*Spoiler Alert* If you don't want to know what Sephora's VIB birthday gift is, don't read this!
Like always Sephora is providing a free birthday gift for their members! This year Beauty Insider gets to choose from either a skin care set from Fresh or a makeup set from Marc Jacobs. As some of you might know, January was my birthday month, so I picked up my gift already. I chose the makeup set (Obviously!!) I was really excited, yet a little disappointed because last year VIB Rouge member got something extra. Now that I am a Rouge member, they are not giving out extra gift for Rouge Member this year. Anyways, I really like the Marc Jacobs set! It includes a Marc Jacobs lipstick in Kiss Kiss Bang Bang and Highliner in 42 Blacquer. (both mini size) Here's what I think about them...
Highliner Gel Eye Crayon Eyeliner in #42 Blacquer
WOW, I have never tried any eyeliner from Marc Jacobs Beaut. This one is ridiculously awesome! First, I love how luxurious looking the packaging is and that it is a twist up, so I don't need to sharpen it! It's a gel eyeliner that glides on the lid smoothly, the color is intense and opaque. It does not tug the lashes at all. You are able to smudge it out a little before it sets, but once it's set, it's not going anywhere! It's always a dilemma, I want my eyeliner to stay in place and not run around during the day, but this also means that it will be hard to take it off at the end of the day. To my surprise though, I am actually able to remove the liner with my BioDerma (the regular formula). Bioderma is a miceller water that cleanses the face and removes makeup.
Le Marc Lip Creme Lipstick in Kiss Kiss Bang Bang
I always thought their lipstick was drying hence I never really wanted to try it. But when I received the VIB Rouge entrance gift last year, a mini Marc Jacobs Lipstick in So Rouge, I changed my mind. The le Marc Lip Creme Lipstick is hydrating, creamy and with gorgeous color! Kiss Kiss Bang Bang is described as a baked rose color, like a dark rosey pink color. I would say this is a neutral everyday bold lip color. For my lips, it compliments my natural lip color so this can be a everyday lip color for me. One thing I don't really like is the scent of the lipstick when I first put it on, they remind me of the Color Pop or Mac lipsticks. However, the scent goes away after a little while. Another great thing about this lipstick is that even though it is hydrating, it is also super long lasting. I had this lipstick on yesterday, it first lasted 4 hours of constant talking. After I had Nando's for dinner, I went to check on my lipstick, thinking I need to reapply. But NO! It's still there! Now, the glossy top layer is gone because I wiped it off, but the color is still there, and not patchy at all!!!! It also didn't dry out my lips at all, I was so amazed. After an additional 3 hours, when I am removing my makeup, my lip color was still there. I really recommend this lipstick! I want more of it now!
Okay, I know I got a little to carried away because both products are awesome!!!!!
