Hey! Know the latest news? It is not about politics or whichever, right! Duh!?
It’s the biggest Holiday Savings event of the year… SEPHORA is ON SALE!!!
Get ready girls and gals! Pick up those lappies and find out which on your wish lists have been dropping with discounts.
Me? Here are some of the skincare products I have purchased this week and of course added MORE already to my basket! Haha-I need help!
How about you? Take a look! You may want it, too.
I love this serum because it is very gentle and non-irritating. A great option if you are just starting to use AHA in your skin regimen.
• THE ORDINARY – Lactic Acid 5% + HA
This 5-per cent liquid formula offers very mild exfoliation for normal skin. It is free of parabens, also vegan, cruelty-free, and gluten-free. Good for fine lines, wrinkles, dullness, and uneven texture. The Tasmanian pepperberry helps to calm and soothe your skin after exfoliation. Best to use once per day, ideally in the evening. To reduce its strength can be diluted with other treatments until the skin develops its tolerance. Avoid contact with eyes and when irritation occurs, stop using it and consult a physician. It is advisable to patch testing before use because of its AHA content. I’m using sunscreen and wears protective clothing when going out. It may increase the skin’s sensitivity to the sun and the possibility of sunburn when exposed within a week of use.
• Next on my list is the KVD Vegan Beauty – Lock-it Foundation
What excites me the most about this foundation is the matte finish in medium sand undertone shades. A full-coverage liquid foundation perfect for my all-day wear, easy application, and blends on my skin well. It is free of parabens and phthalates. The good thing with Lock-it Foundations is that it is transfer-resistant and truly stays on my face longer and not on the clothes or anywhere else. This foundation best partnered with Lock-it Hydrating Primer (sold separately) to make sure our skin is well-hydrated before applying.
• And to add more to my collection, I have Matte Perfection Powder Foundation from Sephora in Porcelain Pink color with plenty of shades to choose from. A creamy powder foundation, weightless, buildable coverage. A pressed powder that flexes and moves with the skin in a natural-matte finish. No cracks, cake, or any suffocating feels on the skin. Using the sponge applicator, just simply sweep and blend. For others who want to apply for lighter coverage, apply this using the Sephora Collection Classic Multitasker Powder Brush #45.
For defining my eyebrows and highlighting it, I chose these two of my most faves:
• BENEFITS COSMETICS – Goof Proof Waterproof Easy Shape & Fill Eyebrow Pencil
I love the warm medium brown color. It is super-easy filling and shaping eyebrow pencil with 12 available shades to flatter every hair color. Lots of amazing colors to choose from, so whatever your skin type, this is an A+!
This Goof Proof Brow Pencil features a custom tip that easily shapes, defines, and fills in brows. It effortlessly blends up to 12 hours. I can feel its softness when I apply it, a glide-on color that creates naturally-full-looking and beautiful brows. And it’s waterproof!
There have been clinical results where out of 109 women used this after a week (from a consumer panel survey); 95% said it was easy to fill and shape brows. In an instrumental test on 20 panellists, the color lasted for 12 hours. Another 22 panellists say that the color is indeed waterproof.
• BENEFITS COSMETICS – High Brow Glow Eyebrow Highlighting Pencil
And to redefine my brows with a luminous that instantly illuminates and visibly lifts my brows is this one! It has creamier and more blendable formula. Very subtle highlight and looks super cute under my brows. It is a champagne-pink shade with an eye-catching luminous finish accentuates arches, makes eyes pop, and gives the brow area a lifted look.
And for the Highliner Gel Eye Crayon Eyeliner, I love March Jacobs’. This eyeliner comes with shimmer, matte and satin finish with lots of color collection that would best suit our mood.
This waterproof gel pot eyeliner in a crayon lasts for 12 hours. An exclusive to Marc Jacobs Beauty, it is the super malleable formula that offers versatility, flawless, and a luxury experience of a gel eyeliner.
An Allure Best of Beauty Award Winner Highliner. It’s a perfect all-around eyeliner!
These three are my fore-keeps and always on my make-up kit.
To spice up my daily favorites, the next items I got are best of the best, iconic, smudge-proof, lip tint, and cheek stain.
• BENEFITS COSMETICS – Benetint Rose Lip & Cheek Tint
The Benetint Rose Lip & Cheek Tint is formulated with Water (Aqua), Polysorbate 20, Phenoxyethanol, Sodium Hydroxide, Carmine (CI 75470), Methylparaben, Fragrance (Parfum), Tetrasodium Edta, Geraniol, Linalool, Hexyl Cinnamal, Citronellol, Maltodextrin, Benzyl Salicylate, BHT.
I apply this on my lips and layering it to build intensity. Sometimes I put on some lip gloss to have a pouty look. For my cheeks, I put a dot and blend it. The color is so natural-looking and long-lasting, it can stay almost all day. For a healthy-looking and dewy glow, you can wear under High Beam(a satin highlighter which can be sold separately) on cheeks.
• NARS – Orgasm Oil-Infused Lip Tint
I love the peach-pink shades with golden shimmer!
Getting a high shine finish, non-greasy feel and a surge of hydration on my lips make this NARS Orgasm Oil-Infused Lip Tint special because of a seductively-plush-looking lip. What is more amazing about this product is the hydrating lip oil, and other ingredients such as raspberry seed oil that nourishes lips while protecting against environmental stressors; and pomegranate extract for long-lasting hydration and antioxidants.
Now for the end-of-day regimen, let’s not forget how important to properly remove our makeup and do some skin pampering and leaving-out all the impurities.
• LANCOME Bi- Facil Home & Away Duo
A limited-edition, the two-piece set makes up removal liquid formula that activates when shaken to gently whisk away even waterproof eye makeup while conditioning and refreshing the skin. Two for the price of one! One bottle for home and one for travel, that’s so convenient to use and easy to take any time anywhere. For those who use contact lenses, this product is safe and tested as advised of ophthalmologists, especially if you have sensitive skin. This works well, just soak the activated formula onto a cotton pad and apply around the eyes and lash line to remove eye makeup.
• For all skin-types, here’s The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5, hydrating formula with ultra-pure, vegan hyaluronic acid. Parabens and Phthalates FREE. Another Allure Best of Beauty Award winner because of its remarkable formulation. It combines low, medium, and high molecular weight hyaluronic acid, as well as a next-generation H.A. cross polymer. A 2% combined concentration for multi-depth hydration.
I apply a few drops over my entire face in the morning and evening before using creams.
There you have it, my love! My basket is full of beauty collection that made my online shopping experience much exciting and I’m so loving it!
Wait, there’s more!
That is because I got a 20% discount and being one of the Rouge customers, I have enjoyed getting more products like:
• Charlotte Tilbury Mini Magic Cream and Mini Jewel Lip Gloss
This is an iconic duo. Charlotte’s Magic Cream instantly hydrates, plumps, lifts, and smooths my skin for a glowing and dewy complexion. Partnered with Jewel Lip Gloss with glittering jewel inspired pearls. Perfect for birthday gift ideas!
• Viktor&Rolf Flowerbomb
The warm, sweet, and spicy scents made me feel a garden-party-like with an enchanting whirl of cattleya, jasmine and rose grounded in patchouli and vanilla.
• SMASHBOX Classic Primer
This product is a great primer to make our skin looks smooth and refines pores and lines so that the makeup will last. It has Vitamins A and E to protect our skin. And of course, vegan and a cruelty-free product.
• Kiehl’S Midnight Recovery Concentrate
I got this night oil that serves as an anti-aging night serum. It helps with skin hydration overnight for a smoother-looking complexion and achieve that radiant glow comes morning.
