I’m no stranger to retail therapy. I try to hold myself back, but sometimes it’s just what I WANT RIGHT NOW. Kinda like stress eating! If I was independently wealthy and I could visit a gigantic Sephora right this second, these are the items I’d grab to soothe myself.
Origins Energizing Essentials set because I’ve heard wonderful things about Origins, I’m jonesing for skincare lately, and the sizes in this sampler are pretty generous.
Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche lipstick in “Gingersnap” because that color. I’m also fairly smitten with the idea of Bite Beauty products. Everything is food grade (not that I’m snacking on my lipstick) and they’re supposed to be excellent quality.
tarte Tartelette Tease eyeshadow palette for traveling mostly. If I get the new job I’ve been interviewing for, I’ll be traveling to NYC a few times a year for team meetings and whatnot, so it’d be nice to have a small, trusty eyeshadow palette that covers the day and nighttime bases.
Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer in “Light Warm” because I tried a sample, and it blew my freaking mind. Seriously. I hardly ever find a concealer that super duper impresses me, but this stayed beautifully, brightened my under eyes, and added some extra coverage to my nose where I have a really hard time getting my foundation to stick.
YSL Volupte Tint-In-Oil in “Rose You” even though it’s indulgent and crazy at $32. These oil tints are supposed to be wonderfully hydrating, and I find that I avoid reapplying lipstick throughout the day. Once my initial morning color wears off, I can see something like this being an afternoon go-to.
