It's official - Sephora Holiday Magic is going to bankrupt me!

You might recall 19 days ago my excitement at receiving the new Sephora holiday magic catalogue here.  I placed 2 orders from it, got lots of nice stuff and was thrilled.  Imagine my surprise on arriving home last night to find another one in my mailbox, and I don't mean a copy of the same one, I'm talking about a whole new and different catalogue.  Can I say I am any less thrilled?  Of course not!  Can I say that Sephora is a bunch of insidious marketing geniuses?  You betcha!  This is what I imagine happened:  the Sephora marketing people were all sitting around a couple of weeks ago talking about me and they said "Hey, we sent out the Holiday magic catalogue and we got 2 orders from Lisamarie.  What do you say we send out a new one and see how much money we can shake out of her then?!"  Cue maniacal laughter.

Fine Sephora, be like that!  You know what I'm going to do?  Well order out of the new catalogue of course!  See how you like that!  Oh wait, you will like that, in fact this is exactly what you were hoping for...damn you, you evil geniuses!

So here is what I think looks good this time:

I love the skincare sampler that I ordered last time so I expect I would also enjoy this mascara sampler just as much.  It has all of these in it: 
- Hourglass Superficial Lash
- Urban Decay Skyscraper Multi-Benefit Mascara
- Korres Abyssinia Oil Volumizing and Strengthening Mascara
- Benefit A Little Bit BADGal Lash Mascara
- Smashbox Lash DNA
- Laura Mercier Thickening and Building Mascara
- Fresh Supernova
- Sephora Lash Stretcher
- Tarte 4 Day Stay Lash Stain
- Cargo LashActivator.

And actually, the lip sampler looks good too.  Why must I love a sampler so?!  This is what is in here:
- Duwop Private Red
- Smashbox Lip Enhancing Gloss in Sheer
- Sephora Nano Lip Liner in Beau Bordeaux 11 or Radiant Rosy 14
- NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Roman Holiday (vibrant pink sheen)
- Korres Guava Lipstick in Wine Red (burgundy wine)
- CARGO Plantlove Botanical Lipstick in Muir Woods (sheer spiced mauve)
- Tarte Vitamin Infused Lipstick in Hatha (shimmering berry rose)
- Laura Mercier Lip Coulour-Crème in Pink Champagne

And of course I must have the Stila lip glaze collection.  It has 4 old and 4 new colours:  starfruit, kitten, cranberry, blackberry, marmalade, pinkle twinkle, plum fairy and candy.  They sound delicious, how can I resist?!

And here is something that I have been mulling over but haven't quite decided on yet.  I have been thinking about getting a Clarisonic - I have heard lots of great things about them and now Sephora has this set with a full sized Kinerase and a body attachment.  I would love to hear opinions from any other Clarisonic users... and I'll tell you what the only thing keeping me from ordering this one would be if I did decide to order it is...
It also comes in pink!  And I just can't resist pink!  It doesn't come with the body attachment or the free cream so I will have to decide if having it pink it worth that... The first set is $225 and the pink one is $195 (both US $)  Help!
And just to make sure you are fully sucked in, like all the pretty merchandise wasn't enough, there is a new gift.  A Kat Von D Sephora tote.  Why I feel I need one of these I don't know but I do.  I don't like Kat Von D.  I don't have any of her makeup.  I don't watch her show.  I don't even have a single tattoo.  But this bag must be mine.  It can be yours too, just enter the code KVDTOTE.  For beauty insiders with a $50 order.
Fine, one (or maybe two, depending on Clarisonic) orders you get out of me Sephora!  But that's it!  I mean it this time!  And I had better not find another Holiday Magic catalogue in my mailbox in another couple of weeks...
