Sephora Make-Up Shopping

Sephora is the devil when you're shopping on a budget, no? I want one of everything in there! I braved my shopaholicism and went to Sephora with a girlfriend this past weekend. I went for eyeliner and came back with some other goodies. They were all under budget, though. :)

I got the eyeliner I went for (Makeup Forever Aqua Eyes eyeliner in Black), new lip gloss (Korres - cherry), and a LORAC multi-plantinum palatte. I also got a free sample of some Sephora body cream in coconut, which smells delish!

Here's a peek under the covers.

And a closer look at the palette. I was torn between getting this palette and the other LORAC palatte, but the guy at the store pointed out that since I already have the Croc palette, I already have plenty of neutrals, so the platinum would be more fun.

Since I spent so much at Sephora, I decided to try to get as little as possible in the clothes department. I ended up just getting this adorable tank top for around $13.

Here's a closer look at the floral neckline. I love this part!

Have you gotten any good goodies lately? Are you shopping as much as you used to?

I'm too lazy to dress and get out to shop.

It's a good thing.

But when I visit friends in Ontario and am alone without BF, I tend to shop it up :)

I love Sephora & there are 2 near where I work. I went in there the other day because if you are on their mailing list, you can get a freebie when it's near your birthday. I got 3 free sample size Sephora lipglosses. Last month I also got that coconut body butter you have. Let me tell you it is great for dry feet or skin. I love it. Its very rich and smells great. Those are the only goodies I got because I'm really scrimping in these tough times. Hubby's hours were cut in half so necessities come first. That makes freebies at Sephora - all the more attractive. I encourage everyone I know to sign up on their email list and their "points card".

Meant to say in my previous comment, love your blog! I am a shopaholic too. Shoes, makeup, accessories and sweaters are my biggest obsessions. In summer, sweaters will change to cute short-sleeve tops and camis! :-) Did I see that you make jewelry too? Very cool!

Sephora is a dangerous place. I am obsessed with Stila Lash Visor Mascara, their lip plumper and the awesome pencil that is eyeshadow, liner and a smudger in one.

I almost bought Sephora's Blockbuster palette at Christmastime...you know, the $48 one? It is so hard to go in there and only get one thing, isn't it? I try to keep my spending in check too what with the economy but sure is hard!

Hi, I am new to blogging (about a week into it) and am getting around 150 hits a day. I was talking to a long time follower and contributer of yours here and she said that yall are great about doing reciprical lilnks. I have to first say that I absolutely love your site. (I do some Indian looks too, I LOVE Indian clothing and makeup - I actually sell sari's salwar kameez etc at 75% off) anyways It;s amazing and I would be honored to have a link on your site. It would be a fantastic help to me as a single mother who doesnt have the finance to do any other kind of advertising. Please let me know if you would be willing to do that.

I would greatly appreciate it,

Holly Hollon




(they are both the same but I would like both to have traffice, however fully understand if you can only link one.) Please let me know if you can and will, then I will link to you as well. Thanks again.

I've been trying to NOT go shopping. However, its easier said than done. My last big purchase was my GZ pumps which I got on the cheap. I might head to the outlets tomorrow - Stuart Weitzman is having a sale.

YES! Sephora is the DEVIL, and it's on almost as many street corners here as Starbucks, which makes it very dangerous indeed! That Makeup Forever eyeliner is the best in the business, in my opinion, too :) That eye palette is fabulous for your coloring (and how pretty is that casing!). Fashion week is killing me, but I thought I'd pay you a quick visit. Any new jewelry designs coming up?

Cute shirt!

Way to stay under budget as well. I fail miserably at it :P

I love that glistening palate! It's great and the colors inside are even better! I recently got an awesome makeup case (yep, I'm a makeup-aholic)
I think it deserves a few Sephora goodies!

If I could go anywhere to get goodies right now, I'd travel to London, a true shopaholic and fashionista's dream! http://tinyurl.com/aakqus

It is so hard to walk into Sephora and not spend a jillion dollars. I'm impressed you were able to stay in your budget! :) And that tank top is adorable...where did you get it?

I also wanted to say that I love your blog! As a fellow shopaholic, I have a serious weakness for shoes and jewelry, in particular. I'm also getting into fair trade jewelry - have you ever looked into that? I just found a great site that has some gorgeous stuff: http://www.theandeancollection.com
You should check it out!
But anyway, awesome blog!

You can get much better prices at http://www.etreemarket.com, I just learnt about that website and specially when it comes to perfumes, they always beat Sephora, so not bad to save some bucks these days !!!!
