Something new you're wanting to try?

Hey there, my lovely guys and gals!


With the move into the Spring and the New Year, that means tons of brands and lines are launching out new promos and products! I love checking in and seeing all the new things featured on the Sephora front page.


What I wanted to know is, what are you looking to possibly try or consider trying? It doesn't necessarily have to be a new item, maybe something you've had your eye on for a while or something you're tentative on but decided to take the plunge!


I for one have been eyeballing the Too Faced Sweethearts Perfect Flush Blush!

Too Faced - Sweethearts Perfect Flush Blush


I'm not even going to deny it, I'm a sucker for pretty and unique packaging and design and this blush just takes the cake! It's so cute and sweet, it reminds me of candy and chocolate boxes around Valentine's Day. Though I'm at no shortage of blushes, this one is just so, so, so eye catching, I can see it on my vanity now!


I'll probably go into my local Sephora today and swatch it and check it out in person before making any decisions, but again, to all those in the Sephora and Beauty Talk world, what are you wanting to try?

Re: Something new you're wanting to try?

One of my biggest regrets too! I see people posting about the true blood cheek stain and I'm like mannn, why didn't I take the plunge when I had the chance! Agh, the things I'd do for that!!

Re: Something new you're wanting to try?

I know!!!! The shimmer aspect of it was just so gorgeous!!!! Plus it smelled divine!

Re: Something new you're wanting to try?

I used Josie Maran's Argan Oil, and loved it- but not the price! I ended up finding a 100% pure organic moroccan oil from another brand at whole foods (also available on amazon, it is called "acure" but there are others), for only $15. I think this is something great to try, but you can find a better value than Jose Maran's, then you can try more products with what you have to spend! Smiley Happy

Thanks for sharing!


Oh boy, telling us to save money so we can spend more! Smiley Tongue

Re: Something new you're wanting to try?

I can justify anything, haha! Smiley Happy

Re: Something new you're wanting to try?

SK-II. I've been SO curious about it, but no store seems to carry it (no samples) and they are so ridiculously expensive. If it's worth its weight in gold like all the celebrity said, then I might purchase some for my mom after testing out the texture/fragrance etc on my skin first.


I have been eyeing the Lorac Mint Edition pallete. I was obsessed with Unzipped, until I realized they are all pink/mauve toned and I'm not a fan of that. So I'll have to go see this instore.

LORAC - Mint Edition Palette


That blush is so adorable!!! I don't even wear blush/bronzer/highlighter but I couldn't resist buying Korres Contouring Trio when it was on sale as a kit.

Korres - Magic Light Contouring Trio

I didn't see that blush in Sephora's What's New section., but that's a whole another "feedback" essay. =(

Re: Something new you're wanting to try?

One of my friends got to swatch the Lorac Mint palette and says it's fabulous! I'm a personal fan of mint and greens in general. I really like the texture of the shadows Lorac puts out, I think their shadows are really underrated!


That Contouring Trio looks really nice! It looks to be more on the matte side or at least a soft/satin finish, what does it have? Those colors look very muted and wearable, definitely perfect for natural wear!

Re: Something new you're wanting to try?

I looooooove Lorac eye shadows, they have the most incredibly gorgeous textures and super pigmented to boot.  I was so sad when the Lorac display at my local Sephora was removed!

Re: Something new you're wanting to try?

Oh no! Hopefully they were just moving it to a new spot in the store or changing out promos and banners!

Re: Something new you're wanting to try?

I like the look but the point is I don't need another eyeshadow pallete at all. I have 3 eyeshadow pallete (2 UD Deluxe cuz 2nd one was on sale for $19 and a True Blood Tarte one). I tend to go for eyeliner in the winter and eyeshadow in the summer. I'm resolving not to buy it until I AT LEAST hit the pan on one of the shadows for one of my pallete. Tho I worry this will run out by then.


The contouring trio I got (above) was the bronzer version, which have a softer/more matte texture than the blush so I've heard. The bronzer is warm with tiny gold shimmer, but the thing is I don't ever wear blush/bronzer/highlighter and now I have 1/2/1 of each. 0.0
