This year, the deals were not as overly appealing as in previous years. Perhaps my interest were different than the typical bargain finds, or the items were already sold out by the time I reached for them. I have often skipped the lines by shopping after Black Friday and still found deals. However, it can be fun to experience the thrill of the hunt and be able to capture that "once a year" type of deal. I did not have that experience this year though. A few years ago, my family and I went to the stores on Black Friday right as they opened to obtain one of the doorbuster items. I stood in line for an hour and people were aggressive, but I ended up obtaining the item. Even though the item was supposed to be a doorbuster, they did not sell out and the item was available the next day for the same sale price without the long lines or rude shoppers. Honestly, the time spent with family has been the most enjoyable aspect of any of the time spent shopping. With living across country and a part from family, I am thankful for this holiday to be together with my family and know that my time a part from Jake is not too much longer.

What is in my Sephora Cart!?

The BEST time to try new products and restock on your favorites is during the Sephora Insider sale. Whether you are a insider reward member, VIB or Rouge status Sephora is offering savings for you. This is one of my favorite sales of the year, therefore I wanted to share what is in my cart. 

#1  TOO FACED PEACHY PERFECT FOUNDATION - This is my NEW favorite foundation! A oil-free medium coverage foundation that claims to last 14 hours, which I can say is very long lasting. Since moving to WA state and experiencing colder weather, my skin has been less oily and more dry. This foundation has helped with keeping my skin glowing, but not oily despite the dryness of the climate. You have to try it! Did I mention it smells like peaches!?

#2 TOO FACED JUST PEACHY PALETTE - This is a palette that I wanted to try! The colors are beautiful for fall, yet one could use for an everyday look any time of the year. I have heard great reviews about the pigmentation and creamy feel of the eye shadows. I cannot wait to try this palette!

#3 BEAUTYBLENDER GOLD MINE KIT - This is a limited edition holiday kit! I was in the market for a new beautyblender and saw that Sephora was offering two beautyblenders plus a couple of bonus items as a kit for $40. The kit offers a blotterazzi which is a reusable blotting pad. I am excited to try this out!

#4 STILA ALL-DAY LIQUID EYELINER - This is a eyeliner that I have been using for a while now and love how it locks to my eyelid all day. The color is fresh and does not transfer. I wanted to have another one of these on hand at a discounted price. 

#5 DIOR ADDICT LIP MAXIMIZER PLUMPING GLOSS - This is a lip plumper that I hear great reviews about, yet I love the Too Faced Extreme lip plumper and have been using for years. With the sale, I decided this was the time to try a new plumper!

#6 TACHA POLISHED RICE ENZYME POWDER - I have been using the Pixie Peel & Polish enzyme peel for a while now, but I wanted to try this one by Tacha. This is a more pricey peel than my current one, but the consistency is less gritty than the Pixie one. Therefore, the peel is softer on the skin. I will do a review after I have used this for a few weeks.

#7 ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS GLOW KIT - This is a new glow kit from Anastasia Beverly Hills and the highlights are beautiful! I tried them out in store and could not get enough of the GLOW! They are metallic in color and come in 4 different shades. 

#8 URBAN DECAY NAKEN SKIN CONCEALER - One of my favorite concealers that I wanted to restock on was from Urban Decay. For me the coverage is medium to full, blends easily, and does not crease with or without setting it. I LOVE it!

My full VIB Sale haul will be up on my beauty channel on Tuesday, Click here! Check that out and happy shopping!

SALE ENDS 11/15!
