My birthday is in early January and when I was young I did not like how my Christmas presents and birthday presents got mashed together and I was either left with nothing on Christmas or nothing on my birthday (depending on how badly I wanted whatever it was that I wanted). Some kids in school also talked about getting new year's gift which, if I did get one, was again equivalent to my Christmas and birthday gift. And that somehow felt unfair.
But I can think of one perk of being a January baby--I get to try Sephora birthday gifts as soon as they are released! As for 2016, Sephora is giving Beauty Insiders, VIBs, and VIB Rouges either a travel sized version of Fresh's Soy Face Cleanser and Rose Face Mask or mini Marc Jacob's Le Marc Lip Creme Lipstick and Highliner Gel Eye Crayon.
I have always wanted to try Fresh's Rose Face Mask but figured I will probably buy the full-sized one sooner or later anyway, so instead I opted for Marc Jacob's Beauty duo. And can I just say how amazing these are? The lipstick is in shade 216 Kiss Kiss Bang Bang and it is a deep rosy pink which I think would flatter all skin tones. Very creamy and applies like a dream. The full size is $30, and I might just have to get a full-sized version of this.
And that Highliner Gel Eye Crayon. WHAT IS THIS, A GIFT FROM GOD? After swatching, I tried to wipe it off and it did not budge nor smudge at all. I had to put about three times more effort getting this off than, say Bobbi Brown's Gel Eyeliner which I have been using on a daily basis. This would be so perfect to fill in the lashlines as I find it difficult to do so with a gel liner and a brush which gives me the most smudge-free look. The full size retails for $25 and there is no doubt I am picking this one up in full-size. Impressed much?
Do you own Marc Jacob's Beauty products? If so, which one is your favorite?
