Sephora Sale Goodies: April 2016
It's funny...the difference between 15% and 20% seems like a lot. For this sale I kept saying, eh it's only 15%. But during the Fall sale I say, oh boy it's 20%!!! All that to say I couldn't decide what to get. My cart changed 10000x's, and at one point I even thought I wouldn't get anything.

Invisibobble Clear - I love these things! I have them in black, white and clear. I keep losing them though so I needed more. Thank goodness they come 3/pack!!
Erborian Bamboo Matte Lotion - I like the idea that this is a thin liquid rather than slathering on a thicker primer or serum to help with the oilies.
Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil in Ash - Repurchase. I'm almost done with mine, not because I went through it that quickly, but because a few times I let out too much pencil and the tip broke -_- I still love it though!
Surratt Foundation in 3, 4, 5 (temporarily couldn't find the box for shade 5 in time for the pic) - I didn't even know this existed until I saw in on The Beauty Professor's blog. And lucky that, just in time for the sale!! Her swatches were really helpful (she has swatches of all the colors), but it was still difficult deciding on a color because they were the only swatches I could find. I'm usually a shade lighter than BP - she uses shade 5 - but from her swatches shade 5 seemed nice and yellow leaning. Shade 3 and 4 seemed more neutral or beige leaning, but her shade descriptions didn't match the Sephora descriptions so I was really confused on what to order.
From the differences in color I figured I'd probably have to mix 2 shades. 4 is really close as a stand alone shade (3 is definitely light), but it's still a tad too dark. I don't notice just looking at my face, but I can see a difference where it's blended into my neck - there's not a line, but I can still see the color variation. In warm light I don't notice, but in cooler lights or natural light I can tell.
Mixing in a little of 3 seems darn near perfect, but I'm still going to see if 5 mixed with 3 would be better suited (instead of 4) since it seems to lean more yellow. BUT I've worn this twice now, and holy amazing Batman...if it keeps going like this we might have a new favorite foundation!!!
Urban Decay Ultimate Ozone - Been looking for a lip primer to help with some of these drying liquid lipsticks that seem to show every nook and cranny on my lips. Hopefully this is a winner. Reviews seemed pretty good.
Perricone MD Chloroplasma Plasma - I'm kind of on a mask bender and this one has been on my list.
Sephora Marc Jacobs Birthday Gift - Second Sephora Birthday Gift!! So I had this in my cart around my Birthday assuming I would buy something for myself...you know...as you do. I ended up going into a Sephora store, made a purchase and they gave me a birthday gift (I chose the Fresh). So...I never took everything out of my cart...just kept changing what was in it. By the time the sale rolled around the gift was still in the basket. Who am I to say no? Ha ha.
VIB Rouge Welcome Gift: NARS Blush in Goulue - It's a mini! Supposedly this shade is exclusive for the Rouge gift. It looks really pretty in the pan, so hopefully it looks as pretty on my face!!
Did you buy anything during the sale???
