A "Sephora Haul" With First Impressions

I check the Sephora website as often as I check my email, so another cheeky beauty order was inevitable. My last haul was in November, (here's the Link) if you fancy a nosy, and I feel like a reasonable amount of time has passed to make this one justified, right? So instead of just showing you what I bought, I thought I would give a few things a try first and then give you my first impressions, so lets get started. Honestly though, I think this post should be called "Claire buys more liquid lipsticks" because oops I did it again!

Sephora Collection Mud Mask Purifying & Mattifying | Link
A girl can never have enough masks, right? You only get one face after all! I've only used it once so far, but I can already tell it's gonna be a winner. It really gives your pores a good clean without leaving your skin tight and dry. It's also pretty inexpensive, as face masks go.

Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Shampoo | Link
I'm a huge fan of the Living Proof 5 in 1 Styling Treatment, so I fancied giving the shampoo from the same line a whirl. I've only tried it once so far, but I wasn't blown away. Shampoos can sometimes take a few uses before you can really form an opinion, so I will persevere with this one and I'll let you know.

This sounded like an amazing idea in theory. A dry makeup removing sponge, which you just swipe your brush on to remove any colour. In actuality I found it quite time consuming, the colour in my brushes just didn't want to come out. This doesn't do anything a regular old kitchen sponge would do, so this one is a miss for me (sob).

Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder

I've been desperate to try this setting powder after seeing it all over YouTube, and the miniature size was a great excuse. Even after a few applications, I think I can say it may be replacing my other setting power, it's so light on the skin.

Sephora Cream Lip Stain in 13 Marvelous Mauve | Link
I blame Allana Davison for this purchase, that girl can seriously rock a nude lip and considering my liquid lipstick obsession, you know, you've seen "this post", if not ahem... I just had to add this shade to my collection.

Too Faced French Kisses Melted Liquified Lipstick Set
Too Faced French Kisses Melted Liquified Lipstick Set which includes: Melted Metallic Peony, Melted Chihuahua, Melted Metallic Macaron & Melted Berry | Link
This Christmas set was a complete impulse purchase, but from the outset I'm not a huge fan of the packaging. They look cute with gold lids, but the sponge applicator doesn't make for easy application, a few shades can be a bit streaky, so I'll get back to you.

Listen up fellow Liquid Lipstick lovers, Sephora now sell a few shades of the ABH Liquid Lipsticks so, of course I had to pick one up and oh is it a beaut! It's described as an "intense watermelon" and I definitely agree with that. It's so comfortable on the lips and the pigmentation is on par with my favourite Stila ones.

Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in A-Go-Go | Link
This shade is a true bright orange, a bit out of my comfort zone, but I was feeling a little daring and I clearly couldn't just buy one LL, I have to buy them in even numbers haha.

Marc Jacobs Poutliner Longwear Lip Liner Pencil in Primrose | Link
Another impulsive act of pure curiosity. This lip liner is actually a dead ringer for Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk, which if I had known, I probably wouldn't have ordered it. Yes it is super creamy, but the colours are so close I certainly didn't need both. Oh well, no point crying over split milk, or in this case...lipstick!

Liquid Lipstick Swatches
Primerose | A-Go-Go | Carina | 13 Marvelous Mauve | Melted Metallic Peony | Melted Chihuahua | Melted Metallic Macaron | Melted Berry.

I would definitely say this "Haul" was successful, a girl can never have enough liquid lipsticks am I right?

P.S People don't tell you how hard it is to write with chalk!

What beauty products have you picked up recently? Let me know...

XOXO Claire



  1. OMG you bought sooooo much good stuff! I would love to order but I always feel so overwhelmed when I'm on their website xx

  3. Great haul! I need to get on the liquid lipstick train because I've only tried L'Oreal so far! I'm going to the U.S. in a few months so will have a good ole swatch session & pick some up. You have some beauties here! xx


  4. It can be quite overwhelming, but it normally doesn't stop me haha, especially when it comes to liquid lipsticks :)

  5. I think I need to be put on a no buying ban haha, I have serious issues, lip products get me every time ;)

  6. Thank you, you definitely need to try the Sephora own band liquid lipsticks, the red shade in particular is amazing!

  7. Ah you got so many amazing things, so many things on my wish list! I've wanted to try the Too Faced Melted Lipsticks for a while, it's a shame you've found them disappointing

  8. Thank you, I definitely need to watch my beauty spending for a while haha, but I can't help it when it comes to liquid lipsticks :)

  10. Thank you, the lip liner is so pretty, though it is quite similar to Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk :)

  11. I recently went to America and spent 3/4 of my time browsing around Sephora! I really wanted to try out some of the Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipsticks but couldn't find any in store. Instead, I picked up lots of Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks and Sephora's Cream Lip Stains! You bought a great mix of things - shame the make-up brush cleaner was a bit of a fail x

  12. I spend way too much on their website, I think I need to put my card in ice haha. I definitely recommend the BH LL they have an amazing formula, I want more shades now :)
