My Sephora Holiday Event Order Haul

I receive a small commission if you shop through my link.

As you know the Sephora Holiday Event started today for Rouge which means we get 20% off everything we can get our greedy little hands on. I was going to keep my order pretty low key but of course I failed miserably.

How did you do? Hopefully much better than I did. I know a lot of people always ask me what I haul so I thought I’d share my order. I’d love to hear what you guys got too!

Here’s a look at my order!

I’ve been wanting to indulge in some of Path McGrath Labs Lust Lipgloss for a while (like since they launched) but never got around to actually ordering any. I finally caved and picked up Flesh Fantasy which looks like a great nude and since I’m sort of obsessed with nude lips lately it seems a perfect fit!

I was determined to get a larger size of Etat Libre d’Orange Like This as I absolutely positively adore the scent but I was horrified when I noticed it was no longer available not to mention many of the Etat Libre d’Orange fragrances (as well as Histoires de Parfums) seem to be phasing out at Sephora. Maybe they are making room for more brands? I do know I am going to head over to Lucky Scent and get a larger Like This as soon as possible just in case it disappears! I did however, get Bijou Romantique which has been on my list a while and at 20% off I a little tiny bit better about the purchase!

As someone with a lot of lipstick I rarely finish any up but I did need a NARS Dolce Vita Lipstick because it is thee perfect my lips but better nude! I also picked up the NARS Dolce Vita Lip Gloss!

I grabbed up the Sol de Janeiro Bum Bum Carnaval Extravaganza as I’m nearing an end to my hand cream and body cream and this comes with a body mist and shower gel so why not?

I also grabbed up Peter Thomas Roth Mask Frenzy! I tend to get this set almost every year and end up using up the masks quickly.

One of the biggest indulges I made was Kilian Love, Don’t be Shy. This is seriously a great big spoil for me but it’s one of my favorite fragrances from Kilian and I was running low and 20% is a huge discount on Kilian fragrances so I ended up doing a replacement order. It’s suck a gooey sweet yummy scent!

I smile and laugh A LOT! And I feel like it is taking a toll on my face. I haven’t quite mastered resting bitch face! It seems like the skin around my nose needs a little firming off so I’m hoping this might do the trick! I thought I’d try out Laneige Time Freeze Sleeping Mask.

And winter is here! Which means my skin is tight as hell so I hauled a back up of my fav overnight mask! Charlotte Tilbury Multi-Miracle Glow Cleansing Balm! Don’t be confused by the name it’s actually a 3-in-1 formula and one of the ways you can use it is applying it all over your face, leaving it on overnight, and rinsing it off in the AM. It leaves skin SOOOO soft and smooth!

That’s it!

What did you get?

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.

    Ugh, I may have to go back for seconds. I tried to contain myself but then regretted not getting everything! My haul so far: Ciate Astrolights palettes and their glitter flip mini duo, the Kaja trio eyeshadows, a couple Kaja lip balms, and most of their mochi blushes and highlighters!

    • Isabella Muse

      please let me know how the highlighter is! I was tempted but said naa prob won’t use but now I regret it!

      • Agona

        I also got the Tarte liquid metallic shadows (I didn’t like the Stila ones because they flaked too much when I tried to blend with a brush; the bareMinerals ones are okay but not glittery/metallic enough for me–I’m not a bit a big cream eyeshadow person but I am finding them easy for a quick one-shadow work day look.)

        I will def let you know about the Kaja highlighters! I was on the fence about them (again, I’m not a huge cream product person) but honestly, when I run out of time in the morning to get ready for work (not a morning person so I’m epically flailing in the AMs), I will cut down to just face/cheeks and mascara so I’ve actually been using cheek products quite a bit more lately.

    • kjh

      Nice! The smaller Ciate palettes are sweet, and those look terrific. I find both ease and variety with that size palette. I think I still want the fearless; have an earlier one. Great haul. And yes, you CAN justify seconds, by saving more money. That’s a legit (self-deceptive) thing! lol

  • Tj

    I bought the violet Voss boss pallete and Natasha Denona mini sunset.. couple of the sale item ( nude lips set and another lip set) I fell in love with my first violet Voss hashtag pallete and was thinking of getting the boss one… hopefully I like it! I might go crazy and get the pat McGrath mothership 3 pallete. I’m a pallete junky!

  • simone

    I grabbed the fenty match stix and lipstick sets! I am sure I will haul more next weekend lol.

    • Isabella Muse

      NICE! I was sooo tempted by to get the vault! but I held off but not sure if I’ll be able to hold out might end up with it!

  • Jen R

    In my defense, a lot of these are basics or gifts! 😉 But I still may go back for more next week – I’m really intrigued by the Fenty lipstick vault, and there’s a Drybar set with the hairdryer, smoothing brush, and a ton of hair products that is a super good deal.

    -Peace Out-Peace Out Favorites-been wanting to try their stuff and this was a nice little sampler
    -Sol de Janeiro-Brazilian Bum Bum Cream Mini Holiday Edition and Brazilian Bod Buff Smoothing Scrub ‘N’ Mask-I already have unopened bottles of the shower cream and hand lotion, so just went for these instead of the full set
    -ELLIS BROOKLYN-Sci-Fi Eau de Parfum and Rrose Eau de Parfum-recently got the sampler set and loved these the most and decided to indulge
    -Drunk Elephant-NightBrightâ„¢ Duo-gift for my colleague!
    -HUM Nutrition-The Sweetest Thing-these gummy vitamins taste super good, and have been doing really good things for my skin, so this was too good a deal to pass up
    -Josie Maran-Body Butter Duo-gift for mom, she loves these and a I get her a bunch every year!
    -Tatcha-Limited Edition Luminous Dewy Skin Mist Ornament-gift for my “work mom”!
    -GLAMGLOW-THIRSTYMUD-splurged on the jumbo size of this because even though I have oily skin, I get horrible dry patches in the winter and this smells amazing and really helps
    -Bite Beauty-Sweet Treats Agave Lip Care Set-another gift for mom!

    • Isabella Muse

      SWEETTTT haul ;-D I had a hard time saying no to the fenty shimmer stix vault :-/ I might go back for that!

  • Agona

    Did you notice that Sephora dropped to 2 samples per order? Is that just for the sale?

    • Christie

      I read that Sephora called it a “glitch”. I call BS on that. A glitch is something that doesn’t work as it should; this was a blatant change.

      • TC

        They have changed it “for the moment”…according to their staff posts on their forum. I suspect this will be the new limit. Ironic that I only ever select samples I know I will use (having previously been a hoarderof never used samples) so only usually get one or two, but this order I wanted three

    • kjh

      Agona, WGAS? When you never get what you ask for anyway, why is two unwanteds not BETTER than three unwanteds? I have good luck with samples instore, though.

  • Maritza

    I did bad . I got the shu eumura lash curler Holiday edition. have the one from last year from Mario Bross and love it so i got a second one cause I lost my tarte eyelash curler. The Killian discovery set that I have been dying to try since you mentioned it and the value is great ; the mini agave lip mask holiday trio and the becca x christy teigen set (the eyeshadow; lipgloss highlighter set) I am considering one of the skin care sephora favorites but I have a full size of vitamin c; a deluxe sample of the boscia mud mask and a complete set of my fave clinique moisturizer with mini toner and face wash , and few other mousterizers all brand new so I had to say to myself NOOOO.. i am using the excuse of my upcoming bday since #missionfailed

    • Isabella Muse

      YAY nice haulinnnnnnnnnnnnnggggg! I hope you like the Killian set ;-D I really like the scents ;-D haha! It’s ok we are all weak at times!

  • Tj

    What I the rouge bonus bag with purchase? I didn’t see it in my checkout online.

  • T.R. Riley

    I think your in NYC. There’s a small store in the UWS that sells the fragrance.

  • Crystal

    I just finished my tube of Flesh Fantasy from Pat McGrath and I NEVER finish any makeup so it is good! I really enjoy her gloss formula, especially the creme shades. I’ll have to get another tube for sure.

  • Shannon N

    I placed my order today!! 😀

    I got the josie maran whipped body butter duo, in sweet citrus and rose water that I’m going to split and give the citrus one to my mother for her birthday.

    I got the kiels hand cream and lip balm duo, again, for my mother but for Christmas!!

    And lastly, because it was on sale, I got the bronzer and highlighter sephora favorites kit for me!! 😀 very excited gi receive my goodies!

  • Brenda C

    I was on a no buy, but 20% off is 20% off. I headed to Hourglass straight away to grab the Ambient Lighting Edit Unlocked Palette and got the last one, whew! MUFE Ultra HD Skin Booster, MJ Highliner Glam Glitter Gel Eyeliner in gold, a Becca concealer, Giorgio Armani Rouge D’Armani Lipstick in a beautiful rose, and Quai Dry Texture Foam $240 later. Then if that wasn’t enough I got home and ordered the PMG Blitz Trance Kit for $340 CAD. When I break my no buy I really break it!

    • Isabella Muse

      20% is huge on Hourglass 😀 you got some good stuff!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOL you did indeed!

  • barbara

    I was proud of myself with the Sephora sale. I ended up getting everything else that I wanted at Ulta with my 20% plus used my points, and obviously gained some more. LOL. At Sephora I got the hourglass edit unlocked and the Too Faced holiday peach powder and lipstick set . One of the KVD lipsticks I had in my cart went out of stock right before I hit submit, so didn’t get that. But I went ahead and got the Urban Decay all nighter setting spray in the double pack and the stila shimmer and glow’s that I wanted from Ulta. I like their reward system better, even though Sephora made theirs a little better its just not as good in my opinion as Ulta. Anyways, still have more days to shop the sales so I am sure we all will find something else to order.

    • Isabella Muse

      awesome 🙂 nice haul! LOL I always find last minute things I want 😀
