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?

  • I don’t think there has ever been a brand I obsessed over as much as I have for @lilahbeauty 😍 This is the most beautiful packaging and presentation I had ever seen. It is a pricey brand, but when you receive the box, open it, and see the little pebble, every penny is worth it. I picked up the Divine Duo Lip & Cheek in b.true, the prettiest #mauve and I am so glad I did. I am still trying it out but there’s no doubt the formula is just as beautiful as the packaging.
•
What’s one brand you’ve been dreaming about trying for a while?
•
No creo que haya otra marca más linda que #lilahbeauty 😍 La presentación y el empaque del producto es hermoso, y hace que todo valga la pena. Esta vez compre el dúo para mejillas y labios, sirve como rubor y labial, en el tono b.true. Aún sigo ensayándolo pero no hay duda de que la fórmula del producto es igual de perfecta que el empaque.
•
Cuál es una marca que han querido probar?

  • @thrivecausemetics is killing it with these amazing releases and I am so happy to be a part of it. This is the NEW Focus Eyeshadow Palette No. 3. The perfect beginner palette in my opinion and the perfect palette for an everyday look. I love how it has everything you need and these are literally the shades I reach for in every palette I own. Can’t wait to start playing with it and letting y’all know my thoughts. Thank you again to #thrivecausemetics and @karissabodnar ♥️

Did you know #Thrive donates one product for every product sold? Have you tried this brand yet?
•
La nueva #paletadesombras de @thrivecausemetics está AQUÍ! Y es perfecta para el día a día. Tiene los tonos perfectos para crear una variedad de looks - estos son los tonos que uso en todas las paletas que tengo y me hace feliz tenerlos todos juntos en una paletita. Si no han escuchado de esta marca, se las recomiendo! Tiene un mensaje y una misión muy linda.
  • Are you lazy? Do you forget everything? Do you only shave exposed leg during the winter? Then you’re just like me and need to check out @sphynx - an all-in-one portable, TSA friendly razor. It comes with a spray, a shave bar, and two razors. They’re all refillable which was my main concern when I received it, but it is so effective. I am not sure if I’d find it practical for a full shave, just because it is really bulky, but if it’s the winter and you missed a spot of exposed leg, this is such a good solution! Thank you to the @yccagency for the opportunity to test it out ♥️

Les mata la pereza? Se les olvida todo? Solo se rasuran lo que queda expuesto de la pierna durante el invierno? Entonces son como yo! Tuve la oportunidad de probar #sphynx que es un todo en uno. Viene con un spray, un bálsamo para afeitarse, y dos cuchillas - todo lo que necesitan para afeitarse cuando están de afán o se les ha olvidado. Ademas lo pueden traer con ustedes en el avión ✈️. No se si lo usaría para una rasurada completa por lo que el empaque es tan grande, pero una gran opción para cuando se les olvida algo!
  • [#flowerbeautygiftedme #soldejaneirogiftedme] New products I am trying and testing - See any favorites?
-> the new @thrivecausemetics Focus Eyeshadow Palette No. 3 is quickly becoming a favorite but I’ve yet to use all the shades.
-> @flowerbeauty Blush Bomb Color Drops in Cinammon. This could be a dupe of the @glossier cloud paints. I really like this shade but I am still making up my mind
-> @soldejaneiro Açaí Body Cream. I’ve already said I really like this. I just noticed it does have a shimmer to it, which I hadn’t noticed before. I don’t mind, but wanted to mention it
-> @lilahbeauty Divine Duo Lip & Cheek in b.true. FINALLY getting to try some #lilahb - the brand with the prettiest packaging
-> @dailyconcepts Jade Roller was so kindly sent to me and I have no idea about the benefits but it feels really nice
•
Productos nuevos que he estado ensayando! Las nuevas sombras de #thrivecausemetics hasta ahora me han encantando. Se ven súper lindas y son fáciles de usar. La crema para el cuerpo de #soldejaneiro como ya les había mencionado me gusta mucho, pero me he dado cuenta que me da a la piel como un brillito entonces lo quería mencionar. Otros que todavía estoy viendo qué tal me parecen! Ven algún favorito?

  • Two new products to try from @dermae and I am so excited! One - the Anti-Wrinkle cleanser which smells amazing. I’ve used it already and so far I really like it. And the Sun Defense Oil-Free Sunscreen. I don’t think it is the type of product I’d use under makeup, but it feels really nice and doesn’t have a strong SPF scent which is usually the case. Have you tried either of these? Thank you to @dermae for gifting these to me!
•
Dos productos para ensayar de #dermae! Uno es un limpiador fácil que ayuda a prevenir arrugas. Huele súper rico y hasta ahora me ha gustado mucho. El segundo producto es un protector solar. No se qué tal se vea debajo de maquillaje, pero me gusta mucho la textura y que además no tiene un olor muy fuerte a protector. Han usado alguno de estos?
