2013 Sephora Birthday Gift and New Layout!

I know, I get so bored of layouts easily. I really like the way this one turned out, though. I think I'll keep it for a while! Hopefully it loads properly for you, but please let me know if it doesn't. I did widen the post size to accommodate for bigger pictures, so I'm not sure if that is going to cause issues for some of you or not. If all is right in my coding, it should be accessible with no issues.

As pictured in my last post, I picked up this year's birthday gift at Sephora. I always look forward to receiving these! This year is a mini set of Benefit products including a They're Real mascara and Watt's Up highlighter.

^ Left side of swatch is heavy and the right is lightly blended.
I actually got a full-sized version of this mascara for Christmas, but I have yet to open it and use it. I have heard some pretty good things about this mascara, so I am looking forward to seeing if it lives up to the hype for me. I love the wand, though it looks a little intimidating!

The highlighter is a gorgeous champagne shade. I find the formula to be very creamy. I think my skin is too fair and cool-toned to pass this off as a cheek highlighter, as it comes off a little too frosty and yellow-toned. Benefit's High Beam works much better for me in that regard. I think I'll try this on the inner eye instead. I'm glad to have received this small size, because I do not think I will be purchasing the full-sized one.

Have you tried either of these products? Let me know in the comments about your thoughts on them!

I recently got this Birthday Set from Sephora too, and I really like the highlighter; I love how it makes my skin look nice and glowy. The mascara, is ok. I like how the lashes looked, but it smudged on me, and living in a humid, hot climate, and having oily lids, smudging is just a no go.
