Now, Lets get to some products!
True to its name this product packs a punch of contentious moisture to your under eye. The first place you show from signs of aging, lack of moisture plays a huge role in combating those pesky fine lines. This thick cream (but applies lightweight) cools to de-puff and give a boost of moisture for fresher looking peepers. A little goes a long way so remember to apply lightly and this eye investment will last a while. Perfect for applying under makeup. I love this brand in the winter, when the climate is dryer and my skin needs constant hydration. With 4 3/4 out of 5 stars all those customers cant be wrong!
A classic scent that combines rose and peony to embody the confident, free-spirited woman.
Like floral perfume? This is for you.
Top note: Pink Peony. Middle note: Rose. Base note: Honey
I am not personally a perfume kinda girl but would make a great gift for any celebratory occasion. A very popular scent gaining 4 3/4 stars out of 5 from over 1500 lovers on Sephoras web page.
I may be a nerd when it comes to catchy play on words. This all natural brand taking us back to our roots. FARMACY (pharmacy) is opting out of anything chemically or artificially derived taking us out of the Pharmacy lab and into the Farm (get it?) Winning the 2017 Allure Best in Beauty should tell you something. This nourishing oil-based cleansing balm clears away makeup without stripping the skin. Its super gentle to those with sensitivities. Think you cant use an oil based cleanser if you have oily skin? Think again! Just another fallacy in the beauty industry. Did you know you can have over oil production from a lack of oil? Sounds counter-intuitive but dare you to google it 🙂
This range of multi-purpose sticks (7 Matte + 10 Shimmer) is the perfect companion for the person on the go. This long-lasting creamy eye-shadow stick in a shimmering champagne shade is right on trend. Flattering for a wide range of skin tones this Rose Gold stick gives you a subtle sweep of color. Use it as an eye shadow stick, corner of your eyes, sweep across your brow bone, use as highlighter and my personal fave, make that lip color come to life with a little dab in the center of your pout or cupids bow. Small enough to fit in any clutch or pocket for an impromptu to refresher on the go whether your in the back of a taxi or in between meetings. Busy mom? PERFECT for those no make-up, make-up looks.
A cult favorite winning product is a 2017 Influenster Reviewers’ Choice Award winner for Best Luxury Lip Balm. Available in 13 shades, this lippie acts as a natural humectant to lock moisture in while jojoba and black currant seed oil nurture and heal. Comes in Clear or 12 other shades for a wash of color. I personally love putting this on at night. Stays with me while I sleep and still feel it in the morning. Well worth the investment for your puckered pout all year round.
Sometimes I’m weary of in-store brands acting like a knock off to the more expensive companies it shares the shelf with. Fortunately I cant say the same for these Sephora Collecion Matte Lipsticks. With a range of 8 Shades this highly pigmented Matte lipstick offers great coverage without drying you out. The long lasting berry hue compliments almost every skin tone. For $12.50 you cant go wrong trying this line out. I own multiple colors and use them on my clients frequently for a perfect pop of long lasting color. *tip, apply to moisturized lips, blot, reapply if necessary and blot again.*
Well, That has it for this months Sephora Play box! Cant wait to see what next month brings!
Wishing you all well here at Life in the Beauty Lane!
