Finally, a new blog post! PHEW! Sorry for the long delay. I’m in the process of finishing up the brand new site for Pardon Muah (get excited!) so I apologize for any posting delays. I’m working quickly to get it up so I can start bombarding you with holiday content, gift guides, and more! For today, I’m sharing what I bought from the Sephora Holiday Bonus event! I look forward to this sale every single year because it’s one of the few times Sephora offers 10-20% off their products, some of which never see a discounted price. INSIDERS receive 10% off, VIB receive 15% off, and ROUGE MEMBERS receive 20% off with the code HOLIDAYSAVE! The event runs through November 11th so make sure to shop now for yourself and for gifts for family & friends. Keep reading for what I purchased and why.


1. TAN-LUXE THE FACE repurchase: I’ve been using this product for several months now and have been so pleased with the formula and color payoff. I originally got medium/dark and switched over to light/medium because it has such a nice color payoff. For every night use mixed with my serum or moisturizer I feel like the lighter shade is just perfect! I also have very sensitive skin and have had zero irritation at all.   

2. FARSALI LIQUID GLASS RADIANCE SERUM new to me: I saw the travel size of this product when I was checking out in store today and decided to give it a try. I’m so obsessed with the rose gold elixir and heard this is a lighter version perfect for use as a primer.   

3. YSL ROUGE PUR COUTURE LIPSTICK (#10) repurchase: I’ve been meaning to pick up another #10 for quite some time now but I never could find it in store until today. It’s my favorite shade from Saint Laurent and the consistency and fragrance are amazing. I’ve talked about it before but YSL is my all time favorite beauty brand!  

4. FENTY BRONZER (PRIVATE ISLAND)repurchase: This is the only bronzer I’ve been using for months now. The color is just right (not too dark or orange) and it goes on buttery smooth. I also love that the packaging is sleek and thin and the product lasts a very long time.   

5. HOURGLASS SEAMLESS FINISH FOUNDATION STICK (BEIGE) new to me: I’ve heard Emily from Champagne and Chanel rave about this foundation stick so I figured now is the time to give it a try. I got color matched today in the store and can’t wait to give it a go tomorrow. I wanted to buy the brush to go with since it’s a difference consistency than anything I have but unfortunately, they were sold out in-store.  

6. YSL MON PARIS ROLLERBALL already own the full size: This is my FAVORITE perfume of all time! I call it my lifetime perfume because I can’t imagine loving anything more. I do own other perfumes but this is by far my most loved. It has a fruity scent and a note of raspberries! I’m shocked I haven’t bought the travel size before because when I’m away from home I always miss it.   

7. FARASALI ROSE GOLD 24K SKIN MIST repurchase: I just ran out of this facial spray today. So the timing of holiday bonus was perfect! I literally don’t think I could do my makeup without this anymore. After I finish my makeup I spray 6-8 sprays of this gorgeous mist all over my face. It leave the most beautiful glow without making your makeup shift or move. A must-have!  

8. TOM FORD CREAM FOUNDATION BRUSH new to me: I made the mistake (though fortunately) of buying two Tom Ford brushes when I lived in California and oh my goodness they are amazing. For the money, which is a lot, they are by far my most loved and highest quality brushes. They wash well and apply makeup flawlessly. So I decided to snag the cream foundation brush to add to my collection and cannot wait to use it!  

9. LANEIGE LIP MASK HOLIDAY SET repurchase: I fell in love with the Laneige lip mask this year and have almost made my way through the one I’m currently using. So I saw this fun holiday set with two baby versions in mint and candy scents and had to have it! I put this on every night before bed and my lips are still so hydrated when I wake up in the morning.   

10. HOURGLASS ULTRA SLIM HIGH INTENSITY REFILLABLE LIPSTICK (ONE DAY) repurchase: I ended up snagging a second one of these lipsticks today (after realizing it’s refillable haha) while in the store because I realized the one I’m using probably won’t last much longer. This is without a doubt one of my favorite lipsticks of all time. It has super slim (very chic) packaging, great color payoff, and stays on for a very long time without wearing off.   

11. JO MALONE HAND & BODY WASH (NECTARINE BLOSSOM & HONEY) new to me: I picked up this soap & body wash for my guest/office bathroom. I love how chic the packaging is, and figured it would be a fun little treat when guests stay over. I want my guest bath to offer samples, free products, and a luxury stay! So I had to incorporate my favorite Jo Malone scent.  

12. JO MALONE HAND LOTION (NECTARINE BLOSSOM & HONEY) new to me: Like the hand wash, I wanted this beauty to set out on my counter. I put this one into my master bathroom since my hands get extra dry in the winter and honestly I need something pretty tempting me to actually hydrate my skin.   

13. HOURGLASS AMBIENT LIGHTING HOLIDAY EDIT new to me: This is the one holiday palette I purchase every single year. It’s well worth the money and the quality is like none other. There are so many ways to wear the colors in the palette and you can easily apply them over products you already have. They gibe the skin the most beautiful glow without being overly sparkly. Highly recommend!  

14. JO MALONE FRAGRANCE (NECTARINE BLOSSOM & HONEY) I own the travel size: I loved this so much I wanted the full size version to use when I’m not traveling and I love how beautiful it looks sitting out on my chest of drawers with my other perfumes. I originally smelled this on someone else and immediately asked them what they were wearing. It’s a beautifully light perfume so you never feel over fragranced.  

15. CHARLOTTE TILBURY CONTOUR WAND new to me: I saw Emily Gemma from The Sweetest Thing with this product and I pretty much love everything that she uses so I wanted to test it out for myself. I’m in need of a good liquid contouring product and I think this will be really easy to use.  

16. FARSALI ROSE GOLD ELIXIR I own the travel size: OMG this stuff is like liquid gold. I started using this a couple months ago in the mornings before my makeup and oh it makes your skin glow. It doesn’t irritate my sensitive skin and provides just enough hydration and brightness before putting on any other products.  

17. MARC JACOBS LONGWEAR LIP LINER PENCIL (CREAM & SUGAR)repurchase: Hands down my favorite nude liner of life. Trust me, you want one! The consistency is incredible and it’s amazing if you want a fuller look.  

18. NARS TRANSLUCENT PRESSED POWDER repurchase: No joke, I’ve probably purchased 20 of these powders thus far. It’s the ONLY pressed powder I will use all over my face. It’s totally clear, has a nice light sheen, isn’t messy, and leaves me matte all day. I couldn’t live without it.   

19. CHARLOTTE TILBURY PRESSED POWDER (FAIR) new to me: Lately, I’ve seen so many people rave about this pressed powder for setting concealer. I got the lightest color fair, used it today, and loveee it! It’s been hours and my under eyes still feel totally matte. Which is amazing!     

I hope you enjoyed this Sephora Holiday Bonus haul. I put everything on Instagram  story highlights too if you’d like to watch a talk through. Happy Shopping!
