Top 20 for Spring 2020 | Sephora Sale Recommendations

I'm really conflicted about making this post. On one hand, it's tradition. On the other, we are in a global pandemic and a lot of people have lost their means of income. Added to that, Sephora seems not to be treating all their US staff fairly...and generally things are a mess; do we even need more stuff?

Hannah Louise Poston shared some gems recently about shopping sales in general.


Then I saw Risa Does Makeup's video and agreed with her method.


So here are my top twenty recommendations. Things I would definitely repurchase. Most of them I've mentioned before so check out the links for more information.

  1. I am glad you did this post despite feeling conflicted. We need to maintain a sense of normalcy during this pandemic and once such thing is sticking to a routine...so thank you for doing this post. Yes I can see you are a fan of Youth To The People lol. Do you prefer the Kiehl's lip mask to the Laneige one?

    1. I greatly appreciate your sentiments :)
      Yeah the Kiehl's is thicker and therefore more moisturizing.

Sampled Out | Perfumes

Well howdy to a flaming 2020 💣

Ok, let's remain positive and do what we have to to beat this thing.


If you're looking for a brief escape from the onslaught of bad news, #nojudgementzone here. Let me hop back into this blogging thing for a much needed source of distraction and hopefully; a lil product information.

We've never really talked about perfumes before so let's do that:


Maison Margiela REPLICA 'Dancing On The Moon' 0.04 fl. oz.

Description: "Dancing On The Moon is an invitation to an extraterrestrial escape.
The fragrance delicately combines a bouquet of white flowers with a soft mineral side.
White Jasmine flower is lifted by aldehydes and moonflower notes.
As the perfume evolves, the warmer notes of ambergris, musk and vanilla emerge.

Feel the weightlessness of your body slip away from reality.
Your ethereal moves cast pale shadows on the lunar landscape.
A gracious defiance.

This bright Eau de Parfum is part of the Replica Fantasies Collection.

If you're an avid YouTube watcher you've probably heard about these products. Both brands blew up on the skincare seen in short order as expensive, but effective. If you're like me you quickly began to wonder: which is better? Short answer: it depends.


Long answer...

I've mentioned Good Genes a few times before on the blog. This 'all-in-one lactic acid treatment' is raved about by the likes of Stephanie Nicole and Caroline Hirons.

From the box: "Deeply exfoliates the dull surface of the skin for clarity, radiance, and younger-looking skin. Visibly brightens the appearance of age spots and discolorations. Instantly plumps the look of fine lines and wrinkles in 3 minutes*

*Clinically tested and proven to significantly improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles in 3 minutes. Results obtained via profilometry analysis.
