Sephora VIB Sale Haul
Attention beauty lovers, you still have time to run (not walk) to Sephora for the Beauty Insiders Sale. Or even better stay in your sweats and order online! Today is the last day for all Insiders to receive 10% off your order and all VIB and VIB Rouge members have until the 24th to receive 15% off your order.
I absolutely love this sale and use it as an excuse to stock up on some of my favorite beauty items. But it's also a great excuse to try some new products as well. I shared a mini haul on my Insta-stories yesterday but I'm excited to share my entire haul here!
Unless you've been living under a rock I'm sure you've heard about this blush. (Shout out to Stacy for making me buy this years ago when I finally ditched my cheap makeup and came to the dark side). I love NARS blushes and have several favorites. Since I was running low on this particular color I decided the sale was the perfect time to restock. I've re-bought this several times and make sure to never run out of this color since it can be worn year round. If you haven't tried NARS blushes before I highly recommend you do. They're so pigmented yet blend so well. We can't be walking around looking like a clowns after all!
I received this as a gift in the travel size and instantly fell in love! While I already have thick dark eyebrows I don't really need this for the thickening aspect, but I do love it for the taming. Nobody wants crazy brows! It keeps my brows intact all day while adding a little volume. You can add more volume with more strokes and layering. It comes in three colors so you should be able to find a match that works for you. I'm a 5, "dark brown to black" because remember I have insanely dark eyebrows (thanks dad!) But seriously, I'm so happy thick/dark eyebrows are back in style because mine are large and in charge and always have been.
O.M.G! This primer is absolutely amazing. I realize this is on the pricey side for a primer, but you need the tiniest amount for your whole face. You only need half a pump so the bottle will last you a really long time. It feels so silky and does such a great job reducing the appearance of pores, fine lines and wrinkles. And it's SPF 15! Now if I could just go back in time and tell my younger self just how important SPF is I totally would! Seriously, the amount of sunburns I got on my face while skiing during spring breaks over the years is out of control!
I am so excited to try this product. I enjoy watching Jaclyn Hill's Youtube videos in the morning while doing my own makeup and I've been wanting to try this highlighter but hadn't bought it because I have SO many other highlighters. #GiveMeAllTheHighlighters (An entire post to come soon on all my favorites). So far I've only swatched this product but I'm already in love. The soft white/gold with pinky peach undertones will be perfect for this spring and heading into summer. "Highlight on FLEEK!"
This is another product I have yet to try but am really excited about. This brand prides itself on being one of the first preservative-free, botanically based skin care lines. I wear makeup almost daily so I'm always looking for the best products to help completely rid of my face of all makeup and residue. It had almost 5 stars with over 2000 reviews online. Yes I'm a review junkie and I can't wait to share my review with all of you.
One of the reasons I love Sephora so much is for the samples you can get. It's so nice to be able to try before you buy with these higher priced items. Good foundations are almost an investment they're so expensive! I got a sample of the Giorgio Armani Power Fabric Longwear High Coverage Foundation while I was in Chicago last week for work and it's "the bomb dot com." I tired the Luminous Silk Foundation that everyone raves about and hated it, I much prefer a full coverage foundation to a lighter coverage. And I really like having several favorites to rotate between at the same time. I'm so excited to have found this one so I can add it to the rotation! My color is 4, but there are SO many different shades to choose from i know you can find your perfect match. It's also SPF 25, can't forget that SPF!
Any discount I can get on my Clarisonic facial brush heads I'll take! No, these aren't overly pricey but now is the perfect time to stock on for the year. I received my Mia2 a few years ago from my in-laws for Christmas and I still love it! I haven't used it recently though since I've needed a replacement brush head, so this sale was the perfect excuse for me to finally buy that replacement. I went with the Sensitive brush head this time. I didn't used to consider my skin sensitive or troubled, but shortly before my 30th birthday my skin started getting out-of-control! Hopefully this new brush head helps clear up some of my problem areas. Can't wait to use this after my new boscia makeup-breakup oil. I'm expecting squeaky clean skin from the two products! And to look 10 years younger again, is that too much to ask for!?
I can't wait to hear about your Sephora Beauty Insider Haul! What are your favorite products you got from the sale?
