Needing some new items for myself and my kit, I did little mini haul at Sephora. I decided to get a few items in the deluxe size so I could try them out before I bought the full sizes. I also spent some VIB Points to get some deluxe sizes for my kit as well.
The first thing I picked up for myself was the Too Faced Primed & Poreless Pressed Powder.
I really needed something I could carry in my purse and the packaging is to die for! It also comes with a cute puff for on the go application.
The next item I picked up for myself was the Born This Way Concealer in the shade Fair. I had NO concealer so this was a must get item. I did try it the other day and it goes on very smooth. I am currently trying to figure out how to have it NOT sink into every fine line under my eyes!
This deluxe sized All Nighter setting spray was something I’ve wanted to try as well. I’ve only tried it once so far but it did make my makeup look better and hold a little longer. ( I struggle with an oily t zone and makeup is always moving around on my nose 😦 )
Since I have larger pores on my nose and areas on my cheeks, I decided to grab this deluxe sized Porefessional by Benefit. I have only tried this once so far and it works well. I actually buff it in with a fluffy brush to make sure it settles in all the places its supposed to!
I have only worn false lashes 3 or 4 times in my life! I figured now would be a good time to get more practice putting them on myself and boy do I love these!!!! They look so good on!! I just have to get used to the extra weight on my eyelids. It did make me feel a bit silly when I put them on, but they did look amazing!
One of the small things I picked up was a pencil sharpener for my kit. I don’t really use pencil eyeliner anymore, so I thought this would be a good edition as I will be stocking it with quite a few pencil liners. I also picked up a new pair of tweezers.
I had seen this on the Sephora website and thought it looked interesting. I am not really a fan of overdone eyebrows (on myself ) so, I picked this up to try it out and see what soft & natural brows looked like on me.
It comes in a cute metal tin that can really be used for anything. Inside you get a Goof proof brow pencil (full size), Ready, Set, BROW! 24 hour setting gel (mini sized), High brow highlight and lift pencil (full size), Shaping stencils, Stencil holder and a book for tips and tricks. I picked it up in shade 06 for dark brown to black and it’s a value of $59 for only $34.
Last, but not least, I picked up this mini kit for 500 VIB points.
Included was a mini shadow in shade I-544, Plexigloss in shade I-209, Rouge Mat in shade M401, Mascara, Aqua XL in shade I-24 and a mini foundation sample with 4 shades ranging from light to dark.
I’m not a big fan of lip gloss, like, at all! But, I did like the rouge mat in shade M401 and the Aqua XL liner did not want to come off at all! I had to use a few makeup remover wipes to get it completely off!
