Sephora VIB Sale Order Finally Arrived!

Sephora VIB 20% off sale

Gotta love a 20% off sale!

I typically have a long wait to receive nearly anything I order online (the joy of living on an island in the middle of the North Atlantic – lol), but this order seriously took ages. Normally when I place a Sephora order I get a second email that it’s shipped within a couple of days. This time it took 10 days before it even shipped. I guess the volume of orders was extra high because of the big sale.

So I was super happy when it finally arrived. I re-stocked on some favourites that I was nearly out of like:

  • MAKE UP FOREVER HD Invisible Cover Foundation in “110 Porcelain Pink”: This is my third bottle. For a full review checkout my post on why this is the best liquid foundation for fair skin.
  • MAKE UP FOR EVER HD Microfinish Powder: Love this powder for setting my under-eye concealer. I featured it in my Most Re-purchased Products of All Time post. I only ever order the 0.14 oz “mini” size because you use so little it lasts forever (for me, nearly a year).  I was surprised that they changed the packaging on the HD Powder though. What I really liked about the mini size was that it was so mini it barely took up any space and was perfect for traveling. The new container is much bigger. Not lovin that so much.

  • Guerlain Maxi Lash Mascara: The best mascara ever. They aren’t lying when they call it a “volume-creating and curl-sculpting mascara”. It also doesn’t budge or flake on me. A mascara worth $34 CAD? Absolutely! For more pics see my Guerlain Store shopping post.
  • Laura Mercier Secret Concealer 0.5: Also featured in my Most Re-purchased Products of All Time post. Best under-eye concealer ever IMO.

Now on to the new stuff. I could not resist ordering the Tony Moly Bbo Bbo Lip Balm. I mean, look at this packaging!

Tony Moly Bbo Bbo Lip Balm in "Honey"

Tony Moly Bbo Bbo Lip Balm in “Honey”

Here’s the description from the Sephora site: “It is a cult-favorite amongst Korean pop stars, and ‘Bbo Bbo’ means ‘kiss’ in Korea. This clear-colored balm is infused with hydrating ingredients that include vitamin E and either honey or blueberry extract. Its soft fragrance leaves lips with an irresistible scent.”

I love the packaging, but I am not in love with the lip balm. Its heavily scented (and doesn’t smell like honey) and the perfumeyness lingers and it was all I could taste. Ick.

Speaking of cute packaging though, I love the free Sephora tote that came with the order!

I’m going to do separate, full reviews on my other two purchases – Benefit’s World Famous Neutrals Most Glamorous Nudes Ever eyeshadow kit and the NARS Audacious Lipstick in “Liv”. So check back for those soon!

Thanks for reading ❤

    Great haul! Have you ever tried the elf under eye setting powder? It’s only $3 I think and it’s really good for setting concealer. 🙂

  5. I still don’t have my order! But that’s not because it hasn’t arrived, I shipped it to my friend is why. Have to pick it up from her. I mostly got gifts a few little goodies for myself, of course. 🙂 I have to try that Guerlain mascara at some point!

    Makeup Forever’s HD Finishing Powder is one of my favorites too, until I discovered a very cheap dupe! If you read the ingredients all that is listed is silica powder. So I decided to try out just plain out silica powder and low and behold it works just as well and is just a fraction of the price. On Coastal Scents website you can order 1oz for $4.95USD. I bought an 8oz bag for $26USD and it will last me years! Today only they have 50% off their entire site so for 1oz it’s only $2.48 versus $39. I hope this helps save your wallet a little!
