Sephora Haul + First Impression

I recently made a Sephora order which resulted in me becoming VIB (which I’m pretty pumped about), although my bank account isn’t as pumped. Anyways…I’ve had these products for a few months and have finally gathered my opinion on them so here we go!

Kat Von D Shade + Light Face Contour Refillable Palette ($64.00 CAD)

I love this contour pallet, although I wish there was a highlighter in it. I love that all the shades are very blendable and able to give a flawlessly chiseled look. One thing I have noticed about this pallet though is you only need a little bit of product, trust me it goes a long way!

Kat Von D Shade + Light Eye Contour Palette  ($62.00 CAD)

I love the idea of having a contour palette for my eyes (is that weird? Like I know you can just use regular shadows to achieve it but I just love that I own an eye contour palette) anyways…I love the pigmentation of these shades! I am able to do very versatile looks with the different shades but again a little goes a long way!

Tarte Tartelette in Bloom Clay Eyeshadow Palette ($60.00 CAD)

Can we just take a second to appreciate how f*cking gorgeous this palette is?! Honestly, I bought it because I wanted to try a Tarte palette and I liked the colour scheme of this one and oh my god I’m so happy I did! I love this palette and it’s quickly become one of my most used palettes! The colours are pigmented and very blendable, def a favourite!

Too Faced The Chocolate Bar Eye Palette ($59.00 CAD)

I was fighting with myself over if I wanted the Chocolate Bar palette or if I wanted the Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar palette but I ended up going for the original (obviously) and honestly…I’m so happy I did. I own a lot of neutral palettes but I still find myself reaching for this one over a lot of my other one!

Too Faced Sweet Peach Glow Peach-Infused Highlighting Palette ($52.00 CAD)

I was so excited about this product and unfortunately, I’m a little disappointed. I only use the one on the far left because I find it’s the only one that gives me a beautiful highlight however the blush shade isn’t bad, it’s just not my favourite (but at least it smells good!).

SEPHORA Collection Cream Lip Stain in 13 Marvelous Mauve ($18.00 CAD)

I love this lip product, the only thing I will say is (since it’s a stain) it tries darker than the product in the bottle and it stays a little tacky so you can feel in on your lips but it’s such a nice product that I still find myself reaching for it. It is dry but not as drying as the Colourpop Matte Liquid Lipsticks which I find very drying!

It’s been a while since I’ve posted a favourites post but that’s because I haven’t had many favourites that were new between the months of June and August. However, September has seen a few new favourites that I’m excited to share with you! So without further ado, let’s get to it!

Sephora Haul + First Impressions

Recently I made my first Sephora order (crazy I know) and I have already fallen in love with every product I’ve ordered!

Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks in Lolita and Bow N Arrow ($24.00 CAD)

I have raved about these liquid lipsticks before so it’s no surprise that they found their way into my basket. I feel like you can’t own one of Kat Von D’s Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks without owning Lolita so after very little debate with myself I added it to my basket and quickly feel in love with Bow N Arrow which also found itself in my basket before I even had time to think. I won’t go into a lot of detail about these because I’ve already talked about them in depth in this post but I can assure you that trying one of these is something you will not regret! I am a big fan of Kat Von D Beauty, especially since they are cruelty-free and never test on animals!

Too Faced Melted Matte Liquified Long Wear Matte Lipstick in Queen B ($25.00 CAD)

I’ve wanted to try the Melted Lipsticks from Too Faced for a while so I decided to add one to my basket. My first impression of this product is that it’s a long wear liquid lipstick that is very pigmented however I found it left a sticky residue on my lips. It felt more like a gloss than a lipstick which threw me off a bit. However, the amount of compliments I got on the colour (plus how much I loved the colour myself) made it worth the price to me even though I’m still unsure whether or not I’ll be repurchasing this product in the future.

Edit: I wore this lipstick for a night out and to work and my entire view on this product has changed, I will certainly be purchasing again! There is very little transfer and the colour stay pigmented, even with eating and drinking!

Too Faced Love Flush Long-Lasting 16-Hour Blush in Your Love Is King ($32.00 CAD)

I honestly couldn’t believe I spent $32 on a blush but once I saw this blush in action, I realised I would have paid a lot more!I actually bought the wrong one, I meant to buy How Deep Is Your Love however I’m not even mad that I accidently ordering Your Love Is King  love this blush! The colour is perfect, it has amazing pigmentation and is easy to blend.

I also received 3 samples that I can’t wait to try!

Urban Decay NAKED ILLUMINATED Shimmering Powder for Face and Body in Aura ($35.00 CAD)

I didn’t order this from Sephora but was given it from a friend who felt the product just wasn’t for him. Originally I didn’t even pay much attention to the product itself, I focused more on the fact that I was getting an Urban Decay product (that I’ve wanted to try) for free! Now the actual product is full of shimmer which is to be expected from a shimmering powder and I won’t lie, I’m kind of in love with this! It’s perfect for that hint of shimmer for a night out!
