Let's Talk Beauty: Sephora's Yearly Gift

Happy Friday, my fellow bloggers...

Today, I wanted to take a break from all the fashion talk and just address something a little more mellow...

If you are a Sephora beauty insider, every year on your birthday, Sephora gives a free gift. That's right, ladies. FREE GIFT!
This year, for my birthday (and for everybody else's birthdays), I received the...


The mini cosmetics box contains a small packaging of:

- Benefit Watt's Up Highlighter
- Benefit They're Real Mascara

$30.00 (for full size)

Our soft focus highlighter turns on "watt" ya got with a delicate champagne glow that's gorgeous. With a
cream-to-powder's a switch on "wow" for all complexions. You'll adore the smooth applicator &
luminous sheen.

Apply watt's up! over chachatint for a long-lasting, dewy flush! To add soft definition to your nose,
apply watt'sup! down the bridge of your nose and blend.

This face highlighter gives a very natural look.
It's easily blended, super simple to apply, and has a great pigmentation.
The champagne color is perfect for any skin tone. It's also a great highlighter for the summer season.
This highlighter lasts all day long which is a big plus and it's really light on the skin!

$23.00 (for full size)

They're real! lengthens, curls, volumizes, lifts, & separates. Our jet black, long-wearing formula won't smudge or dry out. A specially designed brush reveals lashes you never knew you had!

Positions wand horizontally & wiggle brush form side to side, base to tip, to achieve maximum volume, length & lift. Hold wand vertically & stroke upward to curl & separate. Layer generously as desired.

This mascara definitely stays true to it's name AND description.
It lengthens & volumizes!!!
It also doesn't clump.
My eyelashes look PERFECT after applying.

I'm so happy with both of these products!!! I will definitely be purchasing the full size version.

Also, please check out my OASAP post, if you haven't already. You can see how I spent my 4th of July!!! ;)

Have you guys tried any of these products? How'd you like it?
