Holiday Beauty Haul

Well, beauty fans, the latest Sephora Bonus Event has come and gone. My holiday haul is comprised of four separate purchases: two in-store and two online. And in the process, I leveled up to Rouge status—my second time ever hitting Rouge. Yay!/Yikes?

There’s one thing I bought that I’m not sharing here because I might use it to do a giveaway on my Instagram account. I haven’t decided whether I’ll do the giveaway yet…I’ve never done one before and I hear they can bring out the crazies.  😛

Why These Products

I only bought one item (sort of) that I had included on my wishlist: the Hourglass palette. The one I listed in that post was the original Ghost palette that Hourglass released, but the brand also released an “Unlocked” version that I believe was online only. The Unlocked palette has paler shades and looked more fit for my skin tone, so that’s what I ended up getting. And I’m very glad that I did, now that it seems to be sold out! LOOK AT THIS GORGEOUSNESS:

Hourglass Ghost Unlocked Palette

The bareMinerals tinted moisturizer, Ceramidin Cream, and eye stick are all repurchases. I’m running a bit low on my tinted moisturizer so I figured I’d re-up; I get compliments on my skin when I use it! The Ceramidin was great for me last winter so I wanted to have it on hand again this year. And when I spotted the GlamGlow eye masks online I had to get them…they look like they’ll be super fun!

I initially bought the lip set thinking I’d include it in an Instagram giveaway…but I decided to keep it for myself, hehe. That full sized Tilbury lipstick (shade: Very Victoria) got me! How fun is this set?!

Give Me More Lip Set

I’m so excited to start using my new goodies…especially the Hourglass palette. It’s so luxe and I’ve never owned a face palette like this before!
