A very close friend of mine gave me a gift voucher from Sephora for my birthday, but she didn’t realize that I could redeem the voucher in the U.S. stores or for delivery only in the U.S only. So this voucher kept sitting in my inbox for a few months until one day when my sister told me that one of her very close friends, who lives in New York is coming back for winter break to India and she is willing to get my Sephora order. I literally screamed with joy. I quickly went on to the Sephora website, kept adding things to my cart, then removing it and then finally after about 2 to 3 days I placed my order. So here is what I ordered.
Orgins Face Masks
I feel we don’t get good face masks in India. So whenever I am going abroad I like to stock up on face masks the most out of all skin care items. I got the Origins Original Skin Retexturizing Mask with Rose Clay and Origins Out of Trouble 10 Minute Mask to Rescue Problem skin. I haven’t used Origins’ face masks before, but have heard a lot of good things about them. I wanted to go for the REN Glycol Lactic Radiance Renewal Mask, which I have used and loved, but instead decided to try a new one this time.
Sephora Collection Cream Lip Stain 05 Infinite Rose
I have used these before and absolutely love the formula. So wanted one in a nude shade.
Sephora Multitasker Complexion Brush
I wanted to try out brushes from Sephora. So thought of giving this a go. When I travel, I don’t like to carry 5-6 different brushes. I like when brushes can be used to apply a few different products.
Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit Palette
I had 150 dollars to spend and I knew I wanted to invest in a good face palette. I fell in love with this one the minute I saw it on the website. It was quite expensive, say 80 dollars, but trust me its worth every penny. I did read a few reviews on it before buying, the only negative point that was written about it was that the quantity of the products is very less. But for me, I have never finished an entire blush till now or a bronzer. So I thought I don’t need to worry about this and it is the perfect way to try out different products.
Rest of these are samples that I got. I must say they are pretty generous with their samples. I also got two makeup pouches with samples inside as I used some coupons. Amongst other things, I have got a very generous sample of the Lancome Hypnosis Mascara, the Nars Audacious Mascara, Nude Rescue Oil, GlamGlow Cleanser, Urban Decay Makeup Setting Spray. And lots of perfume samples. I like to carry these perfume samples while travelling as they do not take up any space and last a good 3-4 uses.
Sorry to disappoint because this was not a huge haul. I actually ordered just 5 things as most of my money went in the Houglass palette. But the samples have made up for it. Do let me know in case you want me to review any of these products in detail.
