Black Friday Beauty Buys!

 Today was Black Friday, and I’ll admit, I slept in…and it was awesome. I actually don’t mind the whole getting up early and being out with the hustle and bustle, but due to the fact that I’m flying home to SC in 2 days, I don’t exactly have room for any 4 am doorbusters in my carry-on. However, my sister and my mom and I did spend the afternoon at Somerset, and I’ll admit, I missed this mall! There is a nice mall in Charlotte, NC, but it’s not as good as Somerset, and the mall in Greenville is just alright. One thing the mall in Greenville doesn’t have is a Sephora. Ugh. And while Sephora does have a very comprehensive website, I still like going to the store to be able to check everything out. So I had to make a stop in the Somerset Sephora to pick up two products that are among my absolute favorite beauty finds:

Peter Thomas Roth Max Anti-Shine Mattifying Gel: I have extremely oily skin. Extremely. I have tried tons of different moisturizers and primers that are supposed to combat shine, however I’ve found them all to be useless, and usually they just end up making my skin more greasy. However, this stuff is different. It actually works. It’s got a really silky texture, and a little goes a long way. When you put it on under makeup, it’s like it actually creates a barrier to stop oil. Love love LOVE it. 

    Make Up For Ever HD Foundation: This stuff is great. Most foundations have really unnatural shades that are usually to pink or too yellow, but Make Up For Ever is spot on. They have a ton of different shades that are all really, well, real. This foundation goes on so smooth, and gives great coverage. It’s by far the best foundation I’ve tried so yet. 

      I also got a coupon, a great sample, and my free birthday gift while visiting the store…I heart Sephora 🙂
