So, the Sephora VIB sale happened a bit ago and I tried soooo hard to ignore it. I had put myself on an extremely low-buy budget when it comes to beauty products and since I started in January, I can honestly say I’ve been behaving. Until this sale….
I had managed to stay away from the website until the night before the sale was over. I was lying in bed and I couldn’t sleep so I turned on my phone, went to the Sephora app and started “looking”. Before I knew it, my cart was full and I was checking out. Oopsie!! Wanna see what I got!? Here it is!
First up, the Sephora Favourites Power of the Petal set…yes that’s right, another Favourites set…i’m addicted. This one is all skincare and I can’t wait to start trying some of the products. I cannot say if this set is still available at Sephora or not but I plan on doing a review/post of the products either way because the products are available for individual purchase.
Next, Buxom lip products. These Lip Polishes and Lip Creams are some of my favourites. Love these formulas! I picked up (from left to right) the Full-On Lip Cream in White Russian and the Full-On Lip Polishes in Erin and Lily.
I needed a new serum and eye cream so I decided to try some products that are new to me. I chose the REN Keep Young and Beautiful Instant Firming Beauty Shot and the Laneige Water Bank Eye Gel. I also saw a little duo of masks by Laneige for a great price so I grabbed those too. The Boscia Thermal Black Cleanser was a purchase inspired by Lisa Eldridge. She was talking about it in a video and it sounded interesting. I have been looking for a cleanser to use that’s a bit stronger, in the evenings after removing makeup. Hopefully this one does not disappoint!
Lastly, a few makeup bits. My skin is extremely fair. Summer is coming so I thought I would try out a self tanner that I hadn’t used before. I chose the James Read Self Tan Bronzing Mousse. I have high hopes for this guy! The Viseart Cool Mattes 07 palette was first on my list. These palettes are my favourite shadows but they are also very pricey so I pick them up at sale times. The Sephora Waterproof Retractable Brow Pencil in 05 Neutral Grey Brown was something I had been eyeing for a bit. I have read good reviews and I’m hoping it’s a dupe for the ABH Brow Wiz. We shall see! And last but not least, YSL Les Sahariennes Sun-Kissed Blur Perfector Healthy Glow Balm-Powder in shade 2 Sable (longest name for a product ever, maybe!?). I wanted to try a cream/balm type bronzer but there aren’t many to choose from on the Sephora site. This is my first YSL product and it has good reviews so hopefully it’s a good one!
So that’s what I purchased! I’m going to play with things a bit and then do some reviews in the next few weeks or so. Keep an eye out for that!
Thanks for reading! I hope you all have a beautiful day today!
