Sephora Haul & 2014 Birthday Gift

My bank account prefers it if I stayed away from Sephora, and I try to, for the most part, but once or twice a year I go on a little (or large...) splurge. One of those splurges is always in April- gotta get my Beauty Insider Bday gift, obviously- but I was doubly gifted as there was also a sale. Can't be a sale! Read on to see everything I got!

Like many Sephora hauls, it doesn't look like a lot, but it did add up fast. I knew exactly what I wanted, so I didn't even get a long, decisive shopping experience. You know the type- where you kind of want everything, but have to make a decision but it's just SO. HARD. Those types. I knew I wanted Urban Decay Naked 3 and the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Mood Light. Check and check! Since the sale was on, I threw in the Bare Minerals Prime Time because my UD Primer Potion just hasn't been working as well as it once did. It was between Bare Minerals and NARS, but I used a sample of Prime Time and liked it so it won.

Of course, a few samples. Fairly standard, but I am excited to give the Glam Glow a try.

Annd, last but not least the Beauty Insider Birthday Gift! This year it's a cute little duo from Make Up For Ever that includes their Smoky Extravagant Mascara (review) and Rouge Artist Natural Lipstick in N9 Copper Pink. Copper Pink is a gorgeous natural rose-nude shade with the slightest coppery shimmer. The Rouge Artist Natural formula is superb as it's light and translucent but builds up to be semi-opaque. I'm already picking out which shade(s) will be in my next Sephora haul and it seems like a lot of ladies have loved this shade as it's currently out of stock.

Did you take advantage of the sale? What did you get?
