August Sephora Haul

UPDATE: Ya girl didn’t know the Sephora sale started today- use code SUMMERSAVE if you are VIB to save 15%.

Yesterday we celebrated Momma Payne’s birthday with a private makeup class at Sephora and Y’ALL it was so fun! I wasn’t sure what to expect, if it was going to be very beginner “here, this is a blush” or not. But the girls were so informative and helpful! I tried a bunch of new products and ended up buying most of them. Oops, whose birthday was it again? LOL.

I asked y’all on IG Stories (@MadzPayne) if y’all preferred video or a blog post for my Sephora Haul. The vote was pretty even, so I decided to do both! If you are interested in the video, please check out my IGTV tab.



SEPHORA COLLECTION Triple Action Cleansing Water – Cleanse + Purify, $12

I use a steamer twice a day to cleanse my face. I’m all about getting my skin as clean as possible (helps with blemishes, pore size, the list goes on and on). I was surprised when I used this cleansing water that my cotton pad was covered in product still left on my face. I feel so fresh after this product, and I feel like I’ve removed all the gunk off my face after I use this. Plus, I love the way it smells.

When will I use: In the morning after cleansing (steaming my face) with the SEPHORA COLLECTION Organic Cotton Pads, $3.50.The size and feel of these are so nice!

SUPERGOOP! Superscreen Daily Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 40 PA+++, $38

Loved this moisturizer! I have oily skin and was told it is more for normal to dry skin types. However, because the SPF was so high and it contains Cerium (A rare mineral element that reflects and shields from blue light) I got it anyway. I, like most people, am on my devices all day, therefore exposed to blue light all day. I will be on the lookout for a similar product for us oily skin girls so we can wear it under our makeup!

When I will use: On my no makeup days as a moisturizer, SPF, and blue light protection.

ALGENIST GENIUS Liquid Collagen Lip, $35

A vegan collagen lip treatment to deliver long-lasting benefits for fuller, younger-looking lips in as few as 10 days. I haven’t used it for 10 days so I can’t say if it makes your lips look fuller and younger or not. However, when I used this, my lips felt heavenly and stayed that way all day! Normally they will dry or chap during the day, but it didn’t happen. My new favorite lip product!!

When will I use: All the time, under any lip color!

ALGENIST Advanced Anti-Aging Repairing Oil, $82 


Just loved everything about this product! For all skin types* it’s quick to absorb and leaves skin feeling soft and supple. Everything about my skin just looks brighter and better!


When I will use: Since I have oily skin I will most likely use this at night – I will probably use this under my makeup in the Fall once it’s not humid in Houston.



OLEHENRIKSEN C Your Best Selfie Brightening Moisturizer & Eye Crème Set, $24

The Banana Bright Eye Crème has been on my list to try for so long; it’s the internets favorite cream for dark circles. Count me in! Since it was in a smaller travel set, it was a perfect time to try.

When I will use: In my nighttime routine



TOO FACED Major Hangover Super-Sized Replenishing Face Primer, $49

I’m such a huge fan of the Hangover Spray, so I jumped at the chance to try out the primer version. Creates such a smooth canvas for makeup.

SMASHBOX Studio Skin Full Coverage 24 Hour Foundation, $36

WOW! Y’all I fell in love with this foundation. The finish is so pretty, and it stays put. A must-have in this Houston humidity. (Oh and doesn’t break me out- ya girl has sensitive skin).

LAURA MERCIER Baked Blush Bronze Compact, $42

I love that this is a bronze blush duo and it goes on so pretty! The perfect glow!



HOURGLASS Arch Brow Volumizing Fiber Gel, $28 & Arch Brow Shaping Gel, $28

Best brow products I’ve ever use! The brow gel is full of fibers and instantly thickens your eyebrows. It’s AWESOME! And the shaping gel is clear and will keep them in place.

SEPHORA COLLECTION PRO Tapered Crease #19, $20

My last crease brush was started to shed because it was so old. Ya girl was due for a new one! This Sephora collection one is awesome!
