I haven’t done a Sephora haul since their VIB Rouge sale back at the end of April. APRIL, y’all! I’m trying to be less of a spender these days. Granted, I’m still picking up a few pieces here and there. But it’s much less like before where I’d dump large sums of money on paints and powders that I put on my face only to wash off a few hours later.
I tried to avoid the VIB Rouge sale, but seeing as it only comes twice a year, I had to take a gander on their website – you know, just to see if they had anything that I might need… or want? Then one thing led to another..
…I really need to work on my self control…
It all started after I read about this RMS Beauty Champagne Rosé Luminizer – I like Champagne, I like Rosé, and I like cream highlighters. That, and it’s positive as well as credible review from Popsugar Beauty, I added it to cart.
Next I needed a good powder for my kit. I swear by this powder – it’s great for the humid, Houston heat; it’s lightweight yet it sets creams very well; and it’s a decent price (compared to my other FAVORITE – Chanel translucent powder). When I clicked on this product on the site, I learned that Laura Mercier added a Translucent Medium Deep powder recently for my rich complexion ladies. So of course I got both for my kit. Seeing as this was for business reasons, I felt it was pretty justified.
The whole point of a sale, especially the VIB Rouge sale, is to take that discount and use that towards new products you haven’t tried before! I’d been eyeing the KVD Tattoo Liner in Trooper for ages, but with mixed reviews I had always neglected to try it out. But this was my chance! *add to cart* I’ve been obsessing over the Tarteist Quick Dry Matte Lip Paints. They have an amazing formula that isn’t too terribly dry, but stays really well, and with their large array of nude/neutral colors, I had to try a couple more. *add to cart*
Another point to the whole VIB Rouge sale is to try purchasing products that maybe you didn’t like before but could like now?? This time last year, I finally decided to try the cult favorite MUFE HD Foundation. At that time, I had terrible acne still. Seeing as this foundation is a light to medium coverage with a natural/almost dewy finish, this did nothing for my acne prone, acne scarred & oily skin. But after having used the amazing Rodan + Fields Unblemish regimen for about 8 months, my skin had improved dramatically and since this guy was on sale – *add to cart*. (update – I LOVE it!)
Last but definitely not least – I’d been eyeing these Becca Shimmering Skin Perfectors since last year but just never got it. For the price – $44, I wasn’t quite sure how ready I was to commit to yet another cream highlighter. But it was the VIB Rouge sale!!! You can never have too many cream highlighters! *add to cart*
I’m working on my willpower!! When was your last large haul? Are you guys loving the products from your Spring Sephora VIB Rouge Sale hauls?
