My Sephora Friends & Family Shopping Purchases & Suggestions.

If you haven't shopped the Sephora Friends & Family event yet, get your order in, as the 20% off discount is up on Monday, November 2nd. I am here with some shopping suggestions.

First, I will show you what I just received in my Sephora.com order. Then I will highlight some other great beauties that I originally had in my shopping basket, but... put back. Even though, I might just place one more small order.

My order contained a few products I use all the time, a few new ones I wanted to try, and I even picked up a few early Holiday gifts.


CLARISONIC Brush Head
- I use my Clarisonic on a daily basis, and replacing the head every three months is a must. I could not pass up the discount on this, so I ordered two.

MAKE UP FOR EVER HD Invisible Cover Concealer - My new favorite concealer, I ordered this in a lighter shade for my fair winter skin.

MAKE UP FOR EVER HD Microfinish Powder - I read so many reviews about this powder and how it gives the best airbrush look to the skin. I finally caved and just after one use, I am sold - love it.

Philosophy Purity Made Simple - Trying out new cleansers is part of my job, but I do use Philosophy's Purity Made Simple Cleanser every night, no matter what else I happen to be testing in the morning. I stocked up and ordered two in the 24 oz. size, as each will last me a good six months.

Smashbox Brow Tech - I first bought this after watching it presented on QVC and have not used anything else on my brows ever since. I have hit pan on the wax side and am almost to the bottom of the brow powder. I use the shade Taupe, which is perfect for my darker brows that I need to "brown" up a bit.

Harajuku Lovers Snow Bunnies Gift Set - My daughter loves these Harajuku Lovers fragrances, and seeing this adorable new set with the Harajuku girls dressed up in cute winter gear, I knew she would love it. I hope I can save this until Christmas to give to her.

Marc Jacobs Lola Solid Perfume Ring - I really wanted this one for myself, but I ordered it for my sister, as she is the fragrance lover. I do love the ring, and if you see it on my finger, know it will be borrowed - and that I was good and stuck to my holiday gifting plan.


Now, for what I didn't get - but seriously wanted. Let me know if you cave (or already caved) on any of these beauties.

Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage - Yes, I did buy the Make Up For Ever HD Concealer that I love, but I wanted to try this out for my hyperpigmentation coverage. Did I really need it? No, I have plenty of products that do cover it, so I painstakingly opted to put this back.

Clarisonic Mia Skin Cleansing System - Like I said, I use my Clarisonic brush every day, and I love this cute smaller sized Mia. It would be perfect for travel, and my daughter. But, even with the discount, I did not need another in my life. At least this time around.

Sephora Brand Deluxe Lash Kit - Black - I am craving thicker, fuller, longer lashes. Who isn't? I thought I would try my hand at false eyelashes and this kit looks handy with the applicator and all, but I opted to try Talika Lipocils Eyelash Conditioning Gel first (review coming soon!).

I hope I helped with some Sephora shopping suggestions. Remember the code: FF2009 is only good until the end of day on November 2nd, so get your shopping done soon.

I also ordered the MUFE HD Microfinish Powder & am thinking of going back for the concealer--I can always use another one! You made great choices! :)
