everything I know about beauty I learned at Sephora
This Spring marks four years of doing events with Sephora in West Edmonton Mall. I have learned so much from the beauty gurus and have become a loyal purchaser of some of these products over and over again since I first learned about them at one of our events. (Join us January 29th!)
1 | Orgasm by NARS – “makes cheeks blush a perfect pinky-peach flush and subtly highlights with accents of golden shimmer. The perennially pleasing, universally flattering shade is again and again a makeup artist and beauty editor favorite.” I first learned of this blush at our very first event in March 2008 and have been using this blush ever since (it lasts years). $29 Cdn
2 | Dry shampoo – Every mom needs a good dry shampoo. Let’s face it, you cannot (nor should you) wash your hair every day. When you are in between washes, a dry shampoo allows you to refresh your style and remove oils. Sephora carries a few dry shampoos – their bestseller is the Oscar Blandi Pronto Invisible (spray) $12 Cdn small bottle. I recommend trying out the smaller size first, as I have tried and disliked several dry shampoos. My favourite, Stila powder can no longer be purchased at Sephora, but I have seen it at select Shoppers Drug Marts that carry the Stila brand.
3 | Bare Minerals by Bare Escentuals – A sceptic at first, when the ladies showed us this product I thought ‘no way is this a mom-solution (you know, fresh in five minutes or less?)’ but I tried it anyway. That was four years ago and I still love the stuff. It’s makeup so pure you can sleep in it. I recommend buying the Get Started kit because it comes with an instructional DVD. $76 and worth every penny.
4 | Clarisonic – a facial brush that makes you feel like you just had a facial every time you wash your face. This is a pricey purchase, but there is also the Olay facial brush available at Wal-mart and Superstore for a fraction of the cost ($35-ish). I recall learning about the Clarisonic at our first Skin Care focused Sephora event in the Winter of 2010 and several moms purchased the product and swear it’s a game-changer. “This is simply the best investment I have ever made for my skin. I noticed a difference in 3 days! LOVE it.” – says JackieQ on the Sephora website. $129 Mia $225 Original
