Last week was the Sephora VIB Spring Sale and we got all crazy for a 15% rebate. I know it’s a small discount when you think about it, but with the prices of makeup going through the roof, we Canadians, are trying to save as much as we can with our « Monopoly » dollar…!
So how did I do? Compared to the five previous years, I was able to restrain myself and I just bought a few items. I tried to forget about my Low-Buy and hide my frugal side for the event, but what can I say, when I decided to commit to a Low-Buy, it is now too well programmed in my head that I just can’t let myself down… Hell will freeze over before I break my own commitment!!! OK, it surely didn’t froze but I think that Satan put on a scarf and a tuque, and maybe caught the flu!!!
Here is the “haulage”…
Nars Blush in Impassioned
Brianna Stanko and I have similar tastes and when she recently stated that one of her lifetime favorite blush was the new Nars in the shade Impassioned, I knew I had to get it! If I thought that I recently found my HG “Nude” blush in Mac Buff, I might have just discovered my ultimate pinky/nude one. You have to get a closer look at this one, it’s that beautiful!!!
Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colour in Amethyst
Chelsea Garay did a GRWM video using this LM Amethyst Caviar Stick and the result was so beautiful that, right away, I knew I was doomed and this bad boy will find it’s way to my collection. On my green eyes it’s dare I say, very sexy!
bareMinerals 5 in 1 BB Advanced Performance Cream Eyeshadow SPF 15 in Sweet Spice
This is one of the best kept secret ever! Thru my previous posts, you surely noticed that I’m in love with Mac Painterly Paint Pots! Little did I know, this bareMineralsBB Cream Eyeshadow is as good as my cherished pots.
Sephora Rouge Gel Lip Liner in Melon-Choly (05)
I just wanted to see for myself what was the hype about with this one, and this Matte Melon Pink color is totally right up my alley. Thanks to all the Bloggers who made me buy it!
Anastasia Beverly Hills Angle Cut Brush # 15
This was an impulse buy! I just saw Tina (The Fancy Face) use this brush in her tutorial and I thought that adding this one in my routine would make my fake eyebrows look even better… The jury is still debating in this one!
Tarte Powder Player Bamboo Pressed Powder Brush
I needed a brush to use exclusively for my pressed powders so I opted for this one. Will see if I like it as much as my “i on beauty” Angle Blusher.
Marc Jacobs The Face II Brush
I never apply my foundation with a brush; it’s always with sponges. I thought that having a really good foundation brush would give me another option if I feel like changing my routine: Fingers, sponges or brush!!! I haven’t used it but it surely feels luxurious.
Shiseido Tinted Uv Protector SPF 43
Shiseido’s sunscreen products are among the best if you are suffering from acne. First Impressions on this one are unfortunately 50/50. A review should come very soon !
Nars Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer in Terre-Neuve (Light 0)
I’m all about sheer foundations, BB creams and tinted moisturizers. This one looked amazing so guess what, I bought it… I never understood girls who were obsessed with foundations before but now that I’ve entered a strange “face” chapter in my life, I totally get it ! BTW, do you see any eyeshadow palette in my haul ?!? Trading an addiction for another… Way to go Ingrid!!!!
Nars Sheer Glow Foundation in Mont Blanc (Light 2)
The only reason this product ended up in my basket is because a Sephora associate gave me a sample and the rest is history. Wow! Amazing! Wish it came with a pump but still, Wow! A glorified review will come very soon …
Note: I’m now dreading my April monthly spending since I’m pretty sure that I busted my budget 😩 Too many stuff to try on a too little budget!!
Thanks for stopping by my beautiful friends xxx
