My EPIC 2015 Sephora VIB sale & holiday recommendations list | Weekend hauling

Saturday, November 7, 2015

If you’ve been living under a rock recently, have I ever got a surprise for you: it’s the Sephora annual holiday sale again, and that sale starts with 20% off your entire order for all VIB Rouge members.

I’ve broken down my top picks into three simple categories: things I bought, things I want, and things that would make super badass Christmas gifts!

Not a VIB Rouge? Try these other weekend sales! 25% off at Jurlique until the 12th, L’Occitane pre-holiday sale, $10 off at DHC on all orders over $40!

What I picked up (and you totally should, too!)

  • B. Balenciaga ($20 USD on sale), whose fleeting celery top notes I completely fell in love with this summer (I was a good girl and only picked up the rollerball), and
  • The much-loved Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer ($38.40 USD on sale), which I’ve been mixing with my moisturizers and serums to make just the most gorgeous tinted moisturizers in the morning. My current favourite blend? Sensual Skin Enhancer in SX02 + Hylamide SubQ Serum ($38 CAD) + Embryolisse Lait-Creme Concentré ($12.80 USD on sale), for a fuller finish that I can get throw on and head out the door with.

Perfumed objects & pretty lipsticks | New 27/09/15

Objects of pleasure

And then there’s the Hermès Rêverie collection. I’ve been noticing more and more brands offering perfumed objects recently, from Lisa Hoffman’s Fragrance Earrings to the Frederic Malle Rubber Incense strips, and Hermès is the latest to jump on the trend.

This fall, the brand is offering ceramic pebbles & paper origami horses, pre-perfumed with scents inspired by perfumer Céline Ellena’s daydreams. (Yes, that Céline Ellena — as in perfume royalty; the Different Company; daughter of Hermès’ in-house perfumer, Jean-Claude Ellena.) The origami horses, for all of you perfume nerds out there, are actually far more affordable than I had expected: $79 USD for a set of four.

Feather eyeliners, New Dimensions, and eye palettes galore | New 03/08/15

Monday, August 3, 2015

New this week: leather-feather-tipped Stila eyeliner brushes (so lovely, but weirdly expensive for just a liner brush, no?), matte pastel finishing powders, and New Dimension lifting products (but more on that soon).

And that new NARS NARSissist palette and Sephora brushes — mmpfh. Five kinds of oh-so-pretty!

Besame Boudoir brushes, Formula X Infinite Ombré, and more | New 01/06/15

Monday, June 1, 2015

Can you believe that it’s already June?! Because dude, I cannot. It is way too soon for this, and I am not ready.

In other news, though, here’s what’s new this month at Nordstrom and Sephora! Sephora has actually done a great job of picking up niche beauty brands again this year, which is really exciting — I feel like they were definitely moving away from that for a long while, but with weird new products like that Eborian Pâte au Ginseng mask, those Besamé Boudoir brushes, and the Make Up Eraser (I’m dying to know if that works), they’re definitely branching out into niche finds again.

I also have my eye on the Formula X Infinite Ombré Nail Design Set, which makes me think of the new OPI Color Paints. It doesn’t look like much at first glance, but some of the looks Sephora has up on their Beauty Board make it look really cool.

Sephora sale, Commodity perfumes, & niche skincare innovations | New 17/04/15

Friday, April 17, 2015

I was browsing the Sephora app from my bed the other day (dangerous, I know) and there were SO MANY cool new things that I absolutely had to put together a fresh New This Week post for you guys.

“Products like what,” you ask? Like the Bite Beauty Watercolor Lip Gloss Library ($49 USD), which features five absolutely beautiful pastel lipglosses and seven pretty (and entirely wearable) shades. Or products like the new Clinique Cheek Pop Blushes ($21 USD) — I want Heather Pop so bad. Or the AERIN and Commodity perfumes that are now available on the Sephora site. (I need AERIN Lilac Path and Waterlily Sun in my life, like, yesterday. They’re amazing.)

But most importantly, I wanted to share these product launches with you guys today because (!!!) Sephora is currently running their Beauty Insider Spring Salewhich is 10% off for BIs until the 20th and 15% off for VIBs and VIB Rouges until the 21st!
