SEPHORA GLITZ & GLAM PARTY SAMPLER
Ahhh… Look at all those sparkly goods. Don’t you just love the holidays (and GLITTER!)? And for $45, this set is a STEAL!! A steal, I tell you!! I’m certainly happy that I ordered it when I did because it is no longer available on Sephora.com. Usually they will still feature items and just say “out of stock”, this is no longer on the website anywhere.
Sephora fans know that the Sephora team can put together quite the set. I’ve purchased a couple of their sets (sampler or not) in the past and I am never disappointed. I spotted the Glitz and Glam sampler and purchased it immediately. It is packed full of fabulous finds to rock it this holiday season.
I made this purchase before Halloween and I’ve had plenty of time to play with the goods; I am in love with everything in this set. (There’s so much! and so much SPARKLE!) If you read my post from back when I ordered this originally, you know that I had to send back my entire set and have it replaced because the Lorac product was cracked open during delivery. It was well worth it though because that Lorac product just might be my absolute favorite product in this sampler. (I’ll get to the Lorac specifics soon enough)
Everything came inside a delightful gold makeup bag. It’s a metallic, “distressed” bag and it’s the perfect size for your daily picks. That’s exactly what I do; Whatever combo of products I’m using for the day, I pack into this bag and carry with me. But what is more important are the goodies inside; here goes!
Stila – Duo Shimmer Powder :: KITTEN :: As an eye shadow, this is a little too sheer for my tastes but as a highlighter and overall face powder, I love it!
Laura Mercier – Baked Eye Color Wet/Dry :: BLACK KARAT :: I love Laura Mercier products and this wet/dry shadow is amazing. This shadow takes your smokey eye and turns it into the perfect holiday smokey eye. glistening from the dark are gold sparkles; just enough for a glitzy pop of sparkle.
bareMinerals – Eyecolor :: GOOD FORTUNE :: This shimmery powder isn’t restricted to use on only your eye lids. It’s perfect for giving your cheek bones a nice shimmer too!
Sephora by OPI – Nail Color :: Looks Like Rain, Dear :: Crummy picture, I know, but this polish packs a powerful punch of holiday cheer. (And I think the name is kind of adorable.) Great color to bring you into the New Year!
Josie Maran – GOGO Instant Natural Volume Argan Mascara :: BLACK :: I like Josie Maran products and this mascara is no exception. It’s great to have on hand but it’s really no more special than any other black, volumizing mascara.
Nars – 1oz Body Glow :: This stuff is amazing! I don’t know what I’ve been doing my whole life without it. I like to rub some of this amazing body glow on my upper chest, collar bones and shoulders for a beautiful party shimmer. Makes me feel like a Bond girl every time I wear it! *One of my favorite products in the set!*
Lorac – 3D Liquid Lustre :: GOLD :: This product and the Nars Body Glow are my two favorite products in the set. This one is perfect for brightening up your face for party-mode. When I combine this Liquid Lustre with any of my eye shadows, it completely transforms the color and look! I will definitely buy a bottle of this baby again in the future! (This is the products that broke during shipping when I originally received my Glitz and Glam sampler set. I’m so glad I had it replaced!)
Bare Escentuals – Marvelous Moxie Lipgloss :: TRAIL BLAZER :: I love the marvelous moxie lip glosses from bare escentuals. I was so happy that this set came with a full size tube. The color is the perfect nude with a hint of rosie pink. High gloss shine. A win in my book!
Stila – Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner :: STARFISH :: I’m a big fan of Stila’s smidge stick liners. I almost bought one of these when I was cashing in my Birchbox points before cancelling my subscription with them and I’m glad I didn’t because I got one in this marvelous sampler pack!
There you have it! The Sephora Favorites Glitz and Glam Party Sampler! I hope Sephora restocks this one for the future; it’s definitely a fantastic buy! 9 completely amazing, to-die-for products for $45… you can’t go wrong.
