sephora vib haul

There's (was) three FIVE lipsticks in my haul, which is something very new to me. I used to hate how lipsticks looked on me because of my lip shape. The outer edges of my lips kind of meet at a curve instead of a point, making lipsticks look clownish on me. But that's ok - if I take my time with lipstick application, it doesn't actually look that bad! It's probably a bad move to buy higher end lipsticks, but oh well - might as well go all out, haha.

I returned two items and bought some other stuff with it, though it was after the sale - I'll probably get around to the mini haul/reasons for returning stuff in another post, cause I don't want this one to be tooooo long.

Did you guys get anything from the sale? Leave me a link to your post if you have one, I'd love to see what you got!


  1. So these are the products that were
    in the boxes I saw at your Instagram!
    Lol wowie! I always tend to buy
    a bit more when there's sale going
    on :P Xx http://icepandora.blogspot.com

  2. Ahhhh you got some nice stuff!!!! I've been wanting that electric palette so bad lol!! And it's ok you got so many lipsticks, I did that once and they were all the same shade lol >.<

  3. Ooh lots of lovely purchases! The Too Faced melted lipstick looks like a lovely colour, been hearing a lot of good things about them! xo

  4. Ooo how do you like the nars concealer?! I'm on the hunt for a concealer that'll make me look dewy, and I can't seem to find one with excellent coverage. They all come out kinda watery and don't really do much to hide the circles around my eyes, let alone even out my skin tone. I'd love any suggestions :)

  5. Oh my gosh this is such an amazing haul! I basically want everything. Maybe when I win the lottery ;)

  6. fun and awesome haul! love what you got!!

  7. Hahaha same here, I think of it as it'll last me a while so it's the same as buying it later anyway :P

  8. I can't wait to experiment with that palette! I don't seem to have enough time in the morning, haha... maybe when the weekend comes!

  9. It's pretty nice, and seems to last the longest out of all the lipsticks I bought :)

  10. I love my NARS concealer, it provides great coverage though it's definitely not dewy. Maybe try a dewy concealer on top of your normal one? I use Bobbi Brown's tinted eye brightener - I usually find that they don't provide a ton of coverage either so I layer. I'm really flattered you're asking me for advice, I don't think I'm up to that level yet!

  11. Hahaha, if I won the lottery I'd probably want to get one of everything Sephora has!

  12. Can't get enough Sephora, haha!

  13. Ohh I love what you picked up in the sale! ^ u ^


  14. i'm so jealous you get to shop the sephora sale... we NEED a sephora in hong kong! awesome haul - i'm so happy i convinced you on the dior baume hehe (hope you like it as much as i do), and would love to hear what you think about the bite beauty mix n mingle lip mini.. it looks really interesting :)

  15. hey sweetheart!

    such a lovely post! love your style and your outfits!

    i think that are outfits look really similar!

    i would love to stay in touch with you! We can also

    cooperate in the near future!

    find me on

  16. Aaaah, I can't believe there isn't a Sephora in Hong Kong! I'm really liking the dior baume so far, I'm surprised at how hydrating it feels! Unfortunately I'm kinda on the fence about the bite beauty lip mini, it's a matte crayon-type lip thing and it's the most drying out of all the lip purchases... though a lot of other people seem to like it! I have a feeling I should have gotten one of their mini lipsticks instead haha, but I'm trying to make this one work!
