Sephora Beauty Haul

Okay so I’m super excited I finally got a chance to get to Sephora to stock up on some of my favorite products.  I took my time and went through each aisle. And it’s a good thing I did instead of just picking up my “go-to-items” because I got some great finds. Here’s a shot of most of what I picked up.


So one of my favorite foundations is Makeup Forever’s (MUFE) Duo Mat. It helps keep my T-zone shine and oil-free throughout the day. Thanks to a tip I received from Erin at Scandalous Beauty via Twitter. Imagine my surprise when I was informed by the Sephora representative that Duo Mat had been discontinued and MUFE had launched their Pro Finish as a replacement. She helped me try on two shades of the Pro Finish and I ended up purchasing one to try it out at home. Maybe I’ll do a comparison to the Duo Mat in the future.  (NOTE: If you like the Duo Mat you can still purchase most shades at

I had received a sample version of the Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer months ago, but since it wasn’t my shade and I had read a good review on it, I decided to purchase it.  Wow $43 bucks is a heck of a lot for a moisturizer, but if I don’t like it I’ll gladly return it.

The only thing that I purchased from Sephora this time that wasn’t new to me was my BELOVED Stila eyeliner in Stingray.  I love it! It goes on easy and lasts.

More importantly, I found this awesome little kit that Every woman needs to have in their purse and/or car. It contains everything you could need without taking up much space. I got it for $13 and it’s called the MINIMERGENCY Kit and the 17 contents are listed below.


  • a bandage
  • safety pin
  • earring backs
  • deodorant towelettes
  • nail polish remover pad
  • stain remover
  • clear hair elastics
  • lip balm
  • tampon
  • emory board
  • hair spray
  • clear nail polish
  • dental floss
  • mending kit
  • breath freshener
  • double-sided tape
  • pain reliever

The only thing it is missing is a condom, but then again, there is room for that too. It’s pretty awesome and I may go back and get a second one so I’ll have one for my car and one for my purse.
