Sephora VIB Sale Haul (NARS, REN, Dior, etc.)

Yes, I did just do a mini Sephora haul just a couple of weeks before the VIB sale... As mentioned in that particular post, I had a 10% discount code and wanted to get the items at some discount before they sold out during the VIB.

I didn't really feel like hustling and bustling with the crowds after work, so I had a game plan to just order online.  Plus, this way I would earn an extra 4% cash back through Ebates!

I have another trip to Portland coming up after Christmas, so I was very selective in the chosen items--US prices and no sales tax -- weeeee!  I bought the items if the discounted price was either equivalent or lower than what I would pay in Portland; otherwise, they will be purchased in Portland ;)

So... as expected, the popular items sold out very quickly, so I wasn't able to snag up the Illamasqua cream pigment in Hollow :(

Here's what I picked up:
  • NARS Guy Bourdin promiscuous lip pencil coffret $50 CAD
  • REN micro polish cleanser $36 CAD
  • Shu Uemura eye lash curler $24 CAD
  • Dior Addict lipstick in 643 diablotine $32 CAD
  • Dior Addict lipstick in 465 Singuliere $32 CAD
  • NARS velvet matte lip pencil in Dolce Vita $30 CAD
  • Murad hydro-dynamic ultimate moisturizer sample
  • Korres vitamin e face primer sample
  • Marc Jacobs daisy eau de toilette sample
  • Origins ginzing eye cream sample
  • Philosophy hope in a jar day and night cream sample

What did you haul during the VIB sale?
Any products that I should look at when I'm in Portland next month?

  1. i've thought about ordering online at sephora quite often (b/c online browsing is an awful habit i have) but their $75 min for shipping is a pain in the butt.
    going to portland is so fun! the bf and i took the train down. if you have a chance to do that, you really really should. it is so comfortable and the view down the west coast is stunning!

  2. Great haul! I love Dior Addict lipsticks, they're so perfect! I also use that eyelash curler and it's one of the best beauty tools and lasts for a long time! I got the Tarte thoughtful treasures set and some origins skincare.

  3. I ended up with Philosophy Purity face wash, the Tarte blush palette, Bobbi Brown eye cream and some point perks. The Tarte was the most exciting part of my haul!

  4. nice! i thought about the tarte blush palette for the longest time... but decided to skip it since I already have dollface and i dont use bronzer. im looking to move away from the purity face wash after yearsssssssssss of using it, so i skipped on that too.
