Every Make-up lovers dream is to shop till you drop in Sephora. Though I am a Beauty Blogger and have travelled quite a lot BUT I have NEVER set foot in Sephora :0 Yes, I kid you not. That is true. Owing basically to spending more time on sight-seeing and less time on shopping. As all my trips are with my family and we make it a point to stick together and have family fun and activities involving all four of us. So how do I buy stuff from Sephora? I pre-order the things that I want through Facebook pages that buy and sell Make-up and accessories.
These pages have literally solved so many of us the hassle and stress involved in buying a limited edition set. Now without any worry or issues we can sit back and relax and order stuff. And then wait for it to deliver 🙂 Anyways today I shall be discussing two things I hauled from Sephora through the Facebook page THE BRAND HUB. I pre-ordered Sephora Favorites Trending: Beauty’s Most Coveted Set and Huda Beauty Textured Shadows Palette Rose Gold Edition.
The whole process of ordering and delivery was extremely smooth and fast. I am also quite pleased that I ordered both of these things.
HUDA BEAUTY TEXTURED SHADOWS PALETTE Rose gold edition
This palette is sheer beauty. Stunning, gorgeous, spectacular are some of the adjectives that come to my mind when I look at this palette. This beautiful palette has a nice selection of deep mattes, 3D metal, pressed pearls highly pressed pigments. The foiled eye-shadows are truly stunning.
I have not yet swatched the palette as I want to do a proper review of it. Hopefully in the next few weeks I shall be doing full swatching and review of the palette, so wait for it 😉
SEPHORA FAVORITES Trending: Beauty’s Most Coveted
One set that I always wait and look out for is The Sephora Favorite Sets. These are great value for money and you get to try so many different and awesome products in the guise of a single set. I think it’s an excellent deal and I am sure to grab these as soon I can.
This year also for the Holiday season Sephora brought out this beauty of a set. The instant I saw a sneak peek of it on instagram, I texted Sarah Tariq the lady behind the page The Brand Hub to order this for me ASAP. And like an angel she did so. When I received my parcel containing this I was extremely happy and excited. I wanted to try so many of the products which are included in this set and now I can 🙂 🙂
This was an Exclusive and Limited edition set and is no longer available on the Sephora website.
This set consists of 13 products in total.
- FOREO LUNA play
I personally wanted to try this out for a long time. It comes in a big size also but that costs a lot. The one I got is in Fuchsia color and is a smaller version. It is a Facial cleansing device and can be used up to 100 times.
2. BECCA Cosmetics Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Moonstone
Becca Cosmetics make some of the most buttery and smooth highlighters. I own Champagne Pop and wanted to grab more of Becca Highlighters. Hence I was glad when I saw Moonstone in the set. As the name suggests it is a pearlescent highlighter with hint of gold flecks in it. This comes in a small size in the set.
3. BEAUTY BLENDER Nude
I can never have enough of a Beauty Blender. I own the original pink and the professional black one and still my lust for this magical sponge never ceases 😉 My face makeup routine is incomplete without using this tool for blending out my cream products and setting my powder products. Excellent tool to use.
4&5. LAURA Mercier Translucent Loose Setting powder and Puff
The Cult famous Laura Mercier Translucent Powder is also included in the set. They have included a travel sized version of the original. The set also includes a travel sized Laura Mercier Puff which originally comes with the translucent powder. Honestly in place of the puff they should have included another best-selling item. I feel a little disappointed with the inclusion of the puff 😦 But the loose setting powder is just genius. You need a little amount either to bake or to set the face. And it gives off such a flawless yet natural looking finish that I am amazed ❤
6. BENEFIT KA- BROW shade 3
Benefit’s Ka- Brow! shade 3 is a cream-gel brow color with brush. It comes in a deluxe size which is rather disappointing. Though I like the concept of having a brow brush and cream gel together in one place. The shade 3 on swatching looks fine for me. It looks promising. Shall let you know my thoughts after trying it out.
7. NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in the shade Custard
NARS Radiant creamy concealer in the shade custard comes in a travel size in the set. This concealer gives my under-eye area very good coverage and tends to cover my blemishes too. Happy to have a travel sized one as it can go in my travel bag 😉
8. TARTE Marine Boosting 4-in-1 mist
This mist is also travel sized. It smells absolutely divine, very fresh and mandarin-like. It will be great to carry this around in the purse to spritz on the face when on the go.
9. KAT VON D Tattoo liner in the shade Trooper
Kat Von D liners are loved by so many Beauty Gurus all over the world. I haven’t used this liner yet but I like the felt- tip applicator on it. It is super lightweight and looks easy to work with.
10. GLAMGLOW SUPERMUD Clearing Treatment
I have used this Supermud Clearing treatment by Glamglow and personally LOVE it. Though the one they have included in the set is a deluxe size but I am still happy to have this as it is very good for spot treatments and even as an all over mask.
11. URBAN DECAY VICE LIPSTICK 714
This is a Full sized lipstick by Urban Decay. It is bright red colored matte lipstick. I really like to wear red lipsticks and I don’t own anything like this particular shade of red. Great to wear for a party or a night out.
12. The Estee Edit the Edgiest Kohl Shadow stick Black Viper
This is a Full sized Black colored shadow stick. I personally won’t use this one as I steer away from black colored shadows and eye-pencils as they tend to make my normal sized eyes look small. The quality is pretty good but not exceptional. I thought that the color would be very black but it is a normal black color not very dark or sooty. The only thing is that it doesn’t smudge once set.
13. COVER FX Enhance Click in Bubbly
This is a highlighter in the shade bubbly which looks like a champagne shade. It looks very subtle on the skin. Quite natural and elegant.
So these were the two things I got for myself. I shall be swatching Huda Beauty Rose Gold Palette in the coming month.
Until next time
MAHA ❤ ❤ ❤
