So who doesn't love Sephora? And who doesn't love saving money? Well, personally, I like both, and being a combination of a broke college student and fashionista who tries to have the best of the best everything, sometimes saving money gets hard. However, it's not hard if you know exactly what to get and exactly how much to spend. The following products are ones that I absolutely SWEAR BY, like I mean can't live without. Well now, I found a way to get all of them for under $100 bucks. This post will also help some of you out with Christmas gift shopping. So let's get to it:
This stuff is amazing. It gets everything off my face at night including my mascara. I bought it because it says "one-step" because personally, I hate facial cleanser that require multiple steps. I want to wake up and go not have to use 2 toners, a scrub, a wash and 5 lotions, but that's just me. Perfect and easy. Smells fresh too.
2. Nars Orgasm and Laguna Duo. $23.
If you have ever read a single post of mine, you will know I am a huge Nars fan. This due is perfectly pocket-sized and has two of the best colors Nars has ever come out with: Orgasm blush and Laguna bronzer. I love them so much I have each shade in a full-sized pallete, a stick and even a liquid illuminating version (lol that was back when I worked 5 days a week).
3. Rosebud Perfume Company Smith's Rosebud Salve. $7.
If you have read any of my past "what I cant live without" posts, you will know I swear by this stuff. It works for many uses some of them including: moisturizing the skin and lips, makeup remover, ends conditioner, clearing up pimples, eyeshadow base, blush, cuticle cream, perfume base and many more uses. It smells rosey too. There are many variation of it and nowadays it even comes in a squeeze tube but I prefer the classic flavor and tin.
I personally think the basic set of colors is all I need. Plus, I am a very on-the-go person, so toting around large palettes can be a pain. The basics palette suits my needs and is a perfect, portable size. Don't waist your time purchasing the basics 1 and basics 2 palettes however, I have analyzed thema nd they are virtually the same shades.
So so far we are at around $70 and we have a good haul going. For $10 now, I will get you hooked on the TokyoMilk Perfume line. It is called "dark Tainted Love" and it comes with a cute black tin, a small rollerball and a lip gloss. The scent is sexy and alluring and will have you hooked. Also, as part of the TokyoMilk line, there is a scent for every personality (TokyoMilk post coming soon).
Personally, this is where I would purchase my signature Nars Turkish Delight lip gloss, but I feel it is my duty to introduce you to St. Tropez "One Night Only". Also, if you are weary about self tanners or want to buy even more stuff, I believe some sephoras are still carrying a travel size which sells for around $9 instead of $18. This stuff goes on smoothly and gives an impeccable color job. Perfect for November which I feel is the month where I am the most pasty white.
A whole haul of new makeup from Sephora for under $100 (approximately $97 to be exact ;) ). Also keep this list in mind when Christmas shopping, especially the TokyoMilk fragrances. Thanks for reading and happy Sephora-ing =)
