Sephora VIB Goodies!

Like all other makeup junkies, I partook in the Sephora VIB Sale this past April.  Now that I have had the chance to use these products, I can give my full opinion of them!  First of all, I love the Hourglass Ambient Light Palette.  This is the first highlighter I’ve owned that I truly love.  It is expensive, but the glow that I get from it is worth the hype!  Second, the Kat Von D Shade and Light Eye Palette is to die for!  I was not planning on making this purchase, but I did and I don’t regret it at all!!!  I haven’t used it incredibly much, but the couple of times that I have…I have truly enjoyed this one like all the other Kat Von D Palettes.  The eyeshadows are highly pigmented…just gorgeous!  Another addition to my collection is the Laura Mercier Eye Art Artist Palette.  Let me tell the truth…I have been lusting over this palette.  Unfortunately I found my love of makeup too late to purchase it.  I was ecstatic when I saw that it was being re-released and I was going to be able to purchase it!  I love the shadows.  Since I have green eyes and brown hair, purple and brown eyeshadows are my absolute favorites it’s perfect for me.  I haven’t had much time to play with these palettes and create new looks with them, so I love to go to YouTube and find beauty bloggers who create looks that I can use.  I have been in love with Marc Jacobs Le Marc Lip Creme lipsticks since I received Kiss Kiss Bang Bang as a sample for a 100 point perk through Sephora.  I ordered Infamous during the sale….and it lives up to it’s name.  My favorite lipstick ever!  So smooth, creamy, and opaque.  Lastly, I ordered the Laura Mercier Bronzer in Ritual.  I was intrigued by this bronzer and was worried that it might look orange on my fair skin and some other reviewers had stated.  It really doesn’t though.  All in all, I was very, very pleased with my purchases.  I cannot wait to play with the eyeshadow palettes more!  I threw a couple of MAC lipsticks that I purchased in the picture as well.  I bought the shades Twig and Syrup.  So far, I love them both!  Twig is a pinky-nude, while Syrup is a light pink.  Beautiful colors!
