I counted down the days until the Sephora sale. I needed a new base, foundation, and coverage system after I stupidly went to a crappy, unhygienic salon to get my face waxed (in my defense, I didn’t know that it was crappy and unhygienic at the time). I’m pretty sure she used cheap body cream to ‘soothe’ my raw face and I bet you can guess what happened: blemishes erupted! Two months after this incident, my skin is still suffering and so is my self-esteem.
None of my old tricks and make-up were working. My NARS stuff was too sheer and my Benefit stuff was too thick and yellowy when layered. It was embarrassing. I always felt self-conscious, especially of my chin 😦
So I decided to throw money at the problem and try out some new products. I was pleasantly surprised by the results! My favorite item by far is the stila Correct and Perfect All-In-One Color Correcting Palette. I’ve only started experimenting with this product and I’m already pretty darn impressed 🙂 I am, however, less impressed that Sephora has stopped carrying a lot of stila products, but that is a rant for a different post.
Then I got into the wonderful world of Bobbi Brown. Would you believe this was my first time buying a Bobbi Brown product?! I had always found them pretty pricey and the packaging is not to my tastes. However, I am super stoked with the results. I also got a valuable tip from the sales girl – tap don’t smear coverage products for blemishes.
And then I ‘Locked’ the look with Kat Von D Powder!
My skin keeps improving with using the boscia thermal black cleanser and I’m looking forward to finding time to use the boscia masks.
I feel like this was one of my most successful shopping adventures with the Sephora sale ever. I’ve been using most of the haul products daily and I now understand all the fuss about Bobbi Brown (she’s a miracle worker!)
Did you shop at the Sephora sale? Did you find a new product to love?
