Sephora Fall 2018 Friends and Family Sale Haul

If you're not checking out my Scopes you don't know that that's where the haulage goes down. I'm only sharing this haul here in case you were looking for more recommendations for the Fall VIB Sale.

Laneige Kiss and Make Up Set - $28USD
Yuh know how I feel about value sets. This one is worth it since it contains a full size of the well loved original Lip Sleeping Mask that retails for $20USD. There is 20 grams of product in that; that's a lot of lip mask! I only want to try the new scents. *aka check out The Marketplace*

Drunk Elephant Out of Office - $25USD
Another kit I purchased for the lip product. The Lippe Balm is full sized and retails for $18USD. The trial size of the Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil is smaller than what came in the D.E All Glowy kit but it's still handy for travel. D-Bronzi is a relatively new release...stay tuned for a review.

Fenty Beauty Stunna Lip Paint 'Uncuffed' - $24USD

Would you believe that I haven't tried the original …

If you'd like to see my recommendation for new releases let me know. For now let's cast our minds back to November 2016 and see if I got any of the products that I was lusting after.
Sunday Riley #SquadGoals Skincare Essentials Kit
Definitely copped that. I still haven't tried Tidal or Ceramic Slip (which has since been reformulated) but I was happy to have this just for another Good Genes.

Shiseido Facial Cotton (165 sheets)
They carried up the price by 50¢ and we still buying dem.
L’Occitane Deliciously Addictive Almond
I didn't buy this set but I do have full sizes of the Shower Oil and the Supple Skin Oil.

Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare C + Collagen Perfect Skin Set & Refresh Mist
Copped that too; still haven't done the comparison post 😒

Ardency Inn Best of Eyes Set 
Sephora doesn't even sell Ardency Inn anymore; neither does Beautylish 😢 The …

As Good as Gold? Peter Thomas Roth 24K Gold Mask Pure Luxury Lift and Firm Mask Review

I wanted to love it but…
Like a child on Christmas Day, my eyes lit up when I saw the sample of Peter Thomas Roth 24K Gold Mask Pure Luxury Lift & Firm Mask. I had been eyeing this brand for a while, and therefore jumped at the chance to do a review when Lucinda suggested it… I mean after all, who wouldn’t want to put 24K Gold on their face!?!

The company’s website really added to the hype:
"The ultimate luxurious anti-aging treatment, this rich mask is infused with Pure 24K Gold and Colloidal Gold to help improve the appearance of firmness and impart an opulent glow. Known from the time of Cleopatra to have powerful anti-aging benefits, 24K Gold helps firm, lift, brighten and calm the appearance of skin. Caffeine helps skin appear firmer and tighter while Peridot, an exquisite gemstone rich in magnesium, re-energizes and helps reduce the look of aging and stress. Hyaluronic Acid and Glycerin deliver intense hydration for a more lifted appearance. This lavish, pampering treatme…

Disappointing Products

If you need a disclaimer for this kind of post check it out here.
First Aid Beauty Eye Duty Triple Remedy - $36USD
This only on this list because of the shade. They really need to expand this range. From what I could gather though, a little product goes a long way and of course, any device that increases blood circulation is good thing. This full size came in a value set; I wouldn't have bought this on it's own. 

Colleen Rothschild Vitamin C Treatment Complex - $65USD
I know I'm picking on Ms. Colleen here but they're actually a few Vitamin C serums and me that ain't adding up. Used alone they cause milia; those tiny bumps with the white heads. Any skincare that doesn't work on my face I use on less delicate areas of my body ain't tuh waste. Somewhere I read about mixing Vitamin C serums with a moisturizer or a retinol. I should try that.

Ingredients: "Aqua (Water), Glycerin, Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate (Vitamin C), Hydroxyethyl Acrylate/Sod…
