Sephora VIB Haul 2014

Sephora VIB Haul 2014

Beauty hauls, Videos
Earlier this month was my favorite makeup holiday of the year: Sephora's annual 20% off VIB sale. I take this shopping trip very seriously. I went armed with multiple lists and a friend. And when a few things I wanted weren't in stock, I went online and ordered more the next morning. However, you've probably noticed that this post is going up pretty late, considering how it's been about three weeks since the sale. I didn't actually get my package until a week and a half after I placed my order because Sephora was backed up, but they were really great about the delay and gave me 250 points. After that, I went through two attempts to film the haul and had to edit the video on top of finishing my first…

Hi, everyone! I got some things I've been lusting after (and then some) for my birthday, and I thought I'd share it with you guys. But I feel the need to start off with a warning: I went a little crazy. I never shop like this and probably won't buy too much more for a long time, so be prepared for a long post...

On the lips, though, the pink tones of Rose in Tension really stand out against the red tones in Fervor. Fervor also seems to have a shimmer to it. So, they're not dupes, but they're definitely in the same family!

YSL Rouge Volupte Shine Lipstick in #5

Lips, Product reviews
I was at Sephora recently and decided to finally splurge on a YSL lipstick. I was a bit nervous because I've heard that once you try one, you're hooked, and I can't get addicted to a product that's $34 a pop. But I had a gift card, so that makes it OK, right? I'll first state the obvious: the packaging is gorgeous. Everyone's seen it. Everyone's talked about it. But seriously, look at it. Let's move on. I saw that there was a new-ish line out (Rouge Volupte Shine rather than Rouge Volupte Silky Sensual Radiant), so I decided to check that out. I decided on #5 "Fuchsia in Excess," a beautiful bright cool-toned pink, and apparently it's a Sephora exclusive. I like to think of the color as the…
