Sephora had an event yesterday for VIB/Rouge to preview and buy holiday sets in advance (you also get x2/x3/x4 points all week if you are BI/VIB/Rouge). I really went to pick up my free birthday present, to stuff myself with free pastries and didn’t really need anything. It’s a nice event since it’s not super crowded, there’s plenty of food and the staff are super friendly. I was going to grab a pack of Shiseido cotton and get out, but then I saw this… I couldn’t keep my eyes off the Marc Jacobs clutch. It’s SHINY! It’s PINK! It’s got a big tassel and it’s Marc Jacob! Oh right, it’s also got mini lipsticks in it, if you are interested.Marc Jacobs is one of my favorite fashion designer. While I love LOVE Highliner, the brushes, the blushes and the nail polishes, I just don’t care for the lip liner or Kiss Pop. However, these lipsticks are pigmented, easy to apply and moisturizing on the lips. The colors are: No Angel (apricot nude), Slow Burn (creamy nude rose), OH Miley! (strawberry spice), Miss Scarlet (deep ruby), and Scandal (intense plum). The vanilla scent is barely noticeable, it has a creamy finish and leaves a beautiful even stain even after you wipe off the lipstick.
Ok, I like the lipsticks, now let’s talk about the clutch. I LOVE the clutch! It’s a beautiful fuchsia with a slight metallic sheen. The outside feels like soft smooth patent and slightly padded. It is a hard case, structured and made of polyester fabric inside. The clutch is 1-1.5in tall. It is big enough to hold a few card, but barely able to hold my Galaxy Note phone (it’s just a hair too narrow with the phone case on, it can hold an iphone fine). I’m not exactly sure when I’ll use the clutch, but it’s beautiful and I love it. The clutch looks and feels like something that would cost $50, and did I mention that I love it?
I obviously bought it for the beautiful clutch but the mini lipsticks are nice as well. They are pigmented, long-lasting, easy to apply and this set is a great introduction if you don’t want to splurge for a full size yet. Here’s the ingredients list for the 5 mini lipsticks.
So, will you be getting it, or other holiday sets?
