Sephora Purchase Ideas

Sunday, January 19, 2014


I was very lucky this past Christmas to receive several gift cards to the makeup lovers candy store, which of course I'm talking about Sephora. When I told my friends out of pure excitement I heard the same question several times: "What the heck are you going to buy?". I've also been asked the same question by friends who received gift cards but get a little overwhelmed in Sephora and wanted some advice. 

I've put together a little list of a few of my favourite items from Sephora if you're feeling stuck or overwhelmed:
- Urban Decay Naked 3: for something a little more romantic then the typical neutrals.
- NARS Blush: My personal favourite is in the shade Deep Throat, a beautiful light pink with *slight* shimmer. Next on my list is Sin!
- Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick: Can't believe it took me months to try this! I only own one in the shade Streak from my most recent Sephora Goodies post but my gosh...stunning! Can't wait to go back and get more.
- NARS Sheer Glow Foundation: Perfect if you're looking for a medium coverage foundation with a very natural finish. Oily Skin gals don't be afraid! Ask for a sample before buying to make sure it's the right foundation for you!
- Hourglass Ambient Light Powder: Okay I cheated here, I don't own one of these but I hope to soon! I want to purchase Dim Light since I've heard so much about it and I love the idea of walking around with a "soft focus" effect and blurring out imperfections.
- YSL Rouge Volupte Lipstick: Because they're so dang pricey why not use the help of a gift card on this one?! A super luxurious lipstick that will look stunning on your vanity or applying in public just to show off that stunning gold packaging.
- Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush: I have completely fallen in love with these blushes! I own the two most talked about blushes, Dollface and Exposed. Both are so lovely and I can't wait to grow my collection - next ones I need: Blissful and Flush.
- GlamGlow Supermud Clearing Treatment: This pricey mask ($69 CAD) can do wonders for blackheads as well as decreasing redness and the "bump" of any blemishes, a must for me but if your skin is clear you may want to save your gift card for an item listed above!

Those are my top Sephora items that I would recommend getting your hands on if you have some extra money to spend or if you received a gift card!

  1. Tarte blushes are gorgeous but I still don't own any! I'm looking to purchase the Naked 2 palette; I think that's next on my Sephora shopping list. I wish I had a Sephora gift card to use!
