BEST OF SEPHORA 2008! SATURDAYS AT SEPHORA!

BEST OF SEPHORA 2008! SATURDAYS AT SEPHORA!

Every Saturday, Kate brings you the best of Sephora as only an insider can!

We’ll its all over and I’m finally done. I took my last final about four hours ago. I had brunch with my best friend and our favorite professor. I finished college! It’s a little sad. But I am on to bigger and better things. I’m going to take over the world, one lip gloss lover at a time! So I’m very sorry about my absenteeism the last couple weeks. I just had to get all my ducks in a row. Finish and defend my thesis. Take my exams. Pack up my stuff. (Where does it all COME FROM?) So I’ve barely even had time to surf the internet (that’s a lie…). But they have some super fun new stuff for summer at Sephora. AND voting has also begun for the 2008 Best of Sephora awards!

I am really pleased to see that they have really changed up the nominees this year instead of the same old products. I have a feeling maybe we’ll have some surprise winners this year…I guess we’ll have to wait until a little later in the year to find out. But here’s some of the interesting ones!

Best Concealers: Makeup Forever Full Cover, The Balm TimeBalm, Bare Escentuals Bisque, Benefit Boi-ing, and Amazing Concealer. The TimeBalm is my personal favorite, but I’ve never tried that Makeup Forever one. I hear its good. Im not fans of B.E. or Amazing anyhow. Go Time Balm!

Also in the Foundation category I was surprised to see the Dior AirFlash aerosol spray among Bare Escentuals (duh), Makeup Forever Mat Velvet, Philosophy the Supernatural and Smashbox High Definition. I have a can of the DiorFlash. I use it sparingly because its $60. But it gives the most amazing, airbrush finish. You skin looks so flawless!

I’ve also had a change of heart in Primers in the past year. I was of course a devotee of the oldie-but-goodie Smashbox Photofinish, but then I fell in love with Laura Mercier (not a nominee). But late in the year Laura Gellar Spackle has come to be my favorite. It just makes your makeup STAY! Its awesome! I can leave out the yucky fake-raspberry scent of Benefit’s “That Gal” And the “oil slick” feel of Perfekt. I vote for Laura Gellar!

The Tress Tamer category is interesting as well because they have three prodcuts (Fekkai Glossing Cream, Phytodefristant, and Ojon Elastic Spray) against appliances — the GHD iron and the T3 hairdryer. I don’t really understand why the lumped them all together. I’m loyal to my Fekkai Glossing Cream but the Phytodefrisant is a relatively recent acquisition. It’s a natural product and it has really made my hair sleeker!

Ladies, go forth, explore the categories, and let’s have a not-so-secret ballot box here!
