This day didn't start very well for me. First, my daughter misses the bus and I had to drop her off at school and then as I was driving to work, she calls me and tells me that she is feeling sick and wants me to pick her up so I ended up being late for work. I was like, why did I even bother sending you to school? I really don't feel like working today but we have a mandatory all staff meeting this afternoon...I hope things get better this weekend.
I finally received my VIB order. The moment of truth and all I gotta say is DAMNNN I better not do anymore damage after this.
Jack Black It's The Balm Lip Quad ($25), one of the best lip balms out there and what's even better is getting a set of 4: natural mint, mango & mandarin, shea butter, and black cherry & pomegranate. The set is exclusive to Sephora and I think it's now sold out online. Some stores don't carry the Jack Black products. I just found out that my local Sephora doesn't. Anyways, even if you can't find this set, if you need a good lip balm, you can still purchase them individually.
So I was torn between the Urban Decay Ocho Loco 2 set and the Black Market set but with all the recent damages, I decided to go with the Black Market ($36) which is a little cheaper. It's got a nice range of shade that I find easy to wear. Plus, I never finish an eyeliner before it dries out so I'm content with the size of these. The good news is both of the eyeliner sets are still available.

Origins A Perfect World ($52) anti-aging serum. I tried a little sample of it and liked it so I decided to take advantage of the sale to get it. You gotta test this in store next time you go to Sephora. The texture is so silky and buttery and has a fresh gentle scent.
OBSESSIVE COMPULSIVE COSMETICS Lip Tar All-Star Mini Set ($20). I've always wanted to try them. People rave about how pigmented they are and there's no doubt about it. They are extremely saturated. However, I can't really justify purchasing the regular tube (at $18 a pot) considering I have tons of lip products already so I was pleased to see this mini set for just $20. They do look small but because they are very pigmented you really do not need a whole lot per application so these will still last you a while and the full size is probably going to last you forever unless you use it every day.

Yes, I indulged on some more L'Occitane. I have been eyeing this Almond Oil ($40). I think I especially need it for the cold months for my dry skin. It looks a lot smaller than I thought.
Ok so I guess I have a thing for Almond. I purchased the L'Occitane Delicious Almond Set ($60). I'm going to be seriously pampering my skin this winter :).
This set includes:
- 8.4 oz Almond Cleansing and Softening Shower Oil
- 3.5 oz Almond Firming and Smoothing Milk Concentrate
- 1.7 oz Almond Cleansing and Exfoliating Delicious Soap
- 0.5 oz Almond Firming and Soothing Supple Skin Oil
- 1 oz Almond Delicous Hand Cream
I redeemed a 100 points for the First Aid Beauty 1oz Ultra Repair Cream. Can't wait to find out how this cream works. It's supposed to be good for very dry skin.
Because I did 2 separate order, I received more samples. I got some manly sample for my son and some for myself. I gotta say that the Dolce & Gabbana The One perfume smells REALLY nice. I'm thinking about getting it already....my conscience is slapping me in the back of my head and saying "oh just stop it right now!" lol...
I'm glad I didn't buy too much makeup and invested more on skincare. If you missed my first haul, you can see it HERE.
Okie dokie...Gotta go to...Hope you had fun looking at my haul. What did you purchase from the VIB sale?
