Sephora Holiday 2018 Haul!

I just have to say, I love how fall comes in with a BANG and all of the best beauty brands begin to release their holiday kits and products! There is so much to look at and decide what to buy for gifts and ourselves, it's crazy.

When you're trying to navigate all of these new products and sets popping up.. my best advice would be to pick up sets that include full priced items or close to it (considering the set/kit price in comparison). Sometimes you have huge deals, like a Drunk Elephant kit that is $120CAD but has a $100 C-Firma inside with a couple smaller samples. I also tend to avoid brands that annually release large palettes - Tarte and Too Faced are always doing this and I really feel like those huge face/eye palettes with dozens of shades are not representative of their regular quality when they have releases throughout the year!

There are just a couple of items that I was interested in in picking up right now. I might do more shopping later on for Christmas, but these ones are just for me!

Sephora's Favourites: Give Me More Lip. 
The set includes 14 lip products in varying shades and finishes, with 5 of them being full-sized. It costs $82CAD. 

Products and shades included: 
- 0.11 oz/ 3.2 g Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick in Poet ($26, full size included)
- 0.12 oz/ 3.7 mL bareMinerals Gen Nude Patent Lip Lacquer in Everything ($23, full size included)
- 0.07 oz/ 2 g Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Liquified Lip in Marsala
- 0.12 oz/ 3.5 g Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution in Bond Girl ($39, full size included)
- 0.14 oz/ 4 mL HUDA BEAUTY Lip Strobe in Snobby ($23, full size included)
- 0.1 oz/ 3 mL Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Outlaw
- 0.042 oz/ 1.2 g Marc Jacobs Beauty Le Marc Liquid Lip Crayon in Plum N Get It
- 0.06 oz/ 1.7 g NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Do Me Baby
- 0.04 oz/ 1.3 mL SEPHORA COLLECTION Cream Lip Stain Liquid Lipstick in #40 Pink Tea 
- 0.13 oz/ 4 mL Smashbox Always On Metallic Matte in Vino Noir ($28, full size included)
- 0.033 oz/ 1 mL tarte Rainforest of the Sea H20 Gloss Lip Gloss in Hang Ten 
- 0.1 oz/ 3 mL Too Faced Melted Matte in Queen B 
- 0.03 oz/ 1 mL Urban Decay Hi-Fi Shine Ultra Cushion Lipgloss in Naked 
- 0.1 oz/ 3 mL Yves Saint Laurent Tatouage Couture in #1 Rouge Tatouage

As you can already see, the full sizes alone would cost $139CAD. This is an amazing deal, and a great opportunity to try Charlotte Tilbury since she only recently showed up for sale in Sephora. The Huda gloss, CT lipstick, and BM lacquer really made this set a huge winner in my books. 

Left to right: Huda, Urban Decay, Tarte, Sephora, Too Faced, BareMinerals, CT, NARS, ABH, Marc Jacobs, KVD, YSL, Smashbox, Bite. 

I also was completely smitten by the Clinique "Get Cheeky" compact with 3 Cheek Pops included. I did find that they are a bit.. light. I really only think these will work for fair-skinned folk. One is more of a cheek topper or possibly even a highlight shade. 

The trio is $39CAD and includes Pink Honey, Black Honey, and Nude Pop. A single Cheek Pop retails for $29CAD.. I understand online everyone is saying these are full-sized, but I'm not 100% sure. In any case, it's a nice compact with great shades! Great for travel to have blushes and highlight with you. 

What are you planning to get from all of the holiday releases?
