Sarah Goes Shopping: Sephora USA & Canada

Everyone loves a good haul post, or at least I know that I love them! When overseas, it's almost impossible to walk past the big shiny Sephora store without going in ... for just a browse ... am I right? Yeah, well that didn't work out too well for me now did it! Well, I'm happy but my bank account is not! This haul was between both the Canada and USA stores, and was over a few different trips! Hope you enjoy. Please let me know if yo would like an in depth review or swatches of any of these products!

This is the second post in my Sarah Goes Shopping Series! Check out some more haul posts HERE.

Stila Eternal Love Liquid Lipstick Set - I actually was hoping to buy the Eternally Yours Liquid Lipstick Set which contains six shades but it wasn't available at the stores I visited. This set contains minis in the shades Ricco, Beso and Baci and all three were shades that I really liked!

Too Faced French Kisses Melted Set - I also can't see this on the Sephora site anymore but I've included a link to the product from the Too Faced website. This set includes four deluxe mini melted lipsticks include two new metallic shades. The shades are Melted Metallic Peony, Melted Chihuahua, Melted Metallic Macaron, and Melted Berry.

Tarte Amazonian Clay Waterproof 12-Hr Concealer - I don't have many products from Tarte, but I thought the sounds of a 12hr waterproof concealer could come in handy during Brisbane's hot hot summer. I've only used this a few times but it is super creamy and blendable and the applicator is really easy to wind up and down. I got the shade light-medium beige, which is a good match for me.

Bare Minerals Well Rested Face & Eye Brightener - I've heard so much about the Well Rested Powder from Bare Minerals which many people swear by for setting their undereye concealer. I thought this looked like an interesting product and I haven't heard much about it which made me even more intrigued. It's a universal shade for highlighting and brightening and is said to minimize dark spots, wrinkles, lines, and discolorations over time.

Kat Von D Monarch Eyeshadow Palette - I picked this up because I have nothing like it already in my collection and it really caught my eye. I first had picked up the Shade + Light Eye Palette but this one just appealed  to me more.

Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in Trooper - I already had this one in a mini size that I was obsessed with so I had to take the opportunity to purchase the full-size.

Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipstick in Magick - It was SO hard to only walk away with one shade but I decided to go with this one which is described as sweet dusty pink which is exactly my kind of everyday lip shade that I knew I would use a lot. It is pigmented and contains a very fine shimmer which I really like.

Sephora Wishes Come True Eye and Face Makeup Palette - This was one of those purchases where I swatched the palette and couldn't walk away without it. The eyeshadows are extremely pigmented and buttery and the palette was only $20 CAD which is extremely cheap! It contains six eyeshadows, a universal blush shade and two highlighting powders. I thought the packaging was super cute and I am happy I picked this up.

Bite Beauty Best Bite Rewind - This would make a super cute Christmas present if you have a friend who wouldn't mind trying out Bite Beauty. I already have some lipsticks from this brand that I adore, and have been wanting to try the matte crème lip crayons so I thought this was perfect for me. It contains four minis in the shades Café, Torte, Coulis and Aubergine.

Bite Beauty Bite Mix and Mingle in Pepper/Café and Pomegranate/Palomino - Again, I just feel like these duos are a great way for you to get to try out multiple shades from Bite Beauty without having to purchase a full-sized lipstick. These limited edition holiday pairings were created to allow customers to get a feel for Bite Beauty lipsticks and offer complementary shade choices. These were a little smaller than I was expecting but I still found them easy to apply and great to stick into a clutch or travel bag if you were short on space. I went with a nude pairing with a light peachy nude and darker nude and a bright set featuring a cherry red shade & bright magenta.

Buxom May Contain Nudity Eyeshadow Palette - This is my first product from Buxom and I was really impressed with the pigmentation of the eyeshadows when swatching in store. They have customisable palettes that you can create in similar cases to this one, however the nude palette was really nice and sort of spoke to me so that was the one I chose. I love how compact and travel friendly this palette is and great for anyone that loves warm neutrals like me. It's pretty amazing that you can still use the palette to add new eyeshadows once you run out of any of the 
existing shades.

Too Faced Beautifully Blushed & Bronzed Set - I just had to pick this up because I thought it was such a great value considering all the different products that you get to try. I don't own any of the Too Faced Love Flush Blushes, and this set allows you to try two shades - Love Hangover and Justify My Love. You also get minis of the Too Faced Sun Bunny Bronzer in Natural and Chocolate Soleil Bronzer in Medium/Deep Matte and a Mini Teddy Bear Hair Flatbuki Brush. I love this set and am super happy I was able to snatch one up.

Elizabeth and James Nirvana Mini Rollerball Set - I featured the white scent in my recent October & November Favourites, but overall this is a great value set ($25 USD) for anyone wanting to try these two scents without having to commit first to the full-sized bottles.

Well, that's it for my combined Sephora haul! I hope you like some of the products I've picked up. If you own any of these, it would be great to know what you think. If you'd like individual reviews for any of these products, just let me know! I'm in the midst of testing a few but it may take me a while to get in depth reviews out for all of these!

What have you recently bought? Have you made a Sephora purchase lately?
