With both Sephora and Ulta running 20% off promotions right now (details in my prior post about their sales), here are the products I can't wait to try at 20% off.
Don't fret if you haven't been lucky enough to score a Sephora Friends & Family code...they usually run their BI/VIB sale shortly after F&F ends on October 30. If you aren't a Beauty Insider, you definitely need to join!!! Do that here, right now, before you do anything else. Same with Ulta Rewards!
Things on My Wishlist
Mally Beauty Volumizing Mascara ($20 at Ulta)
I have heard SUCH amazing things about this. I won't lie, I was introduced to Mally Beauty one night while watching QVC and I got totally hooked on trying this mascara after seeing the models. Of course I don't buy without doing my homework, but this gets really good reviews basically across the board. It has a 3.9 rating on MakeupAlley, which is pretty good!
Dior Diorskin Shimmer Star in Amber Diamond ($45 at Sephora)
I've wanted this highlighter forever, but I cannot bring myself to spend the money on it. For 20% off though, I think I may finally splurge! I grabbed a Dior eyeshadow palette last time around and the quality is so amazing that I'm sure this will be great, too. Besides, Michele1218 can't stop raving about it, and I trust her like no one's business! If you don't watch her channel, you should!
I have naturally curly hair, and I was lucky enough to receive a few DevaCurl products in a Birchbox a few months ago. The No Poo, One Condition, and the Light Defining Gel gave me the most amazing curls with minimal effort. I'd love to get full size bottles. They're $19 each, though, so it's not cheap to buy the whole line. Ulta does have a larger range of the line than Sephora, plus they're doing free gifts with purchase.

Formula X Nail Polishes ($10.50 to $12.50 at Sephora)
I can't lie, I am so intrigued by this new line of polishes! I have about a zillion bottles of polish already, but damn Sephora...I can't help but need to try these, too! They're said to have a gel-like finish, and I'm a total sucker, so I'll probably pick up 2 or 3 shades.
Oscar Blandi Pronto Dry Styling Heat Protect Spray ($23 at Ulta)I use this regularly to protect my hair when I style it with my curling iron. I love the lemon scent and the fact that it dries instantly so there's no wait time between spraying and iron. I've used cheaper oil-based heat sprays, but this one beats them all by a mile. I'm almost out, so I need to repurchase.
Marc Jacobs Lolita Palette ($59 at Sephora)
Just what I need...another brown neutrals palette. I actually had no interest in this until Sarah Victor just had to go and rave about it and do an awesome tutorial. (I mean, what else is new...she's amazing, of course she did another great tutorial!) Now, of course, I HAVE to have it.
I have to be honest, I never really jumped on the Touche Eclat train when it was at full speed a few years ago. I recently got a sample of both of these products with a Sephora order, though, and I'm hooked. I LOVE undereye concealers with a thinner consistency (full post on that coming soon!) and the Touche Eclat is so perfect...creamy, easily blended, and still full-coverage. The foundation is amazing, too. It gave me medium but buildable coverage, lasted all day, and looked so natural. I'm also just a foundation junkie, so I love trying them and purchasing anything that works for me. (My foundation collection is ridiculous. Let me know if you want to see a post on it!)

GlamGlow Gift Sexy Supermud Set ($69 at Sephora)
I actually really only want to try the Supermud mask, but if I'm getting a free Youthmud Tinglexfoliate, why not just try the set? This contains a full size Supermud Clearing Treatment (normally $69) and a .5 oz tub of the Tinglexfoliate, which is normally $19. I'm really not a mask person, but this has my curiosity piqued. Anything that can actually draw dirt out of my pores is something worth considering in my book.
Have you tried any of these products? Should I skip over any of them? What am I missing from my wishlist? What are you wishing for from the sales? Please share!!
