SEPHORA SPRING 2018 VIB SALE WISH LIST AND RECOMMENDATIONS

Bonjour,

 

The Sephora Spring 2018 VIB Sale is almost upon us! I always love to make wish lists and read other people’s wish lists for inspiration. If you haven’t gotten the details of the sale yet, read them all in my latest post.

Yes, 15% off is kind of laughable in the realm of ‘sales’, but I have a lot of stuff I need to stock up on and I’d rather save SOME money than no money. I generally prefer shopping Sephora online because the stores are so busy and the sales people stress me out. I feel like I always fall for the impulse purchases while you’re waiting to pay! Don’t forget that when you shop online, you can always use Ebates when you place your order as well to save even more money.

MY SPRING 2018 VIB SALE WISH LIST:

My wish list is composed mostly of things I’ve never tried before, or need to stock up on.

PHOTOS ARE ALL FROM SEPHORA.COM. PRICES ALL IN CANADIAN DOLLARS.

Laura Mercier Flawless Fusion Ultra-Longwear Foundation $59CAD

I’ve seen such great reviews for this and am looking for a good med-full coverage foundation. I love my Candleglow Foundation from the line but find it a little too sheer for full-glam nights.

Laura Mercier Flawless Fusion Ultra-Longwear Concealer $36

Why not get the concealer too?? I’ve heard good things.

Nars Radiant Longwear Foundation $60

I love Nars but have heard so many mixed reviews of their foundations, until now. This one is definitely on my radar, and I’m not a one-size-fits-all foundation kind of girl. I like different products for different days and moods.

Nars Creamy Radiant Concealer $37

Love this concealer so much and they keep adding more shades!! Hate the price, but I can’t do without.

ABH Soft Glam Palette $55

I honestly wasn’t going to get this because I have so much ABH eyeshadow already, but I tried a friend’s palette on the weekend and couldn’t believe how gorgeous it was! The shadows are way easier to work with than the Prism palette and the shades are so wearable.

Fresh Rose Deep Hydration Floral Toner $54

It is literally criminal to charge so much for a toner but it’s gotten such praise I just might have to splurge.

Fresh Rose Hydrating Gel Eye Cream $52

I got a sample of this and loved it a lot so it’s definitely on my list.

Caudalie Vinosource Moisturizing Sorbet $48

This is the most satisfying moisturizer to apply. It’s whipped, it smells nice, it’s natural, it’s in a pink tube- what more could you want?

Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir Major Last Mascara $33

I usually don’t splurge on designer mascara but this is a must. I’m obsessed and need a new one.

YSL Vinyl Couture Mascara $39

This is so insanely expensive but I got a trial size of this and have never been able to stop thinking about it! These were initially a limited edition mascara but YSL brought them back permanent. This does wonders for your lower lashes and it has a weird makeup smell that I oddly love.

Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzer $38

I owned a small size of this from a holiday set and have always wanted to buy the full size! Now that they’ve repackaged it and it’s even cuter I might just have to go for it.

MY RECOMMENDATIONS:

My recommendations are things I own and love but don’t need to stock up on.

Anastasia Beverly Hills x Amrezy Highlighter $36

This highlighter is so so so so so so gorg. See my full review here.

Biotherm Aquasource Cocoon $52

I adore the Biotherm Aquasource Line but it’s so overlooked. If you’re looking for an amazingly rich but gel-like moisturizer for dry/sensitive skin, the Aquasource range is amazing- especially the ‘cocoon’ line.

Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Lipstick $26

I used to think Kat Von D and Too Faced made the best liquid lips, but I’ve been obsessed with these lately and actually love the more liquid formula because it is so comfortable to wear for 8+ hours. Not to mention there are a gazillion nude shades to choose from! Win. See my review here!

Hourglass Confession Slim High Intensity Refillable Lipstick $42

These are so freaking gorgeous, from the packaging to the colours and formulation. If you don’t own at least one, you’re missing out! See my complete review here.

Caudalie Beauty Elixir $22-$59

This is probably one of my most talked about holy grail luxury face products. If you haven’t tried it yet, you better.

Anything from Jo Malone!!! $52-$175ish

Sephora recently started carrying Jo Malone online. Their scents are intoxicating but they never go on sale. ‘Nectarine and Honey Blossom’ is one of my favourites.

Sunday Riley ‘Luna’ Sleeping Night Oil $70-$135

I’m in love with this oil and still need to write a full review. Long story short I always wake up with the softest skin and this has seriously helped with the chronic dry patches I was battling for the last 10 years.

 

There we have it lovelies! Have you tried any of these products?? What’s on your wishlist??

  1. Is the Nars concealer worth the price tag?! I know so many people who love it but have always wondered if it’s really worth it or if my Maybelline Fit Me will suffice..

    1. It is!! I use both the Nars and the Maybelline Fit Me actually. The Maybelline is kind of a dupe but it doesn’t have the coverage like Nars and doesn’t set as well under the eyes as Nars. I often use Nars under my eyes and then Maybelline on certain areas of the face I want to brighten. xo

  2. I bought that Nars foundation a few months back and I LOVE IT. I have dry skin and it sits so beautifully. Loved your list, I also haven’t felt drawn to the Soft Glam palette but I may have to see it in person!
