In super exciting news, I made VIB Rouge!! I bargained with my hubs and I think now he's just happy he doesn't have to battle the mall for a Christmas gift for me :)
First off, I did grab my extra Clarisonic Sensitive Brush Heads ($25 for 1; $40 for a 2-pack) and the Shiseido Facial Cotton ($9.50) that I am obsessed with. Both of these items were in my recommendations post, and they're both items that I use regularly so I take advantage when I can pick them up at a discount.
From my wishlist, I got Dior Diorskin Shimmer Star in Amber Diamond ($45). I grabbed the last one they had in store, and last I checked it was sold out online, but keep your eyes peeled. I haven't used it yet, but it's just the prettiest highlighter. I can't wait to dig into it! I also grabbed a few more Formula X Nail Polishes ($10.50 to $12.50)...another red, a purple, a grey, and a glitter. You guys know I LOVE these polishes. I also grabbed the topcoat thinking that it may leave my "normal" nail polish with as good wear and shine as the Formula X does. After I test it out I'll be sure to post about it!
Other wishlist items I purchased: Touche Eclat ($40) and the GlamGlow Gift Sexy Supermud Set ($69). (Quickly...I tried the Supermud mask last night and I wasn't left overly impressed, especially for the price. I am going to try it a few more times, and try the exfoliating mask it came with, in the hope that more regular use will leave my skin in better condition. I'll do a full review, but for now I can't say I would recommend spending the money on it.)
I also grabbed a few other impulse items...
This Soap & Glory Lip Balm in Peppermint ($10), which I LOVE, may be my favorite item! It is seriously like Christmas on your lips. It leaves the prettiest shimmery sheen and smells absolutely amazing.
This Bumble & Bumble Dry Thickening Spray ($29). Jury's still out on whether I like this or not. It did really volumize my hair after I sprayed it in, but it fell flat in a short amount of time. Re-fluffing through the day helped, but for the price, I'm just not sure how I feel about it.
This Wen Healthy Hair Kit ($42.50). What can I say...I totally fell for the informercial I saw a few weeks ago. Have any of you guys tried Wen?? Give me your thoughts and tips please!!
Urban Decay De-Slick Setting Spray ($29 for 4 oz., $14 for 1 oz.) I grabbed a small bottle of this to compare to some other setting sprays I have. I'm going to do a full post on these in a few weeks once I've fully tested everything, but here's a preview...don't waste your money on this one.
And that's about it! I'm on a SERIOUS makeup no-buy after this haul, but I'm happy to use my new products and shop my collection a bit.
Lovely readers...what did you get at the VIB sale? Share your goodies :)
