And here comes my birthday month of September! Say Hey! if you are a September baby too! As with every year, one of the most exciting things surrounding the birthday is to find out what Sephora has in store for the free birthday gift. This year is a sample size duo of They're Real! mascara (3 g / 0.1 oz) and Watt's Up! highlighter (2.5 g / 0.08 oz). These two minis are packed together in a specially designed birthday gift box called “real birthday TURN-ONS!“. How very cute! :)
According to Benefit, the They're Real! mascara is sold every 10 seconds! Such a bold claim but I don't see why not. This mascara does what it's claimed to do; lengthening and volumizing to get you that false-lash look we've all been after. You can literally see the result instantly after just one coat. I wouldn't put too many coats on though since the formula is a little bit wet so too many coats could weigh down the lashes.
Now onto the most natural-looking highlighter of all times from Benefit – Watt's Up! It is a soft focus highlighter in a champagne shade that looks very natural on when applied carefully and lightly. I really love this shade of highlighter – not too yellow, not too pink, just a perfect balance between the two to give you that “lit-from-within” look. Another great thing about this highlighter is it comes in a stick form. Talk about convenience! Just twist it up, apply, blend, and done. The cream-to-powder formula ensure it takes only seconds for the product to set!
I already own the full size of both products but it's still nice to have a mini version for travel or keeping in my purse. If you are interested in obtaining this set, all you have to do is becoming a Sephora Beauty Insider. Signing up is easy and you can do so in store or online. Once you are a BI, you will start getting good deals and promotions and free gifts just like this. Specifically for this birthday gift, you can redeem it within 28 days of your birthday (before or after) in store without purchase or online with purchase.
Do you like this year's gift? Are you excited to get one?
