Sephora VIB Sale Haul

Monday, May 8, 2017

Today I'm finally sharing with you all my Sephora VIB sale haul! Most the items I purchased were back ups of current favorites, but I did purchase a few new items I have been wanting to try. 


Benefit Galifornia Blush
How could I pass up purchasing this blush! Come on, it's a blush called Galifornia and I'm a California girl. Every California girl needs this pink blush with gold shimmer in their life.

Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat Blur Primer
I have been wanting to try this primer for so long and my first impression of this primer is beyond words. I've only been using it for a little over a week and I'm pretty impressed. I'll get back to you guys a little later with my final thoughts on this primer.

Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder
I conveniently ran out of my beloved Laura Mercier Translucent Powder right before the sale, so I purchased another because I just can't live without it. If you want to read more about my love for this powder, check out this post.

NARS Soft Matte Complete Concealer
NARS Radient Creamy Concealer is my holy grail, desert island, ride or die concealer. When I heard NARS was coming out with a new concealer, I just had to try it. So far I don't hate this concealer, but I don't love it. I think I just need more time to try it out and experiment with it before I make my final opinion.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz in Taupe
The Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz is my favorite brow product. It's easy to use and is long lasting. I usually use the shades Medium Brown or Soft Brown, but I decided to give the shade Taupe a try. I thought it would be too light for my dark eyebrows, but it actually blends in well and matches my blonde hair perfectly.

Make Up For Ever Step 1 Skin Equalizer Nourishing Primer
Another product I conveniently ran out of right before the sale was my favorite primer for dry skin, the Make Up For Ever Nourishing primer. If you want to read more about this primer, check out this post.

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara
I also picked up a back up of my favorite mascara, the Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara, because my current one is going to dry out any day now. If you want to read more about why I can't live without this mascara, check out this post.


Origins Bedtime Bests
Origins is my favorite skincare brand and this sampler pack is such a deal, I've bought two of them. It comes with a full size of my favorite night cream, a deluxe size of my favorite face mask, a deluxe size of Origins famous face wash, a deluxe size of their spot treatment, and a beautiful makeup bag.

Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask
I feel like a broken record telling you guys how much I love this lip mask and can't live without it. If you want to read more about the Bite Agave Lip Mask, check out this post.

Belif The True Cream Aqua Bomb
I restocked my favorite day moisturizer, the Belif Aqua Bomb. This moisturizer is perfect for my dehydrated combination skin. It keeps my skin moisturized throughout the day, but is also light enough to be worn under makeup.

First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Lip Therapy
The FAB Ultra Repair Lip Therapy is my favorite everyday lip balm. I go through so many of these! Probably about one a month, that I bought three during the sale.

Caudalie Vinosource S.O.S Thirst Quenching Serum
I have such dehydrated skin, that this serum saves my skin's life every day, so I stocked up on a new bottle before my old bottle runs out. I combine this serum with my daily moisturizer to keep my thirsty skin hydrated throughout the day.

Caudalie Grape Water
The Caudalie Grape Water has become such a staple in my life. It helps set my makeup in the morning and keeps my makeup looking fresh throughout the day. I keep a bottle with me in my purse, one at my work, and one at my makeup desk so I'm never without it. I'm just short of obsessed if you can't tell.

Peter Thomas Roth Irish Moor Mud Purifying Black Mask
I've been wanting to try this mask for a long time! (If you don't believe me, check out this post.) I am a face mask junkie and this face mask has everything I'm looking for in a good face mask. It's said to be clarifying and hydrating at the same time. I've only used it once, and my grandma asked me if I was going to a Halloween party when she saw it on my face, but it seemed to work well. I'll keep you updated on my thoughts on this face mask.


Alterna Bambo Smooth Anti-Breakage Thermal Protection Spray
I have very damaged hair due to dying it blonde for the past 12 years and going through a phase of straightening my already very straight hair in high school and part of college. I also use a lot heat on my hair from blowdrying and curling it every week. So having a good heat protectant is very important to me. I've been wanting give this heat protectant a try for a while because of it's really good reviews, so I'll let you know what I think of it soon.

Bumble & Bumble Surf Foam Spray Blow Dry
The only reason why my hair has any texture and holds a curl when I curl my hair is because of this hair product. The Bumble & Bumble Surf Foam Spray is the perfect combination of salt spray and mousse that gives my hair that perfectly textured volume my board straight hair needs.


Huda Beauty Classic False Lashes in Giselle
I love the Huda Beauty Giselle lashes and I decided to pick up a pair because I have a few events coming up that I want my lashes to look their very best! If you want to read more about these lashes, check out this post.

Too Cool For School Dinoplatz Dear Brachiosaurus Blotting Sheets in Mulberry
I have combo skin, which means I do get oily from time to time, especially in the summer months, but I'm also a cheap person, so I usually combat my oily skin with Starbucks napkins or toilet seat covers. (Don't judge me you know you've been there.) Well, you should be happy to know, I finally decided to try some real blotting sheets, and my mind is blown! I've only used these a few time, most recently at Disneyland last weekend, but I think these are going to become a new staple in my beauty routine.
