Sephora Haul


I'm on an unofficial no-buy. I just made it a bit more official by making that public... but still. I am not going to set definite rules, as I'll only be setting myself up for failure, but I am trying my darndest not to buy. I'm allowing myself the following wiggles: if it is something on super sale, like waaay to good to pass up or if it is something I truly need.This haul is my last for a while, and I think I made some pretty good choices.

Philosophy Black Cherry Italian Soda Body Lotion and Shower Gel

Usually I don't jump at the newest Philosophy offerings, even though they always seem so tempting, but when I read that one of the new scents was going to be black cherry I knew I had to have it. It smells amazing! It's got a burst of the sweet, but deep cherry scent with a hint of an almost root-beer like spice. So good.



Caudalie Beauty Elixir

This product has made it's way onto every blog in the past while, and since I don't think I've ever met a facial mist I didn't like, I had to try it. This is more than just a facial mist, as it is packed full of all sorts of good things, so I'm excited to see if this will make a difference to my skin. I've been on a real skincare kick lately and have been overhauling my routine. Now I just have to figure out what combination works best.

 Stila 'In the Light', 'In the Garden', and 'In the Moment' Palette Samples

Stila 'In the Light', 'In the Garden', and 'In the Moment' Palette Samples

Of course, what's a Sephora order without samples? I got the basic three packets of this and that, but I also got samples of each of Stila's new palettes. I tried a little corner of one of the shadows to see how much you get of each colour, and it seems like there is a generous amount. There is nothing worse than deciding to use eyeshadow samples and get half way through a look and not have enough. I'm kind of wishing I hadn't started a no-buy, as the 'In the Garden' palette is looking pretty good...

Have you hauled any goodies lately?
