Beauty Insiders: Let Go of Your Dough!

If you're a Sephora Beauty Insider, you should have received this coupon via email last Friday. It's 15% off anything in store and you can use it as many times as you want.

My wedding is exactly 3 weeks away and the combination of wedding photos and warm tropical weather calls for some sweat-proof camera-friendly cosmetics.

Make Up Forever Waterproof Eyebrow Corrector I currently fill in my very light and sparse brows with a matte brown eyeshadow. While it looks natural, it rubs off easily. I read great reviews on this corrector at and decided to take a look in stores. It's extremely pigmented, there are only 3 shades (#2 too light and #3 too dark) and the liquid formula seems like it would take some practice to use. However, I think this may make a really long-lasting base.

Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner Again, great reviews online. I use colored eyeliners as accents but for actual black liners, I use felt-tips exclusively. L'Oreal makes one that is super black and easy to apply but it cracks and flakes. I'm hoping this will do the first two and not the last.

Sephora Ultra Smoothing Primer Yep, great reviews on this one, too! I'm not sure if I really need this so I might ask for a sample first. I've tried a few already and they are either too gunky, watery, or oily. Or maybe I'm just not used to primers yet.

Ralph by Ralph Lauren Roller Pen This brings back memories of high school when everyone wore the same 3 scents: Ralph, Hawaiian Ginger, or Tommy Girl . According to Sephora, Ralph is a blend of sparkling green apple leaves, zesty orange mandarin, charismatic pink magnolia, seductive purple freesia, and soft blue musk. Not sure what "soft blue musk" looks or smells like but all together, this scent reminds me of carefree summers.

Did you get the coupon? Are you planning on taking advantage of this offer?


  1. Ooh yes I got this email too - I love being a Beauty Insider :) I need to go and stock up! By the way I can't believe your wedding is only 3 weeks away...are you nervous?? Must be so exciting! Mine is still months away :)

  2. I feel like I'm way too behind with preparations to be nervous. Lol! I think I'll probably start feeling that way the last week. Hope my hair doesn't fall out from the stress!

    Are you going to post about your wedding plans on the blog? You should! Would love to read about it! :)

  3. I also have very sparse eyebrows that I fill in w/ eyeshadow (Coquette) by MAC, but then I seal it in with Benefit's She Laq and it stays on alllll day! I swear by that stuff!

  4. Damn it I missed this one! I needed it too the destroyer lost/broke/hid my new Stilla eye liner, Mac foundation brush and nude lip liner. Yeah I'm pretty pissed but he claims his innocence. Someone be stealing my make-up!

    Congratulation on the upcoming wedding. Have fun!!!
