Sephora Haul November 2017 | Tarte, Benefit, Becca and More!

I don't usually shop at Sephora when it comes to makeup purchases. Maybe for the odd item when I'm looking to purchase something specific. But, when I received a gift card for Sephora recently, I couldn't wait to go ham!

This post is just a haul, if you'd like to see swatches or reviews for any of the items, please let me know in the comments below.

I placed 2 orders with Sephora and neither of them were during the VIB event. I could have received a discount if I had waited a few days but one of the items was on sale for half price, so I was afraid it would sell out (which it did).

I apologize for the grainy photos, I have to get my camera looked at or a replacement.

Order 1:

My first order included Tarte's Clay Play Face Shaping Palette, Becca and Chrissy Teigen's Glow Face Palette and the rest of the items were samples and a 100 point perk.

Tarte's Clay Play palette is all matte and includes 3 bronzer/ contour shades and 9 eyeshadows that can also be used as highlights.

The Becca x Chrissy Teigen glow Face Palette is stunning and I was so excited to get it! I thought it would be the perfect compliment to the all matte Tarte palette above. This contains one bronzer shade, one blush shade, and 2 highlighters. Sadly, the colours didn't work for me and spoiler they accentuated my texture and pores horribly! I returned it. 😞

Samples from this order included an It Cosmetics CC cream, Benefit Brow Powder, Bumble and Bumble Hair Oil, Clinique foundation sample, and 100 point perk: Kate Sommerville Wrinkle Warrior™ 2-in-1 Plumping Moisturizer + Serum.

Order 2:

Next up I ordered Benefit's Rockateur blush which has been on my wishlist for quite some time. I also ordered Tarte's No Shower Happy Hour box set. The bag on the left is a bag of samples (not as impressive as it looks).

I finally caved and got my Benefit Rockateur blush in the full size. Although, when I received it, I had to google it because it looked like a sample size at only 5 grams for $40! 😏 It also came cracked on the upper right-hand corner. It must be a soft blush, here's hoping it doesn't crumble apart. Now, I'm expecting some sort of miracle when I swipe this baby on!

The next item I ordered was this Tarte No Shower Happy Hour box set. It was on sale for $22 from $44. Sure enough, it did sell out, so I'm glad that I didn't wait for the VIB/ Insider sale!

The box includes deluxe sample sizes of:
  • Tarte Hair Goals Dry Shampoo
  • Tarte Queen Clean Vegan Deodorant
  • Tarteguard Tinted Moisturizer in medium
  • Tarte Amazonian Clay blush in Insightful
  • Tartiest Glossy Lip Paint (no colour stated)- spoiler, it's gorgeous!


Above is the sample bag and it's contents. I will be giving away the two lip products as I know they will be too dark for me (Sephora Rouge Cream Lipstick in "The Red" and a Tarte Lip Paint). I am most excited about the Marc Jacobs sample eyeliner, I just wish it was brown instead of black, but it was free so I'm not complaining. I'm also curious about the Too Cool For School All-In-One Egg Mellow Cream 5-in-1 Firming Moisturizer. The perfume sample is Marc Jacobs Decadence.

Some more samples included Bumble and Bumble Invisible Hair Oil, Dry Bar 100 Proof Hair Oil, Boscia Tsubaki Oil-Infused Exfoliating Powder, and a 100 point perk of First Aid Beauty's Coconut Skin Smoothie Priming Moisturizer (super excited to try this one!).

I hope you enjoyed seeing my Sephora haul! Did you take advantage of the VIB/Insider sale this year? 

Happy weekend, everyone!
