Post-Christmas Sephora Haul!

Wednesday, January 06, 2016


I've spent the last week waiting for the Sephora shipment that has finally granted me VIB (Very Important Beauty) Insider status!  I've spent the past 10 years just being a Beauty Insider (lame) so this is a nice upgrade.  It doesn't really mean much of anything, but I did get a 10% off shopping pass, complimentary makeover, and a free shipping coupon.  I picked up a whole bunch of new products with a Christmas gift card (and accidentally spending double the amount of said gift card, whoops).  I haven't tried any of these yet, but here's an overview of what I chose!  

Ooh and I finally cashed in my points when I made this particular purchase.  I actually waited until I had 500!  Usually I blow them on smaller prizes once I reach 100, as I've never been one for delayed gratification.  For 500 points, I could pick from either the Bobbie Brown Skincare Must-Haves or the Make Up Forever Backstage Faves.  I chose the latter because there was lipstick, lipgloss, primer, microfinish powder, and Smoky Extravagant mascara which I already love.


I decided to finally try one of the Melted Liquified Longwear Lipsticks in Jelly Donut from Too Faced.  I've seen them dozens of times on the different blogs that I follow.  I've just always thought they were lipglosses, which I'm honestly just not a huge fan of.  There's that gooeyness factor.  Turns out they're lipsticks in the form of a lipgloss and they come in a lot of great colors!  I'm excited to try this one. Here's to hoping it lives up to the hype.


I can't get enough of Pantone's colors and shades, so of course I had to check out the Pantone Color of the Year Lipstick!  I'm also a sucker for cool packaging.  There are two Pantone Colors of the Year this year, Serenity and Rose Quartz, but I wasn't about to buy a blue lipstick.  Sorry, Serenity.  I love the pale pink shade of lipstick for Rose Quartz and I don't currently have anything like it.  I'm already imagining the outfits I'll wear it with!


Yes, ANOTHER lip color!  I have a problem, I'm obsessed with brightly colored lips.  My own, of course!  Actually, this is a rather neutral color that I picked up from Urban Decay.  It's a Super-Saturated High Gloss Lip Color in Lovechild.  This one was (and still is) on sale, which is pretty much the reason I added it to my cart.  I had a 20% off sale item coupon and I was curious as to how "super-saturated" this particular lip color actually was.  I have high hopes!


Lastly, I grabbed the Sephora Collection Flatter Yourself Contour Brush Set.  I've had this one on my "loves" wish list for quite a while now, but I've never gotten around to actually buying it.  For years I've been watching these makeup Youtube videos where they're using stippling, buffing, and angled brushes, and I have yet to buy my own.  Brushes are expensive!  This set was a pretty good deal, and they're so soft!  Like, amazing quality.  It comes with a little carrying case too.  Can't wait to try them out with my Anastasia contour palette.


No more makeup shopping for me for a while!  And no more lip color shopping for me...forever.  We'll see how well that goes for me (seeing as I have 10% off my next purchase which expires in a month).

Til next time!
