Sephora Haulin' and mini reviews

Sephora Haul and mini reviews - Dusty Foxes Beauty Blog

A new day, a new haul. This I got ages ago actually, when I was on holiday. So I've had time to properly test out these items and let you know what I think.

First of all I got the Tarte Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Airbrush Foundation in the Shade Fair-Light Neutral. The shade Fair-Light Honey was also a good match for me when I am a bit tanned.

The inside of the lid protrudes out unto a mesh which contains the product. Which I like as it means less mess. The matching Airbuki Brush that is paired with it fits nicely and it is how I apply the foundation. It is quite high coverage and can be built up to a more full coverage. It seems quite good at oil control, where I am oily I do touch up in the evening and doesn't feel heavy on the skin.

The brush is really really small, smaller than the palm of my hand but has a nice weight and buffs the foundation in brilliantly. It washed well, but took quite long to dry, possibly due to the density of the brush. I must admit, I found myself rubbing this brush on my cheeks even when not applying the product because it is so soft! I really like this brush.

I also picked up the Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara. This was purely because I have heard so many rave reviews online about the product I had to try it. The small brush is good for catching my nearly non-existent bottom lashes and makes them look so much better. The little tube is so cute too, but tends to get lost under my other makeup due to size (I need to sort out my stash actually...) 


Sephora Haul and mini reviews - Urban Decay Snakebite and Buck - Dusty Foxes Beauty Blog

Somehow the Urban Decay stand was quite a lot cheaper than in the UK (after currency conversion.) So I took the chance to pick up these 2 shadows. I wanted to get one of the Naked Palettes but I couldn't decide on just one so I gave up. I already own a few of the UD single eyeshadows (Melt, Minor Sin and Guilt) but as they were all light colours I wanted some darker ones. I swatched a few ( most of them actually) and these 2 found their way into my basket. 

Buck is a brown matte shade, a great crease colour while Snakebite is a slightly deeper brown shimmer that I personally use as an outer corner colour to amp up a smoky brown eye. I wish I picked up a few more middle colours that aren't as light or dark as the ones I own at the moment for an everyday eye look as these shadows are amazingly pigmented and blend gorgeously, 

Sephora Haul and mini reviews - Sephora Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover - Dusty Foxes Beauty Blog

Since I was getting eye makeup, I decided to pick up some remover. This is a Bi-phase one so you have to shake it up before using and it looks so cute on my desk. I got the travel size as I wasn't sure if I wanted the full size. Slightly regretting that now as this is awesome. I put some on a cotton pad and press onto my eye for a few seconds before gently rubbing it off and it removes waterproof mascara and even some shadows that I usually find hard to remove so easily. 

If I had to name a con (besides unavalability in the UK), I would say that it leaves my eyelids feeling a little oily, but since I wash my face after removing my makeup it isn't a big deal.

Last product I got was the Sephora Cream Lip Stain in 01 Always Red. This product was raved about by a few of my favourite YouTubers, most of whom accredited the purchase with Amelia Liana (who's the first one who made me NEED this product as well).
I have a photo of me wearing this on my Instagram, but what can I say about this that hasn't been said before? It's really nice on the lips and is long-wearing, a little hard to remove as well (which is good).

I wish I got a different colour as well as this one because I so rarely wear red lipstick (the only time I wore it out I was told I was trying too hard and never wore it out since), but this is shade is more for the brave at heart.

Signing off now
