The Classic Brunette: Sephora Makeup Haul

Sephora Makeup Haul


Hello lovelies! For the first time in a while I made some purchases from Sephora, and I wanted to share them with you. I've never done a "haul" type post, but I feel like this would be considered one. I'll also be including reviews and swatches (for the palettes) as well as my overall thoughts on the products.





There's a reason this lipgloss is considered a best seller! I'm particular about my lip glosses, because I hate the way some feel on my lips. This one however is perfectly comfortable and doesn't have that "sticky" feeling that you can occasionally get. The shade I purchased is described as a champagne-gold shimmer, but I would also add that there is somewhat of a nude base to it as well. Most times I prefer the glossy look over the matte, so when comparing to other nude lip products I own, this one gives me that desired finish. I've been experimenting with using this on top of my other nude lipsticks and stains and it continues to look gorgeous with every one I try! P.S. If you're looking for a great nude lip stain (that my roommates have dubbed the 'sisterhood of the traveling pants' of lip stains because of it's universally flattering color) try out this one from the Sephora collection!




Shades From Top To Bottom: Treasure, Escape, Tiki, Heat Wave, Malibu, Rays, Compass, Jewel

First of all how cute is the mermaid pattern on this palette?! I love how all the palettes in the Rainforest of the Sea collection have gorgeous patterns like this. When I was in Sephora searching through the items I was drawn to this one because of the glittery shades. In my daily makeup routine I regularly include shimmery eyeshadow, so I believed this would be an excellent addition to my collection. One thing I was nervous about was that with my (extremely) pale skin, some of these shades wouldn't show up. Luckily, they all were nicely pigmented and even the lightest of them showed up! I also tested these out for longer wear, and they stay on all day which is also a plus. The colors are all gorgeous and easy to blend, something that I truly love about Tarte eyeshadows! I will definitely be using this in my day to day looks for the coming months. 



Shades From Top To Bottom: Tempera, Golden Ochre, Vermeer, Buon Fresco, Antique Bronze, Love Letter, Cyprus Umber, Raw Sienna, Burnt Orange, Primavera, Red Ochre, Venetian Red, Warm Taupe, Realgar

I have wanted the Modern Renaissance palette since the minute I laid eyes on it! The colors are absolutely dreamy and the pink and red tones are so on trend right now. Again I was worried that the shadows wouldn't look good with my skin tone, but I'm literally OBSESSED with how great they look. I'm always a little scared to go out of my comfort zone with eyeshadow (Aka anything that isn't a neutral), however I am love love loving these reds and pinks. My roommates and I went out for a girls night and I decided to experiment with this palette and I was extremely impressed with the pigmentation and longevity of the colors. I actually ended up sleeping with my makeup on and I woke up and nothing had smudged or went out of place. If you're looking to splurge on an eyeshadow palette that has some neutrals and some fun colors, I highly recommend this palette!
