Huge Sephora Haul!!!

Hello lovelies! Welcome back! Today I’m sharing with you everything that I’ve picked up from Sephora over the last couple of months and also some things I received for Christmas. This is stuff that has been purchased over the course of two or three shopping trips. Let’s jump right and see what I picked up.

Let’s start with eyeshadow palettes. I’m almost ashamed to share the eye palettes that I’ve picked up. Not because of what I picked up but the number of palettes that I purchased. First there is the Make Up For Ever Lustrous Shadow Palette. I picked this up because the red/cranberry shades. Next I picked up the Becca Apres Ski Glow Collection Eye Lights Palette. This palette I purchased by accident. I thought that this was a highlight palette and not an eye palette. It does look pretty and I think I will be keeping this. Next I got the ColourPop Take Me Home Eye Shadow Palette. I thought this would be a great travel option. Next I picked up the Smashbox Dawn In. Decked Out. Shadow + Highlighting Kit. I picked this up purely because I have been wanting the pearl highlight palette and I wanted to try out the cover shot eye shadows. I also picked up the Anastasia Prism Eye Shadow Palette. The colors in this palette were unique and I don’t have anything like this. There is also the ColourPop Golden State of Mind that I picked up. The last two items are the Stila Eye for Elegance Liquid Eye Shadow Set and the L’Oreal Telescopic mascara in Carbon Black. The Stila set, I had my eye on just about the entire holiday season and when I saw it in store, I knew that I needed it. The L’Oreal Telescopic mascara, clearly isn’t from Sephora, but I picked it up based on the fact that I have been hearing about it for years and was never able to find it in store. I just happened to come across this last tube on the shelf at my local Target and grabbed it.

I also picked up a few face items, that strangely focus on contouring, bronzing, and highlighting. The other thing that they have in common is that they are all made by Tarte. I first picked up the Pro Glow To Go. I thought that this would be perfect for traveling. I also picked up the Park Ave Princess Chisel Palette, and the Limited-Edition Goddess Glow Highlighter. Both items had my eye on for quite some time. I know the chisel palette is relatively new but every time I saw it I would put it in my cart and then take it out again.

Next up I purchased a couple of skincare items. I repurchased the smaller size of the Glamglow Supermud Clearing treatment. Also by Glamglow I picked up the Gravitymud Firming treatment to try out. As 100 point perks, I chose my favorite cleanser by Philosophy the Purity made simple, and by Sunday Riley Good Genes.

Now if you’ve seen my makeup collection posts or even my declutter posts, you’ll know that I have more than enough lip products. As you can tell I stocked up lip balm. I get these as a gift just about every year from a family friend. I think I haven’t bought any lip balm in at least four or five years. I received three of my favorite silk & shine, a conditioning lip serum, two ultra-rich hydration dual-layer balm, dual pack of medicated lip ointment, and two deep renewal lip balms.  Two more drugstore finds that I picked up. The first is the Revlon Kiss Plumping Lip Creme in Nude Honey. I haven’t seen anyone talk about this or review, so I’m intrigued to see how this will work. The next item is the Rimmel Exaggerate Full Colour Lip Liner in Red Diva. I picked this up because of the next item. My boyfriend gave me the Dior Rouge Dior Lipstick in 999 Matte, which is a classic red. The last lip products that I picked up from Sephora is the Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Liquified Lip Set. This was one of their holiday lip sets they came out with this year, and I’ve been really wanting to try out their liquid lips.

This last group of products are items that I received for Christmas. I got Gilmore Girls: A Year in Review. Gilmore Girls has a special place in my heart, and when I came across this in Best Buy, my boyfriend picked it up for me. I also received a makeup organizer with gold trim, an Apple TV, and not pictured because I don’t know where I placed it was Chrissy Teigen’s Cravings cookbook. As you can see I had a huge haul this time around and it made me hit the Rouge level, so I received the 56.5 mini brush.

Whew! If you’re still reading, you’ve reached the end. Thank you for staying with me during the long post. This was a huge haul and I’m excited to dig in and really start using everything. If you want to see a review or a first impression, or in a look, let me know! I’m always taking suggestions, and would love to hear from you. That’s everything. I hope that you all have a wonderful week and I’ll see you in my next post.

May Play! by Sephora Unboxing

Hello Lovelies! Today I am finally sharing my May Play! by Sephora box. I know this post is coming quite late. I asked on Twitter if any of you still wanted to see this post, and some of you still wanted to see it. So let’s crack into the box. I should’ve taken a video of me trying to figure out how to open the box. Kudos to Sephora for using black and white striped tape and placing it exactly to match the stripes on the box. So when I finally got into the box, I saw the booklet that contains all the information about what is in the box and under that a cute little bag that contained everything.

The first thing that I pulled out of the bag was the Atelier Cologne in the scent Orange Sanguine. It comes in the little sample jar without a spray top. There is also a postcard inside the packaging. the description says that there is notes of sweet blood orange and bitter orange peel, with a hint of geraniums. This seems to have a strong citrusy, orange scent, so if you like that I say go for it. This can also be an amazing scent for the summer.

Next I pulled out the Origins Maskimizer. This product should be applied as a primer for whatever face mask that you are putting on. They also included a sample of the Drink Up and Clear Improvement Masks. I think I’ve said this in another post, but I am starting to get really into skincare and taking care of my skin. I’m super excited to be trying this out.

I loved other Korres items that I have tried out in the past and I’ve had my eye on the Wild Rose Advanced Brightening Sleeping Facial for a little while now. I’ve used the Greek Yoghurt Advanced Nourishing Sleeping Facial in the past instead of a moisturizer and I can’t say enough. The only thing I don’t like about it is there is a strong floral scent to it. It’s not a horrible scent but it is very strong.

Next up is the Briogeo Don’t Despair, Repair! deep conditioning mask. I don’t have much experience with hair masks. I’ve used one in the past and I was happy with how my hair looked and felt afterwards. I’m thinking that this will be good for the summer, especially since I pretty much live in the pool all summer.

The last two items are lip products. First up is the Tarte Tarteist lip liner in Latergram. I’m super excited to try this out, but I’m not going to lie, I was a little bummed that it wasn’t a full size liner. The color of it is great and something I will definitely use. Last but not least is the Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstic in Kimchi. This color is a fantastic hot pink shade, perfect for the summer. The color is definitely out of my comfort zone, BUT I am trying wear more lip colors that I don’t normally wear.

That’s what was in my May Sephora Play! box. I hope you enjoyed this post. Stay tuned for a new post next week. If you want me to do a full review of each product from each box, let me know! I hope you all have a great weekend!
