Sephora Wishlist

I've been browsing through the Sephora site and putting things in my "Loves" list. Here are a few items that I have my eye on but haven't made the jump to purchase. I'm on a Sephora No Buy at the moment lol.

  • Cover FX Custom Cover Drops - for mixing in with my moisturizer
  • Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons Palette - how cute is the packaging?
  • Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Bow & Arrow - this has been sold out for the longest time and I can never find it in stores. Gorgeous colour!
  • Sephora Collection Radiant Luminizing Drops - I want to wear this under a powder highlighter or mixed in with my foundation.
What items have been in your wishlist lately and have you purchased any of the above? If so, let me know what you think about them! (Above Images from

Sephora VIB Rouge Haul 2015

I know the sale is way over now and it took me ages to get this post up. No excuses >.< But I still wanted to share some items I purchased during the sale (and after / before). So, this is more of a collective haul than a what I purchased during the 20% off sale a few weeks back. Some of these items I purchased online and some in store so I had to wait for shipping. 

  • Tarte Lipset from their Holidaze Collection
  • ABH Self Made Palette (Love this!)
  • Bite Beauty Lip Duo
  • MUFE 15 Artist Shadow Palette
  • Becca Mini Opal Set
  • Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Opal
  • Tarte Marcuja Creaseless Concealer (I've heard a lot of good things about this)
  • First Aid Beauty All Star Hydration set
  • Sephora Mask
  • MUFE Ultra HD Foundation Stick
  • UD Matte Revolution Lipstick in Bad Blood
  • Tarte Blush Palette from their Holidaze Collection (bought this one before the sale started)
And that is my collective haul from Sephora from the past month and a bit. Would love to hear what you have purchased recently and for any recommendations! Let me know through Facebook, Twitter or Instagram! @LuvabellCouture or comment below!

Review: Carlibybel Palette by BH Cosmetics

I got this beauty a couple of days ago in the mail and was so excited to swatch and try the eyeshadows and highlighters out. I've been a fan of Carli and BH Cosmetics for awhile now and was so happy to hear that they were doing a collab. I did stay up on launch day to get my hands on the palette and am happy that I was able to grab one. First off the colours are gorgeous! Loves me some neutral shades. The highlights have to be my favourite of this palette as they are all super pigmented and amazing! You get 10 eyeshadows and 4 highlights in this palette for a great price. I got mine for $12.50 which was the launch price, I am not sure if the price will change any time soon as the palette is currently out of stock but you can submit your email address to be notified when it comes back in stock at BH Cosmetics.

If you would like to see swatches of all the eyeshadows and highlighters they can be found after the jump below. The eyeshadows were all quite creamy and applied well. I thought some of the darker shades were just a tad bit patchy and needed a couple of application to really stand out but they were blendable and lovely for the price of this palette. As I noted above the highlights were my fave! They applied so well with one swipe and were super pigmented.

Overall, this palette is definitely awesome with a price that is equally as awesome! The shades are great for the fall season too as it has some purples and warm tones. Have you guys tried this palette out or have plans to purchase? I would love to hear about your experiences with this palette!
