A Mini (Really Mini) Sephora Haul

I suppose one product does not a haul make. But, here we are.

As I’ve already shared, I recently made VIB (life goal realized – is that sad? Don’t answer that.) As a result, I had a free shipping code. This, I reasoned, would be an excellent way to make a small purchase – without trying to get to the $50 free shipping minimum – while also redeeming some of my rewards points. Because something had finally popped up in the rewards shop that caught my eye – a mini Tarte Cheek Stain in the color “flush” (a sheer berry).

I had to have it, and I have NOT been disappointed. It’s easy to apply, super long-lasting (even in hot, humid weather), and looks great. Much more of a flushed-I-just-ran-ten-miles look than hey-I’m-wearing-lots-of-blush. I can see why it is considered such a cult item.

The main product in my order was from the new line of skincare masks available via the Sephora Collection. There are six new different kinds of fiber masks (the paper kind that you unfold and place over your face, leaving you looking like something from a horror movie while simultaneously tending to your skin) and while they all looked great, I had my eye on the Green Tea Mask, which was touted as both mattifying and anti-blemish. This mask is a FIND, and I’m really looking forward to trying the other ones in the line. My skin was left feeling and looking phenomenal. It helped get rid of a few blemishes that had popped up, and it made my skin less oily and more matte. It also didn’t dry out my skin – just left it perfectly balanced and glowing. Can’t argue with those kinds of results.

The three free samples perk that comes with Sephora orders is always a draw for me as well. Sometimes I’m tempted to place an order, just so I can score some of the available samples! This time around, I was really excited to try the new bumble & bumble surf shampoo and conditioner. Unfortunately, they ran out of stock and had to send me a substitute – the Living Proof samples shown above. I do have to say that I really appreciate the thought that goes into substitutions. Any time I’ve had a sample sub in an order, it seems like they really try hard to give me something similar to what I’d ordered (haircare subs for haircare, etc). To me, this is another reason why Sephora stands head and shoulders above any other beauty stores.

On the sample front, I also received a sample of Alien perfume (which is nice, but won’t be replacing my beloved Angel anytime soon) and the Sunday Riley Good Genes treatment, which I haven’t tried yet, but have heard amazing things about.

How about you – any great Sephora orders/perks/samples lately?

Cheers,
birdie
