Did you get into the Sephora VIB sale? I was half-conscious with the flu, but pulled through just in time to put my 15% discount to great use. Which means I’m one step closer to VIB Rouge status (which means that, as a Beauty Insider, I’ll be eligible for tons o’rewards! #goals). Despite my woozy NyQuil haze, I was clear-eyed enough to close some true gems. Here they are!
Clinique Dramatically Different Gel: Tia swears by the original Dramatically Different Lotion, but my heart belongs to the Gel formulation. I adore its dewy finish and high Paula’s Choice rating. I bought three tubes — pretty sure it’s true love. We’re planning a June wedding. $26.00 for 4.6 oz.
Atelier Cologne set: This collection is so damned original. Yeah, every perfume line has a vanilla, but the lime-soaked Vanille Insensee couldn’t smell further from a cupcake. Rose and patchouli isn’t a novel combination, either, but blended into Rose Anonyme (not pictured), the mix creates a neon strawberry scent. And Orange Sanguine, my personal favorite, is a full-pulp glass of orange juice. Atelier Cologne isn’t available at most Sephoras, but this excellently priced set is available online for $48.
Supergoop! Antioxidant-Infused Sunscreen: I can’t lie to you, SYB Babes; I mostly bought this Goop situation so I could make a conscious uncoupling joke. With SPF 50 and Vitamin C (plus, a totally sheer finish that blends out on all complexions), hopefully this’ll protect my skin for for longer than Gwen and Chris lasted. And at only $13 for 3 oz, it’s a lot cheaper than the divorce will be.
