A (Late) Sephora VIB Haul

Just a small one.

I was in Korea when I placed my order, so I didn’t go too crazy because I was hoarding all I could hoard over there. The transit time to Manila is also kinda long, so this post is coming to you pretty late.

Sephora VIB Haul - 1

Simple Human Mini Sensor Mirror
This is kind of a big ticket item but I’d been hankering for a round mirror with a light for over a year now, and I asked Sarie for this for Christmas… and I guess I opened it early! It runs on a USB charge (which means no batteries) and magnifies 10x. It also folds in on itself and has a case that’s nifty for traveling.

Bite Beauty Luminous Creme Lipstick in Cava
Omg this is the best color I’ve ever laid my eyes on. It looks so gross and corpse-like, but it’s really unlike any other lip color I have. So good. This fills my weird desire to get OCC’s Sebastian, which is much more unconventional. Cava is much more wearable, like a greyed out beige-y mauve and I am in love.

Sephora VIB Haul - 2

Bite Beauty Best Bite Remix
Best set ever! This comes with 4 mini sizes of their High Pigment Lip Pencils in a pretty tin… for $25. I got one of these for a giveaway, so stay tuned for that. 🙂 Very tempted to keep it for myself, though, haha.

Marc Jacobs The Sky-Liner Petites Highliner Collection
I swatched these pencils every time we entered a Sephora back in September, and I took the plunge because of Sabrina of The Beauty Lookbook’s review and also because of the 20% off. I haven’t played around with it much, however, but I’ve got high hopes. It’s out of stock at Sephora, but it’s still available on Marc Jacobs Beauty.

So, yes. That was my somewhat meager haul. I kind of regret not getting more because, hello 20%, and also, for some reason, Sephora refuses to let me check my cart out.

Sometimes, I really am very thankful that I don’t live in a place that has a Sephora. Imagine what it would do to my bank account!

Did you pick up anything awesome from the VIB sale? 🙂

    • Hey! Nope, I shipped it to a US address. 🙂 When I ordered during Black Friday, my order wouldn’t go through, though.

      • What isn’t!! 😉 No Hourglass, no Nars, no Bite, no Laura Mercier, no Smashbox, no Kat von D, no Tarte, no Tom Ford… so basically it’s easier to list what we do have, your basic Chanel, YSL, Guerlain, Clarins, Clinique and such.

  1. Noodles says

    Oh! Love the look of Cava! Can’t wait to see it on you! Second the ‘relief’ of not having access to Sephora…I’d be camping in there.

    • LOL, I’d be like “IT’S ME AGAIN.” Hehe. I’m trying to see what kinda eye looks Cava looks best with! ‘Tis a tricky color.

  2. I ended up skipping the Bite set even though it looks amazing, as I’m not that big on red and I heard the lightest shade washes some people out (which means it’ll most probably wash me out as well). I did lay my hands on Bite Quince. Just finished photographing it. Let the playtime begin 🙂

  3. Ooh, I have the Marc Jacobs Highliner in Blacquer and I love it! Now I want that Sky-Liner collection -_- And no to Sephora coming here please haha

  4. You know, I’ve been hearing news that Sephora will be opening in the Philippines sometime next year…

    …not sure if I actually want that to happen or not. HAHAHA.

  5. Ugh, LOVE this haul!!! I haven’t received mine yet. Baka next year na dumating lol 😦 I’ve always wanted that mirror but couldn’t bring myself to actually purchase it, and yay for Bite Beauty lippies! ❤

    • Hee, can’t wait for you to get your haul. 🙂 I have a love/hate with the mirror! More love, though. 🙂

  6. Oh, girl! I went a *little* crazy during the VIB sale and I ended up placing 3 separate orders(!) Yeesh! I’m intrigued by the mirror now I must look it up. I’d be interested in seeing a review of it (hint hint)
