Mini Sephora Haul, MAC, Julep, Ulta

Happy Monday everyone!  I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend!

Today's post is about a few things I've purchased over the past few weeks.



Julep Nail Polish in Sylvia
Right after Thanksgiving someone on Twitter posted about a special that Julep was having.  The special was that a few of their nail polish colors were $1 AND included free shipping (you were limited to one per person).  So for a buck I got this pretty purple polish which regularly costs $14 delivered to me!  I've never tried Julep polish so I am excited to try this color out.



Ben Nye Banana Powder
I've been on the hunt for a nice light setting powder and the lovely Liz from My Pretty Obsessions recommended this to me.   I've tried this a few times and I like it.  I plan to do a review of this and a few other powders in the next few weeks.



Physicians Formula Mineral Glow Pearls in Translucent Pearl
I've been looking for a nice highlighting powder and purchased this one one with a coupon at Ulta.  This gives a very nice subtle shimmer.  Full review coming soon.



MAC Superslick Liquid Eye Liner in Cockiness (from the RiRi Hearts MAC Holiday Collection)
I believe this is sold out everywhere.  This is a GORGEOUS rose gold colored liquid liner.  I've actually never used it and to be honest not sure when I will.  I wouldn't say this is an everyday
liner but I just had to get it because of the gorgeous color!




NARS Nail Polish in Disco Inferno
This was on sale at Sephora for $5 (regularly $19)!  It looks like a pretty pearly green color.  I'll be doing a NOTD with this for sure.



Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Luminous Light
The hype about this powder is pretty crazy right now so when I got the $15 coupon from Sephora I knew this is what I was going to purchase.  This shade is a champagne pearl type color.  I'm working on a full review of this product but spoiler alert...it wasn't that exciting to me.



So that's everything for now.  If you follow me on Instagram (@glossyglamblog) you know that I've been obsessed with all the makeup sales at the drugstores right now.  I'm working on a post about settings powders and highlighters including the ones listed here and some I've gotten in the drugstore sales since.  Have a great day everyone!

    1. Oh I have yet to try the Julep polish but I'm excited to get to it! Yup, the Hourglass didn't impress me, but it may be because I didn't buy the correct shade. I'm looking more into it. Thanks for visiting!

  4. Loving all the stuff you got! That Julep polish was such a steal, and the NARS polish for $5 definitely wasn't bad either. Can't wait for your reviews!

    1. Yeah, $5 is a bit more that what I usually would want to pay for polish but I figure it's Nars, right?!! LOL.

    1. Yeah I just wasn't impressed by the Hourglass. It's possible I didn't get a good shade for me but who knows. I'm looking more into it. Thanks for visiting!

  7. Great haul and great bargains! I have wondered if the Hourglass powder was really worth all the hype. Typically I find that the things that are most hyped usually aren't all that. I didn't really think a powder could really mimic different lighting conditions, that just seems too good to be true. I love the color of that liner. Gorgeous. Try either a double liner on the top or for a fun shimmer on the bottom. I've been curious about the Ben Nye powder but I know I could never get away with the Banana Powder, I know they have other shades and I am sure I will get around to trying it. Great post thanks for sharing.

    1. Well I think even though it's called Banana Powder it's pretty colorless. About the Hourglass, there was one day that I put nothing on one half of my face and the $45 hourglass powder on the other. I looked in several different lighting situations and even asked people and they said they saw no difference whatsoever! ha! Anyways, I'll explain all that in my review post. :)
      Thanks for commenting!
