Sephora VIB/Rouge Sale Haul!

I went back and forth for the longest time but after obsessively reviewing my bank account and calculating my next paycheck I decided to go ahead and just treat myself with some goodies from Sephora! I also really wanted the adorable tote bag and for the first time (in awhile) cashed in some points for a 500 perk! I didn't get a lot of stuff but I'm really excited about the things that I did get!

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette
I've been eyeing this for awhile now but the $58 (!! you're not seeing things here that is a FIVE followed by an EIGHT) seemed ridiculous for three powders in a gorgeous case. But with 20% off in hand and a carefully planned spending limit I'm happy to finally get my hands on this! There are three shades: Incandescent Light, Dim Light, and Radiant Light. I'm so in love with this and glad I finally took the plunge. These are so gorgeous just dusted all over your face, as a highlighter or as a setting powder. And the packaging is just to die for too! This is my first Hourglass product and it will be treasured.
Benefit Cosmetic The Real Steal Kit
Benefit Cosmetic Hot 2 Trot! Kit
Next I purchased these two Benefit kits. Usually I don't like the kits because they like to put powders into box sets which drive me crazy or they are all deluxe samples. These two caught my eye since they both contained one full sized product! The Real Steal contains a full size They're Real mascara which is my all time favorite mascara and I was running low, plus a mini of They're Real! Push-Up Liner and a sample packet of They're Real! Remover. I've been curious about the Push-Up Liner and even though I heard the mini version is horrible compared to the full size one, I'm looking forward to try it because the kit cost $24 and the mascara alone retails for $23 so these two other items are basically like bonus extras to me! The Hot 2 Trot! kit interested me for the full sized Bella Bamba blush which is something that is discontinued so I wanted to snag one while I had the chance and get a free Cha Cha Tint too.
Holiday Tote Bag
Sephora Dark Spot Minimizing Serum
Cute little tote bag that is perfect as a small overnight bag of essentials! This serum I added to my cart just because it was heavily discounted ($7!) and I wanted to see if it would help with my acne scarring. I love the dark spot corrector from Garnier but it is quite pricey so if this works out than great, if not at least it will still work as a serum to nourish my skin!
Josie Maran Argan Infinity Lip And Cheek Creamy Oil in Limitless Pink Sample
Cover FX BB Gel Mattifying Anti-Blemish Treatment in N Medium Sample
Dior Capture Totale Dreamskin Sample
There wasn't much of a sample choice but I got what I believed wouldn't be foil packets but clearly I failed at that. More like anything that wasn't a perfume sample or beard conditioner was good in my book.
Urban Decay Urban Obsessions Set
This was a 500 point perk that I cashed in for which is a mini palette of four eyeshadows, a 24/7 Glide On pencil in Velvet and a sample packet of Primer Potion. I've only ever cashed in points for adorable mini perfume bottles but this kit seemed great and since I only have one UD palette (Naked 3) I didn't have any of these colors. Plus it looks like a great travel palette with neutral colors that are day and night appropriate along with the added bonus of a spot to keep an eyeliner!
