Sephora VIB Haul


Beauty-lovers, gird your loins. The annual Sephora VIB Spring Sale is here - giving you 15% off of your purchase. As stated in my Fall review discounts at Sephora are far and few so when they roll around I always take advantage. With some pricey trips and events coming up I unfortunately had to cut back on purchasing out products. However, I did pick up some of my tried-and-true favorites (and some newbie samples).


New Finds


First and foremost we need to talk about this Glamglow mask. I've heard so many great things about the GRAVITYMUD Firming Treatment from Jaclyn Hill and Faith, so when I saw it was a 100 point sample I wanted to try it out. This stuff is SO GOOD I've been holding back from purchasing (as the only downside is the $69 price tag). I found that it shrunk my pores, evened out my texture, and gave me a beautiful glow. Plus the fact that it turns bright silver on your face makes it super fun to apply!

As the warmer months roll around my love for glossy pink lips re-emerge. Next-door neighbor to the Glamglow mask was this mini Laura Mercier Lip Glace in "Bare Baby". This is such a creamy and beautiful gloss. It's not sticky and is super long lasting. The baby pink coloring layers perfectly over my Clinique Woppin' Watermelon balm (which I wear daily). 


Old Loves


Funny enough I actually purchased the Kat Von D Shade and Light contour palette in the last VIB sale. However, I ran out of the two lightest shades (Lucid and Lyric) and wanted to restock. I use these powders daily to set my under eye makeup and my T zone. The powder is so soft and creamy, which is perfect for me. Rumor is that KVD is coming out with refill pans which would be amazing! If you're like me, it would save a ton of money to only be able to fill which ones you use - considering I still haven't come close to hitting pan on the other shades.

The
Urban Decay all-nighter setting spray is another one of my favorites. I bought another one of the travel size versions, as it tends to last me for a few months. As a person who loves her makeup to stay on all day, I make sure to spritz my final look before I walk out the door. This stuff is amazing at keeping everything on my face through the DC humidity - which I can appreciate.
I also was sure to snag one of the Sephora sheet face masks. These are so great and come in several different benefits. I personally love the
Pearl mask which provides perfecting and brightening.


Did you snag anything from the Sephora sale? What is on your beauty wish list?
