I am SO excited about this post! If you follow me on Instagram, you would have known by now that I am obsessed with Sephora and go in there to shop around a little or just try on new products whenever I am in the King of Prussia mall. Now, I don’t know why Sephora decided to do their April VIB Sale on a weekday, BUT I had to go, right! Not going wasn’t an option here folks 😀
So, as a loyal Sephora shopper, I went in straight after work. Got a few items, some old, some new. Got home. And then I remember that I forgot to buy some essentials. You know, when you get too excited with new stuff in front of you that you just forget other stuff- well, that is possibly what happened! So, I went online and ordered some more stuff! HAHA 🙂
Since the sale is officially going to end tomorrow, I think it was fitting to show you what I got and what you can consider buying too! Let’s just jump right in, shall we!
I LOVE this stuff. This along with Sunday Riley Luna Night Oi has done wonders for my skin. Pigmentation and acne scars have reduced so much. I mean, I can see those areas where I has spots and It’s like it was never there! Love this stuff!!
Starting off, I can’t believe I’m so hooked to this! I mean, I had tried other face masks that I really like but this one is just the best. And I am not saying this because everyone says so. I have used up 2 tubs of this mask and I will keep using it. That is because my skin is very acne-prone and this mask helps clear those out. I generally use it twice a week but if I have a big zit or an event coming up, I use it every other day. Also, since my skin is combination/oily, it tends not to dry out my skin. Had to repurchase!
Seriously, I bought this one just because I was curious. 😀 I have been reading and hearing from people that it smells really good. That is actually true, it does smell very good! But also, this stuff is moisturizing, like REALLY! And you don’t need to use much, so it lasts a little longer (which I think every other moisturizer does- that’s why, I bought it because of the reviews 😀 )
People have been going on and on and on about this stuff! Everyone I saw was saying that this is the best foundation and that it looks so natural and looks like no makeup on. True, it looks natural and is very light on skin, BUT- it is not for my skin (which is combination/oily). I wore it to an evening event knowing that pictures were going to be taken and since this has no SPF, I thought it would be perfect. And it was, until I saw it settle in my smile lines. GOD! It looked so bad!! This stuff is going back, unh unh..
Funny story how I got this one! I had ordered my stuff that I forgot to get from the store in the evening. When I went to bed, I just thought to check if my order was ready to ship or not (too impatient, can you tell?! Anyway!)So, I logged into my phone Sephora app and what I see is a new palette, that says “VIB Rouge exclusives”. I got tricked you guys! Anyway, I really like the colors in this palette. I love the golden yellow shimmer shade!! I might try to post an eye-look with this palette, just be patient with me 🙂
Also, this is my first UD palette!
This needs no introduction. Such a good exfoliator! I used it twice a week and my skin looks so clean after this. Yes, it tingles a little bit when I apply it, but beauty is pain, right (I’m sure somebody did say this! 😀 )
I really like the Becca shimmering skin perfector pressed in opal. Contrary to popular belief, I don’t find Champagne Pop that flattering on my skin tone. But opal looks beautiful, trust me. But I wanted a cream highlighter and I have tried the poured once in the store and loved it. I was just waiting for the sale to buy it! HAHA
I know, I know, Jo Malone is also available in Nordstrom. But, I don’t know, where their counter is in my nearest Nordstrom (#dumb). So, when Jo Malone came to Sephora, I was overjoyed! I have read so many good and raving reviews about their colognes that I knew I was going to get this. I got a deluxe sample of Peony and Suede Blush in one of my previous orders (which I put only to get this sample 😀 ) and I wasn’t really impressed with that. So, I ordered this Wood Sage and Sea Salt fragrance and it is so good!! In my opinion, it is kind of a unisex perfume, I mean, if a guy would wear it, I don’t think people would raise eyebrows. But, it’s a good everyday scent, although still not in top 3! (which I talked about here 🙂 )
Do I really need to say anything about this. I like hygiene, I like something gentle in the morning and this is the best, that’s it! But, this does have a sample of Philosophy’s moisturizer. I haven’t ever used it, so I can’t say if it’s good or not. Let me know if you have ever used this product!
If I had the money, I would have just bought the bottle of this, #brokeblogger. Everytime I go to Sephora, I smell this and contemplate whether I should buy this or not. So, this time, I got the roller ball! Less expensive, but I would smell good! 🙂
Well, what do I say, I need it every day since I get ready every day for work. I love this stuff! Haven’t ever liked brushes this much!!
Oh and the few extras that you select when you checkout! 🙂
Also, I received my VIB Rouge goodie, which asically means that I spent a shit ton of money there and should give it a break. Like, seriously!!
So, what did you get during the sale? Don’t tell me you didn’t because I’m already having a buyer’s remorse! :-/
Also, if you haven’t already made your purchase, then do it right now! Because today is the LAST DAY!! 🙂
