Hey Guys & Dolls! I received this coupon in a email blast from Sephora this week. I wanted to spread the word, and also get some feedback, since I’m thinking of taking them up on this offer myself. I don’t want to go hog-wild, but I think I may spend about $120 ish. Here’s a list of things I’m thinking of getting:
Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette $50
In truth, I mostly want this for tutorials, since I’m sure I have very similar shadows, and in fact have some of these already, though I am attracted to the taupe-mushroom look of many of them. So the question is, how interested are you in this palette yourselves? Should I just keeping working with the Naked 1 palette/other neutral palettes, or do a lot of you have this/plan on buying it? While we’re discussing Urban Decay have you heard they reformulated their regular eyeshadows? What do you think of the new palette system?
MUFE Mat Velvet+ $34
As many of you know, I’m a HUGE fan of MUFE HD foundation. However, on a hot & sweaty day, it’s not my most reliable foundation. MAC Pro Longwear has wonderful staying power, but it’s just a bit too yellow and a touch too dark for my skin. This foundation is said to be water resistant, so one would assume it’s long lasting, and many beauty gurus rave about it. I tried this a few years back in Alabaster, and it was much too light & too pink, so I’m thinking of trying No. 20 Ivory. Anyone wear 115 and have any insight as to this foundation?
MUFE Face & Body $38
I remember when I worked at Sephora the MUFE trainer RAVED about this, and to hear many people tell it this is a fab-u-lous sheer foundation. I’m imagining this to be a version of a tinted moisturizer, minus the sunscreen. Thoughts? I think I’ll have to test this one in person before I can take the plunge.
Kate Sommerville SPF 55 Serum Sunscreen $45
Though I really love my CeraVe AM Spf 30 moisturizer in the drier months, last year it was just a little too slick for those hotter, oilier months of summer, so I need a great lightweight sunscreen for spring & summer. It seems like my search for the perfect product in never ending, and at this point, I’m willing to spend a little more for a better texture/appearance. This doesn’t have Zinc or Titanium Dioxide (physical Sunscreen) which I normally prefer, but I’m willing to try something new. Have any of you tried this? Help!
I also looked at 2 retinol serums, one from Peter Tomas Roth & one from Kate Sommerville, but I think I can find dupes from Paula’s Choice at about half-cost.
Beyond that I’m open to suggestions! Are there any beauty gems that I’ve been passing up at Sephora?
Thanks for shopping with me ^_^
