Cumulative Sephora Haul 2015

Cover Pic

For about half the year, I’ve been meaning to do this haul but kept putting it off. Now I’m finally doing it. So just be warned: I have a lot of stuff that I purchased from Sephora. I did not purchase this all at once. This is a very cumulative haul.

Anyways, I’m just gonna get into it and hope you guys enjoy. Please let me know if you are interested in a review for specific items.

clinique lip pop and cheek pop
swatches clinique

Clinique came out with their lip and cheek pop a while ago and I’ve been dying to try them. I finally picked some up over the summer. They are worth definitely worth the hype. Wow pop is a beautiful color specially over the summer but I would still wear it since it’s still been sunny. The lip pop is very creamy and pigmented. But it grips my lip nicely and stays on all day. Fig Pop looks coral on the swatch but it actually has some red-pink tones to it. I haven’t tried it yet but I’m sure it’s still going to look great even after summer. The red-pink tones make it wearable for all seasons. Pansy Pop is more of a lavender color even though it looks pink in the swatch. This would look amazing on people that have fair skin tones but it can still look great on people with darker skin tones but it’ll take a while to build it up on the cheeks. It actually looks better now that it’s fall on my skin tones because I pair it with either a dark red, berry or purple lip color and it gives me such a beautiful fall look.

I got Sephora’s newest blush collection in Love at First Sight. Despite what it appears on the picture, this blush is pink with peach undertones. It’s basically an everyday easy to wear blush color for me. I just wanted to try it out after hearing great thing about it. I’m glad I did because it’s a great blush for a reasonable price tag. It’s pigmented, blendable, and light-weight. I also the Laura Mercier Matte Radiance Baked Powder in Highlight. I find it weird that a highlight can be Matte but I wore this and it actually does kind of look matte. It’s really weird especially when I wear matte foundation with it. It’s a beautiful highlight that makes me look like I have a glow or the light is just hitting my face but I still look matte. Does any of this make sense?

lip sticks

I didn’t swatch these because I am planning to do something big about lip products. So I will have swatches for these soon, so watch out for a big announcement about lip products. But I will still name these (from left to right) Marc Jacobs Long Wear Lip Pencil in Primrose, Kat Von D Liquid Lipstick in Bow n Arrow, Kat Von D Liquid Lipstick in Beloved

born this way tf foundation

I just recently got this. I’ve been wanting it since it first came out but I wanted to finish some of my foundations first. So now I finally have it! This is the Too Faced Born This Way Foundation and I am in the color Sand. I’m not gonna say much about it. I plan to do a review in the future. I’m just gonna leave it at the fact that I like it.

I saved the best for last! This is the Anastasia Beverly Hills World Traveler Palette! I’ve been seeing so many beautiful and edgy looks with this that I had to have it myself and make my own edgy and fun looks. What I love the most about it is that you can still create neutral everyday looks but also make crazy, bold, fun looks or have a pop of color and still keep it neutral. Definitely excited to play around with this more.

Alright, you guys made it! I hope you enjoyed my haul! Let me know if you want more info on anything I just hauled.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Until next time!

As Always,

Date Night Look #1
Hello everyone! I’m celebrating my 2 year anniversary with my boyfriend today. He likes the natural look on me but I added a vampy red lip to go the night time mood. Below are the list of products I used and where I applied them! Enjoy!
Face:
  1. Make Up For Ever HD Invisible Coverage Foundation in 127
  2. NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in Honey
  3. Mac Powder Blush in Melba
  4. Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit: I use Banana to set my under eye concealer, Fawn to contour, Java to bronze, Sand to highlight and Vanilla as an all over powder to set my makeup.
  5. Urban Decay De-Slick Oil-Control Makeup Setting Spray: I use this to make my makeup stay on longer. I forgot to put this in the picture above. Sorry! >.<

Eyes

  1. Lorac Pro Palette: I used Lt. Bronze on my lid, Garnet on my crease, Cream as my highlight color and Taupe as my transition color.
  2. Stila Stay All Day Liquid Liner in Jet Black: I used this for my top lash line.
  3. Make Up For Ever Aqua Eyes in Matte Black: I used this for my bottom lash line.
  4. Ardell Natural Lash Black in Demi 120

Lips

  1. Bite Beauty Line & Define Lip Primer: I used this before I put on any lip products. *Tip* Apply first before any makeup including foundation. Then continue doing makeup like usual with foundation, eye shadow, etc. By the time you get to applying your lipstick or lip products, the lip primer will be fully set onto your lips and your lip products will apply smoothly and more vibrant.
  2. Colour Pop Lip Pencil in LBB: I lined my lips with this.
  3. Colour Pop Lippie Stix in Tutu: I used this all over my lips.
