a “Mini” travel-size product from hourglass, but at half the price. I know from experience that these powders take forever to finish, and I’ll get bored out before finishing it! What should I do???
Sunday Riley Power Couple Duo: Total transformation Kit | 110$CND
I’ve been missing these two so much since finishing them last spring. I wish I could find a less expensive dupe. Any suggestion??? If you hesitate to try them and have the money, go ahead as they are that really good…
Sephora Collection PRO Flawless Light Powder Brush #50 | 47$CND
Thee past two years, I’ve been building a nice collection of makeup brushes, and Sephora’s PRO brushes have been some of my favourites. I was recently in-store and thought #50 is exactly what I need to use on my future Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit – Volume 3 😜
It Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream with SPF 50+ | 49$CND
I’m surprised that I didn’t already buy this It Cosmetics CC+ Cream! I’ve been waiting for this brand to come to Sephora Canada for ages. What’s not to like: CC Cream + SPF 50 = exactly want I need! I have so many foundations in my stash to finish, but I want it BAD. The dilemma is real …
Hourglass Confession Refillable Lipstick Set | 66$CND
I saw it in-store and I was hooked. The texture is fabulous, the shades are so perfect and what about that splendid packaging. It’s a deal at 66$CND, ridiculous to say but it is. It’s really hard to get me excited about lipsticks but this set is testing my minimalist discipline big time!
I have to stop because at this point, I will go bankrupt if I buy everything in my cart and WishList. As you see and know already, makeup and skincare these days cost a pretty penny … I’m curious on what’s the number one product you will buy!!!
Happy Shopping $$$
