This has got to be the one I was most excited about. The Sephora Favorites Trending: Beauty's Most Coveted set contains 12 bestsellers, ranging from a variety of different beauty trends. I love that this set has many different types of items, rather than sticking to one theme. You can create a whole look with this set alone, which could also make a great Christmas gift to those who you may have problems shopping make-up for! I find it hard to pin point a particular make-up product as a gift for someone, so why not purchase a set with a variety of items?
On the box, the sticker says the set contains $263 values worth of items, for only $90. Now $90 may seem steep for a set with many deluxe items, but there are a few full sized ones too! I will be doing a break down of the value of each item, and we shall see at the end if this set is worth your money.
I love that you get a full sized Beauty Blender with this set. I could always use more Beauty Blenders. I love that it's the nude one as well because my pink Beauty Blenders are super stained, and this one will always look clean when I use it haha.
As cute as the Foreo Luna Play is, I don't think this product is worth the value at all. Because it's not chargeable, the claims are that you can use it up to 100 uses. I've heard many people say that it works for way less than that, which can be disheartening, considering you're throwing it away once it's dead. I'd be pretty disappointed to throw away $50 after a few uses! I myself own the Foreo Luna Mini 2, and I absolutely LOVE it. Just go for the rechargeable full sized one. Don't waste your time on the play version! I'll probably be saving this for when I go on vacation and want something to use for a week or so, rather than bringing my full sized one.
The Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder is already one of my holy grail products. I love using this setting powder to bake under my eyes, t-zone area, and to mattify my face. I could build the coverage and it doesn't get cakey at all. This is the travel sized version, which I'm going to love to carry around with me, especially on my long work days. It also came with a puff too, so I don't have to worry about carrying a brush with me. Don't worry about a crazy white cast either, this product does the job, and keeps everything matte for hours.
I'm in love with Becca Cosmetics X Jaclyn Hill Champagne Pop. I actually wanted to try out Moonstone to see how I liked it, so it was a nice surprise to see it in the set.
Moonstone is a very light pale gold, which may seem a bit chalky on my skin. I'll have to really test it on my face to see how I like it first before giving a full review on the shade. For a first impression though, it's cute, probably will look best on my winter skin since I get a lot lighter.
I was shocked to see that when I did the math for this, the deluxe size is still almost $20. The price for the regular size one is almost $80, so I guess in a way it makes sense. I've been really interested in skin care lately, and Glamglow is definitely one of the brands I've been looking to try. I will probably be doing a review on this in the near future!
This lipstick is described as a matte bright red, and man is it gorgeous. The lipstick glides like a dream, and the colour is very opaque and intense. Even though it's a matte formula, it's not overly drying.
I was pretty sure I did a review on this concealer a while ago, but of course I can't find it in my copious amount of reviews. This used to be one of my favourite concealers to use, but the downside was the price point.
This is actually quite the peculiar product. Apparently this little tube is the full size (it's tiny in person). so it's crazy that it's $24. When swatched, the colour is gorgeous. The only thing with stick highlighters, is that it's always hard to blend. I usually stray away from stick highlighters because I have oily skin, and I tend to cake my face with powder to set everything. My last step is usually my highlighter, and the fact that it's stick makes it difficult to blend out without ruining my foundation.
I have yet to try this product yet, but I am quite excited to. I may do a separate review on this once I do try it, to let you guys know my thoughts. It's suppose to be a 4-in-1 mist. It's a setting spray, primer, hydrating mist and skin refresher in one. So many things!
Why was this my first time trying this product?? This is one of the best eyeliners I've ever used, hands down. It doesn't smudge at all, and it doesn't get flakey when you want to reapply layer after layer. I'm one of those people who need to make my liner thicker and thicker because I'm terrible at making clean lines. This eyeliner is amazing.
I've been experimenting a lot with the new Benefit products, and I'm excited to try this one. I've been using the Anastasia brow gel for a while, so this one should be up my alley. The shade does appear to be a lot lighter than what I'm used to, but it should be able to work out okay.
I honestly thought this was a really big eyeliner pencil, but it turns out to be an eyeshadow stick, eyeliner, and primer in one! It has a built in sharpener at the base, which is amazing, and the versatility of this product makes it definitely a stand out in this set. The black is SUPER dark and very pigmented. I'll probably be using it on days I want striking, dark smoky eyes!
