Learning our A, B, C's: The Sephora BIC Beauty Edition

Hey BIC, we're one week into the new year! Winter break is just about over for a lot of kids with many heading back to the classroom tomorrow (Monday) or soon, if they haven't already started back up. Thought I'd bring back a fun, favorite game from a few years ago with school picking back up. This will be a little lesson in Learning our  A, B, C's: The BIC Beauty Edition.
ABC - Sephora BIC Edition.jpg
 
WHAT ARE WE DOING?:
* Basically, we will be going through the alphabet with beauty products, with the applicable letter being either (1) the first letter in the brand's name or (2) the first letter of the product's name. 
     - For example, for A - A can be for amika Soulfood Nourishing Hair Mask  (A = Amika) or A can be for Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray Jumbo 8.11 oz / 240 mL  (A = All Nigher Spray)
     - The next person will tag a product or brand that begins with B and then the next person will tag a product/brand that begins with C, then D, E, F, .... until we get to Z, and then we start over again! 
 
HOW TO PLAY:
* Look for the most recent comment to the original post
* Take your turn, by hitting "Reply" to original post and replying directly to that  main post (and not to the most recent comment)
* In your reply, be sure to:
    -- tag the product with the hashtag - #<<type name of product>>
    -- tag the person you are replying to with @ + the user name of the most recent comment
* When we get through the alphabet, we'll start over again with "A"
* There will be items repeated, but it would be great if we try to avoid repeating a product on the same page you're on.
* Optional: add a fun fact about the product you're tagging - what do you love about it, or if there was a reason you chose it (other than it being the next letter) - it's a favorite/holy grail product, it's a product you've been wanting to try, etc.
 
TO START:
* I will" reply" to the original / main post and tag a product or brand that begins with the letter A
* The next person will also "reply" to the original / main post but this person will tag a product or brand that begins with the letter B (also, remember to tag me - @itsfi)
* The next person will then also "reply" to the original / main post, but this person will tag a product or brand that begins with the letter C (and remember to tag the person who posted the letter B product / brand)
* We will continue in this way until we get to Z and then the next person will start back with the letter "A", with everyone replying to the original / main post.
 
FYI: Origins of this tag game
Spoiler
The original tag game was created by our amazing @AlexBT, who was gracious and enthusiastic when giving me the okay when I checked in with her about reviving this. Thank you for coming up with this fun and fabulous idea in the first place - it was a blast when you introduced it in 2020 (All Aboard the Tag Train: Play Along), and I'm hoping it will be so again this year. Would love to see you and others on @TeamBIC join in, along with the rest of the beauties on BIC. 
I will start off in a separate reply below – don’t forget to respond by replying to this main post instead of my reply. Here we go!

Those are great W makeup items @cianni! Fenty has some fun highlighters! 

Re: Learning our A, B, C's: The Sephora BIC Beauty Edition

@itsfi admittedly I own a few too many of them! But they are fun and I probably will never part with any of them 😅

Re: Learning our A, B, C's: The Sephora BIC Beauty Edition

lol @cianni! We all have something (and for some of us, a few a lot of somethings) that we won't ever part with. 😂

Re: Learning our A, B, C's: The Sephora BIC Beauty Edition

@Titian06 W is for Weightless Eyeshadow Primer by Rare Beauty.

 

I think I tried this when it first came out, but I can't remember it very well. I need to start taking notes about products I think.

 

 

Rare Beauty by Selena Gomez Weightless Eyeshadow Primer- Always An Optimist Collection 0.10 oz/ 3 mL 

 

Next, up, X...

Re: Learning our A, B, C's: The Sephora BIC Beauty Edition

@PrettyPaint, I've not tried her primer but if it's like the other beauties in her collection, I'm sure it's good. 

 

I hear ya about keeping notes on products - I sometimes end up picking up the same product over again; it's usually one that is just okay. Ugh. Hoping to whittle down my collection of products to the ones I really enjoy through the capsule makeup challenge. That will help me, at least, to identify the really good ones as well as the ones I pass on; I'm taking notes so I guess that's a start. 

Re: Learning our A, B, C's: The Sephora BIC Beauty Edition

@itsfi Oooh, I didn't even see this challenge. I definitely need to check it out!!

Re: Learning our A, B, C's: The Sephora BIC Beauty Edition

Join us @PrettyPaint ❣️ Capsule Makeup Collection Challenge - Beauty Insider Community (sephora.com)

 

It's like a shop your stash / create a makeup capsule in one. All your makeup doesn't have to fit the prompt; it can be as simple as one product you want to try out. Some are doing it weekly, others every other week or whenever a prompt / theme speaks to them. It's been fun to pull things from my collection - both items that I use regularly and like as well as ones that have just sat there for a while. 

Re: Learning our A, B, C's: The Sephora BIC Beauty Edition

What a great idea! @itsfi  ❤️

Re: Learning our A, B, C's: The Sephora BIC Beauty Edition

V is for Juliette Has a Gun Vanilla Vibes 3.4oz/100mL .  Speaking of vanilla scents, this is my favorite.

 

W is for...

Re: Learning our A, B, C's: The Sephora BIC Beauty Edition

Ohhhhh, your favorite, you say @Titian06? I do love the packaging - it's so pretty! Off to go look up the notes (even though I have no business picking up another fragrance, lol)

Re: Learning our A, B, C's: The Sephora BIC Beauty Edition

@Titian06  This sounds like such a great scent!

Re: Learning our A, B, C's: The Sephora BIC Beauty Edition

Oooh I feel the need to smell this one now @Titian06. All this vanilla talk is getting to me. 😉 I love a good yummy vanilla!

Re: Learning our A, B, C's: The Sephora BIC Beauty Edition

@CynthieLu , T is for Touchland Power Mist Hydrating Hand Sanitizer Vanilla Blossom . When I broke my finger last year this product literally saved me. I only had one functional hand and I was extremely uncomfortable. The scent is good enough that occasionally I even spray it like a body spray even though it is not specified . U is up next.

Re: Learning our A, B, C's: The Sephora BIC Beauty Edition

This sounds great @Loretta55  I really want to get one I’m just not sure where to go!

Re: Learning our A, B, C's: The Sephora BIC Beauty Edition

I took my chances purchasing the vanilla blossom scent @Georgiiiaaa and I really enjoyed it. Unfortunately I have not seen any of the scents available to test but you can purchase them at either Sephora or Ulta in the states. Unfortunately I have heard that they are not available for purchase in Canada. Perhaps if you go to Touchland website you might be able to find a way to purchase them.

Re: Learning our A, B, C's: The Sephora BIC Beauty Edition

Oooh I only hear good things about Touchland @Loretta55. 🤩 (I love Vanilla too! 😉)

Re: Learning our A, B, C's: The Sephora BIC Beauty Edition

Hopefully you will be able to purchase this in Canada soon @CynthieLu. My coworkers enjoy a quick spritz of this especially during cold and flu season.

Re: Learning our A, B, C's: The Sephora BIC Beauty Edition

From your lips. @Loretta55 😉 I would love to see so many things make thier way to us. It would be a dream to go on a shopping trip to Sephora in the States. 🤩🤩🤩

Re: Learning our A, B, C's: The Sephora BIC Beauty Edition

I’m not sure how close to the border you live but when my son worked in Toronto he would regularly do his shopping in the Buffalo area @CynthieLu

Re: Learning our A, B, C's: The Sephora BIC Beauty Edition

I can't regretfully but it's a fun dream too have. @Loretta55 😊

 

Ooh your son lived in Toronto? That's a huge city! Did you ever get too visit? Hopefully not in the winter lol. 😉

Re: Learning our A, B, C's: The Sephora BIC Beauty Edition

Believe it or not the temperatures are similar in NJ to Toronto @CynthieLu. I did visit a couple of times and I always enjoyed myself. We did not leave Toronto during my visits and we even found a French restaurant that had the best onion soup that I could remember.
