If you have a sephora near you (or ever plan to buy things online from them) I highly recommend joining the beauty insider program. It's free to join and let's you accrue points with every purchase. But the biggest perk of joining is the birthday gift you recieve!
I just picked mine up today and I can't wait to try them out!
I have never tried Benefit brand, as it is a little pricey for a budgeting beauty like myself. But I have heard LOTS of things about the brand, especially these two products.
This cute little box included a sample size of their They're real mascara and a smaller sample of their watts up highlighter.
I am so excited to try out these products! I am going to be super sparing with them since they are so small. I am afraid that if I fall in love with them, I'll need to buy the full size versions! However the good news is the sample size of the highlighter is only $8. That's not so bad, in my opinion.
So I tried to beeline in and out of the store without spending any money but, of course, the clearance section caught my eye. I was delighted to see a $1 bin with a ton of sephora brand mini nail polishes in it!
I picked up a few because for only $1 I couldn't resist. Because they are miniature the ingredients are REALLY hard to read, but I don't think these are big-3 free, which is a bit of a bummer. But I couldn't pass these up!
I am most excited for the one on the left! As you can see it is a purple/green duochrome, which great shimmer to it that the camera couldn't capture. It's called midnight crawl. It's kind of funny that it shows up mostly purple in the picture, because it looks mostly green in real life. Either way I can't wait to see it on the nail and I will for sure post what it looks like!
In the middle is money maker which is an interesting shade of gray. I don't think I have any gray polishes so I had to snatch it!
On the right is 1st night which is a pale dusty pink. I realized recently that I have NO light pink shades but I have an embarrassing amount of hot pink shades. When, in reality I am much more likely to wear a pale/light/baby pink more than a hot neon pink. So I got this one, too!
What do you think? Are you a beauty insider? Did you snatch up your birthday rewards from them?
Follow your bliss,
