Hey, beautiful! Guess who went to Sephora? So, I haven’t exactly written a makeup haul and review yet, but I think it’s time. I don’t normally spend a lot of cash on makeup because I go through it so quickly. But I recently had a little extra doe, so I went to Sephora and decided to splurge on myself. Overall, I am very content with my purchases. I wanted to share my haul and review with you guys just in case you wanted to try it and need a second opinion. As a disclaimer, this post does contain affiliate links. My blog is just like any other business and requires some kind of income to stay on the web. I hope you enjoy the haul!

Kat Von D Shade & Light Face Contour Palette

I was hesitant about buying products to contour my face. I usually give myself a pop of color with a little bronzer, but I wanted to see what the fuzz was all about. My favorite part about this palette is that it comes with different shades of bronzer and highlighters. I have a natural pale complexion, but I tan on occasions. With this this palette, I don’t have to buy a shade darker than what I normally use. I would recommend this to anyone who is learning how to contour. Although the powders are pigmented, it’s easy to create a subtle look. The formula is smooth and very blendable. You can also layer the product to achieve a more contoured look. This product is also made without parabens and sulfates.

Brow Zings by Benefit

I have nearly non-existent eyebrows. They are very thin and blonde, so I have tried many different products for brows. I like that this kit is compact and comes with a small pair of tweezers. I use the tweezers and mirror more than the actual product. For me, even the light shade is too dark for my blonde brows. The brush is not my favorite, but I use the angled brush. I could see how this kit could work on women with naturally darker eyebrows. The good news is that the color stays on all day.

Urban Decay Sheer revolution Lipstick & Liner

I have thin white girl lips, so lipsticks and liners are my best friends. I bought the Urban Decay Sheer Revoluion Lipstick and liner in the shade Sheer Obsessed. The formula of the lipstick is creamy like a balmy texture. It’s also very hydrating with the combination of Shea butter and moisturizing oils. I also thought the pigment was going to be too sheer, but I was pleasantly surprised. The color stays on my lips for 2-3 hours. They also don’t contain any fragrances, which is great for dry or sensitive lips. The liner is just as pigmented and creates a beautiful fuller look. It glides smoothly so I can outline my lips flawlessly. I also was able to buy them on sale for half off. I give this pair a 9 out of 10 stars.

Roller Lash By Benefit

I usually have to apply several coats with other mascara, but with Roller Lash by Benefit I only need 2 or 3 swipes for full lashes.The formula is smooth and doesn’t clump.This mascara’s brush is literally made for separating eyelashes while lengthening and defining for a voluminous look. I bought the mini size and I would absolutely go back for the full size. This little guy is just cute and convenient.The curling wand also gives your lashes a natural looking curl.

Makeup Forever Mat Velvet + Mattifying Foundation

I have combination skin, so certain types of foundation work for me. When my skin tends to be oily, this foundation minimizes shine. I have very pink undertones in my skin and I noticed right away that this foundation has a great coverage you can build. This product evens out my complexion for a polished finish.
