Sephora Birthday Haul!

Did anyone stock up or snag anything new from the Sephora Spring Sale last week? I haven't been shopping much lately but because my birthday was last weekend, I was gifted with birthday cash and giftcards so I treated myself to some new things :)
I've been eyeing the Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation for quite a while but because of the price, I wasn't too sure and so this was definitely something I treated myself to! I was unsure of what shade to purchase so I made sure to do a lot of research online. For reference, I'm shade #121/#123 in MUFE Ultra HD Foundation and shade NC121 in MAC - shade 5.75 in the Luminous Silk Foundation is a perfect match to my complexion. I haven't worn a full face makeup look yet but will keep you updated on this foundation once I do!

If you're a Sephora Beauty Insider, Sephora gifts you a birthday mini set of your choice and this year you can choose between the Fresh Beauty Skincare (cleanser + face mask) or Marc Jacobs Beauty (eyeliner + lipstick). I opted for the Marc Beauty Set and you get a mini size of their Highliner Gel Eye Crayon Eyeliner and Le Marc Lip Creme Lipstick in Kiss Kiss Bang Bang (baked rose).

The hype over the ABH Glow Kit all over the internet definitely influenced me to grab this item when I saw it. I'll be sharing my thoughts on this kit soon!

Most of the Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani collection is on sale (with the exception of the eye shadow palette) and I was able to pick up the blush palette before it was sold out. There are limited shades available on the lipsticks and lip liners so definitely check those out before they're completely gone!

What are some new or trending makeup products that you are using and recommend?
