Its about that time again, a plastic bag full of products that had my name on it and a sign that said “take me home”. I took mine home a little earlier than expected because there were 2 products that I wanted to take home ASAP to save my skin. If you didn’t know already, Sephora gives out gratis to their cast which is free product. There are a few different ways to get product and those are:
- All Cast Gratis (brand gives everyone that works there the same product)
- Training with Brand Rep
- Winning a Contest
- Selling Products (With Brand Rep)
I love getting gratis because I can give clients my own experience with the product and I actually know what I’m talking about so its an easier sell. But I also love getting it because I mean who doesn’t want free products? Its saving me money because I don’t have to go out and purchase new makeup or skin care.
All cast gratis
- Philosophy Purity Cleanser
- Philosophy Amazing Grace Shower gel
- Philosophy Hope in a Jar
- Lancôme Monsieur Big
- Youth to the People Age Prevention Superfood Mask
- Marc Jacobs Noir Mascara
These were all extras from last months gratis from Philosophy, which I’m not complaining about because I love Purity and Amazing Grace! I also received the Marc Jacobs mascara before as well but I actually liked that mascara but the packaging is so big and bulky.
Training with Reps
- Stellar Brilliance Primer
- Smashbox Always On liquid lipstick in Stepping Out
- Makeup Forever Artist Liquid Matte in 105
- Smashbox Always On Gel Liner in Fishnet
- Makeup Forever Starlit Liquid in Arctic White
I am so excited for all of this! I tried the Stellar primer and it gives my skin a glow! My makeup lasted all day when I wore that primer. The other thing I tried was the Makeup Forever Liquid Matte and at first it felt nice and lightweight but toward the end of the day my lipstick was so drying and it disappeared completely. As for the Smashbox liquid lip, I already own it in that color and I love their formula and the applicator!
Update: The Makeup Forever Liquid lip went on nicely it felt light weight but after about an hour it started to crumble, fade and feel heavy on the lips!
- Fresh Sugar Face Polish
- Fresh Umbrian Clay Mask
- Fresh Lip Caramel Lip Balm
So off the bat, I LOVE my Caramel lip balm. It smells amazing and keeps my lips hydrated all day. As for the Umbrian Clay, one of my new favorite masks. But, it can be used as a mask, cleanser and a spot treatment which I love and my skin has cleared up from using this mask!
I would love to give you guys my reviews on the other products as I get a good feel for them! Have you tried any of these?
