As promised in my “Don’t Fall Into The Trap” post, I am back with what is on my Sephora VIB Appreciation Sale Wishlist. I’m forewarning you: this list basically has one or two products in each category. I am approaching this sale with caution and a firm grasp on reality.
Lately, I have really been into the “perfect for every occasion” kinds of palettes, and the two that I’ve really been considering lately are the Urban Decay Born to Run palette (of course) and the Tarte Love, Trust & Fairy Dust. I think that I’ll just get the Urban decay since it has more options, and is really giving my fall vibes, but I like that the Tarte palette is smaller and more travel bag friendly.
To be quite honest, skincare is something I’ve been absolutely obsessing about recently. So, there are a ton of products that I want to try. Unfortunately for me, skincare tends to be much more expensive that most makeup. On my list of must-haves are a gentle cleanser for days when I don’t want to use my salicylic acid-containing cleaner; facial oil or heavier moisturizer (I currently alternate between the Tatcha Water Cream & Belif Pore Cleanser) since the weather is about to get much cooler and drier; an under eye cream to stop those fine lines before they start settling in; and a new serum since I just finished up my Drunk Elephant C Firma.
In order to satisfy all those needs, while not breaking the bank and also not wasting a ton of money on full-sized products that I may end up not liking, I am planning on picking up the Drunk Elephant The Littles. For under $100, I will get minis of all of the products I need plus a few more. Once I test them out, I can always come back and purchase the full-size at the next VIB Sale.
One other thing that I have really been wanting for a while is the Tatcha The Pearl Tinted Eye Illuminating Treatment. I have been loving wearing minimal makeup these days, and this product works as treatment for fine lines as well as under-eye darkness PLUS it gives enough illumination that I can skip concealer.
Since I have been considering straightening my hair (for the first time in years), I NEED a good heat protectant. Recently I’ve fallen in love with the Briogeo Roscaro Milk Reparative Leave-In Conditioning Spray. It does wonders for my ultra-thick, but highly-porous natural hair and is the first leave-in conditioner that does anything for me. Because of the great results I had with that, I am more eager to try other products in this line. The one I am planning to grab this time is the Don’t Despair, Repair! Strength + Moisture Leave-In Mask. It doesn’t sound like a heat protectant, but along with deeply hydrating and conditioning the hair, this product is supposed to also provide heat protection. I am all about all of those benefits.
That’s it guys. Even this list is a bit longer than I wanted it to be, but realistically, I would probably end up buying all of these within the next month or so. So, it only makes sense that I get them for 20% off while I can.
What are you guys thinking about picking up? Let me know!
Thanks for reading!
