So I bought a bunch of makeup from Sephora to do haul both in March and April and I forget to write them! I decided to combine all the makeup that I recently purchased into one big Sephora Haul. There is a combination of new and older products. A bunch I got during the Sephora VIB Spring sale.
Now the whole reason I did a Sephora order in March was to buy the Anastasia Beverly Hills Soft Glam Eyeshadow palette. This is my first Anastasia palette, but I was very excited because I have heard good reviews of her other palettes. This palette is just beautiful and has many everyday, wearable shades. The shades are mainly warmed tone, but there a few cooler toned shades. The eyeshadows are very pigmented, so there is a decent amount of powder that kicks up in the pan, but nothing like I saw with reviews on the Subculture palette. The metallics are super creamy but have a lot of fallout, so I just make sure to do my eyes first with this palette. I am very happy with this purchase and I know I will continue to use it a lot.
Next I decided to buy the Huda Beauty Easy Lash in the style Camille after seeing Rachhloves rave about them in her videos. There are a demi lash, which means that only cover half of the eyelid and are generally easier to apply. Even though these are demi lashes, they are full of drama. I liked them because sometimes I find big lashes can completely cover my eyelids, but since these are a demi lash you can see my eyeshadow. The only thing I didn’t like was that since they were a demi lash, it was harder to conceal my lash band. Overall they are really well made and I am interested in trying some of Huda’s other lashes. Check out my Instagram to see these lashes on my eyes, in my St. Patrick’s day makeup!
Next I got a mini of the Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Microfinishing Pressed Powder. I received a sample of this powder and liked it so much I decided to buy a mini of it. I like this powder because it’s pressed but when I swirl my brush in the pain powder comes off very easily. There is nothing I hate more then having to swirl my brushes a ton to get powder on my brush with a pressed powder. This powder makes my skin look and feel super smooth and is pretty good a controlling oil. I got the mini mainly because it’s cheaper haha!
The final product in my March haul was the Smashbox Always On Matte Liquid Lipstick. I had many good reviews that this was one of the best liquid lipstick and I must agree! I personally prefer comfort over transfer proof and this one delivers what I want. While the line has a large shade range, I find all the shades very dark. I ordered the shade Babe Alert, and while it’s described as a nude rose, I found it to be very pink instead of being more nude. It’s still a lovely shade, but I would have preferred if they had more nude options.
The second haul I did during the Spring VIB sale. I bought a bunch of stuff I had my eye on for awhile, but was waiting for a sale to buy. The first is the Tarte Tarteist PRO Glow Highlight and Contour Palette. I was looking for a creme contour and I thought this palette would be a good fit for me since if I decided I don’t like creme contouring I could still get use out of the palette with the highlight shades. This palette comes with one creme contour, one powder contour and four powder highlights. I really like this palette. The creme contour shade is smooth, pigmented and easy to blend. The powder is super pigmented, so make sure to tap off the excess. The highlight shades are beautiful and feel so creamy. I am really happy with this purchase and I know I will use it a lot.
Next I decided to get the Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Glow Highlighter in the shade Oyster which is a rose gold shade. This liquid highlight definitely has a learning curve to it. I tried to apply it with a sponge and it just removed my foundation underneath. Using my fingertips is the best way to apply it I find. I also was excepted this to be a more blinding highlight but it’s more of a glowy sheen. This is great for no-makeup-makeup days.
I wanted to get a eyeshadow primer so I decided to get the Smashbox 24 Hour Photo Finish Shadow Primer (because it was the same rating but cheaper than the Urban Decay Primer Potion). I have very oily eyelids, so I need to use a primer to make sure my eye makeup doesn’t get are creasy and greasy. This primer is tacky to it’s useful to just go over the primer with a nude/skin tone eye shadow. This primer does a great job keeping the eyeshadows vibrant looking. The only thing is that the whole the primer comes out of is quite large, so I have to be careful not to squeeze too much out.
Finally, I repurchased the Urban Decay All Nighter Long-Lasting Setting Spray. It’s my favourite setting spray, hands down. The mist is so fine and nice. This also makes my makeup look great! It takes away the powdery look and locks in the makeup. I use this setting spray, and a little MAC Fix+, every single day.
And that is my massive makeup haul! Let me know what you guys think of the products I bought, and what I should buy next time I place a Sephora order. 🙂
