We Heart Sephora

So, we both made some Sephora orders in the past month or so…

bijou indulged in another line of foreign prestige skincare, this time from Hungary:

And while birdie stocked up on brush heads for her new Clarisonic, she also took advantage of a stellar skincare sample pack offer:
July Sephora Order
Order overview (no math, sorry! I don’t have as guilty a conscience as bijou does, I guess…)
– Clarisonic brush heads – just an excuse to get the skincare sampler, really. But I’ll put these to good use, for sure!
– Sephora pearl mask – LOVE these masks!! The mattifying green tea one is fabulous, and I have high hopes for this one as well.
– Order Samples: BB Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil Shampoo and Conditioner (LOVE), Guerlain Lingerie de Peau foundation (ok, not as good as I’d hoped for), Becca Matte Primer (haven’t tried yet, but this oily-skinned girl has high hopes).

Skincare Sampler – huzzah!
Fresh Black Tea Instant Perfecting Mask (love love LOVE LOVE)
Bliss “That’s Incredi-peel” (haven’t tried yet)
Bliss Micro Magic (haven’t tried yet)
Clinque Moisture Surge Overnight Mask (LOVE)
Kate Somerville ExfoliKate (have used before and love)
GlamGlow BrightMud Eye Treatment (nice, I suppose – not sure it did much for me, but I don’t have undereye issues)
Lancome Visionnaire 1 Minute Blur (I like it, but not any more than other, much less expensive, blur products that I’ve tried)
Algenist Algae Mask (okay, wouldn’t buy a full sized version)
Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Peel (haven’t tried yet)
First Aid Beauty Skin Rescue Purifying Mask with Red Clay (adore, bought the full sized version already!)

How about you? Any Sephora lovers out there? Tell us what you are buying so we can feel better about our Sephora habit, please!

Cheers,
birdie&bijou
