Sephora VIB Sale Haul!

Hi, everyone! Hope you're all having a fantastic weekend! Like many beauty fiends out there, I melt when Sephora has a sale. In preparation for this year's VIB Sale, I stalked my top picks from the store, some of which were brand new holiday products, others which had been on my radar for months. I was able to whittle down my wishlist to a semi-reasonable edit, and this is the result! 


Too Faced Natural Natural Eye Neutral Eye Shadow Collection
I've been obsessed with this palette for ages! No, I absolutely do not need another neutral palette, but each and every shade in this lineup looks completely stunning. And some seem completely undupe-able. Couldn't help but pull the trigger! 

Clinique A Black Honey Affair Eye Shadow Palette
I love that Clinique is resurrecting their Black Honey range- so beautifully 90s, but with a totally modern feel! This palette offers a killer selection of warm neutrals and cooler violets. A unique and beautiful combination!

NARS Audacious Lipstick in Grace
I've tested this at Sephora a few times and on each occasion I had the thought "this is the most gorgeous lipstick shade I could imagine!" It's a gorgeous bright coral-tinged pink that's incredibly rich and totally flattering. So happy to have it in my collection!


NudeStix Lip + Cheek Pencil in Mystic
I'd been dying to give this brand a go and was so excited to spot it in-store last month! This multi-purpose pencil is the most lovely, warm shade of caramel. I think it will be beautiful both as a blush and as a lip colour. And perfect for Fall!

NudeStix Magnetic Eye Colour in Spirit
I've heard that these creamy eye pencils offer killer long-wearing metallic colour. I opted for Spirit, an eye-catching plum-tinged bronze. I don't have anything quite like it in my collection. 

NARS Digital World Lip Pencil Coffret
Truly the icing on the cake, this is one showstopping holiday set. It features an amazing selection of NARS' Velvet Matte and Satin Lip Pencils. The shades range from soft peach to super hot pink. Each is so up my alley and the packaging of this set is to die for! 


So there you have it! I am super thrilled with all of my selections and can't wait to delve in! I actually danced around like a total freak when the package arrived ;)

I did pick up a couple of other goodies during the sale, but had the willpower to hand them over to my parents as Christmas gifts. A true exercise in delayed gratification! I also snagged a gift for my Canadian Beauty Bloggers Network Secret Santa gift- hope she loves it :)

Did you pick up anything during the Sephora VIB Sale?

Thanks for stopping by! xo

  3. I gotta admit, grace is stunning and it's been catching my attention lately! Let me know what you think of it! Also, I loooooooooved the natural eye palette! I had the old one back in the day and hit pan on every shade (something I can't say often!). Also, they look dupable, but trust me it's hard to find dupes!

  13. I really can't justify updating my TooFaced Natural Eye Palette especially when I haven't hit pan on a single one -- but I can totally justify a cream shadow from nudestix....right?

  14. Wow, stunning products. *__*
    Have a nice week...

  15. I really like the NUDESTIX, I am excited to hear what you think of them. I am not a Sephora VIB, what does one have to do to become one?

    1. I can't wait to try them out! For a VIB, you have to have a Sephora Beauty Insider card and spend $350 or more in a year. Whoops! ;)

  16. The Nars coffret sounds/looks like a dream come true!! Such gorgeous shades! Also, how do you become a Sephora VIB?
