Sephora's VIB Rouge Haul
Cinema Secrets Makeup Brush Cleaner Pro Starter Kit- I heard nothing but positive reviews about this magical brush cleaning product so I thought why not try it out with their mid-size bottle. I'll keep you guys posted on how I like it!
Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder- I bought the travel size of this a few months back to try it out first and I fell in absolute love with it! The setting powder sets your under-eye concealer like no other so I had to pick up a full sized. A review for this is currently sitting in my drafts so keep an eye out for that.
Laura Mercier Blush & Glow Radiant Face Trio- I wanted to experiment with more highlighters and a friend recommended one from Laura Mercier but since they had this holiday trio pack available that included a bronzer, I had to go for this instead! I tried the colors on in store and they were so beautiful. And the packaging? Let's just stop here haha.
Caudalie Mask Trio- I ended up linking just the Instant Detox Mask since this is the main product of this holiday gift pack. The trio mask pack is no longer available online so I'd check your local Sephora. The Instant Detox is of my favorite masks of all time, which you can read more about here.
Urban Decay All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray- I had a travel sized version of this and when I saw the two-pack for $40 (+ the 20%) I HAD to get it! This truly does what it claims to have your makeup last much longer. I find that it's also great to prolong the wear of drug store foundation. I linked the single product because the double pack is no longer available online.
Urban Decay Afterglow 8-Hour Powder Blush in Video- When I got my makeup down at Sephora for a wedding a few months back, this was used on my cheeks and I found that it was a great subtle everyday color so I had to add it to my growing collection of blushes.
Urban Decay Moondust Eyeshadow in Space Cowboy (2) and Cosmic- These eyeshadows are ridiculously beautiful and glittery without crossing tacky-ville. I previously bought Cosmic because it's great for a cut crease look so this is actually a gift. Space Cowboy is the color I'm adding to my collection and I bought the second for a gift as well.
Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Makeup in Cashew- I already had another color of this foundation but because my Hawaii tan faded, it was time for a new color. I use this foundation when I need to look flawless for longer periods of time because it truly lasts.
Sephora Collection Pro Contour Brush #79- I was in the market for a new contour brush as Sephora brushes never fail me so I thought why not.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Self-Made Eye Shadow Palette- I'm a sucker for eyeshadow palettes with a wide range of color and because this was a limited edition palette, I really had no choice. It's already sold out on Sephora so I linked Ulta's website.
Hourglass Immaculate Liquid Powder Foundation Mattifying Oil Free- This is my holy grail go-to daily foundation because I have oily skin and enlarged pores and this foundation blurs out all your imperfections and will keep you oil free throughout the day. You can read more about it here.
Murad Clarifying Cleanser- I received a deluxe sample of this from Sephora, which lasted me a good month and I was in love! I did not have problems growing up but during the last year, I've been battling adult acne. During my one month usage, my breakouts were less frequent and I saw a huge difference in my skin. I'm very excited to permanently add this cleanser to my skincare routine.
Dior Diorshow Maximizer Lash Plumping- I know a lot of people have never heard of eyelash primers before but I swear this is a lifesaver for those of you with short and sad eyelashes like me. This is my backup tube and it is a splurge, which is why I bought it during the sale. I apply this before mascara and it does wonders!
Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Gel- This is my go-to eyebrow gel and I go through tubes and tubes of this to keep my eyebrows in place. I have never encountered another eyebrow gel that's lasted this long.
Stila Stay All Day® Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner- This is my holy grail of holy grails and you can read more about it here.
Stila Stay All Day® Liquid Lipstick in Aria- I realized at the end of my purchase, I had no lip products in my cart and that was just preposterous! I threw in Aria since it was the perfect berry color for the Fall and I was curious to see if it was as long lasting compared to Kat Von D's or ABH's.
*Whew! Thanks for sticking with me to the very end if you're still reading. I hate ridiculously long posts but I did want to share my purchasing logic with you for everything I bought. After this purchase, I made a pact with my wallet that I am done with Sephora purchases for a while- hopefully I have the willpower to follow through. If you guys have additional questions with a specific product, I'm here to answer all your questions!
