My Sephora VIB Sale Haul

Hey guys, happy Saturday! I received my Sephora 20% off VIB purchase a couple days ago so I thought I'd share what I got. I was really tempted to get some of the bigger lip sets like the one from Make Up For Ever or Bite. Also, the Urban Decay Mother Lode Shadow Set wouldn't have hurt either. But I was "good" and only bought a few of the smaller holiday sets.
Here is what I got:
  • Benefit Stay Flawless 15 Hour Primer ($38 CAD):
  • I reviewed this product back in August so this is a repurchase. I still have 1/6 of the old one left but it seems like I am using up this product pretty quickly. Overall, great primer, check out my full review here.
  • Best Bite Set ($28 CAD):
  • A lipstick/crayon set from Bite, I bought it because I loved "Pomegranate" (reviewed here) from the same line. The packaging is super cute and I will review these guys in the upcoming weeks.
  • Sephora Supreme Cleansing Oil ($18 CAD):
  • An affordable alternative to the Shu Uemura Cleansing Oil, this one is a repurchase, check out my review here.
  • Lip Tar All-Star Mini x 4 Set ($25 CAD):
  • You know how I love my lip tars, I picked up this set because  I don't have any of these colors. I plan on making some personalized lip tar lip balms for friends this Christmas so I think the mini set is a perfect addition to my other lip tars (see reviews here).
I also received a few samples and redeemed a 200 Beauty Inside points for a couple of lip products:
  • Marc Jacobs Daisy Perfume Sample
  • Agave Oil Treatment Sample
  • Korres Vitamin E Face Primer Sample
  • Clinique Chubby Stick Intense in "Mightiest Maraschino"
  • Stila Color Balm Lipstick in "Vivienne"
Whew, I think it was a good haul. I didn't feel good after making the purchase, as is the case whenever I spend money on makeup but I think I held back quite a bit so I am slightly proud of myself. I plan on making one more beauty purchase this year and that is the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette (actually make that two more, a little bird has told me Julep will be having a $1 Black Friday sale). And after that I swear I will go on a temporary no-buy. Did you buy anything during the VIB sale? Do share!
