 Last week Thursday, February 17, 2011 I attended the Sephora HOT NOW beauty event with HerGoodyBag, and ran into Felicia from ThisThatBeauty and Milly from BeautyLogicBlog.  Everyone, no matter the age or sex flock to Sephora because they are the leading destination for the latest trends and hottest products in beauty.  Now they are implementing a new monthly campaign featuring hand-picked beauty products that are HOT right NOW!

“The products featured each month will include the industry’s boldest product innovations, the coolest brand collaborations, and the most unique, under-the-radar discoveries found at Sephora.”

At the event we were able to look at all of the products featured for the months of March and April.  You can find, and purchase the HOT NOW beauty products for March right now on  My favorite products from March’s HOT NOW are:

Innovator: Josie Maran’s Argan Matchmaker Serum Foundation ($42).  This is my favorite because it is a medium to full-coverage foundation that has Chameleon Pigments, that adjusts to your skintone.  It’s light weight as well; it almost feels like a tinted moisturizer, it’s so light. It comes in two different formulations, Light/Medium and Medium/Dark.  I think that a Dark/Darker would be nice to add to this line as well to account for the darker shade ladies.


Cool Collab: Tokidoki’s Soda Pop Palette ($49).  This fun, funky palette is inspired by sock hops and soda shops of the 50′s.  It features 12-different eyeshadows (matte, satin, shimmer), perfecto eyeliner, nail file, removable tokidoki pendant magnet with a sheet of Soda Shop inspired tokidoki characters, all in a collectible tin. The colors in the palette are highly pigmented, and are perfect for any skintone.  I also love the packaging. Look at the picture below and tell me it isn’t cute!
