The 2017 Sephora VIB Rouge Renewal Gift popped up a few months ago on their website and it’s a Sephora Pro Mini Flawless Airbrush. Did I hear a possible sign of disappointed? If I’m honest I got more joy out of the Sephora 2016 VIB Rouge Renewal Gift and of course, from mini Bite Beauty VIB Rouge Creme Lipstick they give (or gave) in the VIB Rouge Welcome Kits.
So, I spent over $1000 at Sephora and I got a mini makeup brush? This reminds me of one of those bad t-shirts that reads, “My family went to Hawaii and all I got was this T-Shirt!”
I hit Rouge status a few months ago but only just recently did the 2017 Rouge Renewal Gift pop up online so during a recent order I popped it into my cart. Because hey, free is free right? It comes in a bright red draw string bag and is a little smaller than a MAC Holiday Mini Makeup Brush. It has a short bright red handle with very densely packed synthetic bristles. It’ll be good for foundation application but powders or blushes are a no good as the bristles are a little too tightly packed for such application. The bristles are soft and had no issues with shedding.
It’s a nice brush, I have no complaints but I use my fingers 99% of the time for foundation application which renders it useless for me.
I’m, of course, willing to rant about the fact I spend a stupid amount of money at Sephora every year and the the thing they’d thought I’d like as a renewal gift is a really small makeup brush?
I think they could do a bit better than this.
Did you get your renewal gift?
Were you happy with it?
