Just the other day, Sephora VIB Rouge members received a $20-off-a-$100-purchase coupon; the Lipstick League wants to know if you used it and what for.
I'm a Sephora VIB Rouge member... and I ignored the discount. Didn't order a darned thing. Didn't even look until I needed to find something to use as an image for this post.
Lovelies, I've been having a terribly tough time making words happen, lately. As a result, I'm suuuuuuuuuper behind on reviews and stories. I have a ton of stuff I still need to tell you about, a ton of good things, and so many just waiting for me to try. So I have no business buying anything to add to the pile.
That said, oooooh the Anastasia blush trios ($39 CAD and $30 USD) are gorgeous, and despite the CAD vs US exchange rate, how could I not want a Pat McGrath Labs Matte Trance Lipstick ($52 CAD and $38 USD) – do you see that packaging?? And I've been curious about the Milk Cooling Water gel stick ($29 CAD and $24 USD at sephora.com) for a while...
Damn. Now I wish I'd used the coupon. But it's probably best I didn't, right?
