HAUL // Sephora feat. Tarte, Bite & Josie Maran

I actually ordered these bits about a month ago so I'm a little late with posting this and as a result, the Tarte Eyshadow set has gone unfortuately, but I have a good alternative, the rest all appear to be on there though. This was my first order from Sephora and I was really impressed with how quickly the order arrived from the US, I placed my order on Saturday and despite a bank holiday in the US on the Monday, it had arrived by the Friday, I took advantage of the $6 shipping on orders over $85 which is really good, it's almost worth spending the $85 because the shipping works out being fairly pricey if you spend under that - One thing to be aware of though is that there are additional taxes that will be added when you go to checkout so the price you see on the site will go up slightly but on the plus side, there are not duties to pay when it arrives in the UK so what you pay is what you get.

Tarte Amazonian Clay Eyeshadow Set V1/V2 $39

I'm not sure whether this is V1 or V2, it's advertised as both in a lot of places but it's essentially an eyeshadow pallette with 16 shadows in a range of mattes and shimmers in varying nude shades, all very neutral. I wouldn't say that these are the best formulas in the world but by no means bad, some are definitely better than others but they are fairly buttery and easy to blend, a few of them have a little bit of fall out but nothing that can't be fixed easily and the shades all work very well together, for the price, this is a great little pallette. This set isn't available anymore but there is a similar one in this set which is $59 and comes with a varitey of mini products from the Tarte range such as lip glosses, lip tints, blushes & mascara so you get to try a bit of everything which I think is really nice and if this had been there when I was placing my order, I would have gone for this instead! 

BITE Agave Lip Mask (Champagne) $26

This is like nothing I've ever tried before, you all know how I love my lip balms, but this takes it too another level - I went for the Champagne version which has a hint of shimmer running through and a sweet vanilla flavour which I love but the original version is definitely on my wishlist now as well. I'll do a full review of this in the next few weeks but this makes me all kinds of happy.

Josie Maran Argan Oil Lip & Cheek Set - $28

This is another one that is unfortunately no longer available but to be honest, this was the disappointment in the order for me. I was so pleased to see the four little minis so I could try out all the colours but as blushes, these just aren't for me, I found they tended to drag a littlebit so it would move my foundation underneath and they just looked a little strange on the cheeks and the colours inside didn't seem to match the packaging or the decriptions, they were just a bit strange, I think they can work on the lips but again, it's not the ideal lip product as they are quite oily, I'm going to keep trying with these but first thoughts aren't great!

Tarte Lights, Camera Flashes Mascara - $23

This is hands down one of the best mascara's I've ever used, it literally makes my lashes look like i'm wearing false lashes, it's super black, really lngthening and adds plenty of volume which is everything I look for in a mascara, I normally hate plastic brushes but this is definitely a winner for me, I will be putting up a review of this shortly *hearteyessmiley*

Sephora Favorites Draw the Line Set - $30

I love the Sephora Favorites sets, little mini sizes that give you the chance to try and multitude of products that you wouldn't normally get to try. This set includes Nars, Marc Jacobs, Stila,Urban Decay, Kat Von D - big names, mini sizes but you still get a lot of product to really give it a good test!

And, I think that's it - but putting in the links has highlighted a whole new batch of products that I want to try/buy...

Have you tried any of these, what are your thoughts?
