Collective Gratis Haul


So working at Sephora not only means a discount, it also mean gratis – or free products. On my first day of training I received a big bag full of makeup, hair care and skin care. I wanna say we get gratissed maybe once of twice a month depending on your position in the store. I also think it is awesome that we can train with brand reps who will give you gratis for wanting to learn about their brand. I started in May, so this haul is about a month and a half worth of product. To make it easier, Im gonna break up my products by category because I couldn’t photograph all of them together!


Skin Care


I ended up finding my favorite serums, which are the Ole Henriksen Truth serum and Invigorating Night Transformation serum. Ive been using these in my routine and its making a huge difference for brightening and clearing my skin. Philosophy also was so generous in giving us a bottle of purity, which is slowly becoming my go to cleanser when Im feeling too lazy to take off my makeup.

Color (Makeup)


First off: I was the most excited to get the Kat Von D tattoo liner (my holy grail), her foundation, eye palette and another setting spray. Another big hot for me is the Bare Minerals loose powder foundation, which works amazing with the brush! Its the perfect foundation for my lazy days. I am also loving the Becca creme highlighter in Champagne Pop! The other big winner for me are the Sephora Collection lip stains! Theres over 40 colors and they wear nicely.

Hair Care


The Deva Curl micellar buildup buster is my best friend after a long week using dry shampoos, oils and volumizing sprays – not to mention it smells like skittles. I feel like its a nice treat for my hair because it feels so silky smooth.


I know I have so many other products that are in my room somewhere – I really need to get more organization bins or a better storage system because my counter is over flowing!
