SEPHORA NZ ♡ Collective Haul ft. BECCA, Kat Von D & Marc Jacobs Beauty

Today I am sharing with you a collective haul of makeup products that I have purchased from Sephora NZ this year.

At the moment Sephora doesn't have any physical stores in New Zealand and all orders with them has to go through their online store, which I think is based in Singapore.

Although I've always had a great experience shopping from Sephora NZ, I find that it is nothing compared to Sephora USA as their pricing are either ridiculously expensive or too cheap that often makes me questioned about its' authenticity. Their reward program is a lot different too and it's not so great either, plus I feel like shopping from Sephora NZ is no difference to shopping from another online website based in America etc... because it takes approximately one week to process the orders and two to three weeks for the parcels to arrive, sometimes it is being shipped from Singapore and sometimes Australia. I mean, if it's a NZ website, wouldn't you expect your parcel to arrived within a week from the day that you have placed the order?

Anyway, let's begin with the haul ~

SEPHORA NZ COLLECTIVE HAUL

Sephora haul ft. Becca x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Pop Face Palette

Ever since the success of Becca x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Pop collaboration, they have teamed up again and released a Champagne Collection which features the Limited Edition BECCA X JACLYN HILL CHAMPAGNE COLLECTION FACE PALETTE.

The palette has always been available on Sephora NZ, it's either never sold out or it's just not a Limited Edition product as Becca and Jaclyn Hill claims to be; either way, this has been my most used and my must have highlighter and blush palette this year.

The Becca x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Collection Face Palette features two shimmering skin perfector in Champagne Pop and Prosecco Pop, three blushes in Rose Spritz, Amaretto and Pamplemousse. Two of my most used shades from the palette is Champagne Pop and Rose Spritz, and I sometimes mix the two highlighter together to create that glow-in-ya-face look.

 PRICING: I bought this palette in July for $102.00 (no discounts code nor was it on sale) and I have notice that Sephora NZ has increased the price to $105.00 (as of December 2016).

I have written a first impression post on the Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Lolita back in September 2014 and at the time the product didn't give me such a great impression. I didn't like the formula and I thought the color was ugly; but my thoughts has obviously changed a lot within the years and I re-purchased Lolita in the hope that it would become a stable product in my collection. I also got Lolitta II just so I could compare the two shades.

KAT VON D EVERLASTING LIQUID LIPSTICK has a creamy and color-rich formula that glides on like a gloss, but dries to a smooth, matte finish. The liquid lipstick is packed with pigments that provides long-lasting coverage and it claims to leave lips feeling comfortable all day. LOLITA is a chestnut rose shade and LOLITA II is a terra cotta nude shade.

 PRICINGI bought these liquid lipsticks at $30.00 each (no discounts code nor was it on sale) and they used to be $40.00 each, not sure if Sephora NZ has lowered the price for the holiday season, or this is a new permanent pricing. I am definitely glad that I have waited until now to buy these because $40.00 is a lot.

MARC JACOBS BEAUTY AIR BLUSH is a powder blush that features two shades that merged together so you can create a customize natural looking glow. The blush is designed in a striped pattern that is inspired by a Marc Jacobs dress, the lighter shade highlights and the darker shade contours and it is designed so that you can customize the colors by layering and blending to your desire look. This blush claims to wear for 24 hours and it can also be worn from day to night.

There is five shades available from this range and I bought NIGHT FEVER & HOT STUFF, which is described as a cherry / deep plum.

 PRICINGI bought this blush for $39.00 and I thought that it is ridiculously cheap to the fact that I start to doubt its' authenticity. The Marc Jacobs Air Blush retails for USD $42.00 on Sephora US and the official Marc Jacobs Beauty website. Calculating the currency exchange via XE Currency Converter, USD $42.00 equals NZD $58.96 (as of December 2016). For once our pricing is $19.96 cheaper than official retailing prices on a product or a brand that is not physically available in New Zealand... Doesn't that surprise you?!

MARC JACOBS BEAUTY #INSTAMARC LIGHT FILTERING CONTOUR POWDER is a duo of silky contouring powders that sculpt, define and highlight the face. It features a velvety soft texture, sheer pigmentation and creamy powders that blends seamlessly with the skin for a buildable, natural coverage. The contour powder offers shadows to define your features and the highlighting powder offers to subtly illuminates and brightens.

This bronzer and highlighting powder duo is very expensive, but it is definitely worth the price because it has that luxurious feel when using this product. The powders are ultra soft and it has a sheer pigmentation that allows me to build up to my desire shadows and highlight and I love that the size of the pan is a lot bigger than expected! I bought the shade in MIRAGE FILTER 40 and it is described as a light gold / light bronze shade.

 PRICINGI bought the #Instamarc Light Filtering Contour Powder for $64.80 (price includes a 10% off Black Card Member discount). The retail price for this is $72.00.

MARC JACOBS BEAUTY KISS POP LIPSTICK is described as a highly pigmented lipstick that provides a burst of long-wearing, kissable color that features an award-winning, covetable design. I bought 606 POP ARAZZI and it is a gorgeous electric rose shade.

 PRICINGI bought this for $35.25 (it was on sale) and the original price is $42.00.

MARC JACOBS BEAUTY SHAMELESS BOLD BLUSH is one of the first products that I have tried from the brand and it is described as a vivid, silky blush in a stylish compact that delivers bold color and unprecedented vibrancy.

The first thing that pops into my head when I hear Marc Jacobs is... LUXURIOUS! and naturally I would expect the product to meet its' high-ends expectation. I will say that I love the formula of these blushes and I like that it has a soft and smooth texture that blends out beautifully on the cheek. These blushes are fairly pigmented and a little dip into the blush pan will deliver a natural flush.

The only thing that I dislike about this product is the packaging, I find that the compact can never shut properly, even when I tried to press the compact together, it just never shuts?!

 PRICING*annoyed* when I bought these blushes, the original price was $44.00 and I bought them for sale at $35.36 each. Now the retail price has dropped and it is shown as only $34.00 on the website! (as of December 2016) I mean, how can I not be mad?!

  2. AAHHHH! I just swatched that EXACT new blush from them today at Sephora! I love it and if I were to get one it would be that exact one! Also I've owned that same blush...the tantalizing one for more than a year and I absolutely love the fresh, perfectly blended look it has when applied lightly! Their blushes are just amazing.
