Guess what’s back. Back again. I’m doing a haul post. Tell a friend. That’s right ladies and gents it is time for another haul, but not just any haul… a Sephora Haul! I went in to get concealer, and I left with a bag of goodies! So I guess this is the perfect opportunity to do a haul. Before I begin, I just want everyone to know that I only do hauls if I think these are items my readers will use. Now that’s covered, lets begin!
I’ve heard positive things about Smashbox’s Photo Finish Primer. Ingrid Nilsen, beauty YouTuber, used this in her last video. I have to agree with her, wearing makeup during the summer can be an issue and where I’m from it gets up to 104 degrees. I don’t want to my makeup to melt off my face. So far, I really like it; it’s light weight and super smooth. It also keeps my makeup on my face! Good job Smashbox for doing what you’re suppose to do 🙂
Remember when I went in for concealer? Well, this is it. I never used concealer until I started using Latisse. One of the side effects using Latisse is dark stained skin underneath the eyes, which I was luckily enough to experience. It gave me the appearing that I have dark circles, which is something I never had. I really like NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer because it covers the Latisse stain, it looks natural and it stays on all day. I’ve tested other concealers brands and they made me look like I have wrinkles under my eyes except for NARS. This concealer is also perfect if you want to do a mini contouring or cover up a blemish.
Beauty Blender Sponge
First off, let me say I love the beauty blender sponge!!! I have a concealer brush but it was hard to reach the closest part of my eye. This sponge does that and when you blend your concealer, it looks effortless. It’s also super easy to use and blend. If can’t push you to get this sponge, Kim Kardashian West.
If you’re wondering why my beauty sponge is pink and not red like the pic above, it’s because I own the pink one but I decided to buy another one. I wash my brushes and sponges once a week but I know sponges and brushes holds a lot of bacteria. With my super sensitive skin, I would rather buy another sponge than risk getting a breakout. I can switch off using it now that I have 2 sponges!
YSL Lip Balm
I like how lip glosses look, but I hate that goopy feeling. I have long hair and when I wear lip gloss, my hair gets stuck on my lips. Not a cute look. YSL has a lip balm that looks like lip gloss but it’s super light and not sticky. I got YSL’s Lush Coconut; it’s a nude shade with a hint of gold shimmer. I know this is kinda expensive, but it’s worth the money. It’s super hydrating and it smells really good. Also, I think this lip balm complements my skin tone. YSL’s products are perfect so it’s not a surprise that I fell in love so quickly.
Travel Size Bumble and Bumble
I love to travel but I hate the hotel’s shampoo and conditioners; it makes my hair feel like I have a wire texture. That probably doesn’t help my colored hair either. Since I’ve been traveling more, I ran out of my travel size shampoo and conditioner. I found Bumble and Bumble’s color minded in a travel size. I use the bigger size of this every other day so I already know how this product works. This is also less than the liquid size you can bring in your carry-on.
Too Faced Bronzer
I love my Bobbi Brown Bronzer, but sometimes you need to change up your makeup. I decided to get the Too Faced Soleil Matte Bronzer; a couple of months ago I received a sample size… and I used it all up. I blame the chocolate smell. I decided to get the original size, in Chocolate, because I loved it so much! Hopefully it will last 🙂
I love that Sephora has a rewards program. Whatever you spend, it adds up as points and you can get free goodies. When I went in, I found out I finally made it to a VIB Rogue member! Sephora gave me a Marc Jacobs red lipstick. It’s so pretty that I am afraid to try it on.
I also had enough points to get other goodies. I got a small bottle of Benefit’s mascara and NARS Orgasm lip gloss. These sample sizes are perfect for your purse or to put in a goodie bag. And if I lost it, I wouldn’t feel as guilty compared to the actual size.
And that is the end of my Sephora Haul! If you liked today’s post make sure to click the like button and comment below! If you haven’t already, subscribe to my blog! I post every Tuesday and Thursday, with an occasional weekend post 🙂 Have a great weekend!!
