Sephora Day

On the heels of asking all of you if I post too much, here I am with a second post today! haha! I just got so excited that I wanted to share these new polishes I picked up today. I think I tweeted earlier that I was going to go scope out all the drugstore deals so I went to Walgreens and Rite-Aid because I wanted to see if I could find those WNW Halloween polishes. Alas, I didn’t find them. Feeling sad and dejected, I went to one of my favorite places:

And I feel super deluxe lucky that my Sephora has a MUFE boutique!! I’m spoiled, I know.

So the reason why I am posting today again is because I picked up two gorgeous polishes that I had not even heard about. Being the Sephwhora that I am, I can’t believe these flew under my radar. Are you ready for awesomeness?

This beauty is the Sephora + Pantone Universe Jewel Lacquer in Parachute Purple. I don’t even have the words to describe it right now.

I only picked up two of the colors because I wanted to try them out first before buying a few of the other colors that looked interesting. These are the two colors I got:

I was also really excited about their latest 500 pt perk so I ended up getting two. If you think about it, I had to spend $1,000 dollars to get these since each dollar is worth 1 point. lol

I usually think that their perks are lame and worthless so when something good comes around, I make sure to stock up. These are full-size tubes of Benefit Porefessional!!!

So what do you think about Parachute Purple? I can’t want to try Reflecting Pond. Are you going to check these out at Sephora?

    1. The formula is really great. It is super pigmented and goes on smoothly. I've only tried Parachute Purple so far. The only thing I'm noticing is that it doesn't dry super shinny even with Seche! It's a little weird.

  1. So effing gorgeous! I just realized I was looking at these on sephoras site last night. Thanks for the super quick swatch!

    1. I hadn't even heard of them! I swear I probably looked insane when I saw the display. I went in thinking I was going to get Illamasqua Aorta and the 500pt perk, but these were way too tempting.

  2. one of the things I regret the most of my trip to Chicago was that I didn't goto Sephora. I LOVE Sephora. I still remember, we were walking like SUPER fast in State Street, and my eyes captured the famous white letters over the black background SEPHORA. I tried to stop, but the rain was falling, and we had too many bags in our hands, and a new suitcase because we didn't have enough space on the ones we bought.. So I tried to stop.. and my husband said the most hurtful words for a shopaholic like me: WE ARE NOT STOPPING AT SEPHORA. =:::::::::::::::::::::(

    i loved the blueee.. i can't wait to see the swatch.!

    1. Oooohhh! That is so sad. 🙁 I probably would have cried. lol Did you end up getting a lot of polishes? Any time I would travel, I would pack like a bum just so I had enough room in my bags to bring back tons of crap. I remember you said you were going to buy some things to sell back home so I imagine you had tons of luggage!

      1. We did have a lot of luggage. I sold almost everything I bought.. and I didn't buy too many polishes, but the polish bag weighted about 8 pounds. I wrote an entry on my blog of my new products..!! and I just ordered the BM plates.. I didn't have much time, and it took too long to find bath & body works..!! I bought like 50 small hand sanitizers.. every body love hand sanitizers it was a perfect present.

        1. OOhh…I'm going to have to go check out your entry! 🙂 I love B&BW…they always have the most perfect present ideas. I get all my candles there.

    1. Ahhh…I know. I am so lucky when it comes to the stores in my area. When I lived in Paris, I lived near La Madeleine in the 8th so I had tons of stores around me too. Ahhh…I could have shopped all day. hahaha…and I practically did. You should have seen my luggage when I came back home!

    1. Hehehe…thank you! I guess I am taking advantage of the fact that I have some free time now to post my heart out. 🙂 I used to only shop at Sephora for years because they had such great perks. I think that lately they have fallen by the wayside in that respect so I started shopping at Ulta as well. I like that I can get drugstore items at Ulta but I continue to buy my higher-end stuff at Sephora for the points.

    1. I know! I have one of the biggest malls in the world near me so I can pretty much get anything. I love the MUFE boutique. I think only 3 Sephoras in the US have them so I definitely feel lucky!

  5. OH, SHIT, I JUST LOOKED THESE UP ONLINE WHY WHY WHY? I want them all. ALL, I say!
    I went on the WnW hunt last year and scored the tombstone I wanted, the black with orange glitter. Is it still untried? Yep! *hangs head in shame*
    Sephwhora = awesome. I want to go get the Nails Inc. sprinkles polish that I want (they were out last week), but now I'm like, hmm, I should get back-ups of my primer, mascara, and primer while I'm there, plus now I want all of these…*sigh*…
    I like the photo collage a lot!

    1. I am still shocked that I hadn't hear about these polishes. Now I definitely have to get a couple of the others. Are yo a VIB? If you are, they are giving double points this week. I'm going to stock up. lol I really want the tombstone polishes but I don't know if they are exclusive to certain drugstores. I can usually find them so I won't despair…I'm sure they are just rolling out. So yes: hit Sephora!! Hit 'em good! After all, it's still August…still your b-day month. 😀

  6. Wow, so pretty! I wish I had a Sephora store near me! I get so sick of paying shipping (or purposely ordering more than $50 so I get free shipping!). I'll have to see if these are online because they are gorgeous.

  9. I do the same thing….always order $50 for the free shipping. Online usually gets the stuff first so that's kind of annoying. You should definitely be able to get these online.

  11. I've been seeing these around (on blogs not in rural Montana) and have been wondering where they came from! The one you're wearing here looks really pretty and the other looks like its gonna be awesome too. Are they super duper tiny amounts of polish or does the bottle just look that way? Also how much were they? I still want those sprinkle matte glitter polishes but considering I'm always like "I want that" and never get them- I think we know how that will go. :-/ Good finds tho! 🙂

    1. LOL@rural Montana. They are pretty small but they are $9 for it's not super painful. You know what's bogus? On their website, Sephora lists them as .5oz and they are actually .37oz. WTF?? If someone orders them online thinking they are getting a "full size" polish and they get these tiny polishes, they are going to be pissed. Hell, I would be.
