A Sephora & Drugstore Beauty Haul

Hey Beauties! 

My makeup addiction is as serious as ever and if you have been following my Instagram then you would know I went to Sephora twice last week. Oops. The first time was just to pick up a replacement of my holy grail liquid liner – the Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in Trooper and the second was on a girls day at the mall with my friend Heather. I wasn’t quite as restrained on that particular trip although I think I did a pretty good job at leaving with my wallet intact. 

I tend to get a bit carried away every single time I step into Sephora and I have a wish list that is a mile long but this time I went in knowing exactly what I wanted so I was in an out in less than an hour. It really should have only taken 5 minutes but I’m not that talented, it is Sephora after all. The need to swatch everything is real. 

I was on a bit of a lip product bender and I went in looking for a few new liquid lipsticks to add to my collection. I was planning on picking up a few of the Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks ($24) but of all the shades I wanted, they only had two in stock. Bow N Arrow is one of the new shades added to the line and it was love at first swatch, it is a brown based nude that seems to pull more pink in direct sunlight. The second shade Vampira is a stunning dark cranberry. These are my first foray into Kat Von D lipsticks but I am dying to try more. 

Next on the lip product train I decided to try out the Sephora Collection Cream Lip Stains ($16) that I have heard SO much about. I wasn’t sure what shades I wanted but I was so crazy excited to see that #13 Marvelous Mauve was in stock so of course I picked it up. It has been labeled a dupe for Stila’s Patina which I am still searching for and it is the perfect mauve. Next I picked up #06 Pink SoufflĂ© a gorgeous mid tone pink and #14 Blackberry Sorbet a rich berry. All three are intensely pigmented and set down to a matte finish in mere seconds. 

While waiting to check out I may have been tempted by the aisle of doom and I ended up grabbing a travel size of the Make Up Forever Step 1 Skin Equalizer in the smoothing version ($19) to test out before buying the full size and a small bottle of the Sephora Collection Master Cleanse: Daily Brush Cleaner ($10.50). I also redeemed a few of my VIB points for a sample of the new Marc Jacobs Mod Noir fragrance and an amazing “lipstick is the answer” tote bag. 

I also finished off my makeup haul by picking up a refill of my current favourite foundation and concealer – the L’oreal Infallible Pro Matte Foundation and the Maybelline Master Conceal Camouflaging Concealer – so I thought I would throw them in this haul.

    Yes! The Tattoo liner is amazing. HG status for sure in my books too. My friend has been using that L'oreal foundation and she loves it! Since you both like it, I'm gonna have to pick it up sometime!
