Hi guys! I love receiving samples from Sephora. It’s a great way to try new products without breaking the bank. On my last Sephora order I cashed in on some points and added took advantage of one of their weekly specials since there were some perks that interested me.
I’m excited to try this one! I haven’t tried any of the “They’re Real” products from Benefit. I don’t have high expectations for the eyeliner as I’ve heard lots of negative reviews. It took me a bit to figure out how to use it to even get a swatch. It’s a good concept, gel liner in an applicator, but it’s kind of hard to use. If you do get it to work, it seems to last. I took a makeup remover wipe to get rid of my swatches and it removed everything but the eye liner. Perhaps the makeup remover sample will do the trick! I mostly went for this kit to get the mascara. I love trying new mascaras.
I also got the Murad Perfectly Ageless Skin Renewing Kit with my points. I’m all about trying anti-aging products as starting early is key. I’ve also heard good things about Murad. I’m going to try this for a few weeks and then I’ll check back in and let you know how it is!
I also added the Laura Mercier VIB & VIB Rouge Gift to my cart. It included a lipstick, a lip glacé and a foundation primer. I don’t really use lip glosses, this one felt a bit sticky so I probably won’t use it very much. It is in the shade Bare Naked. The lipstick is a Creme Smooth Lip Colour in the shade Audrey. It is a very smooth, lightweight cream formula that is supposed to last 6 to 8 hours. It’s a nice neutral red and I look forward to pairing it with a look and putting it’s longevity to the test!
Here are some swatches:
