It’s a little too easy to get carried away during the Sephora Holiday Bonus Event! When you got 20% off in your pocket on a variety of luxury brands how in the world can you say no? I made a list of some items shouldn’t bother buying and other that you might want to consider as I’ve tested them out personally and do like them!
Take a look!
Tatcha The Silk Peony Melting Eye Cream
Don’t buy Tatcha’s new eye cream. Just don’t. Trust me! It’s tempting with 20% off but if you have drier eyes it’s going to do NOTHING for you. I purchased it when it launched and felt like I wasted money. Don’t bother!
It Cosmetics Confidence in a Gel Lotion
Don’t buy Confidence in a Cream! I hate it. It’s not moisturizing enough, it’s over hyped as hell, and it has a really strong scent. Do however, buy Confidence in a Gel Lotion! It’s a gel that quickly absorbs, smooths, softens, and hydrates skin very nicely!
Too Faced Born This Way Naturally Radiant Concealer
Don’t buy Too Faced’s Born This Way Concealer no matter what you’ve heard! I know most people say this is hydrating and creamy and pigmented. It is quite creamy but it sheers out to nothingness which is upsetting if you’re hoping to conceal pesky eye issues with this!
Too Faced Born This Way Super Coverage Multi-Use Sculpting Concealer
Do buy Born This Way Super Coverage Concealer instead! It’s a little drier than other Born This Way products but the coverage is excellent and it multitasks as both a foundation and a concealer.
Milk Makeup Flex Concealer
Don’t buy Milk Makeup concealer anything especially Flex Concealer which promises pigmented coverage but it’s really sheer and drags under eyes during application and blending. Meh!
Milk Makeup Hydro Grip Primer
Do buy Milk Makeup’s awesome primer but full disclosure it contains alcohol! I wish they’d do away with the alcohol here but I’ll use it anyway! This formula is so beautiful! It’s a gel-like texture that absorbs easily and hydrates skin for makeup beautifully.
Peter Thomas Roth Skin to Die For Darkness-Reducing Under-Eye Treatment Primer
Don’t buy Peter Thomas’s Roth ridiculous new eye treatment primer. Apparently this is supposed to act to prep eyes for concealer as well as treats dark circles but it didn’t work for either job.
Yves Saint Laurent Water Stain Lip Stain
Don’t buy YSL’s Water Stain! The formula sounds tempting with the promise of hydrating long wear but it’s sheer and wears for two seconds before disappearing!
Bare Minerals Bare Pro Longwear Matte Lipstick
DO buy as many Bare Pro Lipsticks as your cart can handle! These creamy, gorgeous mattes wear long with excellent pigment and a very hydrating feel on lips! Better still do buy
Tarte Baba Bomb Moisturizer
Loaded with great botanicals and antioxidants do try out Tarte’s Baba Bomb that smooths, softens, and plumps up skin!
The Inkey List Brighten-i Eye Cream
Don’t buy Inkey List’s new eye cream! The promise of brighter well hydrated eyes makes it tempting but in reality this formula does very little!
The Inkey List Q10 Serum
Do try the Inkey List’s Q10 Serum! It’s very hydrating, quickly absorbs, and will protect skin from free radicals!
Sephora Keep On Masking Face Mask Holder
Do spend a few bucks on Sephora’s Face Mask Holder! This handy little silcone mask goes over your sheet mask to hold it tightly in place so it doesn’t slip around while you’re doing other stuff!
Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Instant Retouch Setting Powder
If you’re on the hunt for a good, silky finishing powder or one to lock in concealer do try out Fenty’s beautiful powder! Non-drying, great shade range (including a nice yellow for setting concealer), and it’s blends like a dream!
Natasha Denona Bloom Blush & Glow Palette
Do take the plunge on Natasha’s stunning Bloom Blush Palette if you love peachy pink golden glow looks!
The Inkey List Oil and Water Double Cleanser
Don’t buy Inkey’s Oil and Water Double Cleanser! It feels awful oily and leaves behind a good deal of makeup.
Drunk Elephant T.L.C. Sukari Babyfacial™ 25% AHA + 2% BHA Mask
Do try out Drunk Elephant’s great exfoliating mask! I use this once a week and I have to say I love it. It’s a heck of a lot easier using this than my physical exfoliating treatments and it isn’t as drying! Not to mention it makes my skin smoother and brighter after every use!
