My Sephora VIB Sale Picks for 2016

The Sephora sale is obviously one of my favorite sales ever. If you’re a beauty junkie then I’m sure you’ll agree! I have a huge beauty wishlist (see my most recent one here), but since I’m really trying to only purchase products I’ll actually use, I didn’t go c r a z y. It was difficult to the say the least. 

The main thing I knew I wanted to pick up was the Sunday Riley duo featuring their highly raved about Luna sleeping oil and Good Genes treatment. This duo contains half ounce bottles of both and they’re supposed to really brighten, exfoliate, and even the skin while also reducing fine lines.

I also picked up the Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer that I’ve been wanting for a g e s, and also picked up the Make Up For Ever Ultra HD foundation stick that has so many good reviews. I love the liquid version so I’m excited to try out the stick. Of course the Marc Jacobs Air Blush in Flesh & Fantasy had to be mine since it’s been on my wishlist since before it launched!

I’ve been getting really into brows lately, and wanted to try out something different so I picked up the Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting PencilI picked this up because I love the shape of the pencil, but also because look at that packaging! So sleek. For lips, I decided to finally try some Huda Beauty products so I picked up the Huda Beauty Lip Contour Set featuring Trophy Wife and Muse because they’re rosey/pinky nudes. My fave, of course. Last, I picked up a deluxe sized sample of the Too Faced Melted Matte Liquid Lipstick in Sell Out, a pinky brown shade. Typical ;).

What did you pick up? Let me know in the comments below!

  • I want everything!! Looking forward to hearing your thoughts on all of them! xx

    Beautylymin| Urban Decay Bundle Giveaway

    • I feel the exact same way when you talk about products on your blog haha ;)

  • You’re totally not the only one! Even though I spent weeks organizing my cart, I still ended up making last minute changes lol. I can’t wait to hear your thoughts on the foundation stick! I wanted to pick up a new base product but didn’t find any I loved so I’m totally open to hearing about more options :D

    Mili | Sharmtoaster

    • Haha I’m the same way!! I hope it’s a good foundation. I hear so many good things about it.

  • You’re not the only one for sure :) I had couple of lippies from the new Armani lip launch and when I went to order them they were all sold out :( So I didn’t pick up anything. I wanted to pick up the MUFE stick foundation but I couldn’t figure out my shade, have to go to the store to match myself.

    • Aww that’s the worst when they sell out! Especially when you’re Rouge and have first access.

  • Fabulous picks!! I love Sunday Riley and was very tempted by that beautiful set! Flesh & Fantasy is the only Air Blush I have, but I love it! I really need to get one of the Huda kits and try her products!

    xoxo Jenn│

  • Fabulous picks! Since we don’t have Sephora in UK I only treat myself to Sephora order during my birthday month because the shipping and taxes make everything much more expensive :( x

    I’ve read so many good reviews about the Huda Beauty lip products, definitely want to try some! x

    Mummy’s Beauty Corner

    • It’s so crazy to me that there isn’t a Sephora in the UK! A birthday definitely calls for spoiling yourself and placing an order :)

  • You picked some great bits. The Marc Jacobs blush looks incredible and I have my eye on one but it surprisingly works out cheaper to buy it here in UK for once lol! I’m doing my Sephora bday splurge next month and I’ve been editing my basket for at least the last 6 months haha! xxx
    Sal | UmmBaby Beauty

    • Haha I hope you pick it up then! Ahh can’t wait to see what you get!!

  • The Kevin Aucoin SKin Enhancer looks super luxurious. Thanks for sharing your picks, I go to the USA in a month and can’t wait to take advantage of the plentiful Sephora stores!

  • Yasmin Blackwell

    This is awesome! Wish we had sephora in the UK!

  • The Marc Jacobs blush looks super pretty. I saw so many people get that huda beauty lip set, I wish I picked it up now. How is the formula?

    Perfect Shade of Mauve

    • I haven’t gotten around to trying it out yet, but definitely will do a post on them :)

  • Sephora here has started doing semi regular (but not often) 20% off sales which I’ve taken advantage of a couple of times, but the range of brands/products we get isn’t nearly as good as you guys! :( My friend actually just landed in the US today so if she gets a chance to make an order…I may sneak in a few products haha! Awesome picks though! Curious to see how you go with the Huda Beauty lippies! And the Sunday Riley products! I’ve been wanting to try them but they’re waaaay outta my budget haha :P

    Tasha // shiwashiful.

    • Ooh that would be awesome if you could sneak some products in haha! I waited for this sale to try the Sunday Riley products because so expensive lmao!

  • Okay, but that Kevyn Aucoin sensual skin enhancer is like dream in a pot, can’t wait to hear more about it from you.

  • I picked up the Marc Jacobs blush too but in Lines & Last Night and stayed up till midnight for it. Thank goodness I did too as it was sold out when I woke up in the morning. Haha!

    Shireen | Reflection of Sanity

    • Haha yay!! I ordered at like 3 am and luckily everything I wanted was in stock. I would’ve been so upset if I missed out on the MJ blush!

  • I’ve been wanting to try the Makeup Forever foundation stick for so long! these photo’s are also so lovely and clear! hope you enjoy your new products x

    Liz | LotsofLoveLiz

    • Thank you so much :). I still haven’t gotten around to trying it haha, but I hope I love it!

  • Wow you picked up some amazing bits from the sale, the sets you have look fab. I especially love the look of the Sunday Riley Power Couple and the Huda Beauty Lip Contour Set. Beautiful photography btw x

    Beauty with charm

  • Okay, now I have even more envy that we don’t have Sephora here in the UK, its so annoying!! But luckily, we can purchase the Huda beauty products which I might just have to do now! Have a lovely day :)

    • I’m so shocked that you don’t have one! I hope you get a chance to try the Huda lippies :)

  • I’m so freaking jealous right now. We don’t have a Sephora in the UK. However, I believe they may be opening at some point in London (and I live a couple of hours away from London, boo!).

    I absolutely love Luna from Sunday Riley, my OH also uses it too and it’s improved his skin massively. I’m also keen to try out the new UFO oil, I’ve read some great things about it, such as it helping congested skin.

    Great post, lovely.


    • I’ve heard such good things about the UFO oil! I tried it in stores and couldn’t get over the scent, but it sounds like it would be great! I need to give it another try. Cannot wait to finally give Luna a chance :)

  • The Sunday Mode

    I’ll be interested in seeing what you think of the the Sunday Riley Good Genes treatment, i’ve often considered buying it but have been on the fence about it. It looks like you’ve got quite a few fun things to keep you busy there :) Enjoy!

    • Thanks! I will definitely be doing a review once I try it out more :)

  • Ooo, you picked up so many great things! I was about to pick up the Sunday Riley duo but decided not to at the last minute. Regrets? Probably, haha. The Huda Beauty set looks really nice! Please do a review on them! :)

    Nicole | The Glam Surge

    • Haha I knew it was the one thing I had to get! I will definitely do a review on them :)

  • I’m kicking myself for not getting the Huda Beauty set!!

    Olive & Ivy

  • Bernadette

    That kevin aucoin skin enhance looks so bloody gorgeous. I’ve had my eyes on it for a while.

    • Same! I’ve wanted it for ages so I’m so glad I finally picked it up :)

  • I really like the Huda Beauty Lip Contour lip pencils, I’m looking forward to read your thoughts on the liquid lipsticks as well as both of your Sunday Riley skincare bits! Great haul!

  • I definitely want to try the Liquid Mattes, I didn’t like the lip contours but I think the mattes might be good. Spice Girl is the one I want, god your images are so amazing. I want everything, wish we had a Sephora in the UK! Fantastic post, thanks for sharing x

    • Hehe thank you! I hope you guys get a Sephora soon! It’s about time you get one.

  • I want everything… It is so annoying that we don’t have Sephora here :( Your photos make them look even more fancy :) Looking forward to reading your thought about these products! x

    Ela BellaWorld

    • Hehe thank you! I hope you get one soon! I will definitely be doing reviews :)

  • I haven’t tried like any of these products, but looks like you’ve got quite a haul! I love Marc Jacobs beauty but its so annoyingly affordable. It looks beautiful though! Can’t wait to hear your thoughts!

    Chanel | Je M’appelle Chanel

  • These all look amazing, too bad we don’t have Sephora here :(

  • I couldn’t take part in the sale purely because Sephora are meanies and don’t make it international, but I did make an order a few weeks ago and picked up one of the Huda sets, which I’m very excited to try I got the set with Bombshell and Trendsetter. I absolutely love my Hourglass Brow Pencil it makes doing your brows fool proof :)
    xxx Claire

    • Ooh those shades look beautiful :). They need to make this sale international! I’m surprised they kind of just ignore the UK. They’re missing out on so many makeup junkies! Does the pencil part of your HG brow pencil slip out when you hold it upside down? Mine did!

      • They really do, the amount of money they are missing out on…. astronomical! I’ve not had one problem with mine, except me misplacing it, panicking, replacing it, then finding the original 2 weeks later in my mums car haha :)

  • Samileen

    I love everything you picked. What shade are you in the Kevyn Aucoin skin enhancer? I have been wanting that for ages too.
    I picked up Burberry brow pencil and absolutely love it :)

    Sam || Marc Jacobs Air Blush Giveaway

    • I picked up the shade sx08, but it’s a tad too dark so I might have to exchange it for one lighter. I blindly chose online lol.

  • The Huda Beauty set looks amazing! I need her products in my life…
