My ‘Hell YES Lent is OVER!’/Sephora Shopping List

Heading to Maine today, and as such I have been preparing a list of cosmetics I am planning to pick up now that my torment challenge is now finally coming to an end.  Check out what I’m indulging in:

Illamasqua Blush in Hussy ($24US) – I tried to order this online last month when I ‘stocked up’ before Lent began, but you can’t get this product in Canada, boo.  Hopefully I’ll be more successful in the US.

Murad Oil-Control Mattifier SPF15 ($39.50US) – another product I made efforts to buy here which I was unable to order online (the SPF regulations I suspect).  I couldn’t even get a sample of it when it was offered with my order!!

Kate Somerville Eradikate Acne Spot Treatment ($22US) – read some great reviews of this product, and I’m actually in the market for a new blemish treatment so I’ll give it a go!

Phyto Phytolactum + Intelligent Shampoo ($24US) – I once bought a bottle of Phyto shampoo which completely broke and spilled everywhere in my suitcase on my flight home; that was when they used to package them in glass bottles.  Now it appears like they are aluminum or something?  And we’re driving so I’m hoping that I’ll actually get a change to try the product this time.

I also need a new concealer…I have Bobbi Brown’s corrector (not enough coverage) and Chanel’s Eclat Lumiere  (brightens but no coverage for my racoon eyes), so back to the drawing board I go.  In the running are: Amazing Cosmetics Amazing Concealer ($42US), Urban Decay 24/7 Concealer Pencil ($18US), Tarte Dark Circle Defense Under Eye Corrector ($32US), Hourglass Hidden Corrective Concealer ($32US), and Make Up For Ever Full Cover Concealer ($30US).  This is something I clearly can’t order online without being able to test the shades on my skin, so I thought this would be a great opportunity to do so.  I suspect that the UD pencil and Hourglass’ concealer will not have shades dark enough for me…and I get the impression that the Tarte concealer may be just like the BB Corrector.  I’ve heard conflicting views on the Amazing Concealer, and I have tried it before and didn’t have luck with the shades, but I’ll give it another go.

Does anyone have any suggestions/feedback regarding these concealers?  And the other products I mentioned?  Any particular products that I should be scooping up while I’m there?

I hope everyone has a great Easter weekend!!!

    CONGRATULATIONS! You did it! :D :D

    I am sooo curious about Illamasqua – so many products that don’t make it across the border. :(

    Can’t wait to see your gigantic insane haul. ;)

      I’m baaaack :D Unfortunately, the Sephora in Maine had neither Illamasqua nor Hourglass so I wasn’t able to check them out at all – highly disappointing! I’ll be in T.O. in June so I’ll look at Hourglass then but I’m going to have to continue my Illamasqua lemming for a while longer yet, boo.

      I am going to post pics of my haul shortly, stay tuned!!

...And what do you have to say about all this?? Dish! :)
