I’ve been so busy these last few months, I completely forgot to post about Sephora’s VIB Rouge 2014 birthday gift! This year, Sephora features products by Make Up For Ever, a brand I adore.
In the little box comes 3 minis: Aqua Eyes in 0L, Smoky Extravagant mascara, and Rouge Artist Natural lipstick in N9. VIB and VIB Rouge birthday gifts are slightly different. Everyone receives the mascara and lipstick minis, and Rouge also receives the mini eyeliner.
I won’t swatch the eyeliner because it’s just basic black – long lasting and amazing, of course, but I do want to showcase the really cute lipstick, which I threw in my purse as soon as I got it.
Rouge Artist Natural in N9 doesn’t look like a color I would normally wear in the tube. In actuality, it’s so light and looks super pretty & natural on me – a great neutral tone I can wear anytime. It’s sheer, so I can swipe once for an easy wash of color, or apply it heavier for slightly deeper coloring. It’s also very moisturizing, and my lips feel quenched while wearing this.
I do plan on buying this in full size as soon as this mini runs out, which won’t be for a while. The mini is a good amount of product and will probably take me months to finish up.
