Sephora Sinnage!

One corner of my bedroom is currently home to “things I have purchased and have yet to blog about”. Do any of you have one of those corners? It both excites and scares me a little! This particular round of sinnage is the result of about 2 months of lusting and when I think about it, is full of things I love and would use.

Sugar Addiction Mini Lip Collection ($58)

This was THE thing I was pining for the most and gave me the perfect opportunity to try each of the colours in mini form. As many of you know, Fresh products all smell amazing and these tinted lip balms are no exception! They are also incredibly smooth and hydrating and give your lips a wonderful colour!

Femme Fatale Collection Lip Elixirs in Salted Caramel ($9)

If you enjoy different and adventurous scents, Tokyomilk is your brand! This lip balm is clear and also comes in scents like “Clove Cigarette” and “Absinthe”. “Salted Caramel” is a concoction of sweet cream, sea salt, caramelized sugar and toasted vanilla bean. You can probably all guess that it smells DIVINE! It smells just like the real thing and not fake and sweet at all! Sephora is constantly sold out of these and I was on the waitlist twice before I managed to get my hands on the flavour I wanted. The price point is also very reasonable making this product a great stocking stuffer!

Make Up For Ever Aqua Rouge in Raspberry ($27)

I have reviewed this product before in the colour Red, so I won’t bore you with the details, but I love this product so much, I had to get another colour that wasn’t quite as bright! Raspberry is still a fantastic pop of colour, but doesn’t have the same kind of shock value as Red. I think I have to get a nude shade now…

Urban Decay Make Your Makeup Last Kit (500 point perk)

After hearing so many good things about the setting spray, I knew this was the time to redeem those points! This kit has a full size primer potion and eyeliner and a travel size version of the setting spray which I look forward to trying out!

Samples with Purchase!

I forgot to remove the “Happy Birthday Sugar” gift from my cart before checking out as I already received this gift for my birthday back in July so I consider myself a very lucky girl that I received another one! The samples also included all three of the Stila eye shadow palette cards that were part of last month’s Topboxes.

I have never been a Sephora VIB (I know, crazy huh?) and am currently $22 away…I have a feeling I’m going to be one by the end of the year though ;-) I’m just way too close to pass up the opportunity!

  1. I have a container of stuff that I'm currently testing or is relatively new, and it's a bit overwhelming for me too. My original Fresh Sugar lip balm from the birthday gift ended up getting completely mangled because it is so soft and I keep it in my pocket. :-( It made me sad.

    1. It's totally overwhleming!!! It's such a first world problem so I try not to complain ;-)

      Oh no!!! I would be so sad if that happened to my lip balm! They are quite soft though and break easily...

  2. So do you have to reach a certain purchase amount before you become a vib? I am going to pick up my Sugar birthday gift this week! I wish it included the honey shade because I think I would LOVE it. You got me curious about that lip balm thing, I absolutely love lips balms/ lip treatments, and it's a fairly reasonable price too:)

    1. Honey was what I REALLY wanted to try!
      You have to spend $350 from Jan - Dec and you qualify for that current year plus the next!

  5. so jealous of your Sugar lip treatment mini-set. I have been wanting to try that. I use Rose for a few years and as much as I love it, want to try other shades.

    1. I deliberated for SO LONG about whether to get the whole set, but I'm glad I went ahead with it. All of the colours are wearable and I went through my mini versions from the birthday set in the space of two months, so I know they won't be sitting around!

  6. You picked some great things! I love the Tokyomilk scents... haven't purchased any yet but I'm so tempted! And yes, I have one of those corners... lurking in there are also a few "should I keep this??" purchases!

    1. The MUFE lipstick is absolutely amazing! It lasts and lasts and the colour barely fades if any. LOL, good for you for buying the fresh kit for someone else!! I have no self-control!

  8. Eeep, love all this "sinnage", Jayne! I so want that Fresh set too... they're my favourite lip balms. And lucky you getting some extra with the birthday gift!

  9. The MUFE lipstick looks great! I'm a few 10s away from reaching VIB status as well. I'm pretty sure I'll reach it as well. I can't stay away from that store. lol. x)

    1. Haha, me neither! I will finally be a VIB for the first time in my life!

  10. I picked up a Fresh duo, but I think I might return it for this set instead. I loved the minis! And now that I have finished them, I find myself looking for them haha :).

    Ps, that colour is gorgeous! I was admiring these MUFE lippies the other day but I wasn't sure which shade to get. Torn between a bold shade or a neutral for my first one.

    I wish being a VIB had more perks, like 20% discounts more than twice a year. But you're soo close! And once you do, you can get 10% off your next purchase for more sinnage! :P

    1. I finished the minis from the birthday set so quickly, so I knew the set would be well-loved!

      I would maybe get a more neutral MUFE colour to start off with just to see how you like the wear and texture. THEN, of course you would HAVE TO get a bold red too ;-)

      Oh geez, more sinnage?! Hahahaha! I'll be a VIB very soon...

    1. Salted Caramel is one of the most mouth-watering scents I have ever smelled! It does make me hungry though...

  18. The Urban Decay Perk is pretty cool. Hmmm I about 130ish away. Should I go on a spree? HAHHA nonono I was good this weekend. I hid. I avoided the temptation. And it is because I have one of 'those corners', I makes me overwhelmed and a teeny bit ashamed HAHA ...not really...

    1. I think you should just get the status and have fun with the VIB perks for 2013 ;-) Get gifts for Christmas so that it's not ALL for you! I wanna see what your corner looks like ;-) Mine corner has recently exploded to the whole living room!

  19. nice purchases!
    that sugar set looks so pretty. and the TokyoMilk item does sound like it smells divine! $9 is not bad at all!
    Raspberry is not as bright but still pretty bold! are you wearing it more often now? and the 500 point perk looks great!! i am like 75 points shy of reaching 500... but nowhere near becoming a VIB like you!

    1. It is still pretty bold, so I'm planning on picking up a very neutral colour like a #2 because I can't wear Raspberry all the time...
