This Friday, Sephora is having its annual Friends and Family Sale, where everything you purchase is 20% off when you use the code FF2010!!! This is an AWESOME opportunity to grab some high end makeup that you have wanted to try and haven't because its a little pricey, or to stock up on some of your favorite products. Sephora has also just come out with some awesome kits that are amazing deals you can pick up. Over the past couple months I have been a complete makeup junkie, so I am SO excited about this sale! Below are some of the products and kits and I am planning on purchasing on Friday!
This has been on Sephora's website for a while and I just haven't picked it up. It originally was $39 dollars, and at a $104 value, this is a steal! In this kit there are 10 deluxe size samples of mascara from some awesome brands including Benefit, Laura Mercier, Smashbox, and more. If you are a mascara lover or looking to try a variety of products, pick this up now!
I've gotten a number of different primer samples, and while I do think they help my makeup stay on longer, I really don't want to spend a whole lot of money on a primer. I remember reading somewhere that this primer was comparable to the Smashbox Photo Finish Primer, which is twice the price. So I thought this would be a good thing to pick up at 20% off.
This is my absolute favorite go-to concealer. This will be the 3rd tube I have purchased. It has a great consistency, not to liquidy or too thick, and does a great job covering up acne spots and concealing undereye circles. If you need a good concealer, this is a great one!
This is a GREAT value if you are a Benefit lover or wanna try some of their products. You get a full size of their CORALista blush (which by itself retails for $29!), full size of Eye Bright instant eye brightener (I've wanted to try this on my inner corner), and 2 deluxe minies of their BadGal mascara and "That Gal" face primer.
We I went to Sephora up in Charlotte back in July this was the one product I was wanted and they were sold out! I ended up getting the NARS Orgasm Illumintor instead, but I still wanted to try out the infamous Orgasm blush and the oh-so-popular Laguna bronzer. So instead of buying the 2 separately, this is the perfect thing to throw into my makeup bag.
This foundation has been super popular on Youtube and among the beauty community. I'm fairly new to the liquid foundation world (I've been using Bare Minerals for a couple years) but recently have been wanted fuller coverage. Right now I'm using Revlon ColorStay Foundation, but with all the rage about this one I can't help but want to try it. At $42 this is WAY more than I usually spend on any kind of makeup, but with the 20% off I wouldn't feel as bad if it did make my skin look amazing.
This is an AMAZING gift if you are a frangrance lover or looking for a new perfume. Not only do you 12 samples of designer perfumes, you also get a refillable rollerball to use with the samples. AND you also get a voucher that you can take to any Sephora store and get a bottle of your favorite perfume from the set...FOR FREE!!! Now the only catch is that the voucher is only redeemable in store, so you can't use it online. That's my only hesitation about this kit. The closest Sephora to me is in Charlotte, about an hour away. But according to a Q&A on the Sephora website, the voucher doesn't have an expiration date. So if you know you'll be around a Sephora at somepoint, this is an awesome deal as these purfumes can cost anywhere from $40-$50.
**Note: There's another kit that I believe is $75 and has more higher-end perfumes if you're interested in that as well**
So those are my soon-to-be purchases. I'll let you guys know for sure what I do end up getting and probably make a video about my likes and/or dislikes. Let me know what you guys are going to purchase or you think I've missed something that I just have to have. Happy Shopping!!
**one more tip: Sephora offers free shipping on orders over $50 or more. So if you know that you're gonna be spending over $100, I would recommend dividing up your order into $50 increments, THAT way you still get free shipping and you get more samples since Sephora offers 3 samples with every purchase!**
