Sephora Haul

Throughout this weekend, Sephora V.I.B. members are able to redeem a 20% Holiday shopping discount in stores.

I received this offer last week in through email, and couldn't wait to use this discount for an item I've been having my eye on. Today, I went ahead and redeemed the 20% off coupon to buy that item that I've been wanting.


I purchased the Sephora Favorites Lash Stash Kit and received a Sephora Hydrating Powder Blush sample at the cash during my checkout.
Here is an overview of the contents within the Lash Stash Kit which sells for $45 U.S.D. or $54 Canadian, with a total retail value of $133 U.S.D. or $159 Canadian.
The contents within the Sephora Favorites Lash Stash Kit include:
(From Left to Right)
  • Buxom Lash Mascara in Blackest Black (6 ml / 0.2 fl oz)
  • stila Stay All Day Waterproof Volumzing Mascara (3.1 ml / 0.1 fl oz)
  • Korres Volcanic Minerals Volumizing Mascara (3.8 ml / 0.128 fl oz)
  • Benefit They're Real! Mascara (3 g / 0.10 oz)
  • Lancome Hypnose Drama Mascara (4 ml / 0.14 fl oz)
  • Sephora Outrageous Volume Mascara (2 ml / 0.068 fl oz)
  • Clinique High Impact Mascara (4 g / 0.14 oz)
  • tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes! (5 ml / 0.169 fl oz)
  • tarte multiplEYE Lash Enhansing primer (4.2 ml / 0.142 fl oz)
  • Beautenizer Fiberwig (8.3 g / 0.29 oz)
  • smashbox Full Exposure Mascara (11 g / 0.38 oz)



My Overall First Impressions:
One of my favorite aspects of the Sephora Favorites Lash Stash Kit, is that makeup lovers get to try out all these different higher end brands before committing to their full sizes. I also really appreciate that there are two full sized products within this kit, including smashbox Full Exposure Mascara which retails for $22 Canadian and Beautenizer Fiberwig which retails for $29 Canadian, and that the rest of the products are genuine deluxe samples. Buxom is my favorite mascara to date and having it included within this kit was definitely a bonus for me. The main reason for purchasing this kit was that I've heard great things about the other higher end brands and was curious to try them out for myself.

Although mascaras generally expire between 3-6 months after being opened, mascaras can be the main product within people's makeup collections that will continuously change throughout the year. I personally change my mascara quite often, even before they expire simply for hygiene purposes. I would definitely recommend this kit for those who want to try out more products before committing to their full sizes which can be quite pricey, and for those who change mascara as often as I do.


Please feel free to let me know your thoughts about the Sephora Favorites Lash Stash Kit or if you would like to link to your reviews and/or recent Sephora hauls. If you would like for me to review a particular item within this kit, please also mention it within your comments!

    1. So far I bought the Blush and Lash kits, I'm debating on whether I should purchase the others... hehe.. I'm happy that the mascaras will last a while :)

  3. I purchased one last year. I liked the idea, but found that many of the mascaras were already dried out. A lot of them flaked because of how dry they were. I hope you have better success! I did enjoy trying so many brands though.

    1. aww boo, so they don't ship to UK either? No fun :(. Perhaps you can find a friend in another country nearby to buy it for you and then ship it to you? Although, shipping may be too costly :(.

      No problem!

    1. awww I wish you had one nearby as well! There are actually a ton of European and UK brands that I don't have access to all the way here in Canada, I guess we can't get everything we want :(.
