Oh, What to Buy?

For my birthday, my boss gave me a gift card to this lovely store:


For fifty dollars!

I have a pretty great boss.

Well, I finally ventured to the Sephora store yesterday to see what I could get. The closest store is about an hour and fifteen minutes from me, so this is the first time I've been able to get over there.

Oh my goodness. They had every beauty product imaginable! My head was swimming with hundreds of shades of eyeshadow, dozens of skin care products, walls of perfumes, bins full of fun beauty stuff!

And for the first time in my life I found myself in a beauty supply store with no idea what to buy.

Any beauty recommendations, Ladies? Any products that I must try?

I eagerly await your responses.

I bought their waterproof eye cover-up and it is some serious stuff! I still have it over a year later because you only need to use a little of it, and it really stays on better than any cover-up I've bought at Target.

Sephora is such a fun store! I love Nars products!

I've only been to Sephora once because, like you, the closest one is about an hour and a half away. I was so overwhelmed when I went in! I didn't know what to do first. haha...I just took my time making my way around the whole store. I wish we had one closer!

Sorry, I guess this comment isn't very helpful since I didn't provide any good recommendations! haha

Oh girl....Sephora is DANGEROUS!!! I honestly try to stay away unless I need something specific. One of my faves is an eyeshadow primer by Urban Decay--they have it in original & a shimmery tint! It's fabulous for keeping eyeshadow on all day & it comes in this fun, genie like tube! Enjoy!

That would be tough! I've never been in there (the closest one is 45 minutes away), but I figure that's a good thing since I hear they're spendy and I'd probably be tempted to buy too much!

I'd probably get like, supplies for applying makeup. Do they sell that stuff there? (Silly question--I'm assuming yes!)

OH man, I get so overwhelmed in that store...I think it's because I find it overwhelming in general to spend SOOO much money on an item as big as a fingernail... hah! I am afraid I don't have very many helpful recommendations, I really want to get a clairsonic mia but those things are like $150 so way above the giftcard amount (i'll be saving my pennies for a looooooong time).

The mall about an hour from here just opened up a Sephora and I can't wait to check it out. I've never been to one but am looking forward to wandering the aisles in awe and wonder. Let us know what you end up buying! :)

I've only been in one once, and I wanted to blow all my money on makeup brushes. So that's what I recommend. Mostly so I can live vicariously through you. :)
