Top Ten Sephora VIB Sale Recommendations

It's that time again. I'm not sure of the dates as yet but one major thing has changed: Sephora no longer ships to commercial addresses 😑I discovered this recently after two of my orders were cancelled. Their customer service said it is something they were cracking down on since late July. Stupse. Sephora clearly ain't care about those of us who have to use mail forwarders. Soooooo yeah...less hauls for me in the future which I am annoyed about. More money for Beautylish den *insert Kanye shrug*

Regular readers have seen my wish list posts every time the sale is approaching. I love watching these types of videos on YouTube so I always want to throw my hat in the ring. There are a couple recommendation posts on this blog as well but this year I wanted to narrow it down to my top ten. Now, of course they're plenty favourites I'd like to mention but in efforts to make this concise...

Lip Product Declutter

This is just your ever-so-often reminder to go through your collection and get rid of anything that smells off or whatever you know you're not going to use. I'd encourage you to also have a little swatch party to remind yourself of what's in your collection. #LipSwatchWeek, while costly, forces me to go through products and at the end I determine what I trash or pass on 😊

Here's what left the fold recently:

'Lolita II', 'Mother' and 'Roxy' from the Kat Von D'Strange Obsession' and 'Untouchable' from Lonely Planet Cosmetics (now called Atomic Makeup NYC)'Ribbon' from Colour Pop'Envious', 'Infamous' and 'Irresistible' from Estee Lauder and 'Ex-girlfriend', 'Whirl' and '5C' lip liners (They're in #TheMarketplace if you're interested πŸ˜‰). 'Irresistible' was the only thing I had to throw away from the list above. Additionally...

Totally sad to see my beloved Butter…

Mask Monday | Tatcha Violet-C Radiance Mask

How great are those lil coupons that Sephora has? Well this is how I happened upon this sample.

From their website -

"What it is:
A creamy anti-aging mask packed with Japanese beautyberry, 2 types of Vitamin C and AHAs from 7 fruits that unveils softer, glowing skin.

Why it's different:
This creamy rinse-off treatment mask features two types of Vitamin C: a water-soluble vitamin C derivative that absorbs quickly for an immediate glow and an oil-soluble vitamin C derivative that remains in skin longer, providing antioxidant protection from UV damage for brighter, more even toned skin over time.

The mask is also powered by the Japanese beautyberry, a glossy purple superfruit rich in antioxidants that was found to stabilize Vitamin C, maximizing its effectiveness.

A gentle 10 percent AHA complex of seven fruits removes debris and the buildup of dead skin cells to visibly improve skin texture and support the production of new skin cells.

Tatcha's signature trio of Japanese anti-agi…

Happy Birthday To Me!

Good morning fine people! πŸ˜€

October 2 is gone but the birthday celebrations must continue. As far as this blog goes that means...well #TeamModen loves to give back.

There are some similarities between this and previous years' giveaways: it's the same number of products in the prize and it's a sampling of my favourites.

There are also a few differences:
I really like the BeautyLish Lucky Bag, which is inspired by the Japanese New Year tradition, model so I'm not disclosing the contents of the prize. I mean, the picture gives most of it away πŸ˜‘ Does this count as a trust exercise?😳This time the giveaway is open internationally, andTo enter you must complete this survey. The giveaway will close on November 3 at midnight. The winner will be chosen via and notified via email.
Good luck!
