Sephora Employee Appreciation Haul

Yup! I'm one of those lucky people who has an awesome friend that works at Sephora and handed me an Employee Appreciation card, allowing me a 20% off discount. I apologize in advance if it's a boring haul, but I'm happy with what I got and how much I saved.

STILA | One Step Correct
I've been eyeing this product for a while. My SA friend gave me a sample of the product and I really loved it! It is a one-step prep (although it claims to be a primer, it's not much of one). The 3 swirls of color each do something different: the green reduces redness, the lavender counteracts "sallow" or yellow tones, and the peach illuminates and brightens the skin. I don't have massive redness, but I definitely am red in certain areas. I found that this product did an amazing job within seconds. I may do a proper/full review on it later.

FORMULA X FOR SEPHORA | Nail polishes in Invincible and Hocus Pocus
Been hearing nothing but good things about this new line that Sephora has brought in, so I definitely had to pick some up. They're $15 a bottle, but even with the 20% discount, I had to limit myself to only 2. I got Invincible from the "New Neutrals" collection and Hocus Pocus from the "Holograms" collection. There is SO much to choose from though! Can't wait to try these out.

TWEEZERMAN | ProCurl Eyelash Curler
This is was recommended to me by my SA friend and I am SO glad I picked them up. I've been using another eyelash curler by elf until it crapped out on me and I couldn't find my replacement pads, so I decided I should probably invest in a nice one.

KAT VON D | True Romance Pigments in Rapture
I picked up this pigment on clearance for $7 on a whim and I'm so glad I did! I'm in love with coppery pigments and from looking outside the jar, it looked almost the same as Sugarpill's Asteria, but upon swatching it, it's a bit lighter, but super pretty.

URBAN DECAY | Urban Essentials 500 point reward
As I was standing in line to pay for my purchase, this "reward" caught my eye. I crossed my finger that I had 500 points so that I could redeem them for such an awesome reward since it's been a looong while since Sephora had a reward that was worth redeeming for. This little kit includes generous samples of B6 Vitamin-Infused complexion prep spray, the All Nighter setting spray, the Eyeshadow Primer Potion Anti-aging and an eyeshadow in Mushroom. I'm quite amazed with the deluxe-sized samples.

I also picked up Laura Mercier's Artist Palette for Eyes for my mom's birthday and she ended up really liking it!

So glad I was able to get this discount. As far as I know, I believe there will be another Friends and Family sale in November for VIB members, so I may have another haul to look forward to.
