If you remember a few posts ago, I tried shopping at Sephora PH using my app and picked up a few items on sale. I have shopped at Luxola.com/ph back in the day but this would be my first time shopping after the e-beauty store was sold to Sephora.
Shopping using the app was easy although there were a couple of glitches. For instance, two items that I picked up weren’t reflected at the checkout so I didn’t get them. That’s okay because I was quite happy with the items that I picked up.
I got one of Becca’s iconic highlighter, the Shimmering Skin Perfector in rose gold. I would’ve gotten the Opal, which is the most popular shade in the range, but the shade is too similar to my theBalm Mary Lou-manizer. The rose gold is quite bronzy and deep, I’m sure it will suit my skin tone perfectly.
Next, I got the Kat Von D Everlasting Lip Duo contour kit. I am new to the brand and but was always curious about the Everlasting liquid lipsticks. Glad I snagged this item just in time. I’m eyeing another lipstick set from the brand, the Holiday Deluxe Liquid Lipstick Set. It’s still on my wishlist together with the Foreo Luna Mini 2, hahaha! I’m just waiting for a FRESH restock before I make another purchase, a larger one this time.
Finally, I got a bath gel from Mario Badescu. I actually got this by mistake. I was thinking of getting this for our Davao trip because our hotel has a bathtub but I realized too late that I can’t put this in my carry-all. So that sucks. Now I got another bath gel to add to my already sizable bath gel collection, heh.
Weirdly enough, my parcel also came with an extra Becca highlighter, the Jaclyn Hill Shimmering Skin Perfector Mineral Blush Duo (in Champagne pop and hyacinth). I told you the app was buggy! I was so surprised! I did accidentally add this to my bag while shopping but somehow, it disappeared during checkout. I wasn’t charged for the product and though I don’t really like this combo (partial to the coral version), I can’t say no to free shit. I live for it, actually. The parcel also came with a free canvas tote (with a print that announces my beauty addiction) and a couple of samples.
That’s my modest purchase. Too bad there wasn’t more stuff on sale, the items were quite limited. Shopping using the app was okay but it was laggy at times, especially when checking out. It took a while before I received the stuff I bought. I ordered these last October 26 and got the package on November 4. Granted, Sephora did say the delivery will be slightly delayed during sales + the package came from Singapore.
That being said, I will continue to shop during sales because Sephora PH does offer great deals! I’ve already tried most of the products and the highlighters are BOMB. Stay tuned for the reviews, have a happy weekend!
