Hi, loves! Happy Friday! I wasn’t planning on posting a haul today, but I got some e.l.f. products on the mail earlier so I decided to show you what I got alongside the products I bought on the Sephora Annual VIB Sale. There is also a random eyeliner from MAC that I picked up because it had been on my wishlist for so long.
I think I got a bit carried away and bought too much stuff, but 20% off your entire order at Sephora is a great opportunity to get things you’ve always wanted to buy. I also picked up some items for a swap (not shown of course) and treated this purchase as an early birthday present since my birthday is in December. All in all, I saved a lot of money on things I was going to buy eventually anyways.
Enough justifications, on to the products! 🙂 Also, since the Sephora sale was last week I’ve had a chance to use some of the products already so I will give you some quick thoughts on them:
MAKE UP FOR EVER Holodiam Powder in “302”: The Holodiam Powders are some holographic duo-chrome pigments/glitters/pearls that were released recently for the holidays. These sold out so fast! And I can see why. I’ve already used this and it will be featured in tomorrow’s Try It Out Thursday. It’s beautiful in person!
MAKE UP FOR EVER Eyeshadows in “159” and “92”: I can’t wait to post about MUFE eyeshadows. I’ve been so impressed with them. These in particular are an extremely pigmented blue and a very bright purple.
ILLAMASQUA Nail Varnish in “Kink”: I was so impressed with my first Illamasqua nail polish that I wanted to try another one. I posted a NOTD on Illamasqua’s “Creator” and that nail polish lasted a week on my nails with minimal tip wear. I ended up removing it, not because it chipped, but because I broke a nail while cleaning.
NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in “Dragon Girl”: I’ve wanted this lipstick for so long! It’s a bright blue-toned red that will be perfect for the holidays. I haven’t used this yet.
TOO FACED La Creme Lip Cream in “Fuchsia Shock”: These lipsticks have gotten a lot of rave reviews. I’ve already used it an it’s really good, very moisturizing The packaging is very luxurious. The color is a bright fuchsia pink.
ILLAMASQUA Powder Blush in “Lover”: This will be the last peach colored blush I buy! I have too many already. The color is beautiful though. And it’s amazingly soft.
GUERLAIN Rouge G L’Extrait in “Avarice”: I’ve always wanted to try a luxury lipstick just to see what they were like (and what a better time than when it’s 20% off). I had my heart set on a YSL lipstick, but the shades I wanted were already sold out. I ended up getting this, which was my second choice. It’s amazing! The color is a nude beige and it’s perfect for everyday.
MAC Chromagraphic Pencil in “NC15/NW20”: I’ve wanted a nude eyeliner for a long time. I tried to get the one from Rimmel but since it’s so popular right now, it was always sold out at the stores.
e.l.f. Studio Blush in “Pink Passion” and HD Blushes in “Headliner”, “Diva”, and “Superstar”: These arrived today. I’ve never tried anything from e.l.f. before. These products are super popular. Most of the shades were sold out so this is what I was able to get. I’m excited to try them!
