Free From Sephora!!

Sephora has a free rewards program where you can accumulate points with purchases you make. Every dollar you spend is 1 point and once you reach 100 points you can get a free deluxe sample of a featured product.

If you wait until you accumulate 500 points you can get a limited edition set! Your points don’t expire so you can take you sweet time collecting them and have a nice surprise when you reach 100 or 500 points. Although I think its better to wait til you reach 500 points because its usually worth more.

On my Recent trip to Sephora the Cashier informed me that I Finally Had collected 500 Points. Yay!

They Gave me {what I think is the best 500 point gift so far} a Benefit Set!

girlmeetspearlIt Came With a Full Size Girl Meets Pearl Highlighter { $30 Value} a Bene Tint Mini 0.13 fl oz and a Bad Gal Lash Mini 0.14 oz!
girlmeetspearl1They Give all this to you In the cute little box labeled Sweet to meet you! Things are so much better when there free!

I think they Have a L’Occitane Favorites set right now for 500 points too and it includes 5 deluxe samples.

Another Awesome Benefit of being a Sephora Beauty Insider Is that they give you a free Birthday gift every Year! 

In 2013 Sephora Gave me a Sample size They’re Real! mascara and Watt’s Up! highlighter. This Year they are giving a mini Make Up For Ever Lipstick and mascara! Too bad I have to Wait Until August.

SEPHORA 2014 BIRTHDAY GIFT

I Highly Recommend you Sign up for Sephora Beauty Insider Program and at least get your free birthday gift.

They Also offer a birthday gift for MEN. {Usually a Mini Jack Black Shaving kit}

Must Have Make-up Monday #1

Lip Stain

I’m always afraid my Lipstick is going to smear {especially bolder colors} and I also don’t like the feeling of having it on my lips. I can’t be the only one out there. 🙂 So I was forced to look for an alternative.

When I first begin the hunt for a lip stain I went to Sephora and asked what they recommended. They showed me Lorac lip/cheek stain which they don’t sell anymore. It was so horrible because it comes out darker in some areas and darker in your lip creases when you apply it with the roller it comes with. I also tried a lip brush and my finger but the outcome was the same. {You would have to do a lip scrub before to exfoliate all the dead skin because this stuff would make it extremely noticeable.} It was way more trouble than it was worth! It was about $27 and it spilled everywhere because the roller leaks. lol Another Blogger Reviewed The Revlon Just bitten lip stain and it Had the same effect… although the lorac stain was 10X more noticeable. Check out her review here.

I gave up on lip stains and had to deal with lipsticks until I went back for sephora’s holiday sale in December. I tried BITE cashmere lip Cream which then became my favorite. It feels light on your lips and has just a little bit of shine.  I Purchased Rioja and port {one is a bright red and the other is wine} I still love this lip cream but I found Something better Since then. These are kind of expensive at $28 a pop.

On my most recent visit to Sephora I came across the Sephora Collection Cream Lip Stain and Im very impressed.  I went out all day and ate and it still didn’t come off.{I love not having to reapply} You apply it as a cream and it dries perfectly Matte…Ive tried a couple of the other colors {Colors #6 &# 8} But they have a shimmer which I don’t like. Im looking forward to trying #2 & #3 because they are also matte.
