As I’ve gotten wiser (read: older), I’ve gotten savvier with my timing and my choices for cosmetic purchases. I am choosier when it comes to what I put on my skin (and in my body), and opt for big sales to stock up on everyday must-haves (as well as a few splurges too).
One of the biggest annual Sephora sale is upon us, so here are what products made it onto my must-try list, as well as everything you need to know.
- Rouge members will be getting 20% off beginning October 30 to November 9
- VIB members will be getting 15% off beginning November 3 to November 9
- Insider members are getting 10% off beginning November 5 to November 9.
The code to get these goodies at a discount is HOLIDAYFUN.
Full disclosure: I’ve yet to try Olaplex anything, though it’s been on my radar for some time now as word-of-mouth testimonials reached me hard and fast. I was waiting for a sale, and this is it! Bonus: I get to try an entire fleet of their products.
Drunk Elephant devotees swear by this line’s simplicity. When it comes to skincare, I do overwhelmingly gravitate towards the “Clean at Sephora” stamps.
I’ve used Fresh’s rose water mist, and loved it as my daily morning ritual, leaving my skin feeling supple and hydrated, so I have high hopes for the Deep Hydration Facial Toner and face cream.
OK, so this one is definitely a splurge, but for the price you get to have some extravagance by offering your pout a bit of obtainable luxury. While rich reds aren’t my daily go-to’s (I tend to opt for a more minimalst “no-make makeup look”), I do love putting it on for special occasions and as a way to feel fancy.
As for the lips, so for the eyes…These rich jewel tones add depth and warmth, as well as a sense of occasion for the season.
