I cannot believe how quickly time has passed since I last reviewed my empty products. This has been hard time with a lot of loss so my mindset was not focused on beauty as much as it usually is. During 2017, I barely ever wore makeup, although I continued to collect some for the day I once again had the desire to spend quality time getting ready. Since this was a year of bare minimum pampering (other than moisturizers, which I consider a necessity), I have a lot less than I usually would. It is still important that I tell you what I thought of the items I finished and saved (as I spent a lot of time between two houses and hotels this year so I did not save all of my empties). My ex also started throwing things away after we separated when he used to save the items we both used when we were still together.
There are so many products I fall in love with but will take a while to finish. Instead of waiting until I can mention them in a FabuFinds article or waiting to see if they make the Top 10 of the Year, I want to go over items from my Core Collection. These are items I consider great deals (even at full-price, although I will still try to get them with a deal). If I ever finish them, I will probably replace ones that do not already have back-ups. Sometimes, they are items I’ve had for a while and just tried or items I tried in the past but love more upon rediscovery. Occasionally, I purchase items I love that do not fit into an article other than this one. When I try something from a recent acquisition where I wrote an article, I will always edit a mini review into the original article (love, hate, or anything in between) or mention it in an Empties article (if I finish it quickly). A single product review in the original article will not always depict how much I love it compared with other items I tried that month. This lists my Deal Discoveries from August 2016 that I am not even close to finishing.

The Sale Section at Sephora blew up last week and keeps releasing loads of new goodies. Sephora is having an End of Summer Sale to make room for fall. New items from tarte, Urban Decay, Philosophy, Make Up For Ever, First Aid Beauty, Supergoop!, Ren, St. Tropez, Buxom, Lavanilla, bareMinerals, Josie Maran, Ole Henriksen, Sephora Collection, Stila, Formula X, Boscia, Ciate London, Korres, Algenist, Nest, Peter Thomas Roth, Butter London, Karuna, Julep, Jinsoon, and more are available. Although it is always a good idea to check the Sale Section as seasons change over, it is actually a good idea to check everyday over the next few weeks. I am seeing new items almost every day since I first reported about the sale on the 22nd.
