How To Spend Your Tax Refund Beautifully! (Coupons.com Tax Season Sweepstakes)

Tax Refund Wishlist!

As stressful as this season can be, now is the time to relax - tax relief is in sight! If you're lucky enough to be receiving a refund, here's a peek at my beauty wishlist. Maybe it'll give you some ideas as to how to spend some of your windfall!

  • MAKE UP FOR EVER 12 Flash Color Case ($99, sephora.com) - I've wanted this beauty since FOREVER, but can never really justify the splurge. The 12 Flash Color Case is a staple in the kits of many makeup artists because it allows you to create an array of looks and is great for traveling. It can be used on the eyes, cheeks, and lips, so it's truly multipurpose and can be used to create a myriad of looks. 

  • Hourglass Illusion Tinted Moisturizer Oil Free SPF 15 ($55, sephora.com) - I have heard nothing but rave reviews about all things Hourglass and I'd love to get my hands on this luxury tinted moisturizer. I tend to favor light to medium coverage on my face and I love that this is oil free and has SPF 15. This tinted moisturizer is truly a step above the rest, as it offers skin care properties as well. An advanced alternative to liquid foundation with clinical levels of anti-aging complexes to create a youthful, glowing complexion. It promises to be ultra-rich and deeply moisturizing, offering moderate coverage to help even out skintone and create a natural, flawless finish. Added Instalift at 3% lifts and visibly tightens the skin within one hour of application. Hyaluronic Filling Spheres at 3% help minimize the appearance of wrinkles while increasing skin's hydration levels to deliver a healthy, dewy radiance.

  • Korres Wild Rose + Vitamin C Advanced Brightening Sleeping Facial ($48, sephora.com) - I waxed poetic about this beauty here...

  • NARS The NARSissist Eyeshadow Palette ($79, sephora.com) - Though I've heard mixed reviews on this particular palette {people seem to either love it or hate it}, I don't have a single NARS eyeshadow in my entire collection, so I see this palette {it contains 15 of the beauty brand's signature shades} as the perfect way to rectify that!

  • Jurlique Fruit Enzyme Exfoliator ($45, sephora.com) - I've been a fan of Jurlique for a long while and exfoliating is one of my favorite parts of my skin care routine, so I can't wait to add this to my arsenal! This fruit-based facial treatment promises to leave skin visibly smoother and revitalized. An ideal natural alternative to synthetic chemical peels, this harnesses enzymatic action to gently exfoliate skin and support the natural process of cell renewal for a refreshed, clear, glowing effect. Indigenous Australian extracts help to brighten and invigorate dull complexions, and improve skin texture and firmness. A dose of antioxidants and humectants visibly soften fine lines and wrinkles while contributing to an overall healthier look and feeling.

  • Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy The Night Is For Noir Set ($20, sephora.com) - It was love at first sight {and sniff} when I saw Viva La Juicy Noir a few months ago. Problem is, I love fragrance too much to commit to just one, so I couldn't possibly work my way through an entire bottle of the elixir, no matter how intoxicating I find it to be. The solution: pen/travel sized bottles of my favorite perfumes that are not only portable, but come in portions way more in keeping to my use. This set is beyond perfect for me {and you really can't beat the price}!

  • boscia Tsubaki Beauty Oil ($46, sephora.com) - boscia is a new to me brand, but it's another one that I've heard raves about and given my proclivity for skin care, the more I examine the brand, the more I'm inclined to think that I want EVERYTHING they have to offer! But to start, I'll appease my obsession with oils and pick up this lovely in the pretty pink bottle. Tsubaki (Camellia) oil has been an essential part of Japanese beauty rituals for centuries; Japanese would traditionally nourish and protect their skin with the oil, giving them their traditionally flawless complexions. It is also thought to be responsible for the iconic smoothness of the geisha and samurai hairstyles of the past. Sounds like a win win to me!

  • Formula X For Sephora The Twenty-Two ($55, sephora.com) - I can't even begin to tell you how awesome the Formula X Base Coat is and based off of it's awesomeness, I sort of want every single color in the entire collection! But I'll start with this handy dandy collection of 22 mini bottles of lacquer in an array of classic creams, bright neons, cool chromes, and splatter-effect top coats.
Now, say a tax refund is not in the cards for you {or gasp! You owe Uncle Sam}, I still have a means for you to be able to make a beauty splurge! Coupons.com is hosting a sweepstakes to hook you up with some sweet spending money.
