Sephora - Mini Online Shopping Haul

So I put in 2 Sephora orders earlier this month - what I'm showing you is all my add-ons from my shopping orders!! (Everything I bought is for friends and gift exchanges so I will keep those to myself!)

From my first order, I added on my birthday present, a sample bag, and my 3 free samples!

I love when it is birthday month from Sephora! Instead of the Nars lippie presents, I picked the Peter Roth birthday set:

Peter Roth Anti-aging Cleansing Gel ~ sample size 2 oz. for $11.75 (full size is 8 oz. for $47). A luxurious, antiaging facial cleansing gel that provides an exhilarating, peachy clean freshness to help produce a beautiful, fresh, youthful-looking complexion. 

Peter Roth Cucumber Gel Mask ~ sample size 1 oz for $11.20 (full size is 5 oz. for $56). A refreshing, cooling, moisturizing, and calming gel that helps soothe dry, irritated skin. 

I think this a great birthday present - I am exciting to try both of these! I don't have a gel cleanser at the moment, and I did just get a little one of these in a swap, but I use so many masks that I am happy to use this! 

At the beginning of the month, Sephora had these awesome add on bags - this order I chose the "Playful Prep" bag - start the night off with a fun-filled grab bag for getting ready - and staying covered all night long.

This bag comes in this little black bag - here is all the goodies inside:

Here is a closer look at the goodies inside:

Nars Audacious Mascara ~ sample 0.12 oz for $12.75 (full size is 0.32 oz for $34). A buildable, all-in-one mascara with an exclusive, lash-catching brush that separates, lengthens, and amplifies. 

This isn't the highest reviewed mascara - but I will give it a try! 

Hypnose Drama Instant Full Body Volume Mascara ~ sample size 0.135 oz for $19.64 (full size is 0.22 oz for $32). A mascara that creates full body, high-volume lashes in a single stroke.

I'm not sure if I agree with the size/price evaluation on this because it's just a sample size, but hey, I'll take it! I like Lancome mascaras so I will try this eventually! 

Sephora Collection Oil Infusion Color & Care in "Bubbly Grenadine" ~ sample size 0.11 oz for $11 (full size is 0.18 oz for $18). A translucent balm-in-oil formula, enriched with kendi oil and shea butter, for a new sensorial experience. 

This is a little bright for me, so I think I will pass this on! 

Stella McCartney - "Stella" ~ sample (full size is $59 - $114). Soft rosy floral top notes drive the fragrance, subtly balanced with sharp, fresh mandarin essence and light peony flower. Intensifying and elongating the opening notes, the heart is pure rose, to represent absolute femininity.

I'm normally a bit picky about my perfumes - this one is a little strong but I like the scent! 

Bumble and bumble Hairdresser's Invisible Oil ~ sample (full size is $50). A transformative, clear, lightweight hair oil that works for all types of dry hair.

I don't use hair oil generally, I may give this a try because Bumble and bumble is a very well reviewed brand! 

Urban Decay All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray ~ sample size 0.5 oz for $4.50 (full size is 4 oz for $36). A weightless setting spray that keeps makeup looking just-applied for up to 16 hours. 

This is one of the reasons I selected this bag - I haven't tried this spray yet, but I am looking forward to trying this! 

Glamglow Thirstycleanse™ Daily Hydrating Cleanser ~ sample size for 0.5 oz for $4.30 (full size is 5 oz for $43). A daily Mud to Foam™ cleanser for dry and dehydrated skin. 

I love trying Glamglow products - I have enjoyed all of the products I have tried of theirs so far! 

For a free add-on, this Playful Prep came with an awesome value!! I will use most of the products in here! 

Also, on this order, I added on these 3 samples:

Bumble and bumble Thickening Shampoo and Conditioner ~ sample (full size are $10 - $75). A lightweight cleanser for anyone craving fullness and a featherweight moisturizer and detangler with ultra-light silk fibers.

I will give this a go - these are always handy when you are gone from home for a day or two! 

Clarins Super Restorative Total Eye Concentrate ~ sample (full size is $84). An innovative, restorative eye care treatment that targets visible signs of aging. 

This is an expensive eye cream! This should get me a couple of uses! 

Clinique Stay-Matte Oil-Free Makeup #9 Neutral ~ sample (full size is $31). An oil-free makeup that helps you stay matte all day. 

I don't usually prefer a matte look - I usually go more dewy, but I will give this a try! 

Now, a couple of days later I put in a second order! I found a second code to add on another sample bag - this time I chose the "Cocktail Hours Classics" - make a toast to a merry medley of essentials for before and after your holiday festivities. 

This set came in the same makeup bag, here is a look inside:

Here is a closer look at the goodies inside:

Benefit Cosmetics Roller Lash Curling & Lifting Mascara ~ sample size 0.1 oz for $10.33 (full size is 0.3 oz for $31). A mascara inspired by hair rollers, this super-curling and lifting mascara gives a sexy, wide-eyed look. Its patent-pending Hook ‘n’ Roll™ brush features tiny custom-designed hooks to catch, lift, and curl even short and straight lashes. 

I love this mascara - it is awesome to have an extra! 

Hypnose Drama Instant Full Body Volume Mascara ~ sample size 0.135 oz for $19.64 (full size is 0.22 oz for $32). A mascara that creates full body, high-volume lashes in a single stroke.

I did just receive this in the previous sample bag so I will pass one of these on! 

Peter Roth Cucumber Gel Mask ~ sample size 1 oz for $11.20 (full size is 5 oz. for $56). A refreshing, cooling, moisturizing, and calming gel that helps soothe dry, irritated skin. 

I did just get this as well for the birthday gift, but it is nice to have an extra either as a gift or if I like it, I will use it! 

Origins High Potency Night-A-Mins™ Mineral-Enriched Renewal Cream ~ sample size 0.5 oz for $15.53 (full size is 1.7 oz for $53). A night cream that helps skin wake up radiant and refreshed. 

I have not tried this night cream before, but I love a good night cream so I am looking forward to using this! 

Marc Jacobs Fragrance - Mod Noir ~ sample (full size is $34 to $110). A modern return to the classic note of intoxicating gardenia, Marc Jacobs Mod Noir elevates a signature scent into a contemporary sphere. The airy floral fragrance opens with a field of lush, dewy greens, which give way to freshly cut gardenias floating atop sparkling water. Creamy musks leave a sensual dry down on the skin. 

I'm not ever a fan of fragrance samples because I am picky, but I do like this one! 

Elizabeth and James "Nirvana Black" ~ sample (full size is $30 - $120). Elizabeth and James Nirvana Black is an addictive blend of alluring violet, sensual sandalwood, and rich vanilla that strike the perfect balance between masculine and feminine.

Again, not a fan of this scent - it is quite overpowering! 

Make Up Forever Artist Plexi-Gloss in #202 "Sweet Pink" ~ sample size 0.1 oz for $10 (full size is 0.23 oz for $23). A triple-impact lip gloss with buildable color and high-shine that stays put. 

This is a really cute sample and is a good color - sweet pink is a sheer color! I will happily use this! 

And then I added on my three samples:

Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Powder Duo in "Ebony" ~ sample (full size is $30). A two-shade brow powder compact that creates a natural brow. 

I haven't actually tried any of Anastasia's brow products yet, but these look like my colors so I will try them!

Yves Saint Laurent L'Homme ~ sample (full size is $25-$135). Infused with the force of attraction of a man with style and sensuality, this fresh, woody fragrance is effervescent with bright, sparkling notes of bergamot, ginger, and vetiver. A fragrance of contrasts it is a unique combination of luxury, art, and modernity that exudes a timeless elegance.

This is waaay to musky smelling for me - pass.

Giorgio Armani Fluid Sheer #2 Shim Beige ~ sample (full size is $66). A cult-favorite, multitasking illuminator and complexion perfector. 

I love illuminators that can be used in multiple ways - mixed with foundation, as a highlighter or mixed with your blush and bronzer!

I thought these were really great Sephora add-ons and I got a ton of great products while buying gifts for other people!
