Hey everyone! Today I have a Sephora haul! They had a really nice promotion recently for Mother’s Day – starting 04/24-05/01, if you purchased a $100.00 e-gift card, you would get a free $20.00 bonus gift card! That’s a pretty decent savings for a “gift card” purchase, so I decided to take advantage of the deal. Hey, I’m a mother too, right?

+ NARS Danger Control Eyeshadow Palette, $49.00.
This is no longer carried at Sephora as it was limited edition, but Barney’s still has it, so that’s what is linked above.
I bought this on sale for $24.50 and it is sooo worth that cost. It’s a smaller palette, slightly smaller than my iPhone X, but it’s got a lot of pros. First of all, I love that it’s so travel friendly. The packaging is sturdy (and gorgeous), it comes with a large mirror, and all six eyeshadow shades are very wearable colors.
The shades included are: Rave, Elektra, Aeryn Sun, Bionic, Haedus and Tonic. These are all shimmer and are absolutely stunning. I’m super happy with this, and if you can snatch it up, I definitely recommend it!
+ Urban Decay Distortion Eyeshadow Palette, $48.00 (on sale for $24.00).
Urban Decay eyeshadow palettes are seriously my favorites. I collect these things. I have an entire drawer in one of my Ikea Alex 9-drawers containing nothing but Urban Decay palettes. When I find one on sale, especially for half off, I cannot resist it.
This palette has a lot of really great shades. I love Rogue, Hot Box and Territorial. This palette has a large mirror as well, amazing packaging. It’s just so pretty to look at! I’m so happy to add this to my collection. If you’ve never tried Urban Decay eyeshadows, I strongly recommend them. If you have, I strongly recommend this palette while it’s still available. It’s got a great range of shades.
+ Anastasia Beverly Hills Aurora Glow Kit, $40.00 (on sale now for $20.00).
I’ve had my eye on this palette for so long. I just couldn’t justify spending $40 on it when I have soooo many highlighters already. But, for $20.00? I can justify this until the cows come home. The pans are huge and this provides such a nice range of shades. I love how this has more wearable highlighter shades, but it also includes a couple of fun ones like Orion, which would be perfect for a more party scene or a festival. I can’t wait to play around with these and test out all the gorgeous colors!
+ Anastasia Beverly Hills Prism Eye Shadow Palette, $42.00 (on sale now for $31.50).
I am seriously so late to this bandwagon. I’ve been hearing about this palette foreeever. I had to grab it while it was on sale. I do completely understand why this palette is such a fan favorite. The outside packaging is velvet, which I don’t love because velvet tends to get super dirty incredibly quickly, but the inside of the palette. Ohhh, man. It comes with 14 of the most beautiful eyeshadows that I have ever seen and a really nice double-ended brush. The shadows range from shimmer to matte and are so pigmented and buttery. This is definitely a staple for an Anastasia Beverly Hills fan!
+ Bite Beauty Champagne Discovery Set, $35.00 (on sale now for $29.00).
This set is a really nice value, especially since it’s on sale right now. This includes three items:
+ Bite Beauty Lip Pencil in 036 Rose Taupe, $18.00.
+ Bite Beauty Multistick in Cashew, $24.00.
+ Bite Beauty Prismatic Pearl Creme Lip Gloss in Champagne Pearl, $22.00.
This set would retail for $64.00 if you purchased each item separately. For $35.00, that’s a a great value. For $29.00, that’s an amazing value.
Bite Beauty makes a ton of really gorgeous lip products, and this lip set is way up to par. Gorgeous corresponding colors, amazing and hydrating formulas. I have a crazy obsession with lippies, and these are great, versatile colors to add to my collection.
With online purchases over $25/$35, normally there is are codes available to get a deluxe sample for free. I was able to use a code this time to get this Bite Beauty Prismatic Pearl Multistick in Rose Pearl for free!
This little baby lipstick has a value of $10.50 based on its size. This is a gorgeous shade, described as a metallic rose with green and violet shimmer. I think this is a stunning shade and I love having these little mini lipsticks to throw into my purse.
I also decided to redeem a couple of 100 point perks. I chose the Clinique Take The Day Off Makeup Remover for Lids, Lashes & Lips (1 FL OZ) and Elizabeth And James Nirvana French Grey Rollerball (0.10 FL OZ). I’ve used the makeup remover several times before and it’s a really nice one that’s a cool little travel size to get. Elizabeth and James perfumes are some of the best smelling stuff out there, and this lil cutie rollerball smells incredible. This size is also really nice to throw in my purse.
And with every order with Sephora, you get to pick out 3 free samples. I chose the Dior Diorshow Mascara, the Kevin Aucoin Etherealist Super Natural Concealer which came in three colors: Light EC 02, Medium EC 05, and Deep EC 08, and the Sephora Collection 10HR Wear Perfection Foundation, which came in three shades as well: 2. Light Ivory, 25 Medium Beige, 33 Medium Walnut.
I’m pretty happy with my haul. I got lucky that the gift card promo coincided with a lot of really good products on sale. I love it when that happens! I can’t wait to really dig into these products, but so far we are doing good with them!
