Dyson Supersonic Holiday Set is always a good idea if you're looking to invest:) they only go on sale during the semi annual sales! Definitely the time to buy! Heads up though they go fast!!

@haleyvvvv I'm interested in Cheekbone Beauty SUSTAIN Lipstick Kéyah (I found out the hard way that I despise bold &/ bright lip colors so idk about Aki, but more reviews will help), & FENTY BEAUTY by Rihanna Resting Peach Face Cream Blush & Mini Gloss Bomb Cream Duo (looks like a perfect & cheaper dupe of my color corrector, and I like peach (color & fruit 🍑 )).

I would love it if you could let me know about your experience with these products (if you end up buying them).

 

Lots of other goodies on your list too! 😊

Re: Holiday Savings Event 2021 Shopping Advice Thread: What’s in Your Basket?

@haleyvvvv  Excellent!  The MUFE lipstick formula is really nice.  I never make my basket up this far before a sale because, well, we know that will probably be emptied before then. lol

Re: Holiday Savings Event 2021 Shopping Advice Thread: What’s in Your Basket?

Brace yourselves for a long scroll of text. 

 

What I am interested in buying:

SEPHORA COLLECTION Triple Action Cleansing Water - Cleanse + Purify - since the sale is 30% of Sephora Collection and I will finish my current cleanser by then, I'm interested in picking this up.

Compared to my current cleanser, the Sephora one:

-has zinc although lower down the list than my current 

-is cheaper (with the sale, even cheaper),

-has fragrance lower down in the ingredient list (my current cleanser has a strong & unpleasant smell),

-has less colorants/PEGs. 

Overall, I'm inclined to buy it and test it out as my current cleanser dries my skin out (even when I put very little of it on my skin) and I occasionally get redness/irritation (I think from the colorants/PEGs, as I never get reactions to fragrance).

 

I'm interested in buying Fenty Skin The Daily Duo Mini Cleanser + Toner Serum Duo  and I heard mixed reviews on it (from not worth it to helped reduce my dark spots). The niacinamide, vitamin C, and toner/essence aspects attract me to this product (fat water toner). 

Did anyone try this before? How was it?

 

I would rather get a sample of Fenty Skin Fat Water Pore-Refining Toner Serum with Niacinamide 5.0 oz/ 150 mL from a Sephora store but not sure if Sephora Canada ( @TeamBIC ) offers samples (and if so, not sure if they offer a sample of this product).

 

Despite my sensitive skin, fragrance & witch hazel are rarely issues for me as I had used products with witch hazel and am currently using a skin product with like 4 different alcohols and a very pungent & gross smell. 

I don't need to buy makeup, maybe in the spring sale.

Hi @Kaurice did you purchase this before & if so, how was your experience with it?

Re: Holiday Savings Event 2021 Shopping Advice Thread: What’s in Your Basket?

Anything Fenty

Re: Holiday Savings Event 2021 Shopping Advice Thread: What’s in Your Basket?

These items are definitely on my list:

Natasha Denona Mini Metropolis Palette & Brush Set 

Shiseido Facial Cotton 165 sheets 

I just know a few more items will fall into my cart as well.  🔮

Re: Holiday Savings Event 2021 Shopping Advice Thread: What’s in Your Basket?

Oh, thank you for reminding! I totally forgot. I am going to get some the Ordinary products.

Re: Holiday Savings Event 2021 Shopping Advice Thread: What’s in Your Basket?

@Edelveys I think TO products are usually not included in the coupons.  I checked at Ulta, b/c who doesn't want to save a couple buck (?!), but I think they are excluded there as well.

Re: Holiday Savings Event 2021 Shopping Advice Thread: What’s in Your Basket?

Definitely wanna get Natasha Denona Retro Eyeshadow Palette and Natasha Denona Contour Sculpting Powder since they dont sell kevyn aucoin anymore I am hoping that is a dupe! Has anyone tried any of these products?

Re: Holiday Savings Event 2021 Shopping Advice Thread: What’s in Your Basket?

@TeamBIC Due to PPE I'm still not wearing much makeup.  So, I think all I need is another Grace Eleyae Slap cap (can't seem to tag it).  I also bought a Kitsch stain pillowcase at Ulta recently, but have yet to try it.  IDK if I will like it, but I also don't know if it will fit on my memory foam pillow.  Luckily, I discovered this one at Sephora: Kitsch King Satin Pillowcase .

Re: Holiday Savings Event 2021 Shopping Advice Thread: What’s in Your Basket?

I have the king size ones. 100% recommend. I love the pillowcases. They overall feel a lot better and it does seem to help my hair and ski.  

Re: Holiday Savings Event 2021 Shopping Advice Thread: What’s in Your Basket?

i would definitely recommend all of the sephora favorites products! there are so many different kits that have something for everybody! you get over 90 dollars worth of products for as little as 25! 

Re: Holiday Savings Event 2021 Shopping Advice Thread: What’s in Your Basket?

Agreed love all of Sephora's products, I'll definitely be stocking up during the sale

Re: Holiday Savings Event 2021 Shopping Advice Thread: What’s in Your Basket?

Oooh, please tell me more about the lamination gel @faeriegirl! Do you forego any sort of brow pencil or pomade in place of this?
