As you saw in a previous my Sunday Night Ramble post, I recently picked up some stuff from Sephora with the gift card they give Beauty Insiders and VIBs every year around Christmas. I have been wanting to try the brand Hourglass and I have been on a lipstick kick recently so I picked up a MLBB (My Lips But Better) color. I have also been dying to try Make Up For Ever Smoky Lash mascara because it always gets really great reviews. With every order you get to pick 3 samples and I also used the code “FromSephora” to get a Hello Kitty cosmetics bag filled with samples.
I will be reviewing the products I picked up soon. I want to get them a test run and get a good feel for the performance before I do that. I did want to show you pictures of my purchase so here goes…
The Make Up For Ever Smoky Lash mascara comes in a very nice sleek tube.
And the wand appears similar to most tradition wands, but the bristles appear a little thicker.
Here is the packaging on the Hourglass lipstick. I got the shade Fresco. It is very nice heavy packaging and is soo sleek. I love how the name of the brand is engraved into the cap.
The bullet of the lipstick is beautiful. It has an hourglass emblem indented into it–and as I said before, it looks like a little corset!
Here is Fresco swatched on my arm. It was very overcast when I did the swatches, but I wanted to get this post up as soon as possible. When I do the actual review I will swatch this in better lighting.
Here it is on my lips. It looks a little deeper in the tube but on the lips it is truly a gorgeous MLBB color. I am so happy I picked it up.
