Sephora Haul

Okay, so today was totally awesome. I mentioned in an earlier post that I was going to the mall with my friend Kate, but I didn't have time to mention that our friend Shannon also decided to go on the shopping spree. And we ended up with some cool stuff!!! But we'll get into that in a moment..
I also had to attend a memorial service for a dear friend and former room mate who died a few days ago. I was only there for a short while as I had to come home early to pick up my daughter, but it was wonderful to see how many people he touched in his life. They couldn't even fit all the attendees into the venue. It was really moving.
But back to my shopping experience.. We hit up the Sephora in our local mall and I burned through my little gift card. And I think I found my dream foundation!!! I've only done swatches and need to do a more in depth review of the product, but I think this one's a winner. Yay! But I'm blathering on.. How bout some photos?
NARS Sheer Glow Foundation in Mont Blanc $44 USD
I was going to show a picture of the foundation blended in, but it's barely visible. It matches my skin tone that well. And the coverage is sheer, which is perfect for me as I have quite nice, albeit a little dry, skin.
Make Up For Ever Red Lip Set $28 USD
This 3 piece kit comes with a full size red lip pencil and lip gloss, and then you get to pick the lipstick to go with it. A red lipstick seems like the obvious way to go, but being that I already have some red lipsticks I decided to go for something totally different. And just so ya know, this is an amazing deal. The lip gloss on its own costs $18 USD, the lip pencil alone is $18 USD, and the lipstick alone is $19 USD. So if you were to buy all these products separately, it would cost you $55 USD. So $28 for the kit is AMAZING.
Make Up For Ever Aqua Lip Waterproof Lip Liner Pencil in 8C
Make Up For Ever Rouge Artist Intense in 15
Make Up For Ever Lab Shine Lip Gloss Star Collection in S8

Tokidoki Eyeshadow in Soya $5USD
Swatched on bare skin, no primer
I lucked out with the Tokidoki eyeshadow as it's on super clearance because the line is being discontinued. So if you like this shadow (I'll have a full review up soon!) I would recommend you scoop this up quickly.
Sephora Long Lasting 12 HR Wear Eye Liner in Glitter Black $12 USD
I kinda goofed up with the eye liner.. I was almost out of my Sephora black liquid eye liner so I figured I'd pick some up on my trek to the mall today. But I wasn't paying attention and grabbed what appeared to be my liner, but instead of being black it turned out to be glitter black. The glitter isn't too obvious, so it'll work for now. And it really is quite lovely, don't get me wrong, I just don't want all of my looks requiring liner to be sparkly. So I'm going to pop on down to the drugstore in the next few days to pick up a regular black liner. Oops.. Though I'm sure it will be a happy mistake. :)
I'm super thrilled with my new purchases and can't wait to really get to play with them. I will have full reviews up soon of all these products, though I have a feeling that I'm going to love them all.
Also, Kate and Shannon were a huge help to me when I was looking for products (specifically the foundation) and it would make me so happy if you checked out their blogs. They have lovely reviews on TONS of products, and they're super in depth. They both plan on doing haul posts, and I will have the links up as soon as they get them to me, so expect updates on this one. :)

  1. Wow, what a haul! I want the MUFE lip kit - that purple lippy is brilliant. And don't Tokodoki package their products really well? I love their eyeliners. Keep relaxing - you need it and deserve it xx

    1. Thanks, I definitely could use some chill time. And the MUFE kit is awesome! I think they had 2 other kits, berry and maybe nude.. I can't remember, I saw the red and was like yup, that's for me. And I love that you can pick whatever color lipstick you want to go in the kit.
      And the Tokidoki packaging is so cute! I don't have any of their liners, hopefully I can scoop some up before the line is discontinued.
      Thanks for the lovely comment, you're always so sweet. :)


  2. Great buys! I am definetly intrigued to try the Sephora eyeliner with the subtle glitter, I'm sure it will add a little something to any nighttime makeup.


    1. The glitter is quite subtle, I'll have a full review of it up soon. But I do have this liner in regular black and it works really well, so I'm sure this one will be nice too.


  3. Great haul! I'm a big fan of M.U.F.E. cosmetics so it's great to read any review about their products ;)

    1. This is actually my first real experience with MUFE products. I've had some samples before, but I've never had full sized products. And so far I am very happy with their products. Review will be up soon. :)
      Have a lovely day!

  4. Great blog! Nice haul!
