Quarantine Beauty Haul | Sephora sent me my order twice?

The world is strange right now. We’re all under quarantine, false information about Covid-19 is everywhere, I can’t order a pizza past 8pm and I’m buying things online that I would normally just walk over to the store for.

Most of us have stopped wearing makeup altogether during this time, but I am thankfully still employed in an industry that is considered a necessity so I get to go to work everyday. Thus, makeup is still happening and being tested.

So here’s a little distraction for the next five minutes, starting with some new drugstore makeup I ordered from Shoppers. They were offering free shipping no minimum so I took advantage of that to stock up on some things I.. “needed”? No one needs makeup… I know, I know. I feel weird about it too.

Physician's Formula Weylie Hoang Palette

Physician’s Formula Weylie Hoang Face Palette

The first thing that I picked up was the Physician’s Formula x Weylie Hoang face palette. You guys have been telling me to try the PF butter bronzers forever and I finally decided to go for it.

I reviewed the Sultry Nights Palette from Physicians Formula in 2018 and I remember that I actually hated it… the shimmers were terrible! But I remember that the mattes were very smooth & pigmented, so I thought if the bronzers were anything like the mattes in that palette I would probably like them.

Physician's Formula Weylie Hoang Palette Review

I was on the fence about whether to get this face palette or not, mostly because my skin is so pale and the bronzer shades in here are deeper than I usually go for. Someone pointed out on YouTube that the bronzer shades have the same names as the ones in the regular collection but they’re a little bit different in tone. I’m going to review this palette separately, but spoiler alert — I LOVE IT.

Maybelline Fit Me Hydrate & Smooth Foundation

Maybelline Fit Me Hydrate & Smooth Foundation

This is one of the first foundations I reviewed on my blog! I really love the Hydrate & Smooth version of the Maybeline Fit Me foundation. I haven’t tried the matte & poreless version, I know myself and the Dewy finish is what I like. Matte finishes make me look old xD

I might revisit my old review because it’s been a few years since I wrote it, and I’d love to update my photography!

Catrice Dewy Glow Fixing Spray

Catrice Dewy Glow Fixing Spray

Taylor Wynn raved about this Catrice Fixing Spray in a recent video, which inspired this purchase. I usually go for my Pixi Makeup Fixing Mist or the Nyx Dewy Setting Mist, but I love trying out new things!

A few weeks ago I reviewed the new Catrice Self Made Bae Palette, and I was cringing when I hit publish. I really, really disliked that palette, and it was sent to me in PR so I felt kind of bad for raking it over the coals. But I’m glad I gave this mist a chance despite that bad experience, because I actually like this mist a lot! I’ve been using it for about a week now and it adds a beautiful glow to your makeup. If you like a dewy look I think you’d really like this Catrice mist!

Duo Lash Glue

 Duo Lash Glue

This was the product that was the real “necessity” for me. My House of Lashes glue is almost empty and I have like… four eyeshadow palette reviews to get up for you guys! I went ahead and chucked my AOA lash glue. A few weeks ago I wrote a blog post about all the Shop Miss A Products I’ve been trying and their Faux Mink Lashes are pretty good, but the black lash glue was absolutely terrible.

I remember Nova recommended Duo Lash Glue to me eons ago, so I’m finally getting around to trying it. So far so good!

Sephora Collection Coconut Makeup Wipes & Hipster Lashes

Sephora Sent me my order twice?

I never intended to share my Sephora goodies on my blog because I literally spent $11.50 with a free shipping code so I could redeem some points. I only ordered two small packs of the Sephora Collection Coconut Makeup Wipes, plus a pair of lashes that were on sale.

Apparently there was a mixup because I placed my order and not one but TWO boxes showed up.

Both boxes had the same packing slip. The second box contained doubles of the points rewards I ordered, plus a Tom Ford lipstick book sample, Summer Friday sample, AND a full sized Fenty Brow Pencil (what?) PLUS two other 300 point rewards that I definitely didn’t order. I think my order somehow started getting packaged twice and was then mixed up with someone else’s? WEIRD!

 

Tatcha Routine Refresher

Tatcha Routine Refresher

I redeemed 300 points for this little Tatcha Duo containing the Tatcha Water Gel cream and The Deep Cleanse exfoliating cleanser. Two arrived! Um, ok!? I’m planning a little post wrapping up my experiences with Tatcha because I also got to try their Dewy Skin Cream in my March Ipsy Glam Bag, and I got their luminous skin mist as a deluxe sample with a Sephora order last month.

Wander Beauty Eye Masks

Wander Beauty Baggage Eye Masks

These Wander Beauty eye masks are amazing. I got a full pack from the Fall Fabfitfun Box at the end of 2019 and I’ve gone through the entire pack. I got doubles of my points redemption here – one in each box. Score! These are great for depuffing your under eye area. They don’t slip around on your face like some of the hydrogel masks out there.

Both boxes contained the Summer Fridays Jet Lag Mask samples that I chose. I’m really excited to try these because there is SO much hype around Summer Friday on instagram. I wonder if it’s all hype because of the beautiful packaging, or if there’s something to these masks.

Belif the true cream & Aqua Bomb

Belif Sample Set

I received some deluxe minis of the Belief True Cream moisturizer and their Aqua Bomb Jelly Cleanser. I have sooo many mini cleansers on the go right now, so it will be a while before I get around to trying these. Once I do I’ll post an instagram update on how they worked for me.

Kerastase Nectar Thermique & Tom Ford Lipstick book

Kerastase Nectar Thermique Leave In Treatment

I got to try some Kerastase hair products when I was on the Elle Canada Grand Prix panel a few years ago. And I hated them. The products smelled like mosquito spray, and I couldn’t have my hair smelling like that all day!

I haven’t opened this deluxe sample yet, but my fingers are crossed that it won’t smell like bug spray.

Tom Ford Lipstick Book

I’m actually kind of impressed by how luxe this sample lipstick book is. It even comes with a little brush! I didn’t choose this, it arrived in the second box. The sample that I chose was the Versace Eros Flame Perfume. Now that I have it I wonder if it was supposed to be a Men’s cologne because it smells like Axe Body Spray. Both my husband & I cringed when we smelled it. No thank you!

Fenty Beauty Brow MVP Pencil

Fenty Beauty Brow MVP Pencil

Okay so this surprised me. I could see how a mix up with the deluxe samples/points redemption could happen but a Fenty brow pencil that I didn’t order? Now this is random. Luckily this is a shade that will work for me. The toothbrush bristles on the end of the pencil are a little weird. I’ll try it, but I think a traditional spoolie is more for me.

    omg i like weylie, i’m actually subbed to her YT i love her vids 🙂 that face palette is so pretty but too bad i don’t reach for my face palettes that often 🙁
    that maybelline foundation was one of the first liquid ones i tried, i liked it, i think i might have gotten the matte one though so it was only good during the summer, afterward i stopped using it and switched to mostly CF brands.. lol i wish i would have tried the dewy one instead
    every time i see catrice makeup on ulta, i always look over it because idk, it looks a bit cheap to me? like nothing catches my eye as much, but i am trying to not* be so judgemental over it because there are other brands that are just an inexpensive and are actually really great? LOL i’m glad you like that spray though
    omg all those sephora goodies look so so good, it’s too bad i don’t shop there often, idon’t think i could rack up that many points LOL

      I’m a recent subscriber too, after trying her palette! That’s too bad, I think I reach for face palettes more than singles! But you really have to love every shade in the palette for it to be worth it.
      I love this foundation, aside from the shade range. I wish there was a little more variety.
      They don’t have the most luxurious packaging, but that’s probably how they keep prices down. I’m still trying to figure them out, I don’t have much of an opinion having only tried two things!
      It’s kind of alarming how many points I’ve earned isn’t it? But I almost never redeem them so they’ve added up over about three years.

      • May 1, 2020 / 12:33 pm

        that’s true too, i’ve always had bad luck with face palettes in the sense that some shades do not suit my complexion or i don’t like the finish LOL i think i tend to be more picky with face makeup than eyeshadow
        eventually i will give them a shot but at the moment i don’t feel like i need anything that they offer.

        • May 11, 2020 / 9:47 pm

          There’s always that one shade that is a little weird in a face palette. I hope you find something you like if you do ever try them!

    Can’t complain about getting more than you ordered, but hopefully the other girl ended up getting her stuff too, haha! There are so many goodies in here! Can’t wait to hear what you think about them, especially the Belief Aqua Bomb moisturizer. The Moisturizing Bomb (which is thicker) is an OG for me, I’ve always wondered how the Aqua Bomb compares on dry skin!

    • April 27, 2020 / 12:27 pm

      I hope so too! I’m sure Sephora’s CS would have made it right.
      It will probably be a while before I get to trying everything, my skin freaks out when I try too many moisturizers at a time. I remember that you loved the Aqua Bomb though, I’m looking forward to trying it!

    The Physician’s Formula butter formula is so amazing, I’m not surprised you love it! OK, that mist has my name all over it! I haven’t tried much from Catrice before, so maybe that’s a good place to start. Wow, Sephora really made a whoops didn’t they?!

    • April 27, 2020 / 12:25 pm

      I wish I had tried it sooner! It’s just as amazing as everyone has been saying it is.
      I’m loving the mist! It’s nice to have a cheaper alternative to my Pixi mist, because that one is pretty expensive.
      I’m not too upset about the mix up lol 😉

      • April 28, 2020 / 3:44 pm

        I’d love to try the Butter Blushes one day!

  4. April 15, 2020 / 5:11 am

    Well, it’s not the worst to get too much stuff, at least nothing is missing!
    Those wander beauty baggage eye masks, sound soo good, I might need to get me some. The last 100 eye masks I tried all slided off, so defenitely looking for some that doesn’t 🙂

    • April 27, 2020 / 12:24 pm

      Yes that’s true! I hope whoever actually ordered the brow pencil got their order..
      Oh yeah the Wander beauty masks are the only ones I’ve tried that don’t slide around, they’re great for that!

  5. April 15, 2020 / 12:54 am

    Ooh that Physician’s Formula face palette looks stunning, looking forward to your review! I’m interested to hear how the Maybelline Fit Me compares to when you used it in the past. I know Maybelline is one of the most popular drugstore brands but I have never really loved many of their products, I do enjoy their ‘The Nudes’ palette and I did like Lash Sensational when I tried it a few years ago. It’s a mascara I’d like to revisit one day 🙂

    • April 27, 2020 / 12:23 pm

      It’s such a good palette! The powders are super pigmented, I should have tried the butter bronzer ages ago.
      That’s too bad their products haven’t worked for you! I think this foundation is one of the only things I’ve tried from Maybelline that actually stood out to me. I’ll keep an eye out for that mascara! Thanks for reading x

      • April 27, 2020 / 1:09 pm

        I’ve heard plenty of good things about the bronzer but it has a coconut scent which I’m not a fan of so wouldn’t pick it up to try unless I could smell it first to make sure the coconut wasn’t overpowering. I also forgot to add to my original comment that I have the same lash glue! I’ve used it a couple of times so far and I really like it 😊

        • April 27, 2020 / 7:30 pm

          Oh yeah, the scent is pretty strong so if you don’t like coconut it might not be your favourite thing. Good to know you like the eyelash glue too! I wish I had tried it sooner x
