Sephora Friends & Family!!!!!!!

(Note: I had this ready to go last night, but Blogger was acting finicky and wouldn't let me post it...)

'Tis the season for sales and deals!!!! Unless you've been living under a rock, you should be aware by now that Sephora is currently running their Friends & Family discount sale. This is a great opportunity to stock up on staples in your arsenal, or to get a head start on Holiday shopping for loved ones.

I took advantage of the sale and made a small, but satisfying order. Follow meeeee!!!.......

Cargo Eastern Eye Pencil Collection, Make Up Forever Full Cover Concealer and Sephora by OPI polish in "Absinthe Makes The Heart".

Full Cover Concealer is my absolute holy grail of all holy grails. It's the best concealer I've ever tried- I've been a faithful user for almost 2 years now, and I probably won't ever need to switch to another product ever again. I know, I speak so highly of this product- it's brilliant, trust me on this one.

Cargo's Eastern Eye Pencil Collection is beautiful and an amazing deal. The set contains 5 eyeliners in black, blue, purple, olive, and gold. They are more of a travel or mini size pencil, but I think it's still a great deal for only $18. I will have swatches either tonight or tomorrow!!!

Green? Grey? Sparkles? Kind of hard to pin-point the actual shade of Absinthe Makes The Heart, one of the newest shades from Sephora by OPI, is in a class of it's own. It's really hard to capture the true shade with flash- it looks like charcoal here, but in real life it's a dark grey green with a complex blue and silver sparkle. A stunner- I don't own anything like it.

I might make another order for some gifts and fragrance, I might have to make sure my checkbook can handle it!

Are you planning to make an order from the Sephora Friends & Family sale? What are some things you've had your eye on?

Ooo... Please review the cargo pencils! I am tempted but if they smear, smudge, I'd pass.

I second the desire for a review on the Cargo pencils - I'd love to see swatches to see if they're too close to the rest of my collection!

i'd like to see an in-depth review of the MUFE concealer! i can't find anything that works on my bluish undereye circles.. i've tried concealer that matches my skin tone and the pinky ones from benefit and they both just seem to make the circles more blue :(
