Sephora Birthday Freebie

I mentioned that I got this the other week for my birthday. I definitely like this set more than the previous two years of the cupcake bubble bath and the glosses. I feel like this gives a good selection.

The packaging for the eyeshadow is minimal, which I absolutely love. It doesn't take up much room. I love MAC shadows, but I find the packaging to be so bulky which makes me want to depot them as soon as I get them (for the ones not offered in pan form). Though I do think I'll do some research on how to depot the Sephora ones so that I can add this to one of my palettes.

I love how silky this feels. It reminds me of the MAC Starflash formula. I may just have to give more attention to the Sephora brand eyeshadows, because this is much nicer than I thought it would be. I personally would not wear this all over the lid, but used lightly, it makes a nice brow/cheek/inner eye corner highlight.

This is a very creamy eye pencil, which I prefer. The creamier the better for me, because I find them easy to blend and cause less tugging during the application. I like the color of this, as I don't think that I would generally choose it and it is very unique. It gives the illusion of being duochrome when light hits it.

I don't know how I feel about this mascara. It coats nicely, but I find the wand bristles to lose shape relatively easy. The formula also flakes off not much longer after applying it. It does not do anything special in the volume or length department. It just simply coats your lashes. As a free item, I am glad to have tried it. It's not bad, it's just not great.

Can't wait to see what they offer next year! :)

I'm so jealous. I wish we had Sephora here, but we just have Ulta. I love the color of the eye pencil, though.
