Sephora Insider Shopping Event

Follow my blog with Bloglovin – Just wanting to formally claim my blog! 🙂

Time for Sephora’s Spring sale! While it’s not as much of a discount as the Fall sale, it’s still worth picking up some things. Here’s my wish list.

Drybar Prep Rally Prime & Prep Detangler – I tried a sample and really liked how it helped me get a second day out of my hair. The smell is not great but it dissipates pretty quickly.

Sunday Riley Power Couple Duo: Total Transformation Kit – I really liked the small sample I tried of Good Genes and I’m really interested in coupling it with the Luna Sleeping Night Oil. Is this stuff overpriced? Yes. But I started seeing results and really want to give it a longer trial period.

Shiseido Facial Cotton – These are such a splurge but I just can’t quit them. They are soooooo soft but yet don’t fall apart. Everything else feels like sandpaper compared. These are definitely best in slot for me.

Urban Decay Finger Brush – If you’ve read my past posts, I’m a huge fan of UD’s brushes. I need a short, dense, not overly soft brush and I’m hoping this one fits the bill. Specifically I hope it makes Tarte’s Make Believe in Yourself Palette usable because it is really finicky.

Sephora Collection Crystal Nail File – I LOVE this file and I want to stock up on a few extras! It’s a best in slot for sure. They aren’t rough, they don’t make your nails ragged and I’ve even smoothed down a callous on my foot with one. These are especially fab if you have acrylic nails because they let you buff out the growth without tearing up your skin. Even my husband thinks it’s magic.

Sephora Collection The Pointer Blending Sponges – Hoping these might help me get a better application for my under eye concealer. So far my beauty blender isn’t cutting it.

Tarte No Shower Happy Hour – I’m a sucker for a kit. My sister has raved about the Hair Goals Dry Shampoo but I want to trial it before committing to the large size since I’m sensitive to the overpowering fragrances most dry shampoos have. The rest of the goodies in the kit sound fun too!

I also want to pick up a liquid foundation to add into my rotation but I haven’t decided which one to buy. My skin has been crazy dry and my usual go-to powder foundations are just accentuating the dryness.

What are your must-haves for the sale?

Best in Slot: Urban Decay Good Karma Brushes

Urban Decay’s Optical Blurring Brush has been one of my best in slot loves for ages. I love it so much that I have three. I use one for my pressed powder foundation, one for liquid foundation or foundation primer, and one for my loose powder. This brush performs aces in all three of those specs. So why am I on about this brush today? Well, Urban Decay has all their Good Karma line on deep discount on their website.

I can only assume that UD plans to discontinue these brushes in favor of their UD Pro line which has many of the same types of brushes, including the Optical Blurring Brush. But since they may be somewhat similar I’d say take advantage of the sale prices and go with the Good Karma ones for now because they are superb.

I rounded out my collection with a few more styles and I love every last one of them. Amazing what having a good weapon in your arsenal can do for makeup application. Even the lackluster drugstore palette I picked up recently applies better with these brushes. I know there are a myriad of great brushes out there but UD Good Karma Brushes are my pick for best in slot.
