Winter Sephora Haul & Cyber Monday Deluxe Sample Bag

SEPHORA WINTER HAUL & Cyber Monday Deluxe Sample Bag

Hola beauties!  Sephora offered five different Cyber Monday deluxe sample bags with orders over $35CAD.  Since I had some Christmas gifts to purchase I took advantage of the deal so I could get the Detox Post-Party deluxe sample bag.

2017 Winter sephora haul

Beauty Haul

Tarte Rainforest Of The Sea Aquacealer Concealer
I needed a new concealer and this one was on sale for $15! I was so excited, in my memory I have never owned a concealer that wasn’t from the drugstore. This concealer is a tad bit runny but so far has worked well to conceal dark circles.

Sephora Almond Foot Mask 
My “cats” picked this out as a gift for my mom for christmas. Such thoughtful kitties! She’s been having problems with her feet being dry and sore lately so I hope this foot mask helps.

Sol de Janeiro Samba 2 Step Foot Fetish Care
I’ve had this box in my posession for a few days and ONLY NOW did I get the pun on this box. 2 step? Like the dance?  I feel like I just had an “aha!” moment. This foot cream set has rave reviews at Sephora. I couldn’t find much about it on YouTube, but I decided to pick it up for Mom and see if she likes it.

Foil Samples

Since online orders get three free samples I chose a little Bare Minerals lipstick book sampler containing 4 different shades, a Too Faced Born This Way foundation sampler, and a Philosophy eye cream sample card. So far I really like the lipstick and haven’t tried the other samples yet.

Cyber Monday Deluxe Sample Bag

There were five bags to choose from. Some of them contained more makeup while others were more skincare based. Luckily shoppers could see exactly what was in each bag before picking one. I chose a bag with a mix of makeup & skincare.

The Bag

I always try to make an order when there’s a deluxe sample offer that includes a makeup bag! Sephora makeup bags tend to be well made and hold quite a lot of makeup unlike a lot of my Ipsy bags. I still have the makeup bag I got with last years sephora deluxe sample offer so I’ll be gifting this makeup bag.

Fresh Sugar Lip Caramel Balm & Chloé Sample Perfume

Fresh Sugar Lip Caramel Hydrating Balm 
This is a sample that I’ve debated adding to my cart a few times when it was available in the beauty deals section of the Sephora website. I haven’t tried out Fresh Lip products prior to receiving this bag, but I love their soy cleanser. This smells like brown sugar, it’s divine!

Chloé Eau de Parfume
I’ve worn this fragrance before and it’s not my favourite. It’s not bad, I just prefer other scents. I’ll be giving this to a friend.

ABH Brow Whiz & Josie Maran

Josie Maran 100% Argan Oil Deluxe Sample
I’ve heard really great things about Josie Maran from Mare over at Beauty Banter. I tried a sample of the Josie Maran Argan Milk Serum and I liked it so I’m hoping I feel the same about the 100% Argan Oil. This is the perfect size to try out!

ABH Brow Whiz Deluxe Sample
This is a product I’ve been wanting to try for ages but couldn’t justify the splurge. Unfortunately the sample doesn’t have a spoolie on the end, but that’s not the end of the world. It’s actually a pretty small sample, I thought it would be close to half size but there’s only a tiny bit of product in the sample. I tried it out and instantly saw what the hype was about, it’s so easy to carve my brows with this pencil!

Farmacy & Living Proof Deluxe Samples

Farmacy Green Clean Makeup Meltaway Cleansing Balm Deluxe Sample
I’ve seen this brand before at Sephora but I’ve never been tempted to add it to my cart. This cleansing balm is supposed to be able to dissolve any type of makeup or sunscreen. I don’t know why, but I assumed this would be more of a cream texture. It’s closer to the texture of a lip balm, I’m looking forward to trying this out.

Living Proof Perfect Hair Day 5 in 1 Styling Treatment Foil
This hair treatment product is supposed to give hair volume, smoothness, strength and polish. I don’t use hair products often, but I’ve liked Living Proof products in the past.

    I missed the Cyber Monday promo- I was trying to boycott it after spending $500 at the Rouge Sale, but I still ended up ordering a few sample sets on Black Friday haha. They won’t let me stopppp! xo J

      That’s understandable, I wouldn’t want to make any more orders after the VIB rouge sale! Next time!

    Thanks so much for the shout out!! Let me know how you like it! My one suggestion is to warm it in your palms first and then press into the skin. Otherwise, you will look oily if you put too much on. I had to learn the hard way! lol

      No problem!! I’ve learned the most about josie maran from you so it was only fair 😁
      Thanks for the tip! I hadn’t thought to do that, I’ll try it put tonight 😊

        Yeah, I use it to lock in my serums and stuff. Normally I use it as my moisturizer unless I’m feeling extra dry then I’ll use both. If you have any milk left, put that on before the oil! I hope you love it!!

    That sample bag looks so good! I am so jealous of the Fresh Caramel lip balm!!! Your cats are so nice to your mom lol.

      I love deluxe dample bags! I really like the lip balm too, I’m constantly using it ☺ Haha yes they are, such thoughtful cats 😂
