Sephora Haul

Well, I went a little crazy at Sephora, but seriously how can you not? I either go in the store or look online for one thing or just to browse and end up with a ton of new stuff! I think they have something in the air that makes you think you need everything in the store…Please back me up on this!  But I really have no excuse as I bought this haul online and the air I was breathing was my own….

First off, I finally bit the bullet and splurged on the TooFaced Chocolate Bar Palette.  It is totally worth the hype, if you run in beauty circles, you all know about it and that it smells like Chocolate! Ahhh so heavenly!  I’m pretty sure heaven will smell like chocolate or freshly baked bread… One of those two. Anywho the colors are gorgeous and pigmented and did I mention it smells like chocolate?  🙂

Look for a review and an eye look to appear on the blog soon!  I’m thinking of doing seven days of chocolate bar, like I did with the Balm’s Nude’ Tude palette.  Let me know if that is something you guys would like to see!

I also added benefit’s Feeling Dandy Perk Me Up… Lip and Cheek Kit to my shopping cart.

I have used high beam before and I like it and I am almost out of my little sample size so another little one is nice. I not used any of Benefit’s lip and cheek stains before so I am excited to try Posietint.

As you can see you have to work fast with the tint, as it left a stain on my arm and didn’t completely sheer out.  Also in this kit is a mini Dandelion highlighter and lip gloss.  After reading the reviews on Sephora I think a lot of people are confused as they said they didn’t care for the Dandelion powder but that is because they referred to it as a blush.  It is not a blush it is a highlighting powder so don’t expect a lot of pigmentation as that is not its purpose.  The dandelion gloss is great and I really like it.

I had some Sephora Points to use so the next three items are my extra 100 point perks.  Up first is Tarte’s Cheek Stain in Flush.  First off this smells amazing!  It has a fruity scent and the formula is great.  It has a smooth application and blends like a dream.

Next is Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer.  I have used this bronzer before and I know I like it so it wasn’t a hard sell.

Last in my point perk shopping cart is a Elizabeth and James perfume in Nirvana White.  It is described as a “captivating blend of delicate peony, chic muguet, and tender musk for a feminine scent with dark sophistication.” Whatev’s it smells delightful!

With a minimum purchase (which I met…)  I could get a deluxe sample size of Fresh Sugar Lip  Treatment in Rose.  I have used this before and I like it a lot so I was happy to add it to my cart!
