Just a quick post today to share my most recent Sephora loot with you.
The good news is that I barely dropped any big money on this haul because-:
a) Some of it was won. I won some Sephora vouchers thanks to a giveaway on the blog, StreetLove . Thanks, Fiona!
b) Some products were received FREE as part of the generous perks of being a Sephora Member.
c) Other items were heavily discounted as a result of a voucher I scanned during the Sephora Black Card launch promotions
The first batch of these to town sold like hotcakes. It took some months before we saw them back on the shelf again.
Melted is an innovative hybrid of the lipstick, lip cream and gloss and is a truly juicy addition to the lip product family. We didn’t get the full range of Melted shades here in Malaysia but it’s good enough just to have access to half of them.
Vibrant and delicious long-wear hues that go on like a dream. Picked up this in Fuchsia because I am so tired of red-red. The itch is there to get a couple more now.
It took me way too long to discover NYX and I wonder why! It’s so d*mn cheap and good quality for the price. Cheaper than Maybelline at some price points. I’ve always stayed clear from the NYX rack because it’s always crawling with shoppers. Now, I finally understand why!
I’m not a huge fan of the NYX eye shadows or palettes because they’re a bit hit-and-miss in pay-off and am not inspired by their packaging but these lipsticks are more than worth it.
RM19 each. Probably even cheaper if you’re US-based and a steal and a half for this level of colour payoff.
I know their lip creams are always selling out too and at RM26 each, I’m not surprised.
You’ll be seeing more of NYX in the future on this blog. Outta my way, people!
I only paid for one thing in this next lot and that was the loose powder. Sephora are really clever at strategic product placement and they have all these lovely little deluxe-sized beauty goodies near their registers that are ripe for the picking. I’d advise you to be careful you aren’t picking up something you don’t need as you wait. The temptation is all too real.
I’m regretting a little that I didn’t opt for the full-sized Tarte pressed compact of this instead of my impulsive loose powder buy.
The rest of this Tarte loot was all FREE and made up the gifts I received as part of the Sephora Black Card promo and for attending a Tarte Consumer Workshop at their KLCC branch. I love the perks of being a Sephora member!
I tried this at the store to remove my chipped polish and was converted. The one on the left is to remove regular polish and the other one is to remove glitter polish from the fingernails. I’m sure it’s possible to make your own beauty hack for this with a little jar and some dish sponges/ scrubs but what can I say, I’m lazy.
This duo was 35% Off thanks to a special voucher I scanned from a promotional wobbler on the shelves during the Black Card Sale. So worth the trouble! I’d also like to thank the lovely and gorgeous Liz at Sephora Starhill again for helping me with this because I am the only person in the free world who doesn’t know how to scan a QR Code.
Reviews are forthcoming…if any of you want.
