Sephora VIB Sale Picks and Recent Purchase Reviews

DSC_0477

I remember the day the Sephora employee handed me my shiny, ruby red card. I was both slightly embarrassed, and weirdly proud: I was a VIB Rouge! Knowing what it takes to reach this level makes my wallet cringe a bit, but being part of the club definitely has it’s perks. One of them being 15% during the April VIB sale.

I have had two posts regarding this sale, and what I’ve purchased from it in the past (You can check them out HERE, and HERE), and I figured, why ruin a good thing!? Let’s keep the streak alive!

While the Sephora sales are a great time to buy things that are bit more pricey, or maybe products you’ve always wanted to try, I did my best to only buy some essentials and you have to admit, I displayed extreme self-control this time around. I purchased five products, all of which are holy grail favorites of mine, and all of which were running extremely low. So, what were they!?


My 2017 Purchases:


I also wanted to take some time in this post to update you on some products I’ve purchased over the last few months. I do a good job sharing what I buy, but not always letting you know how they worked. Here’s to turning over a new leaf and attempting consistent updates and reviews!

Hits:

  • Kat Von D Setting Powder: I know for a fact that I’ve written about this gem, but just know that yes, I still love, and no, I won’t be looking for a replacement anytime soon.
  • Loreal Lineur Intense Liquid Eyeliner: This stuff was my go-to forever ago, and then I don’t know what happened, I just stopped buying it. Consider it a re-discovered hit, because I’m obsessed.

Misses:

  • Kat Von D Brightening Powder in Petal: This might be an amazing powder, but this particular shade is not for me. If anything, it makes my under-eye area look more tired, and  slightly sickly. I’ll be passing this along to someone else!
  • Dry Bar Dry Brunette Dry Shampoo: I love that this product really soaks up my hair’s oils, but I don’t love that it applies like a Halloween grade hair paint. When I run my fingers through my locks after using it, they are left with an undeniable brown residue that’s difficult to wash off. Oh, and speaking of washing…when I shower this stuff out of my hair, my shower is left with a dark, gunky film. Back to the brunette dry shampoo drawing board! Any suggestions?

The lesson here is: Oldies but goodies: 2, New kids on the block: 0…I guess I should go back to Batiste dry shampoo and the brightening powder in the Kat Von D contour kit!

What are some of your recent hits and misses?
