Sephora Spring VIB Rouge Sale Haul

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).

Sephora Thunder Bay Preview Night

Sephora Thunder Bay

Hi guys! Earlier this week, I wrote a post in anticipation of the opening of Sephora Thunder Bay and I’m excited to now share with you my experience at the Preview Night which occurred the evening before the official opening. The opening of Thunder Bay’s very own Sephora in our Intercity Shopping Centre has been something I’ve dreamed of but never really thought would actually happen, but we’re here! It turns out, our region has a very high number of online sales which is what helped bring Sephora to our beautiful city. I was very thankful to receive an invitation to the Preview Night both as a VIB Rouge member and also as a beauty blogger. Continue reading

Sephora Samples

Hi guys! I love receiving samples from Sephora. It’s a great way to try new products without breaking the bank. On my last Sephora order I cashed in on some points and added took advantage of one of their weekly specials since there were some perks that interested me.

I’m excited to try this one! I haven’t tried any of the “They’re Real” products from Benefit. I don’t have high expectations for the eyeliner as I’ve heard lots of negative reviews. It took me a bit to figure out how to use it to even get a swatch. It’s a good concept, gel liner in an applicator, but it’s kind of hard to use. If you do get it to work, it seems to last. I took a makeup remover wipe to get rid of my swatches and it removed everything but the eye liner. Perhaps the makeup remover sample will do the trick! I mostly went for this kit to get the mascara. I love trying new mascaras. Continue reading
