Sephora VIB Sale Haul

This haul is kind of cheating – I bought a few of these items after the sale but I wanted to include them in this haul! This is a very skincare heavy haul but I have been wanting to revamp and try a few new higher end skincare items. First I will start with the sale items then go into the items I picked up after the sale.

The skincare

I fell into the Instagram aesthetic trap. I bought both Summer Fridays masks. The Jet lag mask and the overtime mask. I have tried both a few times and they are wonderful. I haven’t formed my full thoughts to do a review just yet but will in the future. The next two skincare items are got are both hydrating products. I bought the GlamGlow illuminating moisturizer in nude glow. It smells like a creamsickle and is AMAZING. It gives a beautiful glow and I like to use this when I have an early shift. I also picked up the Kiehl’s ginger and hibiscus firming mask. I used a sample of this and it was great.

The makeup

I broke ya’ll. I picked up the Hourglass Ambient lighting edit unlocked palette. I wasn’t going to pick this up but couldn’t resist the late night shopping so alas it happened. I LOVE this palette. I want to do a full review in due time because it is so beautiful and these are all new powder shades which is even more exciting.

The non sale stuffs

I really love Nudestix and want to do a brand focus on them. Their products are lovely and their brand story is great, and as an added bonus they are Canadian. I got both of their new limited edition holiday sets. The gloss balm set and the smokey golden eyes set. I really like both of these so far and can’t wait to try them out a bit more. The second product I got is the Too Faced Hangover Rx setting spray. I know what you may be thinking – Chrisinda you just got the Rimmel one. Unfortunately the Rimmel one makes my skin feel and look quite dry so it’s going to just have to be an eye shadow intensifier.

Okay so my wallet isn’t full and I’m not sure if I’m going to be participating this time around BUT I have some recommendations for the sale if you fancy trying something new.

If you are looking for a light coverage, lightweight, non-orange skin tint the Nudestix blur stick is the way to go. I LOVE this. I wear it over a glowy primer and of course all my skincare and it just adds the nicest tint to the skin. Warning: if you don’t like full coverage do not buy this. 

review of Tinted Blur Stick

nudestix concealer

The Nudestix concealer pencil. Again, a light coverage concealer that I plan to repurchase (eventually after I run out of my obscene amount) because its that good. While you don’t get a ton of product I think this is totally worth the money. It has beautiful light coverage and you are supporting a Canadian brand.

Becca Champagne pop

Becca champagne pop. Yes I am two years behind on this recommendation but my friends, this highlighter is beautiful. It is quite blingy, quite bold, so if you are into the subtle highlight I wouldn’t pick this but if you are into the “beam me up scotty” look then this is for you.


A skincare recommendation I think you should all try if you get the chance. The Caudalie brightening Glycolic Essence. This changed my skin. I know dramatic. However, it’s perfect for textured skin and smells delightful. Bonus it has clean ingredients.

Fenty gloss

The Fenty Gloss bomb is another product I can’t recommend enough. It really is a universally flattering lip gloss. It has a nice rose gold sheen that makes your lips look like glass.

huda beauty

A newer product to my collection but the Huda Beauty Obsessions palettes. I have the coral one and LOVE IT. The pigmentation is unreal, they blend like a dream and have a colour story to suit everyone’s tastes!
