friday five {sephora edition}

Sephora is having its semiannual VIB 20% off promotion now through Monday (Use code VIBTOPIA). It is a great time to stock up on your favorite products. Plus, Ebates has 4% cash back on Sephora purchases today. And all the product ho’s said amen.

Here are my top five Sephora favorites… (It was really hard to narrow it down to five).

1. Sultra Bombshell Curling Wand


I have mentioned this jewel before. This is the best thing that has happened to hair since the discontinuation of Dippity Do. I know it is expensive but it is worth every penny. The curls last for days and it is super easy to use. Get you one while it’s 20% off.

2. Clarins Liquid Bronze


I am so pale that I look translucent. Not a good look. This face tanner works wonders. A little goes a long way and the bottle lasts forever.

3. Stila Eyeshadow in Kitten


This is my all time favorite eye shadow. I wear it everyday and have for years. Sort of a goldie beige… looks great on everyone. Even gals with translucent eyelids.

4. Bvlgari White Tea


Perfume never goes on sale. Except at Sephora twice a year. Love this scent… it is light and does not give me (or those around me) a headache. Unlike my constant jabbering about Ebates and curling wands.

5. Fresh Seaberry Face Oil

I love Josie Maran argan oil but I decided to try this face oil from Fresh. It is a great nighttime moisturizer and perfect for dry winter skin. And don’t forget Fresh Sugar lip treatment… or do because it is addictive.

Please share your favorite Sephora buys in the comments section. As if the product situation over here isn’t bad enough already.

  1. I’m majorly interested in that Fresh face oil. I’m all about some oils in chilly months. I always love your beauty recs!

  2. Trying to decide what I want. And Halloween looks like it was a big time!

  3. I love Sephora!! I use Fresh Hesperides perfume and body lotion. And my all-time favorite eyeshadow palate is Urban Decay’s Nude. Fabulous! Fresh Sugar lip treatment is wonderful!

  4. Wearing Kitten right now~mourn the loss of the old cardboard lippies! Love me some Fresh Sugar Plum! Must try that oil…

  5. Hand Lotion – L’occitane currently; as the weather change makes my hands feel like sandpaper (and I live in FL – I can’t imagine states with drastic weather changes). Loving the holiday gift sets currently in stores! Sephora eye pencils – GREAT colors. I am partial to their metallic browns/ silvers.

    So, if I may be so nosey I am curious what profession you are in? I went back to work last year after staying at home for 7 years and I am thrilled to be back – haven’t regretted the decision once! It isn’t easy, but it is worth it!
