Birthday Beauty Freebies

Beauty samples.

So my birthday was last week, and to kick off my week of celebrations, I headed over to Sephora to receive my free “Beauty Insider” birthday present. I LOVE Sephora’s Beauty Insider program. It’s a great way to try out new samples and get rewarded for being slightly obsessed with buying beauty products. Here is what was in my “present”:

Benefit Watt’s Up Champagne Highlighter – This is perfect to stick in your clutch for a night out. I put a little on each cheekbone, under my brow arches and a little on my lips to add a little shimmer. You could even use this on your inner eye corners to brighten up your face on a long day.

Benefit They’re Real Mascara – I really like this mascara. While I normally swear by my Buxom Mascara, this little guy proved to be really effective. There is a spiky ball on the end of the wand for you to use vertically to get some extra oomph (and to separate any clumps) after you apply your first few coats. Another great item to throw in a bag or use for travel.

I’m all about trying out samples to find my next go-to products. For my real birthday present, I got a subscription to Birchbox, so expect plenty of product reviews to come :).
