Time to get shopping—am I right? Six points? Pffft. (Warning: I'm an enabler.)
Who's excited about the upcoming Sephora VIB sale in November? (According to Musings of a Muse, it starts November 4 for VIB Rouge and November 5 for VIB.) Who's conveniently forgetting about their no-buy commitment during that timeframe? Anyone? (*Cough*)
I'm keeping it cool this year. I've added a somewhat embarrassing amount to my already overflowing collection this year, so my list is short—just a very few basics. Here it is:
So maybe spending $23 on a brow brush is a little silly, but I love the look of this brush for two reasons: a) The line is nice and fine. My current brow brush is splayed and gross, so I think a new one will give me cleaner lines. b) The spoolie on the end. I know, I know. I can just clean up and soften my brows with a separate spoolie on the cheap. But when I'm in a hurry in the morning, I don't want to hunt for a spoolie. Plus, my bathroom is tiny. So this brush will be a win!
I already have one of these beauties in Callisto, and I love it. It's soft, buttery, and beautiful. The depth of colour in the shimmer is gorgeous, and it packs a pigment wallop with no fallout. I also love that I can use it wet without wrecking the shadow. I'm thinking at least one more of these needs to come home with me—maybe Subra, a beautiful, deep eggplant. The price, $33 for one shadow, is painful. So the VIB sale is a perfect opportunity to justify the purchase, yes?
Seriously, WHY don't more cosmetic companies do things like this? We all know that I'll never, EVER go through all the eyeshadows I have. So getting a large amount of each individual colour really isn't a priority for me. I'm more about variety than quantity. So a smaller version of a typical Bobbi palette for a fraction of the price? Yes, please. Even though I already have way too many Bobbi palettes, the $42 price tag on this makes it hard to resist.
