The minute I received notification of the event, I rubbed my hands together and began compiling a list of my absolute must-haves. I've made several beauty purchases in the past few months so my lust list isn't as long as it could be. Especially since I have a couple of pricey items on my radar. But with 20% off, now is the time to go big and save on high-end items that I've always wanted to try.
Aqua Gel Mist // With winter on the horizon, I'm preparing the strategies to keep my skin moist despite the dry air. The most obvious solution is to mist regularly with a facial spray. I thought I knew everything I needed to know about facial mists until I learned there's such a thing as "gel facial mists." Apparently, gel-based mists have the ability to keep the skin hydrated for longer periods of time. The thicker consistency prevents the water from evaporating too quickly which is what we all want. I scrolled down the list of the countless facial mists available on Sephora and Aqua Gel Mist was one of the higher rated items so I need to try it for myself.
Sunday Riley Power Couple Duo // Honestly, I've been waiting the entire year to finally get my hands on Sunday Riley's Good Genes. It's been on my wish list for way too long. Last week, while in New York, I popped into a local Sephora and, to my surprise, a representative from Sunday Riley was on site to answer questions. He explained that Good Genes uses a lactic acid that is formulated to retain it's low pH level. Other acid based products, he claims, are a lower grade and lose their potency during formulation. Their proprietary process is what creates a product with the ability to refine our skin like never before. Everyone keeps talking about the amazing wonders of Good Genes serum. Can't wait to finally try it.
Dyson Hair Dryer // Ok so, you might remember when I talked about the upcoming release of the Dyson hair dryer. Well, it's finally here and available to us at 20% off retail prices. At $400.00 per unit, this hair dryer is quite an investment. I've been paying close attention to online reviews from early adopters and, for the most part, people are very happy with their purchase. Out of 145 reviews on Sephora, the Dyson Dryer has received 113 five star ratings. I keep reading about how drying times are drastically reduced. If that wasn't enough, reviewers keep raving about how healthy their hair looks after using this dryer.
Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer // My all time favorite skin concealer. I stocked up on these so I'm good for now. But this VIB sale is the perfect time to try these if you haven't yet.
Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation // This foundation has been on my wish list since the dawn of ages. My current foundations are great but this one makes my skin look amazing. No wonder why celebrities such as Kim Kardashian & Rihanna swear by this foundation to create their flawless finishes.
BlackUp // Lastly, I would love to use this extra discount to try various BlackUp products. I've got my eye on their beautiful chocolaty nail colors and contour sticks. I've searched high and low for a contour stick deep enough to show on my skin tone. BlackUp was the only one that complimented my skin perfectly. The creamy consistency was to die for which meant that it would blend easily and create a natural contour.
Part of me is cringing when I think about how much my total charge will be, but, at the same time, I'm excited when I calculate how much I'm saving. I probably would have purchased all these items eventually and paid full price. At the very least I'm definitely buying the blow dryer, Good Genes and Giorgio Armani foundation because of the potential savings. Looking forward to sharing some first impressions posts in the future.
