Hi, everyone! The subtitle of this post should be "give this gal a tiny discount and she will shop till she drops". My Sephora VIB status was quite recently renewed and, when I found out that this came along with a limited-time 10% off coupon, I got ready to pounce. Ten percent is far from a generous bargain, but since Sephora hosts sales so very rarely (they have me wrapped around their little sparkly finger, they do!), I was pretty excited. I strolled into the Yorkville Sephora location on Friday with coupon in hand and took my time to swatch and swipe dozens of product hopefuls.
After careful consideration and lots of play, I picked up three products from three brands that are much loved by this gal: Too Faced, Josie Maran, and Marc Jacobs. Here is a shot of the packaging:
And here's a glimpse of my new goodies unboxed and ready to play!
Too Faced Love Flush in I Will Always Love You
I've heard mixed things about these new blush offerings from Too Faced, but the packaging had me leaning towards the side of "yes, you must". When I read this review from Lilting Grace, the deal was sealed. I Will Always Love You is a gorgeous golden melon shade that I know will look amazing year-round.
Josie Maran Coconut Watercolour Eye Shadow in Maui Teal
I am no stranger to these little fluid eye shadows- I already own three of them (reviews here, here, and here). The range features the most beautiful colours and these babies truly wear all day long! When I spotted this golden teal shade in Josie Maran's summer collection, I knew I had to take it home.
Marc Jacobs Twinkle Pop Eye Stick in Honey Bunny
I've swatched these so many times in the past- the shades are lovely, the glimmery finish is stunning, and they have the nicest cooling effect on the skin. But it was this recent review from Killer Colours that totally convinced me I needed Honey Bunny in my life. From the flattering pinky beige hue to the nearly wet-looking sheen- it's perfection!
Here are swatches of the three products on my inner arm (MAC NC15 skin tone):

And while this shot is a little blurry, it actually shows the finish of the products quite well. I mean, look at the twinkle of Honey Bunny, the subtle golden sheen in I Will Always Love You, and the metallic gorgeousness of Maui Teal. Stunners, all three!
While there's no question that I didn't need any new makeup items (understatement of the century), with my 10% discount in hand, I'm pretty certain that I snagged three of the most beautiful (and potentially underrated) items in the store. They are all entirely perfect for summer and I cannot wait to sport them soon!
Has Sephora lured you in lately? Have you tried any of the goodies featured here?
Thanks for dropping by! xo
