Re: Post your recent hauls!

Small Sephora Haul from this weekend:

YSL Volume Effect Faux Cils Mascara (decided to give this one a try since they were out of the YSL Shocking Mascara in Black)
Dior Addict Ultra Gloss in Pink Veil

Re: Post your recent hauls!

I recently ordered a travel brush set, and with it got the playful fragrance bag. But I'm in sephora every week - sometimes twice a week! - and usually buy something!

Re: Post your recent hauls!

I recently bought Bobbi Brown Rich Lip Color in Old Hollywood, Burberry Lip Velvet in Rose Pink, and Guerlain Ecrin 4 Couleurs in Les Verts (why greens, I don't know...they're not what I go for but these looked pretty). I also bought an Essie polish in Mint Candy Apple 🙂

Re: Post your recent hauls!

Ooohh Mint Candy Apple! I have had my eye on that too! 🙂

Re: Post your recent hauls!

@fran11: You should! I Every store in my city seemed to be out of it, but when I happened to be in a small town one weekend, I happened to see it at Target, and they had a bunch! 🙂

Re: Post your recent hauls!

Thanks for the tip Katie! I was in Target this weekend but skipped the cosmetics! I will have to check next visit!! I have a feeling that I may have a hard time finding it though! 🙂

Re: Post your recent hauls!

Fran, get the Essie shade! It's so beautiful and I always get compliments when I wear it.


I snagged it at an Ulta when the shade first launched and there were only 4 bottles available during that Christmas season at the store so I was lucky! I'm really happy Essie kept it as a regular color.

Re: Post your recent hauls!

I didnt realize that it was originally LE! I probably would have bought it right away then!  🙂


I will have to keep my eyes open for it and pick it up soon.  Seems like it will be a nice color for spring and summer.

Re: Post your recent hauls!

Quick stop to Sephora on Saturday to pick up the correct shade of the UD Naked Skin Foundation....3.0.  Also picked up the little Benefit Sample Duo by the register of Coralista and Sun Beam. 

Re: Post your recent hauls!

After reading this I don't feel too bad over the purchases I have made since I know I am not alone ;).

- Josie Maran Daily Moisturizer SPF 40 (Love this stuff)

- Tarte Maracuja Oil (amazing!)

...I think that's it although I am sure I forgot a few things.

Re: Post your recent hauls!

haha the part at the beginning of your post made me die laughing. i feel like i'm easily at my sephora like twice a week as well, and every time i walk in i feel like they just stare at me like "this chick AGAIN?"

Re: Post your recent hauls!

OH WOW! I'm almost jealous.


I have a sephora 5 min away from my house and about 4 within a 10-15 min drive x_x. 


Are there products in that haul that you would or would not recommend?

Re: Post your recent hauls!

I didn't include the products that I ended up returning/exchanging, but in that list, I would not recommend the Porefessional (just didn't work as advertised) or the Stila smudge pot (I got the champagne color as an eyeshadow and it is SO HARD to blend, not creamy at all).


My favorite products from that list are the Glamglow mask (seriously my miracle product), the PTR complexion pads (only thing that's helped with my post cystic acne marks), Urban Decay liquid eyeliner (fave liquid liner for doing cat eye), Korres lip butter glaze (all around great gloss that gives a just-bitten tint), Dr. Lipp lip balm (best lip treatment for my dry, cracked lips).

Re: Post your recent hauls!

Thanks for giving us your review on the Stila smudge pot. I always wanted to try it but everytime I go to test out the item, its always always completely dried out, no matter what Sephora or Ulta I am in. I love cream shadows, and champagne colors are my fave bc I use them pretty much everyday but yeah....I'm giving up on Stila smudge pots.

Re: Post your recent hauls!

Have you tried Benefit's cream eyeshadows? They are my FAVORITE. I particularly love Birthday Suit. It's a very subtle neutral chrome/taupe. I wear it almost every day. The only color I've had issues with dryness is the Pot of Gold one. I don't know what it was because I own 4 of those eyeshadows and I tried two different pots of the gold color and they were both really dried out.

Re: Post your recent hauls!

OMG, I am, too! I work right near one and sometimes I stop by afterward, or at lunch just to look around. I never bother anyone and I almost always buy something, but I'm still embarrassed because I know some of the employees must recognize me and I have no idea what they're probably thinking -- haha. If I didn't work near the store, I wouldn't go that frequently, but there it is, just to tempt me! 🙂

Re: Post your recent hauls!

Haha, I'm the opposite(ish). The closet Sephora is 40-50min drive away, which is why I'm on BT and all the time. The store salesladies do recognize me and probably don't like me much cuz I usually go in with a loooong list of product to try, to get samples of, aaaaaand............end up buying only 1-2 item since I usually make purchases online. X.X. I try to make up for it by writing nice reviews for the ladies that work in the skincare section.

Re: Post your recent hauls!

Same here. I have 3 (yep.....) Sephora's all less than 30 minutes away. One is free standing, the other 2 are JCP. There's another free standing one around 45 away but I very rarely go to that one. And there's a couple more JCP ones 1.5-2 hours away, and those I only visit when I'm in the area. Most JCP Sephoras (well the ones around me) carry pretty much the same brands (MUFE, Benefit, Stila, UD, Bare Escentuals/Minerals/Buxom, NARS, KVD, Tarte, Smashbox etc) that I dont see the point in driving to the farthest one when the one 10 minutes away carries the exact same brands/things. But yeah....I'm embarrased to say that I'm pretty well known in my closest 3. Every once in awhile there might be a new employee in there trying to talk me into something but then another person that knows me tells her to let me be because I buy more when I'm left alone (which is true lol, I do like to test things out!).

Re: Post your recent hauls!

There are 3 free-standing stores right in the city here, too (accessible by public transportation), and several more right outside of it. While I hardly ever go to the other two right near me, I discovered that one of them carries Armani, which is really nice (and random) -- and even though it's a smaller store, it seems to carry things that the larger flagship store does not. I love all of them, though 😛
