November 13-16 was the Sephora VIB Sale and I took advantage. This was my first time shopping the Sephora VIB Sale and the 20% off was so exciting! I spent days curating the products I wanted to splurge on and constantly added more to my bad. In the end, I ended up with four quality products that I knew would excite me. I’ve watched my fair share of Sephora VIB Haul videos and they make mine look downright stingy. I have a hard time spending a ton of money all at once so I used the sale to purchase some things that I had been wanting for a while but I didn’t go too overboard. It was especially difficult for me to splurge too much on myself knowing that I have many Christmas gifts to purchase this year.
The Clinque All About Eyes is a product I’ve used before but recently ran out. I like it as an everyday eye cream to wear under makeup since my Kiehl’s eye cream is quite rich. Bronzer is one of my favorite makeup products and since I already had the Too Faced Bronzed and Poreless I didn’t think I would need another bronzer from Too Faced. I was watching a Kathleen Lights bronzer haul video and she mentioned how much she loves the Too Faced Soleil Matte Bronzer in Milk Chocolate so I thought I would check it out in store. Oh my, the smell is heavenly. I absolutely love how light and neutral the color is. I can contour and bronze with it and it goes on so evenly. I definitely foresee a repurchase in my future. The Nest Indigo is absolutely amazing. I’ve worn Burberry since 8th grade and still love it but sprayed myself with Nest Indigo while at Sephora a couple months back and all day kept telling Chris how good I smelled. I picked up a roller ball to truly test it out and decided to really commit and pick up a full bottle. I am horrible at describing scents but I love how warm and fruity it smells.
The star of the show might be the Burberry shadow in Pale Barley. Estée Lalonde has always raved about it and I’ve always been meaning to try it. As a lover of neutral shadows, I don’t think you can ever have too many so I don’t feel guilty at all for picking up another brownish shadow. I’ve only worn this once so far but, man, it’s gorgeous. It blends soooooo well and the color is so pigmented and beautiful. I think it’s the most perfect taupe shade and would look great on everyone. I think I might have a new shadow favorite and I can’t wait to pick up a few more colors. Oh, did I mention the packaging? The compact is magnetic. It just feels so luxurious in the hand. I can’t recommend this shadow enough.
Did anyone else pick up anything great from the VIB Sale or tried any of the products I picked up? I’m currently typing this away with the eye cream under my eyes, Burberry shadow on my lids, bronzer on my cheeks, and perfume sprayed all over. I have absolutely no regrets!
