Shopping: Sephora VIB Rouge Sale

Hi everyone! I hope you are all doing great--it's been a while! I'm a bit late with this post, but I always enjoy seeing what other people have picked up during Sephora's sales so thought I would share the items I chose during this year's VIB Rouge sale, which ran from November 6-10. 

Initially I had intended to get only Guerlain's Petrouchka holiday palette, as I always love Guerlain's holiday palettes and have collected them for the last three years. But my resolve quickly weakened and after much time spent browsing the Sephora website, I ended up ordering some other products that have been on my wishlist for a long time, such as Hourglass's Ambient Lighting Palette and Ambient Lighting Blush Palette. I've also wanted a Guerlain Meteorites brush for a year or so--even though it has had mixed reviews I felt like it would be a nice complement to the powder and it just matches the pretty Meteorites tin so well--I couldn't resist!  

Unlike in years past, this year I did all of my shopping online so that I could take advantage of my Ebates discount. I spent way more than I should have, but the allure of 20% off gets me every time! Ah well, I have promised myself that I will make up for it by being more frugal in the new year (spoken like a true makeup addict!). 

1. Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette
2. Hourglass Femme Nude Lip Stylo - Nude No. 1 (plan to use this to lighten darker lip colors)
3. Hourglass Ambient Powder Brush
4. Hourglass Foundation/Blush Brush No. 2
5. Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush Palette

6. Guerlain Holiday 2014 Nail Lacquer - Coque D'Or (pretty shade of gold for the holidays) 
7. Guerlain Meteorites - Dore 04 (makes a lovely, natural-looking, sheer blush shade) 
8. Guerlain Holiday 2014 Petrouchka Eye & Cheek Palette  
9. Guerlain Terracotta Light Sheer Bronzing Powder - Blondes 02
10. Guerlain Meteorites Brush 

11. Josie Maran Bear Naked Facial Wipes (basic wipe that doesn't make my face burn like some do)
12. Bare Minerals - The Magic Act Palette (great selection of neutral shadows and blush shades) 
13. Lancome Grandiose Wide-Angle Fan Effect Mascara (have wanted to try this for a while) 
14. Urban Decay - Urban Obsessions set (Sephora 500-point reward item)
