In my youth, I liked tanning salons, but as I got older, I realized…

Not even for a second :) This past weekend Sephora was organizing a VIP Rouge event for Spring, offering 15% off on everything in store + a make-up bag full of samples. I took full advantage of this event to stack up on all the make-up I was running out on + try some new products. Here is a little review of the goodies I got!
