VIB Rouge status is something I never thought I would hit at Sephora. To be honest
it is a bit embarrassing, due to you have to spend over $1000 in a year to qualify. I
admit that being a beauty blogger and makeup artists it is a bit more
understandable. During the recent Sephora VIB & Friends and Family sale I placed not 1,
but 2 orders within a few days. I wanted to pick up a few more things, but what
really started the second order was that I ran out of foundation two days after
placing my first order. Lovely right?
Of course this need for foundation caused me to pick up a few more items. I mean
who orders just one thing from Sephora? I admit that what I picked up this time I
have had on my Sephora wish list since last year.
1-MARC JACBOS Beauty O!Mega Tan Bronzer in Perfect Tan Tantric 102 $49 First of all this bronzer has more names than I have ever seen on a product. I first heard about this product from Melissa on YouTube, which she is amazing and I recommend you check her out. I honestly feel that this bronzer will last me for a lifetime due to the size. You definitely get a lot of bang for your buck with this product. I love how matte this bronzer is and how the shade flatters my skin. If you are in the market for a matte bronzer and want to go high-end I suggest you check out this one.
Contains three shades: Dim Light, Incandescent Light, and Radiant Light. The
The shades are more of a setting powder, highlight, and bronzer shades on
my medium skin tone. I personally love the texture of these powders. I find
that they are great at blurring imperfections, but they are not by any means a
matiffying powders. I tend to use a matte powder in the mornings, but due to
it looking a bit flat, topping it with these powders gives my skin life.
3- Dior 5 Couleurs Palette in #734 Grege $60
This palette is the one I have been waiting the longest for, and is inspired by
Tiffany D on YouTube. I do recommend keeping the velvet bags on these
palettes due to it keeping them from getting scratched up. Overall, this
palette is as pretty as I ever imagined. I am absolutely obsessed with this
palette. I know some high-end palettes are hit and miss, but this one is
definitely a hit.
4- GlamGlow Gift Sexy $69
This set is one amazing deal. Just one full size retails for $69 and the small
ones retail for $19. So really you are only paying for the full size and are
getting the other two free. I have been wanting to try this brand for a long
time now, but have always been put off by the price. I plan on doing an in
depth post on this product later to share my thoughts on this. For now all I
will say is that you need to pick it up if you have been wanting to try this line.
This set homes with the new hydrating mask, as well as the original masks
from this line.
5- Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation in Desert Beige 2N1 $37
This is my holy grail foundation and is one I recommend for combination to
oily skin. I do not believe I will ever go without this foundation due to how
well it holds up on my extremely oily skin. In short all I can say is that this is
6- MARC JACOBS Plush eyeshadow palette in Lolita $59 My thoughts on this are that this palette contains gorgeous shadows that are smooth. The two shimmer/glitter shades are the two I am least impressed with. I found that the colors were very similar, but still really pretty. Were these shades that different from other palettes of mine, not really. The reason I can justify this purchase is due to the texture of the shadows. They are the most creamy shadows that I have in my collection. I’m loving this palette and can’t wait to pick up a few more.
7- Smashbox Master Class Palette Vol III
Wow this palette packs a punch! It is much more sturdy than the volumes before it.
8- NARS Narssasits Palette
This palette has I really recommend for those that may be beginning with makeup due to how easy the shades are to blend and build. They are not colors you can really screw up your makeup look with so I really ended up loving this. It got some pretty low rating on Sephora but I really do love this palette!
That’s everything! I know it is quite a bit, but I decided to take advantage of the 20%
off. Make sure you check back for
more in depth reviews that are to come. What have you recently hauled?
Yes, it has been about a month since I hauled this but I really like testing out products before I haul them. I will have more detailed reviews up soon, but I wanted to go ahead and post this for those of you who may be thinking of getting any of these for Christmas. What have you recently hauled?
