Hauled It: Vincent Longo Eye Shimmer Souffle Review and Swatches

I wanted to do one big post about Vincent Longo Eye Shimmer Souffles with a review, swatches, and an FOTD for each color but I knew by the time I actually get around to doing an FOTD in every color that they'll long be gone from Sephora for the price I paid! So I decided to do the review, swatches, and the haul pictures for you and sometime in the future I'll do a few FOTD's using the product.

Anyway....the moral of today's story is....

You may have noticed right after Christmas or maybe a bit before Vincent Longo was cut from the Sephora line up and reduced to 50% Off. Later on it was reduced further to 75% off but by the time I actually got around to looking into what was available (I was trying to be good you see) it was all blessedly gone. I seriously didn't need anything at the moment and it seemed pointless to bother looking, sometimes the Muse plays it safe.

Flash forward a few days (like Monday of this week) and I was at Sephora and allllllllll the Vincent Longo I could possibly want was on display and reduced by 75% which means that each of the Vincent Longo Eye Shimmer Souffles I hauled were $6 USD each! w00t super deal! I couldn't resist. I own a few of these already but at $6 bucks who could resist stashing up on some more so I hauled six!

You should really get over to Sephora and see what you can snag because these are truly a deal in a half. A little products goes a long way as they are richly pigmented and have a nice shimmer finish without the disco ball effect. The formula is silky, smooth, blends easily and dries down to a powder-like finish. On the eye they are stunning to say the least. I'm wondering how they'll work as a base for pigment. Must try that out! Plus they are amazingly long wearing! No creasing, fading, and they stick around for really have to get serious remover to get everything off your lid after use.

All in all I suggest heading to Sephora to see of you can score some for the rock bottom price. I nailed six in total! Well worth it and cheap to boot.

If anyone is interested I did mistakenly pick up an extra color, Copperleif, for my sister however when I got home she informed me she already had it. If you'd like it it's $10 USD which includes shipping, confirmation, and paypal fees without the US and for non-US it's $11 USD which includes first class airmail shipping and paypal but sadly no confirmation or tracking.

Did you grab anything from the Vincent Longo clearance at Sephora?

What did you get?

Tell the Muse!

I was in Sephora after christmas because I wanted to buy the urban decay eyeliner sets. So I was at the UD display where I tried out Grifter, which I liked ok. It was mostly just glittery and less of a color. Then I meandered over to the longo stuff and put the blue souffle, i think its called babelon, over the grifter i was already wearing and it looked amazing! Like a thin veil of dark blue with sparkles..doesn't work out of order though. So anyway I didn't buy that i bought the eyeliner sets, then it nagged at me so much i returned the sets and bought grifter and babelon. The end.

I didn't pick up anything from the VL sale at Sephora online (although I am debating on traveling up to the Sephora that carries VL and seeing what they have left...).

I would like to say though that you are thoroughly going to enjoy these shimmer souffles! I've got five colors (Lily Mist, Pavlova, Ultra-Violet, Babelon, and Oasis) and I love them all! Possibly Lily Mist the most because I use it the most... or Oasis (just because it's green!).

You also might want to check out your local BBW Flagship to see if they have any VL or Awake left at 75% off (oh, and Goldie too... just for the cute Tink/Alice stuff!).
