Another Monday, another Covet List!
(A little background: Since I’ve decided that coveting is infinitely more agreeable than reckless spending, I was thrilled to be approached by Nadia Carriere of Child Mode to participate in the Monday Covet List. Together with some of my favorite fashion and style bloggers, Nicole Feliciano of Mom Trends, Vera Sweeney of Lady and the Blog and Audrey McClelland of Mom Generations, we’ll share 3-4 covet-worthy products that we are currently lusting over.)
Of course, I’ve realized that coming up with a covet list is way too easy because I tend to covet things all the time. This week, I’ve got the following gorgeous pieces on my mind (and perhaps favourited on my browser)…
Perhaps the most perfect time to covet designer beauty items are when they’re ON SALE! As such, this week’s #MondayCovet List is dedicated to the sale section at Sephora.ca, where Canadian beauty junkies can find the most amazing pieces for a steal!
1. First, I can’t figure out why this TARTE PureOptic Lip Gloss Set is regularly $101.00, because that seems a *teeny* bit steep for 4 lip glosses. However, TARTE is a premium brand, so what do I know? Regardless, the set is now marked down to just $36.00, making it perfectly affordable and perfectly coveted!
Each flattering shade contains a complex of 24 pigments blended together to capture and reflect light. Nourishing, hydrating peppermint also helps give a fuller appearance to lips. The natural hues complement every skintone for a rich, vivid, long-lasting pop of color. This set contains: Sheer Vibrant Pink Lip Gloss, Golden Pink Lip Gloss, Sheer Melon Lip Gloss and Blushing Rose Lip Gloss.
2. Next, this SEPHORA COLLECTION Colorful Duo Eyeshadow is currently marked down to $7.00 – the regular price being $21.00. The Colorful Duo is a duet of highly pigmented, long-lasting, exclusive shadows that reinvent color intensity. Pictured below: 02 Intense Blue – shimmering icy violet blue/ shimmering midnight blue.
Also on sale: 09 Tropical Blue – shimmering bright medium blue/ shimmering golden emerald and 01 Intense Black – shimmering rich silver/ shimmering smokey black. Says Sephora: This perfectly matched pair features an intense color and a luminous color in coordinating hues. Create impeccably shaded eyes with this doubly gorgeous color essential. This exclusive formulation contains HIBOOST complex, designed to amplify color performance.
3. Finally, this is definitely a collector’s dream, and if Emerald Green is your colour, you’re in luck! The SEPHORA+PANTONE UNIVERSE The Color of The Year Collection, a $135.00 value, is marked down to just $41.00. This six-piece set features the most pigmented formulas from the 2013 Color of the Year collection for endless, luminous beauty. Included: Color Grid Shadow Block Bionic, Color Code Prismatic Shadow Block, Lightspeed Glitter Dust, Graphic Sculpt Waterproof Jumbo Eyeliner, Color Cube Lid Stain, Color Watt Highlighting Mascara and Color Code Prismatic Color Block.
Says Sephora: Enhance and magnify your look with this collection of rich, high-pigment formulas drenched in Emerald, an energetic color that induces power and unmistakable vibrancy. The brilliant prismatic eye shadow glides on silky for bold, all-day wear and the three-shadow palette intensifies eyes with complementary Emerald tones for a supernatural, futuristic look. The glitter dust accents with dramatic shimmer and the striking lid stain doubles as a vivid liner and shadow. The waterproof eyeliner flaunts the universal tone with a silky matte finish and the highlighting mascara finishes your look with a daring Emerald splash on your lashes.

Love the TARTE PureOptic Lip Gloss Set but still don’t think I can justify it at $36
I’ll be watching the site like a hawk to see if it comes down further!
Nope, even $36 is too expensive for the lip gloss. It still has the same ingredients as most of the other ones. Even though they maybe cost all of 10 cents to make, the heart wants what the heart wants. haha and my heart wants.
Hahaha my heart wants too. I’d love to see a comparison – ingredient by ingredient – between drug store and premium brands…
I don’t have a covet list (yet), but I LOVE that Sephora blue shadow for $7!
Isn’t it drool-worthy? The Tropical Blue is also HOT!

I dont really wear makeup so I dont covet things like that I covet kitchen decor, kitchen utensils, plates and appliances. I love going into a kitchen store I could stay for hours
When I first bought my new home, I was the same way. I’d spend HOURS in Kitchen Stuff Plus!
Make up is my addiction….must check out the sale….Thanks for the heads up!
You’re very welcome Andrea!
I need to start paying more cosmetic attention to my lips and their color. I tend to put on vitamin E cream just to gloss em up for healthy and natural look…
But that IS a healthy thing to do… not need to change your routine, perhaps just jazz it up a bit :)
The Pantone collection set is quite a deal! Unfortunately, I usually only ever wear more “neutral” looking makeup!
I don’t think I could pull off the Pantone set either… but I’m trying to think if I can gift it to anyone!
I use Tarte lip gloss all the time. Love it!
It’s awesome! I have one Tarte lip gloss and I adore it :)
I don’t think I could wear Emerald green but I like your suggestion of buying it for a gift!
Absolutely! What a stunning gift set it makes!
That SEPHORA+PANTONE UNIVERSE The Color of The Year Collection looks amazing!
It’s probably one of those things I would buy and just covet.. :)
I have so much makeup, I think I’m a hoarder
:) Me too. In fact I KNOW I am a hoarder!

They are pretty fabulous! I am resisting… but just barely…
Love Sephora….but I mostly stick to the clearance areas. You can get some great stuff for under $10 all the time!
