Share Your Sephora Sale Haul Open Forum

share your haul

Like a mad, obsessive makeup junkie I decided I’d stay up late to see when the Sephora 20% Holiday Shopping Event would kick off because I have a cold and it happens to be kicking my butt so I couldn’t make it after 12 AM. I kept refreshing a little too early on my iPad as I watched last week’s episode of the Knick.

When the clock struck 12 I had my cart loaded, I typed ROUGE20, clicked submit, and…nothing.

Needless to say the sale didn’t start at 12 AM EST. And since I simply couldn’t keep my eyes open I just rolled over and went to sleep.

This morning I was able to get my first order in and everything I wanted was in stock and so far the site is stable. If you recall last year was chaos where they had a virtual waiting line to get on the site but that doesn’t seem the case this year.

So what was my first hauling looking like?

I’m still plotting but for my first order I got:

  • Juliette Has a Gun Romantina
  • Juliette Has a Gun Anyway
  • Juliette Has a Gun Miss Charming
  • Juliette Has a Gun Mad Madame
  • Dr. Jart+ Ceramidin Liquid
  • Burberry Cashmere Concealer
  • Clinique Repairwear Laser Focus Wrinkle Correcting Eye Cream
  • Dr. Jart+ Ceramidin Cream
  • Dr. Jart+ Ceramidin Day Tint SPF 15
  • Flowerbomb Snowglobe

I need to make up my second list of restocks and gifts now. I actually didn’t order any Holiday Gift Sets either but I’m still sorting through those.

What about you?

What did you get?

Do share!


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. If you’re that person feel free to reach out and leave a comment or follow me on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Bloglovin‘.

    I thought I already posted it, but I don’t see it now, so apologies if this is a double post!!

    I already picked up several things during the F&F sale last week (Kat Von D lipstick set, Hourglass primer jumbo size, Glamglow hydration holiday set), so this was more of a mix of some fun things and some practical basics (plus something for my husband’s stocking!). Probably at least one more order to come – yes, I have a problem! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Christina D.

    I had saved a gift card to use during the VIB Rouge sale, so I went BIG (quality not quantity) and got the Viseart Editorial Brights and the Viseart Sultry Muse palette — of course the name always makes me think of you! And they are your kind of colors.

    So with that, I think there is only one more Viseart palette I “need” to score…but I really do not intend to make another purchase today…but the day isn’t over yet, is it?

    • Isabella Muse

      Haha I love you sis ๐Ÿ™‚ that made my day ๐Ÿ™‚ Shifty eyes, nope day isn’t over, few more days of the sale, yeah, you have time! ๐Ÿ˜€

  • Carolyn2

    Yay! Taking a break from work (Shhh… don’t tell) to catch up and read about everyone’s shopping adventure and goodies. ๐Ÿ™‚

    My big splurge was the Viseart Cool Matte pallet. I hope this is as good as everyone says it is ๐Ÿ™‚

    I also picked up:
    Beauty Blender (stocking stuffer)
    Fresh: Sugar Bath Lemon Soap
    Fresh: Sugar Shine Lip Treatment Berry (never tried their gloss)
    L’Occitane One Minute Hand Scrub (sounds lovely)
    L’occitane Shea Butter small hand creams (stocking stuffers)
    Dr Jart+ Misc Masks
    Sephora Collection Pro – Smokey and Tapered Eye shadow (are these good?)
    Shiseido Ultimune – (stock up item)
    MUFE – Travel Size primer

    Oh – and one more splurge and the only item that may go back – Koh Gen Do foundation. It’s so terribly expensive and I purchased it based off the “skin color IQ thingy” Sephora does. If it doesn’t work out or is blah, I’ll return. (I hate returning)

    I’ll be in store tomorrow to look for holiday gifts. Can anyone recommend a contour palette that’s good for beginners? Thinking for my mid 40 year old sister.


    • Isabella Muse

      I must be the only one that didn’t get on board with viseart but now I’m like, “damn what am I missing out on?” LOL great haul Carolyn! ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m no expert on contouring so recs from me sadly but maybe someone with better experience with contouring can reply to that one ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Phyllis

    Cinema secrets brush cleaner– 32oz (love the stuff)

    Estรƒยฉe Lauder little black primer (holy grail lash pruner)

    Fresh nude lip lovers mini kissing trio (for my mother in law)

    Peter Thomas Roth just mask it trio(Irish moor mud, gold mask, cucumber mask)

    Dior addict lipstick tout-Paris (vib rouge only color) yea it’s not a red

    Laura mercier blush and glow radiant face trio

    Beauty blender makeup’s best friend by beauty blender (3 beauty blenders with rehydrator)

    Decided against the viseart palette in Paris nude. It was in and out my cart four times:) should I buy it? It didn’t have good reviews like the matte palettes.

    • Isabella Muse

      I didn’t try the viseart palettes, wasn’t even tempted by them but I keep hearing raves lol! ๐Ÿ˜€ Nice haul chica!

  • Jay

    So far I’ve been good during this sale! Dare I say that I’m makeup shopped out?! Been doing too much shopping lately and I feel like a hoarder lol. So I got stuff I “needed” or probably wouldn’t buy at full price:

    –BeautyBlender makeup’s best friend set
    –Sephora Collection Be Spotted Brush Set
    –Sephora Collection solid brush cleanser
    –Josie Maran coconut water eyeshadow in Bora Bora (reviews are shaky but I must try!)
    –REN Go and Glow! set
    –Bobbi Brown highlighting order in bronze glow ( I said I wouldn’t but it swatched sooo nice)
    –ERBORIAN solid cleansing oil

    It’s funny, the only product I really REALLY want is the Peter Thomas Roth Irish Moor mask. But they sell it at Ulta now so I’m hoping to save up points and grab when Ulta does their next promo. I almost bought the $75 PTR mask set but I had to tell myself to relax! I’m not in that income bracket just yet!

    • Isabella Muse

      haha story of my life Jay ๐Ÿ™‚ Enjoy your haul misses ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Annie

      I have seen the Irish Moor mask on either QVC or HSN recently. They had a video that showed people harvesting the mud, very interesting. They were making it available in a bonus size. I just can’t remember which one, I’m leaning toward QVC but it could be HSN lol

    • Annie

      I’m only VIB right now so I can’t place my order til the 13th however my cart is ready to go LOL! And I’ll actually be hitting Rouge with this order (like it’s a major accomplishment). After reading all these comments I maay have a few more things to add though!

      Right now I have:
      Ole Henriksen 3 Little Wonders plus Cleanse
      Modern Muse Rollerball Trio (for my sister)
      Clarisonic Radiance Head Duo
      Clarisonic Peel Wash
      UD All Nighter Duo
      Shiseido Cotton

      I bought the NARS One Shocking Moment palette, the Juliette Has A Gun sampler and the Ole Henriksen Lift & Glow kit a few weeks ago because I just needed them right away LOL

  • Andrea C

    So far ..

    Sephora favorites beauty sleep (want to try the Luna oil)
    Naked on the run palette
    Becca opal glow on the glow mini highlighter set
    Bite beauty mix n mingle in latte/cortado
    Sephora favorites give me some lip (want the kat Von d Lolita but didn’t want the Lolita set)

    Thinking about the sephora mini multitasker 45.5 brush and too faced beautifully blushed and bronzed mini set

    Lol can you tell I like small sizes? ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Lauren

    I was bad and went back today, Muse. I returned my Dr. Jart kit because the lip balm made my mouth burn, and picked up a backup of my beloved Nars concealer and a bottle of Thierry Mugler Alien Eau Extraordinaire. I *might* still need an extra concealer backup and *maybe* another fancy lip balm.

    • Isabella Muse

      oh sorry about the lip balm issue Lauren! But hey you ended up with more good stuff lol! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Pamela

    Ordered: Tria eye laser, two different sharpeners, clarins tinted SPF 40, Dior Lipglow,YSL foundsation, Sephora bright blue eye pencil, and a bunch of Tony Moly.

  • Grace

    You have inspired me to check out the Juliette has a Gun perfumes—I’m always game for a new and different perfume brand. I know fragrance is highly individualized but are there any you would avoid in this line? Also, any faves?

  • Grace

    Oooh thanks!! I will go check it out right now. You are the best!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Carolyn2

    I still have a few things in my basket but I think I want to try the mall one more time… I’d rather be able to take it home with me instead of my landlords seeing all my packages arriving….


  • Tracy

    This is fun! I did a friends and family haul a few weeks ago and picked up the following:

    NARS Nars Steven Klein Collaboration One Shocking Moment Cheek Palette
    Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Cream Shadow Shore
