I hope April is treating you all well, I can’t believe that Spring is here! Our weather is still intermittent here, there was snow on the ground on April 1st and the indecisive warming and cooling trend continues. I think I can turn off my furnace now, but I’m worried that as soon as I do it will snow! I was looking forward to this time of year for the Sephora April VIB Sale despite the weather. There were so many Spring releases and products in general that I was holding out to purchase until the sale. Let’s get into my Sephora April VIB Sale Haul!
Anastasia Beverly Hills
Soft Glam Palette
This palette was on my Spring Wish List last month as well as my Sephora VIB Sale Wishlist. I don’t normally rush out and buy new palettes but I read some reviews on it and couldn’t help myself. There are a few eyeshadow repeats between the Soft Glam and the Modern Renaissance and I know people have said that the Soft Glam wasn’t a necessity for them because of that. Since this is my First ABH palette the repeats don’t really bother me. These shades are sooo pretty and springy!
Caudalie Thirst-quenching Saviours Set
I received a sample of the Caudalie SOS Thirst-Quenching Serum in my February Look Fantastic box. I noticed a huge improvement in the hydration levels of my skin while using the sample. I have extremely dry skin and my dry patches have resurfaced since I started testing moisturizers for the 2018 Elle Canada Grand Prix because I’ve been changing moisturizers each week. I’m hoping that this will help balance out those dry patches again.
The Caudalie SOS serum retails for $59CAD full size, but this set includes the full size serum plus a Moisturizing Sorbet and Grape Water Spray for $59CAD. I technically bought this a week or two before the sale because I was worried it would sell out, and it did. I’m including it in my haul because I haven’t talked about it on Always Cleia yet!
Sephora Collection Lipstories Lipstick
These lipsticks retail for $10CAD and have really great reviews at Sephora. I’m obsessed with the packaging, each shade of lipstick has it’s own design. I chose the matte shade Brunch Date and it has a picture of a little brunch table on it! The side of the lipstick as the word “Matte” embossed into it.
My lips are horribly dry lately, I’m not really sure why. This shade is really pretty but right now it sets into my lip lines because of how dry they are. I’m hoping after a few days of intense moisturizing and maybe a few lips masks it will sit better on me.
Sephora Collection Ocean Crush Sponge Set
I had a different Sephora sponge in my VIB Sale Wishlist but this ocean crush set released during the sale. I’m using a drugstore sponge from Quo currently and I don’t like they way it blends my foundation. I decided to go back to Sephora sponges and I love how cute and soft these sponges are!
Becca Wake Up Call Kit
The value on this set is unreal. This contains the travel size (0.5 oz) of Becca’s First Light Primer plus a liquid highlight and costs only $18. The travel size costs $24 at Sephora and the full size retails for $46 so this is actually a really good deal. I really like the First Light Primer, it’s not silicone based and my foundation sits nicely on top of it.
Too Faced Natural Face Palette
I was talking with Nova about the rebranded Too Faced Natural Collection and I remember saying I was going to stay strong and not buy this face palette… but then I saw it in an Emily Noel video and I had to have it. Do I need two bronzers, two blushes, and two highlighters? Probably not, but this palette is stunning and I know I’ll use every single shade! The Starlight highlighter is beautiful, I’m going to film a first impressions video of the Natural Face Palette asap!
In total I spent just over $160CAD on this haul. And you know what? I regret nothing! This is the largest purchase I’ve ever made from Sephora or on makeup in general in one order but it’s all products that I know I’ll use. I noticed a theme with my purchases, I’m definitely feeling orangey coral shades this season! Even my sponges are orange xD I’m not really feeling the new mini Huda coral palette though…
