Birthday Beauty Buys
My birthday is coming up soon, and I always take advantage of Sephora’s birthday discount to make the most of my beauty purchases. I’ve written about this before, and I highly recommend using the discount to stock up on supplies. Since my birthday is halfway through the year, my purchases last until the Christmas promotions, another great time to replenish your beauty cabinet.
This year, the gift is a lipstick and mascara set from Makeup Forever that will be great for fall. To fill a few gaps in my product supply, I ordered a second tube of Dior Addict Lip Glow, my new favorite lip product. I also purchased another Caviar Eye Stick Colour in Moonlight by Laura Mercier. These are probably my absolute favorite eye colors because they work really well with my oily skin and are too easy to apply. And because I haven’t updated my blush in a while, I also tried Hourglass’ Ambient Lighting Blush in Ethereal Glow. It is a very subtle blush that adds a light amount of color and glow, and I like the result very much.
From Jo Malone, I also ordered a small bottle of Lime Basil and Mandarin Body and Hand Lotion, as well as the soap in the same fragrance. I first tried this scent right after James was born, and it’s very crisp and fresh. The lime makes it almost masculine, but it’s a lovely fragrance and the lotion is perfect for layering.
Now I’m all stocked up on beauty supplies and I can enjoy them as I celebrate my birthday. Do you use any birthday coupons to treat yourself?
