The goodies that I ordered during the Sephora sale arrived right after my bareMinerals haul.
Details about what’s inside:
First up is restocking on a basic: my bareMinerals foundation. This thing is awesome. A “regular” jar costs $27. The jumbo size contains 3x the amount, but for only $32 (after the discount). Plus it comes in this glittery over-the-top packaging. How can you not love that.
I also picked up an Illuminating Mineral Veil but that was for my mom.
I bought two packs of fake lashes. They were $2.70 each.
Finally as my big treat, I bought the Josie Maran Escape to Morocco set. Flashback: I seem to remember that in the late 90’s, all of the computer dudes I knew were so in love with Josie Maran. She seems like a cool lady. This set was a steal at $24 on sale, especially since the argan oil is $14 alone.
It comes with an illuminizer, sheer color stick in Spice, lip gloss in Pink Honey, and a 15 ml bottle of light argan oil, I’ve been wanting to try Josie Maran’s line so I hope I like them. I can’t see myself using that Illuminizer though.
As always with Sephora, I got some samples too. A trio of Stila lipsticks in shades that are a little too dark for me, Jack Black face scrub, Murad wipe, bareMinerals Prime Time foundation primer, and my birthday gift from Benefit.
Benefit is one of my favorite makeup brands and I will certainly miss it in my transition to cleaner makeup. The birthday gift was a little sample of mascara and an extremely tiny “Watt’s Up” highlighter. It’s much more subtle than their High Beam.
I never used illuminators/highlighters and all of a sudden I collected three in one month. By the way, I’ve used the “They’re Real!” mascara twice and it lives up to the name. It also doesn’t smudge.
Between the two hauls, I bought more makeup this month than I’ve bought all year, and it’s probably about as much as other ladies buy in a month. I love to try samples and new products while I’m away on vacation so I packed up a lot of these mini’s to try while I’m away in Idaho and Vegas this week. Peace out!
