Sephora Sale: the haul

“Makeup is fun, and also sad, when your entire paycheque goes straight to Sephora”, a lovely quote from vintage ladylike circa 2016. I’m sorry bank account, but I’ve participated in the Sephora VIB sale and have made so fun purchases and thought I would share them with you! I will also update all of you folks once I’ve used these products for a few weeks!

The makeup items: the Anastasia Beverly Hill soft glam palette and the NARS Fort De France highlighter, and a beauty tool,  Fenty blending sponge since my sponges were nasty!

Okay so the NARS highlighter...honestly I got it because I was watching the Anna Edit and she loved it and I obviously want to be her so alas I bought it. It’s a very tightly packed highlighter and is a soft powder when you touch it, the packaging is heavy and luxurious! I don’t have any higher end of the high end brands of highlighters except my Anastasia glow kit I got for my birthday last year and the balm highlighter which arguably is the price of some drugstore highlighters. I feel like a real adult with my NARS highlighter.

The soft glam palette. My word this is a breathtaking palette! I don’t own any Anastasia eyeshadow palettes and lots of the shades in this palette are shades I have been eyeing in the singles. It felt meant to be if I say so myself. My favourite eye look is a wash of colour with literally any shadow and a inner corner highlight and wala a good look for the day!

Fenty Blending Sponge

Skincare. I have been on such a skincare kick lately and finding my perfect routine! I think I’ve found the perfect toner, still searching for the perfect cleanser and have found my way back to my tea tree exfoliator from the Body Shop. But that’s a post for another day. People, hold your breath (this is mostly for my mother when she reads this) I got the Caudalie vinoperfect brightening essence concentrate. Mother of pearl, this is soooooooo luxurious. I have never really considered Caudalie but as I am foraying into trying to give my skin good ingredients I found myself at the stand in Sephora! This is also a French beauty brand which I find myself (and the rest of the blog world for that matter, a bit obsessed with. I saw the word brightening and I said to myself “well I’m sold”.

Drunk Elephant and Caudalie

Now for the “big guns”, by this I mean minis of the marula facial oil and TLC Framboos glycolic night serum that is so raved about on the interwebs. I really wanted to try some drunk elephant products, but I am not going to lie this jazz is expensive and I just couldn’t commit to buying a bigger size because that is a lot of moola. Will report back when I have a used this for a month or so!

Did you get anything at the sale?! If so tell me below!
