Sephora Friends and Family Haul

So I know this isn't a nail post, like my usual post, but I thought it would be nice to change it up every once in a while!

I think this is the first time I actually bought something from Sephora, and oh boy, this is going to start some addiction! I finally bit the bullet and bought a couple things that I've been eyeing for such a long time. 

I remember seeing the Smith's Strawberry Lip Balm a couple years ago and thought it was too expensive. After thinking about it for awhile, I went back to the store where I saw it and they didn't sell it anymore! I've been looking for it everywhere, and finally found it on Sephora probably about a year ago, but didn't want to only buy one product online. But this was the perfect opportunity. 

I have to say I LOVE this lip balm. I remember not being too impressed at first when I put it on my lips right before bed, but when I woke up the next day, my lips were so extremely soft! Another plus is the amazing smell. It's a nice strawberry smell that is not too overwhelming. Definitely a great lip treatment. 

Another thing I've been eyeing was the Urban Decay Naked palette. I know, SUPER LATE, but better late than never. Trust me, I've been eyeing and drooling over this palette the moment it came out, but just couldn't get myself to buy it until now. And I'm so happy I did! I would have done some swatches, but I'm pretty sure you guys all know what the colors look like since I'm pretty sure a lot of you have it already!

Last thing I got was the Tarte LipSurgence. I forgot to take an individual picture of it before I tore the packaging up, but I did take pictures of the swatches of the different colors.
From top to bottom: Glitzy, Perky, Fashy, Swank, Dazzled

From left to right: Glitzy, Perky, Flashy, Swank, Dazzled.

I think my favorite would have to be Dazzled, just because the color is closest to my natural lip color, and I'm so use to lip colors that are more natural. I really want to try to start experimenting with brighter or warmer colors on my lips, so I thought that this would be a good start. 

I honestly don't think they are the most moisturizing thing in the world, but it is definitely somewhat moisturizing. 

Did you get anything from the Sephora Friends and Family Sale? What did you guys get? I would love some recommendations for next time if I order something (which is VERY likely)!



  1. The naked palette has beautiful colours

  2. I actually just got the Naked palette, too, so you're not alone in being late to that game. :)

  3. Great haul! My naked palette is something I use everyday so it's totally worth the price!
