Shopping Wishlist: Sephora

Lately, I have been window shopping online. I've visited so many store websites, it's crazy. I think it's fun to see what new things I can spend my "moolah" on when I'm in the ACTUAL store.

I like planning out what to buy, just so I don't go over my budget for the day. Though when I see something I REALLY REALLY like, I can't help but buy it which gets me waaaay over my budget. (and trust me, that happens ALL THE TIME!)


Sephora is one of my favorite makeup stores. You can find almost everything there. From all kinds of skincare products to every color of the rainbow nail polishes.
I get lost in Sephora every time I walk in. I have to allow myself at least an hour in there. ;)

Here are a few of their new arrivals. Thought I'd share it with you guys!


GHD Boho Chic

This set contains:
- ghd Gold Professional 1" Styler
- Protective Plate Guard
- 2 Sectioning Clips
- Get-the-Look Book
- Boho Inspired Heat-resistant Bag

The "Boho" look is the definitely a trend this season. Almost everyone is rocking it. And I, personally, love this look. The beachy waves with braided headbands wrapped around your head. TO DIE FOR. Love it :D


Amika Triple Barrel Pro-curler Set

My curling iron right now is the one with the clip.
I've been wanting to try the clipless wand just because it gives you a more natural looking wave. And a lot of people has been saying that it's waaay easier to use than the clip ones.


Urban Decay 15 Year Anniversary Eye Shadow Collection

LOVE the colors.


Allure Beauty Editor Palette by Sephora

It includes:

- Five fashionable color palettes
- Portable compact.
- The compact is interchangeable, so choose any palette, snap it in, and go!

Each palette contains:
- Six eye shadows
- One blush or bronzer
- One doe foot lipgloss.

Interchangeable Color Palettes:
- All Fun No Sun: coppers, bronzes and browns
- Color Theory: sharp jewel tones like violet and green
- Beauty 101: soft nudes and taupes
- Sparkles Fly: black, bold gold and orange
- Where There's Smoke: smoky charcoal and grays

Isn't this cool?!


Benefit One Prime Day

I have used the "That Gal" primer and it works great.
Now I'd really love to try the "Pore-fessional" and the "Stay don't stray" ones.
It's really good to apply primer before anything else because it helps the makeup last longer. It also makes the makeup more vibrant.


Laura Mercier Moisture Supreme Foundation

I've been hearing really good things about this product.
I want to see for myself. ;]


The Garden of Good & Evil Nail Mini Collection

This set contains the colors:

- Completely Fern-ished (dark green)
- Eve-y On the Eyes (grape)
- Tempted by Teal (metallic teal)
- Frankly I Don't Give A-Dam (gray)


Spark-tacular top coat

Enough said :D


Someday by Justin Bieber

It smells good but nothing special.


DKNY Be Delicious Juice Gift Set

I love the Be Delicious Apple perfume. It smells soooooo good!
So I would love to have this.


And finally, Vera Wang Princess Gift Set!

I have been wanting this ever since I can remember. I just never get the chance to try it. (I always end up spending my money on clothes.)

Have you been to Sephora lately? What's your latest purchase?

  8. Tease.
    You can't tempt me with this stuff!
    Especially that Urban Decay set and the DKNY fragrance.
    I am a total Urban Decay whore when it comes to their makeup, and I could literally eat that DKNY perfume if it wouldn't kill me.

  9. Gotta love Sephora!! Great products on this list!

  10. Thank you so much for take a look to my blog!

    I'm going to follow you


  11. Nice picks, Carrie!

    Clipless irons are easier to use, you can control the ends of your hair when curling, that avoids frying them.;D

    I didn't know he has a perfume line.. wow.

    ****** Marie *****

  12. @Jennifer: I love to go window shopping everytime i don't have money to spend. it's fun to see what you'll buy next time around. :D

    @Angie: same here!

    @Bonnie: haha, you just made me laugh.

    @Rachel: Thanks.

    @Cristina: Thanks for stopping by!

    @Marie: Thank you. That's what I heard! I really want to try clipless iron curling iron.

  13. I don't usually shop in Sephora -- I'm a drugstore makeup girl truth be told -- but I have that straightening iron and LOVE IT. Definitely a must have. xo style, she wrote

  14. Great list! Honestly, that Laura Mercier foundation is so worth it. Best foundation I've ever used...great coverage and it doesn't make your skin greasy. I also tried a similar curling iron to that one (called The Bombshell) last time I was there and it was fantastic.

    I was really excited to buy the Oh Lola! perfume by Marc Jacobs, but I smelt it today and it wasn't all that exciting. I still prefer Daisy. I really want the Urban Decay "Naked" palette!

  15. What a choices. I love that curling iron (just because I need one) and cute eye shadow palette. Of course all things looks really awesome, I couldn't pick just one. My latest purchase are clothes, just like you said: I somehow always end up spending my money on clothes. Yeah... :)

  16. hi dear your blog is so cool!



  17. I love window shopping online! I wish we had more Sephoras in the UK - when I come to the US I always spend ages in there and spend loads!

  18. I think I am going to have to go get that Sephora by OPI nail polish set!


  19. I'd just get all new clinique skin stuff. Its too hot here for makeup :)
