Sephora Shopping Trip Continued

Posted on Nov 5, 2009 at 7:01AM

On her hunt for the perfect foundation for issues with her pregnant skin, The Working Girl purchased Kevyn Aucoin foundation stick, which she loved, but she choose the wrong color.  So without twisting Mother Blogger's arm, the mother-daughter shopping team made a return trip to Sephora to return the foundation stick for a ligher color -- Linda.  (The return policy at Sephora is extremely generous, but remember, girls, please don't abuse it.  Staffers reported that some women will return empty containers weeks after purchase. )

The Sephora staff greeted us like we were their long-lost friends and graciously returned the product and found the right match for The Working Girl's skin.

While The Working Girl was consulting the staff, Mother Blogger was making her quick trips down the isles again, sniffing new parfums, layering on 12 different foundations, coating her hands in butter and shea creams, and keeping an eye out for great gifts.

Product that are noteworthy:

Sephora's samplers -- from mascaras to skincare to makeup to fragrance trumped by the Sephora Collection ultimate blockbuster sampler for 2009  ($400 value for $48) makes a great gift for your girlfriend who can't make an executive decision or who loves makeup more than beauty.






One of Mother Blogger's favorite gifts to give and to get are Philosophy's gift sets.  What sounds cozier than Philosophy Winter Escape. The set contains Peppermint Hot Cocoa Shampoo, Shower Gel and Bubble Bath;  Marshmallow Souffle; and Marshmallow Lip Shine. 

Philosophy's Recipe Box, containing Red Velvet Cake and Sweet Cream Frosting bath products and adorable recipe cards, is a great hostess gift. 

An all-time favorite of Mother Blogger' s and Hubbers', though, is ANYTHING Philosophy Amazing Grace

Check back tomorrow for more products on our radar screen from Sephora.
