It’s that time of the year again, the annual Sephora VIB sale for the fall season has nearly come and gone. I initially wasn’t planning on picking up much but this sale always falls around my birthday so between treating myself and a few gift cards I ended up with three hauls this go around. I didn’t make a wish list this time around but I’m quite happy with the products I chose, even if my husband was stuck browsing at Sephora longer than he would have liked, haha! Continue reading
It’s been awhile since I’ve done a collective haul post so I thought I’d share with you all the products I purchased during the month of August since the month is nearly over. Where did July and August go? I feel like I say this every summer but they just disappear so fast! However, rather than talking about how I already miss those sweet summer months let’s chat about the products I purchased this month! Continue reading
I love a good mail day. Yesterday my Orabel order arrived which made it a great mail day. I’ve followed Orabel for quite awhile on Instagram but this was actually my first time ordering from them. Orabel is a Canadian online store that brings brands typically found on American and European websites to Canadians. My focus for this order was Makeup Revolution products but I also threw in a Morphe product to get myself over the free shipping threshold. Continue reading
A few weeks ago Colourpop had another BYOP (build your own palette) sale where you could order a custom palette at a discounted price. I have enjoyed the pressed eyeshadows that I have ordered from them in the past so I thought it would be fun to build a palette of my own. I very rarely order single shadows so I spent a lot of time thinking about what shades I would want in my palette. I think the results were a very ‘me’ palette… a mix of neutrals and colourful shades. It’s also 50/50 mattes and shimmers which is what I like to see in a palette.
Happy New Year everyone! Though I plan on sharing both my NYE makeup look and my 2018 favourites, I thought I’d first start off the year by posting my collective haul from December. I actually bought quite a bit of makeup from Sephora last month between the $25 off purchases of $75+ coupon code earlier in the month and then gift cards I received for Christmas. So let’s take a look at what I picked up last month. Continue reading
The Sephora VIB Sale is still underway but I did my shopping last weekend when the sale started for rouge members. I actually for the most part didn’t stray too far from my list and restrained from purchasing everything on said this. I think this is the first time I’ve only purchase ONE palette during the fall sale. Nonetheless I am excited about what I did pick up and am looking forward to starting to play with it all! Continue reading
Last week I posted my Sephora Spring VIB Rouge Sale Wish List so it seems fitting today, now that my online order has come in, to share with you what I bought! Unlike in the fall, I was actually healthy during the first access weekend for VIB Rouge so I actually got to go to the store this time. I went Friday during the day so it was really quiet in there so it made for a quick and efficient shopping experience. Unlike past sales, I actually, for the most part, stuck to my wish list! I did add one item as I had been looking at it online in the days leading up to the sale. But otherwise I was in and out of the store in less than 15 minutes! I already talked about most of these items so I’m not going to be going into detail on why I chose them like I usually do (because normally I go in a totally different direction than my wish list).
When I saw that Colourpop released a new Lux line of lipsticks, I was instantly intrigued. Seemed like a great time to place my first Colourpop order of 2018! Not only did I pick up a couple Lux Lipsticks I picked up a few other goodies that I’ve had my eyes on for awhile. What I love about Colourpop is that it is so budget friendly! I got all of the items pictured for under $50 USD (excluding shipping)! So let’s take a peak at what I picked up, shall we?
I think one of the best parts about the VIB Rouge Sale in the fall is that it is always right around my birthday. Between the desire to treat myself and a few generous gift cards (thank you to my family!), I usually end up with a pretty decent haul. The last of my packages arrived yesterday so I’m ready to share the damage with you!
Eye Shadow Palettes
Violet Voss | Ride or Die Eyeshadow Palette
I had only intended to get one palette during this sale, the Anastasia Beverly Hills Prism Eyeshadow Palette, however, another gift card rolled in around the same time I got the “back in stock” email so it seemed like fate. I’m so glad that Sephora is carrying Violet Voss now. I bought their collaboration palette with Laura Lee last year and really loved it. It was a bit pricy but the 20% off made it worthwhile and they really do make great eye shadows. Continue reading
Hi guys! We aren’t quite at the end of the month yet, but I’m ready to share what I’ve hauled over the course of the month with you. It was supposed to be a small haul this month, however great deals and discounts seemed to change that quickly. So, let’s check out what caught my eye and came home with my this month!
I ordered both of these items separately but it made sense to group them together in one photo. The first item I purchased this month was the Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip Brow in the shade Ash Brown. I had got a sample of this last month and loved how it matched my darker hair better than the Taupe shade that I used to use. Later on in the month when the Anastasia Beverly Hills Lip Palette was part of the Sephora Wow Deals, I just could not pass it up. I wanted it when it first came out and ended up passing on it, but at 50% off I couldn’t say no. I’m excited to play with mixing different lipstick shades! Continue reading
