sephora haul

I decided to start off the the New Year with quite a few beauty buys that I’ve been loving! I am so excited to recommend every one of these products that I’ve recently purchased. Many of these were on a my wish list for a while so I’m happy to now say they are on my makeup dresser!

Here’s what I recently purchased and have been loving. I am only including new products (new to me) in this haul, not ones that I repurchased.

Farmacy Honey Potion Renewing Antioxidant Hydration Mask:

This is the only face mask I’ve been using on my dry winter skin, and I have to say I love it. I enjoy the subtle warming sensation on my face and how it transforms into a luxurious thick cream, leaving my skin hydrated and supple.

CLINIQUE Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector & Optimizer

I am really happy with this serum so far- I’ve been using ir every night for a little less than 4 weeks now and I’ve already begun to notice that my post acne marks are lighter than they were before and that overall my skin looks brighter and healthier. The texture of this serum is great- it applies like satin and leaves my skin velvety smooth.

First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Lip Therapy:

I like to use this lip balm at night or in the mornings before applying my makeup. I don’t think it does anything amazing to my lips other than keep them hydrated and soft. I like that it has no scent or color.

Marc Jacobs Beauty Fineliner Ultra-Skinny Gel Eye Crayon Eyeliner Blacquer:

I think this one of the products I am most excited about. I was on the hunt for an eye liner for such a long time. I am not great at applying eye liner and wanted something thin so I could be more precise with it. This is great! I love not only how thin it is, but also that it stays put all day. Do you have a hard time applying eye liner? What is your favorite eye liner?

I recently got myself a sample of this eye cream, after hearing many wonderful reviews. Having used up my sample, I was very impressed with the texture of this cream. I love the thickness of it and how well it absorbs into my eye area. I’ve been using it in the mornings before applying makeup and at night. I have now been using the full size for around 2 weeks- so in total I’ve been using this day and night for a month and wow I love it! I find the scent to be very plesant.

Marc Jacobs Beauty Le Marc Liquid Lip Crème Slow Burn 458:

I am so obsessed with the formula of this lip cream!! It’s the perfect marriage between a liquid lipstick and a lipgloss. It’s creamy, hydrating, not overly pigmented and the shade is just gorgeous! I think I have to pick up some more shades in the range.

MAKE UP FOR EVER Ultra HD Invisible Cover Stick Foundation 173 = Y445:

I am not a huge fan of the MUFE Ultra HD foundation, but this stick version of the foundation is a total game changer for me. Fist of all, the color is beyond perfect for my skin tone. Recently I have been struggling to find the right shade and undertone in my foundations. Aside from the shade choice, this foundation stick applies like a dream- it’s super super easy to blend and looks like my skin but better! I think this is my new holy grail foundation. I like to blend it out with a makeup brush rather than a beauty sponge. Highly recommend! This is so lightweight and travel friendly as well.

Anastasia Beverly Hills lipglosses in Bordeaux, Metallic Rose and Vintage –

I am not a liquid lipstick girl. I just don’t like the way they look on me- I love the shine of a lip gloss but the pigmentation of a lipstick. These lipglosses are the best of both worlds. They’re not super sticky, but have just the right amount of shine and pigment. The best part though? They smell like vanilla cupcakes:)

I keep the vintage shade on my desk at work since it looks great on top of any lip color I have on.

What have you gotten from Sephora recently??

Sincerely, 

Surleen

  1. The Farmacy Honey Potion Renewing Antioxidant Hydration Mask sounds amazing! Everyone raves about it.
    Is the Marc Jacobs liner a new launch? I have the regular liner and I love the formula – I’d love to get a thinner version.
    Been hearing lot of good things about ABH lip glosses – the shade you got is gorgeous!
    Great Sephora haul – I pretty much only buy from Sephora during their sales which is April and November! 😉
