It has been A LONG time since I have done a solid Sephora haul. 1) I’m a on maternity leave ie. a fixed income. 2) I haven’t really had time to wear makeup 3) I’d much rather buy baby clothes?? But I was about $150 away from maintaining my Rouge status so Connor told me to go for it. He didn’t need to tell me twice!! I’m excited to share some of the items I purchased. Kassie’s Korner did start out as a beauty blog after all. But since I’ve unsubscribed to BoxyCharm, it’s a lot harder to make beauty related posts.
Note: This blog post is a long time coming. I ordered my package before Christmas and it didn’t arrive until after we had left for our Christmas vacation. Then I needed to take the time to actually test out the products. And I was a little too dark after returning from Jamaica to actually wear the concealer/foundation for a bit. Whoops!
This was a re-purchase. I ran out of this a long time ago and have been meaning to get around to purchasing another. I LOVE this setting spray. Not only is it affordable, the continuous mist makes for super easy application. Plus – it does the job and makes my makeup stay in tact for a long time.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Best Brows Ever Kit
I was SO EXCITED when I went in store to pick up a Christmas present for my sister and I saw that they had these in stock! They had been out of stock in my shade every single time I’ve tried to purchase one online. I recently ran out of my Benefit Precisely My Brow, and I prefer ABH’s brow wiz. It was just out of stock in my shade the last time I went to restock. I also really wanted to test out the DIPBROW Gel, but I didn’t want to purchase the full size only to be disappointed – so this kit was a great deal. I absolutely LOVE the DIPBROW gel. It’s perfect for when you don’t have time to spend on your brows. A quick swipe through the brow hairs and it will deposit some colour and make your brows look more full. I like to start with the DIPBROW gel and then go in with my pencil and define any areas.
This definitely isn’t my favourite concealer that I’ve ever used. However, it is lightweight and more on the natural looking side. I find that I can get away with wearing JUST concealer better if I use this one, and I don’t have to spend so much time blending. The colour match is also really nice, but requires some layers to hide these mama bags.
BECCA Shimmering Skin in Opal
I am obsessed with this shade in the BECCA powder highlight, so I wanted to give the liquid version a shot. I mainly ordered this to wear while on vacation with minimal makeup – but ya know, it didn’t arrive in time.
When I first open this product up, I had the most difficult time getting the actual product out. I ended up wearing a sizeable amount of it on my pants from trying a little too hard.
Overall, I actually really like this liquid highlight. I find that it blends beautifully. I just wish it was easier to get out! Since I already knew that I liked the shade, it was an easy purchase to make.
This is my new all time favourite liquid liner. I forgot how much I loved liner pens like this, because of how easy the application is. Wearing just a little bit of liner really opens up your eyes and makes you seem more awake. Or is it just me?! My liner stayed put all day without bleeding.
I’m not sure why it took me so long to realize something like this existed. I try pretty hard at being relatively environmentally friendly, yet I was using cotton rounds to take off my makeup everyday.
I really like how this makeup eraser takes off my makeup. Foundation, highlighter, lipstick, eyeshadow – all comes off with a few simple swipes, just add warm water. I will say however, that it is a little bit more difficult to get mascara off. Overall, I am so glad that I made the decision to purchase this! Hopefully it lasts as long as the company claims it will – a whopping 1000 washes.
I had purchased this in the past, but in the wrong shade. I returned it and exchanged it for the Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation. Needing to up my dollar amount in order to hit rouge, I figured I would give it another shot (in a better shade choice). This foundation is super lightweight and has a natural finish, and buildable coverage. My main complaint is that there is no pump! I know you can purchase a pump separately but come on…
I needed to spend a few more dollars to maintain my rouge status, so I chose to pick up a few more Invisibobbles. I love this hair rings because I find they are gentler on the hair and are less likely to tangle.
Overall, I am really happy with my recent Sephora purchases. I have been making a point to sit down and spend 10-15 minutes on my makeup in the morning because it helps me to feel more confident. Just because I became a mom, doesn’t mean I have to give up my hobbies from before! Are any of these products on your faves lists? What are some other products I need to try in my next haul?! Until next time – XX.
