Sephora Haul!!

So today is the grand opening of Sephora in Colorado Springs! The first 200 people in line get gift cards ranging from $25-$2000!! Now the $2000 was a long shot but hey! $25 Gift Card made me happy! Free money is always great lol. Anyways, I went with my friend Mandi aka The Lovely Nerds. and we hung out for 2 hours waiting to get our GCs, and chatted. It was definitely a blast for me because I'm going to miss her!! Who will I shop with when I move??? Or just hang out with in general??? lol. Now if you're interested in seeing what I got then keep on reading......

First up the makeup items! I was able to grab the KVD Mi Vida Loca Palette. I kept going back and forth on this one, but since the UD build your own palette wasn't available there=/ Then I finally got Urban Decay 24/7 eyeliner in Perversion and NARS Larger than Life Long-wear Eyeliner in Rue Bonaparte. Perversion is a highly pigmented and very creamy black, while Rue Bonaparte is a nice creamy beige color. I heard many ups and downs about Perversion but I like to test things for myself and let my readers know my experience. Then I really wanted the Benefit Porefessional primer, so I got a set that came with a travel size Erase Paste in No.2 and a travel size Girl Meets Pearl for $31. They had the Porefessionals by itself, but the set was like $2 more and I needed a new Erase Paste lol.

Here's everything out of the boxes.

Kat Von D Mi Vida Loca Palette Eyeshadow Colors; L-R: Altruism, Sparklehorse, Dublin, Mad Max, Drama For Yo Mama, No Regrets, Marya, and Swan Song. The palette also cam with a travel size Autograph Pencil in Wonderchild. 

Swatches of everything; L-R: same as above along with Wonderchild, Perversion and Rue Bonaparte.
Overall first impression of the palette, shadows are nicely pigmented and smooth. Great blend-ability, and wonderful color selection.

Now for miscellaneous items; I chose to get the Sephora Daily Brush Cleaner to just try out and I'll do a later review on that after I've tested it out. Next I just got a basic sharpener since my son hid all of mine which I'll probably find during packing lol, then I got a little Tweezerman Slanted Tweezers since all of mine are crap and I lost my other slanted one, and lastly I got a Precision Pore Cleansing Pad; now I love my Sephora exfoliator but I wanted to give this a try.

And lastly for spending $50 or more they would give you a Sephora Tote Bag which I love! and will definitely get use out of, and a Sephora Advanced Airbrush Set as a surprise gift! I love it all but then again who doesn't love free stuff? Especially brushes lol.

L-R: Powder, Precision Foundation, Concealer, Crease, and Shadow.

Well I hope you enjoyed reading. If you're in Colorado Springs check it out! It's at The Promenade Shops at Briargate! And so everyone knows, I did buy all of this with my own money and shall I say money well spent for me lol. Till next time, take care^_^


  1. I want the mi vida loca palette but i'm afraid the same thing will happen with it that happened with sugarpill... that i'll never use the colors. lol

    1. Lol that's how I feel right now. I'm afraid I won't use it like my sweet heart palette, especially since I'm going to be making a MAC palette next month.
