2014 Sephora VIB Sale Haul
It is the most wonderful time of the year!
The Sephora VIB 20% off sale is going on now through Monday the 10th. The sale is for VIB and VIB Rouge members only. If you happen to be one, I would definitely run to your nearest Sephora or hop online and take advantage of the 20% off! You either get a coupon in the mail or in your e-mail (I got both).
I definitely had a few things in mind when I went into the store yesterday and even though I had to rein myself in a bit, I got things that I have had my eye on for a quite a while. I may go back and pick up one or two more things, but we shall see.
1. Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush Palette
I have been wanting to try the blushes from Hourglass for a while now and when I heard that this palette was coming out, I just was checking off the days until this sale came along so I could justify spending the money on it. I am so so so glad that I was able to pick it up! The blushes are gorgeous, pigmented and so smooth. I cannot wait to play with this more. This palette is limited edition, so if you are wanting one, I would definitely go and buy one now. It has two blushes that are in their permanent collection (Luminous Flush & Mood Exposure) and one limited edition shade (Incandescent Electra).
2. Caudalie Winter Duo
I specifically wanted to pick up another tube of the Caudalie Hand and Nail Cream in the travel size for my purse and when I went over to the travel/checkout section, they had this little set. This hand cream is amazing, especially if you have terribly dry cuticles that look awful all the time like me. I had picked up a Body Shop hand cream after trying this one out and while it is nice, it just doesn't compare to how this worked wonders on my hands and cuticles. I think this will become a staple in my handbag. I like that this also came with a lip balm, because we all need a good lip balm, especially in the winter.
3. Tarte Brazilliance Skin Rejuvenating Maracuja Face and Body Self Tanner
I have had my eye on this for about 5 months now and I just couldn't ever justify spending the money on an expensive self tanner, but the stuff is just so good! This is by far one of the best self tanners I have ever used! It never goes on streaky, gives an amazing color and lasts for a decent amount of time. While I put lotion on every day, I just have gotten over the gradual self tanners that you have to put on every day or every other day. That is just way too much work. I can put this one once every week or two for a nice subtle tan, or twice a week for a deeper glow. A plus, it doesn't have that gross self tanner smell either.
4. NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer
After hearing about everyone rave about this for the past year or so, I finally caved and bought the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer! I got the shade Custard, which matches me pretty well without any self tanner on, and when I do self tan it will be a bit more highlighting. I have only used this once so far, so I can't give a true opinion, but I am liking it so far.
Those are the items I have picked up in the 2014 Sephora VIB Sale. I will definitely be doing more in depth reviews on some of the items once I have used them a bit more and formed a really good opinion on them.
Thanks for reading!
