It has been 4-5 months since I made an appearance here! Everything has been so busy that I had to take a break from something and, well, I do this for fun so it had to go on hold! I have a day job that keeps me busier than I could imagine and has been extra intense the last 6 months plus other standard life things so it's good to be back.
It's been really hard to grow this organically and I hope to one day make this bigger, but in the meantime, I'll have to do what I can. That said, all is good and it's the semi-annual Sephora sale!!!
Here's the scoop, Rouge members get 20% off with "HEYROUGE" while VIB members get 15% off with "HEYVIB" and Insiders get 10% off with "HEYINSIDER" until 5/06. This only happens every six months so I like to stock up. I'm sharing what I bought this time and some other favorite things that are part of the sale (everything is part of the sale thatchy sell to my knowledge).
WHAT I BOUGHT:
Farmacy Lip Balm - have never tried this but wanted a cleaner option
Drunk Elephant Serum - I use this nightly and love it directly after cleansing
Nars Concealer - I use this for covering any blemishes if I have them! (not for under eyes)
Lip Plumping Gloss - have never tried this but saw someone else recommend it
Aluminum-free Deodorant - been using this for a year now and love it more than others
Charcoal Dry Shampoo - This is the best dry shampoo I've ever used - 5 day hair, y'all
Makeup Eraser - have never tried this but it's better than using cloth wipes & tossing em
Poly-peptide Moisturizer - I love this DE moisturizer and it's a repeat buy
Drunk Elephant Travel Face Cleansing Bars - one is moisturizing and one is exfoliating!
Large Drunk Elephant Cleansing Bar- this is the bigger version of the travels & my fave
Herbivore Bath Soak - never tried this but was in need of new bath products
Mascara - my absolute favorite mascara - I've tried so many but this always wins
Herbivore Bath Salts - never tried this but was in need of new bath products
Brow Pencil - this is a repeat buy too - it just works well
Drunk Elephant Makeup Removing Balm - they just came out with this & I love a balm
Rose Lip Balm - this is a repeat buy I like but I wish was cleaner
It seems like a lot and honestly- it is! But why not stock up and try new things when they're 20% off, so it's only logical, right?
WHAT I LOVE:
Self Tanner - my hands down favorite for a good tan
CC Cream - I wish this was clean but it's not and I still wear it once a week
Dyson Blow Dryer - I really do think that investment was worth it!
Overnight Lip Mask - I tried a sample this to replace Lanaige since this is cleaner
Drunk Elephant Eye Cream - I really like this but think I just need filler at this point
Liquid Liner - There are plenty I haven't tried but I do like this
Brow Gel - I love that this superglues them in place
Happy shopping, y'all!
