When Your BF Goes to Sephora for Christmas

When your fiance goes to Sephora to get you Christmas presents

When your fiance goes to Sephora to get you some Christmas pressies…

Happy holidays everyone! I have been pretty much AWOL this December. I had a sensitive family matter occur that required me to suddenly go out of town (it has been a stressful month), and then I also had to travel for work. I returned home with literally nothing done for Christmas. I decorated a tree and did some shopping 3 days before Christmas! I was so unprepared this year. I pretty much failed at Christmassing. I hope everyone else had a much more stress-free holiday than I did πŸ™‚

I did have a lovely Christmas day with my fiance though. I couldn’t resist sharing this story of his adventure in Sephora. He was out-of-town in December as well, and when he was in Ontario, for the first time he actually ventured into a Sephora seeking some Christmas presents for me. He is aware that I have a lot of makeup, so he told me that he asked the SA for the most “obscure tools” they sold, that I would be unlikely to already have. This question apparently earned him a very blank look from the poor SA! Here’s what he chose all by himself after wandering around the store:

Sephora Bullseye Lash Applicator, Sephora Retractable Lip Brush #60, & Fresh Sugar Nourishing Lip Balm Advanced Therapy

Here’s what he chose (not too bad eh?)

  • Fresh Sugar Nourishing Lip Balm Advanced Therapy
  • Sephora Retractable Lip Brush #60
  • Sephora Bullseye Lash Applicator

He was pretty pleased with himself that I did not have anything like the lash applicator or retractable lip brush! He is also well aware of my lip balm addiction, but I didn’t have the Fresh Sugar Nourishing Lip Balm either.

I normally use tweezers to hold false lashes when I’m applying them, but then there’s the worry of getting glue on my tweezers. I have never tried a tool specifically designed for applying lashes. I haven’t tried this puppy out yet (I will probably wear some lashes on New Year’s Eve). If anyone has any experience with lash applicators, please tell me about it in the comments! I’d love to hear your thoughts on whether these type of tools are actually useful or not.

I am loving the Fresh Sugar Nourishing Lip Balm ! I have had the tinted Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment in bullet form. While I liked the product, I hated the packaging because the lip balm was so soft it would just smoosh and crack off every time I tried to apply it. Has anyone else had this happen to them? I ended up putting it into an empty lip balm container and just applying it with my finger. I remember thinking – why don’t they just put this stuff in a pot?! Well, they finally did. The packaging on the Fresh Sugar Nourishing Lip Balm is adorable. The lip balm is very thick and almost sticky (but in a good way). It makes your lips so soft! I also like the light, mint chocolate scent.

I thought it was very sweet of him to brave the Sephora on his own πŸ™‚

I hope everyone is enjoying their holidays! My library is closed until January 5th, so I plan on spending my down time blogging. I have lots of great new things I’ve picked up on my travels to tell you about, plus some giveaways coming up πŸ™‚

Thanks for reading!

  1. Aww this is beyond cute! My SO has NEVER set foot inside a Sephora that I’m aware of!
    I’m also picturing him asking the Sephora SA for the most obscure makeup tools πŸ˜†


  2. My BF braved Sephora by himself too! He got me set of pretty rose gold brushes (because he knows I love rose gold). I’m impressed!
