Sephora Haul!

Hey Guys!
I'm sooooo excited because yesterday a Sephora opened up close to my house! The closest Sephora prior to this location was 2 hours away!!! This is good and bad news. Good because I don't have to drive forever, bad because now I'm going to be spending WAYYYY too much money. I went in with a list, but some of the things I was looking for were already out of stock. It was insane in the store. I kinda just wanted to get out of there as soon as I stepped in the store. Usually when I'm in Sephora I like to take my time and look at a bunch of things, but I couldn't do that today :(.

I went to check out the Kim K perfume just to see what it smelt like and I didn't end up picking it up because it smelt kind of juvenile to me. I don't know a better way to describe it, but it smells like something I use to wear from the GAP when I was a preteen. :S With that said, it doesn't smell bad per say, but just cheaper than the price tag I guess.

I also really wanted Make Up For Ever Waterproof Brow Coorector in #3, but that was sold out. I might end up picking it up on, but being a Canadian resident I must spend $120 to get free shipping (I hate paying shipping so I always end up getting a bunch of things in order to make the "free shipping" quota, but I don't want to do that now since I already spent a lot in the store").

With all this said, I still picked up a bunch of things I've been wanting. I kinda went crazy with Make Up For Ever. Here are the things I ended up getting:

Make Up For Ever HD Primer in #0 Neutral: The only primer I have tried is SMASHBOX Photo Finish Primer. I wanted to try something different and since I've been really into MUFE HD lately (I ran out of my first bottle and had to buy another), I decided I may as well use the HD primer to go with it.

Make Up For Ever HD Foundation in #125 Sand: I've been using this every day because it makes my skin look the most natural and lasts the entire work day (even through sweating...etc.). I had to pick up another bottle because I finally hit the bottom. I said I like Revlon Photo Ready better than this, but as of this moment, this is my HG foundation out of every foundation I've tried!

Make Up For Ever Lift Concealer in #3: Have yet to try this out yet, but I'm really looking forward to using it. I hear great things about this product.

Korres Lip Butter in Jasmine: Soft pinky nude lip balm. Super moisturizing with a sheer wash of colour. I've never tried a Korres product before and I'm really impressed with this lip butter.

Urban Decay "Summer of Love" Palette: This is my first palette and Urban Decay product EVER! I fell in love with the packaging because I'm a flower child at heart and the colours were right up my alley. I haven't tried this out yet, but I'm really excited to try out UDPP in Sin, the eyeshadows and Bourbon 24/7 eyeliner! Check out the swatches below! These eyeshadows are sooo pretty and have the most beautiful sheen to them!

Benefit Stay Don't Stray: I got a free sample of this and it says it can be used as an eyeshadow or concealer base. I've never tried a concealer primer before so I'm going to strictly use this for that since I already have some eyeshadow primers I love.

I'm working on a ton of posts this weekend because I'm quite far behind on product reviews. I hope to have a few of these up this week! Hope you are all having a good weekend. I'm about to head out to a bar/restaurant to watch UFC with my man!


  1. great haul, i've been wanting every single thing you got! i loooooove urban decay palettes!

  2. Great haul!! I have that same experience with Sephora though, they always seem to be sold out of what I want at the time.

  3. I'm so pumped at how close this Sephora is!! I can't wait to go there! I'm going to wait till the crowds die down a little I think. Great purchases though!!

  4. Awesome goodies!! I've been wanting to try MUFE's HD Foundation and primer for the longest time! I do need to hit up my Sephora one day! Also, the Benefit Stay Don't Stray primer is on my most wanted list for ages! Do indeed need to try it someday!

  5. You've been Sephora whoring too!lol
    I'm obsessed!
    I wanna try the MUFE hd!

  6. Did you try the MUFE foundation yet? Mufe primer in 0 and 2 work so good and they smell good too.

  7. I love Sephora too! But here in the US they are much easier to come by, fortunately for me (unfortunately for my wallet).

    If you end up not liking the MUFE primer you should definitely try the Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer. It is AMAZING!

  8. I have the Urban decay summer of love palette on my wishlist as well and I loooove mufe's lift concealer! Can't wait for some FOTD's

  9. woww great haul! i wish they had sephora in australia :( x

  10. What a great haul!I love the Korres Lip Butter, I've had mine for ages and it's brilliant. I still want to try the MUFE HD foundation!I will have to pick some up soon. Great post!

  11. Aww, I am jealous! I don't have a sephora near me, not in germany at all :D MUFE is a brand I never tried, but I want so bad!!! The products sound great. Let us know what you think after testing them all! xoxo

  12. The haul looks amazing! :] I really wanna try out the Make Up Forever stuff too but it's really expensive where I live and hard to get to. :[

    Would you maybe do a look with the Urban Decay Summer of Love palette? That'd be great! :)

    Love from Germany,

    <3 Vanessa

  13. you picked up some great products =) ... and yes, I hate the Kim K perfume...I usually dont really like celeb collabs anyways..


  14. Awesome haul!
    I use my primer potion as a concealer primer and it works great - makes the concealer not cake on and stays longer.

  15. Fabulous haul! I can't buy more foundation until I use up 4 that I have right now, haha, I wanna try MUFE's and some from Chanel and Dior, all in due time.

    $120 for free shipping?! Sheesh..that's a lot!

    I tried Kim Ki's perfume, errr, no thank you!

    That palette looks amazing! I need to buy a full size UDPP at some point, I got a small one with the Alice in Wonderland palette.

    I have about 5 sephora's near by, one of which is 7 minutes and another is one station away from my job, so during lunch I always wanna run there, but I resist and I stay in my office, lol. So, it's all about control :)

    Can't wait to hear about MUFE concealer! I tried the sample one you received, no likey, can't wait to hear what you think.

  16. Wow, these colors are awesome!
    And you're beautiful:D


  17. I loooove MUFE HD foundation! I did try one of their concerler pens/stick? Awesome coverage and really creamy but I used it up in about 2 weeks :( you have to let us know how the primer and conclear work out!

  18. do you use mac? if so whats your shade because i just bought the MUFE 125 foundation online and im NW35 in MAC

  19. @Nicole - In MAC I'm either an NC25 or NC30 depending. I can use MUFE 125, 127 and they are both good. 125 can adapt to whether I'm tan or not so tan... it kinda just works with my skin
