Sephora VIB Rouge hauls have getting smaller as I'm trying to use up a lot of my products before investing in new stuff. As exciting as it is to keep purchasing stuff, you also need to be grounded and realize makeup/skincare products do indeed have an expiration date. Plus my Ikea Alex Drawers where I store all my stuff is about to spit itself back out soon so I kept the haul light this year.
Everything I bought is stuff I heavily use throughout the year so it was the perfect time to restock.
Since discovering the Beauty Blender three years ago, it's all I've been using for my foundation. I still think it's a little on the pricier side so I love getting this Beauty Blender Gift Set. You get two of their original pink Beauty Blenders with a full size Liquid Cleanser. It's valued at $58 but sells for $40. I prefer the solid cleanser but the price was a steal! I only buy the Glam Glow Supermud Mask during sales because $69 isn't cheap. However during the holidays, Glam Glow tends to have gift sets like like Give Sexy Supermud Set, which is valued at $152 but sold for $69. You get a full sized Supermud, along with a 1oz of the Hydrating Treatment and 1oz of the Tinglexfoliate Treatment. The Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray Duo is sold out but I love and use this every morning to set my makeup! It truly helps even drugstore foundation last all day! The duo is $40, which is a steal since its usually $31 each.
The Murad Clarifying Cleanser, Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder, Kate Somerville EradiKate Acne Treatment, NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer, and Dior Maximizer 3D Triple Volume Plumping Lash Primer are all restocks and holy grails that I've previously blogged about!
And finally, the best for last! I've had my eye on the Sunday Riley's Good Genes All-In-One Lactic Acid Treatment for months (maybe even a year). I couldn't do it because for $105, all you get is one measly ounce. However, I hear nothing but AMAZING things on the product so I finally went for it because of the additional 20% off. I mean, the VIB Rouge sale is the time to splurge on items you wouldn't normally get. I'm excited to see how it goes and I have high expectations given the crazy high price.
The last two items are my 100 point redemption - an eye cream from Sunday Riley and Philosophy's Purity Cleanser - both products I haven't tried previously.
