Yes I took advantage of Sephora’s VIB Rouge 15% sale (10% for VIB) which runs from 4/12 to 4/21/15. Yes I’m a makeup junkie. Yes I am enabling you. I will do separate reviews in the coming days but offhand, these are the products I’ve been wanting to own.

Hourglass Ambient Bronzer Radiant Bronzer Light. Newly-released and overly-hyped, this bronzer is available in two shades. I hope it receives the same adulation from me, crossed-fingers.  

Kat Von D Shade + Light Eye Contour Palette. I know it’s another neutral palette but I’m curious as a moth to get my hands on this KVD beauty!

Marc Jacobs Beauty Brow Wow Defining Longwear Pencil. Superfluous, basically it’s a newly-launched brow pencil from Marc Jacobs. Let’s see if I will love it the same way as the eyeliners (hyped numerous times on the blog).

Dolce and Gabbana Matte Lipstick Dolce Fire. I reviewed Dolce Inferno and Dolce Ruby few days ago. I added one more shade because I am head over heels in love with the formula and quality. Buy it!

Caudalie Instant Detox Mask (deluxe sample/freebie). I’m a sucker for masks so I chose this sample, so far so good. In fact I may purchase!

Finally here are my recommendations, otherwise known as products-I-swear-by! Product reviews are linked for your further reference.

Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Night Cap Overnight Perfector. It’s great for second-day hair or in-between washing. See my review plus hair tutorial here.

Guerlain Terracota Joli Teint Powder Duo. A Summer 2015 release, this bronzer is subtler than the original Guerlain Terracota. Available in four shades, it gives just the right amount of sun-kissed gorgeousness! I reviewed and swatched Natural Blondes.

Marc Jacobs Highliner Gel Eye Crayon. This is the best budge-proof eyeliner I have tried, ever. I reviewed Blacquer, (Luna)tic, (Plum), O(vert), Ro(cocoa), and Th(ink).

Murad Invisiblur Perfecting Shield Broad Spectrum SPF30. It’s a primer, moisturizer and sunscreen. Yep, it’s a 3-in-1 wonder that will totally shorten your makeup routine. Full review here.

Skin Inc Holiday Glow Set. Of course glowing skin should be year-round. This set preps your face kinda like a quick facial! It has serum, mask and peel. Check out my review here.

Marc Jacobs New Nudes Sheer Lip Gel. Perfect semi-gloss finish which gives new meaning to sheer, it ain’t sheer, at least for Understudy (worn and swatched here). 

Enjoy shopping, don’t forget to use code ROUGELOVE to avail 15% discount! Want cash back? use E-bates.

Ready, set, splurge!

    That's one fabulous haul! I wanted to grab that new HG bronzer too but I literally just bought another one from Givenchy a couple weeks ago, so maybe I'll pick it up once I get tired of that one.

    Yes, the Kat Von D palette is very intriguing. I didn't see it at the store yesterday, but my Sephora is small so they're missing lots of the goodies. Eager for your review

    I WANT the Murad Invisiblur 3-in-1 primer.

  4. April 17, 2015 / 3:03 pm

    That KVD palette is on my list. As is the Hourglass bronzer in Luminous Bronze. I basically want #allofthehourglass

  5. April 17, 2015 / 7:51 pm

    That KVD palette needs to be in my life. Still not sure how I feel about the Hourglass bronzers yet – Can't wait to read your review

    GMTA! I picked up that palette too 🙂 Love it!

    Looking forward to your review of the Kat Von D palette. Great haul!

  8. April 18, 2015 / 3:14 pm

    I've been looking at that Kat Von D palette so I can't wait to see your review. I'm currently using Murad Invisiblur and I'm quite impressed.

    Ooh – that Kat Von D Palette is intriguing me for sure. It's gorgeous. 🙂
