Sephora Haul:

"Give. Even when you know you can get nothing back."

- Yasmin Mogahed

Hello gorgeous! I have a Sephora haul for you guys today (and one item from Ulta).. I earned enough Swagbucks again for a $50 gift card and was super close to hitting VIB Rogue so I figured, why the hell not!

sephora & ulta haul 1I went a little lippie crazy! There was a ton of products I wanted but I narrowed it down to some I've been wanting the most and I'm really happy with all my choices!

I'm not going to be doing swatches in this so if you want a review on any of these products, let me know in the comments below and I would love to!

Ulta first,

ulta lorac pro 2 1When the Lorac Pro 2 first came out, I had no desire to get it... I have, and love, the first but I sort of wasn't in a palette-buying mood at the time this was released and just passed on it.. But I randomly started really wanting it so I grabbed this during a random Ulta trip.

ulta lorac pro 2 2The Pro 1 is a warm toned palette and the Pro 2 is cool toned! The shades are stunning and the same format as the first, top row is matte and bottom row, shimmers/metallics.

Okay, Sephora!

sephora vib rogue 1Finally Rogue!

sephora vib rogue 2The little kit they send you is super cute! You get a little booklet explaining the perks of being a VIB Rogue and also talks a bit about Bite Beauty and the mini-exclusive lipstick that comes with it.

sephora vib rogue 3You also get a card that you can show if you go into Sephora for a makeover!

sephora vib rogue 4You get a super tiny, but gorgeous, classic red lipstick.

If you aren't familiar with shopping online, always check Retail Me Not for coupon codes! Sephora always has fantastic ones and around the time I was on the site, they had literally at least 10 coupon codes to choose from!

sephora haul tarte oil sampleI got a free sample of the Tarte Maracuja Oil! This is such a generous size and I'm super excited to try this out. And the packaging is stunning!

sephora haul - chocolate bar palette 1Another paIette I really had no desire in getting when it first came out... The Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette! No clue why now, when I look at this because it is so ME! A neutral palette with little pops of color, I cannot wait to play with this!

sephora haul - chocolate bar palette 2 Yes, it does indeed smell deliciously like chocolate. Like you haven't heard that enough? lol

sephora haul - chocolate bar palette 3The shade names are on a plastic slip in the palette, I wish they were printed on the packaging like the Semi-Sweet palette but that's okay. The top cover has a bit of a ledge so I just place the slip up where the mirror is and it never falls out while it's open.

-

sephora haul anastasia dip brow 1I picked up another shade of Anastasia's Dip Brow. I have the... Brunette shade, I believe and wanted one a bit lighter so I got it in Soft Brown.

sephora haul anastasia dip brow 2Not sure how this one will work for me but it's worth a try! I love the dip brow formula!

-

sephora haul buxom lip foundation 1Buxom's True Nude Lip Foundation in the shade Au Naturel (described as a cinnamon pink)... A very interesting product. There are 7 shades, ranging from a colorless down to a deep rich brown.

The description on Sephora's site:

"A lip-toned perfector that defines, smooths, and covers.

What it does: These creamy, long-lasting colors perfectly match your lip tone for a scandalously sexy nude look. They feature a precision lip-defining tip and can be worn alone or under gloss or color to cover minor imperfections and bring out your most luscious lips."

I was intrigued by this and had heard mixed reviews so I really wanted to test this out and see what I thought of it.

sephora haul buxom lip foundation 2It's a twist up pencil, I absolutely love the size of product and it's so easy to apply and get crisp, clean edges.

I'm going to test this out more but so far? I'm enjoying it! I disagree with a lot of the negative comments I've heard so I may pick up another shade or two... After I make sure I love it :)

-

sephora haul kat von d lolitaThe oh-so-controversial Lolita... Yep, another shade of the Kat Von D Liquid Lipsticks.... I just can't help myself!

This shade used to be a beautiful mauve-rose pink type shade but it has recently been reformulated to a more... Grey-ish toned shade. It's so hard to describe and I'll have to wear it before I can totally speak on this but in the tube, it looks like a more wearable version of Lime Crime's Cashmere.

-

sephora haul nars annaAnother NARS Audacious lipstick.... I know... These are so effing expensive but I just couldn't help myself!

Anna is described as a smokey rose and I'd have to agree! It's probably one of the most talked about shades in the line and it is so stunning!

-

sephora haul too faced melted berryLast, but not least.. Too Faced's Melted Liquid Lipstick in Melted Berry.

I've been eyeing this shade for months. I love the Melted formula and I absolutely love the deeper berry shades so I'm super excited to try this! It looks so beautiful!
