Sephora Birthday Gift/Purchases/VIB Box

Happy 2013 everyone!

Woah, I haven't been keeping up with my blog. My last post was in 2011! Yikes!! I'll try to blog more often since I'm still currently looking for a job. >< Job market is horrible right now. It's so hard to even land on an interview. :( Post college is worst than being in school (well, only if you're jobless and loans repayments are kicking in).

Anyways, enough of post college talk. My birthday was a couple of weeks ago and my best friend got me a gift card to Sephora and as you all know Sephora have a brand new birthday gift, it was perfect timing for me to use the gift card and get the gift as well. I purchased two things, I bought the Eyeko mascara and eyeliner set and a Tarte blush in Blissful. As I was checking out, I got a surprised. When they gave me my birthday gift, the rang the bell and yelled out "HAPPY BIRTHDAY" which was surprising. I don't think I remember the Sephora I went to last year did that. Also, I'm on the VIB list again for this year and they me a little gift. The weird thing is that my best friend is also on the VIB list but she didn't get one. I'm not sure is it selective or the person who rung her up just didn't give her one. O.O?

As you can see, there's a coupon for 10% off your purchase, free shipping coupon (although I don't think that was quite useful since they offer free shipping if you purchase over $50 and which in my case I always do), a free 45 minutes makeup session with a beauty expert, and lastly an updated beauty insider card. It also comes with a mirror with VIB Beauty Insider printed on it (the last picture).

Lastly, here's some pictures of the items I bought and the birthday gift.

The birthday gift is from Benefit and it comes with a highlighter and a mascara. I have yet to try them so I'll update again when I do. I did try the mascara from Eyeko and it does lengthen my eyelashes, however, it doesn't hold curls. :( My eyelashes went stick straight after 10 minutes of application. :( So that was bummer for me. I haven't try the eyeliner yet so I'll update again after trying it. The Tarte blush is very pigmented and I just need a little bit for the color to show. This is definitely a pretty color for everyday look. I'm sure most of you guys already know from other makeup gurus. Well that's it for today. I'll try to post more often for this year. :)
