Massive Sephora and Ulta haul


I really have no valid “excuse” for this massive Sephora and Ulta haul, other than the fact that I was a) travelling and b) September is my Birthday month so I did some early “treat myself” shopping. In my defense, I always tend to do some pretty heavy makeup and skincare haulage when I go state-side – or anywhere, really, because there are simply some things we can’t get here. Let’s take a look at the damage:

My Massive Sephora and ULTA Haul 2015

All of these Sephora goodies were purchased online. It was such a short trip, I didn’t actually have time to physically visit a Sephora while abroad. I’m most excited about my custom Buxom palette. Also hauled:

  • Burberry Beauty Box (Sephora Exclusive)
  • Caudalie Divine Oil
  • Makeup Forever Chromatic Mix
  • Sephora Collection Colorful Wink-It Felt Liner
  • Sephora Collection Brow Thickener
  • Bite Beauty 250 point perk
  • VIBTHANKS beauty bag promo

I always make it a point to visit ULTA because my online shopping options there are more limited. So pleased to finally get my hands on some drugstore goodies, including the Covergirl Super Sizer Mascara which I’ve been dying to try. Also hauled:

    Great picks Kimmy! Very curious to hear your thoughts on your new bits, especially the Burberry Beauty Box, Tartelette palette and your Buxom palette peak my interest! I have been pretty good throughout August and haven’t really bought anything after my latest Sephora haul. I am interested to purchase some Colourpop (although I still need to find a good way to ship it to the UK..) and the Make Up Forever HD stick foundation is high on my wishlist. Have you seen Anastasia Beverly Hills’ newest cream contour palette in Fair? For some reason, I really want to get my hands on that. Not that I’m big on contouring, but I would love to add it to my collection!

      I’ve been meaning to check out Colour Pop for ages now….like you, trying to figure out a way to get it to myself. My thought on the Burberry Beauty Box will be up tomorrow and I’m currently playing with the Buxom palette. I haven’t checked out the Anastasia Contour palette, actually. For some reason, I haven’t been drawn to any of the contour palettes that have released this year. Maybe its because, like you, I don’t do a whole lot of contouring, generally speaking. You’ll have to let me know what you think of it if you do pick it up. 🙂

  1. I am postponing my haul until September, when I finally can go to a Sephora again. But the some serious damage will be done.
    I am excited to hear what you think about the haircare you got.

      That’s the way to do it girl! Can’t wait for that epic-ness. 🙂 I haven’t tried the haircare yet (waiting to finish up the last little bit of some products that are already open) but I will be cracking them open soon. 🙂

  2. Did you have Sephora deliver to your hotel when you were abroad???
    I’m curious about those Buxom individual eye shadows too! Have you heard that Nars will be doing customizable palettes?!! I’m so psyched.
    I love Ulta too, I’ve only visited twice while I was in the U.S. – I so wish they’d come to Canada.
    Have you ever tried Ck One eye shadows? I have ONE and I’m hooked. I’ve heard such good things about the lipsticks.

      Sometimes I deliver to hotel and sometimes to my friend who lives in the U.S. I DID see those customizable NARS palettes. To be honest, I don’t own much from NARS in general, especially when it comes to blushes and the eyeshadow singles and duos. But I’m not opposed to exploring the brand some more. And no, not tried anything from CK One actually, these will be my first. 🙂 x

  3. So many stuff!!! That shampoo&conditioner look really cool

      I’m so excited to try them!

  4. I’m contemplating buying the Burberry Beauty box and some Buxom eyeshadows. I can’t wait to hear what you think of them!

      I think the Burberry Beauty Box is a great and affordable way to get a feel for the brand. Review will be up tomorrow 🙂 And thoughts on the Buxom shadows coming soon. xo

  5. Oh goodie, oh goodie, that’s an epic haul!!! So many super colorful Buxom eyeshadows! Would love to see how you use them!

      I’m having so much fun playing with the Buxom shadows – I wanted to create a really colorful palette. Review coming soon. x

  6. Hey we’re birthday buddies! September is my birthday month too! Which is why my September wishlist is larger than usual lol. And that Alterna Bamboo Shampoo and Condtioner is on there too. Do tell me how you like it. I love the oil mist from the same line. It’s perfect for my hair.

      Yay for September babies! I saw your wishlist today. I think I’d commented that I haven’t actually tried them yet but I will try to soon. x

      I’m also a September baby!!! 😀 I’ve been HAULING since August, though, in preparation for even more hauling in September. LOL! When are you girls’ birthdays? 🙂

      Great haul, Kimmy! I also bought the Burberry Beauty Box and redeemed the Bite 250pt set. Got them the moment I saw them. LOL.

      Hehe. I always give myself excuses this time of year. And I always go to the U.S. with list in hand. It’d probably be worse if I go back to the U.K. anytime soon. So bad. 🙂

  8. Whhhhat an amazing haul Kimmy, I’m really really excited to see what’s inside the burberry beauty box 😀

      I know (sheepish). Buxom palette review should be coming soon. I’m actually giving away the Tartelette palette. It’s live now!

  10. That is a MASSIVE haul alright but a damn good one! Haha! I haven’t done a haul for a very long time but we’ll be on a road trip in two weeks time so I might swing by Sephora and see what damage I can do.

    Such an awesome haul! Yesterday I was in Walgreen’s and found an Orly Little Mermaid three nail polish set on sale for $2.89 and a Orly Frozen duo on sale for $2.49. Regularly $11.00 and $14.00!! Crazy right?! They had all of the Orly and Elf Disney Princess products on sale for 75%+ off. That’s my recently haul. 🙂

      Fantastic haul, Natalie! I so miss the U.S drugstores and those great sales when the cosmetics change seasons. I remember those epic yearly CVS sales. 🙂

  12. The O.P.I nail polish set looks gorgeous <3

      I’ll try to do a review but spoiler alert – I’m loving it. It smells divine and feels divine on the skin. And the spray nozzle makes application a dream! 🙂
