Sephora Deals Under $10

As I was walking through Sephora yesterday, I had no intention of buying anything (I was just passing through to get to the parked car). But as you all know, when it comes to us beauty junkies, it's hard to resist a sale and great deals. Upon walking in the store, I saw a "$10 deals and under" table and I thought to myself...these are great deals. There were many things that caught my eye, and I could have bought everything on the table...ultimately spending over $100, but I did not. I did, however, get my hands on 4 of these awesome deals.

The first thing I picked up was the Tarte Go Go Goji Double Dose Lipgloss. According to the Sephora website: This treatment gloss contains skin invigorating ingredients such as acai extract, an antioxidant-rich super fruit that promotes cell regeneration and has known anti-inflammatory and skin softening properties, and goji berry extract, a nutrient dense berry referred to as a "superfruit." It's also formulated with pomegranate extract, which has a high concentration of antioxidants and vitamin C, acerola extract, which helps to brighten skin, and maracuja extract, which has been known to reduce redness, irritation, and inflammation of the skin. I really like this lipgloss, and the packaging is very eye attracting with the pigment in the middle tube and gloss on the outer tube. VERY CUTE!

The next item I picked up was the Nars Custard; Ginger Duo Concealer. This is a steal at $10 as the original price is $30. According to the Sephora website this camouflages blemishes and dark spots and evens out the skin's tonal variations. Enriched with Vitamin E, this lightweight, non-drying formula won't settle into fine lines or creases. I tried both shades out on my hand and they seemed to match my skin tone. I'm hoping it helps out with under eye circles as mine tend to get horrible at times.

Another deal I grabbed was the Stila A Couple of Crushes Cheek and Lip Stains. According to the Sephora Website this must-have duo includes two stunning shades of the best-selling Lip and Cheek Stain formula. Infused with naturally staining superfruit extracts, this multitasking formula reacts to your pH levels to create a perfectly customized shade. It builds and blends with ease, and creates a fresh, youthful flush. I must say that the 2 colors, Mango Crush (sheer, shimmering coral) and Pomegranate Crush (deep berry), are gorgeous! I love them. After playing with them on my hand as a cheek stain, I knew I had to have these. They are both full sized products as well, which makes this something I couldn't pass up.

My last $10 deal I grabbed is my absolute favorite. It is the Benefit To Go Beauty Bestsellers ($30 Value). For only $10, who could pass this up. Granted, these are not full sized products, but it is perfect to try out Benefit's best sellers. This perfectly portable set of mini Benefit faves has everything you need for a gorgeous, glowing complexion anytime. This set contains Posietint: A poppy-pink tinted lip & cheek stain, Some Kind-A Gorgeous: The foundation faker, That Gal: A brightening face primer, and High Beam: A luminescent complexion enhancer. If you would like to try out some of Benefit's best sellers, this is the way to go. I bought this set mostly for the That Gal and Some Kinda-A Gorgeous. I really wanted to try these out before buying the full sizes as Benefit can get quite pricey.

You can not only take advantage of these $10 and under deals in store but online as well. There are also many more deals $10 and under to choose from. The link to these great products is here:


Huge Lush Sale

So as many of you know if you've seen my Day After Hauls on youtube, there is a huge lush sale going on.  I've been getting many questions as to when the sale will be over. Unfortunately, I don't know the answer to that question.  I've been hearing many different things.  My sales associate in the store told me they would continue until they ran out of items.  I also heard it was going to last until January 16.  The best thing I can tell you guys is if you want to take advantage of the sale, do so quickly.

The sale consists of buy 1 get 1 on all prewrapped holiday gifts and regular gifts made before December 1st.  Also my store was doing the buy 1 get two on all the holiday items and all soaps, not just holiday soaps.  It was quite fun shopping at lush yesterday; however many of the things I wanted were sold out.  In hind sight, I am kind of upset that when I took advantage of the buy 1 get 2 soaps, I stuck with the same soaps.  I should have mixed them up. I was thinking..."I have that one already, and I'm out of these" so I got 3 bars of Sandstone and 3 bars of Bohemian.  Both of these soaps smell of heavy lemon and citrus.  Sandstone has a layer of sand on the top which is great for cleansing and exfoliating. 

I did do well with the bath bombs and Christmas prewrapped gift part of the sale.  I think I have enough lush to last a while.  I will not be shopping at Lush until mid January when my husband (who is a DJ) will be playing at their annual birthday party.  I am really excited about this party as they are going to have retro only products at my store to celebrate the anniversary of their Grand Opening.  I hope all of you had a great holiday!  Please stay safe for New Years celebrations.
