Hello everyone! I am coming back to blogging.
This year at the Sephora sale, I am focusing on items that usually do not go on sale at other times of the year, or restocking items I consistently use. Those are usually the main reasons I buy what I do during sale time.
This year, I also went into the store, so that I could touch and feel and swatch what I was thinking of purchasing. I’m glad I did that, because I changed my mind of some of the things I wanted to purchase.
Here is what I have purchased and what I currently have in my cart, thinking about purchasing before the sale ends:
I purchased the Pat McGrath Mothership V (Bronze Seduction) palette that I have been eyeing for some time. It is stunningly beautiful and swatching it in person made up my mind for me. Here is a picture of a look I created with it. Click on the right arrow to see a photo of the palette itself:
The next thing I purchased is the new Laneige lip glowy balm. I love, love, love their lip sleeping mask. But it comes in a tub, which means either using a brush or sticking your finger in there. I am so glad they came out with a tube. The formula is very similar, smooth, shiny, and hydrating. I got the Berry one, but I am sure they are all great.

I also got the Natasha Denona duo chrome top coat in brown mauve/purple. It is such an interesting and beautiful color shift. I haven’t tried it yet, other than to swatch it in the store, but I will be sure to update this when I do.

I repurchased a moisturizer that I love by Biossance. It’s their Squalane and Omega Repair Cream. I have extremely dry skin and this works well for me. I think it is a little heavy for people with more oily skin, but they make a gel version that might be better for oily skin people.

I bought another shade of the Sephora brand cream lip stain liquid lipsticks. I got the new shade 83 – Cinder Rose. These cream lip stains are great. They are not as drying as many liquid lipstick formulas and they come in over 90 shades!! I highly recommend trying them out, either during the sale, or when you need a new color to try. Because they are so affordable, I recommend trying some colors you might ordinarily shy away from.
