Sephora Black Friday Deals

25 November, 2011

Okay so first off-no sighting of an ULTA ad yet, and no word on WHAT is in the VS GWP tote. I’m skipping as it’s a $65 buy-in, and I could use the money instead on Blacklist items at work, or Christmas presents.

Anywhoo, Sephora has the 10 for $10 today, and it’s a doozy. The deals are the following:

Kat Von D Adora perfume
Stila Glitz & Glam palette, with Raisin lip glaze
Tarte Lights Camera Lashes mascara and mini MultiplEYE primer
Korres Guava lip butter (full-size) and mini body butter
Sephora Collection mini brush set
Bare Minerals trio-Glee all-over colour, a tapered blush brush, and full-size Rouge gloss
Art of Shaving 4 Elements gift set (pre-shave oil, shave cream, after-shave balm, and shaving brush) in the Lavender variety
Josie Maran Petal Pink Argan Colour Stick
Buxom Lash mascara/Chocolate Citrine eyeliner
Tokidoki Cromatico eyeshadow palettes

I’m definitely interested in the perfume; I’ll have to mosey three doors down on my lunch to see if it’s worth me buying! I’m also maybe getting one of the shadow palettes. I need more shadow like I need a hole in the head-but Adieu looks up my alley.

New ULTA Ad: 8-28 August

10 August, 2010

So I haven’t gotten an ULTA ad in ages, and the only thing I had received recently was my latest coupon (which I used well-I have reviews coming soon on the Cargo mini set). But I figured this was because they have the latest rewards coupons. Again, I am level four, but I’m probably just going to use it on a nail polish. The nice thing is that the rewards certificate is valid through the middle of September, so if you are wanting to use it on nail polish you are actually best holding off on it until the next ad comes, because there might just be a deal (ie B2G1 free) on OPI or Essie. There is an OPI mini set with a $10 OPI purchase-it has minis of Brisbane Bronze, Bogota Blackberry, and Black Cherry Chutney-but I hate the OPI minis. Brisbane Bronze and Black Cherry Chutney, especially, are staple polishes for me that I can’t imagine being without. (Russian Navy is in there; it’s my lucky colour. I wore it when I got my current job, and when I wore it today I had my best performance probably EVER. Definitely a lucky colour if there ever was one)

It’s another bag with fragrance purchase thing-this time, it’s a weekender in white, pink, or teal with a black jacquard print. I like it, but honestly a) I never am away from home, and b) I have enough suitcases already. There are lots of newbies though-JPG Classique X, Benefit’s new three (So Hooked on Camella; which is a floral with vanilla, Lookin to Rock Rita; a green fruity, and Garden of Good and Eva; a citrus floral). The ad had a sample of Camella, which I actually really like. It’s VERY similar to VS Dream Angels Halo, which is a recent love of mine. This is my summer frag for 2010, and the Benefit fragrances aren’t too out of reach (granted, it’s just a one ounce EDT but $36 is reasonable IMO) so I may have to get it once I run down on something. There’s also the Daisy Pop Art edition, which is basically a red bottle with black flowers. Calvin Klein has new Eternity Aqua for men, Philosophy has Eternal Grace (which I may need to give a try), Blumarine has new Blugirl, and more.

There are also more bag with purchase deals-a $75 Ed Hardy fragrance purchase will get you either a tote (ladies) or backpack (men’s), a $70 women’s purchase will get you a clutch with minis or a $65 of men’s will get you a “flight bag” with minis of CK Eternity, and a $58 DKNY Be Delicious purchase will get you a tote. Lots of value sets also, nothing really that new or interesting except the Princess one, where for $65 you get the 1.7 ounce EDT, a body lotion, and a lipgloss keychain with a mini bag.

It’s the time of year for the ULTA brand GWP-with a 17.50 purchase of the cosmetics, beauty tools, or minerals, you get a gift in your choice of purple or green. Each has two shadow quads, two polishes, a dual-ended lipgloss, a dual-ended eye pencil, a blush, a bronzer, a lipstick, a mirror, four brushes (sponge-tip eye, eye shader, powder, angled blush…all long-bristled), and the bag. There are also new ULTA brand items-mousse blushes, compact foundations, Legendary Lengths mascara, gel liners, and cream shadows. My mum uses some of the stuff from hers from last year, although I avoid the ULTA brand stuff since my skin got kinda irritated. What can I say, it’s picky skin. Read the rest of this entry »

Earlier this year, Sephora came out with about ten sets of products that featured minis of some very popular things. It’s a good way to go if you are wanting to try things out, or also good for breaking up and tossing into gift baskets or Christmas stockings and stuff like that. Well, for Christmas, they have come out with five all-new sets, and these are some fairly interesting ones. So, without further ado, here is the carnage! (Heh)

Set 1: Lip Service Kit
This kit is designed to have all the favourites you need to get holiday-ready lips, with a selection of lipsticks, pencils, and glosses (including a full-size!!!) in universally-wearable colours.
The Products:
DuWop’s Private Red lipstick
Korres’ Wine Red lipstick (one of their Guava lipsticks)
PlantLove by CARGO’s Muir Woods lipstick (this looks to be a full-size)
Tarte’s Hatha lipstick
Laura Mercier’s Pink Champagne lipstick
Smashbox’s Sheer Lip-Enhancing Gloss
Sephora Brand’s Nano Lipliner-it says either 11 or 14
NARS’ Roman Holiday lip pencil

The cost? Only $38-and it’s valued at over $115.

Set 2: Lashstash Deluxe
This has always been a popular one-because it has the little sizes of mascara, which are way more economical than buying full sizes that inevitably don’t get fully used up.
The Products (all minis)
Benefit BadGal
Urban Decay Skyscraper
Smashbox Lash DNA
Laura Mercier Thickening/Building
Tarte 4 Day Lash Stain
CARGO LashActivator
Sephora Brand Lash Stretcher
Fresh Supernova
Korres Lengthening/Stretching (abyssinia oil)
Hourglass Superficial Lash

The cost? Only $39-and it’s a $104 value. Read the rest of this entry »

Sephora! Woo!!

23 March, 2009

So today I went into Sephora to check out some new stuff and some stuff I’ve been wanting to try for awhile…as I don’t always get free time like this, ya know!

The main thing I wanted to try was the Pocket Rocket gloss from UD but sadly, they were not in yet. I did finally get to try the new Heavy Metal liners, and they are all gorgeous. Catfight is a true bright magenta, and it seems similar to the bright pink deluxe shadow, or MAC’s Romping. I love pinks, so it is a necessity for me. Groupie is a paler pink-think a midtone silvery pink. It would be amazing with a pale pink shadow like Pink Freeze, or with some neutrals to break it up. Stage Dive is a teal-green, so good with a wide variety of colours. It is not new-new, but it is permanent now, and it’s the one I need the least, but I still need it. I also tried out Distortion-which is a white iridescent liner-and it is gorgeous. I would be able to wear a lot more looks if I used Distortion, as it’s very subtle. Read the rest of this entry »
