Please cue the Sephora Sale Klaxon! As you’re probably aware, the big Sephora Beauty Insider sale kicked off last week for their high-level members and today it’s open for all and sundry. (You have to sign up for a membership if you don’t have one, but if you buy anything at Sephora ever, you probably do already have one.) It’s always fun to discuss what we’re buying, or considering buying. For me, I’m maybe thinking about….buying lipstick again? Is that even possible? (I had dinner with a friend the other night and she had on a great red, and it was just Sephora brand. The price is so much more reasonable than a lot of other lipsticks. Which isn’t to say that I’m not tempted by these Pat McGrath lipsticks, or this beautifully packaged Gucci lip balm. ) I also have to say that Grace Atwood’s post about the Grandelash has made it very tempting to me. And when I signed on to the site, Sephora itself was like HELLO THERE ARE NEW LANEIGE LIP MASKS. I’m also going to stock up, as ever, on Olaplex — I had surgery in August (I’m fine!) and a bunch of hair fell out afterwards and now I feel like I have to really baby it. I always want new shampoo; for example, I am seriously tempted to buy some of Briogeo shampoos because it’s so funny/cute that they look like pressed juices. (And they have great hair masks!) And, finally, I bought this Dr. Jart Grass Color Correcting Treatment last sale and I REALLY like it. You really don’t need to use a lot of it.
It’s also easy to spend a really excessive amount of time in their “mini size” section, to be totally honest. Why are travel-size items so appealing? I don’t NEED a mini rose quartz facial roller! Although it might be a cute stocking stuffer. Also, obviously, this is the time of year when I think it would be wise to buy like…$600 worth of candles. Do you have a candle that smells like “the woods” or “fire” or “wood fire”? I will consider buying this.
So that’s me! Here’s a bunch of OTHER stuff you also might be into, but I’m interested in everyone’s recommendations/shopping carts!
Those aren’t the sale prices — everything is from 10% to 20% off depending on your Sephora Insider level. (Sephora Collection is 30% off.)
