29 October, 2014 Sephora Haul Part #2
Before the beauty enabling begins, have a look at the first part of this epic haul here.
All caught up? Fabulous! Sephora are known for their brilliant skincare sets, and I’d had my eye on the Beauty Unmasked collection – four travel size masks that target various skin concerns, such as dehydration, dullness, acne and large pores.
Included in the set is the Origins Clear Improvements Mask (which I’ll be reviewing on Friday), best suited for oily or acne-prone skin types, Peter Thomas Roth’s Cucumber Gel Mask for dry, sunburnt skin, and GLAMGLOW’s Thirstymud Hydrating Treatment – a teeny size that’s perfect for travelling, or as a night-time moisturiser when you need an intensive boost of hydration. Thirstymud is a seriously gorgeous product – light and gentle yet incredibly nourishing, this smells of coconuts and feels minty and refreshing on the skin. The last mask in the set, which I’ve already reviewed here, is Boscia’s Luminizing Black Mask, a peel-off treatment to restore brightness and clarity. The set is a serious bargain and considering a travel size of the Origins Clear Improvements Mask is £15, you’re getting everything else practically free. You can buy the Beauty Unmasked Value Set here for $29 (or £18).
Another item I was keen to pick up was the Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Exposed. Tamira from Lipstick With Some Sunshine is always raving about this blusher, and it looked like the perfect matte mauve-pink; something that works with every makeup look, be it subtle and fresh, or dolled up and dramatic. The pigmentation is intense without looking streaky and it really does last all day – although I’ve not tested it for the full 12 hours, who has the time? You can buy Tarte’s 12-Hour Blush in Exposed here for $26 (or £16).
The last product in this haul was a freebie from Tarte that I’d wanted to try for AGES, and it’s their Lights, Camera, Flashes mascara. It has a plastic bristle brush which I love for that false lash effect, and I found it held a curl really well. The only downside was that it tended to flake a little, but a lighter application could have probably stopped that from happening – I do love a good 5-6 coats of mascara! You can buy the full-size of Lights, Camera, Flashes here for $23 (£14.30).
I hope you’ve enjoyed my ridiculously large haul – please let me know your thoughts on the products, if you’ve tried any of them, or if you have any recommendations for me!
