Sephora Sale:
In Case You Needed Help Spending More Money...

Sephora Sale is back and I always laugh as I create these posts because essentially, I'm helping you spend even more money than you were going to spend already.  I appreciate you allowing me into your wallet this way + clearly we are closer than close at this point.  I've gone back and forth with whether I should share suggestions OR share what products I have in my own cart.  I decided to just do both PLUS include links to previous Sephora Sale posts I've done.  You will have all types of options to choose from, GOOD LUCK.

What's In My Cart:

DIOR BACKSTAGE FOUNDATION- Don't ask me why I need another foundation, just don't... because I don't have an answer for you.  You might as well be asking me why the sky is blue.  But I have heard nothing but good things about this buildable medium coverage foundation and I feel like I need to add it to my never ending collection of foundations.  Plus it has nearly 5 Stars on Sephora and you guys know how I feel about anything that has nearly 5 Stars on Sephora... it must be hella good!

BOBBI BROWN PRIMER PLUS MATTIFIER- Does this one even need to be explained?  Yes?  Okay, well first of all it's Bobbi Brown and I have NEVER been let down by this brand.  Like, EVER.  Second of all, it's a Primer that also helps with mattifying my oily ass face.   Lastly, it has 5 Stars on Sephora.  Drops mic.

GLOW RECIPE WATERMELON GLOW JELLY SHEET MASK-  I can't lie, I've definitely been sucked in by the whole watermelon skincare craze.  Not only do I love the scent but the benefits are BOMB AF as well.  This mask is suppose to help with Uneven Skintone + Uneven Texture which are two of my skin concerns always being acne prone.  I know everyone loves the overnight mask but I'm not fond of overnight masks so this one is right up my alley.  

PAT MCGRATH LABS LIP FETISH LIP BALM- Listen, from the time I found out that Pat McGrath was a self-made Billionaire, I've wanted to purchase from the line.  It almost seems like me buying one of her products puts me at close proximity to becoming a billionaire as well.  I know that logic doesn't make sense, just let me be with my dreams!  I've heard nothing about this product but the packaging is dope and it's a clear balm... how bad can a clear balm be?!

Personal Product Suggestions:

ORIGINS CLEAR IMPROVEMENT CHARCOAL HONEY MASK- This mask needs to be a staple in everyone's arsenal who deals with acne.  Dry skin?  Use this.  Oily Skin?  Use this.  Normal skin?  Leave me alone.  Unlike most charcoal masks, this one does not leave your skin feeling tight and dry.  Personally, I have to be careful using drying masks all over my face because my entire face is not oily.  In fact, some parts are actually more normal-dry and using drying products can cause even more problems in those areas.  The honey in this can provide hydration while the charcoal agents pull out that guck from your skin.  It's a match made in skincare heaven.

FRESH BLACK TEA KOMBUCHA FACIAL TREATMENT ESSENCE- About a month ago, a friend asked me how I've been liking this product and honestly my answer was, "I'm not sure because I can't really see what it's doing"!  After talking with her, it dawned on me that I also wasn't using this product consistently.  I have so many Essences + Toners that I wasn't really using this one much and I was also using them interchangeably.  Then I recently learned that Essences + Toners are not one in the same and in fact, you can use BOTH in your skincare routine.  Well that changed EVERYTHING and I began using this Essence more consistently, in conjunction with my Toners.  GIRL.  For this Essence to be so gentle on the skin, it's definitely a heavy hitter WHEN USED CONSISTENTLY.  I can't exaggerate that enough because I honestly didn't notice anything happening when using it every now and then but isn't that the case with anything in life.  No one sees results when doing something every now and then.  Consistency wins every time + that's the case with skincare as well.

PINROSE SECRET GENIUS- I first tried this scent as a sample that my friend received in her Sephora order.  I was hooked at first sniff.  I believe Sephora puts this in the Warm + Spicy family for those wondering what it smells like.  I would also say that it smells like a nice cuddle under your favorite blanket with a strong man next to a fireplace.  But since, that isn't the best description for a scent, let's just go with what Sephora says.  Worn alone, it wears well for an entire 8 hour day but I still like to pair it with my Malin + Goetz Dark Rum for a nice layered scent.  These two together cannot be stopped.  Don't @ me about this!

SEPHORA COLLECTION MASK APPLICATOR-  I don't know how I came across this tool on Sephora but as soon as I saw it, I knew I needed it.  YES, NEEDED IT!  Every time I need to apply a mask from a jar to my face, I wish I had some sort of brush or applicator.  This one fit the bill.  I love that the other end helps remove the mask + provides a little exfoliation while doing so.  I think I might actually go ahead and grab another one to apply my face moisturizers because at  $8, why not?!  Yes, I could use the same one to do both but that seems too easy... let's complicate things a little here. LOL.

DRUNK ELEPHANT MARULA OIL + MAKE UP FOR EVER ULTRA HD SKIN TINT-  I've spoken in depth about both of these products in a recent blog post here.  To save time and not be redundant, you can click to read my reviews on them there.  Long story short, YOU NEED THEM.  If that sounds a bit drastic then you at least need to give them a try!  The Drunk Elephant Marula Oil is a little pricey so that's a product I would definitely grab during the sale.  Don't say I never tried to help you save money.

Okay so I promised that I would share some other Sephora Sale posts in case you just had an itch to spend even more money so here they go.

HAPPY SHOPPING and don't forget to tag me in your purchases whether you grab any of these suggestions or not!
