Haul! Caudalie, NARS, Michael Kors

I've been doing some shopping, and I thought I'd share my goodies with you! :)

When I was in Montreal a few weeks ago I picked up a set from Caudalie, which included 2 products I've really been wanting to try out, and then two extra products. The two products I was excited about were the Beauty Elixer, and the Lip Conditioner. I've heard amazing things about both of these, and it seems like the Beauty Elixer has won over many beauty bloggers! The other two products included are the Instant Foaming Cleanser and the Hand and Nail Cream. The kit cost $28 and had a retail value of $59, so I couldn't pass it up!

I also stopped over to Sephora and picked up three NARS eye shadow duos! I own a few single eye shadows from NARS, but these are my first duos. These are the ones I picked up:

NARS Habanera (mint green shimmer/glimmering charcoal plum) - I've been wanting a mint green eye shadow, and I think I've found one in this duo. The two colours compliment each other very well, and I can't wait to use them!

NARS Vent Glace - This duo is a new addition, as a part of NARS' Fall 2012 Color Collection. This duo is very wearable, two great everyday colours. NARS describes these shades as Platinum and Silver Smoke, which is pretty accurate.

NARS Sugarland (glimmering apricot/ lavender pink with golden sheen) - The pink in this duo is absolutely gorgeous when it's swatched! I just couldn't resist :) I'm really excited to try out all three duos! 

Lastly, but definitely not least, I finally caved and picked up the Michael Kors watch that I've been lusting over!

I chose the model MK5491, a rose golden watch with a white mother of pearl background. I absolutely love it! :)

I have also gotten some samples from Sephora over the last couple of weeks. Sephora sends out emails with available samples, and I always make sure to make my way into a store to pick them up! Here's what I've gotten lately:

Smashbox Photo Finish Under Eye Primer - I've been absolutely loving this product over the last week or two, and I am considering purchasing the full size bottle once I'm done with my samples.

Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Foundation in Ivory - I got colour matched to this shade in Sephora, but I haven't tried it out yet.

Sephora Instant Moisturizer - I haven't used any skincare products from the Sephora brand, so it'll be great to try out this sample.

Givenchy Noir Couture 4 in 1 Mascara - Volume, Length, Curl & Care - I'm always open to trying out high end mascaras! I'm excited to try this one out to see if it's worth a repurchase :)

Dior Hydra Life BB Creme - I was given two samples of this product, and I'm trying to find a way to make it work for my skin tone. I am finding it a bit yellow for my skin tone, but I'm going to try mixing it with my moisturizer to see if that will work any better!

So that's my haul! I'm really excited about all of my new products, if you want any full reviews of anything I picked up, let me know in the comments! :)


  1. ooh lots of new stuff! it all looks great, I particularly LOVE that watch!

    1. Thanks! I'm so afraid to scratch it, I'm treating it like my baby lol :p

  2. Love everything on your haul!
    Seems like you and I share the same taste in brands :) I love NARS and MK too! hehe but who doesn't right? :p
    I've been keen on trying the Caudalie Beauty Elixir, but i just don't know if it's worth the $$, although that set looks like a great deal!


    1. Very true, who doesn't love NARS and Kors?! :)
      I've heard great things about the Beauty Elixer, I'm excited to see if it's really worth the hype :)

  4. :O amazing buys! I've wanted to get my hands on a Michael Kors rose gold watch for literally years, I've put it on my xmas/birthday wishlist for the past few years hoping someone will buy me it, but no one ever does! haha I think I'll get myself one this year :) x

    1. I love mine! It's definitely worth the splurge, especially if you've wanted it for that long! I don't know how you've resisted!
