Sephora VIB Sale Spring 2017

This is my first time experiencing the Sephora VIB Sale and it was great and damaging. The Beauty world is hard and complex. The ideal would be to be able to purchase everything in the one place and get all the rewards, but the corporations don’t want you to be able to do that. So if you have to go Ulta, Sephora, and the individual brands’ websites to get all the goodies. It is very rarely that Sephora puts products on sale that are not from their own collection, meaning that this sale and the one during Fall must be huge selling seasons for them as any beauty lover knows, we only need a slight discount to justify all of our crazy purchases.

I did get a couple of bits, but I didn’t splurge on crazy expensive products, just products that I have been wanting for a while but didn’t want to commit and spend money on them. I also used it as an opportunity to try new things like fake eyelashes.

I think so far my absolute favorite product that I got on the sale was the Sephora Favorites Give Me Some Nude Lip (the exact one is not showing up on the website anymore). It retails for $28 and comes with five lipsticks and one lipliner. Four of the lipsticks are mini versions and then there’s one full sized product which in this case was the Urban Decay Vice Lipstick in 1993 Comfort Matte. I am a sucker for mini versions of products, and mini lipsticks are so cute. Also, most of my lipstick collection is made up of Colourpop products mainly because of how affordable they are, and this gives me a chance to try out multiple higher-end brands and formulas without committing to purchasing the full-sized product.

The other samples are, Too Faced Melted Matte Liquified Matte Long War Lipstick in Queen B (officially the longest name in existence), Marc Jacobs BeautyLe Marc Lip Crème in 246 Slow Burn, Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick in Honeycomb, Buxom Full-On Lip Cream in White Russian, and Estee Edit The Barest Contour Lip Liner in 05 In The Buff.

If you’re looking to try new lipsticks, I would highly recommend giving this a go!

In this haul, I also picked up Farsáli’s Rose Gold Elixir. This became a beauty favorite really quick and I’ve been wanting to try it for a really long time. If you haven’t heard about this before, it’s “a fast-absorbing, dry oil that can be used as an effective daily moisturizer, or in conjunction with your makeup routine.” Others also use it in their makeup, on their beauty blenders to blend out makeup, and MUAs have found endless uses for it!

The third product is Hourglass Ambient Lightning Powder in Luminous Light. This was previously mentioned in my March Makeup Wishlist and I finally get to try it!! I swatched it before at the store and it’s such a light powder, so soft, and it doesn’t feel heavy on the skin at all. I tried it out today as a no makeup-makeup look and I am loving it so far. Another powder product is the NARS Blush in Orgasm. Again, another favorite and raved about product by the Beauty community, and I had never tried it before. First, let me say the NARS packaging is amazing. Even though it’s a small product, the packaging is sturdy and just so nice.

Those were the ones I was most excited about. I also got a replacement for my absolute favorite mascara, Too Faced Better Than Sex, I compared it to others in my Battle of the Mascaras post. As I continue to write these I really want to try new things, both products, and makeup trends, which is why I picked up some eyelashes to give them a go. I’ve only worn fake eyelashes once before for a school fashion show and someone put them on for me. I went to Sephora on the last day of the sale and asked a Sales Associate to help me out and recommend natural looking lashes, glue, and anything else that might make my life easier. If you have any tips or advice for this fake eyelash virgin I would appreciate a comment below.

  • Love all your purchases! I overindulged a bit in the sale with lots of skincare products so I’m hoping they all do what they claim.

    • I thought about getting a couple of skincare but they’re so pricy and drugstore ones usually work fine. Which ones did you get?

      • I got a few things from Drunk Elephant, Luna from Suday Riley, and a few things from Boscia.

  • Oooooh, loving your picks! I’ve been loving reading everyones VIB hauls haha. You’re going to love Farsali! And I’ve been so obsessed with that nude lip set recently too. Loved reading this x

    • I know!! I’ve been loving these posts too. Everyone just went to town during the sale lol

  • With the start of a new year, I decided to set myself some realistic goals. Like traveling ✈️ But not to Australia or Japan, but keeping it local. I know I look ridiculous but it was freezing and this Colombian wasn’t made for the cold🧣I also set goals for my blog and Instagram. These are up in my blog now! Do you set yourself goals at the beginning of a new year?
••••••••••••••••••••••
Con el comienzo del nuevo año, decidí fijarme metas que fueran realistas. Cómo viajar✈️ Pero no a Australia o Japón, pero local. Se que me veo ridícula pero esta Colombiana no fue hecha para el frío 🧣 Ustedes se fijan metas al comienzo de un nuevo año?

  • Some of my favorite products together ♥️I swear @itcosmetics isn’t paying them to say nice things about them (if you want to pay me, I’ll take it), but it’s just such a nice foundation. The @milanicosmetics bronzer is great too! I have the shade Soleil ☀️but I think I need to check out their other shades as I’m quite pale right now. Do you have a bronzer for the summer and one for the winter?
•••••••••••••••••••••••
Los productos que amo todos juntos ♥️Les juro que @itcosmeticspr no me está pagando por decir cosas lindas (si me quieren pagar, se los recibo) pero la CC Cream es tan buena. Los polvos bronceadores de @milanicosmetics también son geniales! Yo los tengo en el tono Soleil ☀️pero creo que tengo que buscar otro tono que vaya mejor con piel pálida. Ustedes usas un bronzer en el verano y otro en el invierno?
