The Sephora VIB Sale – What I Picked Up

Hello again!! Welcome back to my blog where I share my thoughts on everything makeup. If you’re new, I try to post twice a week. If you missed my last post, I reviewed the new Gigi x Maybelline collection and you can read it here. On today’s blog post I will be sharing with you what I picked up during the Sephora VIB sale.

If you don’t live in the U.S. (and some limited few countries where Sephora is also available), Sephora is the Disney World of makeup and they very rarely have sales. Recently they’ve been doing weekly wows, but that’s only for a few products at a time. They have two sales during the year, one around March-April I think for 15% off and one in the Fall for 20% off, and people go CRAZY. This year, I decided to only get two things I was dying to try out.

Tarte Cosmetics Tartelette Toasted Palette

The first product I picked up was the beautiful Tarte Cosmetics Tartelette Toasted eyeshadow palette. I had been dying to get this palette ever since it was announced. I waited until it was available at Sephora and then found out about the sale so I waited. It is now available at Sephora and Ulta if you want to check it out! This palette is full of warm shades, seven mattes and five shimmers, all ready to create beautiful looks in your eyes. I’m not sure if this is all Tarte palettes, but the two I own smell like chocolate and it’s delicious.

I’ve already used the palette and I am in love. It is definitely my new favorite palette and it is so easy to use. I am no pro at makeup, even though I extremely enjoy it, so I appreciate makeup that’s easy to use. These eyeshadows are blendable, pigmented, and although there is a little bit of kick up in the palette, if you go in with a gentle hand, it will all be fine. It is very similar to the Naked Heat palette, but if you watched KathleenLights comparison, the Toasted palette is a lot more wearable if you’re interested in every-day looks.

Touch in Sol No Poreblem Primer

The second product I picked up during the VIB sale was the Touch In Sol No Poreblem Primer. I haven’t had a lot of luck in pore-filling primers. They’re usually silicone-based and they just make my skin feel and look funky. This primer, even though it has silicone, it feels a little bit hydrating when I first put it on my skin. I don’t use it all over, but I focus it on my nose/cheeks area where my pores are more noticeable. I then go in with my Too Faced Hangover Replenishing Face Primer all over my face. The key is to really allow time in between primers and even in between your moisturizer and your primer.

So far I’ve been loving these two products, and I am happy I didn’t get anything just because it was cheaper. These were really the only two things I had been considering getting, and so far, they’ve treated me well! Don’t forget that returning items to Sephora is really simple, so if there’s ever anything that just didn’t work for you, return it!

Did you pick up anything during the Sephora VIB sale?

  • New #dermae goodies! And #texturetuesday if you swipe left ⬅️ I have been loving trying out new skincare, especially moisturizers and anything hydrating. I got sent two @dermae products, both with anti-aging qualities. How do you feel about anti-aging skincare?
🍃 The Advanced Peptide and Collagen Moisturizer helps soften and smooth the appearance of wrinkles. Also, includes antioxidants to help support healthy collagen. Even if you are young and don’t have visible wrinkles, it is super important to be preventive! I haven’t used this one yet, but it felt really nice on my hand and I can’t wait to use it.
🍃Also received the Firming DMAE Eye aloft. This cream lifts, firms, and tightens the delicate eye area. It has #hyaluronicacid which infuses a surge of cooling eye moisture. I have used this a couple of times and really like the way it feels. While it isn’t super heavy, it does feel really hydrating.
Thank you so much #dermaesocial 🙏🏼

Productos nuevos para probar de @dermae! Su hidratante que ayuda a suavizar y disminuir la apariencia de arrugas. Nunca es muy temprano para empezar a prevenir. Y el segundo producto es su crema para la ojos que hidrata, afirma, y levanta la delicada área de los ojos. El #contornodeojos ya lo he usado un par de veces y me ha gustado mucho lo hidrata que hace ver las ojeras.
  • It’s a new week and I am still dealing with my cold 🤦🏻‍♀️Maybe I’ll be cured before the end of the year 🤞🏼What is one thing makeup/skincare related that you struggle with? Something you can’t make look right. For example, for me it is concealer. I have tried so many different things (still testing some), but this is the one area of my face that looks the worst at end of the day. I also feel like it’s a very important one as I want to make sure I get those under eye circles covered, but don’t want it to look cakey. Let’s help each other out! Give me your concealer tips and I’ll try to help you! 👇🏼

Una nueva semana y yo todavía con gripa 🤦🏻‍♀️A lo mejor para el fin de año ya estoy mejor 🤞🏼Cuál es un paso en su rutina de maquillaje/cuidado de la piel con la que tienen dificultades? Que no logran que se vea bien? Por ejemplo, para mi es el corrector para tapar las ojeras. Siempre me parece que es lo peor que se ve al final del día. Quiero asegurarme de que estoy tapando las ojeras pero no quiero que el area se vea pesada. Denme sus tips y ayudémonos! 👇🏼

  • Happy #Sunday! A little #throwback to the end of the summer when I had a fresh tan (that has now faded) and was playing with the @hourglasscosmetics #scatteredlight shadow in Smoke. Only used some bronzer and the #hourglass shadow to add a little something. Love how easy these were to use. I had no trouble with fallout throughout the day or longevity.
•
I hope you all had a very relaxing weekend ♥️

Feliz Domingo! Esto fue al final del verano cuando todavía estaba bronceadita y estrenaba la sombra de @hourglasscosmetics en el tono Smoke. Son súper fáciles de usar! Yo no tuve ningún problema durante el día, al final se veía igual que apenas la apliqué.
•
Espero todos hayan tenido un buen fin de semana ♥️
  • Happy Friday! I hope you’re on your way to a lovely, relaxing weekend. Any plans? I will be doing homework and playing with some makeup. These are all products I have been using for a while now and love. Still obsessed with the @thrivecausemetics eyeshadow palette. The quality is amazing and you really don’t need anything more. Can’t go wrong with the @marcbeauty bronzer. It has to be one of my all-time favorites. @maybelline has some of the BEST mascaras and the @beccacosmetics highlighters are the most beautiful.
•
Feliz Viernes! Espero se estén preparando para un fin de semana súper relajado. Estos son todos productos que he usado ya un tiempo y todos me encantan. Les súper recomiendo las sombras de #thrivecausemetics. La verdad que no se necesita más. Los polvos bronceadores de #marcbeauty son de los mejores que he usado.
  • #SaturdaySkinGiftedMe What’s the last skincare you tried? A little skincare, a little newness. The @farmacybeauty Green Clean is my favorite way to take off my makeup. I then use the @freshbeauty Soy Face Cleanser.  their Peel Gel - and I really liked how gentle it was. My skin was not red afterwards and it is just a very satisfying feeling. I would only do this maybe once every couple of weeks but it is a nice complement to my routine.
•
NEW - the @fur_you Silk Scrub (gifted). This is a gentle exfoliant to be used 2-3 times a week on your body. It can also be used as a mask, but I see myself using it after I shave. I’ve only tried it on my hand so far and I was very impressed by how gentle it was. It didn’t feel scratchy. And I LOVE the packaging. It is so practical and hygienic.
•
Productos para la piel! Para quitarme el maquillaje uso #GreenClean de @farmacybeauty seguido por el #soyfacecleanser de #freshbeauty. Una nueva adición es el exfoliante de #furyou para el cuerpo. Ya lea contaré qué tal!

  • Sharing an #motd today! If you’re not familiar with @colourpopcosmetics, they have amazing quality eyeshadows and so many eyeshadow palettes to choose from. They also always have sales going on and just amazing quality. Other great #drugstorebeauty products include the @physiciansformula #butterbronzer and #butterhighlighter. The bronzer is so good and they released new shades this year. The @lorealmakeup lumi glotion is amazing if you like the glowy makeup look. It is a dupe for the #charlottetilbury Hollywood flawless filter.

What are your favorite drugstore makeup products?

Si no han escuchado de #colourpopcosmetics, esta marca es súper económica pero la calidad es súper buena y vale la pena. Además tienen una gran seleccion de productos. Otros productos de farmacia que son súper buenos, los polvos bronceadores de #physiciansformula.
