Sephora Friends and Family

Did you take advantage of Sephora's Friends and Family 20% off promotion? I treated myself to some birthday presents a week before the sale started... ugh bad timing! There is still one day left (ends 11/2).

Among what I bought...

Why didn't I buy this sooner? Well, it's often sold out in stores. Really, really, really wish I had invested in this earlier in my life! There are so many tutorials online with tips on how to utilize this palette.

I made the mistake of trying to pull the inside lid off of this powder and antiqued myself and the mirror. Then I realized there are a few tiny holes you need to punch through. Mmmmhmmm... good one Linds. I love the way it feels but I need to do a better job of buffing because I noticed my skin was looking pale in pictures. Do you use this or Bare Escentuals Mineral Veil? If you've tried both, do you have a preference?

I am heading to the store tomorrow to test some bronzers. I am currently using Benefit's Hoola but have heard great reviews on the others above. Basically I feel like I can't pass up this sale.

I would love to know your favorite beauty blogs - please share!


  1. I use MAC bronzer. They have different shades so you don't look like Snookie if you are originally very pale like me! Down side is its not sold at Sephora. And I did use the F&F discount! I'm actually thinking about using a different email and buying some more stuff! haha

  2. I have the Make Up Forever powder and like the way it works...I do find it too drying for everyday use. Great list! I love to read The Beauty Lookbook and Cafe Makeup because they both give great in depth reviews of products along with swatches.

  3. I've been wanting the Naked palatte forever! Looks like now's the time. Urban Decay shadows seem to last me forever. I love em.

    PS- Don't forget to enter 'The Perfectly Imperfect Home' book giveaway on my blog!

  4. Naked Palette is so amazing! I have NARS laguna but honestly love my MAC bronzer so much more! And I had the too faced sun bunny which is good for winter because its a pretty light color so it gives you a natural tan, but in the summer it just doesnt show up enough!

  5. So dangerous! Going shopping now! Thanks for the heads up. The Naked Palette is incredible. Have had for a year and am obsessed.

  6. Love all of these products!! i took advantage of the Sephora sale too. I bought the makeup forever microfinish powder and no lie the SAME thing happened to me this morning as i was trying it for the first time, I didnt realize you had to POKE out the holes!

  7. I am in desperate need of a good bronzer-- let me know what you find!!! :) (i let the blog world do my research apparently, haha) ;) oxx

  8. I love how Lauren at the top says she is going to beat the system and make a fake email account- just so she can have more discounts haha love any chance to beat the system!! ;)

    A girlfriend bought the Naked Palette and I was jealous and now I am super jealous of you my friend!!!!

  9. I obviously need someone to teach me more about makeup. The more and more I read blog posts on the subject the more I realize how little I know.

  10. I bought the Naked Palette in my most recent Sephora order. Hope you're loving it as much as I am!

    P.S. Sorry for all the comments tonight, I am catching up on commenting on all of my starred posts on Google Reader (going back to early October..yikes!)

    XO lamb loves
