Last Sephora VIB Sale Haul

Sephora had its VIB sale a couple of weeks ago and I did my fair share of shopping and took advantage of the sale. I went to my first VIB Rouge Event and it was a lot of fun. But I have a few things I couldn't find in store so I made several online orders after that. I finally got all my orders and I am happy as I heard there was a bit of a chaos with their sale(website crashed on the first day, people's accounts being deactivated, products went out of stock after orders were placed, delay of shipping etc).

L'occitane Voyage En Provence Set
Anastasia Brow Wiz
Nars Audacious Lipstick
Perricone MD No Foundation Foundation Serum
Make Up For Ever Birthday Gift

I love Perricone MD No Foundation Foundation Serum and it is my new holy grail foundation. This is not sold in stores in Canada(just the skin care line) and this foundation is quite pricey so I grabbed one as a backup with the sale.

This Anastasia Brow Wiz is probably one of the most popular and raved products in the youtube and blogging world. I caved in and got this in ebony.

Let me tell you this, this brow wiz is worth every single penny and all the hype. It gives the most natural finish and with short feathery strokes, it really fills my brows nicely and the stiff spooly brush helps shapes and combs my brows.

 Nars Audacious lipstick in Anna

I swatched this lipstick a few times in store and was on the fence about it. Yes, it is so pigmented and creamy. But I don't want to dish out $37 for another lipstick. I was on the last day of sale and I wanted it all of a sudden and of course this shade was sold out. Miraculously, their sale extended for one more day and this shade, Anna, was back in stock and I HAD to get it. Just the cute packaging(square tube with magnetic closure) is worth the hype already. This has got to be the most moisturizing pigmented lipstick I own. Anna is a pretty smoky rose shade. Love it and so glad I got it.

The L'occitane set is going to be gift and I think it is an awesome set for the price.

Last but not least is my birthday gift from Make Up For Ever which consists of a lipstick and a mascara.

I have certainly splurged on makeup over the past month and a half at Sephora. With their Friends and Family Sale in mid Oct, I started hauling and now I am happy that there is no more temptations for me(oh well, Black Friday sale is only a few days away!). Glad all my orders are ok and even though they took more than 2 weeks to arrive, I saved quite a bit with the sale. 

Did you go crazy at the Sephora VIB sale?


  1. I've been wanting to try those brow products too! I need to get my hands on some. I love a good sale!

    1. a good sale gets me every time :( My justification is I can save how much $ but I didn't realize how much stuff I bought that I wouldn't have if they are not on sale.

  2. still waiting on my VIB order! URGH. but i will be placing one with black friday. that nars lipstick is gorgeous.

    1. these orders take a long time to come. Hope yours will arrive soon! I have a couple of items I want from their Black Friday sale too. Last year they were sold out so fast early. Maybe I will have to stay up for them this year :)

  3. really cool and interesting products :) I just published a new post on my blog, would you take a look?
    I really appreciate your opinion!

  4. I did hear shipping was taking a long time for some people. Luckily, I got mine in decent time and yes, I went more overboard than I thought I was going to!

    1. mine took 2 weeks but considering most Canadian orders take a week, it is not too too bad. Love a good sale and I love the thought of how much $ I saved but also if it is not the sale, I wouldn't have grabbed so much stuff I don't need haha.
