ABS Shops Sephora Online!

January 15, 2009

Sephora currently has a ton of great new items on their site, but since I know that not everybody’s as obsessive a Sephora-shopper as I am, I figured I’d point out a few of the more interesting items for your shopping convenience.

Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion in Sin ($17)
What it does:
Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion – Sin combines incredible staying power with a shimmering champagne hue that complements almost any eyeshadow. This two-in-one beauty miracle can be worn alone to give eyes just a hint of tint for when you’re in a hurry or in need of that “no makeup” look.

Urban Decay’s bestselling Primer Potion is now available (currently to Beauty Insiders only) in a shimmering champagne shade. I’m tempted to purchase this since I’ve heard such fabulous things about the original UDPP, but I’m also a little reluctant since I’ve also heard that the packaging is absolutely rubbish.

Tarte ‘Bottoms Up’ Lower Lash Mascara ($16)
What it is:
A mascara specifically designed to precisely coat each and every bottom lash.
What it does:
Tarte Bottoms Up™ – Lower Lash Mascara has a flake-free, water-resistant formula with a precision tapered brush that allows you to target the tiniest of lashes and wide-set bristles that separate and evenly coat. The ergonomic component ensures easy application for perfectly defined bottom lashes.

Being the mascara freak that I am, I’m finding it might hard to resist the allure of this dainty little lower-lash mascara. I know I need a separate mascara for my lower lashes like I need another toe, but Bottoms Up is paraben, mineral oil, sulfate, and synthetics free which makes me feel a little less guilty about wanting this. Is it bad that I currently have this in my shopping cart?

LORAC Special Effects Mascara ($22)
What it does:
LORAC Special Effects Mascara delivers a double dose of lash beauty. One side is a primer containing natural oils, DL-Panthenol, and plant extracts to revitalize your lashes, making them stronger and softer. The other side features a carbon black Defining and Lengthening Mascara that is formulated with unique polymers to stretch and hold lash shape for clump and flake-free lashes. Both formulas are infused with Mother of Pearl to keep lashes supple, healthy, and shiny.

Yet another new and fabulous-sounding mascara!

Stila The Precious Pearl Palette ($40)
What it does:
Stila The Precious Pearl Palette features six new silky smooth eyeshadow shades that are infused with genuine crushed pearl. A natural wonder, pearl minimizes the appearance of fine lines and leaves skin with a youthful, radiant glow. It also contains minerals and proteins which nourish the skin leaving it smooth and soft. These six must-have eyeshadow shades, that can be worn alone or together, create an endless number of brilliant looks. They are tucked inside a vintage-inspired compact with real mother-of-pearl detail.

From the swatches I’ve seen of this palette it looks pigmented, satiny, and just all-around gorgeous. And of course I love the fact that the shadows are infused with real crushed pearls, which purportedly are great for the complexion. Tempting!

Tarte Spring Greening Reusable Straw Palette ($38.50)
What it does:
Tarte Spring Greening Reusable Straw Palette contains six vibrant eyeshadows, three vivacious t5™-infused lipglosses, and a bamboo eyeshadow brush. Everything is tucked in a compact composed of sustainable straw to help protect and replenish the Earth’s natural resources. The foam tray is constructed of Ethylene Vinyl Acetate (EVA), a post-consumer recycled material—so when you’re finished using the eyeshadows you can easily remove the tray and reuse the straw palette!

Bare Escentuals Buxom Babes Lip Polish Duo ($18)
What it does:
Buxom Babes Lip Polish Duo naturally creates the look of fuller, more voluptuous lips. This mineral-infused polish imparts a luminous, high shine with no sticky or tacky feeling. A deep infusion of antioxidant vitamins A and E help keep lips soft, smooth, and protected, while the tingly and cooling sensation reminds you that your lips are getting an immediate increase in fullness.

Since purchasing my BE Diamond Lips set I’ve become a HUGE fan of these glosses–I just can’t get enough!

Le Soin Noir

What it does:
Givenchy Le Soin Noir contains an extremely precious, natural age-defying ingredient that will secure its status in you’re anti-aging routine. Used for the first time in cosmetics, Vital Black Algae Sap Concentrate restores communication between the skin’s cells. Givenchy’s researchers have developed a method to infuse this potion with a rare black algae extract to help maintain and prolong cellular longevity. Parched skin drinks in the hydration it needs—leaving your complexion firm, glowing, and even-toned.
What else you need to know:
Vital Black Algae Sap Concentrate is found in the depths of the ocean and reconstructs a catalyst in the skin to counteract the signs of aging. Only Vital Black Algae Sap Concentrate contains these precious black molecules that are extremely rich in vital fatty acids. The result is skin that draws new strength to protect the cells’ DNA from light-induced aging and wrinkles as it becomes firmer and restores itself. Smooth it on morning and night to form an invisible barrier that protects against the signs of aging caused by environmental and internal assaults.

You can currently get a free sample of this stuff online with any order, so you can be sure I’ll be checking out this uber-expensive $360 cream!
