Sephora VIB Beauty Insider Appreciation/Early Access Event (Holidays 2016)

Hi beauty lovers!

For my first blog post, I wanted to give you a quick look into the new Sephora Holiday 2016 products that I was able to see when attending the Sephora VIB Beauty Insider Appreciation/Early Access Event, this morning!

First of all, your girl had to get up quite early for a Saturday morning, because the event started at 8:30 AM. It was totally worth it though, because the awesome Sales Associates served us Coffee Bean coffee and little pastries 😛 The sacrifices I make for makeup 😉


Alright, now let’s get on to the GOOD STUFF!!!

And finally, for fragrance…


Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium Ltd Wild Edition $90


I unfortunately did not get to see the new Tarte Pretty Paintbox Collector’s Makeup Case ($58) nor the Bite Beauty The Perfect Bit Set ($25).  I also was expecting to see the new Urban Decay matte eyeshadow palette, but it wasn’t available just yet…

So, wanna see what I got??


First of all, I think if you spent $35 or more, you got a cosmetic bag with samples.  I had to choose between “the more skin care bag” or “the more makeup bag”.  Of course I picked the makeup one, and here is what was inside…



And finally, I only got one item from this event, as I am trying to restrain myself… 😀  and it is the….


Stila Star Light, Star Bright highlighting palette

I honestly did not plan on getting anything today, but when I felt the texture and swatch these highlighting shades on my hand, I completely fell in love! <3  I should be posting a quick review on this palette very soon to let you know if it’s worth it or not 🙂
