Makeup MAYhem Day 1 - Sephora VIB Haul

Hey guys! So today I will be showcasing the products I got on my Sephora VIB Haul. It's been a long time coming (considering the VIB discount was weeks ago). I apologize for the delay, and as a result of me not blogging actively over the past couple of months I will be participating on Makeup MAYhem. Ever since I started blogging, I have been excited to undergo this event! For those of you who don't know, you post either a video or a blog every other day for the course of May! For me, I have decided to ambitiously undergo a blog and video for each day of may, alternating between Youtube and my blog! Since I first started with blogging, I have decided that Day 1 of Makeup MAYhem will start on my blog! As such, I hope you guys enjoy this post!

I originally walked into Sephora not knowing what to get, and asked for the advice of the ladies working there on what meaningful items to add to my absolutely ridiculous collection. As such, I was talked into buying three Benefit items (Porefessional Primer, Rockateur Blush, and Hoola Bronzer) and I finally decided to cave and buy the Beauty Blender (for Research purposes of course!) So far, I have thoroughly enjoyed all of the products! I honestly did not have a good first impression of the Beauty Blender, but the more I used it the more I understood how to use it. 

Beauty Blender

Benefit Porefessional Primer

Benefit Hoola Bronzer

Benefit Rockateur Blush

Benefit Travel Makeup Bag 

Sephora Makeup Bag 

As a result of my spending, I was able to to get a free Benefit Travel Makeup Bag, along with the free Sephora Makeup Bag they were giving out to VIBs. I probably don't need either or these, but they will be nice to have! The Sephora Makeup Bag is more suited for day to day travel, because its so tiny and you can't fit a full makeup routine into it. The Benefit bag, however, is a bit more suited for long distance traveling. It is a bit bigger space wise and I really like the two compartments where I can divide my liquids and power makeup to prevent damage.

One of my goals during this month is to do a lot of reviews I've been meaning to do. Any suggestions for future blog posts would be great! The next blog post will be a Spring Makeup Look (requested by the ever amazing Vanessa)! Stay tuned for tomorrow's YouTube video! Now that finals are done, my life will be revolving around makeup blogging and having a permanent date with Netflix! Any TV show suggestions will be fabulous as well :) Hope your day is going well, and until next time!
