Make Up For Ever Birthday Gift [Sephora]

 

Shopping at Sephora has some fun perks sometimes..like the Make Up Forever Birthday Gift set that one can avail during or after your birthday month for free! The Beauty Insider Gift set contains a Mascara sample + Lipstick sample while VIB Rouge members also get an additional Eyeliner. I picked up the Beauty Insider set on my latest Sephora Online Haul and this is what this little kit looks like –

The Set contains –

Make Up For Ever Rouge Artist Natural Lipstick in shade N9 : Copper Pink

The tiny lipstick is really cute and I love the color! Its a brownish rose shade with very faint shimmer that applies more of a peachy brown my medium complexion (the reddish/rose tone will pop more on lighter complexions). It looks a lot darker in the tube but looks very natural and wearable on the lips. I like the silky, light weight texture, soft glossy finish and lightly staining formula. It applies sheer in one swipe and can be built up in 2-3 swipes. It wears quite well (about 4 hours) though I don’t find the formula as hydrating as I expected. The color is gorgeous though!

 

Make Up For Ever Smoky Extravagant Mascara

I was looking forward to trying this since I have never tried MUFE mascaras but this was a huge letdown for me. I don’t like the conical mascara wand, the thicker part of the brush hardly seems to pick up product and the lower end gets clogged with excess product. It didn’t do much for my lashes – it added length but barely any volume and worst of all, it clumped when I tried to layer it. I found the huge brush difficult to manoeuvre as well. Not so happy with this! On the upside, it is waterproof and doesn’t budge or flake at all throughout the day.

    & I can expect mascara is the downside on this kit .. The brush of the mascara is quite odd in shape.. Looking cute but I can expect the performance… I also hate mascaras that clumps that really spoils the look..

    The lipstick is super gorgeous. Was looking too dark in the tube though. The mascara want looks like a total failure.

    The lipstick looks great on you. The wand of the mascara does look a little tricky but MUFE Aqua Lash is one of my favorite mascaras!
