Sephora’s annual VIB 20% off sale took place earlier this month. I took this chance to stock-up on cosmetics and redeem my VIB points. My purchases during the VIB sales event included:
- NARS Creamy Radiant Concealer
- Too Faced Shadow Insurance
- Sephora Collection Daily Brush Cleaner
- Clinique Take the Day Off Cleansing Balm
- Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Drink of H20 Hydrating Boost Moisturizer
I’m writing separate reviews for each of these products, so stay tuned for those! I decided to share a peek into my Sephora bag, and offer a brief overview of my thoughts on the products.
Nars Creamy Radiant Concealer
I bought the shade Chantilly. Chantilly is a true ivory, and the lightest shade available. The concealer is creamy, and blends well. NARS concealers have a thick consistency. The doe-foot applicator is perfect for applying the concealer precisely where needed. I use it to conceal imperfections, and brighten underneath my eyes.
My eyeshadow often fades and flakes throughout the day. I picked this product up as I’ve had success with previous Too Faced Cosmetics purchases. The cream applies clear, and the tube tip allows for percise dispensing. This primer blends into the lid without leaving residue. My eyeshadow glides right over the top of the primer.
I searched for an effective brush cleaner for a while. Sephora Collection’s brush cleaner is in a spray bottle, and contains a lot of product. I tested it this past weekend, and was happy with the results! The cleaner is simple to use, and the spray itself is not runny.
Clinique Take the Day Off Cleansing Balm
I chose a sample of this balm as one of my 100-point perks. I’ve been excited to test this one – the formula transforms from a balm to oil to milk to remove makeup. My foundation is sometimes difficult to remove with a makeup remover wipe, so I’m interested to try this balm in comparison.
Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Drink of H2O Hydrating Boost Moisturizer
Another 100-point perk, this is a gel moisturizer. It contains hylauronic acid and Tarte’s Rainforest of the Sea antioxidants to hydrate and fortify the skin. It left my skin feeling smooth, soft, and hydrated. The gel is cooling on the skin.
