NARS Box of Makeup - Free Goodies from Sephora
Hello lovelies! It's been quite awhile since I've done a beauty related post, so here goes nothing! Today I will be sharing the box of free makeup I received from Sephora, for just being a loyal customer....how amazing is that? When you sign up for their free Beauty Insider rewards program you're instantly eligible for free birthday gifts and exclusive makeup/skincare events. I love Sephora's rewards program because it's a lot different than Ulta's system. At Ulta, you receive points, which in turn is good for money off, a total win win. For Sephora, it's a little different, you don't get money off on your goods (sadly) but you do get free products. At Sephora there are 100, 250, and 500 point rewards, which are easily attainable for any beauty junkie. For quite awhile, I had been saving up my points and FINALLY I got to chose a 500 point reward. It was between a skincare set by Dr. Brant or the NARS-so I chose the NARS! Lets take a closer look and see whats inside!
Alright, so this set actually came with four of these products. The same day I got my 500 point reward we were given a deluxe sample of the Baby Doll lip gloss (the very pink one) I was super excited to receive some new makeup products and experience NARS first hand. Getting free gifts for me, especially when it's makeup/skincare related is like Christmas, I just can't get enough. I was sad to see that my free box of goodies were all minis, but it was better than nothing. I've been using these products for about three weeks or so and absolutely love them. The packaging is super cute, and the quality is out of this world. I guess you could say I'm a die hard NARS fan now. I love being apart of the Sephora family because we get loaded full of gratis, training, and education and this is just one small part of it. In this box of goodies I received the following:
The second I tried this mascara, I instantly fell in love with it. It has a unique lash-catching brush that grips every single lash easily. What I love most about it is it never makes my lashes clump together. It evenly seperates, lifts, and makes my lashes appear more full in one easy coat. The brush is super unique and crushes clumps in their tracks. This mascara has instantly become one of my favorites.
Pro-Prime Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base
I was super excited to try their eye shadow primer. It's super light weight, and dries to a clear finish, perfect for any eye shadow application. I'm a big lover of my Too Faced Shadow Insurance primer, so it was fun to try something new. I feel like this eye shadow primer did prolong the longevity of my eye makeup successfully. The first day I wore it I used very intense colors, and lucky for me, I experienced no fall out or fading throughout my day. If you're looking for a new eyeshadow primer, definitely check this one out!
Orgasm Lip Gloss
I had never been a lip gloss kind of girl....until I tried this. I knew that the Orgasm gloss would resemble their highly popular blush, and that kind of worried me. The blush is the most GORGEOUS peachy pink color, with a hint of gold, but...in a lip gloss? That is exactly what it looks like. On the lips, the color is very subtle and just livens up any look. It's the perfect color for every day wear, and provides a nice shine. I love this lip gloss because it's not sticky, or too shiny. I love that this lip gloss is super hydrating and doesn't leave a sticky residue on my lips.
For years, I heard nothing but amazing things about this blush. This blush has a HUGE cult following, and I knew I had to try it. When I found out it was in this box, I couldn't wait. The biggest thing about this blush is that it's a universally flattering shade. It can be worn on all skin types and still look beautiful. When I first saw the color, I was terrified to be honest. I didn't like the "pink" appearance. When you swatch it on your hand it's actually a very peachy, pinkish blush. It also has a hint of gold shimmer in it, which adds a touch of radiance to the skin. Since I received this box full of goodies I have been wearing nothing but Orgasm on my cheeks. This blush wakes up my super pale face, and gives me a nice, radiant glowing complexion.
Overall, I am extremely pleased with my 500 point perk box. I love that NARS gave me their top selling products, so I could finally see what the hype was about. I can easily say that NARS has quickly become one of my favorite brands we carry in store. I'm extremely thankful to be able to try new products, and really broaden my scope of knowledge in makeup.
What are some of your favorite makeup brands? Have you tried any of the NARS products? I'd love to hear!
