Beth and Beauty’s Random Beauty Haul: Sephora, Nordstrom and Avon!

Beth and Beauty's Random Haul Sephora, Nordstrom and Avon

(Click on picture to enlarge)

Hi! Beauties! Today on Beth and Beauty I thought I would just share with you a few random beauty things I have picked up lately from Sephora, Nordstrom and Avon. I am preparing to do a giveaway very soon for you, so I did not swatch or open any of the eye or lip pencils you see above, because I am not sure which ones I am going to include in the giveaway. I also am sharing with you a couple free skincare samples I got while at Sephora that I have been trying out. I have found this is the best way for me to try out any high end skincare or beauty products before I take the leap and purchase them. Let’s just jump on into this haul:

  • Well as you see by the above picture,  I picked up the limited edition NARSissist Cheek Kit that is sold exclusively at Sephora or I am loving my other two Nars blushes so much and they were lonely….LOL! If you haven’t seen Beth and Beauty’s small new Nars Collection, please do! I returned a couple of things to my JC Penney’s Sephora that I had ordered on, so when I seen this blush kit, I knew I had to get this limited edition kit before it was NARSissist Cheek Kit Swatchestoo late. I am so glad I did!! The kit not only came with the cheek palette above but it also came with a travel blush brush. (Sorry, forgot to include in picture) The colors included in palette were from left to right:  Devotee (luminous alabaster sheen), Orgasm (peachy pink with gold shimmer) and Laguna (diffused brown powder with golden shimmer. All I can say is I am in love!! I have heard the Orgasm blush and the Laguna bronzer/contour powder hyped up all over you tube videos and blogs. NOW!! I know why!! They look and blend like no other. The Devotee highlighter is also great.
  • Also while at Sephora, I picked up the above pictured  CoverFX CC cream (grey tube). This product is actually the only product I intended to pick up that day. Oh! the hardship of being a beauty junkie…LOL! I am not going to go into the details of this product because this product along with some other BB and CC creams are part of some research for a future blog post.
  • I will just go ahead and finish up my Sephora  products. While I was there I picked up a couple samples of a couple of higher end skincare products. I had got a sample of a Kate Somerville’s serum/lotion while at the Nordstrom Beauty Trend Show and I loved it, but that particular product is out of this girls budget. So, I seen one of her Nourish daily moisturizers that can be used both day and night and I might could swing its cost. They were nice enough to give me a pretty generous sample and I do love it. She also gave me a sample of the Murad Hydro-Dynamic Ultimate Moisture, it can also be used both day and night. Out of these two my favorite is the Kate Somerville Nourish moisturizer. I am having to fight myself back everyday not go ahead purchase it, but I must be strong until I use up the all the samples to make sure which one to pick up.
  • The only product above that is from Nordstrom is the Shiseido Ibuki Skincare Kit. I have used one of these up and just let me say the Shiseido and Kate Somerville skincare lines run a very close race for me. Notice box is not opened yet!!! Stay tuned you might just see this in a future perhaps giveaway post…..just saying!!!
  • Another skincare item pictured above is an unopened Avon’s 2-week Anew  7S Ultimate Restore the Firmness Skincare Kit. This kit contains a full size eye system: a serum and a cream.
  • Lastly is some Avon Glimmerstick eyeliner & lipliner pencils, along with a felt tip liquid eyeliner and even a brow pencil. Some is opened and some is not!!! Also, above is an unopened Passion perfume roller ball by Avon.

  • I love NARS products, it’s amazing. But in my country we don’t have it, so I hope I’m going to find something by Nars. Great post. Check my blog

    • My Nars collection is very new, so it is small but I have love all of them. Thank you! I will for sure check out your blog.

  • Gotta ♥ Beauty Hauls!!

    • I know, right!!! I love sharing them as much as I love buying them…..LOL

  • Tanya Lovetere

    I am currently trying out the Kate Somerville Oil Free Moisturizer. So far I am liking it.

  • Allison @neversaydiebeauty

    I haven’t tried Nars Orgasm blush yet, but everyone has been raving about it for years so I’ve gotta give it a go. My rave is for IT Cosmetics. I love the CC cream and my Naturally Pretty Matte Shadow Palette that has a cool pearlescent powder that can turn the mattes into shimmer shadows if I’m in the mood.

    • Thank you Allison, this is cosmic, I just ordered my first IT Cosmetic product today, the bye bye under eye concealer and I get your comment….LOL! You can get the kit I am talking about above right now for $49 only at Sephora, which includes the 3 shades and the free blush brush. The Orgasm blush by itself is $30. I didn’t think I would like the color when I first seen it in the stores but once you put it on it is like wow!!!

      • Allison @neversaydiebeauty

        ooh, Beth, you’re killing me! what a deal but I just spent a fortune last week at Sephora with my VIB coupon, lol 😉

        • Totally understand that!!! Us beauty junkies have to make some tough choices….LOL!!

  • Jaime Ripka

    I adore Nars Orgasm!! It’s so beautiful. I love how it looks on my skin! I enjoyed reading this review. Can’t wait for the next one!
    Have you tried Brilliant by Younique? It’s a miracle moisturizer!

    • No, I haven’t tried Brilliant by Younique, but I sure will look into getting me a sample to try. I am always on the look for the perfect one it seems……Oh! The woes of being a beauty enthusiast (junkie)….LOL!

      • Jaime Ripka

        Actually, I am a presenter for Younique and I can send you a sample of Brilliant. 🙂

        • That would be awesome!! You can find my PO box to mail it to me in my Contact Me page in the left sidebar. Thank you, I can not wait to try it.

          • Jaime Ripka

            You got it! I’ll get it ready and send it to you this week. 🙂
