In this post, I’ll share my mini Sephora haul from February. I post my Play! by Sephora unboxing and reviews, too, so you might want to check that out as well.
Mini Sephora Haul
As you will see in the video above, the Stila Shimmer and Shine and the Natasha Denona palette are very pigmented. I’ll share more of my thoughts below.
Natasha Denona Mini Star Palette
A mini eyeshadow palette, inspired by the Star Eyeshadow Palette. Natasha Denona is known for her long-lasting eyeshadows with high percentages of pigments. This Sephora exclusive is infused with real crushed pearls.
Amount: 5 eyeshadows (0.029 oz / 0.8 g each)
Final thoughts: This palette is very pigmented and it feels luxurious in comparison to some drugstore palettes. I am on the hunt for a good neutral to a warm-toned palette that I can use daily. My goal is to find something that is easy to use and works well on my skin tone and this is a real contender. I need to play around with it a bit more, but I like it so far.
Stila Cosmetics Shimmer & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow
A liquid eyeshadow that is long-wearing and has a rich color with high shimmer.
Amount: 0.153 oz
Final thoughts: I first tried this formula in a package from Influenster, where I got it in the color Cloud, a shimmering lavender with gold pearl. I love everything about it, especially that it is light-weight. I wanted more colors and this one I bought is exactly the shade I like to use: a bright golden, champagne shimmer.
My intention was to find a color and shimmer formula that can be my tried and true, something I can depend on when I want that pop of shine. I have plenty of shimmery eyeshadows, but none are exactly the colors and tones that I want, this one is. I need to play around with it a bit more but I love it so far.
The texture is smooth and creamy, the color is bright and pigmented, and the wear has been long and crease-proof.
Sephora Collection Gloss Balm in 07 You Fancy
A high-shine gloss with the texture of a lip balm. You can think of this non-sticky formula as a tinted lip balm with the shine of a gloss.
Amount: 0.32 oz / 9.5 ml
Final thoughts: I like it, but to be honest, the only reason why I bought it was to meet the $50 threshold for free shipping. The total for the two eyeshadows abover came to $49 so I needed to spend just one more dollar. Instead of paying $5.95 for shipping, I went to the sale section of the site and bought this for $5. I like moisturizing lip products, especially those with a balmy feeling. I actually am happy with this and think its a great shade to wear during spring and summer.
Free Samples From Sephora
They didn’t sent me the two foundation samples I requested, but rather the skincare products I show below, which is kind of a bummer cause I’m on the hunt for my perfect foundation.
I forgot to take pictures of the Fenty Beauty by Rihanna Pro Filtr Foundation sample that I did get with a promo code.
I have a box filled with samples like this and I use them for travel or when I just want to try something new. Here’s what I got:
Clinique ID Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion +
This kinda confuses me, and to be honest, why I haven’t tried it yet.
Sephora Collection Cleansing Cream in Rose
I like having cleanser samples for traveling. This one is going into the box.
This is what I spent:
$25 :: Natasha Denona Mini Star Palette
$24 :: Stila Shimmer & Glow Eyeshadow
$5 :: Sephora Collections Colorful Gloss Balm
$59.14 order total including tax and free shipping.
Have you tried any of these products? I’d love to know what you think of my Sephora haul in the comments below.
