For those of you who don't know tomorrow is actually my birthday. I turn 19 years old tomorrow and that is just absolutely bonkers because I feel like I turned 18 just yesterday. Time really speeds up when you're getting older and that also means that we need to enjoy every moment as much as we can because it's gone in a flash. Something that I found really neat was that some of my favourite stores such as Sephora and Ulta actually give you a little birthday treat within your birthday month. If you're signed up to their rewards program, you receive a little email where you get to claim a birthday beauty treat. Sephora offered a little sample set from Make Up Forever and I was super stoked to receive this treat since I hadn't yet dabbled in the world of Make Up Forever.
The set came with their Smoky Extravagant Mascara and a little mini tube of their Rouge Artist Natural Lipstick in shade N9. These are both travel sized products so they are mini but it's such a treat to receive them for free. The mascara has a very interesting brush that really intrigued me and although it's not really comparable to my favourite wands such as the Benefit They're Real Mascaras', it's handy and good for on the go. The lipstick as well is a very nice product. I was definitely pleasantly surprised when I swatched this baby and realised it wasn't a bright red. The colour is a tone of red but rather a subdued pinky red that can look natural and soft without having to be a harsh intense shade. I do love that they provided two products that are versatile and any girl could use. Lipstick and Mascara are always a must-have and it gave me a little taste of MakeUp Forever that really convinced me to look into buying some of their full sized products.
I think birthday rewards are so lovely and that Sephora has all these perks is always a plus when you shop there as much as I do. Be sure to sign up to your favourite stores online programs because they usually provide you with little nifty treats and great discounts, especially in your birthday month. Let your favourite store celebrate with you and pick up one of these Make Up Forever Gift Sets when it's your birthday month.
