Sephora VIB Guide and Wishlist!




Hello readers and happy Thursday! ¬†Starting today, Sephora kicks off it’s 15% sale for VIB members (yay!) and I thought it would be nice to create a guide for some higher end products that are worth every penny but when you can apply a discount, well, why not! ūüôā



Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer (Illuminating)- Perfect for creating a healthy glow and excellent for aging skin.  Also available in oil free version and regular tinted moisturizer.

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush- Amazing blush that is blends effortlessly, provides a subtle glow and is a go-to for my simple makeup routine.

YSL Glossy Stains- Love these stains as they don’t feel drying and are highly pigmented.

HE Makeup


Givenchy Ange ou Demon Le Secret- This perfume has been a staple for years and is just very unique with notes of cranberry, green tea, white peony, sambac jasmine, blond woods and white musks.

Giorgio Armani Si- New to my collection, this fragrance delivers a sophisticated scent with notes of pear, freesia and amber wood.

Weekend Makeup Purchases!

Hi readers, I hope you all had a great weekend!

Just wanted to share some of my purchases I made over the weekend.


Since I had the 20% coupon for Sephora, I went ahead and purchased a few foundations. ¬†Though I love my Smashbox Liquid Halo HD Foundation, there’s always room for another favorite. ūüôā ¬†I picked up Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer (Illuminating), Perricone MD No Foundation Foundation Serum and Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation. Who knew Sephora now carries Giorgio Armani foundation. ¬†I’ve always wanted to try this foundation based on all the great reviews and I’m glad I was able to get it at a discount.


Mini Bite Beauty

Bite Beauty has individual mini lipsticks and lipglosses that would make great gifts or stocking stuffers.  I picked up the Luminous Creme Duo in Musk and Retsina.

I also purchased Sephora Moonshadow Baked Palette In the Tropics. ¬†It was on sale online, making this a sale on sale item since I used the additional 20% off. ¬†It should be arriving soon and I got it for $13! I think I got one of the last ones too because it’s no longer on the website.

Melted KissesI made a quick stop to Macy’s to see if they still had the Too Faced Melted Kisses Set ($25) and I got the last one there! ¬†Which brings me to my next point.

Too Faced is having their Friends and Family Sale online where you get 20% off your purchase now through 11/14. ¬†They have the Melted Kisses Set, so if you’re looking to try them out, give them as gifts, etc, head on over to the website and use the code: TAKE20 to receive a discount.
