Review/Feature: Sephora- lots of limited edition holiday items!


There isn’t a woman out there that doesn’t like Makeup/Skincare/Beauty goodies on some sort of level. I am not really extreme with make up- I don’t mind some eyeshadow now and then or some blush or mascara or something of those sorts. However, I really do like concealers and lip glosses and various lotions and potions!

I have a vast collection of all things makeup/skincare/beauty that I have collected over the years, and I recently did a big purge of some of the older stuff, so needless to say I have been ready to get some new awesome exciting goodies and perk my stash back up!

So when I was offered a chance to feature some of these items for review here on Autumn-Rain from  Sephora I jumped on the chance!

I received an AWESOME variety of goodies from Sephora to feature! It was one of those times where it was like I opened Christmas up out of a box (which rarely happens, but I have had it happen twice this year, WAHOO)! Seriously, just check out the preview of my box of goodies:

(Front Row:Sephora Golden Star Eyelash Curler, Xpress Pod Gift Tags,All Access Glam: Gold & Silver eye and face palette-Back row: Glam Glow-Gift Sexy)

Xpresss Pod Gift Tags

This is a gift that you can give all to one person or break up into separate presents! up to 7 presents!  You can simply write your TO: and From: on the box OR use each of the 7 gift tags to pop on peoples presents!  I like how versatile it is! I also like how it is in such a tiny package and so innovative!

The concept is simple all you have to do is:
POP- this is simply twisting the cap open and it will give you a brush!
PRESS: until nail polish fills your brush!
PAINT:There is enough for all ten fingers and 2 coats!

The colors include: Invincible, Perfection, Intensity, Curiosity, Blazing, Vivacious, Pedal to the Metal

All Access Glam: Gold & Silver eye and face palette $15

There are 8 Eyeshadow,4 blushes and 1 luminizer in this palette that you can mix and match! You can be golden glam or Sultry Silver!

I like the versatility of this one with being able to get 2 separate styles of looks out of one item.

It is also small enough that you could take it on the go with you and fairly inexpensive  as well.

I also think that the compact that it comes in is cute as well!

Glam Glow:Gift Sexy$69

This is one nifty little set! There is a trio of treatment masks and I have to say I am most anxious to give them a try! Even though it doesn’t say so I am planning to try the hydrating and clearing one on this evil winter skin /rash i tend to get on my leg! I will try to write a blurb about it later on if it helped or not!

This set contains:
-1.7 oz THIRSTYMUD™ Hydrating Treatment

Sephora Golden Star Eyelash Curler:

I have to say eyelash curlers scare me lol. I am lucky to have really nice eyelashes from the get go, but i know that there are lots of people out there that use this little things! I knew a gal in high school and she used to use one of these things on the bus lol.  I

did like the way this one was packaged- In a hardshell with a ribbon on top .. you could even hang it on the christmas tree for someone. I also liked that it was pink and gold!
