If you saw my last post, you’ll know that I recently attended the Sephora VIB Rouge Holiday preview party. I think I was pretty restrained, but I wanted to show what I ended up picking up. Funnily enough, only one thing was from the holiday launch and the other two were from badgalriri herself. 😉
I’ll start with the only thing I got (from the holiday launches). I’ve heard a lot of good things about Tata Harper, but I’ve never really looked into their products. I gravitated to one of the skin care kits, the Glow For It kit ($83 CAD) which contains the Regenerating Cleanser, Regenerating Mask, and Repairative Moisturizer. I’m excited to take these out for a spin!
I picked up two things from the heavily hyped Fenty Beauty line from Rihanna. I was unsure if I was actually going to pick anything up but the hype got the best of me. Packaging reminds me of the H&M line actually. Lots of use of hexagons and simple packaging. It’s definitely super cute! I decided to pick up the foundation (Pro Filt’r) in shade 130 and Match Stix trio in light.
So far the foundation is great. I’ve worn it a couple of times and it’s a perfect fit for my skin type (oily combination). I got a pretty light shade, but it does darken just a bit as it dries down. When I was first hearing reviews, I heard that people were recommending getting 2 shades lighter? I don’t think you have to go that far, but maybe a shade or two lighter will do! So far it’s definitely up there with my fav foundation, Charlotte Tilbury’s Magic Foundation.
I haven’t tried the match stix yet, but I have high hopes. They remind me somewhat of the Kim K stuff which I haven’t really tried or looked into. Let’s see!
The gift bag this time around wasn’t super impressive. This was for spending over $50 which is pretty easy to do at a Sephora Rouge event! The bag seemed so…empty. I actually really like the bag it came in so I’ll keep that for sure. The bag contained:
- Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Foundation and Primer Sample
- Algenist Elevate Advanced Lift Contouring Cream
- Drunk Elephant Lala Retro Whipped Cream
- Giorgio Armani Ecstasy Shine Lipcolour
- Amore Pacific Vintage Single Extract Essence
- Too Faced Better than Sex Mascara
- Farmacy Honey Savior
Listing them all out here, there’s definitely some higher end samples in here, but I guess it just didn’t seem as ‘hearty’. Haha. I guess I should think quality over quantity.
And there’s what I picked up! Looking forward to trying it all out soon!
Thanks for reading! Have a great day!
