It’s a much smaller order than my previous two, I know. This nearly didn’t even happen this year as there wasn’t anything I really wanted from Sephora all year. Then all the gift sets came out and I shortlisted a good few of them. Then I waited for December as it's my little birthday treat. I wasn’t planning on using the birthday gifts myself but would’ve loved to have gifted it to someone else but ironically I waited for something that wasn’t meant to be. Not only did they not allow the birthday gift to be shipped out to UK this year, by waiting for my birthday month three of the four sets I wanted had sold out by then. It’s a blessing in disguise no doubt. I’m just thankful the set I wanted the most was still in stock and I managed to get two makeup products that I’ve been eager to try since their release. I give you my third Sephora haul.

Last year I bought their two little trial sets and I’m actually still using a couple of those as you surprisingly get a large amount of product in the tiny looking bottles. Sadly I had an allergic reaction to T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Night Serum but I loved every drop of C-Firma Day Serum, a potent vitamin c serum which is a beautiful formulation, absorbs quickly and helps to firm and protect skin. I knew it was something I would want to repurchase so when I saw this set, it went right into my basket. For essentially the same price of the full size of this serum I got myself a few extras to try out along with it. The set comes with a 15ml bottle of the B-Hydra Intensive Hydration Gel which is a gorgeous silky formula, the small trial size of which I’m still using up from last year's order. I’m excited to try out their Beste Jelly Cleanser and Umbra Sheer Physical Daily Defense SPF30. I know the gift set packaging is bulky but I think it is absolutely gorgeous (hence the additional images) and it’s got the cutest illustrations all over it so I’ve got it displayed on my book shelf.

I try to only buy things we can’t get here in UK from Sephora and Bite Beauty has featured in all three of my orders. I’ve loved everything I’ve tried from them so far and when I saw they had come out with liquified lipsticks I was so excited to try the formula. And now having tried this, I wish I had gotten a couple more. This isn’t a liquid lipstick in the sense we have grown accustomed to but rather a lipstick in a liquid formula, so it has a shiny satin finish, doesn’t adhere to the lips, doesn’t really dry down and is subject to transfer just like traditional lipsticks. It comes in a tube with a doe foot applicator which makes precision application super easy and quick. I love the comfortable and moisturising formula that smells like candy and is rich in pigment. It helps knowing that I’ll be eating tonnes of this stuff over the next few months as Bite Beauty products are all created with food grade ingredients. This shade is described as a mauve brown though I do find it more on the rosy side. It’s very similar to 90% of the lipsticks I own so I know I will be getting a lot of use out of it.

I decided it was time to treat myself to a new eyeshadow palette. I bought my Too Faced Natural Matte Palette the first time I shopped from Sephora and I have used it so much that I have hit pan on three of the shadows so it turned out to be such a good investment for me. And although I don't need a new eyeshadow palette since I've been gifted a number of them over the last two years, I just wanted a brand new one in my collection. This palette isn't unique in any way as we've been inundated with warm toned palettes of late, but there's something about it that calls to me. The reddish matte shades look like they will replace my love of Strapless from my Too Faced palette. And it just looks like it has a good mix of shimmers and mattes and I have every hope and inkling that this will be a good all-rounder that I will reach for a lot.

The extras:

It’s really annoying that if you order from the UK you can’t take advantage of all that Sephora has to offer to its shoppers. I couldn’t use the discount code nor could I use any special offer codes to get some extra perks. I also have a few Sephora Insider points saved up but can’t spend them on any of the deluxe samples as shipping is restricted on all of them. So these are the only samples I could get my hands on. They’re not terrible or useless samples by any means but I’d have liked a bit more choice.

Boscia Revitalising Black Hydration Gel Sample

Anastasia Beverly Hills DipBrow Pomade Samples

Tarte Rainforest Of The Sea Foundation Samples
