Please cue the Sephora Sale Klaxon! As you’re probably aware, the big Sephora Beauty Insider sale kicked off last week for their high-level members and today it’s open for all and sundry. (You have to sign up for a membership if you don’t have one, but if you buy anything at Sephora ever, you probably¬†do already have one.) It’s always fun to discuss what we’re buying, or considering buying. For me, I’m maybe thinking about….buying lipstick again? Is that even possible? (I had dinner with a friend the other night and she had on a great red, and it was just Sephora brand. The price is so much more reasonable than a lot of other lipsticks. Which isn’t to say that I’m not tempted by these Pat McGrath lipsticks, or this beautifully packaged Gucci lip balm. ) I also have to say that Grace Atwood’s post about the Grandelash has made it very tempting to me. And when I signed on to the site, Sephora itself was like HELLO THERE ARE NEW LANEIGE LIP MASKS. I’m also going to stock up, as ever, on Olaplex — I had surgery in August (I’m fine!) and a bunch of hair fell out afterwards and now I feel like I have to¬†really baby it. I always want new shampoo; for example, I am seriously tempted to buy some of Briogeo shampoos because it’s so funny/cute that they look like pressed juices. (And they have great hair masks!) And, finally, I bought this Dr. Jart Grass Color Correcting Treatment last sale and I REALLY like it. You really don’t need to use a lot of it.

It’s also easy to spend a really excessive amount of time in their “mini size” section, to be totally honest. Why are travel-size items so appealing? I don’t NEED a mini rose quartz facial roller! Although it might be a cute stocking stuffer. Also, obviously, this is the time of year when I think it would be wise to buy like…$600 worth of candles. Do you have a candle that smells like “the woods” or “fire” or “wood fire”? I will consider buying this.

So that’s me! Here’s a bunch of OTHER stuff you also might be into, but I’m interested in everyone’s recommendations/shopping carts!

Those aren’t the sale prices — everything is from 10% to 20% off depending on your Sephora Insider level. (Sephora Collection is 30% off.)
