It’s really no secret that I love buying minis of products, so when I saw this new Sephora Favorites pop up I was very intrigued and decided to take the plunge and buy it! Obviously, it’s the Sunkissed Glow Kit so it’s full of bronzey shades and golden highlights. Sephora Favorites are great sets to pick up to try a bunch of deluxe to full-size products at a reasonable price (for Sephora that is)! Another perk of this set is everything comes in a really cute bronze makeup bag that can be used again and again! I needed a new makeup bag anyways, so it will come in handy.
Urban Decay Iconic Eyeshadow Half Baked | This is one of the full-sized products in the bag, and one that I really love! Urban Decay eyeshadows are great quality, and this one is in one of their most famous shades and one that I don’t have in my collection. It’s a really pretty gold shimmer that looks great all over the lid and perfect for summer.
Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Opal | This is one product that I have already tried before, but I really do love it! I picked up this set last summer to try out this highlighter and really enjoy this one. Of course, Becca is famous for their highlighters and they do not disappoint! Opal is a really pretty golden shade, but it looks great on my fair skin and does pack a punch on the skin. The packaging also looks just like the full-sized product, but mini!
Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzer Medium/Deep | Another product that I have tried before and love! I actually still have a sample of this shade that I’m using and have purchased the full-size in Milk Chocolate. It’s one of my favorite bronzers because the shade is not too cool-toned or warm-toned and makes the most natural bronze for my fair skin. I can get away with the darker shade when I use a light hand.
Hourglass Ambient Lighting Bronzer Luminous Bronze Light | This is one of the products that made me buy this bag! I have had my eye on Hourglass products for the longest time and this is a great way for me to try out one of their products! The pigmentation is so great, and the formula is very unique. I love the way it bronzes the skin and gives it a healthy amount of glow.
Marc Jacobs Highliner Ro(cocoa) | Another one that really made me buy this bag! I have tried out two other shades that I absolutely love! This is also a full-size product and an expensive one at that. I absolutely love brown eyeliners because they make my blue eyes pop! This has such a great formula is super easy to apply and very long lasting. Ro(cocoa) is more of a shimmery brown color and I love it!
Nars Lip Gloss Orgasm | This is the last full-size product, and the one I’m probably least excited about. I don’t wear a ton of lip products day to day and I really don’t love how lip glosses look on me. Orgasm is one of Nars’ most popular shades, in that very pretty pinky-peach shimmer. I like the lip-gloss (besides the huge amount of gold shimmer), but I probably won’t be using it a ton.
Laura Mercier Foundation Primer Radiance | This primer is so nice! It makes my skin smooth and adds a little radience to your skin. It’s such a generous sized product too that I feel like it’s going to last me forever (especially when I rarely do my makeup in the summer!)
Tarte Brazilliance Plus+ Self-Tanner | As a pale girl, I love using self-tanner. I usually just use tanners from the drugstore, so getting the chance to try out something high-end was nice. The size of this sample though is so small, I’ve only used it once on my legs and I feel like I used about half. I really did like the tanner though, it made my legs look tan and not orange at all. I’m thinking about purchasing a full-size when I finish this tiny sample!
MILK Makeup Liquid Strobe Beam | This is the huge fail of the bag, as it doesn’t even work. I read a few other reviews of other people’s not working as well so I think it’s just a flaw in the product. I’m really disappointed to have a product that I can’t even try. If you have tried this product, I’d love to know what you think.
I’m really happy I picked up this bag! I got nine full to deluxe sized products, and many of them I’m super happy to have in my collection. I still think these are great to pick up to try out new products and explore new makeup you wouldn’t normally pick up!
