Sephora Haul - June 2014:

"Sometimes, instead of being hurt, you should look at betrayal as a gift. It makes it that much easier to sweep it up and toss it out with the rest of the trash. And why is that you ask? Because trash starts to stink.. and when it does, it has no more value in your life."

- Donna Schoenrock

Hello, my loves! I'm back! For those of you who don't follow my social media, I've been extremely sick with some sort of stomach virus since Wednesday night and am just finally now able to get up and move around a little more. I'm still not 100% but I've had this box of Sephora goodies sitting on my vanity since yesterday and I've been dying to dig in!

As with one of my previous Sephora hauls, this is another I paid NOTHING for! I built up another 10,000 swagbucks and cashed it in for a $100 Sephora gift card. Check out my previous post for more information on Swagbucks.


IMG_1777Helloooooo VIB :)

IMG_1770We'll start with the samples I picked out first!

IMG_1774I got the Porefessional Agent Zero Shine, Marc Jacobs Genius Gel foundation and concealer pen, as well as Ardency Inn's Americana Custom Coverage Concentrate and they also threw in some Sephora fragrance samples!


IMG_1785If there is anything you want a specific review on, let me know in the comments below. I have a huge list of reviews I've planned for but I can definitely do these for you guys as well.


IMG_1838The Fresh Sugar Rose lip treatment was a gift, I believe when you spent a certain amount of money. These are insanely expensive so I've never tried them but figured it would be fun to try it out (especially for free!)

IMG_1841It's a pretty generous size, I haven't tried this yet but it smells amazing.


IMG_1790I also cashed in 100 points for the Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer.


IMG_1805At 2.5g, it's a nice sample size. I never go through bronzers so I'm sure I'll have this forever. And of course, it smells delicious!


I went a little brow crazy with this order! I have always struggled finding the perfect shade for my brows, they are always way too light or too dark so I grabbed a few different brow products.

IMG_1797Benefit's Gimmie Brow is described as a brow-volumizing fiber gel.. This is supposed to have fibers that fill in any sparse areas you have and I've heard great things so I'm excited to try this out.

IMG_1800I got the shade medium/deep.

IMG_1809As always, Benefit has the cutest packaging.

IMG_1811The brush is so tiny! I can definitely see myself reusing the brush once this product is gone for a lower lash line mascara wand! :)

Benefit's Gimmie Brow is $22.


IMG_1814Following along with the brows, I got another Anastasia Brow Wiz, this time in the shade Brunette.

IMG_1815I use the shade Caramel and it's great for the inner part of my brow but too light for the arch and outer half so I'll give this a try.

IMG_1817All of Anastasia's packaging is so gorgeous!

Anastasia's Brow Wiz is $21.


IMG_1818I also wanted to try the Anastasia Brow Powder Duo, really excited about this!!

IMG_1828In the shade Dark Brown.

IMG_1822How beautiful!! Side note, and this totally shows my nerdy side but for anyone who watches Adult Swim (or used to)... Doesn't this remind you of Venture Bros?! The Monarch's symbol?! haha what a dork.

IMG_1825I love that these come with a lighter and darker shade.

Anastasia's Brow Powder Duo is $23.


IMG_1831Lastly, I got Too Faced's Shadow Insurance Glitter Glue.... Yep, I have an eyeshadow look planned using this :)

IMG_1834This is essentially a tacky base for glitters & pigments to adhere better! Can't wait to try this out.

Too Faced's Glitter Glue is $20.
