Sephora VIB Haul Holiday 2015

This year's damage wasn't not nearly as bad as last year. Not even close. That's mainly because I've already done quite a few Sephora hauls recently. Initially to document that process for this forum - customs duties and all; and then, well yuh know how it goes. To stay up to date on the monthly hauls check out my Keek profile. Imagine no one cares about Keek but Snapchat blew up. Ain't social media weird?

This year the discount was 20% off within a limited time frame. VIB Rouge was limited to one weekend, which made absolutely no sense to me but I ain't at that level so I wasn't worried. I knew I wanted one item for sure but a few others kinda snuck in.

The Laura Mercier Blush & Glow Radiant Face Trio was on my radar from the very first time I saw the promo images. I even posted them on our Facebook page. I'll be talking about that brand's Holiday Sets in the next post so I'll leave that breakdown for then.

I'm just about out of my Truth Serum deluxe sized sample and figured this Ole Henriksen Merry & Bright Duo was the perfect opportunity to get another one. As I said in this post, I'm really liking the texture and finish of this product so I've decided to keep it in rotation.

And the 'has she lost her $%^&*!+' mind purchase...

#RougeLouboutin

I swear, this wasn't on my radar for this sale. Sharalee and I had even recently discussed how insane it would be to purchase these 'sight unseen'. For that kinda money it's best to swatch first. Pun top of all of that these tings stay out of stock! Just my dumb luck I suppose...

I decided to stick to a nude colour since I'd get the most use of that type of shade.

I still ain't even swatch it yet.

I also cashed in 250 points for this cute Tory Burch perfume sample.


So cute!

The 20% saved me $34.40USD before tax. Customs fees totalled $127.26BDS (VAT inclusive) and Laparkan's were $47.21BDS (VAT Inclusive).

A low buy is so in order for next year....bruh!

M.A.C Shiny Pretty Things Haul

In the most tardy local M.A.C Holiday release ever, Shiny Pretty Things was made available when the new store finally opened in The Colonnade Mall on December 3rd.


From YouTube chatter, it seemed like the eyeshadow singles and the Extra Dimension Skinfinish 'Snowflushed' were the hot ticket items. 'Snowflushed' is supposedly a big pan of 'Stylishly Merry'. To me, those thing were definitely mesmerizing to look at but the lip glasses were the unexpected stunners.


At this point, M.A.C items in limited edition packaging are collector's pieces. Right? Right. I was more looking at what would make great gifts.

T - B: 'Scarcely Seen', 'Rosebuddy' and 'Caketop'
Of course I had to get a bullet lipstick...

Matte Metallic 'Straight Fire'
The matte bright fuchsia 'Both Cheeks' looked gorgeous too but we all know I barely wear pink lipstick.


Just like the Nutcracker Sweet Collection they also released sets of minis. They claim these…

Indie Lee Brightening Cleanser

Usually I do these cleanser reviews when I've used the product for a while. Typically a little before half the product is gone. Well...
