Nat’s Sephora VIB 20% Haul!


As you all know, Sephora had their annual 20% off all the store event from Nov 6-10. The 3CB went to the VIB Rouge soirée on Nov 5 where they had the store closed to the public and only had the people that signed up for event in the store. I had been waiting for this and with the holidays sets being all out for sale, it was very exciting to make up a list and go shopping at a discount!

I did place an order online as well since there were items that were only available online or that I didn’t want to miss out. So as soon as I got my code, I jumped on and placed my order in my already-ready basket!

Here are the items that I picked up.

My #1 item that I did not want to risk it selling out was the Bite Beauty Mix N’ Mingle set for lips. I LOVE Bite Beauty products so this was at the top of my list. I will do a Yay of Nay Sunday on this item to review it.

My next item was the Bare Minerals Jumbo Size Original Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 Collector’s Edition in Fairly Light. I really do love this foundation, and mine is getting low, so I figured I would not only stock up on it but get a bigger size for a great price! However many times I change or try different foundations, this is one that I just find myself going back to. So there will be no waste on the size of this product.

You can see the difference in the sizes from the original at $34 which is 0.28oz vs the deluxe size at $48 (minus 20% off) of 0.6oz.

The 2 previous items were on my online order, the following ones are from the VIB Rouge Soirée.

The 1st item that his my basket was the NARS Audacious lipstick in Anita.

NARS - Audacious Lipstick

I did not intend to get this lipstick at all (or any Audacious lipsticks) but since I had heard so much about them from all of you on Youtube, I made my way over there. Well, even if we were early at the event and that there was not a lot of people yet, I had trouble making my way to the NARS display, it was full of women looking at these lipsticks. When I finally made my way, I swatched two, Raquel and Anita. As soon as Anita was swatched, I found my hand reaching for it and I snagged it. What I did not realize is that it was the last one in stock. hehehe 🙂 Just as soon as I held it in my hand, a woman gasped and said, OMG what is that colour on your hand?! When I told her, she hurried to try to find one… and yes, I was holding the last one. I told her I was sorry and left the display still holding on to it.. (you never know, it it was in my basket, it may have disappeared.. :S). As much as I didn’t not plan to get this lipstick, I am really glad I did. It is the perfect nude for me.

The next item I went for was the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette. I have been eyeing this SOOOO much but never purchased it because of its cost, but with 20%, it was for sure worth it. These colours are gorgeous, it was worth the splurge.

I had to return to the store to exchange a Living Proof Product that I purchased and it was the wrong product. So I went back on a quiet morning of the last day of the sale and of course had to purchase other items.

I replaced the Living Proof item with the right one: the Living Proof style extender spray. I did try the sample size of this product and I did see a big different with how long my hair would last throughout the day. I got the one for fine hair since my hair is so fine that any style has trouble staying in it. So far so good!

Living Proof - Prime Style Extender™ Spray

The next item I wasn’t going to pick up… but when I saw it, I just had to. Another item that I have been wanting for a long time the bareMinerals READY 8.0 Power Neutrals palette. I won’t get too much into a review of this since a Yay or Nay Sunday will cover the review of this item (but pssst, I will say that I am happy I got it!).

The next item I realized that I forgot to add to my picture at the beginning of this post! I also wanted to try a new liquid foundation and since I have dry skin and the winter just makes it worst, I need one that doesn’t catch on my dry skin. The lady at Sephora recommended the YSL Le Teint Touche Éclat illuminating foundation. I am not sure I am 100% convinced on it. For the price tag of $62, I am not blown away. For that reason, I think I will be returning it.

The last item that I just grabbed while waiting in line to pay is the FAB Facial Radiance Pads. I have been wanting to get something that is exfoliating and these exfoliate tone and brighten.

I also picked up some Christmas gifts, which of course I won’t list here!

Leave your comments below about what you got on the 20% off sale, I would love to know what you purchased! Hauls are one of my favourite vids / posts out there. Also, if you have tried any of these products, let me know how you like them, are they worth it?
