Sephora VIB Haul, featuring Urban Decay, BeneFit, and more!

Hello, everyone! Last week was the wonderful time of year when Sephora holds one of its rare, and thus super exciting, sales. A full 20% off everything for their loyal VIB members! Whenever this sale rolls around, I try to stock up on a couple essentials and snag an extra treat or two. And that's exactly what I did this year!


Here's a peek at everything all nestled in their boxes:


And a quick description of each:

Urban Decay Naked Palette:
So this is a product that needs no introduction or description, but the fact that it's finally in my stash is significant! I'd been putting off picking it up for so long not because it didn't interest me and not because I didn't need it (well, I really don't need it), but because I thought I'd like it too much. So much so that all of my existing eye shadow palettes would be put to shame. So eye shadow collection beware, I now have the ultimate neutral collection in my grasp!


BeneFit They're Real! Mascara
I received a mini-sized version of this in my annual birthday gift from Sephora and I was pleasantly surprised! In short, it adds incredible length, volume and curl without any hints of smudging or flaking. It's really a wonder! While its higher price has led me to stick to my trusty Clinique mascaras, I had to pick this up while the sale was on. To see my full review, click here!

NARS Smudge-Proof Eye Shadow Base and Pro-Prime Pore Refining Primer Oil-Free (minis)
I got these two little primers as freebies with my purchase. Have heard good things about both, so can't wait to give them a go! NARS products rarely disappoint, so I have high hopes :)


Anastasia Brow Powder Duo in Taupe:
This is one of those products that may not be a super exciting purchase, but it's something that I cannot be without! I've been using this for years to fill in my sparse brows and it works wonders to shape my brows while looking natural and lasting all day. I love it so much, that I thought I'd give it a proper portrait, below :)



Marc Jacobs Enamoured Hi-Shine Nail Lacquer in Petra
Since the launch of the Marc Jacobs line at Sephora a couple months back, I've been lusting after this polish. It's a totally unique shimmery, glossy bronzy purple shade that I can foresee on my nails quite often this Winter!


And my haul came in this cute little striped lippy bag that will definitely come in handy:


And that's it! I'm super stoked about everything I picked up over the weekend and am already planning some future posts with these products. Naked Palette "Face of the Day" posts, here I come!

Did any of you have a VIB haul last week? Loving or craving any of the goodies I featured here?

Thanks for reading :)

  10. I'm actually pretty jealous because yes, I am craving something from your haul! The Naked palette. We don't have Urban Decay here so no Naked for me. And it really sucks because like you said - that is the ULTIMATE neutral collection of shades...

  17. Great haul. I finally live somewhere with a Sephora and I can never stop going in there. Every times I go in there, they have some sort of 15%-25% off, so bad for my bank balance :p
