Y'all know the perks of having a Beauty Pass on Sephora? It's discounts, double points and freebies on birthday month. And since it's my birthday, I take the opportunity to try out new products that I've never use before.
1. Rebels Refinery Superbia Lipbalm
I find this skull lip balm super cool. To be honest, I don't have a habit of putting on lip balm. I just buy this for the sake of the cool packaging. It's a pretty awesome gift for the mister since he always uses my pink Chu Lip lip balm.
2. Origins Out of Trouble Face Mask
I have heard of so many good feedbacks about this mask. It is time for me try it out myself. This mask is extremely good to treat fresh acne or any early sign of breakouts. It will dry out the acne or stop the breakouts completely. The mask is clay-base and has a very strong minty smell (like Chinese medicine watermelon floss for ulcer). I like to use this mask after my Philips Visacare Microdermabrasion treatment.
3. Benefit's GALifornia Blush
I first saw this blush on the Makeup and Beauty Blog and I had this urge to stalk every local Benefit counter to get it. The shade reminds me a lot of NARS Orgams because of the gold particles. I haven't try it yet, but I already know that me and the GALifornia are going have a great time together. Will update you guys with a review on this. I don't know why I always wanted to buy all the Benefit box blush as collection. Tell me I'm not alone.
4. Too Faced Born This Way Foundation
This foundation isn't my first choice. I wanted to try the Makeup Forever Water Blend Foundation. But after reading a few bad reviews, I decided to skip it and get the Born This Way. Currently, I'm really enjoying my Burberry foundation and it is hitting the bottom of the bottle anytime soon. I do not have much expectation on this foundation because the Burberry one is extremely good. But I trust the Sephora nation since this is one of its best seller foundation. Let's see....
I purchased only 4 products because a lot of the things that I wanted already sold out on their site. The others are freebies. Sephora has new approach on their system where you can use your points to redeem discount voucher or free products. I've used 100 point for a 10% discount voucher and another 300 points to exchange three products.
1. Sephora Birthday gift
This year Sephora is giving away a mini duo blush as birthday gift. The color is very beautiful. I will try to create a look out of it soon.
2. Pixi Glow Tonic
Pixi is now available on Sephora. Yay! This is a brand that I wanted to try since young. However, the products are all skincare only. I hope they will bring in the eyeshadows soon. The Glow Tonic is supposedly a toner which gives you glowing, brighter and clearer skin.
3. Too Faced Milk Chocolate Clamshell
Bronzer/contour isn't my staple product. I hardly reach out for it. Before this I purchased the M.A.C. Mineralized Skinfinish contour powder before. It lasted me 2 years! Since then I've stopped purchasing any bronzer or contour products. This deluxe sized Too Faced Milk Chocolate Clamshell comes in handy for rare events that I needed to contour.
4. Make Up For Ever HD Powder
I've never tried any Make Up For Ever products before. It sounds impossible since I'm a beauty blogger. But it's true. Since I purchase all my products and rarely I get sponsors, Make Up For Ever isn't the brand that I'm excited over. I hope I can establish a good relationship with this deluxe sized HD Powder since this is going to be my first Make Up For Ever product.
This is my little haul from Sephora as a treat for myself for my birthday. Which product would you like me to review first? Let me know...
