Sephora VIB Haul 2012 (Caudalie, Tarte, Origins, Laura Mercier, YSL & more!)

This morning I visited my local Sephora, to take part in the annual VIB sale! Every year, Sephora treats their VIB's to 20% off everything, so I decided to take advantage of this discount, and I picked up quite a bit of stuff!



YSL Glossy Stain in 16 Pourpre Preview - I'm so excited that I finally got one of these famed glossy stains! I wasn't sure which shade to get, but I tried on #16 in store, and I was instantly sold. This is a gorgeous berry purple shade, perfect for Autumn :)

Ojon Revitalizing Mist - I'm currently using a spray from Dove, but I'm running low so I'm going to need something to replace it. I haven't heard too much on this mist, but I decided to give it a chance anyways. A cast member at Sephora told me this one was her favourite, so I went with it!

Caudalie Beauty Elixer - I love this stuff! I already have the travel size, and I thought that the VIB sale would be the best time to pick up the larger bottle. I feel like this product really helps relax and calm my skin. This has been getting so much hype in the beauty community lately, and I think it deserves all the credit it's getting.


Origins Skin Brightening Superstars Kit - This was such a good deal, I couldn't resist. I mentioned in my October Empties post that I might be purchasing the full size tub of Origin's Night-A-Mins, since I loved my sample so much. For the price of that one product, I also got three more samples: Checks and Balances, GinZing, and Mega-Bright. 

Stila In The Light Palette - This is a product I've been lusting after for quite some time, but I've never purchased it because I have both Naked Palettes. Do I really need another neutral palette? No. But, I love them and can't resist!

Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colour in Amethyst - I've seen this on a few beauty blogs lately, and as soon as I swatched it, I fell in love. Amethyst is such a pretty, every day colour. This is actually my very first Laura Mercier product!


Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Exposed and Natural Beauty - I've been craving these for months! I've literally been waiting for this VIB sale to justify buying more blushes, since I really don't need any more. These are my first Tarte products, and everyone just raves about these blushes. I had to try them out! Essie Button recently reviewed Natural Beauty, so of course I had to pick that one up. 

REN Resurfacing AHA Concentrate - Another product that I've heard rave reviews on! This product gently exfoliates and reduces pore size, fine lines, and increases moisture levels. I tried a sample of this last month, and I quite liked it, so I'm giving the full size bottle a go!

And now onto the samples... 


Michael Kors Gold - Rose Edition Perfume, Caudalie Moisturizing Cream Mask, Korres Sleeping Facial, Benefit Total Moisture Facial Cream, Benefit Watt's Up!, Ojon Rare Blend Oil Total Hair Therapy x 2, Lancome Hypnose Doll Lashes Mascara, Caudalie Nourishing Body Lotion, Clean Rain Perfume, Hourglass Veil Fluid Makeup x 2, Ole Henrickson Truth Creme Advanced Hydration, NARS Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base, and Josie Maran Argan Hot Oil Self-Heating Hair Treatment

I'm super excited about my new goodies! I also received a reusable Sephora tote bag, which contained a lot of the samples. There were a few more things that I wanted that I didn't pick up (Roberto Cavalli perfume, Philosophy Eggnog Shower Gel, Lorac Pro Palette, Caudalie Divine Oil), so we'll see how much self-control I have over the weekend. The VIB sale is going on until Sunday November 11th, so check it out if you haven't already!

Do you already own any of these products? What did you pick up from Sephora's VIB sale? Leave me a comment and we'll chat! :)

      Aw no way! That's too bad :( I know each store was giving out different samples in the bag, but that sucks that you didn't get any at all!
