Sephora VIB Chic Week

Sephora rarely does any sales but this week they are letting V.I.B. members and a friend get 15% off on anything in store or online! Of course I had to stop by today with my mom and get my free bag of samples and full size umbrella.

I picked up the new Nars Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer in Alaska. I had to ask the sales associate why Nars didn't simply say it's a BB cream and she explained that it does moisturize, cover blemishes, reduce discoloration, and has SPF 30 but it doesn't act as a primer. I've been using Missha's BB cream without any primer and it stays on at least 8 hours for me. I'm wondering how long Nars will last.

(Retail for $42. Bought it for $35.70)

I love getting free samples. I get to try out new beauty products and sometimes they last for 2 weeks. It comes in this stripe ziploc bag.

Bumble and bumble. thickening shampoo and thickening conditioner
(Retail $8-$57)

 Sephora Full Action Extreme Effect mascara
(Retail $15)

Especially Escada solid perfume
(I think this is so adorable and it totally made this sample bag worth it) 

Make Up For Ever Smoky Lash mascara
(Retail $22)

Givenchy Mister Light
(I'm intrigued by this one. Retail $33)

And finally Boscia BB cream
(Retail $38)

The sale lasts all this week till April 6 and there is no limit. I'm going to pick up a couple of other things tomorrow. Today it was way too packed and crazy for me to actually shop. 

I'm thinking of picking up a couple of Edward Bess products. I've been hearing a lot of raves over them.

Are you buying anything? What do you have your eye on?


  1. I got my umbrella and goodie bag yesterday as well!!!!



  2. I went as well I got the Nars tinted moisturizer, it's in St. Moritz but it doesn't have a tint of radiance after the SA applied it on me so I think I may take it back. LOVE the goodies too and that umbrella is awesome, lined w/sephora red? Too nice to use. Visiting from the blog hop, hope you'll stop by and would you like to follow each other?

    1. Yeah I'm trying it out right now and it's not living up to my expectations. I'm wondering if I should take it back or test it out more. I just visited your blog and would love to follow each other.

  3. What do you think of the NARS tinted moisturizer now? To be honest, I never expected for NARS to have tinted moisturizers so when they released one - it seemed a little mismatch with the rest of their line. I don't know why I felt that way.
