This is my absolute favorite time of the year for shopping at Sephora. If you don’t understand why, walk into your nearest store and check out the deals happening as stores prepare for the holiday season. You can buy one lipstick for $20, or for $25, you can get a whole package full of mini lipsticks in practically every color a line carries. When was the last time you finished a whole tube of lipstick off anyway? Probably never. Below are some of my favorite new releases I am looking forward to for fall!
Sephora 2013 Fall Shopping List

1) For $59, you can get Urban Decay’s Vice Palette 2. I love UD’s eye shadows because they are high quality, long wearing, and very pigmented. I didn’t get the Vice Palette 1 when it came out last year, and I spent the rest of the season kicking myself as I watched other bloggers swatching it online. The shades are to die for, and for $59, you get 20 shadows, which ends up being $2.95 each. A total steal, and there’s a good mix of neutrals, smoky shades, brighter shades, and a double ended full sized brush.
2) Lancome’s new 24H Precision Point Eyeliner is ultra long wearing, laser-precise and available in 10 colors. It has a felt-tip applicator that helps with application and prevents you from tugging and skipping. I am thrilled that Lancome has reformulated this eyeliner because it is my favorite beauty product, probably ever. I never thought I would wear liquid eyeliner before trying this, but it is SO EASY to apply. It’s the only thing I wear every single day in my makeup routine without fail (I usually do top lashes only) and in the 5 years since I started using it, I have only bought 3 tubes because it basically lasts forever.
3) Radical Skincare believes in putting highly potent, effective ingredients in all of their products, regardless of the price. The more potent, the better the product works. What’s exciting is that Radical Skincare is newly being offered at Sephora. When I am trying out a new skincare item I like being able to go to the store and test it out there, and I know Sephora will let me sample anything, and they have a great return policy. It’s so exciting when a brand I love is offered at a store near me since it’s so much easier than buying online and paying shipping!
4) Since discovering Buxom Cosmetics a few years ago, I’ve purchased every single one of their holiday lip sets. This year’s is $32 for a $54 value. At least one of the shades in the Time to Shine 6 Piece Full- On Lip Collection is a repeat from last year, but that’s ok with me, because I love all the shades! White Russian is my favorite nude lip gloss ever (and a repeat from last year). 
5) I recently discovered Becca Cosmetics when I tried their Shimmering Skin Perfector (pressed) in Opal.  Now they came out with a limited edition shade in Rose Gold! I must own it. I have an addiction to anything that promises to illuminate my complexion.
6) Smashbox’s Fade to Black Photo Op Eye Shadow Palettes look so beautiful. I I just reviewed the lipstick in Cognac from this same collection the other day so check that out too. I just love the different shades that go in an ombre pattern from light to dark in these palettes.
7) tarte’s Stop and Stare 6 Piece Eyeliner and Lash set looks so amazing. Seriously a great deal for what you get. I am always impressed with the quality of tarte’s products.
