Sephora VIB Haul

I had quite the wishlist for the big Sephora VIB sale but what I really wanted was the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette. Naturally, the palette sold like hot cakes and I missed every restock by just a few minutes. Of course I couldn’t skip the opportunity to save 20% so I found other goodies to haul!

I’ve had my eye on the Marc Jacobs Honey perfume for a while now so I finally picked up a full sized bottle. One of the ladies in fragrance suggested I mix it with Dot and it was instant love! Honey smells delicious alone but layered with Dot it’s just amazing. It has the sane lightweight flirty floral vibe as it’s spotted cousin but smells a bit sweeter. I believe it’s the mix of honeysuckle, orange blossom and vanilla that makes it so sassy yet feminine. It’s a wonderful fragrance that works well during a day of work or night of play!

I ordered my bottle of Honey online so I was able to pick out 3 samples. I’ve been on a scent kick lately so I chose perfume samples and a cologne sample for my sweetie (not pictured). I chose the Dolce & Gabbana Pour Femme Intense eau de parfum and Versace Bright Crystal. I’ve already tried and love (plus recently hauled lol) the original Dolce & Gabbana Pour Femme so I knew I’d like the new Intense version. Pour Femme Intense has more of a woody scent and feels more seductive. This was my first time trying Versace Bright Crystal and I really like it! It’s such a fun floral scent. At first spray the peony, magnolia and lotus flower notes emerge. As it dries down, Bright Crystal has a light, crisp fruity scent.

A haul isn’t a haul without one lippie! That’s just how I roll! I tried the Urban Decay Revolution lipstick briefly when I received a sample of Anarchy in my August Ipsy Glam Bag and liked it. Recently, I wore Anarchy for an entire day and it was so comfortable to wear! It goes on super creamy and wears for hours on end. Plus it’s not at all drying! I played around with the line and settled on Venom (bright plum) and Naked 2 (medium beige nude). I also picked up another Rouge Volupte Shine in 19 Fuchsia In Rage (vivid fuchsia) because I love the formula. It’s not as long lasting as the Urban Decay lipsticks but the formula is just as comfortable. Check out the swatches!
