SEPHORA SPRING BEAUTY EVENT 2018

*Affiliate Links Used, View Full Disclosure HERE*


Today kicks off Sephora's Annual Beauty Spring Event. This is a good time to stock up on items that you always purchase and use, it's also a great time to buy a few things you may have on your wishlist.

So how does the sale work?  
If you're a Sephora Rouge Member you will receive first access to the sale beginning today, April 13 until April 16. You'll be able to get first dibs to many items at 15% off!
So what if you're not a Sephora Rouge member? Don't worry! If you're a Sephora VIB or a Beauty Insider you'll still get access to the sale just at a later date, April 20-23. If you're Sephora VIB you'll receive 15% and Beauty Insiders will receive 10% off. If you're not a Beauty Insider you can sign up easily on their website HERE

I'll be 100% honest, when I hear 15% or 10% I don't get super excited. I believe Sephora does a better sale in the Fall offering up to 25% plus there are other places such as Ulta who sometimes have better deals than this. BUT! A little bit off of something is much better than nothing, especially for those gems that are exclusive to Sephora! I don't think I'll be going super crazy during this sale but rather buying a few things I know I use often and will need to replace soon such as my beauty blender, or maybe one or two items I've been wanting to try but haven't pulled the trigger on. Below, I'm sharing a few products I"ll be picking up, products I've tried and believe are worth the purchase, and also a few new products that may be worth trying during the sale.




Beauty Blender  - I will most likely pick up a new beauty blender - I love to use these for my concealer under my eye!

LancĂ´me Monsieur Big Mascara  - I've been using this mascara for a little over a month now and I absolutely love it! 

Anastasia Beverly Hills Soft Glam Eyeshadow Palette - Read my review of this palette HERE 

Lancome Teint Idole Ultra Longwear Foundation - Read my review of this HERE

House of Lashes Lash Adhesive - This is my favorite lash adhesive! 

Peter Thomas Roth Un-Wrinkle Peel Pads  - These are amazing, I wrote about them in my JANUARY FAVORITES POST 

OLEHENRIKSEN Banana Bright Eye Cream - I posted an INSTAGRAM raving about this eye cream, I've only been using it a few weeks but I love it!

OLEHENRIKSEN Find Your Balance Oil Control Cleanser  - I'll be picking this up, I tried this in a sample and I really liked it. 

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara - I *think* I may finally pick this up and give it a try. Unfortunately, I missed it at Ulta when it was half off, so I may snag it now. Like I mentioned, I haven't tried this, but I hear so many people rave about it, I'm curious!

Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz - One of my favorite brow pencils!

Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder - One of my favorite setting powders, I've used this for a long time!

Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil  - Love these!

Ouai Wave Spray - Love using this!  



Other Items I have my eye on:

Makeup:




Skincare:





Tip - you can also shop sale on sale. So basically items that may already be on sale -up to 50% off - you can shop the beauty event sale on top of these! 

Another tip - I already mentioned how I feel about the sale, I also wanted to throw in that I do advise you to do some research as well before buying anything. I say this because brand websites often offer family and friends sales which can be up to 25% off, so if something you are wanting to purchase is on sale on the brand website you may end up saving more money purchasing it that way.

MARC JACOBS SHAMELESS YOUTHFUL LOOK 24-HOUR FOUNDATION REVIEW

Affiliate Links Used - View Full Disclosure HERE


Hey Hey!! I love to try new foundations, I've found a few that I would consider to be my holy grail products, foundations I can always go back to, always count on, however, I am always in search of the next best thing I guess you could say. I see all the new releases and think, what if this will be the foundation that triumphs over all my other foundations??? Ha! 
Today, I wanted to share my thoughts/review of the Marc Jacobs Shameless Youthful Look 24-Hour foundation. I do not own any Marc Jacobs face products so I was super excited to try it out. Let's jump right in!

About the Foundation: The website markets this foundation as a 24-hour longwear foundation which encapsulates the SPF in the pigment. This technology makes the SPF undetectable, basically no flashback or white/gey cast on the face as often caused by SPF. This foundation is an oil-free, buildable medium coverage foundation with a total of 29 shades in the collection.

Packaging: As you can see the packaging is cute! The foundation comes in a small little plastic bottle, with a squeeze tip for dispensing the foundation. I actually like the packaging because it's easy to travel with, just throw it in your makeup bag and you're good to go! Because of the shape and size of the container, at first I didn't think there was much in there, but there is 1.08 oz which is standard for most foundations. 

Cost: The price of the foundation is $46. This is definitely more of a luxury foundation as it's on the higher end of the spectrum. Depending on what you're looking for, what you're used to etc this may be a bit much to spend on foundation. 

Thoughts: On the positive side, the color match for me was amazing, it literally melted into my skin (my shade was Y480 for reference). It's also extremely lightweight. I also like that there is SPF in the foundation as it's super important to protect our skin. I know many shy away from products that contain SPF for fear of a grey cast or flashback, but I did not experience that with this foundation at all. I knew when I purchased this foundation that it was medium coverage, so I wasn't expecting a full coverage however, I did feel like it was more along the lines of a BB cream when first applied. Also, for me it did not wear well throughout the day. I feel like it settled into my smile lines and overall just didn't look good on me as the day went on.
If you love a medium coverage I definitely suggest you try it out. You can always pick up a sample and wear it for a few days to see how it does. It may do well on your skin but for me it just didn't work very well. 

Have you tried this foundation? What are your thoughts about it? I'd love to know in the comments!
