Sephora VIB 2013 Makeup Haul (excluding Totoro)
VIB Sale for Sephora only VIB Members from 11/7/2013 – 11/11/2013

All the items were purchased by me with my own money. This is not a review, just haul post where I discuss my initial thoughts.

I had been saving up for quite a few months now so that I could take advantage of the Sephora annual VIB sale (20% off everything). It’s a great time to pick high-end items that are rarely on sale and/or are Sephora exclusives. I love shopping at Sephora because they have testers in the store and a great return policy. (100% love it or leave it guarantee in store or 60 days for online purchases ~ this means that you CAN TRY it and return it if you don’t like it). I am excited to share what I picked up and feel free to let me know if you got anything from the sale. ^_^

Kat Von D Spellbinding Eye Shadow Palette (product link)
* This is line is exclusive to Sephora

I was so excited for this palette when it debuted in early this fall. The colors are absolutely beautiful in person and I find to be quite a few unique colors. The interesting thing  about this palette design is that the eye shadows are paired together specifically for a layered look.

Guerlain Crazy Pearl Illuminating Powder (product link)
* This product from Guerlain is limited edition

This was a complete impulse buy and by far the most expensive makeup item in my collection to date. I saw a on it on Temptalia and how it was a good overall face powder. It’s supposed to make your face subtly radiant. I can’t say whether or not it’s worth the splurge yet but man it’s got cute packaging and design.

Hourglass Ambient Lightening Powder Palette (product link) + mini primer
*This Hourglass product is limited edition

Everywhere I look someone is raving about the Hourglass Ambient powders. I thought the palette would be a great way to try them. The powders can be used as finishing powder and/or a highlighter depending on shade. The powder is supposed to make your skin appear to capture, diffuse and soften the way light reflects on your skin.

Dior Creme de Rose Smoothing Plumping Lip Balm (product link)

My lips are perpetual dry so I decided to venture into high-end territory  This is a thinner lip balm with a strong rose scent. If you have a favorite lip balm, feel free to recommend in the comment section below.

Too Faced La Creme Lipstick in Spice Spice Baby (product link)

This formula is amazing. It’s so smooth and moisturizing. I just love how natural this color is on my lips. It’s a my lips but better…way better. The packaging has a lovely weight to it.

Too Faced A Few of My Favorite Things Set (product link)
* This is Sephora exclusive – comes with palette (palette, mascara, lip injection and chevon pouch)

I love the holidays because so many cosmetics companies come out with stellar value sets. I swatched the eye shadows in the store and they were so rich and buttery I had to get it. It’s very compact and comes with so much product…enough for a full face of makeup. I love the pink & gold chevron design. I am really excited to play with this more!
