Online Shopping Trickz of the Trade: Scoring Sephora Sales

Sephora sometimes sneakily places items on sale and before you notice that they are giving away cosmetics for next to nothing, everything is normally snatched up and long gone.

Sad sign.

So what’s the trick for scoring a Sephora sale?


Allow the Muse to tell you……….

You may already know this tip but it’s fairly simple the Muse suggests doing it once a week or once every two weeks to carry away the swag from Sephora when a sale hits.

What is it Muse? What is it? How do we score at Sephora?

Simply search “sale” on Sephora’s site and anything and everything that’s currently on clearance will pop up on the screen!

Hauled It: Vincent Longo Eye Shimmer Souffle Review and Swatches

hauled

I wanted to do one big post about Vincent Longo Eye Shimmer Souffles with a review, swatches, and an FOTD for each color but I knew by the time I actually get around to doing an FOTD in every color that they’ll long be gone from Sephora for the price I paid! So I decided to do the review, swatches, and the haul pictures for you and sometime in the future I’ll do a few FOTD’s using the product.

Anyway….the moral of today’s story is….

You may have noticed right after Christmas or maybe a bit before Vincent Longo was cut from the Sephora line up and reduced to 50% Off. Later on it was reduced further to 75% off but by the time I actually got around to looking into what was available (I was trying to be good you see) it was all blessedly gone. I seriously didn’t need anything at the moment and it seemed pointless to bother looking, sometimes the Muse plays it safe.

Flash forward a few days (like Monday of this week) and I was at Sephora and allllllllll the Vincent Longo I could possibly want was on display and reduced by 75% which means that each of the Vincent Longo Eye Shimmer Souffles I hauled were $6 USD each! w00t super deal! I couldn’t resist. I own a few of these already but at $6 bucks who could resist stashing up on some more so I hauled six!

You should really get over to Sephora and see what you can snag because these are truly a deal in a half. A little products goes a long way as they are richly pigmented and have a nice shimmer finish without the disco ball effect. The formula is silky, smooth, blends easily and dries down to a powder-like finish. On the eye they are stunning to say the least. I’m wondering how they’ll work as a base for pigment. Must try that out! Plus they are amazingly long wearing! No creasing, fading, and they stick around for ages…you really have to get serious remover to get everything off your lid after use.

All in all I suggest heading to Sephora to see of you can score some for the rock bottom price. I nailed six in total! Well worth it and cheap to boot.

If anyone is interested I did mistakenly pick up an extra color, Copperleif, for my sister however when I got home she informed me she already had it. If you’d like it it’s $10 USD which includes shipping, confirmation, and paypal fees without the US and for non-US it’s $11 USD which includes first class airmail shipping and paypal but sadly no confirmation or tracking.

Did you grab anything from the Vincent Longo clearance at Sephora?

What did you get?

Musings of the Day: Your Fav Concealer

musings

This one is a tiny bit hard for the Muse to answer since she has a slew of concealers that she really likes but since her taste in concealers changes regular and from day to day she finds a new one she likes, she decided it was best to pick the one she uses most regularly as of late…

I couldn’t pick one because at the moment I’m feeling the love for Mally Beauty Cancellation Concealer System in a major way!

My second favorite and totally holy grail material is the Bobbi Brown Concealer Palette!

At the moment both of these two palettes are my go to for fresh, awake, and well concealed eyes!

What about you?

What’s your HG concealer that you’d simply die without?

WANT: Lush The Strokes Hair Treatment

Ooooooooooo looks what’s coming back to Lush!

lush+the+strokes

Welcome back gorgeous!

The Muse absolutely adores Lush Jasmine and Henna Fluff Eaze and she welcomed it with open arms into the Lush haircare family however with it’s release the Muse had to bid farewell to her favorite hair treatment, The Strokes.

But it’s back!

Lush has introduced The Strokes back into the Retro Lush Catalog and the Muse is all about stocking up on a few and stashing them in her fridge! The Strokes tames my curls and adds tons of shine and body! It smells fresh and citrus like and leaves my hair scented as such for days and days and days after using!

To use The Strokes simply slap a heaping amount on dry hair and slip on a shower cap or wrap your head in a towel. The Muse normally runs a towel under extremely hot water, rings it out, and wraps around her with the treatment on. I leave it on for about an hour although they suggest 20 minutes or so. After the hour is up I rinse off and shampoo (no conditioner required) and I’m left with smooth, soft locks that remain as such for at least a month!

Best hair treatment evers!

The Muse adores The Strokes and is happy for it’s return! Remember kids Lush Hair Treatments only last 3-4 months so use them in that time or they’ll go bad!

Snag yours from Lush for $17.95 USD per a pot!

What’s your fav Lush hair treatment?

Remember The Strokes?

Tell the Muse!
