Retail Therapy: Current Craves From The Web

All of this week’s current craves are from Sephora, where if I were shopping on someone else’s dime–this is what I would buy right now.  Because heaven knows we all need a little retail therapy!  Let’s go imaginary shopping, shall we?

philosophy Miracle Worker Miraculous Anti-aging Retinoid Pads and Solution — I love a lot of products from the philosophy line and their skincare is pretty top-notch for being on the more affordable side.  It looks like you’re supposed to moisten the pads with the retinoid solution and then apply to help combat discolorations and wrinkles.  Getting more healthy radiance is always a good thing!

Benefit Stay Don’t Stray — This is supposed to be a primer for both eyeshadow AND concealer.  You know how I love multi-tasking products, they save time, space, and money.

Vera Wang Glam Princess — I loved Rock Princess to death, and now just the bottle of Glam Princess alone makes me want to check it out!  When looking at the notes in this, I was lured in by the description of guava, juicy pear, liquid honey, and marshmallow “creating sweet depth”.  Note to self: must ask for a sample!

NARS Orgasm Illuminator — I have to ask, WHY didn’t they make this sooner?  It sounds like a dream!  The original Orgasm blush will go down in makeup history, I’m totally convinced.  It’s one of those blushes that almost everyone can wear. (personally, I’ve never known anyone to turn it down)  It only makes sense to actually have a luminizer in the same peachy-golden shade.  Does anyone know if this has more of a liquid texture, or is it a cream?  I bet this would be killer if I put a little bit into a liquid foundation.

Stila One Step Makeup Foundation — Previously only available in the Stila Makeup Player, this is a one-step primer, concealer, foundation, and powder in one…almost sounds too good to be true!  If anyone has tried it, please let me know!  It’s available in eight shades by the way, so I love that there’s something for everyone.

Please share if you have any experience with these new products!

    OK, I am a HUGE fan of Benefit’s F. Y. Eye (I’ve used it off and on for probably 10 years now) so I cannot WAIT to see what they’ve done with this new primer. I wouldn’t have even known they HAD a new primer if it weren’t for this post. So please tell me you’re going to get/review it? Please? lol. xo

    Trust me R, if I get my hands on this…I’ll be tearing open the box!

    I did a review of the NARS Orgasm Illuminator on my blog. It’s super pretty and is more of a liquid texture.
