Small Sephora Haul--Tarte, Clinique, and Benefit

I got these goodies last Saturday. I went to Sephora after work to return my NARS Front Row Set because it wasn't all that. *Sigh* yes I have to work my butt off this week and weekend too.
In exchange, I picked up a couple things. I was really hoping to find the new Urban Decay Primer Potion in a TUBE! But they didn't have it. I guess it's only currently available online but I will pick one or two up next time they pop in store. In case you didn't know, they have all 4 of them in the tube. I'm excited about the new packaging! If you want to see how they look, follow this link;jsessionid=FQYTUBICXAFNOCV0KQRRPIQ?id=P284715&categoryId=C10461

Anyways, back to what I was saying...I bought the Murad Acne Complex Kit (not pictured) for my son since the Clean & Clear stuff don't seem to work too well for him.

 For myself, I bought the new Tarte Amazonian Clay long-wear blush. I was intrigued since it is new and long-wearing. Most of my blushes have faded or completely disappeared by the time I get off work. I'm someone who is very busy and doesn't like to bother with touching up during the day so I tend to gravitate toward products that are long-wearing. This product claims to last up to 12 hours.
I got the shade Blissful, which is a pinkish coral. I love how natural this looks and it applies matte. I've worn it for the past couple days and I can say, it definitely outlast my other blushes and will get you through the day without the need to touch up. So if you are in the market for a long-wearing blush, you may want to check this out. It's not too powdery, the pigmentation is just right and buildable so you won't overdo your cheeks. Price $25.00.

Next, I impulsively bought this tiny bottom lash mascara from Clinique. For the record, I rarely wear mascara, even though I do have a few different ones at my disposal. This cost $10.00 so I thought, why not?! lol. See how cute and tiny the wand is? It's perfect for reaching those tiny lashes.
The formula is very black. It does a fairly decent job at coating the lashes. Another thing you'll need to know is this mascara is formulated to be removed with warm water. It comes off easily when you wash it off with warm water but try using your makeup remover and this will hardly budge if at all. Interesting, isn't it?

I used my 100 point perks to redeem for this sample Clinique All About Eye Serum. This is intended to "de-puff" your eyes. Ever since I've been using eye creams on the regular, I've noticed less puffiness around my eyes. I haven't given this a try yet so, I don't have much to say about it. This is free for beauty insiders and if you have 100+ points.

At last, I got this free (with any $35.00 purchase) new Benefit B.Right. skincare deluxe sample kit. This is only available to VIB. If you are a VIB, you probably seen the email offer.
This kit contains:
  • Triple Performing Facial Emulsion moisturizer
  • Foamingly Clean facial wash
  • It's Potent! eye cream
I think the glass packaging of the moisturizer and eyecream is so adorable!

That's it for my little haul. I didn't splurge like I did last week, lol. I hope you enjoyed checking out my new goodies.


  1. Great haul! The blush looks awesome and I think it's a great value for the price :) I believe it holds more product than a Nars blush but it's $2 cheaper ^^ I love the freebies you got too! I'm pretty curious about the new Benefit skincare line. Please share your thoughts on those products if/when you try them out :D

    It really amazes me how you can juggle work, family life and maintaining this blog (pictures, editing, writing). I'm just in school, barely go out, and I find it difficult to churn out posts! ^^ Keep up the awesome work~

  2. AngelicBetrayal--Thanks. I will share my thoughts on the Benefit products after I have had a chance to use them for a little while.
    I guess it helps that my kids are older and more independent. Sometimes, I try to take as many pictures as I can and then blog about it whenever I find the time.
