Re: Anyone Make a Purchase During Sephora's Spring Sale?

[ Edited ]

@monicakm ,My eyes aren't really red, only if I wear my contact lenses too long!  LOL!  I can't figure out why, but I look kinda sick with pink all over my lids.  I've been hitting the center lid with just a touch of some of the pink colors and with blending and a brown, grey or navy liner (thanks, Shanus!) I can make them work.  But at this rate, the pink shadows will be all that is left!

jellyBEAN, I just saw a review today by Hot and Flashy on you tube (an older reviewer) and she loves the Sephora brand eye liners and was recommending them. Hope that helps.

Do you happen to have bloodshot/red eyes?  My mother once told me that pink and mauve eyeshadow would make my eyes look sickly so it's not something I ever wore.  Now I know that that's not always the case.  It might be for her but I don't have bloodshot eyes and I love pink e/s on my blue eyes.  However, Sephora is so good about returns so if it's not a good choice, I know they'll let me return it.


@monicakm   The trick to wearing pink toned shadow and not getting the "rabbit effect" is to wear a darker liner to separate the shadow from the eyes. Also be sure to check under the lashes that no skin is showing. That can be a pinkish tone, too.

Re: Anyone Make a Purchase During Sephora's Spring Sale?

Unfortunately, Sephora doesn't carry my skincare...more expensive than makeup items.

 

I may try a lash serum, but figured if I liked it, would have to continue using it forever at the regular price. I don't need more perfume and the few items in my cart, like stated by another poster, were sold out. 

 

I think I said here a few years ago, whether Sephora is rewarding its better customers (Rouge members) or not, I really don't agree with the tier ststem of letting one group purchase first at a higher discount and then items sold out by the time others get the opportunity to buy at a lower discount.

 

This is just a marketing incentive to have people spend more during the year to achieve the higher status. No thanks.

I have a small list of items I'm thinking about.  One is Daisy Eau So Fresh roller ball or mini spritzer.  I just luv that fragrance - so light and springy, but I don't need a large bottle of it.

 

I'd also like an eyeliner - probably a brown shade, to attempt a waterline under my top eyelashes.  Dominique Sachse recommends doing this as opposed to lining the top lid, and I think she knows what she is doing, I enjoy her so much.  Not sure which brand to choose though.  Pick Sephora brand and not spend too much?

 

Some sort of tinted moisturizer might be nice.  Or a self tanning face oil.  I'll probably order something for sure.


 

@jellyBEAN   To answer your eyeliner question, since it's applied in the waterline and between lashes, it must be waterproof and also a softer pencil. I prefer one that I can sharpen to keep it sanitary. I use UD 24/7 liners.

Re: Anyone Make a Purchase During Sephora's Spring Sale?

There are quite a few people who swear by the Fenty Fly pencil for tightlining the upper lashes.  I've never tried it but I personally find the UD 24/7 pencils to be highly overrrated. They are almost too soft and because of that, it seems like I had to sharpen mine every other time I used it.  I also really dislike pencils I have to sharpen.

 

FYI, Sephora Collection products are 30% off.   I have been using their brand of liners for years so I ordered more.  I also ordered the make-up removing balm which I absolutely love.

 

Right now there is nothing else I need so I have no intention of placing another order.  I do want to try the Olaplex shampoo and conditioner but I was hoping they would put together a value set and they didn't.  I'm not buying each of those separately so I will wait.  I'm only an Insider so 10% off isn't enough to entice me to take the plunge.  I will wait for the Nordstrom sale.  They usually have an Olaplex deal.

@Sammijo10 @jellyBEAN I absolutely love the Sephora Collection eyeliners.  I use the retractable waterproof ones, not the ones you have to sharpen and not the liquid.  They have a great color selection, they stay on my eyes, don't irritate my eyes and you get a good amount of product. They aren't so soft that you run through them quickly but they aren't hard to apply either.  

 

I'm not a tightliner so I have no idea how they would work for that but they are waterproof so I think you'd be ok.
