Pieces of Life: The Muse’s Sephora Friends and Family Purchase List Edition

Muse Friends and Family 21

You asked so here it is, what I hauled from Sephora Friends and Family.  Actually I’m so diseased I placed my order as soon as I got up this morning just in case items I wanted sold out fast.

Jump ahead for it.

This is only my first cart….knowing me I’ll go back at least two more times because I can’t resist stocking up plus I still have to do a gift order for mates and family. But here’s the haul for me!

Bare Escentuals Extreme Glimmers

Sephora Friends and Family 11

Laura Mercier Baked Eye Colour Palette

Sephora Friends and Family 13

Dior Diorskin Nude Skin Perfecting Hydrating Concealer

Sephora Friends and Family 8

Philosophy Supernatural Superbeautiful Foundation

Sephora Friends and Family 10

Urban Decay Lip Primer Potion

Sephora Friends and Family 5

DuWop Private Red Lipstick

Sephora Friends and Family 2

Dior Skinflash Primer Radiance Boosting Makeup Primer

Sephora Friends and Family 9

DuWop Lipmousse in Baked Apple, Cupcake, and Tart

Sephora Friends and Family 4

Sephora DuWop Primestone

Sephora Friends and Family 3

Kat Von D True Romance Eye Palette

Sephora Friends and Family 7

Fresh Strawberry Flowers

Sephora Friends and Family 1

Philosophy Have a Cherry Christmas

Sephora Friends and Family 12

I believe that’s everything…..I’m still looking into hauling the Shu Uemura Tsumori Chisato Planet Cat Collection but it’s not in stock as of yet. Will wait a few days and hope it’ll pop up.

My second order will probably consist of items I’m running low on such as makeup remover, etc….I’m hoping this is it for now but knowing me I’ll be back for a second helping plus as I mentioned still have to haul gifts and such.

What about you?

Share your Sephora purchase list!

Did I miss anything?

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    I just placed my first order so far.
    I got the Stila Smudgepot Collection and the DiorSkin Compact Foundation (my second one).
    I was thinking of the Kat Von D True Love palette, maybe a Nars blush and eyeshadow, and Shu Uemura eyeshadow.

    For now I ordered what I needed.
    I do want more though.

    • the Muse

      awesome haul karrie! I got the new Dior Primer and Concealer 😀 Also snatched up that Kat Von Palette on the double. I’m plotting my second order too. Wanting the Shu Planet Cat bits 😀

        I hope you enjoy everything that you receive.
        It looks like you got a lot of great items.

      hi sam not sure you read the post but this items I ordered so they haven’t shipped yet haven’t tried them 🙂 sorry hun…..as soon as I get the box (few days from now, just ordered it this morning) I’ll review the items.

  • mary_in_wonder

    I’M curious of your judgement of the Urban Decay Lip PP…..
    You bought a lot!!! wow

  • dangster

    Ugh. I tried ordering when the sale started at midnight last night (I’m PST), but the website crashed. I tried submitting my order up until 2 am PST, then I finally gave up and went to bed. I then started having dreams (nightmares?) of me trying to order stuff from Sephora and failing because the website kept crashing, and then stuff started selling out in my dream, lol. (I also have really weird World of Warcraft dreams after a rough night playing, but that’s a different story)

    I was finally able to submit the order this morning after I woke up at 9am. This is what I got:

    Fresh Star Light, Star Bright Set
    Philosophy Warm By The Fire set
    Sephora Brand Slim Pencil – Lip – Neutral 115
    Silk’n Silk’n SensEpil (i’ve been waiting ALL year to buy this)
    Stila Gift of Appreciation set
    Sephora Favorites Lip Service Deluxe Sampler

    And, I finally was able to pick up the 500-pt Kat von D eyeshadow palette. From what I’ve heard my credit card authorization is still pending because the order total was > $300, and will be that way for 24 hrs. I really hope my order goes through and everything I ordered doesn’t get sold out :-/

    • the Muse

      LOL dangster omg lol poor thing! I have WoW dreams too!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HAHAHA!

      Greattttttttt hauling especially the Silk and Silk Epil….been curious about that. Tell us the deets when you get it. I want the Stila GoA set but I’m debating…I have a funny feeling it’ll end up in my bloody cart!

      No worries once the order is placed the items are on hold for you! So don’t worry about them selling out 😀 so long as the order went through and you got confirmation they are yours 😀

  • Jamie

    I think I am similarly diseased…I tried at 12:01 am last night, but I guess I am not in the same time zone. And then I put through my first order this morning! Lol~

      Last year as I recall they did 10% coupon code towards the end of the time Sephora FF was ending so it’s not alot but it’s something 😀 maybe they’ll do the same this year!

      great haul enjoy babe!

  • Paris B

    Thats an awesome haul! Wish I could order but unfortunately (or fortunately) Sephora doesn’t ship international 😀 Can’t wait to see what else you are going to get 🙂

    • the Muse

      got your email paris all taken care of hun! Will email you later or tomorrow 😀 w00t!

  • TerriB

    DuWop Private Red or Lipstick Queen Medieval (which isn’t at Sephora): Where would you put your bucks for a true red without pink?
    Appreciate your thoughts!
    Enjoy your purchases. 🙂

    • the Muse

      MMM terri hard one my friend. They are both sheer you know that right?! I haven’t tried DuWOp Private Red yet but I have it coming so I’ll let you know the better of the two.

  • jonnie

    Okay, I really want to know what you think of the DuWop Lip Mousse… it had horrible reviews on Sephora.com but I really liked the look of the Baked Apple…

    As for my haul…

    UD 24/7 Super Stash (damn those LE shades only in the sets!)
    UD Primer Potion (restock… I will never wear eye makeup without this)
    Korres Yoghurt Regimen Kit (I’m looking for my perfect skincare… still! Here’s hoping!)
    Benefit Thrrrrob (based on your review!)
    Korres Pomegranate Face Wipes (on the search for the perfect face wipes to take to the field or on deployments)
    Sephora Favorites Lip Service Deluxe Sampler (I wouldn’t have seen this without dangster up there! Thanks! 😀 I recently dyed my hair much darker than it has been the last couple years and none of my lipsticks looked right any more – this should be awesome for coming up with new staple shades!)
    Korres Cherry Lip Kisses set (same reason as above, plus the Muse’s recommendation)

    So there it is… it was quite a big haul! I just received news that I have around a 95% chance of deploying again soon, a mere 17 months after coming home from last time if it happens. So I spend money to try to not think about it… What a life I chose! Thus the pomegranate wipes… last time I deployed Ibrought Shisedo wipes but the plastic case they come in wasn’t convenient to carry around in my rucksack, so I gave up and started using cheap wipes which weren’t very good for my face. I’m hoping the pomegranate ones are more portable. 😛

    • the Muse

      jonnie I noticed those crumb reviews but my curiosity got me and I hauled anyway 🙂 You’re going love benefit thrrob…it’s one of my fav powders 🙂 LOVE LOVE cherry Lip kisses 😀 You’ll come back and tell me what you think right?! 🙂

      awesome haul of epic proportions my friend! Gosh Jonnie I’m sorry 🙁 You’ll have internet service while away right? Maybe on occasion you’ll stop and comment, let us know how you are! Thank you for your service Jonnie, you’re doing a great thing!!!!!!!

      I think you’ll like them, I’m addicted to the smell 🙂

      • jonnie

        Well, just make sure you review the Lip Mousse. If you end up liking it I may have to get Baked Apple!

        I don’t know about internet service… I had relatively great service in Kuwait, but as deployments go that one was pretty cushy (I even played WoW for a little while until work and school got in the way!). Afghanistan is probably not going to be so forgiving on the internet addiction withdrawals! If this deployment ends up happening I will need to haul skincare big time… I didn’t realize last time that Sephora won’t ship to APO addresses. Bummer. The makeup won’t be a big deal because other than the occasional lip gloss (I use SPF as an excuse) I don’t wear it in the field or deployed. It’ll make for a huge haul when I get home and have to buy all new stuff though! 😀

        Okay, that turned into a major ramble. Short version – I don’t know about internet but if/when I go this time I’ll try to keep in touch. I think I mentioned before, I don’t have any friends who share the makeup and skin care obsession so it’s nice to have a place to vent.

        • the Muse

          hey jonnie!

          Sorry about the delayed reply dear! been crazy busy with comments! I haven’t tried yet *slaps head* so much to test so little time to do it LOL!

          w00t WOW in the Middle East haha awesome! Oh that sucks about Sephora, surprised as so many online stores ship to APO!

          Any news yet if the deployment is happening? Or is it a fact you will be going?

          My friends aren’t as into make as me either 😀 so it’s always nice speaking to fellow addicts!

  • Laura

    I hauled the DuWop Private Red too.

    Maybe I’ll take a picture so we can see the difference in different lips?
