New Year, New Makeup |Sephora Haul


Whenever I receive Christmas money I try to be reasonable and rational about how I’m going to spend it. Most times I spend it on textbooks for the upcoming semester #yawn.

This year I spent that sh*t on makeup #TreatYoSelf

I logged into my Sephora account so quick! I literally felt like a rich person. I blew all of my Christmas money on makeup and in no way, shape or form am I mad about it. Minus a mini set of liquid lipsticks from colourpop, no one got me any makeup so I was a bit thirsty to feed my addiction.

Mainly I just wanted to stock up on a new contour kit and a new brow product. I am obsessed with eye shadow palettes so I had to grab a few of them too. ANDDD I really wanted to invest in some blush since I never wear any.

Being a VIP Rouge member at Sephora (hair flip), has its many perks. I was able to get flash 2 day shipping. My package took no time to get delivered.

Now on to the good stuff.

  1. Too Faced: Sweet Peach Eye Shadow Palette

Yes, I am basic. Yes, I copped the sweet peach palette that every beauty blogger is raving about. Yes, it actually does smell like sweet peaches (sue me!).

But seriously, it is beyond adorable. How could you expect me to see this palette online and NOT add it to cart? Spring will be here in no time and #glamrika has to stay ahead of the curve anyways so I bought it.

I have yet to play with this, but when I do! Just wait, you’ll see.

2. Tarte: Makeup Shayla Contour Kit

I could not go into the new year without supporting my makeup mama, Makeup Shayla. I love her and I’m so proud of all that she has accomplished. Working with a big brand is huge!

I’ve only tried this palette twice and so far so good. The contour shades are cool toned, so it’s going to give you that “I haven’t eaten in 3 days” look.

 I have yet to try the blush & highlight shades but if they are as pigmented as the contour shades then I know it’s a winner.

3. Tarte: Pro Makeup Palette

I’ve been dreaming of the moment where I could finally afford this palette and add it to my collection. I saw the colors at Sephora a while back and instantly had creative visions of the looks I could create with this.

4. Stila: Here Comes The Sun Set

This set was a impulsive “add to cart” moment. I was shopping around for one last thing (knowing I didn’t need anything else). It was on sale, and I took it as a sign from the summer god to grab this now so I can glow later.


The kit comes with a liquid luminizer, a bronzer, a creamy brown eyeliner pencil and a peachy lipgloss.

The liquid luminizer (no need to be fancy, it’s a highlighter) is on the lighter side, and isn’t as golden and bronzey as I thought, but  it still blends beautifully. I am putting this one to the side for now, just until the season changes.

5. Anastasia Beverly Hills: Brow Definer

As much as I love dip brow by ABH, the product dries out and that can be so frustrating. Also, I feel like dip brow is so dark and defined. I kind of wanted something that was a bit more light weight and natural. So far, so good.

6. Nars: Narsissist Unfiltered Cheek Palette

I am almost too shook to even swatch this. The colors are popping. The packaging is stunning. The second I saw this online I knew I had to have it. Even if I end up hating this palette, I may still keep it around for decorative reasons (lol jk I love money too much).

7. Too Faced: Chocolate Bar Eye Palette

Lately I’ve been experimenting with more color when I do my eye shadow, which is fine, but my heart belongs to neutral tones. I have had yet to really own a neutral palette and I am hoping that this one will become my go-to.


So far, I am satisfied with almost everything I purchased.



Even with all of my new additions, I still have storage space on my diy vanity.

I plan on updating this post sometime soon giving my review/1st impressions on the products. In the meantime, which items are you craving to try?

For me, its the sweet peach palette. It is so beautiful and I really hope it lives up to the hype.
