SEPHORA HAUL! [March 2017]

Alright guys, my favorite kind of post is HERE for your viewing pleasure!

I recently went to Sephora because I had a VIB Rouge 10% off coupon... and needless to say, I went a little crazy. I got a nice mixture of makeup and skincare; some products are re-buys of my faves and some are BRAND SPANKIN' NEW!

1. Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Universal Daily Peel Pads - This is a two-step chemical peel system that helps diminish the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, texture, and especially dryness. These babies are EXPENSIVE ($88 for 35 treatments) but I use them every other day and they last me about 2-3 months.  It is my fourth time repurchasing them and I am totally committed.

2. Drunk Elephant C-Firma Day Serum - This is a vitamin-C serum packed with antioxidants, fruit enzymes, and anti-aging ingredients.  I hear all of you screaming, "lady, are you insane?!" when you see the price tag on this skin care item as well (it's a whopping $80). BUT HEAR ME OUT, OKAY?! Did you know that Vitamin C is good for reversing sun damage? Yeah, for anyone who chronically tanned in high school to embody their favorite jersey shore character - THIS POST IS FOR YOU! Did you also know that Vitamin-C is EXTREMELY unstable? So all of those companies packaging them in clear glass containers with droppers are SCREWING YOU! Air and light can break down Vitamin C within a month, whereas this is in an airtight, light-proof container with a pump.  It lasts me about 6 months and does not go bad within that time.  Watch: Stephanie Nicole's Morning Routine Video for more info!

3. Smashbox x Casey Holmes Spotlight Palette in "Pearl" - A 3-pan highlight palette created by Youtube Influencer, Casey Holmes. The formula is soft and creamy, no glitter in two out of the three shades (y'all KNOW how I feel about glitter) but very glowy.  I've used it once already and so far, I like it. More in depth review coming this Friday!

4. BECCA First Light Filter Face Primer - if you've read my holy grail products, then you already know that me and BECCA are in a pretty seriously relationship... I got a sample of this product as a GWP (Gift with Purchase) and I haven't looked back - I use it every single day. Obsessed is an understatement.

5. Bite Beauty High Pigment Pencil in "Madeira" - My PERFECT nudey-pink! Beautiful, pigmented, creamy, and long-lasting formula.
I have yet to find something from Bite that I don't love and this is no exception.  I don't hear many people talking about them either, which is crazy to me because it is one of my favorite formulas.

6. Sephora Collection Ultra Shine Lip Gel in "Pin Up Pink" - I received a mini version of this lip gloss in a goodie bag from one of Sephora's Exclusive VIB Events and I surprisingly love it! It is the perfect amount of shine and color for natural makeup days and very hydrating, so I purchased the full size.

7. Belif The True Cream Moisturizing Bomb - My third time repurchasing this heavy-duty moisturizer.  I have SUPER dry skin and I use this every night mixed with a couple drops of FRESH Seaberry Oil. It is the perfect consistency to keep me well-hydrated during the winter months for a full 24 hours.

8. Anastasia Beverly Hills Brush #23 - I've seen so many people raving about this brush, specifically for highlighting, so I decided to give it a go.  It has a sturdy handle and the bristles are super soft.  It packs product on so beautifully! Love it.

9. Milk Makeup Eye Pigment in "After Party" - A really pretty, light pink cream shadow.  This color is everything I had hoped the Estee Edit Fluid Metal Shadow in "Party of 1" was going to be! It is beautiful; I got so many compliments when I wore it.

I hope you enjoyed this beauty haul as much as I did.  If you have any requests for products you'd like me to try or an in-depth review on any of the ones listed above, leave it in the comment section down below! XOXO
