I thought I would write this year’s VIB Sale makeup recommendations differently. I chose to list my 10 ultimate favorite products. These are my Holy Grail items, the ones that I just cannot live without.  In my book, these are perfection and totally cruelty-free!

#1

Dr Jart+ Premium Beauty Balm

My Top 10 Sephora VIB Sale Recommendations | Makeup (2017) - Curly Spring Blossom -

If I could only buy one foundation for the rest of my life, it would be Dr Jart+ Premium Beauty Balm. I always have one or two in backup. What’s not to love: Long wearing, SPF 45 and never look cakey (even after a 10 hour at work)!!! You can read my in-dept review HERE!

#2

Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz, Brow Powder Duo & Brow Gel

 

 

There are no product on the market that look more natural and are easier to use than ABH Brow Wiz, Brow Powder Duo and her Brow Gel. I used to be a Deep Brow Pomade girl but not anymore. In the last years, I tried so many brow pencils, powders and gels, that I can 100% tell you that these are the BEST.

Note: I’ve had my ABH Brow Powder Duo for 3 years and it still looks brand new (Such a great value!)

#3

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush Collection

My Top 10 Sephora VIB Sale Recommendations | Makeup (2017) - Curly Spring Blossom -

Hands down, the most natural powder blushes out there. They blend so nicely and the colors are so darn stunning. These blushes give that nice flush tint that makes us look fresh and glowy.

My Top 10 Sephora VIB Sale Recommendations | Makeup (2017) - Curly Spring Blossom -

Note: I would HIGHLY suggest (I just bought it!) the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit – Volume 3. Each pan is like a “Mini” version and after more than one year of wearing my favourite one in the full size version, it’s still more than half full. Worth every penny!

#4

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette

My Top 10 Sephora VIB Sale Recommendations | Makeup (2017) - Curly Spring Blossom -

Fabulous FINISHING powders (These are not HIGHLIGHTERS)! To be honest, I bought this palette two years ago and I barely touched it. One day though, I looked at a tutorial and this girl was putting these finishing powders all over her face. I was sceptical but I still tried it and, I never looked back. OMG! It’s sooooooo beautiful all over.

Note: Using a fluffy brush is ideal as a dense one would be too obvious on my fair skin!

#5

Kevyn Aucoin The Contour Book The Art of Sculpting + Defining Volume II

My Top 10 Sephora VIB Sale Recommendations | Makeup (2017) - Curly Spring Blossom -

I was so happy when I saw that Kevyn Aucoin brought back this A++++ face palette. By far, the best value out of every palette out there. Read my full review for all the advantages of this beauty HERE.

Note: The packaging is a little boring but the products are to die for.

#6

Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colour 

My Top 10 Sephora VIB Sale Recommendations | Makeup (2017) - Curly Spring Blossom -

You must read the post I did about these wonderful Caviar Sticks HERE. This year, Mode To Modern Caviar Stick Eye Colour Collection should be in every makeup lover’s cart 😉. These stay put all day, they don’t transfer or crease. So versatile for stunning looks.

#7

Laura Mercier Eye Art Artist’s Palette

My Top 10 Sephora VIB Sale Recommendations | Makeup (2017) - Curly Spring Blossom -

I don’t own the Laura Mercier Eye Art Artist’s Palette, but I do own EVERY colors in other LM palettes or in the single form. Aside from Viseart, Laura Mercier’s shadows are among the very best on the market. They blend like a dream, fallouts are minimal, they last all day and these particular shades are so beautiful. If you have brown or green eyes, you need to check this one out.

I know it’s an older palette and it’s definitely not trendy but I assure you that this is such a gem. I have 5 LM eyeshadow palettes in my collection, that says something right?!!!

#8

Coola SPF 30 Daydream Mineral Primer

My Top 10 Sephora VIB Sale Recommendations | Makeup (2017) - Curly Spring Blossom -

Why on earth this Coola sunscreen/primer is not more hyped???? This is simply the best primer that I’ve tried. Primers are my worst “makeup” enemy as they don’t work on my skin type and believe me, I’ve tried more than 20 at least. This little wonder does it all: it primes and protects and furthermore, it sinks right through. I was so excited when Sephora Canada started carrying Coola because the only way I could get my hands on this last year was by pressuring BeardMan to get it for me when he was in a meeting in the States. My poor boyfriend!!!!

Note: Be aware that this product has a big CON: it contains shimmer particles that makes it IMPOSSIBLE to wear by itself. Under makeup it’s gorgeous but why would a company put simmer, WHY !!!???.

#9

Josie Maran Argan Daily Moisturizer SPF 47 Protect and Perfect

Sephora VIB Sale WishList | 2017 Curly Spring Blossom

This moisturizer is sadly a little too dark for my skin tone but no worries, since I’m using it as a mixer. I’m telling you that this moisturizer/sunscreen/foundation turns the worst foundation in my collection into a superstar. Exaggerating? NOPE! On top of it, I never had breakouts to report. Girlfriends, this is GOOD!

#10

RMS Buriti Bronzer

My Top 10 Sephora VIB Sale Recommendations | Makeup (2017) - Curly Spring Blossom -

This is by far my best purchase of the year. I swear, I didn’t think a cream bronzer like this could ever exist. Thanks RMS! It melts right into my skin for a natural look. The color mimics a real tan to perfection. This 8th “wonder of the world” needs a proper review ASAP!

Do you have in your collection one of these products?

Sephora CollectionWaterproof Eye Makeup Remover | Wednesday Obsession

Sephora CollectionWaterproof Eye Makeup Remover | Wednesday Obsession

Winter has come and gone since I’ve done a Wednesday Obsession’s post but this product was so overwhelmingly perfect, that I had to get out of my hibernation and kickstart this series back.

Going through my stash (and after my massive decluttering), I’ve noticed that I was kind of short on my eye makeup remover supply, so I sorted through my bag of samples and found this Sephora Collection Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover and I immediately started to test it, because at this point, all of the ones I’ve tried this year just weren’t good enough to tell the world. But after a week of using this Sephora Eye Makeup Remover, I’m amazed at how easy this formula takes off any eye makeup; with just one swap (ok maybe two, but you get the point), everything is GONE!!! I may have just found my Holy Grail right there and on the plus side, this 6.76oz bottle retails for only $19Cnd, which is not that bad for a product of this quality.

Pros:

♥ Eye makeup just glides right off (ZERO makeup left),

♥ No need to scrub,

♥ Doesn’t sting my eyes,

♥ Really affordable,

♥ Doesn’t create a lot of oily residue.

Sephora CollectionWaterproof Eye Makeup Remover | Wednesday Obsession

Cons:

♥ Although the brand states that this product wasn’t tested on animals, Sephora Collection products are NOT, to my knowledge, cruelty- free). Grey zone here!

For the price, it’s by far the best Eye Makeup Remover I’ve tried. Waterproof makeup and brow pommade just don’t stand a chance with this EFFECTIVE product. I’ve used the “cult favorite” Lancôme BI-FACIL-Double-Action Eye Makeup Remover before ($39Cnd for 4.2oz), and I much prefer this one. As you know, Sephora 15% sale (for VIB Rouge) is coming in April, and since I’m still on my 2017 No-Buy/Low-Buy, it will takes fantastic products to make me deviate from my commitment, but this product delivers BIG TIME!!! Already in the cart!

Note: Reviews on the Sephora website are agreeing with me 😉
