Haul: Marc Jacobs, Becca, Chanel and more!

Hello Everyone!
I went to Sephora with a good friend this morning to find her a lip color for her wedding. If you are obsessed with makeup, like myself, you know you can not go into Sephora with out leaving with a bag full of products! Should I have purchased all of this stuff? NO Did I need any of this stuff? NO but that is why I can admit openly that I am obsessed. :)

 Now before you judge me, I actually got a lot of this stuff for free! (aka because I spend to much money there and I had a lot of points).  I actually only purchased three items. I will go through the items I purchased first and give you my first impression!

P.S. This may be a long post :)



1. Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed


Okay this product I actually did "need" for my pro kit. I have a really beautiful highlight with a pink undertone but I really wanted to have a highlighter with a gold undertone for my medium to dark skin toned women. This product screamed buy me. It was beautiful in the package and I knew I had to swatch it.

It is so pigmented and it is exactly the color I was looking for! My first impression is that it is beautiful!
A lot will go a long way.

Price: $38.00 (yes I know it is very pricey)
Purchase Here


2. Marc Jacobs Highliner Gel Crayon in "Ro (cocoa)"


I was not in the market for a new brown eye liner but I swatched this in the store and then a few minutes later I was trying to wipe it off with makeup remover and it would not come off.. Which means the staying power had to be incredible and that I needed it.


 If this liner is as incredible as my first impression, I will buy the rest of them for my pro kit. I believe there are 6 shades. It is so creamy and easy to apply.

Price: $25.00
Purchase Here


3. Cover FX Mattifying Primer with Anti-Acne Treatment

I have heard wonderful things about this Cover FX mattifying primer. I keep a lot of primers in my pro kit but I did not have a mattifying one yet. I thought that anti-acne treatment was a nice bonus as well.



 I used this on one of my friends when I was doing her makeup and she said it had a slight burning sensation. I will have to try this for a few weeks before I use it on anyone else to make sure it isn't to uncomfortable.

Price: $38.00 (pretty pricey for a primer)

The next items I got as gifts. :)

1.Bobbi Beauty to Go:
Sephora has a beauty insider card that you can gain points by shopping! I always save my points until they have something awesome. I used 500 points on a Tarte "best of the brand" gift a couple of months ago. After checking out today I had about 700 more points and I cashed 500 of them in for this amazing set! I love Bobbi Brown and this mini palette may be the cutest thing I have ever seen..

I wore this palette today and it was just as amazing as it looks. The eye shadow is very pigmented and I love the unique neutral shades. I also love the blush. It is a really pretty flushed color on my fair skin. This palette is about the size of a credit card. It will be more than perfect for traveling. LOVE IT.

I used the Mascara today and it seemed fairly lousy but I hate giving first impressions on mascara so I am going to keep using it and give you all a legit review!

I am very excited to try this eye cream. I have been on the market for a new eye cream and this fell into my lap at the perfect time! I will do a review on this as well :)


2. VIB Rouge 

Okay so I do not know all of the details about being a VIB Rouge member but I do know that I got this amazing lipstick that is exclusive to VIB Rouge members. It is a beautiful deep red.

I am a big fan of Bite lip products and I have a feeling this will be no different but again, I will do a separate review after I use this product a bunch.


3.Real Birthday Turn On's
September is my birthday month and so they gave me this cute little birthday gift! I love benefit cosmetics. This kit includes a "they're real" mascara and a "whats up" highlighter. I already know I love this mascara but I am very excited about this highlighter!
Isn't it funny to buy a product and then they give you one free? This seems so similar to the Becca cosmetics highlighter that I purchased. Oh well! I will keep this one and put the other in my pro kit!!


3. Chanel Mademoiselle Perfume
Okay so this was a very unexpected gift. I had my eye on this at the Chanel counter and I fell in love with the scent instantly. I took a picture in hopes that I could get if for my birthday from my parents or boyfriend or something. As we finished shopping, my friend and I got to the car and she surprised me with it. I was shocked!!! I still can't believe she bought this for me as a "thank you"/ early birthday present. I am so so so thankful for this incredible gift. This product makes me feel so pretty. Do you have a makeup product or any other beauty product that makes you feel so wonderful?? This is it for me right now :)


I know this was the worlds longest blog post and I apologize  :)

I am very excited about all of my new products and super excited to review them all for you guys!!




I hope this was helpful :)
