My Sephora VIB sale package arrived today! Yay!
I purchased the following items:
- Too Faced All I Want For Christmas
- Benefit Gettin’ Cheeky!
- Bare Minerals Kiss & Tell
- Laura Mercier Matte Radiance Baked Powder Compact in Highlight
And I traded in some points for the following 100 Point Perks:
- Stila Color Balm Lipstick in Vivienne
- Clinique Chubby Stick Intense Moisturizing Lip Color Balm in Mightiest Maraschino
I haven’t dug into everything yet but I can already tell you that the Bare Minerals Marvelous Moxie lip set is a no go. Gorgeous, gorgeous colors and I’m so tempted to swatch them all for you but unfortunately they smell of peppermint. That’s a deal breaker for me. I can’t stand peppermint scented cosmetics or body products.
ETA: Darn it! The Stila lipstick is peppermint scented, too. Why, Makeup Gods, why?! 😦
I’m also not feeling the Laura Mercier highlighting powder. I’m not sure what I was expecting — maybe unicorn tears in a pressed powder format — but it’s not blowing me away, and these days if I don’t absolutely love a cosmetic product it’s got to go. I’m really trying to keep my makeup stash to a small, manageable size these days.
If you’re interested in the Laura Mercier highlighter and/or Bare Minerals Kiss & Tell set, they’re up for grabs on my blog sale. The highlighter’s only been swatched and the lip set is brand new. The rules for how to purchase are listed on that page.
