Sephora VIB Sale Haul + Recommendations 2017

Hello friends, and Happy Sephora Sale!! Sorry I am a little late on this but I was hoping to wait until my package from Sephora arrived, but it looks like that might not be happening until after the sale ends (and I want you to be able to get on these goodies ASAP). So I will be talking about the products I purchased from the Sephora VIB Sale based on its reviews, star rating and descriptions. This may then give you some idea of what you may want to add to your basket.

P.S. I will, however, film a collective Sephora VIB Rouge Sale Haul once I have received all of my packages – so stay tuned for that!
