THREE THINGS: Sephora Collection Fall 2016 Bits & Bobs - Foot Masks, Hair Ties and Brushes

By "bits and bobs", I mean all those things that you find in Sephora's AISLE OF DOOM (the infamous shelving near the checkout counter). Some things in the aisle of doom are absolute pieces of poop, while others are total gems. I'm here to help you distinguish which ones are which. 

Let's start with the most disappointing thing...the Sephora Collection Tick and Tied Hair ($13 CAD). I can't believe anybody would ever pay $13 for a hair tie. That's just absurd to me. Sure, the leather ribbon looks chic in the hair but I feel like this is the kind of thing you could DIY for less than $5 at home.  Pass. 

Sephora does some decent brush sets, which the Sephora Collection Desert Sky Brush Wrap ($49 CAD) is... but not for nearly $50. The textured brush holder is adorable, as are the mini wooden-handled brushes but somewhere along the line it doesn't add up. You're better off buying a couple of the single Sephora Collection brushes, i.e. (any of the hakuhodo brushes or pro airbrush collection brushes (which are of impeccable quality). 

I've saved the best for last. The Sephora Collection Almond Foot Mask ($6 CAD) is a spa experience on a budget kind of product. The Foot Mask is basically a pair of lined socks with cold, moisturizing liquid inside. It reminds me a lot of the Skin Republic Foot Peeling Mask or Baby Foot in design but don't worry... the Sephora Collection Almond Foot Mask will NOT make your feet peel. It simply nourishes the skin of the feet and softens up any rough areas. 

All in all - skip the brushes and the hair ties but be sure to stock up on those foot masks!
