Sephora Chic Week Haul! (NARS & Urban Decay)

Hello everyone! Have you been able to make it out to Sephora this past week to take advantage of the 15% off for VIB's and Beauty Insiders? I sure have! Let's see what I hauled...

Now, the majority of what you see here is actually samples! On Thursday March 29th, VIB's (Very Important Beauty Insiders) were given sample bags and a gorgeous Sephora umbrella (not photographed) with any purchase. We were also given 15% off our purchases, which is amazing considering that Sephora hardly ever has sales!

So here's what I actually bought, looks a lot smaller than with all of the samples! 

Firstly, I picked up Urban Decay's Mariposa Palette. I've been so pleased with UD's Naked Palette, than I really wanted to try some of their other eye shadows. This palette offers a mix of fun colours and everyday neutrals, something for everyone! 

NARS Wicked Attraction Set - I've been wanting this for a while, and now that I had the 15% I finally caved.  This set comes with a mini duo of Orgasm blush/Laguna bronzer, a full size single eye shadow in Fathom, a mini Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base, and a mini Larger Than Life Lip Gloss in Spring Break. I'm excited to finally use the cult favourites of Orgasm and Laguna! I also really want to try out a NARS lipgloss! 

I then picked up three NARS blushes! These are rather pricey, so I thought I should get them while they are on sale. 

My first NARS cream blush! This is Cactus Flower. I'm really excited to see how the cream formula compares to the regular pressed powder formula!

Sin - "Berry with gold shimmer"

Torrid - "Coral with shimmer" 

I'm excited about all three, I'm falling more and more in love with NARS with each product I use. NARS, where have you been all my life?! What NARS bluses or other products do you recommend?

And now on to the insane amount of samples!

Here's a list of what I got: 
- sample of NARS Copacabana Illuminator - This reminds me of Benefit's High Beam, which I love, so I'm excited to see how they compare
- Clarins Gentle Foaming Cleanser (20mL)
- L.I.L.Y. Stella McCartney Eau de Parfum 1.5mL
- Roberto Cavalli Eau de Parfum 1.2mL
- Miss Dior Cherie Eau de Parfum 5mL (This is a miniture bottle, really cute!)
- BCBGMaxazria Eau de Parfum 1.52mL
- Kate Somerville 360 Degree Tanning Towelettes 15mL each
- Bumble and bumble Thickening Shampoo & Conditioner (7mL each)
- Ole Henriksen Truth Creme Advanced Hydration Facial Moisturizer, 3mL x 2 
- Kate Somerville 360 Degree Face Self Tanning Pad
- Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Glow Pad
- Dior Instant Eye Makeup Remover 15mL
- NARS Orgasm Illuminator 8mL (I was given this because I bought NARS products)

And finally... Bare Minerals Ticket to Gorgeous Exclusive 4-Piece Collection Plus Bag

Mineral Veil Finishing Powder 
Mini Flawless Definition Mascara in Black
Mini Prime Time Brightening Eyelid Primer
Full Size Natrual Lipgloss in Birthday Cake

Wow! I am so pleased with the incredible amount of samples I was given! Have you hauled any items from Sephora? Chic Week ends tomorrow (April 5th) for Beauty Insiders, or April 6th for VIB's, so you still have a bit of time to make your purchases! Is there anything else you think I should pick up to take advantage of the 15% off? Let me know in the comments below! :)


  1. Wonderful haul!! :D I didn't know that Nars made cream blushes until now!

    1. They don't seem to be as popular as their pressed powder blushes but they do exist! I think there are 8 shades, but Sephora only carries two :(

  2. Awesome haul!! I have the UD Mariposa palette and I really like it!! And NARS...I love!! Can't wait to hear what you think about everything!!
