Re: Holiday Savings Event 2022 Shopping Advice Thread: What’s in Your Basket?

Grabbed a few more restocks -

 

Caudalie Vinoperfect Brightening Glycolic Essence 5.0 oz/ 150 mL - I’m not quite out of it, there is still about a third of the bottle left but it’ll be nice to have it ready when it does go empty. 

Supergoop! Daily Dose Vitamin C + SPF 40 Sunscreen Serum PA+++ 1.0 oz/ 30 mL - Brightening plus extra SPF, it’s a no brainer. This is my third repurchase. 

bareMinerals Mineral Veil Talc Free Setting Powder - I use a tinted setting powder in the summer, but I need a translucent one for the next few months.

Great staples, @alexasteph

Re: Holiday Savings Event 2022 Shopping Advice Thread: What’s in Your Basket?

Great products @alexasteph ! I haven’t tried that Supergoop sunscreen but they have really good ones.

Re: Holiday Savings Event 2022 Shopping Advice Thread: What’s in Your Basket?

@alexasteph curious how ‘tingly’ the Caudalie is. I seem to remember you mentioning that you have normal or oily skin awhile ago? 

Re: Holiday Savings Event 2022 Shopping Advice Thread: What’s in Your Basket?

@eshoe I don’t experience any sort of tingling at all. My skin is normal/combo generally. 

Re: Holiday Savings Event 2022 Shopping Advice Thread: What’s in Your Basket?

@eshoe @I have used the Caudalie essence. I like that it’s more affordable than Tatcha or SKII

Re: Holiday Savings Event 2022 Shopping Advice Thread: What’s in Your Basket?

Thank you @SportyGirly125, something in the middle of the road would be optimal..

Re: Holiday Savings Event 2022 Shopping Advice Thread: What’s in Your Basket?

@eshoe @I didn’t find the Caudalie essence to be tingly. 

Re: Holiday Savings Event 2022 Shopping Advice Thread: What’s in Your Basket?

I love the idea of that sunscreen @alexasteph it's not available in my country 😅

It must be good after multiple repurchases 😃

Re: Holiday Savings Event 2022 Shopping Advice Thread: What’s in Your Basket?

I placed another order (final? 🤔😅) because @Buootiful enabled it with a suggestion for a sunscreen that looks pretty good. As I was close to need a replacement, let’s try something new! And as I wanted to have an excuse to get a new shade of GXVE matte liquid lipstick, the approaching holiday season is excuse enough, so appropriate for a red lip 😁.

Saint Jane Beauty Luxury Sun Ritual Pore Smoothing Sunscreen SPF 30 1.7 oz / 50 mL 

GXVE BY GWEN STEFANI I’m Still Here Longwear Clean Matte Liquid Lipstick Tartan 

Re: Holiday Savings Event 2022 Shopping Advice Thread: What’s in Your Basket?

I have that Saint Jane Beauty Luxury Sun Ritual Pore Smoothing Sunscreen SPF 30 1.7 oz / 50 mL on my loves list, @Saradestin ! I have a few other sunscreens I need to use up in the Spring before I buy it, though 

Re: Holiday Savings Event 2022 Shopping Advice Thread: What’s in Your Basket?

I am glad to know it is on your loves list @curlychiquita ! 😃 But it is a good idea to wait until you finish your other spf, so they don’t expire.

Re: Holiday Savings Event 2022 Shopping Advice Thread: What’s in Your Basket?

Re: Holiday Savings Event 2022 Shopping Advice Thread: What’s in Your Basket?

@eshoe @I was sad the SF sunscreen wasn’t for me. 

Re: Holiday Savings Event 2022 Shopping Advice Thread: What’s in Your Basket?

@SportyGirly125 what did you not like about it?

Re: Holiday Savings Event 2022 Shopping Advice Thread: What’s in Your Basket?

@eshoe @It was really runny and didn’t feel that great on my dry combo skin. The LANEIGE Hydro UV Defense Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 50+ 1.6 oz/ 50 mL is still my all time favorite. 

Re: Holiday Savings Event 2022 Shopping Advice Thread: What’s in Your Basket?

Ahh, yes @SportyGirly125, it is surprisingly runny. I have not tried the Laneige, thank you for the recommendation!

Re: Holiday Savings Event 2022 Shopping Advice Thread: What’s in Your Basket?

I will let you know @eshoe ! But after reading what @Buootiful thought about this product I have high hopes! 😃

 so many great things! I’m about to hit VIB Rouge 

Re: Holiday Savings Event 2022 Shopping Advice Thread: What’s in Your Basket?

I like the Sephora Collection brushes, too, @makeupbyjovi

Re: Holiday Savings Event 2022 Shopping Advice Thread: What’s in Your Basket?

The SC pro brushes are so good @makeupbyjovi!
