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 wated. 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?

  • looks so nice

  • Yes yes yes yes, it’s like I’m reading my own thoughts haha. i feel the exact same about pore filling primers- and then I loved this one! It’s also one of the first where I’ve actually noticed a blurring effect. Loved reading this x

    • Nothing like reading something that resonates with you haha thank youuu 🙂

  • I am loving the toasted too! I wanted to try the no poreblem but I heard it was awful for oily skin, so I’ve held off.

    • I can’t say about oily skin, it is not as silicone-y as the Smashbox primer (photo finish?) which I’ve heard is great for oily skin so maybe that’s a sign. I’ve been using it just where I need it and using my too faced hangover everywhere else. So far so good!

  • Amanda Spencer

    I need that palette!! It’s so pretty!!

  • Thank you for the like! I just wanted to pop in and say you have a beautiful blog with awesome imagery!

    • Not a problem! Thank you for checking out my blog 🙂

  • Love your picks! I just got some Huda Beauty lashes lol

    • That’s a good thing to stock up! I am rubbish at fake eyelashes, I just think I need to find the best ones for me. Any recommendations?

      • Eyelure no 206 and 208 are really pretty from ulta. Huda Beauty Giselle, Scarlet and Sasha are nice but the bands are thick and they are extra voluminous so I keep them for special occasions!

  • I admire your self control! The tarte toasted palette looks so nice and it’s even better when it’s easy to use! I’m not the greatest at makeup either so that’s always appreciated! The Touch in Sol primer sounds awesome! I’ll have to try it next!

    • It was hard haha but anything to save a few bucks.

  • I love tarte eyeshadows and this palette looks really pretty ! there is a little bit of kick up as you said but the quality of the shadows is absolutely amazing!

    • I am so happy I got it. The kick up doesn’t really bother me that much, because there isn’t much/any fallout so I just dip my brush very softly. Thank you for reading!

  • Everyone talks about eyebrows being sisters not twins... I feel the same way about eyelashes. Loved trying out the @marcbeauty Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara. It's easy for this one to get on the clumpy side, but I think wiping the excess off really helps. What are your favorite mascara tricks to make them look more even?

  • Happy Wednesday!! Went foundation-less for this and forgot how much I like it! Before getting into makeup I would only do concealer and powder. After I got into makeup I started feeling like I HAD to wear some sort of base. You don't HAVE to do anything and you'll look gorgeous as long as you're feeling comfortable with yourself
💪🏼
••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
Aquí me salte la base. Antes de que me obsesionada con el maquillaje solo usaba corrector y polvos. Luego empece a sentir que TENÍA que usar algún tipo de base. La verdad es que no TIENES que hacer nada. Te verás hermosa con tal de que te estás sintiendo cómoda!
