My Latest Sephora Haul – September 2020

My Latest Sephora Haul – September 2020

Hi there my beautiful lovelies! Hope you guys are doing well and staying safe. Happy first of October you all. Well, this month reminds me of the beauty of the fall. Today, I want to talk to you about my latest Sephora haul from September 2020.

As you may know, I am a huge Sephora fan. In fact, I bought my very first makeup kit from Sephora years ago. I still remember the warm greeting from the associates. When they heard that that was my very first makeup shopping they were so helpful in finding the right product that matched my skin tone and type. They even gave me a quick makeup tutorial. Thanks to Sephora, my very first beauty haul experience was relaxing and stress-free.

KVD Vegan Beauty Lock-It Precision Powder Brush – ($16 – Sale)

This is a pretty nice brush. This a powder brush with a unique arched shape and a flat profile that is specially designed for setting undereye concealer and precise highlighting. You can tell how good the quality of the brush is just by the weight. The brush itself is so soft, holds onto products with dear life until you put it where you want it. So worth it on sale and even full price honestly!

Marc Jacobs Beauty Eye-conic Multi-Finish Eye Shadow Palette in Extravagance! Limited Gold Edition – $49.50

This is a limited gold edition eyeshadow palette with seven ultra-pigmented shades from unexpected neutrals to smoky shimmers for gilded looks. Decked out in luxe gold stripes, this limited-edition eyeshadow palette covers lids in the same velvety-rich, super-plush pigment of the original Eye-Conic palettes. Style your eyes with its four fashion finishes: buttery matte velvet, shimmering satin, sparkling silk, and metallic lamé.

Oh, how I love this Extravaganza palette! The eyeshadows are creamy, pigmented, and last pretty long on my oily eyelids without primer. The shades are just beautiful and the shimmery shades don’t leave fallout all over my face like other palettes twice the price do. That last shade works so well for lining the eyes, no wet brush needed. And the shade before that is a metallic wonder. This lovely palette is a reminder that one can still buy and receive a beautiful, quality palette that is exciting to use without spending a ton of money.

“Love Marc Jacobs eyeshadow. Great color story, travel friendly. Great glam look and complements the color stories of the other Marc Jacobs palette. I’d give it a 9/10 only bc I like other Marc Jacobs palettes better and I think they could have thrown in more unique shade.”

“This was my first Marc Jacobs purchase. The shadows are pretty and blend well. They last a decent amount of time when used with an eye primer. The packaging is luxurious – this does not matter as it doesn’t contribute to the finished look. The eye shadow pans are small and the colours, while pretty, aren’t anything overly special. The price tag is hilarious, and not in a good way.”

Lancome SKIN FEELS GOOD Skin Nourishing Foundation – $35

This is my first Lancôme makeup product that I bought. This is a hydrating and oil-free foundation with SPF 23 that is infused with antioxidants, is lightweight, and ideal for that “no makeup” look. It has the perfect coverage and offers hydration without getting cakey under a mask all day. This product keeps my skin feeling fresh while providing coverage.

“I barely ever write a review, but let me tell you this product is AMAZING!!!! Personally I purchased the wrong shade because the testers were in the wrong spots and the description of the shade color wasn’t on there or was covered up. Since this shade is a little bit lighter than my complexion I blend the outside of my face only with a darker foundation now. When I first bought it I wasn’t blending at all and as time passed I realized my face was off but wasn’t aware until I left the house and took photos. I have bad house lighting anyways that was 4 weeks ago. For 3 1/2 weeks I’ve been wearing this product. Let me tell you when I mean my small acne and skin cleared up, it completely cleared up. Not only is my skin tone more evenly balance without makeup but it’s smoother and clearer. I have an uneven skin tone so my under eye area is a little darker and the skin is thin there. You can see my veins under my eye and my complexion is Rihanna’s skin tone so yea and I don’t use concealar with it. I use concealer with EVERY product I’ve used. I have never felt confident about my under eye area to leave my house without it being covered but now because of this product, my confidence with my face without makeup has grown so much. First time I felt naturally beautiful. My skin on my face is basically hormonal or occasional break outs. It’s always on my T-zone area which is my oily area. I have combination skin and I only get oily on my T-zone. It’s a few little bumps. I know everyone is different but for females who have a similar situation as mine this can be very helpful. I love to wear makeup period but I prefer a lightweight moisturizer foundation for everyday wear. This does last long but towards the end of my work day I look more like a person with really good skin than a girl wearing good makeup. It’s literally the definition of the name of the product. I told everyone who doesn’t wear makeup regularly or doesn’t like foundation to invest in this.”

BETTER NOT YOUNGER Superpower Fortifying Hair and Scalp Serum – $47

This is a lightweight, non-greasy, leave-in serum that strengthens the scalp, nourishes the follicle, and restores essential nutrients to support healthier hair. This serum is formulated with vitamins, caffeine, and a blend of strengthening ingredients to help support healthy hair, while ceramides and kelp promote hydration and nourish the scalp. It is also safe for color-, keratin-, and chemically treated hair.

“I like this serum, it’s not greasy and I don’t have a dry itchy scalp anymore. So it’s definitely helping, I think I need to use it more often (I use once every 3 days or so). I also have thick hair, and a lot of it, so I feel like I end up using more than it says I should. My hair and scalp is never oily after I use this. It absorbs nicely. Repeat use is key.”

“Love this product!! Best results if you use it daily, my hair is growing!!! Only been using it for a week and I’m happy with the results. I was a bit hesitant to buy it since it had mixed reviews but I’m happy I did. Doesn’t leave any weird residue in my hair either. Only complaint is the dropper, but it’s not too bad just annoying.”

“No much difference in my hair even though I used every night.”

YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE Dream Eye Cream – $49

It is an overnight eye cream formulated to visibly smooth the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, firm the look of skin, and actively hydrate while you sleep. This product is vegan, cruelty-free, and gluten-free, and comes in recyclable packaging. This potent overnight eye cream harnesses the power of high-tech goji stem cell, plant-based ceramides, vegan hyaluronic acid, and THD ascorbate (vitamin C)—a complete overnight eye recovery in one step. Dermatologist tested for safety.

“I received a sample size of this product, so my review is based on my initial thoughts and not any long term benefits. That being said, I am very impressed with this eye cream. I have tried almost everything and over the past 5 years been using a Japanese eye cream that I love. Whenever I tried a new product (I love product testing) I’d usually noticed a decline in the look of the skin around my eyes within a week. However, the TTTP eye cream is fabulous. The skin around my eyes continues to look bright and dense. The texture could be slightly thicker for night time, but for the day works perfectly. It sinks in immediately and feels great. I have sensitive eyes and this causes zero irritation. I really love this eye cream and would consider purchasing the full size. I would love to see this cream in a tube form, I think the texture would work for this and would keep it a bit more sanitary than a dip pot. That is my only suggestion, other than that, I really think YTTP knocked it out of the park with this eye cream. Well done!”

“It’s a very nice moisturizer as is all the moisturizers from YTTP. I’ve been using YTTP products for many years and religiously use their face wash and air whipped moisturizer (which I’m obsessed with). I recently added their enzyme face scrub which I really like. I can’t say this eye cream is any kind of miracle, like I said it’s a very nice moisturizer but it doesn’t do much beyond that for me personally. I’ve been using it nightly for over 2 weeks and occasionally during the day but I haven’t seen any dramatic change. I’m in my mid 30’s so maybe I need something stronger. It’s not a bad product just not working for me personally.”

SEPHORA COLLECTION Colorful Wink-It Felt Tip Liquid Eyeliner – Waterproof: $14.

These colorful liners can be applied like a traditional liner or used to create a dramatic look. From the blackest black to pastel perfection, each shade offers the highest concentration of pigment, leaving bold lines that never smudge or fade. The no-fray, felt tip applicator ensures extreme precision, so you can achieve your favorite liner looks—quick as a wink. This not my favorite liner. It took me a few tries to get the look I wanted.

What’s Others Are Saying? 3.8 stars by 972 reviewers

“I used to purchase high-end eyeliners assuming they would work better than “cheaper” ones. I have super oily eyelids so by the end of the day, my eye makeup would be eaten by my eyelids and everything would melt off (maybe a tiny bit over-exaggerating haha). A Sephora employee recommended this one to me and I have used it ever since (for about a year). I love that it’s affordable and has long-lasting power. I have purchased it in black and brown multiple times and always carry a backup with me in my purse in case I need to touch up. I’m very happy with this eyeliner and will continue to purchase!”

“This liner is not only not waterproof but the liner is dry at the tip of the pen. I definitely will be returning both the liners I bought. If you like to create a wing this is not the liner for you. I used this for a week and it is dry already.”

Nars Soft Matte Complete Concealer – $32

This is a full-coverage, oil-free concealer that conceals and blurs imperfections with a soft-matte, natural-looking finish. NARS’s Soft-Focus Smoothing Complex contains Optimal Diffusion Powder, which transforms the look of skin by blurring imperfections with light-diffusing spheres. The formula delivers all-day wear and high coverage that’s non-cakey, and won’t settle into fine lines and pores. I for one always use an eye cream with concealer for a smooth, crease-free application.

“So I bought this because of Jackie Aina, a YouTube beauty vlogger.
I’m in the shade caramel in the original concealer. That one is my favorite. This is one is great for when really weakening up the eyes, as it appears to be a bit brighter and thicker than it’s lil sis lol. I like this for when I’m doing a full face and want the brightness but also want FULL COVERAGE!!! It’s more full coverage than the radiant one. Happy shopping. Hope this helps someone.”

“This concealer was sooo drying and patchy on me. Couldn’t wear it at all under the eyes, it just did not work. Sadly, had to return.”

Cover FX Glitter Drops – $22 on Sale

It is a multidimensional glitter highlighter that imparts a high impact, light-reflective finish. It is ultra-concentrated and customizable, and these liquid glitters can be used alone, under or over makeup, or mixed into your favorite beauty product for an incredible luxe glitter effect on the cheeks, eyes, lips, and body.

What Others Are Saying? 4.2 stars by 282 reviewers

“Ugh, can I please just tattoo these into my skin?
Seriously so beautiful and multi-dimensional, I feel like a fairie in these.
I’ve found that using a TEENSY bit and layering it on in thin layers will not disturb any makeup I have on underneath. So far I’ve tried it on my ultra-sensitive eyes, lips, cheeks, shoulders, and hair. I wore this all over my shoulders and mixed into my favorite Ouai hair oil in my hair for a recent night out and people were almost gasping at my dinner table every time this caught the candlelight. It can be a little messy to apply if putting it on the body or in the hair, but I found it washed off easily with soap and water. I was skeptical of wearing a glitter highlight since I’m out of my 20’s but the fleck on this is so fine, it’s really a sophisticated glitter. Like, I could see Dita Von Teese wearing this on stage. I definitely want to try Aurora next.”

“Don’t bother if you wear foundation
I tried to love this product because of the hype, but it didn’t work for me. I tried under makeup, on top, mixing with foundation, but it kept settling and disturbing my foundation. I tried a beauty blender and a brush. I really wanted it to work! It made my foundation, which is usually smooth, patchy, and gross. I’m not sure how people are using this, perhaps on bare skin. It might be worth it if you don’t wear concealer, foundation, etc.”

Givenchy Le Rouge Metallic Peony Lipstick – $29 on Sale

It is a glittery, metallic, and iridescent iconic Le Rouge lipstick that is reinvented for the Givenchy Gardens Collection. This unique shimmering formula delivers a frosted effect in one stroke. The result is a glittery veil coat on the lips for a fresh makeup look that is perfect for springtime. This lipstick also features a new floral look to its couture Le Rouge Lipstick case reinterpreted in an impressionist style. I love the color and the softness of the lipstick.

What Others Are Saying? 5 stars by 9 reviewers

“If this had not been on sale I would not have tied it. But it looked so pretty. It’s gorgeous on and the color would be spectacular on anyone. Highly recommend.”

“This is a beautiful shade of lipstick that comes in a beautiful case. I love the peony color and the glitter is so beautiful. Even though I only applied a little bit in the morning, it was still visible after a full day of eating, drinking, etc. I am in love with this lipstick and I totally recommend it for others to buy it as well!”

Marc Jacobs Beauty Le Marc Frost Lipstick – $16 on Sale

In just one sensual swipe, Le Marc Lip Frost Lipstick delivers high-impact metallic shine that’s never sheer or glittery. The unprecedented color payoff comes from concentrated, color-boosting pigments that are triple-milled and enriched with hydrating ingredients—imparting ultimate long-lasting color and moisture. Powerful peptides, antioxidant-rich seaberry, and natural humectants—including meranti and cocoa butter—leave lips feeling nourished. The subtle vanilla taste and scent mimic a decadent dessert.

What Others Are Saying? 4.3 stars by 43 reviewers

“Bought this item while on sale to give it a try and I’m glad I did. It applies smoothly and very noticeable on my deep lips from the very first swipe. Gives a subtle shimmer but nothing that makes you look to juvenile. The packaging has a magnetic top which was a great surprise. Love the wild print as well. It’s sleek and perfect for a clutch! Stays put as well once applied and doesn’t feel dry or caked on, but definitely requires minor touch ups throughout the day. It’s so cute to look at though that reapplying is not a hassle.”

“Thought it would have a little more red, as that’s what the picture shows. Either way, I love the shade, the feel, smell, the packaging, and love the magnetic close!! More makeup should come in animal print. Is snakeskin next?! Glad I got it on sale, rn in my life I wouldn’t pay full price, in the future, absolutely.”
