Beauty Buys | Shopping the Sale

I'm sure by now you've heard that Sephora is having their VIB sale starting tomorrow November 6th running through Monday, November 10th! Not only can you take 20% off your entire purchase with no exclusions, but with the giveaway I'm partaking in with a few other blogging ladies - it makes this sale that much better. I've already shared a few perfumes I have my eye on as well as a certain hair care kit from Dry bar. I decided to break it out into three areas - it was really hard to narrow my list down!! 

Face

BareSkin by bareMinerals - I've heard rave reviews about this foundation just not quite sure I need the brush that goes along with it. 
Nars Pressed Setting Powder - This has been on my "want" list for a long time and knowing how well it sets the under eye area I need to just pull the trigger and buy it! 
Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush - I currently have this blush in Glisten and love how long it lasts - really want to get it in "Fearless"
Beauty Blender - Another one that has been on my list for the longest time and after trying a dupe from Wallgreens, I realize why this one is so popular! 
Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Rose - I think this beauty item is a double threat!! I can use it as eye shadow or highlighter! 

Eyes




Sephora Favorites Lash Stash - This is my favorite set that Sephora puts out during the holidays and it's great to stock up on travel size options of all my favorites. I usually keep two in my gym bag and a few in my travel make-up bag! 
Brush Set - I've used the same brushes for a few years now and it's time for a reboot! I currently use Sephora brushes and think the quality is great! 
Clinique Lash Primer - In keeping with the theme of lashes - primer is the best way to fake falsies!! The price point for this one is really great!  
Sephora Smart Liner - I've been experimenting with cat eyes recently and before I invest in a higher end liner, like Benefits Push-up liner, I wanted to try this one out. 
Eye Look Book Set - I've actually already purchased this and think 4 palettes with 5 colors in each at $29 is an incredible deal!! 

Lips

Bite Beauty High Pigment Pencil - I already have this in the color Pomegranate (the red lip I sported in my weekending post) but really want this in "Peachy Pink." It's extremely moisturizing and doesn't dry my lips out. 
Fresh Sugar Kissing Trio - I love Fresh lip products and these are my favorite chap sticks, if you will! Some colors are more pigmented then others and this mini trio is cheaper than one alone! 

I'm not going to be purchasing all these goodies at once, but a few of these items are already in my shopping cart waiting to be bought! 

Are you going to be shopping the sale? Have you  used any of the products I have my eye on?

  4. So much goodness! I love my Shimmer Brick and Beauty Blender (for concealer). I really want to try some of the Bite products too.

  5. The Fresh set is definitely on my list too! I had been planning on purchasing some Drybar products but then yesterday I turned the corner and saw that a new Drybar is opening literally around the block from my apartment...so I have a feeling I'll be getting plenty of use of their products without buying any new ones, haha!

  6. Is it bad that I didn't know there was a sephora sale?! I am so behind on the beauty times! I really want to try that make up ball thing and I really want those sugar lip balms to fuel my chapstick obsession!

  10. This sale is like Christmas to me! Can it be tomorrow yet?! Great picks! I have the beauty blender (or did, until Greyson ran off with it. Add a new one to my list) and the shimmer break. I LOVE both! I tried the Bare Minerals foundation but it wasn't great with my super dry skin unfortch. Can't wait to see what you get!

    ReplyDelete
  11. All great picks! I think I'm going to use the sale as an opportunity to stock up on a few must-haves that I'm running close to empty on - otherwise, I'm sending a few things my husband's way so he can Christmas shop!

  14. Love, love love that blush, it's one of my favorites! And I'd love to get my hands on that Sugar lip set!

  15. Ahh this is totally making me want to go on a Sephora shopping spree! Bobbi Brown shimmer bricks are my absolute favorite and they totally are multi-taskers, so how can you not buy it?! I'm also a huge Nars fan, but I've never tried that setting powder, but I may just need to pull the trigger also. Great list! xoxo

  16. Can't wait to shop the sale! Definitely going to stock up on some regulars.

  21. I so want that lip pencil in pomegranate now- loved that lip color from your pictures! I'm still trying to decide on a foundation at the last minute since none of the samples I've had, have worked for me. Love all of these picks though- I always get sucked into the gift sets!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Ohhh, I have heard that without question, you need the brush to go along with the foundation. I guess it makes all the difference. That's what has deterred me from buying it so far - it's like, dang, you want HOW much for the foundation, and I have to get this $$ brush, too?!

    If you have a minute, stop by my blog to see a fun Insta linky I'm co-hosting! It also has an awesome giveaway :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. Love all of your picks! I use that NARS light reflecting setting powder every day and I love it. I would suggest getting a powder puff because it will last longer. I have had my compact since February. I would love to try that Lash Stash and those lip products. I hope that you are having a great day so far!! :-)

  24. Great picks!! Love love my beauty blender.

  25. I finished my bare minerals naked and I think it's going to be my summer foundation! I am trying to use the rest of what I have which is random stuff. lol

  26. shut up, a sale! i didn't need to know this ha. but you sold me with that mascara set and anything fresh. their lip stuff is to die

  27. I really want to try that foundation but having to buy that and the brush that goes with it is kind of a turnoff. You should definitely get yourself that Drybar kit - it's still expensive but 20% off is an awesome deal!

    ReplyDelete
  28. You can't go wrong with a Shimmer Brick. They seriously last FOREVER! I went to get that foundation and the girl at the store talked me out of it. She said anyone that has even slightly oily skin will hate it.

  29. I had absolutely no idea about this sale but now I know what I'm going to do tomorrow. I was also unaware that Tarte makes things other than mascara with amazonian clay. That mascara is amazing so I'm definitely going to have to check out this blush!

    ReplyDelete
  30. I love the Fresh Sugar Lips! That Lash Stash set looks great. I use quite a few of those products. I really want the Eye Look Book set too! This is such a great list. :)

  31. I just bought a TON of goodies from Sephora! I love Bare Minerals powder, but am scared to try the liquid for fear of breaking out.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Love all of these picks!! I want to try one of the Bite lip pencils- I love their products. So glad I'm a VIB this year :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. I can't wait to get a few goodies during the sale! Some of the drybar dry shampoo and some Fresh products are on my list!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Ahhh my favorite time of year at Sephora! I absolutely love NARS Albatross, so I'm sure you'll love the setting powder. I say go for it and the DryBar hair care kit, their Triple Sec dry shampoo is amazing ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  35. I can't pass up a trip to sephora when they are offering discounts! I highly recommend that tarte blush. I own it and am obsessed with it.

    ReplyDelete
  36. love all your pics. the nordstrom powder is pretty!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I could live in a store like Sephora! I'm such a beauty product junkie! Don't even get me started on the samples they have on the line to the register!! I love all Fresh products and I'm such a chapstick addict, this would be the perfect Christmas gift! I've heard rave reviews about bare minerals and now that it's practically winter, I need more coverage than just the tinted moisturizer I've been using. I'd be curious to test this foundation out. Great picks!

  38. i've got demos and reviews of everything in that top set, if you ever need them! i'm on shopping ban but might have to break it for the sale, hehe

    ReplyDelete
  39. Love your list! I need to get on creating mine, otherwise I will just run in and buy way too many things! I am dying to get one of those shimmer bricks!

    ReplyDelete
  40. I had no idea about the Sephora sale until everyone blogged about it today, so now I'm going to be in trouble!! The first time I tried the bareskin I didn't like it, but then I tried it again and liked it a lot better. A little goes a long way, so make sure to use a tiny bit. I've had the beauty blender on my list too and I've always eyed that lash stash package when it comes out!

    ReplyDelete
  41. I haven't been to sephora in forever!! I need to go check this out!

    ReplyDelete
  42. I'm getting a Naked Basics palette and the bite lip thing you have up there, not sure what color but possibly the same? I need to refer to my wish list to see what else I'll be on the prowl for. Can't argue with an extra 20%.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Ok so I was actually looking into the Beauty Blender - what exactly does it to besides being a regular make up sponge? I usually apply foundation using my finger and blush with a brush but that's pretty much it. How was your experience?

  44. I bought a bootleg beauty blender too and I like the one I have but I think I need to try the real thing. I just can't rationalize spending $20 or a piece of foam!!! I'm loving all of these choices. I'm off today and will be heading to the mall in a few! Going to make Sephora one of my stops!

  45. I so want to try the beauty blender, everyone raves about it! I love the colors of the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick, so pretty!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Ahhhhhh I want all of these things! Darn you Sephora!!! I love the beauty blender and have raved about it on my blog a few times now. I highly recommend it! I thought I wanted the Bare Minerals foundation but was underwhelmed when I tried it. I ended up coming home with the UD Naked one instead. I really love Bobbi Brown! And I have been dying for the sugar lip stuff forever!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Bareminerals has a foundation? I need to try it - everything breaks my skin out.

  49. Aaah stoppppp. I need new foundation soon. Does that break No Spend November?? (Yes because I reread my rules daily. Sigh).

    ReplyDelete
  50. I never shop at sephora because it overwhelms me so much, but I am thinking I might maybe buy something for the sale - why not, right? i want to try the benefits they're real, but after that i'm stumped on what else to try. i don't really 'need' anything else... oh but i bought my bestie the beauty blender for her birthday and she is pretty makeup savvy (every time i look pretty on my blog, she has done my makeup and hair) and she LOVES it. like obsessively. I am not sure I would use it though, I like my hands - but I don't use proper foundation. I'm going to stop rambling now.

  51. I cannot WAIT for the sale! I might even stay up late tonight to get first dibs :)

  52. I really need to buy stuff for OTHERS for Christmas. Why do I always find stuff for Myself??!!

    ReplyDelete
  53. I love that eye shadow and I love love love my beauty blender! Make sure you wet it first! There are tons of youtube videos that show how to use it. I tried the Bare Minerals Foundation and I wanted to like it but it is SUPER full coverage. I tried it in the store with the brush and did the whole swirling thing and it was ridiculous how thick it felt and looked. No bueno. I am interested in hearing your take on it.

    ReplyDelete
  54. I am trying to stay far, far away from this sale but you guys are making it sooo hard! I want everything!! Can't wait to see what you pick up :)

    ReplyDelete
  55. Oh my gosh look at all those awesome products! I've heard a few bloggers talk about the beauty blender so I may be convinced I need it. I just use my fingers now. Love Fresh Sugar products and Nars and bareMinerals...I love it all! I better stay away from Sephora, eek!

    ReplyDelete
  56. I want it all, lol! Looks like those Bobbi Brown eye shadow bricks are really popular!
