Sephora Paint it Pink Box Birthday Goodie
I got this little gift from my good friend and fellow blogger Marge over at Frost and Polish. Make sure you pop over and say "hi". Along with a Boscisa sake face mask, this was such a fantastic gift that I wanted to share it with you.
These are all the deluxe sized goodies that come with the box. The box that it comes in is super cute, too. They all have a pink theme. I just love pink, so this is perfect for me!
First up is the BECCA Cosmetics Shimmering Skin Perfector in Pressed Rose Gold. This shade is a little dark for me now, but once I add that summer tan it will be perfect. I have heard so many great things about this highlighter so I was super pumped to see this in the box! It is creamy, super shiny and just perfection!
Next is a deluxe sample of benefit Cosmetics Roller Lash Mascara. I am a mascara hoarder so I am glad I can add another one to my collection. I do like the stiffer, silicone, short bristled brush. They really lengthen my lashes and keep them from clumping.
I have been eyeing up the Tarte Amazonian Clay 12- Hour Blush for quite some time. I am glad that I got this deluxe sample in the color Blissful because I got just enough to try. Along with my massive mascara collection, I am also a HUGE blush lover. This formula is smooth, creamy and applies very nicely. In the swatch below, I have 3 layers on just so you could see the color build. I would probably just use 2, but one is definitely not enough for me. It was too light.
This next product is one that I cannot live without. The Original Beauty Blender is one of those products that I just can't seem to find a dupe for. Every blender knock-off that I have found just doesn't have it. These are able to retain moisture without sopping your face and still evenly apply your makeup. I just love these. I have them in just about every color, shape and size.
I am in total love with the color of this Laura Mercier Velour Lovers Lip Colour. I mean, it is the perfect dusty rose pink! It is called French Kiss and that is super fitting because I feel like that's what I want to do to this lipstick...lol. It is creamy, smooth and nicely pigmented. I give this lipstick and A+. This is kind of an issue for me because this is the second Laura Mercier Lipstick that I have tried and I am head over heels. So bad, that I need more (like I don't have enough)!
Of course there has to be a nail polish in this fantastical box. Deborah Lippmann Nail Polish is a favorite of mine. I love this very, very light pink color. It is perfect for summer. When I don't feel like painting every other day and since it's so light, it's hard to tell the chips. The color is called Baby Love.
This is another full-sized product and it's from Urban Decay. I love UD shadows so I am so pumped that they included an this Urban Decay Eyeshadow in the color Scratch. It's a beautiful, shimmery pink color that just goes on like buttah! Seriously, like butter! It is beautifully pigmented and blends even more beautifully.
Last, but not least, is the Make Up For Ever Artist Plexi-Gloss in the color 202. This is the perfect pouty nude gloss. It is not sticky or tacky which makes for the perfect gloss, right? I love the peachy pink tint this gloss has, too. It's a perfect pocket-size for me, too.
Overall, I love all of the items in this box. I think it's a fantastic value (even though I got it for a birthday gift). I would totally buy another one if Sephora came out with a Paint It... (any other color) Box. What do you think of the products in this box? Do you already own any of these?
