Sephora VIB Sale Haul + Announcement

Hey guys! So let’s start with the announcement because that’s the exciting part. So I’ve mentioned on both my Instagram and Youtube that I got a part-time job that’s not in PR for the time being. So today I have my first in-store shift at SEPHORA! I know, super exciting! The position is only a seasonal cashier for now. Since it’s only part-time I am still planning to be posting twice a week. But I do want to make it clear that all opinions on my blog, Instagram and Youtube are my own and do not reflect those at Sephora.

So let’s get into the haul. Sorry I didn’t get the chance to post this before the sale was over. This isn’t going to be an in-depth review just because I haven’t had the chance to test the products out. I just wanted to let you guys know what I got quickly so you could pick them up while they are still in stock.

The first item is the Briogeo Merry Multi-Masking Kit ft. Don’t Despair Repair Deep Conditioning Honey Bear Mask. I got this set because I’ve heard so many good things about the Honey Bear mask in this kit. Unfortunately, the kit is sold out, and it’s the only way to get the Honey Bear mask. But the other two masks in this kit (the Don’t Despair Repair and Be Gentle, Be Kind masks) are both permanent products so you guys can still pick those up. There are also other kits featuring these masks as well.

The next product I got is the Farmacy Honey Potion Renewing Antioxidant Hydration Mask. I had a sample of this mask before and I loved it so much that I decided to get a full size. It’s different compared to other hydrating masks because it gets warm and tingly. I would describe it more like a restorative mask. It takes my skin from blah to ahhhh. And the packaging is just beautiful.

The final two products are both Hourglass. The first is the Mini Ambient Lighting Edit. This is a limited edition product for the holidays that features a powder, blush, bronzer and highlight. I have heard so many good things about Hourglass face products so I thought it would be a nice way to try multiple of their products. The second Hourglass product is Unlocked Instant Extensions Lengthening Mascara. It’s a tubing mascara, which means that I only need to use water to wash off the mascara. I’ve never tried a tubing mascara so I thought it would be interesting to try!

I am so excited to play and test out all of these products. Let me know in the comments what you picked up in the Sephora VIB sale!

Sephora VIB Sale Haul + First Impressions

Hey guys! My Sephora VIB Sale order has finally come in! I ordered one of the last days of the sale which is why it took so long to come in. I usually do full reviews on the products, but since it took so long for the products to arrive I thought it best to just do some first impressions so I could get this post up asap.

The first product is a Beauty Blender set! I’ve mentioned this before but every sale I always buy a new Beauty Blender. They are great sponges and I use them almost every time I do my makeup. This one came with a red sponge and a solid cleanser. It’s a good deal because it’s the same price as a regular Beauty Blender.

The next product is the one I was waiting for the most! I got the OLEHENRIKSEN Truth Juice Daily Cleanser. I finished my other OLEHENRIKSEN cleanser the other day so it was great timing. I tried it this morning and I think I like it. It smells like orange which I love. It lathers up nicely and left my skin feeling soft. I need to try this cleanser a bit more to say whether I love it or not, but so far so good.

I got two eyeliners. The first is the Tarteist Double Take Eyeliner in the shade Brown. I have been wanting a brown liquid eyeliner. I thought this one would be good because it also has a pencil on the other end. Now this is a felt tip, which I’m not as good at using. But I was able to create a pretty good wing with it. But I will say it’s darker than I expected. I think I like this and will get some good use out of it.

The second eyeliner I bought was the Makeup Forever Artist Color Pencil in the shade Boundless Bisque. I like to put white in my waterline, but sometimes white can be a little too bright. I thought this nude would be a good shade. And I was right! I used the pencil and it make my eyes just look so awake and bright. I’ve only had it in my waterline for two hours but it’s still there! I think I will like this liner.

The final product is the Milk Makeup Matte Bronzer. I have heard so many good things about this bronzer and have had it on my wish list for awhile. I thought now was the perfect time to get it ahead of summer. I’ve only used it once but I am already it love. This bronzer blended out so easily. I also love that it’s a matte formula. I find that sometimes creams can make me look greasy, but this one just looks so natural. It’s also a great shade match for me. OH I LOVE THIS ALREADY!

And that is my Sephora VIB Sale haul. Let me know in the comments what products you guys got during the sale!

Sephora Haul April 2020

Hey guys! Today I am sharing a little Sephora haul! My birthday is at the beginning of April. I used a gift card that I received when placing this order. Now I know the Sephora sale is on right now, so this haul comes at a great time! I will probably be placing another order myself using the sale (mainly to buy a new Beauty Blender lol).

So the first product is the Huda Beauty Nude Obsessions in the shade Medium. I picked the Medium one specifically because I love the combination of warm browns and pink/peachy colours. I love every single shade in this palette. They all work so well together. I like how balanced the palette is with four shimmers and five mattes. Within the mattes, there is a mix of light and dark shades. It’s a tad deep for everyday use for me but I was able to make it work. This is the perfect glam palette, and it will be great to travel because it’s so small and I know I can create a bomb look with this palette. Overall very happy with this purchase and I think I’ll use it a lot.

Next up is the Nudestix Nudies Matte Blush in the shade In The Nude. I had heard so many people rave about this product and decided to try it myself. Well, they were right because this is the best cream blush I have tried yet. It’s very creamy so it’s easy to apply and blend out. It settles into the skin well and lasts a long time. The shade is the perfect everyday blush shade for my skin tone. I am in love and want to pick up more shades in the future. WOW.

This product isĀ expensive which is why I got it with a gift card (should have waited until the sale oh well). I finished a sample of the Biossance Squalene + Vitamin C Rose Oil and decided to pick up the full size. This product has helped reduce my acne scarring and brighten my skin tone. I know there are cheaper vitamin c oils on the market, but with all the stuff going on I rather buy one I know that works than try a new one and not be able to return it. I am very happy to have this back in my routine because I noticed a difference in my skin when I stopped using this.

Another repurchase is the Origins Out of Trouble 10 Minute Mask. I had a sample of this mask and I feel in love. It’s amazing at helping active breakouts. I use this mask whenever I have an ugly or painful pimples and I notice a huge difference after I take off this mask. I would only recommend this mask if you have oily skin or deal with breakouts because this can be pretty drying.

I decided to repurchase my eyeshadow primer, the Smashbox 24 Hour Photo Finish Shadow Primer. Now I was considering trying other eyeshadow primers out, but the ones I wanted weren’t available. So I decided to go back to my old classic. If I don’t prime my eyelids shadow will crease on me. This one is pretty good. It has a cream colour to it but drys clear on the eyelids. I prefer to set my primer before going in with other shadows. This is the only primer that I have used for years so I have nothing to compare it to haha. Does it the job.

The final two products are my Sephora birthday gift! Sephora has a few sets, but I decided to pick up the Nars one that is exclusive to Rouge members. It comes with a mini blush in the shade Deep Throat and a Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in the shade Bad Girl. I like both of these products. The blush has a faint sheen that makes my cheeks look dewy – but without any visible glitter. I like the lip pencil because it’s a beautiful cool toned nude. I find cool-toned lips either to be really mauve or really pink. This one matches me so well. If you are a Rouge member I would recommend this set.

And that is my Sephora haul! Let me know if you guys are picking up anything during the Sephora VIB sale in the comments below.
