The holidays have come and gone and with them they brought some gift cards… to Sephora !
So, as any sane person would, I took the first opportunity to go shopping and grabbed up these great finds.
Except for a couple of items, this haul is mostly comprised of things that I have never tried before. It’s somewhat of a splurgy haul, but that’s the point of a gift card, right?
Becca Aqua Luminous Perfecting Concealer in Porcelain
Becca is the queen of creating products to make you glow. Since my skin has been cooperating lately, I’ve been searching more for products to give me a glow instead of just covering everything up and making me as matte as possible. This concealer will definitely give me a little extra glow.
Urban Decay Travel Duo
The All-Nighter setting spray and eyeshadow Primer Potion are two of my all time faves, and it was time to restock, so I opted for the travel size of both to bring along with me when I fly.
Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum Cream
I love the scent of this cream, it’s rich, thick, applies so smoothly and has a little bit of shimmer. A wonderful body cream to feel amazing.
Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Kiss Cupuaçu Lip Butter
Knowing that I love the body cream of the same range so much, I had to try the lip butter. Big surprise, it’s amazing too!
Nars Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow in Rigel
I wanted to pick up something compact that I could bring along on my frequent travels, that I could sweep all over the lid and it would look good on its own and in a neutral tone. I swatched this one in store and loved it and bought it.
Aerin Fragrance Set: A Wardrobe of 5 Scents
This travel set of Aerin scents is really great. I’ve had my eye on Amber Musk for a while now, but the full size is just so insanely pricy, I’ve never been able to splurge that much. This little set was affordable, allows me to try five different fragrances from the brand. Plus, they are small and travel friendly, which really works best for my life now.
Urban Decay Ultimate Naked Basics Palette
The newest instalment in the Naked Basic Palette family is amazing. The packaging, to start off with, is absolutely stunning. Rose gold is my favourite. The colours inside are perfect, neutral with some more bold shades as well. I have always, and still am, more of a shimmer shadow type of gal, but I have been loving using matte shades lately.
Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick
I’ve been a big fan of the matte liquid lip this fall and winter. Kat Von D does makeup well, she does it more than well actually. She creates products that are not only cruelty free, but pigmented and incredibly long lasting. These liquid lips have been very popular, it was about time I tried one out myself. No surprise, I picked a dark neutral shade.
I am super excited about this haul, I cannot wait to try them out and let you all know what I think.
Have a wonderful hump day everyone!
