Catch-Up Haul (Part 1 of 3): From Sephora

Hello All! I hope you're all lively and well! 

I always seem to fall behind when it comes to haul posts... Anyway, these things were purchased a while ago.

Ariel Storylook Eyeshadow Palette by Sephora
 This lovely palette was a gift from my husband. I was looking everywhere for it and it was always sold out even though I used the "email me when it's in stock" option. I gave up looking because I was swamped with schoolwork and work. I remember coming home after having a horrible day and found this palette sitting on my vanity. It turns out he was calling various Sephora stores everyday to check if they had them in stock.

Laura Mercier Face Illuminator - Spellbound
I kicked myself for not getting the Rose Rendezvous highlighter Laura Mercier released two years ago... so when I saw this, I thought I shouldn't take any chances and just get it. I'm glad I did though. It's a lovely highlighting shade that looks very natural without it being too obvious. Gotta love that glow!

Ole Henrickson - Gel Contour Des Yeux Lifting Optimal
I ran out of my Origins eye cream and wanted to try a new one. I've only used it for two-three weeks, so it's too soon to say anything.

Clinique - All About Lips
I'm looking for a lip product that would help relieve my lip eczema... and unfortunately, this did not do so. I use it every night and so far, I think it's just like any regular lip balm.

Benefit Real Birthday Turn Ons!
September is my birthday month, so I received the beautyinsider birthday gift on the left. It includes two deluxed-size Benefit products: They're Real! mascara & Watts Up highlighter.

VIB Rouge Welcome Kit
I'm embarrassed to say that I qualified for the Sephora VIB Rouge program when it first launched. It just shows that I need to stop shopping there, I guess. Anyway, it comes with a new shiny red membership card and a limited-edition lipstick (deluxed-sized) by Bite beauty for VIB Rouge members only. 

And finally, I got a bag of goodies from a promotion Sephora did a while ago. 

Thanks so much for stopping by! =)


  1. Love that Ariel Palette! I snagged one as soon as I could!

  2. Yay, good job to your hubby! :D Wow, Rouge status! I'm a good ways from it...granted, I was on my Project 10 for over five months so Sephora hasn't been seeing my money. LOL! I didn't know about the lipstick that came with it. That is a really neat perk!

  3. Congrats on becoming Rouge! Next year, when a whole year has passed, you should let us know what it was like being Rouge and whatnot. Also this haul is fantastic! I can't wait to see how that well coveted Ariel Palette looks! :D
