My birthday isn't until September but I could not contain my excitement to share with you the Sephora Birthday Gift for 2015!
Every year Sephora gives out a free little makeup gift to everyone who is a Beauty Insider, VIB, or VIB Rouge. For 2015, the gift is a duo of mini NARS lip pencils that include (1) Rikugien Satin Lip Pencil and (2) Cruella Velvet Matte Lip Pencil.
Rikugien is described as a “rose pink” but on my pigmented lips, it appears to be more of a brown pink. The color payoff is quite sheer so it is great as an MLBB shade. It has a creamy, soft, and smooth consistency and leaves a gorgeous shine on the lips without emphasizing any lip imperfections. The longevity is rather short at 2-3 hours but at least it doesn't leave my lips feeling dry during or after wear.
For a detailed review on Cruella, please visit this page.
For VIB Rouge, you will get a bonus mini Larger Than Life Long-Wear Eyeliner in Via Veneto in the set, too! I can't wait until my birthday to score my own gift! The products shown in this review were given to me by a friend who is a Beauty Insider and has a birthday in January! ^_^
If you are not a Beauty Insider yet, it's free to sign up! You don't have to buy anything to receive this gift, just present your Beauty Insider card at the register during your birthday month and they will give you one for free or you can also redeem it online with your order at checkout!
