Sephora VIB Appreciation Sale Mini Haul

IMG_1961

Hi all! I did a little haul during the recent Sephora VIB Appreciation sale.  I’m currently just an Insider (I usually shop at Ulta). I’m close to being a VIB, which will be nice for the next sale!

Here are the products I purchased.  There’s swatches at the end:

Stila Glitter On The Go Liquid Eye Shadow Set ($25) I’ve been wanting to try these for a while.  The shades are:

Rose Gold Retro – rose gold & silver                                                                                         Kitten Karma – champagne, silver & copper                                                                   Smoldering Satin – deep tan & silver

I think these are so pretty, but they are sooooo glittery.  I tried them on and they left glitter all over my face.  These definitely aren’t an every day product, so I have to firgure out where to wear them!

BITE BEAUTY French Press Lip Gloss ($18 USD) —  This collection of lip glosses contains hydrating coffee butters and arabica cold press coffee oil, and has a sweet mocha flavor.

I have heard a lot about this and especially the shade I got, Flat White. I have fair/light skin, but this is still a bit light for me. And it has more coverage than I thought it would.  It’s not sheer.  But If I use it over a darker liner or lipstick, I think it will look nice.  And it does feel creamy on, not sticky.  So I’ll continue using it.

This is the Natasha Denona Super Glow Highlighter ($38 USD) — This super-soft, lightweight formula melts into the skin. It gives a glass-like strobing effect thanks to its high concentration of crushed and milled chroma crystals mixed with crushed pearls.

I have this in the fair shade, Icy Ivory.  It’s so gorgeous!  But, it’s not really an every day glow.  But I want to use it everyday because the glow looks healthy as well as booming!  So I like to brush a little translucent powder on top to tone it down. I kind of want this in Light Medium – nude champagne next.

Swatches:

I chose 3 freebies.  The Lancome Monsieur Big Mascara is so amazing.  I was going to buy a full-sized at the Ulta sale on Friday, but I didn’t make it to the store.  This is a decent little size, so I’ll take it.  I am looking forward to trying the Marc Jacobs Shameless primer and foundation.  I did’t choose the Rahua shampoo an condition, but I’ll use them.

Did you shop the latest Sephora sale? What did you pick up? I have been shopping the Ulta 21 Days of Beauty sale (and I’m not done yet).  I will be doing at least one post on that sale!

  1. You need to use a glitter primer/glitter glue with those Stila ones to minimize fallout. I use the NYX one and it works well.

    I didn’t get anything during the sale as I had rent due that same time. Plus nothing really caught my eye and I had treated myself to a few things earlier in the month for my birthday.
