Sephora VIB Sale Haul/Mini Reviews

25 November 2015

Acouple of weeks ago Sephora had their annual VIB sale so being a VIB Rouge member I had to take advantage of the 20% off. With the sale, I knew I wanted to try a new eyeshadow palette and some skin care products. I ended up purchasing the Kat Von D Shade + Light Eye Contour Palette, Stila Huge Extreme Lash Mascara, Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray, and Sephora Favorites Beauty Sleep.

When I got the e-mail about the VIB sale I knew right away I wanted to get a new eyeshadow palette. There was acouple different palettes I was looking at but ultimately went with the Kat Von D Shade + Light Eye Contour Palette. I've heard great things about this palette so I had high hopes for it and so far it has been living up to my expectations.  The colors are your basic neutrals so there is no disappointment there and they are matte which I always prefer.  The eyeshadow formula is buttery and soft which makes using them easy but because of that there can be fall out especially when you are putting your brush in the shadow.  That really is my only negative about this palette. It's a high recommend in my book.

Along with the Kat Von D palette I also got the Stila Huge Extreme Lash Mascara.  I picked this up because I'm in the hunt for a new mascara and was intrigued by what Stila said the mascara can do.  After trying it every day since I got it, I will say that I like the wand shape and it definitely defines your lashes. Unfortunately, by mid-day I am already wiping the "raccoon eye" away so I won't be purchasing this again.

One of the great things about the Sephora VIB Sale is they end up releasing limited edition items like this Sephora Favorite box set, Beauty Sleep.  This set includes four decent size samples of Korres Wild Rose + Vitamin C Advanced Brightening Sleeping Facial, Origins High Potency Night-A-Mins Mineral Rich Renewal Creme, Ole Henriksen Invigorating Night Treatment, and Sunday Riley Luna Sleeping Night Oil.  I love the Sephora Favorite box sets and this one is no exception. I haven't tried many of these products and I am currently looking for night treatments for my skin so I was excited to see they released this box set.

Currently, I'm using the Sunday Riley Luna Sleeping Night Oil. It's this crazy blue colored oil that has a unique scent (I believe its chamomile). It's supposed to reduce pore size, improve appearance of damaged skin and help fight wrinkles. So far I like what I see and I can definitely see a difference in the morning from the nights I do use it and the nights I don't.  My only negative about this product is the price. It's $105.00 which I can't quite bring myself to spend on one product but I understand way it's that price.

The Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray was just a re-purchase for me. I love this setting spray. It's the best in my opinion.  Sephora had a limited edition get set of two for $39.00 (if I remember right). I highly regretting not getting the two regular sizes instead of just a travel size. But c'est la vie.
