Mini Sephora Haul

January 16, 2015

I've stuck to strictly outfit posts on this blog so here's to trying something different for 2015. I received a gift card for J.C. Penny from my grandmother for Christmas and decided I was going to spend it in a store that also has a Sephora! I've been in a Sephora, but never purchased anything from them before. I'm far from a beauty guru and stick to drug store products, so I was pretty lost and asked for help from a super friendly associate named Dawn. I had a $50 gift card, as well as $12 leftover in merchandise credit, so here is what I got!

NARS concealer in Chantilly, $29

 Dawn helped me find the right shade I was looking for and applied "Chantilly" and "Vanilla" to each side of my face to compare. I chose the Chantilly because I wanted a more highlighted look and it was a little lighter than the Vanilla. It was pricier than I anticipated on spending, but I figured it would be a good investment.

Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in Trooper, $18

I actually forgot I wanted to try this product until Dawn mentioned it when I asked for a similar felt pen to the Sephora brand. I even had it on my Amazon wishlist. Duh, Sheila! I've heard good things about it and Dawn also raved about it, as well as was wearing it too! I've been using a liquid liner with an inkwell and it's been so hard to get the hang of, so I definitely wanted to get a new liner in a pen style. I wore it yesterday and am in love! Super easy and quick to apply and I didn't have to fix any mistakes! I have normal to dry skin and it hasn't smudged either. I have a feeling this liner is going to change my life, lol.

Anastasia Dipbrow Pomade in Ebony, $18

I've heard good things about this product as well. I went with the Ebony shade because it's the closet dark brown to a black, without actually being black. I'm all about a two in one product so it's awesome that this is a powder and a gel. Reviews stress that a little goes a long way and I definitely agree! I tried it out yesterday and it's definitely going to take a few tries to get the hang of. Also, I thought about reapplying my nail polish to take these photos, but I just don't care! :)

Have you tried any of these products? What products have you been loving recently or would recommend?

Add me on TWITTER! I need some more blogger friends on there!


  1. I love your blog :)
    Following your blog now, hope you'll follow too :)

  2. I LOVE Nars!! I haven't tried their concealers yet, but would love to! I hear Kat Von D eyeliners work really well too!

  3. I love the Kat Von D products in general - her foundation and eyeshadows I've used, but never the liner. I'm going to have to give it a whirl! That Dipbrow pomade looks intriguing too.

  4. Amazing picks!! The NARS concealer is amazing and this eyeliner <3

    Kisses, Kali

  5. How nice!
    I follow you, if you like to reciprocate this is my blog: a big kiss and good weekend!

  6. Nars is such a cool brand <3 Love all their products!

  7. I've been wanting to try that NARS concealer, but every time I tried to find my shade it was sold out! I'll have to check again now that the Christmas shopping season is over. That eyeliner sounds great, too. I love my liquid liner but some days I just cannot seriously be bothered 'battling' with it and all the ways it can go wrong...!

  8. Hmmm, I suck at liquid eyeliner so this Tattoo one sounds like something I can definitely find useful! :D I'm currently obsessed with Sephora's book case eye shadows. They were limited edition for Christmas and I gave one as a present for my sis. ^_^ She did a review on her bloggy, you can check it out if you like:
