I don't even want to get into the frustration this sale caused me but long story short, their international checkout was done for two of the four days and customer service was awful. The bad service and buggy website aside, I managed to pick up some NARS and REN bits in the end for a solid 20% off.
I've heard plenty of people talk about the NARS NARSissist Eyeshadow Palette, some with good reviews and some with not so good reviews. The mixed opinions got me sitting on the fence for quite some time but after being incredibly impressed by the NARS And God Created The Woman palette and a couple of duos I decided to take a plunge and give this fifteen shade palette a go.
Of course, I just couldn't stop at one NARS product. The ongoing hype around the NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencils just had me too curious to know just how good they are. Having tried the shade Dragon Girl in stores before, and falling in love with it, I decided it was a good time to finally add it to my growing stash of lip products. I'm sure it'll be a good holiday pick as it's just a gorgeous, bold red.
To remedy my ongoing struggle with pigmentation and scarring from blemishes, I decided to take advantage of the discount and finally try out the REN Resurfacing AHA Concentrate. It's full of good reviews so I have high hopes for this product. You can trust that I will report back on it. REN is definitely a brand I've always had my eyes on but have yet to try more of their products. Their ClearCalm 3 Clarifying Clay Cleanser is a joy to use on my blemish prone skin, in case you're looking for a new cleanser.
With a handful of points, I redeemed 100 points for the Formula X by Sephora Nail Polish in A+ and another 100 points for the Clinique Lash Power Feathering Mascara. Who doesn't love minis? Of course with online orders comes sample sachets. Having placed two separate orders, I accumulated quite the handful of samples from Hourglass, Urban Decay, Fresh, Clean, Dr Jart+, and Cartier.
I do appreciate a good bi-annual Sephora sale. Did you pick anything up this time around?
