Hey guys! Today I thought I would do my Sephora haul from their VIB sale. This year I totally passed on all the holiday palettes and instead stocked up on everyday items that I will definitely use and get my money's worth. I am embarrassed to say, there are numerous palettes I got last year that I still haven't even used! I am never doing that again, instead I am from here on out only buying makeup items that I love that I know I will get my money's worth out of.
This isn't a big in-depth review, I'm gonna just basically list everything and maybe give a couple of thoughts here and there. I would love to know what you guys got!!! I actually placed 2 separate orders because there was a coupon code I really wanted to use for a bag full of goodies (you'll see below). Anyways, let's get started!
(Darcy was excited about the new makeup too!!)
This thing is enormous! I am a bronzaholic, so this is definitely something I'll put to good use!
Tantric is a gorgeous matte bronzer that I was actually a little unsure about when I opened it. At first glance I thought it would be too pale for me, but I have worn it and I love it. Perfect shade.
I've mentioned on NUMEROUS blog posts how much I love the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powders and how I have been using only them as my highlight lately. Well, it only made sense to pick up the palette.
My holy grail foundation, the Make Up For Ever Mat Velvet +, $36
I already own this foundation, this is a backup because I love it SO much. I have extremely oily skin and this stuff works better than anything else.
Again, another backup because I adore this powder as well. It is great on it's own or as a setting powder. Love this in the warmer months especially. Where I am so oily I really like having a matte finish on my face, then I can go in and add luminosity where I want it. I want to have the control over where my face shines instead of being an all over greasy mess. Know what I mean? The MUFE Mat Velvet + foundation and the Duo Mat powder totally allow me to do this.
I bought this to use with a couple of my eyeshadows that have SO much fallout, as well as to use with some of my loose pigments. A total must-have.
YSL perfumes are on point. So on point I actually picked up 2!
(This one is my favorite!)
I picked up a new Beauty Blender for my vanity. The one that is in my travel makeup bag still cleans up really well and looks practically brand new. The one on my vanity is completely stained and looks dirty even when it's clean, so I grabbed this one that came with a blendercleanser solid. I don't think it's available anymore for me to link, but this was around $35 or so? (I honestly can't remember how much....sorry!)
My Season Set bag full o' goodies! This is the Flawless Refresh one, and just like the other 2 varieties this comes with 8 excellent products!
1. Tarte LipSurgence Lip Gloss in Exposed
2. Clinique Almost Lipstick in Black Honey
3. GLAMGLOW Thirsty Mud Hydrating Treatment
4. Bliss Grapefruit+Aloe Body Butter
5. First Aid Beauty Face Cleanser
(one of my faves)
6. Clarins Super Restorative Total Eye Concentrate
7. Marc Jacobs Daisy
8. Prada Candy Florale
I went ahead and picked up a 250 point perk - the Nest Midnight Fleur perfume.
I am extremely picky with scents and I haven't decided if I like this or not. The verdict is still out, lol.
I'm a December baby, so I was able to go ahead and snag my birthday gift! Sephora's birthday gifts this year are Make Up For Ever, if you are a VIB or a Rouge. This is my first year being a Rouge so that was exciting. The only difference in the Rouge gift and the VIB gift is the eyeliner...I think. I'm fairly sure the VIB gift is just the lipstick and mascara.
Black Aqua Eyes eyeliner
Smoky Extravagant mascara
And the adorably packaged lipstick. How cute.
My only concern now is......where do I put all this new makeup????
