Before I embark on my final Christmas shopping trip to finish getting gifts for friends & family, I must admit, I'm thinking about those makeup items I hope to receive on Christmas Day! :) Since I'm usually a bargain shopper, I take opportunities like Christmas and my birthday to ask for those splurge gifts that I'm less likely to go out and buy for myself. Here are a few of the things from Sephora that I hope to get! :)
Laura Geller- Baked Basics
I've heard a lot of good things on YouTube about Laura Geller's baked basics line. She's been on QVC before and I've been so tempted to make a purchase but I thought I'd hold out for Christmas.This set has Balance N Brighten- a color corrective powder foundation- And also Bronze N Brighten- which is said to be able to be used as bronzer, blush, or even eyeshadow. The third product is Blush N Brighten- in an interesting berry shade that is supposed to go on sheer. Plus it all comes with a brush and that cute case. I think it's all mineral makeup.
Smashbox Eyeshadow & Brush Collection
This kit looks like a dream come true for Smashbox eyeshadow lovers like myself. It's 8 different duos, plus some great looking brushes. I have a few trios from this brand- and I LOVE them. They're so pigmented, and I've been wanting to try more. This set seems to have a nice variety of colors, and I know Smashbox's brushes are awesome. Can you imagine the tutorials that could be donee with this set?! Also I think pretty much all of these colors could work for anchoring- nothing too wild & crazy, but still some nice colorful shades.
Smashbox Gift of Glow Collection
In case you couldn't tell, I love Smashbox haha :) This set seemed like a really good value to me. The whole thing costs $37, but it's a $127 value. I'm really excited to try the Flash Powder- it's described as "soft luminous gold"- so I think that will be a really flattering look. As you can see you also get a lip gloss and the waterproof Shadow/liner in Hollywood- a dark warm brown, with the brush to use it with. Isn't that little pouch so cute too? Oh the possibilities....
If Santa is good to me, I'll definitely be posting some reviews and tutorials on these products! Hope everyone is having a great weekend! :)
