On Monday I got my Sephora Order. I had gotten a gift certificate and then Sephora had their VIB coupon for $15 off and free shipping (good only thru Dec 10th) so I HAD to pick some items up :)
First I got the Guerlain Precious Lights Radiance Essentials Set:
It has a full size of their Light Rejuvenating Illuminator "Precious Light Rejuvenating Illuminator hides all imperfections and brightens the complexion with a single click. Along with Gold Radiance Pigment to tone down the appearance of wrinkles, pores, and pigment irregularities, it also reflects light to create radiance. Meanwhile, a blend of myrrh oil, known for its regenerating properties and lifting and soothing peptides, creates smoother and softer skin." It's much like YSL Touche Eclat, but I think a bit smoother. A deluxe sample of their Light Diffusing Perfecting Primer (which is $70 for the regular size) and my favorite the Meteorites Pearls!
The effect you get from the pearls is really hard to describe - I tried to photograph it but my vein-y hand doesn't help!
At first it looks sparkly but blended in (hand or right) it smooths and just makes the skin look light from within. I'll have to a before and after face look to really show it.
I also got 2 items from Caudalie:
The Cleansing Water "A soap-free, three-in-one cleanser, makeup remover, and toner for face and eyes that's perfect for all skin types - even the most sensitive." I use it like a toner, I really think you need to wash your face especially if you have the amount of product and sunscreen on that I usually wear, but this helps prep the face very well for serums or moisturizing at night.
The Lip Conditioner " This 99.5 percent-natural treatment provides a powerful blend of antioxidants and nutrients that protect, hydrate, repair, and soothe dry lips while lending antiaging benefits. It makes an excellent lipstick base." So many good things in one! I haven't tried it yet but I have high hopes!
I also had the code for a free Eyeko Skinny Mini eyeliner in black:
It's not as BLACK as I like my eyeliner to be but the precision is awesome and I can darken it with a black matte shadow (I like to use Lancome's It List).
I also had over 500 beauty insider points and I had been wanting the Porefessional so I got the Benefit "Swag Bag of Sexy":
It has Deluxe Samples of Benefits High Beam, Benetint, and of course the Pore-fessional.
And then I got a few samples:
A trial of Smashbox Primer - good for travel!
And two perfumes I need to try - Acoua di Gioia and Lady Gaga Fame. I love perfume samples because A) I love, love perfume I have over 15 bottles right now... but... B) I need to wear it, to see how it will smell on me. I am one of those people who likes all the perfumes no one else likes when they smell it from the bottle. But once I have it on I always get compliments. I like Florientals - and it seems like the market is moving towards lighter more fruity stuff (and I don't want to smell like Pear Glace) so I am always on the look out for a new scent.
And that's it! With my gift certificate and coupon it only cost me $3.83! Yeah!
