    I love Nars blush, and the Urban Decay eye shadow priming potion is a miracle worker!!

    ETA: I see you are already familiar with the awesomeness of the UD primer!! I have used MUFE foundation and really liked it, but it was so expensive that I didn’t use it long term.

    I’m a massive fan of NARS blush.. I may have all of them, to be honest.. or close to it.  I’d probably splurge on a NARS palette with the GC though.

    I am not adventurous when it comes to foundation. I randomly decided to try Revlon liquid foundation one day, turns out the color was a perfect match and I really like the way it wears, so I stick with it. Especially because it’s cheap, and I can’t believe what a good product it is for the price. Same goes for Maybelline concealer. Things I do buy from Sephora are: face primer (Benefit and Sephora brand), Laura Mercier setting powder for foundation, Mac blushes (they sell Mac at Sephora right?), Urban Decay setting spray (Skindinavia is also amazing but they don’t sell it at Sephora, but UD is actually made by them), eyebrow gel to set eyebrows (clear), and Nars bronzer (Laguna). I also use Mac lipsticks only and I would buy those at Sephora too. I buy all my eyeliner, lipliner and mascara from Maybelline and Revlon. I don’t tend to buy too many brushes at Sephora because they are so expensive and I find that the Coastal Scents brushes (buy online) are amazing for the price. I gravitate toward eyeshadow palettes with many colors, as I also think those are better for the money. However, you can also get those online from good cosmetics places, like Shany Cosmetics, and not pay Sephora prices.

    Dior Ultragloss. I also love the UD products you list.

    You could always buy a new perfume if you don’t *need* new makeup.

    Diorshow mascara is overrated IMO. I used it for years then tried Clinique Lash Doubling mascara on a whim, and it’s much better (and less expensive)… for my lashes anyway.

    @Mrs. Wallaby:  its great! very blendable and subtle (i went for one that matches the pink tones i already have in my cheeks and it looks great.) i really want to just go in there and RAID the place before my shower next week. ^.^

    @Mrs. Wallaby:  I got a $100 Sephora gift card for Christmas last year!

    One of the things I got was smashbox BB cream. It works as a primer, foundation, moisturizer and SPF. It’s amazing and my skin is always amazingly soft and clear after using it and it offers great coverage.

    I also got their Two-Faced mascara. It is really awesome and making your eyelashes look mega long but it’s really difficult to wash off.

    I got the bare minerals finishing powder and it sunk into all my poors and any creases and made me break out 🙁

    I’m obsessed with the Stila liquid eyeliner.  It is so simple to put on, stays all day, doesn’t run…it’s awesome!

    Smashbox photo finish primer is pretty much the same formulation as this so I definitely stopped wasting money on that.

    The Nars blush is on my wish list, and if you’re looking for an eyeliner, I’d suggest the makeup forever aqua eyes.  Best eyeliner I’ve ever used.
