January being my birthday month is exciting for many reasons, one of which is that I get to receive my Sephora's Birthday Gift. It's really fun to not have to wait till the end of the year to get what everyone else has been getting for the previous eleven month (happy I'm not a December baby) but instead to get something before others.  And more so because the blogging spirit inside of me loves sharing it on my blog :).

This year there are three sets you can choose from (check out the other two on sephora's website here). Caudalie and Jack Black are both nice sets, but as I am more interested in blushes and lipsticks than any skincare product, I grabbed the Tarte Lip and Cheek Set. It includes Paaarty blush and Birthday Suite Lip Paint and honestly I was completely blown away to the point that when I am done with these, I am most definitely picking the full sized versions.

Let me first talk about this Tarte Paaarty blush: it is the most gorgeous dusty pink color that doesn't look too dusty on the cheeks but is the most perfect toned down pink that doesn't have too much mauvey vibe to it and isn't too dark...did that make any sense? I hope it did because there is no better way for my inarticulate self to explain it. In the photos you see below, these colors look super brown and coral but seriously forget these colors you see here but check out the color that appears on my cheeks (I'll try to take better photos next time and replace these as soon as I am done traveling). It is so beautiful and is super crazy pigmented that I beg you to only use the tiniest amount (it'll be more than sufficient!).  It's actually feels creamier and more pigmented than a similar colored matte eyeshadow from other brands. Because I don't like anything color, pink, or reddish on my cheeks during winter, I'm a big fan of Nars Impassioned for such light slightly dusty pink to wear during the colder months, but this is probably going to replace Impassioned because of its pigmentation and warmer color (Impassioned is more lavender. Stay tuned for a review of this blush).

Second one in this set is Tarte Lip Paint in Birthday Suite. If you follow me on instagram (@haekunamatata) you may be aware that I am a diehard fan of Wet n Wild's lipstick in Bare It All. It is my holy grail of all lipsticks but I freaking hate the packaging (but I'm not really complaining at all because it's like what, $2?!) Anyhow, I thought Birthday Suite would be very similar to Kat Von D's Lolita II but actually it is slightly lighter than Lolita II and is more similar to Bare It All! Lolita II can make me look a bit too mature (in other words, old) but this is the most perfect neutral MLBB shade! Actually if there is a tiniest drop of extra peach to it, it would equal to Bare It All, but honestly I'm so much in love with it that I've been wearing it nonstop since I got it.

So what are your thoughts on this year's Sephora Birthday Gift? Anyone received it yet? :)

XOXO,
