So I’m going to preface this by saying that our expense have been cut way down over the past few weeks. Essentially, we spend $$$ on food and that’s it. I don’t see the point in going into the ‘sale’ rabbit hole until we know when this is all going to be “over.”
The Sephora sale is a bit different in my book. Skincare is a huge priority for me…quarantine or not, and a lot of the products I use are pretty pricey, so an extra 20% off is VERY helpful. And I’m not going to lie, I added in a few non-skincare things in the bag because…why not? In my defense, makeup that performs like skincare is so intriguing to me…
With that, here are my picks…
Drunk Elephant Lala Retro Whipped Moisturizer – IMO, this is the holy grail of moisturizers. It’s not greasy, it’s light, and helps balance my skin perfectly.
Drunk Elephant B-Hydra Intensive Hydration Serum – If you’re looking for that extra bit of hydration, especially during drier months, this is the serum you need. It also supposedly helps other DE serums perform better.
Drunk Elephant Virgin Marula Oil – This is one of my top 3 favorite DE products. It’s such a luxurious oil that absorbs beautifully into your skin for that perfect level of moisture. I never thought an oil would be a part of my skincare routine, but I was wrong. This is essential!
If you want to read more about my thoughts on other DE products, check out these posts – daytime and nighttime routine and retinol.
Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask – So I still love my DE chap stick, but I’ve heard such good things about this lip mask that I have to try it out. I will report back ASAP.
Tatcha The Liquid Skin Canvas Primer – Ok, so I know this is pricey for not being skincare, BUT I’ve been looking for a good clean primer for some time now and thought I would bite the bullet with the sale. Even though I hardly wear a full face of make up anymore, I want more staying power. Regardless of what I wear, I definitely get that spotty, end of the day look whenever I do. I want to see if this helps with that. And the Tatcha brand is well known for being good for your skin. Will report back!
Kosas Tinted Face Oil Foundation – This was not a planned purchase, but after seeing a few people on IG talk about this as a must have, I had to try it. I love that this is makeup that serves as skincare, and the concept sounds so cool. I’m really trying to let me imperfect skin shine through, so anything full coverage is a no go for me. I’m not quite sure how well this will work with my skin type and texture, so will share more after I try it out a few times.
bareMinerals BARESKIN Complete Coverage Serum Concealer – I’ve been searching for the perfect concealer that I can use for those no foundation days, and I’m not quite sure if this is the one, but I’m going to give it a try. Hopefully, it works out!
NUDESTIX Blend and Buff Brush – I’ve been searching for a good concealer brush to help me apply concealer on the face. This brush caught my eye because it has a foundation side and a concealer side – 2 for one?! Again, we shall see how it works out!
ANNNND that’s it in terms of what I ordered. I was going to share other picks I would’ve gotten were we not in quarantine but decided not to because there’s no way I can share my actual thoughts on them at a later time (because I won’t actually use them).
Let me know if you have any questions! I love everything skincare and makeup :).
