In the Mail: Sephora Haul!

Today I want to share what came in the mail from the Sephora order I placed during the recent points promotion (2x for IB, 3x for VIB, 4x for VIB Rouge).

I picked up:
  • Sephora Favorites Give Me Some Lip
  • Living Proof No Frizz Shampoo and Conditioner (60mL x 2) [Review Here]
  • Urban Decay Vintage 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil - 1999 [Review Here]
  • Sephora Dual Pencil Sharpener
  • Dior Cleansing Oil - Sample (15mL) [Review Here]
  • Chloe Eau de Parfum - Sample (1.2mL) [Review Here]
  • Bumble and Bumble Gentle Shampoo + Super Rich Conditioner - Sample (7mL x 2)
  • Dior Hydra Life BB Eye Creme - 01 Luminous Beige - Sample (1mL)

I placed the order because I wanted to pick up the Sephora Favorites Give Me Some Lip. I rarely finish lip products, so the smaller sizes mean less waste and more variety. I think this set is a great deal, especially since the shades are very wearable and there is something for everyone.

I have been wanting to try the Living Proof No Frizz line for a while now. I have gone through one wash and so far so good. It seems to be great at getting rid of the build-up in my hair.

I picked up the Urban Decay Vintage 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in 1999 and the Sephora sharpener so I wouldn't have to pay for shipping. I look forward to making good use of them as well.

A few more details regarding this limited edition of Sephora Favorites Give Me Some Lip:

The set contains:
  • Laura Mercier Lip GlacĂ© (Bare Pink) - 0.10oz (full size 0.15oz for $24) - value: $16
  • Buxom Full-On Lip Polish (Dolly) - 0.07oz (full size 0.15oz for $19) - value: $8.87 [Review Here]
  • NARS Lip Gloss (Turkish Delight) - 0.14oz (full size 0.28oz for $25) - value: $12.50
  • Fresh Sugar RosĂ© Tinted Lip Treatment - 0.08oz (full size 0.15oz for $22.50) - value: $12
  • Bite Beauty High Pigment Pencil (Rhubarb) - 0.05oz (full size 0.09oz for $24) - value: $13.34 [Review Here]
  • Tarte LipSurgence Lip Luster (Glitzy) - 0.10oz (full size 0.10oz for $24) - value: $24 [Review Here]

This set's total value comes in at $86.71 (hopefully no arithmetic errors on my part), which makes it a fantastic deal. The formula for Fresh Lip Treatment [Review Here] and the Buxom Lip Polish [Review Here for Leslie] are already tried and true favorites of mine. I am really excited to try everything. Reviews coming soon!

Each swatch was photographed on a different day, so the differences in lighting are due to my attempts at accurate shade portrayal.

Which beauty products did you buy recently? Are you tempted by this lip set?


  1. You got the Sephora dual sharpener! I wanted to pick up an extra one but they're all sold out now.

    1. I couldn't pass it up when it only cost $1! Hopefully the sharpener will work well for all my pencils.

  2. Ahhhh I'm waiting on my Give Me Some Lip too! It really is a fantastic deal and I've wanted to try them all anyway so why not.

    1. Let me know what you think once you receive yours! I think the Bite pencil may be my favorite discovery in this set.
