There’s nothing like bringing in the new year with new makeup! My brother was kind enough to gift me a $50 Sephora gift card for Christmas so I decided to put it to use during the post-holiday Sale on Sale. Every year, Sephora knocks the price down on some of the hottest holiday products and some permanent goodies too–all while offering an additional 20% off. Can’t beat that!
However, I was having a hard time finding something I really liked and wanted to use my gift card on. Don’t you hate that?! So I poked around the site for a bit until I ended up scrolling all the way through the sale section. I was coming close to the bottom and I still hadn’t spotted anything I wanted. And then I stumbled across a Peter Thomas Roth cleanser for more than half off.
I recently tried his Cucumber Gel Mask and Rose Stem Bio-Cell Repair Mask with great results so I’ve been itching to try more of his products. The last thing I need is more cleanser right now (you’ll see why soon lol) but at $13 plus an additional 20% off? Add to cart.
Peter Thomas Roth describes it as a cleanser and makeup remover in one with wheat amino acids and vitamins A, C, and E. It’s also sulfate, alcohol and fragrance free so I had a feeling it may be a winner for my dry, sensitive skin. I can’t wait to try it!
I also added to Tartelette in Bloom Eyeshadow Palette to my cart as well. I’ve been eyeing this baby since it was first released and knew I had to have it after finally picking up the original Tartelette Palette. I just love the warmer color scheme and the 3 lusters Tarte threw in to add a little sparkle. I’m a bit overloaded with eyeshadow palettes right now but Tartelette in Bloom still appealed to me because it’s a palette that I know I can easily create a full look from. Which is a huge plus for my hectic morning routines these days. I have a feeling I’ll be using Tartelette in Bloom a lot this spring!
Last but not least, I finally decided to try the Sephora Bright Future Gel Serum Concealer that everyone was raving about last year. Sephora describes it as a lightweight gel-serum concealer that’s perfect for the sensitive under eye area. I always struggle with my concealer creasing on me throughout the day no matter what I use so I’m curious to see if the Bright Future Gel Serum Concealer will hold up a little better on my dry under eyes. I chose 14 Toast, a tan with neutral undertone, after reading through the glowing reviews and seeing another gal compare it to my beloved NARS Amande Radiant Creamy Concealer I’ve been hooked on for years. In her review, she claimed the Bright Future Gel Serum Concealer was almost identical in color, texture and finish as NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer so I had to have it. I did a quick swatch on the back of my hand and I like the texture so far. It seems rather lightweight and easy to blend. Fingers crossed it doesn’t crease like hell!
