Sephora’s Black Friday Came Early

If you are a VIB or VIB Rouge holder, you know the first two weeks of November, Sephora had their 20% off coupon. It was like a mad rush for what to buy. My list was small but it packed a big punch. Packing a big punch meant they were high end products. I always keep updated with my fair share of make-up people on YouTube. In addition, it is not a big surprise I keep a small mental list of products that look promising that I want but should wait on Sephora’s discounts. Let us begin on the goods I got, and what I think of them.

Luna Sleeping Night Oil By Sunday Riley


You heard this raved by many YouTubers. I was thinking it over and over, is this bottle worth the $105 I am about to throw down to it? The truth is, it might not work for everyone. When I first tried this, I was skeptical of how this would turn out. I am not not over the moon with the smell, but thankful it does not linger. This is definitely a major pampering item and I feel like you need to factor in multiple face items besides just this luna oil. I would definitely invest in this item. My skin complexion really improved slowly, and it really calmed the acne I already had. I noticed a brightening and my hyper-pigmentation areas were slowly fading back. Okay let me clarify, it is not like after one use my skin improved that drastically. However, I did notice the hyper-pigmentation did not look as dark. My skin was plumped and hydrated and overall glowing. I would give this oil a shot. It really helps improve complexion and do keep in mind it does take time for any major improvements to shine through. If you want a full detail of my skincare, leave a comment and I will post it in my next post.

Touche Éclat by YSL


I might as well tell you now, you will notice a lot of big name products being mentioned. So do not be surprised that during this 20% sale I was splurging on the more pricey items. To tell you the truth, I only used this item just once since I got it. I am not a morning person so when I am rushing to slap on my make up, I skip a few steps or all steps. It might just end up with me only wearing sunscreen out the door with moisturizer underneath. It also does not help when I have gym days (these are the very very minimal days because I only slap on moisturizer and that is it) because I do not wish to spend time removing make up before the workout. I will give a better review on this item when I get more chances to put on a full face of make up. So far I do actually like the texture and from the one time I wore it, it did not cake or flake. So far so good, but I will keep you posted if it is worth purchasing.

Brow Wiz by Anastasia Beverly Hills


I took this with me on my two week vacation and let me tell you, this is something I plan to buy more than once. I fell in love with the precision it gave me. I was looking for something to replace my Hourglass brow pencil. The Hourglass brow pencil is not bad at all, but I wish for more precision when I am trying to fill in my brows. I got this from the brow wiz. I was able to draw my brows in nicely and I had so much more control compared to Hourglass. Also, the packaging to the Hourglass is very poor. This is the second Hourglass brow pencil and I returned my first one because the entire product fell out of the pencil. I do not know why it detached itself from the package, but  Hourglass needs to fix this problem because it happened twice! I still use the Hourglass one, but I fell in love with Anastasia’s brow wiz. It was everything I wish for in giving me the accuracy and it glides on very smoothly! I would say definitely put your money into getting one!

(Lavender Hydration Skin Cleansing System- Sephora’s bundle that came with a Fresh Soy Face Cleanser, Belif The True Cream Moisturizing Bomb, and GlamGlow ThirstyMud Hydrating Treatment)

I wanted to get the Starry Night limited-edition color, however the products that were bundled with everything was not something I wanted to use. I just got this a few days ago and even after one use, I knew it was worth the investment. My skin was so smooth after using it. Even the days after my skin is still pretty smooth. As smooth as a baby’s bottom! Yes I had to say that, because it is true. My skin just feels great and the texture has improved a lot. It feels pretty nice on the skin when using it. I would say give it a good try and see for yourself. I would invest in it.


I would say give all these items a try if they are on your list! They are raved by a lot of people for a reason. But please also take things like a grain of salt. What might work for me and other people who put positive notes on them, might not work for you. However, take a chance, it is worth trying and saying you do not like it versus ignoring it completely. Sometimes things are worth trying. You never know what you might end up falling in love with!
