Okay so the holidays are over, "Boo Hoo." I'll miss the happy holiday lights and decorations, and then on the other hand "Yeah" because I'm exhausted from all the eating and wrapping. I had a wonderful Christmas and received more gifts than were necessary, but let's be honest, there are always some things that we all didn't get that we wish we had!
Everyone knows I obsess over the cosmetics store Sephora even though there is not one closer than an hour away from me! And I can never get enough makeup, so it's the go-to online shopping store, and right now is the time to shop it. They are offering free shipping for orders over $50 (easy) and they have tons of stuff on sale.
1. NARS Sephora Exclusive Lip Gloss collection ($81 value, NOW $35). Yes they are mini versions of the originals, but it includes 5 glosses, one clear, and includes the ever popular Orgasm and Harlow. I mean, one of these bad boys costs $24 for the full version, so it's a steal to try 5 for a bit more $$.
2. NARS Eyeshadow Palette ($50 value, NOW $45). Okay, so it's only 5 bucks cheaper than the original price, but yet again, you get to try 6 eye shadows, which is still cheaper than trying to buy 3 of the full sized versions. And this palette includes one of my FAVORITE colors of all time, "Ondine" a plum with golden flecks that works on everyone, and it does NOT include any weird colors that you'd never use, like fluorescent yellow or blue.
3. Stila Shine On Gift Of Glaze ($48 value, NOW $22). Stila mini lip glazes are the best if you love lip gloss - if you like lipstick, not for you. But if gloss is your thing, this set includes four of their top selling colors like "Apricot", and two new ones, a melon and vibrate pink color. A steal in my book.
4. LORAC Croc Case Full Face Collection ($250 value, NOW $44). If you just look at the difference in the original value and the price now, it's worth buying just because of that! LORAC (which is Carol Shaw, the creator's name spelled backwards) is one of those cosmetic lines that doesn't have a hugely publicized name, but has really great products. This collection comes in a black faux croc case that could honestly be carried around as a tiny clutch. It contains 16 eye shadows, a highlighter and bronzer, 2 blushes, and 3 lip glosses - that's a lotta product for a little money.
And Ladies, it's okay to shop after the holidays. Don't feel guilty, you're purchasing for the new year and the fabulous New Year's Party you'll be attending!!
