I heart Sephora

Wednesday, February 13, 2008

I just got this new catalog in the mail today and I am totally in love. I love Sephora for a multitude of reasons...some of which are:

  • The thought of trying on all of those cosmetics in one place makes my heart pitter patter. (Don't get me wrong, I am no thick makeup kind of girl, I just started wearing eyeshadow this year.) However, this thought also repulses me when I think of all of the scum of the earth that have been trying on the same things merely minutes before I did.

  • The Smells. There is something about the scent of a lot of products in the same place that I love.

  • The names (I have never heard of, or only read about in mags). Since I live in the middle of nowhere, I only get to visit an actual Sephora when I travel to more metropolitan places. I have even been known to schedule an earlier flight on a work trip just so I can go to the local Sehpora.

  • And finally, the design, I mean, just to look at some of the design of these things makes me want to buy them. Here's what I would buy from my local Sephora if I had one near, and if I wasn't trying to be better about my spending, and if I had $1 million dollars and more than 20 minutes to shower and get out the door every morning:

Look at that Tarte lip stuff...that clear gloss somehow magically surrounding the colored product. Do you think it would get all mixed up when my 6 year old decided to squirt it all over?

That Laura Mercier "violet eye color quad"eye shadow is the bomb! I love the reverse embossed violet so much, I might not ever actually use the shadow, just look at it.

I know it is hard to get a good look at the Urban Decay Loose Pigments, but click here and see for yourself how sweet they are. Be sure to scroll down to have a look at all of the color options available. I might need 2 or 10 of them.

Finally, The Laura Geller baked marble eyeshadow is the shedizzle. Again, who would want to actually use that stuff? It looks so good, I kinda want to lick it!

Thanks to Scented Glossy Magazines for bringing on my virtual shoping spree...we all need a few more cosmetics, don't you think?

ps, if you only buy one thing this week, make it the Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion. I don't know what is in this stuff (nor do I want to, I don't think) but it is amazing. It really does keep your shadow on all day long. I never knew stuff like this existed until November. I bought it on impulse, and accidentally lost my first tube, and on said early flight trip, I went back and bought more. For $16, you can easily get that into the "grocery" category of your budget.
