Haul | MAC & Sephora VIB Sale!

It's pretty rare that I let myself splurge lately. With a house and baby on the way, there's a lot to save for. But with the past Sephora VIB sale, I had to take advantage of it and then suddenly, MAC came into play and it turned into a little shopping spree. It was awesome! My credit card on the other hand? Not feeling too awesome.

So when I opened up my Sephora box, this was on top. It's basically the rite of passage for beauty bloggers. I'm working on hitting the Sephora Rouge status. Let's not tell the fiance.

Andddd loads of samples! 

So I didn't necessarily go completely crazy but I did decide to knock some things off my "wanted" list. A lot of these I plan on reviewing so I won't go into full detail on them :)

Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder | $30 - I can't remember who I heard about this from but I do remember her saying it "made her under eye area look blurred" and I was sold. 

Tarte Amazonian Clay Waterproof Brow Mousse in Taupe | $28- I was so excited to try this out. Casey Holmes (itsbl0ndie on YouTube) recommended it and since we have the same color hair, I thought it'd work. Unfortunately, Taupe was too red for me so I took it back and all the other colors were sold out. Wah :(

NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in Custard | $29 - Another recommendation from Miss Holmes! I'm obsessed with her. Can you tell? Anywho, this concealer is amazing but I had to take it back because it was too dark. I hope to snag it in a lighter color soon!

Pro Beauty Blender Duo | $28.95 - I plan on doing a review with a comparison to the TJ Maxx "Beauty Blender" with these!


Kat Von D Chrysalis and Monarch Palettes | $40 - Did you really think it'd be a full haul without some Kat Von D? I, like everyone, swooned over these palettes! I can't wait to review them for you all. Let me know which one you want to see first! 

Lastly, from MAC. These were just stuff I had on my "wanted" list for forever and finally caved and got them. I decided to save some money and buy the Pro Palette and blush insert for like, $10 total. That way I could buy the pro pans for a little cheaper than normal.

MAC Melba Blush | $17 - Yup. I just got this. It's such a pretty color and I don't know why I waited so long. It's definitely my go-to blush right now.

MAC Sculpting Powder in Sculpt | $16.50 - Basically, I was looking for a nice matte brown to contour with and this was my answer to it. It's perfection! It's light enough to work with my light skin without going all orange-y on me but also works perfect when I'm tanned as well. 

MAC Prep + Prime Highlighter in Radiant Rose | $25 - Talk about waiting forever for a product. I had this on my "wanted" list for a year now. It was well worth the wait! At first, I wasn't a fan of the pen style applicator but now I've gotten used to it. The color is gorgeous and is perfect for highlighting with my skintone.

MAC Please Me Lipstick | $16 - I'm still on the fence on this one. The swatches showed a much lighter lipstick but on me, it's super dark. It's gorgeous color, just not what I expected. I'll still play around with this and see if it grows on me.

MAC Angel | $16 - I ended up really liking this which is odd because I don't normally like frosty finishes. It works.

Swatches of: Please Me, Angel and Radiant Rose Highlighter

Phew! So that's my haul. I also have the Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit coming in this week as well. Let me know what you'd like to see a review of first :)

  5. Super great haul. You got some great goodies. The NARS concealer and Laura Mercier Brightening Powder is AMAZING duo together. And MAC Sculpt is hands down amazing. Great for a simple eye contour too if you want a subtle brown or 'no makeup look'. Great post!!!

  7. You got some great stuff! I don't think I'll evre reach Rouge or VIB status. I tend to not shop at Sephora often because I get discounts outside of there. I'm still jealous of everyone else who reaches it.
