Sephora VIB Haul ♥

We all know when this time of year comes around all of us makeup addicts get a little crazy! Thankfully, I had my head on right this time around and used my VIB discount at Sephora to only purchase items I needed or have been really wanting to try, no random items. I only purchased five things but I’m really excited about each one!

VIB

Laura Mercier Smooth Finish Flawless Fluide Foundation (Praline) – My Friend Recommended this product to me. I’ve actually never tried any Laura Mercier foundations so I am super excited to try this one as I’ve heard many good things about this specific one. Plus it’s one of her newest foundations!

Bobbi Brown Long Wear Gel Eyeliner (Black Ink) – I feel like all of the black gel liners that I own right now still don’t look super black on me. I wanted to try this one since I see it being used over and over on Youtube and it looks super duper black. Let’s hope I love it!

Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer – This is another YouTube favorite that I’ve been dying to try. I love experimenting with new primers to see if they help my makeup last longer and minimize my pores!

Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed (Opal) – This one I bought because my other one broke 😦 I couldn’t live without it and decided to take advantage of the 20%.

Cover Fx Bronzer (Sunset) – I needed a new bronzer and was stuck on my NYX Matte Bronzer for the longest time so I decided to step outside of my NYX box for a little while. I purchased the darkest color of the bunch so that I can use it for contouring.

Those were all of the items I purchased during the VIB sale. I’m very happy with the things I purchased and can’t wait to start using them!
