Happy Friday, lovelies! The highly anticipated Sephora VIB Sale for VIB Rouge cardholders begins today and runs through 11/7 and the sale will open up for all VIB members on 11/11 and run through 11/14, offering a 20% discount with the code 20ROUGE! 

In honor of this momentous event, I am excited to share a first look at all of the new shades of the *Surratt Beauty Artistique Eye Shadow and Blush (36 in all...they just launched at Sephora this week!) as well as a shopping list of beauty and skincare favorites (with swatches, of course).  It is my sincere hope that you find this post helpful and inspiring as you plan your engagement in the sale.

Kindly scroll on for more details, swatches and images of the products in action as well as the Bottom Line...
The new Surratt Beauty Artistique Eyeshadow shades.
Finely milled and wildly pigmented, the *Surratt Beauty Artistique Eyeshadow (also reviewed HERE and HERE) has just added 24 new shades to its already extensive lineup; ranging from the palest eggshell to the richest midnight, these eye shadows are breathtakingly beautiful, blend like a dream and resist creasing, even after the course of a long day. I have loved them since the line's launch three years ago and am over the moon at the extended offerings!

Surratt Beauty Artistique Blush.

From a formula standpoint, this blush is silky and weightless, creating gossamer veil of color that instantly melds into skin...it is for these reasons that I use it multiple times a week!

Up first is the *Scouted by Sephora Sephora Favorites box, which features five unique beauty gems in convenient sample sizes:
  • Besame Cosmetics Red Matchbook...each of these little matchsticks is drenched in a classic red lip color that is pigmented and creamy.  Talk about convenient!
  • GrandeLIPS Hydrating Lip Plumper (also reviewed HERE)...I have serious love for this lip plumper because I notice results in seconds, each and every time I use it. 
  • Makeup Eraser Mini...this powerful cloth removes even the most intense makeup with just water.  Brilliant. 
  • MILK MAKEUP Ubame Mascara in Inked...jet black and lush, this mascara boasts lash friendly ingredients and major impact. 
  • Wander Beauty Carryon Lip and Cheek Mini in Pink City...this multi-tasking retractable pencil is great for adding a neutral pink, ultra-natural flush to cheeks and lips alike.

    Bottom Line: I hope you enjoyed this post!  I had such a blast swatching all of the glorious new shades of the *Surratt Beauty Artistique Eye Shadow and *Artistique Blush and would love to hear about what caught your eye as well as what is on your radar for the Sephora VIB Sale!  

    Remember, VIB Rouges have exclusive access through the 7th and the sale opens for VIBs on 11/11 and runs through 11/14.  Consequently, I suggest shopping early and often to ensure you're getting the most from the promotion.

    Good things ahead, including a fresh FOTD and a host of new product procurements...xx,

    1. Delicious post, Rachel. Are all the new colors of Surratt blush shimmery? It kind of looks that way from the photos but not quite sure. I think the original colors were all mattes...

      1. Thanks so much, Teadivamuse! It is good to hear from you!

        With regards to your question, no, not all the new colors of the Surratt Blush are shimmery. In fact, only Barbe A Papa, Cherubique, Halo, Flame, Coupe de Genie and Angelique (6 of the 12) are shimmery and the other 6 (Classique, Tu me Fais Rougir, La Rosee du Soir, Brilliant Idee, Peau de Peche and Chaleur) are a velvety matte finish!

        Hope that helps...they truly are lovely...XO,
