Happy Sunday/Monday and welcome to another blog post! This past week one of my bestest friends and I went to Sephora and I thought since I haven’t done a makeup post in awhile I would show you guys what I got! Most of the stuff I needed but there are some that I didn’t expect to get, so let’s just get right into it! I bring to you my Mini Sephora Haul!
Benefit’s Roller Lash Mascara
One of the things I knew I had to grab is one of my favorite mascaras from Benefit! I had a little mini version of it but I loved it so much I needed to grab a full size! I love this mascara because it keeps my lashes curled and full all day! I’ve never been a fan of eyelash curlers so having a mascara that curls my lashes is perfect!
Benefit’s Goof Proof Brow Pencil
If you have been following my blog since the beginning you know that Benefit is my favorite high-end makeup brand. Last summer Benefit came up with a new and improved line of brow products that made people think differently about brow makeup. When the products came out I made sure to get my hands on some of them and ended up falling in love. One of the products I picked up is the Goof Proof Brow Pencil. It was my go-to brow pencil until the day I used the last of it (there were so little product the last of it fell down the drain.. I know I cried too) Because it is a little more on the expensive side (it is 24.00 at Sephora) I tried finding a new go-to brow product but nothing was the same. After almost a year of trying product after product, I finally caved in and repurchased it. I guess some things are worth the retail price and great brows are one of them.
Kat Von D’s Tattoo Liner
Speaking of all time favorite products, my favorite eyeliner of all time would have to be Kat Von D’s Tattoo Eyeliner in “Trooper Black”. It is a felt tip eyeliner that in my opinion creates the perfect cat eye easily. My eyes get watery very easily so it helps that the eyeliner is waterproof. When applying makeup, it is reassuring that my cat eye will be ready for any selfie and it won’t fade or have any cracks, and that is thanks to this eyeliner.
Urban Decay All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray
So the one thing I wanted to get at Sephora that is new to me is a setting spray. I never thought I needed to use a setting spray (why would I spray something on my face after my makeup is done?) but my best friend who came with me recommended that I get one since I was talking to her about how my makeup almost always isn’t as good as when I first put it on throughout the day. So I thought why not!
As always I always get a little overwhelmed when it comes with finding new makeup because I’m always afraid that I’m going to spend a lot of money that something I don’t like or going to use. So I made sure to look into the products before purchasing one, and there was a lot of them! The thing that drew me towards getting the All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray is that it is a weightless oil-free spray that keeps makeup from melting, cracking, fading or settling into fine lines (this is from the package…wish I could market makeup like that). If you are in the market for a new setting spray know that it can be used for all skin types as well! I’ve used it every day since I got so if you would like me to do a makeup review on it just let me know in the comments below!
These last couple items were a surprise to me when I got to the counter because I forgot since I am apart of their rewards program I got a free birthday present! There were two things I could choose from and decided on the items by Tarte.
The first item is Tarte’s Amazonian Clay 12-hour blush in “Paaarty” which the name is perfect for a birthday gift! I’ve always wanted to try the blush but didn’t want to pay the $29.00 for it (I could find a cheaper drugstore one that works the same) so I was glad that it was one of the options for the birthday gift!
The second item is Tarte’s Creamy Matte Lip Paint in “Birthday Suit” which is of course very fitting. Since I found LimeCrime I’ve been really only wearing LimeCrime lipsticks (the obsession is real guys) but I had to at least try the new lipstick since I have never tried any of the Tarteist lip paints. Mini-review I will have to say that it is long lasting but felt heavy throughout the day.
So that’s all of the items! I hope you guys enjoyed this mini Sephora haul! If you guys want me to review the new setting spray that I am trying (I already have some opinions on it after almost a week of using it daily) or any other products that you would like me to review let me know in the comments below! What kind of makeup have you been loving recently? Do you have any recommendations for products I should try next? Let me know as well as your thoughts in the comments below!
I hope you guys are all having a good start to your week and I will see you all in the next post!
