VIB ROUGE Haul | 2015

Sephora VIB Rouge sale haul

Was I good??? That is the question … No eyeshadow palette & no lip product, respecting my no-buys! I guess that this fact alone answer the question. Personally, I was more than good!!!  Although, as you will notice, it certainly wasn’t a flashy haul full of holiday sets and loaded with wow factor. Regardless I went with my needs instead of on impulses and, I got some great products.

So with no further ado here is what I got… (& some mini-reviews)

♥ L’Occitane Dry Skin Hand Cream ♥

This one is for my mom as a gift. She suffers from very dry hands and with the cold winter coming (too) fast, it is important to heal those chapped, cracked hands. I can assure you that she has tried every cream on the market and after a lot of testing, she now swears by this one only. A winner right here …

♥ Commodity in Magnolia ♥

Commodity in Magnolia (eau de parfum 100ml – 28$CND): I won’t elaborate more about this one, but focus on the price 🙊. I bought two; at first it wasn’t my cup of tea but BeardMan LOVES this perfume, and you know what, this one is growing on me big time! Remember, I paid 28$ again 🙈 (Unfortunately, Sephora has since corrected their mistake and it’s 120$CND)

♥ Peter Thomas Roth Hall Of Fame Kit ♥

I buy this set each and every year. The difference with this one is that you get a full-sized Strawberry Scrub, a product I hadn’t try before. This is THE deal: I paid 44$CND (minus de 20%) and the scrub is 47$CND alone. Do I have to say more?!? I will use this scrub daily as part as my morning routine. I regret not buying 2 😏 Superstar products all the way! GRAB it, GRAB it, GRAB it.

♥ Kevyn Aucoin The Contour Book. Volume II ♥

I did a full review on this bad boy HERE

♥ Kate Somerville Eradikate ♥

Truth be told, I prefer the Mario Badescu Drying Lotion, but it’s difficult for me to get it in my area. EradiKate is the next best thing and it really does a good job. I put a dab (or 10) on every pimples at night and I swear, in the morning, they are almost gone. So magical, I will most definitely repurchase. (Yes, grown ass women still have pimples!!!)

♥ DUO Eyelash Adhesive (dark tone) ♥

I suck big time at applying falsies. I never really made an effort to learn it properly but, as part of my beauty resolution for 2016, learning and perfecting this technique will be my #1 priority. Last year, it was my eyebrows and I’m happy to report that I’ve become a PRO and I can’t see myself not filling my eyebrows now.

♥ bareMinerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream in Buttercream 03 ♥

Just a few weeks ago, I bought this product and loved it so much that I bought a backup. This product gives my Dr Jart + Premium BB Cream a run for his money.

♥ Clinique Stay Matte Oil-Free makeup in 2 Alabaster ♥

I’m on a search (more a quest) to find the best foundations for my skin, and I heard such great things about this one, I chose to give it a try. So let’s wait and see, I will review it shortly.

images-6

 ♥ Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in Ethereal Glow ♥

Totally an impulse purchase (my brain took a nap during my shopping session 😝). I’ve been wanting to try these blushes for ever and this year’s Hourglass Holiday palette was not worth the 95$CND since I already own the Ambient Lighting permanent palette. Now I need Dim Infusion (On the wish list for the next VIB sale)…

 ♥ Kevyn Aucoin The Sensual Skin Enhancer (SX 03) ♥

First of all, this is a tiny 0.63oz, but the product inside is so pigmented (I swear this is PURE pigment) that I will have it for a long time. I mainly bought it to mix this new acquisition with my sunscreen and make my own BB cream. I just used it once and I like the feel a lot so far… but I need to play more with it.

♥ Anastasia Beverly Hills DipBrow Pomade in Taupe ♥

Last year I bought one in Blonde and I still have 1/4 left in the pot. I use it each and everyday so I don’t need to tell you that it’s a great investment. Even after more than a year, mine haven’t dried up and there is plenty product still left. I bought Taupe since it’s more my hair shade of the moment. Worth the hype!!! A must ☺️👍🏻

♥ Anastasia Beverly Hills Brush # 14 ♥

I swear by my ABH #12 brush. I wanted another one since I’m such a lazy brush cleaner but I went with the #14 instead, just to try it. Verdict: I love both of them! They are brows life changers. I even slightly prefer my new #14 brush since the bristles are narrower than my #12, and for my almost non-existent brows, it can create wonders.

♥ Becca Under Eye Brightening Corrector ♥

I saw Jessica Rose apply it and I was like “I need this in my life”. My first impressions are great. It really brightens my underage area. Like all my new purchases, I need to play more with it before I can write & recommend this product.

That’s it!! Not exciting I know but at least it’s stuff I will use. I’ve been burned a lot by Holiday palettes that are fantastic when you first buy them but after the “Oh! It’s so cute factor” is gone, I always forget about them since they were not that good to begin with.

Have a great weekend my beauties

Kevyn Aucoin The Contour Book Volume II |Review & Swatches

Kevyn Aucoin . The Contour Book . Volume II


Last week, I went specifically at the Sephora VIB Rouge Event for this Kevyn Aucoin “The Contour Book, Volume II” (the first one was of no interest to me!!!).  As soon as a nice sales associate put it in my hands (because I couldn’t find it), I was ready to go (well almost 😉)! Why did I wanted it so bad? Simply because, as you already know, I’m not able to resist any palette and I thought that this baby should suit my complexion perfectly. The Anastasia Beverly Hills is too dark for my fair skin & The Kat Von D seems too dark too, so with all the great reviews & praises from my blogger friends, this little number got really attractive even though I’m not the biggest fan of cream contouring products on a daily basis.

thegood

♥ The amazing value: Knowing Kevyn Aucoin’s standard pricing and quality, this is such a great deal.

♥ Travel friendly. (Small, Compact & Sturdy)

♥ Every product is great for fair skin girls. (with the exception of The Celestial)

♥Great for everyday use. 

♥All the products featured in this palette can be worn on the eyes and they perform beautifully by creating the most beautiful eye makeup. (Staying powder is beyond good)  

♥ This palette’s best quality is the blendabilty of all products: the creams blend like a charm without being sticky or greasy. Quite unique for cream products.

♥ The Sculpting Powder is a true matte taupe without any red/bronze undertone. (So rare)

♥ Great for all ages, even perfect for mature skin since there is no glitters and it offers a naturel finish without accentuating fine lines & enlarged pores.

♥ Doesn’t break me out (Yay!!!)

thenotsogood

♥ The Celestial Powder & the Cream version just barely show on my fair skin.

♥I would not recommend this Contour Book to girls who prefer a more defined highlight/contour because it is definitely more on the natural side. (a plus for me, but surely not for everybody!!!)

♥ Might be a great deal but still pricey. $$$

♥ This palette is not made to handle the uses of big brushes.

♥One drawback is that the cream products don’t have a separate cover (Why companies do this…cream products always get powder bombed!!!)

♥ Unfortunately, this product is not for my dark skin girls out there. 😔

Honest to God, the first time I used this palette, although I achieved such a beautiful eye makeup, was a real disappointment. When I noted that the Candlelight Powder & cream version were not showing at all on my fair skin, I decided that this baby was going back to the store. The second day, I used it again mainly for a review purpose. In spite of falling in love with Starlight and the Sculpting cream (so good, like nothing I ever tried before), I was still returning it. On the third day, I went all out and used every products in this “Complete Book” and I was astonished: my makeup looked so natural even though I used all these products, but nevertheless, questioning all those rave reviews, I was returning it. Forth day, aka “return day”, I still used a lot of products (why not at this point) but then, something happened 😮 When I got outside, I looked at myself and my skin was so glowy (not Becca’s Opal sometimes-way-to-overly glowy) but just glowy in an healthy way. Do I have to tell you that I took off my coat, stayed home and this palette is … cozy and showcased in my stash. Just remember how versatile this palette is and how it’s perfect as highlight, contour, eyeshadows & for eyebrows. BUT it needs a couple of days to fully appreciate all you can achieve with it. In an ideal world, Starlight would have been the size of the Candlelight powder (since I prefer this one). If for some reason you are afraid of creamy products, don’t be! Products from Kevyn Aucoin “Coutour Book Volume II” are, hands down, the BEST cream contour formulas I’ve ever tried. It’s a must if you don’t already own all the other contour palettes and love a natural look & finish. If it’s in your budget at this price (with the 20%) it’s a steal (in the world of high end makeup that is)…

Thanks for stopping by my beauties
