The Sephora Summer Splurge Points Event is On Now

Hi beauties,

 

It is come to my attention that not everyone realizes it is the summer points event at Sephora! This means that from now until August 19th for VIB Rouge you get 4x the points on all purchases, VIB’s get 3x the points and BI members get 2x the points. Β If you’re needing to stock up on anything, this is a great time. Sephora is also updating the rewards boutique daily with new things to redeem. Marketing ploy to get us to spend more money for bonus points? Definitely. Is it working? Yup.

Even though it may be annoying, I highly recommend signing up for Sephora emails because they always send me codes for gifts with purchase! I literally only order things ever if there is a good code to use. Couple that with your bonus sale points AND using Ebates to shop online, you’ve got a cocktail of freebies for this sale. Today’s code was “VIBLONDON” to celebrate the launch of Jo Malone, and you could choose from three deluxe samples.

Happy Shopping.

CURRENTLY COVETING: Hourglass Confession Ultra Slim High Intensity Lipstick + Swatches

Hi beauties!

 

How is everyone’s summer?? I’ve been taking taking a break from blogging and buying makeup in general the last few months.Β Well enough of that!! I was browsing Sephora and saw that Hourglass came out with these sexy AF gold slim lipsticks- “Confession Ultra Slim High Intensity Refillable Lipstick” if you want to be specific. This packaging is INSANE. It’s like a chic-er more usable version of the Christian Louboutin dagger lipsticks.

These beautiful things are available in 32 shades for $34US or $42CAD for the lipstick + gold case or $22US/$28CAD for the refill only, which can be used on its own- it’s just a the black part of the tube with a cap. Bonus- Hourglass is cruelty free!

This lipstick promises a satin long wear finish and truly is the ultimate accessory for your purse. I must say though, volume-wise the company is making a ton of money- they only contain 0.9grams of product. A MAC lipstick contains 3 grams of product for comparison, however I don’t recall a time where I’ve ever completely finished a MAC lipstick probably because I have too many.

The swatches are honestly some of the most beautiful lipstick swatches I’ve seen in a while. Hourglass is clearly appealing to the everyday woman- no obnoxious neons here, just purely elegant nudes, reds and plums. I’m loving it. I’ve got the shade “I Lust For” in the mail now!

 

What do you guys think? Will you be purchasing these?
