I am so fucking happy that today is Thursday, I literally can’t even. Obviously because tomorrow is Friday and I needed this week to end like, the second Monday started, but also because it’s the start of another Sephora Weekly Wow. Like, guys, I wish I was exaggerating when I say this one is the best one by far and I won’t even feel bad about blowing my entire paycheck in one sitting (#CantStopWontStop), but I’m not exaggerating in the slightest. From a Tarte multi-purpose palette that makes you look like an Amazonian princess and a ~sparkly~ Urban Decay eyeshadow palette to a lip treatment that prevents your lips from looking chapped AF this winter, this is best thing Sephora could ever give us. I’d say start loading your cart now but, if you know what’s good for you, you’re already grabbing your wallet. These will def sell out ASAP, so shop now or forever hold your peace.
1. Tarte Clay Play Face Shaping Palette
This might be a set of 12 eye shadows, but these special neutral and smokey matte shades are good to use for an intense contour anywhere, including your nose if you want people to think you got a nose job or whatever. All of the shades are seriously to die for, because they look amazing on every skin tone. I mean, LOOK at those swatches. Since they’re made with Amazonian clay they will look 100x better than like, regular stuff by making it look natural, crease- and flake-free.
2. Urban Decay Moondust Eyeshadow Palette
Urban Decay’s Moondust palette is everything, in case you haven’t noticed just by looking at it. The eight shades fulfill all of our dreams with one-of-kind colors like Lightyear green and a Galaxy blue-purple-gray-whatever that looks something like my next manicure color. Your go-to smokey eye just got a HELL of a lot better.
3. Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment Sunscreen Spf 15
Behold, the Chapstick you’ve been looking for that works so well, you’ll def never want to lose it again. The award-winning treatment (Did anyone know lip balms got awards? No? Okay, that’s what I thought) protects and smooths your lips instantly by providing much-needed moisture. It protects from sun damage and also offers buildable coverage from 14 different bright shades. Trust me, you’ll want them all.
4. Sephora Collection Smoke Machine Smokey Eye Brush Set
Who doesn’t need new makeup brushes? I mean, it’s not like you actually wash yours anyway. Ain’t nobody got time for th—JK, that’s fucking gross and you should wash them immediately after work today. But if you’re
like me lazy and most definitely not going to wash your brushes after work today, buy this five-piece kit. Each brush allows you to sculpt gorg eyebrows and make killer smokey eyes. Plus, they come in a little pouch, so… new makeup bag? Yes, hi, sign me up.
5. Dr. Brandt Skincare Microdermabrasion Age-Defying Exfoliator
This is basically a miracle exfoliator that clears breakouts, erases scars, and fixes discoloration after the first use. If you’ve used this, you’d know I’m not even exaggerating. It also absorbs excess oil, so like, no more having to buy blotting sheets every week. And it smells like roses, so it’s def worth the splurge.
6. T3 Featherweight Compact Folding Dryer
This petite, lightweight, and v powerful blow-dryer was designed to make all of our fantasies come true, namely, achieving a last-minute blowout on-the-go. The portable blow-dryer is made for styling and speed-drying your hair wherever tf you are by coming with a travel pouch and dual voltage options. Although smaller than usual, it eliminates annoying af flyaways and frizz and still provides salon-worthy results for any hair type. Fucking miracle.
Alright guys, it’s yet another Thirsty Thursday *and* another Sephora Weekly Wow. Lord knows I need to chug six gin and tonics (hold the tonic, pls) and then indulge in some retail therapy, because how else does one “healthily” cope with the recent Kardashian-Jenner baby boom? Yeah, I thought so. Last week’s Weekly Wow wasn’t really all that “wow-ing” tbh so I didn’t fill you guys in. Believe me, you didn’t miss out. BUT, since this week’s Weekly Wow is under $15 again (PRAISE BE) and involves must-have lipsticks and non-glittery highlighter. This is worth a look. Below, I present you this week’s winners, but remember, once these are gone, you’re basically SOL.
1. Make Up For Ever Artist Rouge Lipstick
Known for their insanely smooth application and comfortable wear, these bold lipsticks provide a highly pigmented look unlike any other lipstick you’ve ever tried—and I know that’s saying a lot. Seriously, Make Up For Ever means what it says. The fun, bright colors are made to stay on basically forever without fading, and most importantly, not drying out your lips, because there’s honestly nothing worse than paper mâché mouth.
2. Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick
There’s nothing I love more than a lipstick that also works as a chapstick, because like bobby pins, I literally always lose mine. ALWAYS. This full coverage lipstick hydrates your lips for up to six hours a day (um, amazing) and can be bought in either a matte or shimmer finish. It’s super lightweight, so you’ll probs forget you’re even wearing anything. An added bonus? It’s made with a betch’s fave fruit, avocado.
3. Benefit Watt’s Up! Cream-to-Powder Highlighter
This #flawless, non-glittery-shit-show of a highlighter is everything our dreams are made of. The cream-to-powder formula allows you to apply seamlessly for model-looking cheekbones and easily blend with its attached soft-glow blender. It’s a natural-looking Champagne glow that looks gorge on every skin tone. No wonder why it’s a best-seller for us Sephora addicts.
