Sephora VIB Sale Haul

Sephora VIB Sale Haul

I’m finally getting around to posting my Sephora VIB Sale Haul, instead of dealing with the madness of the stores during the sale, I ordered most of the stuff online and it took forever to ship and deliver. I’m a frequent Sephora shopper, but always love the 20% off that comes with the sale because it’s when I buy the higher priced items that I would otherwise probably not pick up. I was relatively well behaved this round, and already had a list in mind when I started shopping and pretty much kept to it.

NudeStix #GILTY Love Holiday Kit in Glit, Night & Twilight – I was hooked after my first NudeStix purchase (which you can read about here), so I wanted to pick up more during the sale. This Holiday kit has 3 of their Meteoric Eye Colours in two gorgeous metallic shades and one smokey black shade. These retail individually for $28 each, but this whole set was only $55 for all 3 (plus the 20% off of course!).

Bite Beauty Lush Fruit Lip Gloss in Honey, Papaya & Garnet – These are my first lip purchases from Bite Beauty, they’re miniatures (which we know I love) that were released for Christmas. I rarely go through a whole lip gloss, so I thought the minis would be a better option. They smell lovely, and aren’t sticky so I’m excited put these to the test.

Marc Jacobs Beauty Style Eye-Con No.7 – Plush Shadow in 206 The Lolita – I have eyed this palette for the better part of a year, however I couldn’t justify spending the $71 CDN on it. After reading a ton of reviews, I decided that with the 20% it was worth the splurge. So excited to try this out.

Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Spotlights in Champagne Gold, Opal & Pearl – This is my first Becca purchase, I’ve heard so many rave reviews about their skin perfectors that I decided this mini set of three was a great way to try them out (there I go with the minis again!). Both Pearl (top) and Opal (bottom) are available individually, however the Champagne Gold (middle) is a limited edition only available in the set.

Serge Lutens Un Bois de Vanille – This is the only purchase I made in store. Recently, the Sephora near me got a major upgrade and started carrying Serge Lutens fragrances (not available online). I love anything Vanilla scented, so as soon as I tested it, I wanted it. It’s not a normal vanilla scent, it’s has both smokey and woodsy notes and doesn’t smell overly sweet. I have worn this everyday since buying it. This is definitely more of a fall/winter scent.

So there you have it, my Sephora VIB Sale Haul!

Did you pick up anything during the sale? Have you tried any of the products I picked up?

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow

Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow

 

I recently did some serious hauling of Charlotte Tilbury products from beautylish.com. The main goal being to pick up this beautiful Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow palette. I had seen so many awesome reviews of this palette, and just had to try it out. This is probably one of the very few products that I used before taking pictures, because I just couldn’t resist it.

I feel like there should be some sort of angels singing every time I open this palette, it’s just so pretty! It’s similar to contour kits that have been released from NARS and Make Up Forever. It has the bronze/tan sculpting colour and a gorgeous highlight colour. When you first open it up, this kit has much more shimmer than other similar products, however that shimmer doesn’t translate as intensely onto the skin. Even swatched the sculpt side looks shimmery, but it doesn’t translate to the skin at all. Instead, when you put it on the skin it gives you the most gorgeous bronzed glow, and when used to contour, gives you cheekbones for days. I find it adds more dimension, compared to a matte bronzer. It’s just gorgeous!

The glow side has quickly become my favourite highlighter ever! It definitely gives you glow, I don’t tend to use this on a daily basis because it does pack quite a punch. But when I want a highlight, this is my go to! It’s not a shimmery highlight, more of a glowy one. It’s like you’re lit from within. My best comparison would be if the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powders and MAC Soft & Gentle had a baby, this would be it!
