Sephora VIB Haul November 2017

It just occurred to me that I've shopped this sale for four years in a row. 2014, 2015, 2016 and now. One difference this toss; I was in the US when the sale started. So the first part of this haul actually took place in store.

Since I was in a store I was given a tote. And yeah it's January so I have used most of these by now. Regular readers would recognize the Son & Park Beauty Water. Yes, that's my second bottle. I was standing in front of this in The Grove and I just felt an overwhelming sense of dread when I thought about not picking it up. Sephora not shipping to mail forwarders anymore is really messing up my mojo. The only items I haven't gotten into yet are the Sephora Algae Face Mask and the Laneige Water Sleeping Mask. Let me know what you want a review on 😊

When I got home I felt like I left a lot of things I wanted behind. Typical case of tuh much tings, too little money. This year Sephora let VIB Rouge members shop all the sale dates (as should be from the beginning) so I caved and added a few more items to my cart.

Well, I know I shouldn't buy more lip products but clearly I have a problem. I will commend myself for not overdoing it on skincare cause I still have so much to go through.

It was time I got a full size of the L'Occitane Amande Shower Oil. #issamust That 'Confetti' Match Stix Shimmer Skinstick intrigued me so I'm eager to see how that looks on. Almost everything else you're gonna see soon in a #LipSwatchWeek post. I say almost because some shades I most likely will put aside right away for future giveaways πŸ˜‰

Sephora actually had some good point perks.

Although I wished that tray was bigger. Meh. Currently they're perfume samples in it.

Let me know what you want to see a review about first. What goodies did you pick up recently? Have you tried anything from Fenty Beauty? Let's talk in the comments.

Sunday Riley Good Genes versus Drunk Elephant T.L.C Framboos Glycolic Night Serum

If you're an avid YouTube watcher you've probably heard about these products. Both brands blew up on the skincare seen in short order as expensive, but effective. If you're like me you quickly began to wonder: which is better? Short answer: it depends.


Long answer...

I've mentioned Good Genes a few times before on the blog. This 'all-in-one lactic acid treatment' is raved about by the likes of Stephanie Nicole and Caroline Hirons.

From the box: "Deeply exfoliates the dull surface of the skin for clarity, radiance, and younger-looking skin. Visibly brightens the appearance of age spots and discolorations. Instantly plumps the look of fine lines and wrinkles in 3 minutes*

*Clinically tested and proven to significantly improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles in 3 minutes. Results obtained via profilometry analysis.

The Makeup Show L.A. 2017

I know, I know...I get back eva since. The task was trying to figure out if to separate the experience post from the haul. Let's lump it all together shall we? Prepare to scroll.

Sharalee thinks that this show had more of an uptight crowd. There were a lot of celebrity -and celebrated - professional makeup artists. Still, I didn't get the vibe that is was less friendly than New York. The Makeup Show on a whole has a more serious feel than IMATS. The Pros are about knowledge sharing and networking. Of course the brands are there to sell products but that doesn't seem to be the frenzied focus. Lots of shots are taken at Instagram trends and click bait marketing 😁These are real lovers of the craft that don't take kindly to fly-by-night 'online influencers'. That said, the brands have embraced social media and a few current marketing mediums #obvs
L.A. didn't have a Beauty Tour like the New York version but there was a Beauty Brunch on the day before the Show …
