Good Evening Beauty Lovers!
The best time to shop at Sephora has arrived again guys and girls! Of course I’m talking about the 20% off sale for all VIB members that Sephora has every November. This is a great time to stock up on your beauty favorites or to try something new that’s always been too expensive to purchase. This year I didn’t purchase a lot since I recently just bought a lot of stuff. However, I thought I’d still share my purchases! I hope you guys enjoy!
What I Purchased:
The first thing I had to purchase was a couple more shades of the Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Lipsticks. I did a previous post all about how much I have been obsessing with these liquid lipsticks. They have truly become one of my favorites! So naturally I needed at least two more shades. The first shade I decided on was Gossip Gurl. This is a true everyday pink shade. I am on the hunt for the perfect pink so I had to give this one a try. Then I picked up the shade Famous. Famous is a gorgeous burgundy shade. I obsess over the color burgundy! I find it to be beautiful on anyone that wears it, and it is perfect for this time of year! Seriously, if you haven’t tried these yet you need too!
For years I have heard people rave about the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide on lip pencils. So finally I gave into the hype and purchased one. I haven’t had the chance to try it on my lips yet, but from swatching it I can already tell I will love it. It glides on super smooth, and it gives a good amount of pigment. I decided to go with the shade Hex because it is a deep wine shade. I don’t have any other lip liners this color, and I thought it would pair beautifully with a lot of my lipsticks. I can’t wait to try this on the lips!
For my final purchase I decided on the Sephora Favorites Extravagant Eyes set. This set really caught my eye, and I liked the idea of getting to test out a few new products. The great thing about sets like this is you get some samples to try before committing to paying full price for the individual products.
What the set includes:
- Milk Makeup Eye Pigment in the shade Silent Disco
The first product is a sample size of the Milk Makeup eye pigment in the Shade Silent Disco. This is a brown shade with lots of glitter in it. I will say the glitter reflects are pretty, but I am not a big fan of glitter on my eyes. A slight sheen or metallic finish is great, but a lot of glitter is not my thing. I also noticed as I tried blending this product out it become less pigmented and more glitter showed through. I will definitely keep playing with it though. It is such a gorgeous color I have to try to make it work for me!
- Marc Jacobs O!Mega Lash Volumizing Mascara in the shade Blacquer
Next in the kit you get a sample size of the Marc Jacobs O!Mega Lash Volumizing Mascara. This mascara comes in six different shades, and it retails for $26 US. This line of mascara comes in mostly bright colors, but this set includes the black shade. It claims to deliver high-drama lashes while being ultra volumizing. I have never tried a Marc Jacobs product at all so I am excited to try this one out. I love volumizing mascaras, and it will be great to try this one since it is a more expensive one.
- Sephora Collection Waterproof Contour Eye Pencil 12 hour wear in Black
This is another product I have never tried, but I am always up for trying new black eyeliner. This one has definitely already impressed me when I swatched it. It is creamy, pigmented, and once it set it did not budge off my hand without makeup remover. I can’t wait to try this one out on my waterline to see how it holds up throughout the day. I have high hopes for this ones.
- Smashbox 24 Hour Photo Finish Shadow Primer
This is another product that I have heard people rave about, but have never tried. The main reason I stayed away from this is because it sets clear. I prefer my eye primers to have pigment to them so that they conceal the veins and redness on my eyes. However, I have heard great things about how well this one works. It is meant to keep your eye shadow budge proof for a long amount of time. I will definitely give it a try even though it is clear.
- Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner in the shade Midnight Cowboy
This is probably the product in the set that I am least excited about to be honest. As I previously mentioned I am not a fan of glitter on my eyes, and this liner is meant to be glittery. Midnight Cowboy has been raved about many times on Youtube in the past. It is a pretty beige glitter. I may attempt to use this or I may just pass it on to a friend who will get more use from it. Good quality, but it is just not something I will grab on a regular basis.
- Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colour in the shade Plum
These are described as a multitasking eye shadow stick. They are supposed to be a long-lasting cream eye shadow stick. They come in 11 shades, and in the kit you get the shade Plum. Plum is a gorgeous dark purple color. I think it will be great for a dark purple smokey eye look. I have not tried these before, but I am excited to see how well it works on the eyes.
- Nars Dual Intensity Eye Shadow in the shade Himalia
Himalia is a gorgeous topaz color with a high shimmering glow. I am most excited to try this product out of the whole set! I think this color is gorgeous, and I know I will use it a lot. It is perfect for an everyday eye shadow. These regularly retail for $29 US. That is the only reason I have never purchased one. They always caught my eye, but that price is so high! This is meant to be a long-lasting shadow that can be applied wet or dry. Honestly the intensity it gives with just one swipe dry is perfect for me. These shadows are expensive, but gorgeous. Honestly, this is the main reason I purchased this specific set. You do get the full size of this eye shadow when you buy the kit. Along with everything else you get I think it’s a great deal!
- Huda Beauty Lashes #7 Samantha
The last thing in this set is the #7 Samantha lashes from Huda Beauty. I already own a pair of these, but it is great to have a back up pair. Huda Beauty lashes are gorgeous! On me personally they all look dramatic. I have smaller eyes so lashes can easily over power them. These are definitely lashes I would wear on a night out since they are so dramatic on me. They aren’t everyday lashes for me, but it is still exciting to get them. They will still be used from time to time.
That is everything that I picked up during the sale this year! I really hope everyone enjoys reading about these products. I am excited to give them a try, and you can expect reviews on some of them in the future. I’d love to hear about some of the things you guys bought during the sale so feel free to comment below!
