Some things to consider during the Sephora sale
Will we ever go to bars again??
An update since my last newsletter, which included “coronaBUYrus” in the title: I got the damn virus (I’m fine now). The great thing about being very sick for two weeks is that I didn’t buy a damn thing. I want to hear what YOU bought though. Pls reply and tell me, let me live through you.
This send is dedicated to the Sephora sale, in which you get 20%, 15% or 10% off everything depending on your membership status. Here are my picks!
Aquis Hair Towel
This is a great time to take a break from heat styling your hair. The Aquis hair turban (or towel, if you have very long hair) will help you air dry without looking insane. I have A LOT of hair that takes forever to dry, and this thing cuts the drying time down significantly, and makes my hair dry smoother and less frizzy.
Shu Uemura Hair Oil
Not to be dramatic but I can’t live without this hair oil. I use one pump daily, sometimes more as an overnight treatment. It smells AMAZING and is worth every penny full price. Not buying it while it’s on sale is honestly criminal.
For those of you (me) who insist on frying the shit out of your hair so you can be blonde, stock up on Olaplex while its on sale. Sephora recently added a new decently priced “value size” that becomes an even better deal after your VIB discount.
Glow Recipe Set
I LOVE a set. This set includes a full sized sleeping mask (the best I’ve used!) and a moisturizer.
Laneige Lip Mask
Buy this with the discount. It’s great and the tub lasts forever. It’s worth it I promise.
Kiehls Brightening Mask
I love this mask!! I got it in a mask set last year and the small sample tub has given me several full-face applications.
Fresh Rose Mask
This mask is kinda goopy in consistency, but it smells nice and is super soothing and hydrating. I like to use it after exfoliating. It’s also in this set, if you want to try other Fresh stuff.
SK-II Essence Set
Sets are probably the best thing you can buy during the Sephora sale. If you’ve been hearing all the hype about SK-II essence, now’s the time to try but only if you’re VIB Rouge and get 20% off. The set includes a full size essence, small toner and the best sheet mask you will ever use. You will cry at how much the sheet masks cost on their own.
Ole Henriksen Banana Bright Eye Cream
Great, brightening and hydrating eye cream. The tub seems small but it lasts a long time. A little goes a long way!
Super Goop Oil Sunscreen
This is hands down the best sunscreen I’ve ever used. It smells great, spreads really easy and makes me GLOW.
Face Mask Applicator
I love face masks but I hate sticking my fingers in the face mask tubs. This little spatula is perfect!
Kaja Catnap Eye Brightener
The Kaja Catnap is a very light under eye brightener that I use almost every day. Or at least I used to, when I was allowed to leave the apartment….
Fenty Gloss Bomb
If you don’t already own a Fenty Gloss Bomb what are you even doing with your life??
Fenty Lip Paint in RED
I have this in 3 colors but the red is my favorite. It’s my favorite lipstick period. If you’ve ever seen me wear red lipstick there’s a 90% chance its this one. I often refer people to this video of Rihanna applying it on herself if they’re not sold on this product. I personally am responsible for half the views on this video.
Tweezerman Eyelash Curler
When’s the last time you replaced your eyelash curler? It’s time.
What I didn’t buy
These rainbow sandals (I LOVE THEM!!!)
This slip dress that I saw on someone on Instagram and became obsessed with for 24 hours.
Not a SINGLE thing from the Rachel Comey sample sale (this was hard)
I told myself I’m allowed to have these sunglasses “when this is over”
