Sephora Beauty Insider Appreciation Sale: Wish List!

Until last Friday I had no idea Sephora would be doing this sale. I know, and longingly wait for, the sales in April and November, but an extra sale?! Yes! Just an end-of-summer treat for all us beauty lovers! So here’s my wish list:

Makeup

(From left to right)

I have been wearing eyeliner a lot more recently. Its a look quicker to apply than eyeshadow! But the eyeliners I have are either liquid, or dried out. This Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On eyeliner is so smooth and easy to use. In fact, I already bought it! I got mine in the color whiskey which is a warm brown.

I’ve wanted to try the Besame lipsticks for a long time. I’m a bit of a retro enthusiast when it comes to fashion and beauty. Besame’s range of lipstick are retro inspired, as are their other (perfume, powder, mascara, etc.) products. Castor seed oil is also the first ingredient in this lipstick, so its probably a very hydrating formula.

I’ve been a lover of the Becca Backlight Primer Filter for a while now. It gives my face a radiant glow, and I’ve received compliments on my skin when I use it. Its not glittery, or very shimmery; whatever reflective element in it is very, very fine.

I’m also on the hunt for a new foundation that is hydrating, but doesn’t leave my skin oily. One that blends well and doesn’t dry down too fast. One that’s not atrociously expensive. *Sigh* the hunt for my holy grail foundation goes on. Perhaps this Rainforest of the Sea foundation by Tarte will fit the bill?

On the same note, I want to try this foundation by Givenchy. I’ve never tried a single product by them (well, expect from a lipstick sample, does that count?), but this Photo ‘Perfexion foundation is highly rated.

Skincare

Ah skincare, always the bigger of the two on my Sephora wish-lists. (left to right, top to bottom)

Does the Estee lauder Advanced Night Repair serum need an introduction? I’ve used it before and it’s so good. Hydrating, not irritating, and I think it helps with fine lines. Its also expensive, hence waiting for a sale to repurchase.

I love the Sunday Riley Blue Moon cleansing balm. Because of the price ($50), I use this more as a hydrating mask. Afterwards my skin is so soft and supple, but not oily. This stuff works.

I ran out of my Clinique eye cream, and really liked the ingredient list on this Ole Henriksen Banana Bright Eye Cream. Jojoba seed oil and shea butter are two of the main ingredients! Some serious hydration for dry under eyes. And the price isn’t bad (for a higher-end eye cream).

I blogged about this Honey mask from Farmacy in my Summer Favorites post. I’m so glad it’s back in stock because it went out of stock for a while and I was like Nooooo!

I’ve wanted to try Tatcha’s products since I heard about their water cream and rice exfoliating powder. And while this sample pack does not include the rice powder it does include the water cream, silk canvas primer, and deep cleanse cleanser. It was a value of $99 and costs $79 before the discount.

I see Algenist as one of those serious skincare brands. Not sure that opinion is justified, but this sample box caught my attention with its nice sample of four different products. There’s a cleanser, eye cream, moisturizer, and some kind of collagen serum.

And lastly, this Dior serum. I first heard of these Dior serums on a fashion mumblr vlog a few months ago. I like me a good serum, but at $95? Definitely not if it’s not on sale. This serum has an AHA, Vitamin C, and hylaronic acid; some of the best skincare ingredients in my opinion.

 

What’s on your wish list? Do you lean more towards makeup or skincare?
