Beauty Hauls: Sephora Online Orders #2 and #3

Remember my October Beauty Wish List? If so, you might recall that I’ve wanted to purchase the Smashbox Camera Ready BB Cream. While browsing Sephora I discovered that Smashbox also offers a Try It Kit that includes their Photo Finish Foundation Primer and the Halo Hydrating Perfecting Powder. After doing some calculating I found that the set is a pretty good value and decided to go with that instead.

I also got the Benefit Cosmetics ‘Hello Flawless!’ Oxygen Wow Liquid Foundation as a gift with purchase. I’ve been wanting to try this foundation for a while because it’s formulated for dry skin. To be honest, this sample was half of the reason that I placed this order. They always suck me in with this kinda stuff. Grrrrrr.

Lastly, I decided to pick up the Clarins Beauty Flash Balm as my 100 points perk. The description sounded really interesting. I like that you can use it as a balm or as a 10 minute mask.
