My Sephora Wishlist! (Fall Into Beauty Edition)

My Sephora Wishlist!

I'm gonna keep this one straight and to the point-here are few pretties that I'm lusting after from Sephora!

As if I need another palette! I just can't help but want to add these 3 to my collection:

Laura Mercier Artist's Palette For Eyes ($48) - 12 lovely, warm neutral shadows, hand selected by Laura Mercier herself. The palette itself is quite pretty and comes with a large mirror.

Too Faced Pretty Rebel Eye Shadow Palette ($46) - A gorgeous variety of 10, highly pigmented shadows that range from jewel tones to metallics and that show stopping pink. I don't know what it is about Too Faced, but they sure know how to put together a palette.

Too Faced Love's Sephora Fifteen Years of Beauty Palette ($52) - This one I love for the sheer variety - 10 exclusive shadow colors, bronzers, a primer, blush, and a cute little brush. Plus, it's limited edition! How could I possibly resist that!

Kat Von D Painted Love Lipstick in Homegirl ($19) - This WILL be my first Kat Von D purchase. I saw it just this morning on Instagram and immediately knew that I HAD TO HAVE IT. It's described as a dark, plummy brown and I think it will be the perfect, dramatic fall shade and will look beautiful with my complexion.

Marc Jacobs Beauty Highliner Gel Crayon in Intro (Vert) ($25) - I've heard nothing but FANTASTIC things about just about every product in the Marc Jacobs Beauty line, but my favorite products tend to be for the eye. I have a weakness for eyeliner and when I saw this color in store and swatched it, I knew that it had to be mine. Not only is the color gorgeous {it's described as a mermaid green with shimmer}, the smooth, creamy, long lasting formula is TDF.

Marc Jacobs Beauty Magic Marc'er Precision Pen ($30) - As I've said before, I don't leave the house without black liner, artfully drawn into some form of wing or cat eye fashion. While I'm learning to love soft, creamy pencil liners for everyday wear, my favorites are liquid liner pens. This one {and the new double ended one from Tom Ford} sort of takes my breath away. I have oily lids, so I need something that's going to stay put and not smear down my face or smudge up my contacts. I swatched this early one Saturday morning, then proceeded to wash dishes, do laundry, change diapers, wash my hands, give baths, and wash hair - and at the end of the day, it was still going pretty strong on my hand. Gotta have it!

Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy Noir EDP ($70-$90) - This is another pretty that was pretty much love and first sight, and then I knew it was true love at first whiff! I have affection for all of Juicy Couture's fragrances {except for one, though I can never recall which one it is}, and own most of them in rollerball form {it's a much more economical and reasonable option for a mama like me who wears a different fragrance daily}. But this incarnation's blend of sweet berries and honeysuckle, with sultry sandalwood, combined with the gorgeous, hot pink, metallic bottle, black bow, and crystalline topper makes me want to splurge on at least the 1.7 fl. oz bottle-just so that I can gaze at it on my makeup table.

Caudalie Make-Up Remover Cleansing Water ($14-$28) - Caudalie's Divine Oil may as well be the nectar's of the gods and as much as I love oils, cleansing waters are running at a close second in my heart. Cleansing waters are soap-free and gentle, yet they remove makeup, cleanse and tone the skin all in one simple step. This formula features a fragrance of watermelon, mint leaves, and orange and lemon blossom. Swoon!

Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask To Clear Pores ($16-$24) - I got to try charcoal scrub or mask or something in a recent Ipsy bag and I really liked it, and I've heard swell things about this one {I think from Judy of It's Judy's Life on YouTube}. So I wanna give this one a go. It uses activated charcoal to deep clean your pores, White China clay to absorb environmental toxins, and lecithin to dissolve impurities. It sounds like the perfect thing to keep my sometimes rebellious skin to behave.

Boscia Tsubaki Beauty Oil ($46) - Tsubaki is Japanese for Camellia oil. It's been used for centuries in Japanese beauty rituals to nourish and protect the skin.  Camellia oil is the trick behind the iconic smoothness of traditional geisha and samurai hairstyles. Um... they had me at "beauty oil."

So that's what I'm lusting after lately. I don't know if I'll be able to add of these to my collection, but I'm gonna try! What is on your current wishlist? Any of my selections? My inquiring mind wants to know! Leave a comment below and let me know what you think! Until next time...


  1. Laura Mercer doesn't usually do it for me, but I love this! The colors are right up my brown girl alley. Is it currently available or soon to be released?

    1. It looks fabulous, doesn't it!?! Laura Mercier is actually taking some real strides in being more brown girl friendly; in fact, their new Smooth Finish Powder Foundation is available in 20 shades, many of them suitable for us (I wear shade 18). I'll have a post up regarding it soon! This palette is available at Sephora right now though. You should definitely check it out!


I love to hear from you, so leave a comment, question, or suggestion and stay tuned because I WILL respond! xoxo...
