Sephora Haul

Why hello there. I hope life is treating you all well! School has been a little hectic for me and I'm still trying to get the hang of it. It's been difficult for me to balance school, work, spending time with my husband, and spending time with my family because of all the papers and studying I've been doing, but it's nice to have that support and understanding (especially from the hubby) that school has to be on top of my priority list! 

Anyway, here are the things I purchased from Sephora. Some products were bought in store and the others were bought online.

In Store:
Clarisonic Brush Head | Deep Pore Cleansing
I decided to try a different brush since I've been using the sensitive head brush for so long that it feels like it no longer benefits my skin. I'm really glad I made this change because this brush head is amazing! It deep cleans so well and my skin has been looking a lot more fresh and radiant.

Make Up For Ever | Duo Mat Powder Foundation
I was looking for a powder with decent coverage to set my foundation and touch up throughout the day. I usually touch up with a translucent powder, but sometimes, my skin absorbs foundation to the point where it comes off looking a little patchy. This powder has been doing a great job with keeping it to a minimum.

YSL | Rouge Pur Couture - 13 Le Orange
Love, love, love, love, and love this lipstick! I own a Rouge Volupte lipstick (shade #2) and find it too drying, but this lipstick is moisturizing and pigmented! I highly recommend this shade if you're into bright lipsticks!

Swatch:

Donna Karan | Cashmere Mist Deodorant
This deodorant gets a lot of love on youtube, so I couldn't resist when I saw this at the checkout stand. It has a pleasant scent and stays on the whole day.

Beauty Insider 500 Points Perk | Essential Glow Set 
I was excited about this one! I haven't had time to play around with it just yet, but the set comes with 7 deluxe-sized samples.

Online:
Sephora | Make Up Artist Brush Belt Set
I've been wanting this brush set forever, but could never bring myself to buy it because $275 is too much for a set of brushes (for me, anyway). This wonderful set is now on sale for $99! If you've been interested in this brush set (link), now is the time to get it! It might be too late if you hesitate.

Too Faced | Borderline Smoothing, Anti-Feathering Lip Pencil
I needed a good lip liner for my bright lipsticks.

Beauty Insider 500 Points Perk | Laura Mercier Flawless Color Shimmer, Shadow, & Shine Set
I was a little underwhelmed with this set, to be honest.

100 Point Perk & Samples
I forgot all about the Clean deodorant (100 Point Perk) when I bought the Donna Karan one. Oh well, it doesn't hurt to see if it'll work out for me or not.

And that would be it for my haul. Thanks for stopping by!
