Beauty News Sephora Beauty Insider V.I.B. Membership

sephora

I’m a V.I.B.! Ha! Jealous? You have no idea what I’m talking about right? Sephora has taken the liberty of spamming my inbox this morning with my honorary badge of V.I.B-ery aka Very Important Beauty Insider. Honestly, I’m always knew I was extremely important, no joke, and it simply tickles me that Sephora now knows too!

Click it for further deets on how I’m down with the V I B and what it’s all about!

If you spend a gazillion dollars a year at Sephora they’ll beef up your Sephora Beauty Insider account and make it a V.I.B. account. Gawd, I love how Sephora is like a McDonald’s Happy Meal lately. You get a prize and a treat around every corner, SCORE!

Not only did they take the time out to send me a 10% off coupon that I can use in store or online (I’ll share it later on if I’m able too…not sure if it’s one use or not) but they also gave me a slew of new options with my beauty insider membership.

So the basic deals are you get invites to special events…no info as of yet what those events could be but I imagine it’s probably a buncha junkies gathering around some new product or something similar. On top of this you get bigger, badder freebies and access to not yet launched products…..meh all exciting I guess. Also you get access to the V.I.B. hot line….ummmm I’m guessing this is where you can discuss makeup porn with other junkies..kidding, kidding. But yes they have a hot line I suppose it’s for skin care, make up advice….again pretty cool perk.

All exciting yes but the biggest, bestest, most incredible thing evers?

Holiday Gift Card!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Everyone run around in circles and get excited! They are rewarding you now for spending buckage at Sephora! You read that right! The more you spend the more you’ll get on a gift card. No details are really confirmed in the e-mail but from what I gather they’ll be giving you a gift card towards the holiday with a dollar amount courtsey of the money you’ve spent at Sephora all through the year!

Sweet!

Check your inbox dears and maybe you’ll find your invite inside!

Nice job Sephora keep up the cool freebie-ness we all appreciate it in tough economic times.

Sephora Moroccan Sunrise Palette Review and Swatches

Ahh Sephora, you cheeky little monkey, it delights me endlessly when you shock and surprise me. We gently touched on the subject of Sephora’s Spring Collection entitled Moroccan Sunrise way back when. Please tell me you recall? We were all so awed by the prospect of such a pretty collection put out, no less, by Sephora. Indeed, Sephora sneaks up on occasion and releases little itty bitty items that are awesome.

Sephora+Moroccan+Sunrise+Palette+9

Awesome would fall on the heals of the Sephora Moroccan Sunrise Palette, perhaps awesome isn’t even a suitable adjective to use. Great? Fabulous? Gorgeous perhaps?

Jump for it!

I do feel slight guilty I’m spreading the good cheer about a Spring palette in the Summer but you’ll be happy to know 1. the palette is still very available and 2. it’s pretty stunning for Summer anyway color wise!

Some of the Sephora Moroccan Collection has since gone on clearance and everyday I head over to peep and see if this palette pops up on sale too, but ado, it’s still $32. But it’s well spent money in my opinion.

First off, you may have to get pass the idea that although very pretty in design the palette is very cheap. It looks like a heavy gold plated palette but in fact it’s cheap plastic so it can easily break if dropped. Also they include a dual ended rubbish brush with it. What they think you’re going to do with a brush that’s this skinny is beyond me as it can be used, at best, as a liner brush and in no way can apply the shadows enclosed in the compact.

Aside from these rants I must say the shadows inside are absolute gems. Smoldering Summer ready colors with a pigmented, easy to blend formula await you in six shades. Combine and blend together for a sizzling Summer look or wear them alone for several different looks!

The palette includes a fiery orange, a champagne beige, a shimmering coffee brown, a matte nude brown, and a flirty coral pink. All the shades are stunning and quite unique particularly the pink and pretty orange. Five of the shadows have a shimmer finish where as the sixth is matte. In my opinion they did the palette unjust by releasing it as part of the Spring Collection since, for me, it makes a way better Summer release.

My first look I used the champagne beige as a highbrow highlighter and the orange on my lid with a bit of pink coral blended into the crease. For my second loos below I used the champagne beige and coffee brown to contrast.

My camera’s flash picks up shimmer in a major way so a better representation of the shadow finish is this last photo!

Overall, the palette is a pure joy and a very nice find from Sephora. I think it’s worthy of a pick up if you’re looking for an array of tropical, sunny shades this Summer! Muse Approved for purchase.
