NARS One Year Bolder 2015 Birthday Gift
The Sephora birthday gift for beauty insiders is a NARS lipstick set. Both of these lip sticks are VERY smooth/creamy. It almost feels like a lip balm. The colors are really pretty too.
I got a free sample of this from Sephora. I wasn't sure what to expect but I LOVE this foundation. It's really light but gives amazing coverage. It lasts pretty long too.
I've raved about the beauty blender before but I just love this makeup sponge. It blends your concealer, foundation, etc. flawlessly. I know some people have told me they don't enjoy the beauty blender as much as I do. One important thing is 1) always make sure you wet the sponge before you use it. Not only will this prevent a lot of product being absorbed in the sponge, but also it will expand the sponge drastically. Also, make sure you take care of the sponge. It's meant to be used for a long time, so take care of it. Using the beauty blender liquid cleanser with it is your best best because it's gentle. Honestly, if you use any other cleanser it's going to make the sponge a lot less soft and could damage the sponge.
Shiseido Foundation Brush
I bought this brush kind of on a whim. It's a lot smaller than I was expecting but I love this foundation brush. It's extremely soft and the size gives you optimal coverage.
