2015 Sephora VIB Sale and Black Friday Haul

I hope all of you had a lovely Christmas this year - I spent mine with family starting with Christmas Service on Christmas Eve and then various family events on the 25th. This is a long overdue post, instead of opting to forego posting this since a significant time has passed since the VIB sale, I decided to still post it and have it count as some light reading for you guys :)

Like always, I take advantage of this sale to stock up on items that I always use, and also on Christmas gifts :) This year was like no other, I picked up a few items I have always wanted to try out, and also, since Christmas has now passed, I also picked up a few gifts for my friends and family.

Ever since being selected by Influenster to try out the Laneige Water Gel Sleeping Mask, I was hooked on Laneige products. My husband needed some toner, so I picked up the toner and sparkling foam cleanser. 

I actually had picked up TWO of the Bumble and Bumble thickening dryspun finish sets, however one of them was already gifted to my friend, and the other is for me. The Holiday season is the perfect time to pick up value sets - for the same price as a stand alone thickening drys spun finish spray, during the holidays in this set, it comes with deluxe thickening shampoo and conditioners. 

The Shiseido Benefiance was a gift for my mom. She had told me that she wanted one, so I took advantage of this 20% off sale to pick one up for her. 

The Tarte palette was for one of my really good friends, Meagan

For those who were invited to the VIB Rouge Pre-Sale event, were handed loot bags that were actually really good this year. I never had the heart to drop $150 on the Fresh Honey Mask, so to get a deluxe sample was like wining the jackpot for me. Also, a few other items included were things that I've wanted to try (Glam Glow eye mask, Benefit Brow) and products I already love (Clinique - Moisture Surge and Kat Von D - lipsticks).

Finally, I picked up the Fresh seaberry hand cream and the Too Faced Hangover Rx Primer for the coming cold winter weather in Toronto :) 

The second haul below is from the Black Friday sale - at $13 each, I also picked up the below items as advanced holiday gifts for people as well. In addition, there was a Sephora promotion where you got the below sample bag included with your purchase. 

Note to you guys, always take advantage of Sephora promotions. to get a sample bag with a makeup bag is always a nice bonus.

Come back soon to see my 2015 Favorites Round-Up.

Until next time - XO, M.
