So, I finally got my Sephora order from the 2021 Spring VIB Sale (or picked it up should I say). I’m a little impatient when it comes to new makeup so decided to do buy online, pick up in store instead of waiting those long shipping times… don’t judge.
In total, I grabbed 8 items. All but one of which are products that I’ve never tried before. I also included two Hourglass Cosmetics items that I got from Ulta Beauty but were available at Sephora as as well.
1. Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Matte Bronzer ||Shade Deep||
2. Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Setting Spray Mini
3. Dior Forever Skin Correct Concealer ||Shade 4W||
4. DiorSkin Nude Luminizer Highlighter ||Shade Pink Glow||
5. Fenty Beauty Setting Powder ||Shade Honey||
6. Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush ||Shade Diffused Heat||
7. Hourglass Bronzer ||Shade Radiant Bronze Light||
8. Lancome Teint Idole Foundation ||Shade 460||
9. NARS Soft Matte Complete Foundation ||Shade Caracas||
10. Rare Beauty Soft Pinch Liquid Blush ||Shade Matte- Bliss||
Out of all of the products I grabbed, my favorite is the Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Matte Bronzer. A little bit goes a long way with this bronzer because it’s really pigmented. At first I was a little nervous about buying a $50+ bronzer, but it’s MASSIVE and the packaging is super high quality. I know it’ll last me a long time since it’s twice the size of my Fenty Beauty Bronzer and I’ve been using that bronzer for 6 months and still haven’t hit pan. I did get the deepest shade, and while it works, it is more for a super glam look so I plan on ordering a shade up to get a more natural bronzy look similar to what I get with my Fenty Beauty Bronzer.
The other Charlotte Tilbury product I grabbed is the Airbrush Flawless Setting Spray. I’ve only used it once and really like the finish of it. It made my skin really smooth and blurred-like. I didn’t notice any transfer or oiliness. I do wish the nozzle was continuous, but a lot of product comes out when sprayed so you don’t have to spray as many times as other setting sprays.
My least favorite item (that I’ll be returning) is the Rare Beauty Soft Pinch Liquid Blush. Although the color is beautiful and the formula is really soft, it just doesn’t blend on top of my makeup. It dries down too fast for me to blend it out and it picks up makeup that is already down. I think I’ll exchange it for the Charlotte Tilbury Cheek to Chic Blush or the Hourglass Vanish Blush Stick.
I got a couple Dior items, and I can already tell that this brand will be a favorite of mine. The packaging is very lux and high quality. I love how the highlighter comes in a velvet pouch. I’ve dropped so many bronzer and highlighters and they break because they don’t have any protective cover tp save them from falls. I definitely plan on getting more colors of the DiorSkin Nude Luminizer Shimmering Glow Highlighter. The shade I got is Pink Glow and I’d describe it as a soft silver-toned pink. It has tiny gold and purple speckles and isn’t one of those chalky/thick glittery highlighters. It blends in so well and isn’t as subtle as I thought it would be.
I’m hoping to try something more gold/copper to give me a more bronze look this summer. As far as the concealer goes, it is absolutely beautiful. It’s really creamy and reminds me a lot of the Too Faced Born this Way Multi-use Sculpting Concealer but a little bit thicker and more of a neutral golden tone.
Overall, I’m super impressed with the items and am already getting another order ready! I plan on hitting Rogue status by the Fall VIB sale so that I can earn 20% off and get exclusive early access to new items. I didn’t talk about a few items because I plan on doing an in-depth review on here soon!
If you shopped the Sephora Spring 2021 VIB Sale, let me know what you picked up and how you like your new items!
