Sephora Haul

There has been numerous launches at Sephora these last two months that I just couldn’t take it anymore. Yes, I was drawn to Sephora like a moth to a light. Picking up some newness and some oldies but goodies made for a very successful Sephora shopping spree.

$34, Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter

The biggest launch that I wanted to check out was Rhianna’s Fenty Beauty collection. I spent a good amount of time swatching absolutely everything. After swatching multiple different products covering every square inch of my arms, I decided on the Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter in Lightning Dust and Fire Crystal. Highlighters are something I somehow can never have enough. I use them almost every day and this formula went on like ย a dream. The soft shimmer highlight is smooth to the touch and does not enhance any texture on the skin. Hands down my new favorite highlighter.

$14, Lock-It Makeup Setting Mist

This baby size setting spray is PERFECT for oily skin. It is refreshing and mattifying. I bought the travel size because I find myself on the go a lot and simply could not do without.

$6, Egg Cream Mask Pore Tightening

This guy was picked up in the aisle of doom near checkout (JK it is one of my favorite places in Sephora). I have yet to try this out, but I hope it does wonders for my large pores.

$24, Goof Proof Brow Pencil Easy Shape & Feel

Benefit is a great go-to brand for everything brow related. I really enjoy the shape of this brow pencil. ย It has a unique teardrop shape that dispenses via a twist. I am able to shape and define my brows with the edge of the pencil. To fill in the wider gaps in my brows, I use the width of the pencil. I purchased 03 Medium, which is a little too warm toned for me. I will definitely be buying 04 next as it is a neutral or cooler toned brown. Even though I am blonde, I like having a darker brow to create more contrast on my skin.

$49, Eye-Conic Multi-Finish Eyeshadow Palette

Marc Jacobs Beauty released a couple new color ranges to their Eye-Conic Palettes and they are incredible. I chose Scandalust because I have never been too adventurous when it comes to berry-toned eye shadows. However, this eye-catching palette has me very inspired to create a warm smokey eye this holiday season. ย The formula is very buttery and blends effortlessly-even more so than the original color ranges. This was by far my favorite buy for the day.

I currently own about six or seven Bite lipsticks. Which tells you that out of all the lipsticks that I have tried, luxury or drugstore, Bite lip products are the best. Food grade formula, wide-array of colors, and chic packaging are just a few reasons I rave about Bite Beauty. I’m all about the liquid lipstick trend. However, the over-drying, show every line in your lips isn’t all that pretty. These liquid lipstick are different. They do not dry down matte, but have a moisturizing creamy finish. This mauvey brown hue is high pigmented and can be worn with or without lip liner. I already know this will be my lips’ BFF this fall/winter.

 

I hope you enjoyed my Sephora Haul, let me know what fall beauty launches you are eyeing!
