Last Saturday I dragged a good friend to Sephora. Just quickly, I said. Let me just buy a concealer, I said. This isn’t a huge shopping trip, I said….
I had intended to stay cool, calm, collected on this quick excursion. No dawdling. No chit chat. Just a simple trip to Sephora to buy a single concealer but… what can I say? I’m a girl and I get caught up in all exciting new trends, especially as I’ve started to become paranoid about aging. Let me tell you, I no longer look bright-eyed and bushy-tailed (unless you count my naturally frizzy hair) in the morning. I need all the help I can get, which is why I went a little crazy and became a major shopaholic. Here are just a few of the things I bought on my massive shopping trip.
Sephora Ginseng Eye Mask: I don’t know about you but if I don’t get sleep, my eyes look really puffy, which is why this mask is perfect. I’ve heard about these in the past and have always been a little dubious about how effective they are but I can honestly say after trying it over the weekend… it worked. After using it for twenty minutes, I looked so well-rested. I’m a massive fan.
NYX Matte Finish Setting Spray: Setting spray is a must-have for anyone who wears make-up throughout the day. I honestly don’t know what I’d do without it. Two simple spritzes after putting on my make-up and I feel like I’m all set. It keeps everything in place (no more smudging, hooray) until late afternoon. Perfect!
Odacite BI+C Pimples Serum: I don’t know about you but I sometimes (still) get pimples. Urgh, what’s up with that? They’re the worst, which is why this serum is so fantastic. Mixing it in with your daily moisturizer will literally get rid of your pimples and help you achieve blemish-free skin. I started using it on Saturday and the two zits that popped up on the side of my face have completely disappeared.
Living Proof Satin Hair Serum: Okay, this isn’t really a beauty buy but I did buy it at Sephora so it kinda counts, right? I have incredibly frizzy hair so I’ve been on the look out for something that would make it a little more manageable. Oftentimes, these serums make my hair oily or flat but this one is different. It smooths my hair while keeping it grease-free. What’s better is a tiny bit goes a long way. Just one or two pumps, rub your hands together and then use it wherever you need to. In my case, it’s mostly on the ends.
Oh, and as for the concealer I wanted to buy? I didn’t buy it. It turns out that it was sold out so I had to buy it online. It’s Bare Minerals Bareskin Complete Coverage Serum Concealer. I haven’t tried it yet but I’ve heard incredible things.
