Hi everyone! I haven’t done a haul in awhile so I thought I’d show a little haul for you! I bought a few items during the Sephora VIB sale and wanted to share what I bought.
I really didn’t get that much actually, as I have a ton of stuff from my boxes to try out and use. I was talking to my work bestie Erin and we agreed that somehow these VIB sales always occur when we either 1) don’t have money to spend or 2) don’t need anything.
Ah well, what can you do. So I actually made an online order first a few days ago and used my two day shipping so I got my stuff yesterday, a full day earlier than estimated. Then I went to the store today to pick up another item as I did want to use my card with 50 points from my Sephora Play Box which I can only use in stores. I figured that if I was going to use it I might as well get 20% off at the same time. So here’s what I got!
From my order I got two full sized Urban Decay All Nighter Long Lasting Makeup Setting Spray. I think this is pretty much the entire world’s favorite. I’m very nearly out of my previous bottle so I decided to stock up as I truly can’t live without this.
Next I ordered the Burberry Festive Beauty Box. I love Burberry but it is quite expensive so I figured this was a good way to try some products. Unfortunately I didn’t look at the size of the products and I was quite disappointed at how small they are. I didn’t expect it to be full sizes but I definitely didn’t think they would be that tiny! I think it is cute and I do like the items just based on looks but I don’t know if this is worth the money. I kind of wish I had gotten something else now.
And the last thing I bought for myself is the full size of the IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Illumination Concealer. I got a sample of this in one of my Sephora Play Boxes and absolutely loved it so I decided to pick one up. This is the product I got in store and I was so confused as I didn’t see the brand. Finally I asked an employee who pointed me in skin care which I hadn’t checked. Once I was there, another helpful employee showed me where it was! I’m so excited to add this to my collection.
Oh and I’ll add the samples I got in my online order. So you can always select your samples but in my experience you never actually get those. I had requested a sample of a foundation from Giorgio Armani, Marc Jacobs primer, and Benefit concealer. I got exactly zero of those items and instead got other samples which weren’t really close to what I wanted to try. I got a sample of Cover FX Mattifying Primer with anti-acne treatment, which might actually be something I’ll like. Then I got a sample of Lancome La Base Pro Perfecting Primer, so at least they took the primer portion of my request seriously. And then I got a sample of Atelier Cologne in Mandarine Glaciale which I haven’t smelled yet but it sounds interesting. I do wish you could get what you actually request but ah well, they should be interesting products to try too.
And that’s it really! I didn’t want to spend too much money as I really don’t think I need anything (remember my post on how I organize my makeup? I’m already a makeup hoarder). The other items I got are presents for my mom so I don’t want to spoil those as I did share my blog with her once and for all I know she probably still stalks it without telling me! (Mom, are you stalking me?!)
Let me know if you picked up anything from Sephora during the VIB sale! And if you don’t have a Sephora near you, have you bought anything makeup or skin care related you want to tell me about?
Thanks for reading!
