Oh Sephora… if every there was a “here, take all my money” store, this is mine. Here’s a run down of what I am picking up to try this time around. Most of these have been sitting in my favorites list just waiting for me to try. I’ll be sure to let you know what I love once I give them a whirl…

(And you can find my all-time favorites to stock up on HERE)

Don’t miss the VIB promo code: SPRINGSAVE

HOURGLASS Ambient Lighting Blush | $40

I am on the hunt for my perfect glory blush and based on the reviews, this might be it. I am trying the “Mood Exposure” color. My skin tone has cool/pinky undertones and is medium to tan depending on my self tanning level of the moment. I like that there is a trial size for about half the price making a test run without swatching it on my skin more palatable.

CHARLOTTE TILBURY Colour Chameleon Eye Shadow Pencil in Amethyst Aphrodisiac | $27

So I jumped on the Charlotte Tilbury wagon with the Pillow Talk lipliner recently and I am fully impressed – creamy with good color pay-off (color depositing) so now I am moving on to try a couple more CT products. I love the idea that this eyeliner pencil is designed to highlight your eye color and also be a one stop smokey eye. Since I am planning to use this more everyday than for a night out, I am getting the Amethyst Aphrodisiac for my green/grey eyes. Because, really, I am all about anything that makes getting mornings easier…

CHARLOTTE TILBURY Eyeliner – Pillow Talk | $27

Again, CT sold me on their products with the Pillow Talk lipliner, so why not give the eyeliner a test run? Beauty guru Kathleen Jennings gave it rave reviews for a subtle no-eyeliner defined eye look… #kathleenjenningsbeautymademedoit

IT COSMETICS Bye Bye Redness Neutralizing Color-Correcting Cream | $34

Okay, I will be honest, if something gets the axe before I click “order” this may be it, mostly because I am not sure I “need” this product. I definitely have a tendency to wake up feeling a little red-toned thanks to my pink undertones, but that it’s never a problem to blend with my iT Cosmetics Bye Bye Foundation… and since starting to use my NuFace device, I have noticed less and less morning redness… All that said, I have been LOVING all my iT Cosmetics products and I sorta want to give this one a try…

PETER THOMAS ROTH Pumpkin Enzyme Mask Enzymatic Dermal Resurfacer

I hoped on the PTR mask band wagon about a year ago, starting with the Rose Stem Mask – which I love! I then added the Blue Marine one to my mask collection and love it for intense hydrating… so now I am ready to try another one… I have not heard as much about the Pumpkin Enzyme Mask but I like the fact that it looks to be agents peel & polish… anything that promises smoother, younger looking skin is worth a spin…

IT COSMETICSConfidence In A Cream Rosy Tone | $49

I am super excited to try this out. I have seen a few videos from iT Cosmetics showing mixing the Bye Bye Foundation with a moisturizer for a softer finish, which I have done and loved… but all my moisturizers are either super heavy for night time or seem to have a yellow tint to them – neither of which is just perfect for daytime mixing. So I am excited to try this out to see if it creates a more rosy tone to my mix which would better match my actual skin tone.

TARTE SEA Pack Your Bags Undereye Patches | $22

Okay, I have almost pulled the trigger on these eye patches so many times… I keep holding off because they are not cheap. And while I know the Pixi eye patches have become a cult favorite, they just don’t do all that I want them to for me… so I am still on my holy grail hunt & I am finally going to give these Tarte eye patches a whirl… BONUS, they are Clean at Sephora!
