Sephora Haul: Reviewing the Products

|
If you seen my (cringe-worthy) video I posted about my recent buys, you'll have noticed what I got at Sephora! But I thought I would take a few flat-lay pictures so you could see what I got--up close.

1. Hourglass Ambient Bronzer in Luminous Bronzer Light 
2. Kevyn Aucoin The Creamy Glow in #2 
4. Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in Mad Max Brown 

I returned the Kevyn Aucoin, like I said I would.  It was just way too tiny for the price tag, in my opinion.

But I also returned the Hourglass bronzer.  I kept thinking that it was a lot of money to pay for a bronzer, regardless of how nice it was.  And then I got a PR package from Too Faced with their new Sweetheart Bronzer, which also provides a luminous glow.  I didn't need two (and there are some dresses I've been eyeing for the price of the other bronzer).  And I'm freaking loving the Too Faced one.  Review coming soon! 

I am super disappointed in the Kat Von D liner.  Considering it was supposed to be brown, it literally looked like a dishwater-blackish colour.  It was horrible!  There was a very dirty undertone to the brown, but it mostly came across as black.  I was really hoping for something like the MUFE 2L, but in liquid form.  So I returned it. 

And the Urban Decay highlight ended up being way too pink.  I'm very pale, and I wear a lot of pink coloured blushes, so I thought this would look really pretty over top.  But it didn't.   It just looked like a fairly vibrant pink streak on my cheek, no matter how much I tried to blend it in.  While a champagne or even silvery-toned highlight can look like the suns rays illuminating your cheeks, this looked like you put an artificial highlight on.

So over all, I'm super disappointed in my haul, and ultimately everything ended up going back.  Which is sad for my face, but good for my wallet.
