Sephora Haul | VIB Sale

Hey Beauties!

October was a bit of a crazy month for me because all month long I was creating extra makeup looks and outfits to enter into the Mapleview Muse contest, hosted by a local shopping centre. The Muse contest is a run monthly and the prize changes but for October, the prize was a $500 gift card to Sephora! I knew that Sephora would be having their bi-annual VIB sale sometime around the beginning of November so the contest had perfect timing. I put a lot of energy into creating content specifically for that contest and it must have paid off because I ended up winning! I collected my prize last week and practically ran to Sephora because I was so excited. So today, I thought I would show you what I picked up at the VIB sale. 


Sephora Favourites Draw The Line Kit – $36

Benefit Cosmetics Gimme Brow – $26

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara – $30

Smashbox Full Exposure Travel Palette – $23

NARS Dual Intensity Eyeshadow in Dione – $33


Bite Beauty Best Bite Remix Mini Lip Pencils – $29

Bite Beauty Mini Matte Lip Cream in Aubergine – $15

NARS Audacious Lipsticks in Audrey, Charlotte & Anna – $37


Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush Palette – $67

Laura Mercier Radiance Foundation Primer – $24

Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder – $29

NARS Powder Blush in Sin – $35


First Aid Beauty Hydrating Duo – $19

Sephora Collection Solid Brush Cleaner – $17

Boscia Konjac Complexion Clearing Cleansing Sponge – $19

Elizabeth & James Nirvana White Rollerball and Lipgloss – $35

I think it was definitely a successful trip to Sephora but of course there are a million more things on my wish list. What did you pick up at the VIB sale?

    OMG I have been waiting for this post!! You got yourself so many nice things!! Cannot wait to see how these Nars Lipsticks look on you! I picked one up in the shade Vera. I cannot wait for my package to arrive! Hopefully I'll get everything I bought during the sale by the end of the week but I doubt it.. Their shipping is so slow sometimes (ok all the time lol)!! xxAlexandra | The A Style | Beauty and lifestyle

      Have you tried the international shipping? Maybe split an order with a friend to keep costs down!
