Holding out for the Sale



I have been slowly ( slowly being the operative word) using up some of my basic make up items.
Yes, I do have quite a few things that can be suitable replacements but sometimes, I only have one of each thing because they're not exactly "fun" to buy, and the rest? Well that's just make up love ;)

Current Sephora FF Wish list (prepared it early this year!)


Sephora FF Sale

Though I am out of a few things, or just plain running low, I am going to try not just hold out for the sale that usually happens in the fall to stock up on a few things that are both needed and the rest are just wanted.

YSL Sheer Candy in Cool Guava, Armani blush in 2 or 10, Benefit's Hervana, Benetint, Armani Stretch Mascara, NARS eye shadow base, Dior Iconic Mascara, Laura Mercier Mulberry Lip Stain, Lancome Cils Booster, and Sunday Riley's Effortless Tinted Primer.
*Not pictured is Anastasia Brow Gel, Shiseido Foundation brush, Clarasonic brush heads*

I may not get everything above (mainly the face primer due to complete lack of need)
but a girl can dream...

Other items I am currently lusting after which is unavailable from Sephora

Chanel lipstick in 28, Romantic, NARS Mykonos cream shadow and lastly, Burberry's eye shadow in Almond.

While composing this list I also saw this as "New" on the Sephora site from Laura Mercier, hmmm


What are your current wish list items?
Are you holding out for the sale like me?

  1. Ah kellyyes tweeted about the FF sale earlier today and I placed an order last night not thinking about it! Oh well, it was my birthday treat :) I ordered my first ever NARS products yay! Sin blush and Lhasa shadow. Cannot wait ! Your list is impressive, Benefit Hervana has been on my wishlist for awhile but I need to curb my blush obsession lol (not going to happen...)

  4. I started pondering really hard about my Sephora F&F Wishlist a few days ago and pretty much am certain I'm going to get a Illamasqua blush, MUFE lippie and Dior lippie.... Still room for change though :) I'm debating if I want to get a YSL glossy stain or Dior lippie but I have a lot of lipglosses and not too many great lippies. I saw that LM eyeshadow palette and instantly fell in love but my eyeshadow collection is RIDICULOUS and I really don't wear as much shadow as I used to :( They don't have Giorgio Armani makeup on Sephora's site but it's available instore which is incredibly annoying but I heard they have a F&F sale on their own site in the next few months or so.

  5. oh nice choices i love Dior lipsticks the ones in the clear tubes and the glossy stains. The stains are more balmy, the Dior's are more shiny so it's hard to pick.
    Ah, I have not seen the palette in person but it lists several colors i have always wanted to try from her brand but not enough to buy the singles.
    I'll prob buy many things or it SEEMS because i put so many items away for my blog sale
    Yes the GA i will have to buy in person but we are very fortunate to be able to go to the store to but it as many ppl will not be able to since its not on the website itself.

  6. I am trying REALLY hard to make some essentials (like my Nars primer, MUFE Aqua Black cream shadow/liner, Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum, and my Clarisonic brush heads) last til the sale, but I'm not sure I'll be able to make it! :( I was just looking at that Laura Mercier palette today, too and so that may go on the list as well...other items are: Tarte Exposed OR Nars Douceur OR Tarina Tarantino Neopolitan Lane (trying hard to narrow it down before then!), Marc Jacobs Rollerball Trio, a Becca Beach Tint (or two...still trying to narrow down the shades!), Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Moonstone, and Becca Eye Tint in Romanticism. OH, and another Sugar Honey Tinted Lip Treatment

  7. oh what a fantastic list!!! i always stock up on those brush heads!!
    Btw Tarte Exposed and NARS Doucer i prefer Doucer on me, for some reason i dont reach for exposed...
    ack everyone saw the LM palette so far but me! i know where i will be walking to at lunch tomorrow!!
    Ahh the becca beach tints! those are nice there is one i like...fig?...one of the newer ones...it looks like the liquid version of Doucer!
    Ahh the new moonstone!!! i want it too! but i have opal and pearl so i mix the two!!


    you have some great items listed, hold out!! not too far longer! ( i think)

  8. I just saw the same LM eyeshadow kit on Sephora. It looks amazing, though I do wonder how large the eyeshadow sizes are. Hervana is a gorgeous color; I'm not sure if Benefit products work on me otherwise I'd pick it up in a heartbeat. I haven't planned for this yet, but I'll probably pick up a UDPP for swatches, plus some Urban Decay eyeshadow singles. And most maybe a NARS eyeshadow or lippie and some Illamasqua blush. And maybe some synthetic Sephora Pro brushes

  9. I have the Armani blush in 10.. It's gives such a beautiful pink mauvey glow to the cheeks.. Really beautiful.. And the shimmers in it look amazing on the skin.. They just give a nice sheen rather than looking like actual shimmers.. Definitely worth the investment.. I'd skip Hervana though if I were you.. It seems ordinary and there are so many more beautiful pink blushes out there..
    NARS mykonos I also have and completed forgotten about! It'll be a great winter shade! I don't find it to be as long lasting as my other cream shadows.. But it's not so bad..
    I'm waiting for the Giorgio Armani Maestro Foundation and concealer.. Really wanna try those!

  10. oh good, i'm not the only makeup junkie itching for the F&F sale. :) i made a shopping list a few days ago and i plan on getting Clarisonic deep pore brushes, a perfume (trying to narrow this down), Benefit Hoola, LM loose setting powder, a YSL glossy stain (not sure which one), and Becca Moonstone (thanks other commenter for letting me know Becca's available through Sephora again!!). maybes: MUFE Aqua Brow and i'm on the fence about picking up a foundation - there are so many i've heard good things about, i can't decide!


    i'm trying to resist getting more blushes since my collection is growing too much for my storage lol. if i do end up throwing all self control to the wind, i would pick up Nars Deep Throat and Illamasqua Rude and/or Lover

  17. the new Armani foundation and concealer sound amazing i have heard nothing but complete thumbs up reviews!!!
    Glad you like the Armani blush, makes me want it more now!!!
    Hervana yes, I had debated on it. I thought it looked chalky and too cool on the swatch on my hand, but on my face I quite liked the look!!!
    Would you have other light pink blush reccs? I need a replacement for Well Dressed :)
