Sephora Haul

Placed a small order from Sephora. Seems like I'm getting a whole lot though since I'm redeeming my Beauty Insider points.


I have a few hundred points "burning in my pocket" for months. I want to redeem on items that I really want to try. Whenever I visit the stores, the 500 point gift just does not seem that attractive to me. So I started to "stalk" online as they have updated gifts pretty much on a weekly or bi-monthly basis.


LaVanila The Healthy Deordorant in Vanilla Grapefruit
Too Faced Beauty Editor Darlings Set
Too Faced 3-way Lash-lining Tool

Ever since I got my Too Faced Chocolate Solei bronzer, I have been very impressed by their product and decided to try more items.


The set includes: Lashgasm Mascara, Insurance Anti-crease eye shadow primer, gloss volumizing lip gloss, Insurance Smoothing Anti-Feathering Lip Primer and Primed & Poreless Skin Smoothing Face Primer

I have been using the Urban Decay Eye primer potion and am pretty happy with it. But you know, always want to branch out and try other brands. So decided on this set so I can try this and the face primer. My current face primer is the Benefit Pore-professional. 


This 3-way lash lining tool looks pretty interesting. Claims to do lash emphasizing, tight lining and eye-lining. So a 3-in-one tool.




You can flip the head the other way to have just dots. I think I will use that the most to just dot on the lower lash line to make my lashes look fuller. The staying power is pretty impressive. As I was just swatching, tried to see if it smudges and it doesn't. Need eye makeup remover to rub it off so hopefully it will stay put on my lash line as I have a bad habit of touching or rubbing my eyes.


My birthday gift, a mini-duo of the Fresh sugar lip balm


100 point gift: Lavanila Vanilla Perfume
500 point gift: Nars gift set which includes Blush in Orgasm, Velvet matte lip pencil, Pore refining primer & Smudge proof eyeshadow base

I have wanted to try the highly-raved orgasm blush for the longest time. I have accumulated so many blushes that I cannot justify in buying another high end blush. 


Mystery gift bag

They had a promo earlier. Mystery bag consists of 2 Sephora instant radiance foundation, bareMinerals eye brightener, Lancome La Base Pro, Sephora Outrageous volume mascara, Nars pure radiant tinted moisturizer & a perfume by Chloe

Quite happy with my mystery bag as it is always a joy to open up a free gift bag and see what goodies I'm getting. Most excited to try the Nars tinted moisturizer and the bareMinerals eye brightener, which hopefully can help with my dark circles underneath the eyes.

  5. Thanks for dropping by my blog! I've been using the h20 cream for about a week now since I last blogged and you're right! It's pretty great! haha.
    Ps. the NARS gift set sounds so good! I've heard so many reviews on the "orgasm" blush too - how did you like it? Any better than the other blushes out there?

    1. The orgasm blush is very nice. Very pigmented and just love the color! I only used it a couple of times since I got it. Very impressed and happy with it so far. I got the ELF duo set which consists of a blush and bronzer very similar to NARS orgasm and laguna. I will do a post on that soon to do a comparison.

    1. I am really enjoying Too Faced products. If you need a bronzer, try their Milk Chocolate/Chocolate Solei. They are absolutely amazing and smell like chocolate :)
