Sephora VIB Haul 1.0

Who else has been loving the weather down here in SoCal?  I love being able to wear boots, scarves and big sweaters.  It’s the perfect time to cover up and be cozy!  I am catching up on product reviews, so please bare with me.  One of my favorite times of year is when Sephora has their VIB sale.  It’s when VIB members get 20% off everything during a certain time frame.  This happened at the end of last year and it’s the best time to stock up on favorites and try some new ones.  I went into the store (which was madness) and also ordered a few items online, so there will be another review coming up!  Read on to see what I bought.

Ole Henriksen Truth Serum Vitamin C Anti-Aging Collagen | Sephora $48:  I am always looking for a good serum. This one is formulated with vitamin C to boost collagen, brighten and minimize fine lines and wrinkles.  I have been using this every night for about a month now and so far, I can’t tell a difference. I do like the orange candy scent that this serum has.  I’ll keep on using this and see if I notice a change in my skin.

NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer Vanilla | Sephora $29:  This is my favorite under-eye concealer and highlighter.   It’s really creamy and doesn’t sit in your fine lines like some other concealers.  I initially thought that this was too light for my skin to use as a normal concealer, but once I started using it to highlight, I realized that it’s great for that!  My face really looks much brighter and more awake on a sleepy Monday morning.

Sephora Collection Solid Clean: Solid Brush Cleaner | Sephora $14:  If you read my Sigma Brush Post, then you know I was not too happy with the brush mat I bought from them.  Well, I bought this as a cheaper version to the beautyblender beautycleanser solid and when I opened it I saw that it comes with it’s own cleaning mat!  Save yourself the money and just buy this instead.  You get two things for the price of one!  Also, this cleanser works just as well as the BeautyBlender one.  Win win! *side note – I just noticed that the beautycleanser comes with a little cleaning mat now too!*

Lancome Juicy Shaker Meli Melon | Sephora $21:  Truthfully, I bought this because my friend was buying it and it looked cool.  It smells like melon which I love.  It’s a lip oil and I like it better than the YSL Oil Tint I reviewed last year.  It’s fun since you have to shake it before using it.  The formula separates.  This is a fun product to have.  You don’t need it, and I don’t need it but it’s a nice novelty lip item.

Smashbox Camera Ready BB Cream SPF 35 Fair/Light | Sephora $39:  I don’t know how I feel about this yet.  My friend uses it and her skin looks amazing.  I don’t know if it’s because she has naturally amazing skin or if it’s this BB Cream.  In the winter, I like to use foundation since it’s cold and I won’t sweat my face off.  In the hotter months I like to use BB creams since they are more lightweight and are kind of like moisturizer and foundation in one.  This BB Cream has SPF, moisturizes and primes.  You can wear it alone or under your foundation for a flawless canvas.  I will keep you updated.  I have only used this a few times and so far it’s okay, no “amazing” skin yet.

Did anyone buy some new products during the VIB sale that they love and I need to try?  Leave a comment below!
