The Holidays are right around the corner, and that means it is mega sale time! Around this time of year, Sephora does their 20% sale. It is the perfect time to test out new products or splurge on items you would usually never treat yourself to. The VIB Rouge Sale was last weekend, but November 10-15th is the VIB sale. I believe rouge members also have access to the sale with the code 20FORVIB. Sephora only offers a discount twice a year, so stock up on your favorite items while the sale is in session!
Since the sale is going on now, I thought it would be a great opportunity to share some of the products I have picked up recently. As I have gotten older, I have started to develop a less is more attitude. I have transitioned from wanting to have products for the sake of having them, to wanting a smaller collection of makeup that makes me excited to get ready in the morning. We all know how chaotic that time of day can be and I do believe that little luxuries can bring a joy to your tired morning. I have begun to purchase fewer items, but at a higher price tag. These products might be on the pricer side, but I do stand by them and feel that they actually make a difference in your makeup game! So here are a few of the makeup items I have picked up recently that have quickly become game changers in my everyday makeup routine.
I have been die hard over my Laura Mercier Translucent Powder for years now. But I have been loving that this Charlotte Tilbury product adds just a little more coverage and truly does add an airbrush effect to your skin.
I recently mentioned this foundation in my post 6 Luxury Beauty Products Worth the Price Tag. I am so obsessed with this product! I really love how high coverage it is without being cakey or drying.
3. Contining on the topic of the perfect base, I have been using the Guerlain L’Or Primer and have actually noticed a difference in the way my foundation applies and wears throughout the day. It is actually meant for more mature skin because the skin care benefit of lifting, but I am using it anyway!
It has now become socially acceptable to glow like a disco ball on a daily basis. But I decided I wanted a highlighter that was a little less over the top for everyday use. I found the Dior highlighters to be a little less glittery than the Becca Shimmering Skin perfecters. It is just a really beautiful and well made highlighter for a more every day look.
Switching from a pot gel eye liner to a liquid liner was the best thing I have done for my eye makeup routine. This liner really lasts all day and stays black! And the wand on the mascara is my favorite for achieving long, dramatic lashes.
I actually think that the luxury brands have been uping their game dramatically over the past few months. They have made a huge leap in the world of liquid lipsticks. They finally have mastered the long lasting color with a nondrying formula. This is definitely the most comfortable lip stain I have tried. The Dior ones are definitely more pigmented and another favorite, but these feel almost none existent on the lips.
