Me & My Sephora Birthday Gift


Hi guys! Do you know that May is my birthday month? Well, May is an exciting month for me for many reasons month one of which is that I get to receive my Sephora‘s Birthday Gift (for FREE!) :).


This year there are three sets you can choose from (check out the other two on Sephora’s website here). Caudalie and Jack Black are both nice sets but since I’ve already have the Caudalie skincare products I skipped on that one. I really want to try the Jack Black but it’s only redeemable through online and since I was already in the store, I grabbed the Tarte Lip and Cheek set instead.

It includes:


1x Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Paaarty  

This shade is described as a gorgeous dusty pink which neither look too dusty on cheeks but is the most perfect toned down pink that isn’t too dark or too mauvy vibe to it … did that makes any sense? It’s so beautiful and richly pigmented that a little goes a long way. This is actually my second blush from this line and I love how creamy and smooth the formula is. It blends extremely well on cheeks and the shade is absolutely stunning. A perfect shade for summer it is.


If you need a natural look blush for a medium -light skin, this shade is for you. The best in every way and my all time favorite blush for every occasion.


1x Tartiest Creamy Matte Lip Paint in Birthday Suit 

Second one in this set is Birthday Suit and do allow me to talk about it for a sec. It’s truly matte and the neutral nude looks so flattering on my lips. It feels very comfortable and not drying at all. It’s definitely MLBB (My lips but better) and yet noticeable. I’m so much in love with it that I’ve been wearing it nonstop since I got it. This could be my perfect MLBB shade after all. I posted a #LOTD photo in my Instagram link wearing it.


You know it’s’ the one when —  (a) the lipstick is basically the same shade as your lips but adds just a bit more depth and intensity to your pout. (b) The one you can apply without a mirror and (c) after having four cups of coffee or tea and not mess it up.

To be completely honest, I was blown away to the point that when I’m done with this one, I’m most definitely picking the full sized version of Birthday Suit.

Glad you asked —  Did you know that you don’t have to even shop at Sephora to qualify for your free birthday gift?  All you’ve to do is sign up for a Beauty Insider account. Easy as 123! And if you’re already a member, don’t forget to redeem your birthday gift at the check out or in store the next time your birthday is coming up.

I don’t know about you but I love that the Sephora Birthday Gift comes at me with options this year.

So what are your thoughts on this year’s Sephora Birthday Gift? Anyone received it yet? Which one will you choose?

Thanks for taking the time to read. I’ll see you again on the next post :).
