Oh yes, I’ve done some shopping. The VIB Rouge 20% off sale came around and I got just a little bit tempted. Although originally my cart had approximately a million things in it, I kept whittling it down to the select few.Yet Another Sneaky Sephora Haul - Laura Mercier Candleglow Sheer Perfecting Powder, Hourglass Ambient Lighting Bronzer

Laura Mercier Candleglow Sheer Perfecting Powder

I hadn’t seen much about this one before spotting it on the Sephora site but when a Laura Mercier product offers glow in the form of a sheer, lightweight powder, I’m on board. I have been loving this one daily since it arrived, it’s subtle on the skin, it never looks powdery and manages to make my skin look just a little more luminous.

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder

I picked up a travel size because, although I’ve never been blown away with the Hourglass Ambient products, there was something about this bronzer that caught my attention. So far I’m not sure what to think of it, it’s probably a little too intense for me but applied lightly, it does add a bit of sun-kissed glow.

Urban Decay Naked Ultimate Basics

The second I saw the announcement for this all-matte palette, I knew it had to be mine. Beyond the beautiful packaging, the shades inside are right up my alley. I’ve played with this one a couple of times now. I’m really impressed with how pigmented the shades are – definitely giving my other favourite all-matte palettes a run for their money.

Yet Another Sneaky Sephora Haul - Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture Lipstick in 70 Le Nu, Huda Beauty Lip Contour Set

Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture Star Clash Edition Lipstick

This was actually the bit that started off this whole order. I tend to be drawn to anything with star prints on it so this luxe lipstick was simply a must for me. I got it in a beautiful nude shade – totally my type. Realistically, I’m not sure if I’ll really be wearing this one much, rather than just staring at it.

Huda Beauty Lip Contour Set in Trophy Wife & Muse

Although I haven’t well and truly given into the hype surrounding the Huda Beauty range, I saw this liner & liquid lipstick set and thought it’d be the perfect set to introduce me to the formula – particularly as both of the colours in the set were right up my alley. I haven’t had a proper chance to test it but first impressions are looking very good – comfortable, long-wearing & easy to apply.

Boscia Charcoal Makeup Melter Cleansing Oil-Balm
Stila Huge Extreme Lash Mascara

My two little points bonuses this time around came from Boscia and Stila. The full-size Boscia cleanser was actually sitting my cart before I spotted it in the bonuses section so I can’t wait to try it out. Everyone knows I’m a sucker for a cleansing balm. As for the Stila mascara, I have a high hopes. The brush looks very similar to the Too Faced BTS mascara so I expect good things to come.

  • Oooh lovely haul. Curious to hear your thoughts on the Huda Liquid lippies and the Boscia cleansing balm! I wonder if the LM candlelight powder is similar to the Hourglass ones? And omg the packaging of that YSL lipstick is gorgeous!

    • Will hopefully get thoughts up on everything soon! And yeah, that’s the kind of thing I was expecting but it’s a little more pigmented than the Hourglass offerings, I find!

  • This was a dangerous post to read because I LOVE the look of that palette and the LM powder…. EPPP

    That Stila mascars is actually really good! It thickens and lengthens and volumizing. I also want to try out some Huda Beauty products especially after hearing great things about the liquid lipsticks. I hope you do a review!
    Great post!

    I really liked the Stila Huge Extreme Lash! It’s very similar to Better than Sex so if you like BTS you’ll probably love it. Great haul!
