It’s the last day of the Sephora spring sale and here’s a quick look at what I hauled plus some first impressions of what I tried. I went a little overboard with the event – there are so many things I’ve had on my list to try so I picked up quite a few things. I have not had a chance to try everything yet but for those of you who wanted the full rundown here are all the details.
New Things I Hauled
Haus Labs has been on my list to try and I think it’s a beautifully designed line with well thought out products. Packaging is sleek and unique. Unfortunately I can’t call this a must-have line to try, the products seem to be very good in quality and ingredients, but the formulas just don’t all hit home.
Haus Labs Le Monster Lip Crayon Rose Matte + Peach Matte are pretty twist up matte lip pencils. The colors I picked are a little too cool in undertone for my skin tone so they make me washed out. I think the formula is great and shade range is pretty good. I just ended up with colors that didn’t work so well for me.
Haus Labs Triclone Skin Tech Medium Coverage Foundation is something I am still trying to make work for me. I picked shade 230 Light Medium Cool (matched in store). Pros: I like the finish and coverage. Cons: The formula settles into my fine lines and also separates in any creases I have (like around the nose or wrinkles I have on my face). I have been able to get it to work when I add a serum + moisturizer + primer, but it’s a little high maintenance and there is a lot of transfer anytime I touch my face to anything.
Haus Labs Powder Sculpt Bronzer Shade 5 and Shade 6. Now these are a thumbs up for me! Formula is not groundbreaking or super unique, but what I love about them is they are satin in finish: not too matte, not too shimmery, just somewhere in between. I have a slight preference for Shade 6 right now but both look pretty good on my skintone right now.
Haus Labs Color Fuse Blush Pomelo Peach + Dragon Fruit Glaze swatch so beautifully on the hand but perhaps I’m just not the right shade skintone-wise for these. On my face they look muddy and unflattering. What I see in the pan definitely does not translate to what goes on my face.
New Base Products
Merit The Minimalist Perfecting Complexion Stick in Sand and Camel are nice for the minimalist. To me they’re more like a concealer stick you can use to on spots you need coverage. Solid performers but if you already own a concealer or foundation stick you love, I don’t think these are must-haves.
Kosas Dream Beam Mineral Sunscreen SPF 40 – have not tried yet, a little scared to since I react to a lot of sunscreens but will keep you posted!
Saie Slip Tint Dewy Tinted Moisturizer in Shade 4 and 4.5, these have already been in my favorites roundup but wanted to highlight them again. Thumbs up for this formula!
Summer Fridays Sheer Skin Tint in Shade 4 and 5 – love these for a really lightweight fluid formula that isn’t too dewy or sheer. Has nice natural coverage and a pretty glow. I’m in between shades so I’m mixing them.
Givenchy Prisme Libre Skin-Caring Concealer in N250 – another one I’ve already put in a favorites roundup, but had to share again. If you’re looking for a new concealer to try that is creamy, easy to blend and has great coverage – this is the one to check out! You can see it IN ACTION HERE.
Bronzers + Contour
Makeup by Mario SoftSculpt Tranforming Skin Perfector – still testing but it has so many rave reviews from people I follow and trust, I have high hopes.
Tower 28 Sculptino in Broad and Tower 28 Bronzino in Sun Coast – have not tried but I picked up a couple lighter shades in formulas I already own and love to try.
Freck Face Hack Precision Sculpting Cream Bronzer in Medium Tan – I partnered with Freck to share a tutorial on how to use these. They’re mini but mighty! Formula is one of the best cream bronzers I’ve tried.
