Sephora makeup haul

I have a confession to make. I live for Sephora’s sale. Two months ago, there was a VIB Appreciation event (see my haul here) and now there is a on going event VIB holiday sale for the entire month depending on the Beauty Insider tier.


I stocked up on a few skincare favourites but I want to dedicate a post to new makeup products that are totally unnecessary but just so irresistible.

I have so many eyeshadows but have never owned a Tom Ford Eyeshadow Quad so I got the Honeymoon palette. Two bronzes gold shades, a reddish bronze shade and the most gorgeous burgundy plum shade (which is missing from my collection).

I also got a satin shimmery warm taupe called Zebeline from Suratt Beauty which I find very easy to wear for everyday. Suratt is a very gorgeous  underrated brand and I also got the Expressioniste Brow Pomade which I think is the best eyebrow gel I have ever tried. My brow hairs are long and unruly and nothing holds them like the Suratt.

I find my NARS Audacious lipstick in Catherine (featured in this post) is too bright for everyday and this new Shiseido VisionAiry gel lipstick in shade Bullet Train caught my eye. The formula is so lightweight and comfortable, and I love the muted but peachy shade. The only con is the lipstick gets drying over time but easily to be reapplied.

I am always on the look out for a good pore filling primer and the Tarte Timeless Smoothing primer is a winner. This basically erased some enlarged pores I have on my cheeks.

I think the prettiest product I have ever seen is the Dior Nude Luminizer Shimmery Powder in Nude Glow. The finish is shimmery (but non-glittery) and gives you the most subtle expensive sheen.
