Sephora Goodies

I could literally spend hours looking at various makeup products. Whether I'm at Ulta, Sephora, or somewhere else, make up has become my obsession as of late. On Sunday I went to Sephora and dropped a pretty penny on these four items. I have heard several good things about each of the products and decided to give them a whirl.
Perfection Mist Airbrush Foundation: The first impression that I got from this product (from a YouTube video) was not a very good one. The makeup artist trying it on initially was freaked out by the smell and intensity of the spray. But once she got the face fully covered, she was raving about how flawless and lasting the foundation is. I haven't tried this product yet, but I am planning on testing it out this weekend. I decided to get the lightest color (Fair) because I am seriously white. I don't even care it either. I totally rock pale. I hope to review the product as soon as I have time to test it out.

Pro Buffing Brush #62: I plan to use this brush with the airbrush foundation, but I could use it already with my normal makeup if I wanted to. The quality of this brush is seriously amazing. E.L.F. has nothing on Sephora. Obvi the price difference is noticeable too. I still enjoy my cheaper brushes, but this is one that I am so happy I purchased.

Smoothing and Brightening Concealer: I have been using this concealer (Radiant Vanilla) as a highlighter under my eyes and have been pretty impressed by it. Initially, I could not figure out how to make the product come out. The dispenser is one that I hadn't ever used before. But it's as simple (ha) as turning the dial and product comes out. I have been applying it directly to my skin and then buffing it out with Sephora's #58 brush (below).

Pro Precision Foundation Brush #58: This brush blends my concealer to perfection. I absolutely love it. I know it's technically a foundation brush, but I would never use it to apply foundation; only concealer. For foundation, I prefer much larger brushes. Here's what Sephora's website says about the brush: "The synthetic bristles ensure streak-free results and the tapered, wood handle easily fits in your hand for ultimate control." I believe it!

To all my makeup junkies: Have y'all tried these yet? I am specifically curious about the airbrush foundation. I can't wait to try it out this weekend!

  1. I cannot wait to hear if you love that foundation spray! Does it look easy to put on? Faster than regular liquid foundation (not that it really takes me that long to begin with ha).

  4. A few months ago I finally started using a brush to apply my concealer - it makes such a difference in covering silly dark circles! However, the only worthy brush I had was an old foundation brush, sooo... it's just massive and awkward and I'll definitely be looking into this smaller Sephora brush soon instead!! :)

  6. Sephora...Ulta...they are both dangerous places. I just blogged on all my wedding makeup coming from Sephora, it was a pretty penny, but so dang worth it. I rock the ghost look too lol. Does the airbrush foundation feel pretty light?

  7. I've never really spent time in Sephora. We just have a very, very small one stuck inside JC Penney here. I'm sure I could drop some dough in there though. I can't wait to hear how you like the foundation! I've always been curious about airbrush and I want to try one of those buffing brushes. Oh, p.s. I'm TOTALLY pale too. White as a ghost. It took me years to be ok with it, so good for you for rocking it!
