What I Purchased During Sephora’s Holiday Sale
The most wonderful time of the year brings about Sephora’s Holiday Sale. For anyone who may not know about it, it’s just like the Sephora spring sale where depending on your BeautyInsider status, you get a certain percentage off of anything you buy (there are a few exceptions). Rouge status gets 20% off and early access 10/30 VIB status gets 15% off and early access 11/3 Insider status gets 10% off and regular access 11/5 Here’s what I picked this holiday season: FENTY BEAUTY - Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer - finally decided to try this based on the hype and man o man this did not disappoint! It smells stupid good, has a buttery consistency and is not the least bit sticky, and the colors are just gorgeous. I picked up Fenty Glow and loved it so much that I went back and got the color Fu$$y too! Buy it! Needless to say I just had to buy the new Fenty Glossy Posse Holoidaze edition which is four new mini gloss bombs. Did I tell you I have a problem with this gloss? I’m addicted. HOURGLASS - Ambient Lighting Powder - I’ve wanted to try this for a while and so far so good. They are very subtle powders that are finely milled and have the slightest amount of reflecting particles in it. I like to use this on “less is more” make-up days: BB cream and this powder, paired with a brow gel and lip balm and BOOM - I woke up like this 🎶 HOURGLASS - Veil Translucent Setting Powder - I’ve been in the market for a new setting powder for quite sometime. I had been using the Coty Airspun and really only using it to set my under eye concealer, but aside from the fact that there is talc in (trying to cut that out as much as possible) I found that it was not fine enough and would cake in my creases. This is so light and soft and works well for a light touch-up during the day. HOURGLASS - Arch Brow Shaping Gel- I haven’t actually used this, but I have high hopes based on reviews. My brows are really the most important part of my “getting ready” routine, but sometimes I don’t want to do a fully filled in brow and I want something easy and not as time consuming (I extremely detailed with my brows). I’ll do an update on this when I post my brow products!! Of course I picked up a few refills of some tried and true products that I constantly repurchase (coming soon to a Cherie post near you). belif - Eye Bomb Gwp the best hydrating eye cream that I have ever tried. ANASTASIA Beverly Hills - Brow Wiz Mechanical Brow Pencil - my favorite brow product of all time. FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair Cream - my winter moisturizer. What did you buy with your discount?! Let me know 😻

Sephora Holiday Sale Haul
This is 35! My husband recently joked “is the fact that you’re turning 35 the reason why you got so into skincare recently?”. The truth is probably yes. The Sephora Holiday Sale lined up perfectly with my 35th birthday this week, so I bought myself some new products to try. Happy Birthday to me 🥳 Here’s what I got & why & first impressions: Sephora Birthday Gift Milk MAKEUP - Lip + Cheek Shade Werk. I used this product today and loved it! I will add it to my minimal daily make-up routine. Can be easily thrown into your purse. Adds a pop of colour to my cheeks & lips. I like that it’s matte. Living proof. - 5-in-1 Styling Treatment from Rewards Bazar. Looking to test how this product compares to MOROCCANOIL - Curl Defining Cream that I have been using recently. 99% of the time I add some product to damp hair and let it air dry. SEPHORA COLLECTION - Bright Future Gel Serum Concealer I purchased this as a dupe to the Nars Concealer. It retails for $18 vs. $39 for Nars. It went on very smooth. I loved the feel. But it was lighter coverage than I was hoping. I felt like I could still see my dark circles under the concealer. Im looking forward to introducing an acid into my routine. I bought The Ordinary - Lactic Acid 10% + HAbecause it was less than $10, so it let’s me try something new in my routine without a huge investment. I also got Kate Somerville - Liquid ExfoliKate Triple Acid Resurfacing Treatmentfrom the Rewards Bazar. I will try the products separately and see which product I prefer. You can look forward to a comparison post in the future :) Similarly, I’ve been reading a lot about Vitamin C and really wanted to add a Vit C serum to my AM routine. I was debating a couple different products, but the prices were $80+ and I found the reviews really mixed. So, I decided to start with The Ordinary - Ascorbic Acid 8% + Alpha Arbutin 2%it was less than $10 and includes Alpha Arbutin, which is great for hyperpigmentation. I will let you know what I think! Next, I picked up GLAMGLOW - Youthmud Glow Stimulating & Exfoliating Treatment Mask from the Rewards Bazar. Tingled a lot the first couple minutes. It did leave my skin looking very smooth & clean. But, it’s $99 for 3.5oz! So, I won’t be running out to purchase. Finally, I decided buy the hyped LANEIGE - LANEIGE Lip Sleeping Mask Lips are one of the areas I’ve neglected. I’ve started to notice my lips aren’t as full and losing their colour. I was hesitant to spend $26 on a lip mask, but Im happy that it’s a good size jar that will last a while. Love the little applicator brush. It feels very luxurious applying it. I like the consistency. Not as thick as I was expecting. I like the berry scent. Dare I say after two nights of using it my lips feel more hydrated, plumper and even younger!

KIEHL'S HOLIDAY SET !!
I got the Kiehl's - Brighten Up & Glow from Sephora and it's such an awesome value!! It's $99 for four products - and they're not sample sized!! Here's what you get: - Kiehl's - Ultra Facial Cleanser2.5 oz/75 ml (half size, $12) - Kiehl's - Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution1 oz/30ml (full size, $56) - Kiehl's - Creamy Eye Treatment With Avocado0.5oz/14ml (mini, $32) - Kiehl's - Ultra Facial Cream1.7oz/50ml (full size, $32) Total value: $132 Actual price: $99 You save: $33 - it's like getting the eye treatment or ultra facial cream for free! It's really good if you've either never tried Kiehl's before (like me) or if you love Kiehl's and need a restock and want to save money. It's an awesome gift set and has so many good things. I've tried the ultra facial cream and I LOVE IT! I have yet to try the eye treatment and the dark spot corrector, but I tried the cleanser and so far it's nice, but I need to use it more times to see if there's any affects.

⭐️ TooFaced Mini Lip Injection Holiday Set ⭐️
This is my first time ever using any type of lip plumper. For context, I have super sensitive skin & my lips are no exception. I’ve always been cautious as to what I apply on my lips but lately have been wanting to look of more plump & juicy lips. My bff got me this as a gift & I’m super in love with everything about it but I held off using it for a few days until I thought “the only way I can tell if I have a reaction to it is by actually using it!” So I took a deep breath & applied the clear one. I braced myself for the stoning that everyone always talks about but all I got was a semi-intense tingling feeling. I did notice a little something different about my lips but it was definitely not a “before & after” situation. It did make my lips feel more firm for a little bit though but that feeling wore off. Final thoughts: super cute, not as intense as I thought it would be, would make a great gift! & they smell delicious! Too Faced - Limited Edition Lip Injection Extreme Plump & Tasty Trio Set

Tarte Holiday sets!!!
Today I picked up Tarte's Tartelette give, gift and get holiday set. I am sooo excited to use this! out of all the holiday releases this one caught my eye the most and it was in stock so I had to purchase! I initially wasn't going to purchase because I didn't really like how lil juicy looked and the shades. after swatching the colors, I think it's going to be a fun palette to use! This set includes three different palettes, which are supposed to be mini versions of already existing palettes except the lil juicy one. This set includes: -lil bloom which is a neutral and everyday palette. -lil toasted which is a warm palette -lil juicy which is a more rosy palette I am also thinking of picking ul the blush set. Have you guys tried these palettes yet? what do you think? 💄😍
