My biggest Sephora VIB haul. Ever.

Today is just not my day. I woke up too early and lacking sleep on a Saturday morning from a bad dream; realized that despite having gone to Loblaws a mere 3 days ago, I’d forgotten to buy eggs; and upon going to the grocery store yet again, had a bus cancelled on me, making me wait an hour outside in the cold.

I had only intended to spend the $25 in order to get my GWP. I picked up Fairy Drops’ Scandal Queen mascara, which I’d heard great things about and have wanted for a while. On my way out, I passed by Buxom and checked out their cream shadows. My eyes got to wandering and settled on Buxom’s lash Mascara (one of my favourites!), and the available value sets – which inevitably led to…
