Sephora VIB Rouge

You receive Sephora Rouge after spending $1,000 for that year. I received the above red box with a gift for becoming a VIB Rouge Member. The NARS blush that I got is a lovely shade that matches with practically any makeup look!

My Thoughts on VIB Rouge

Not being a professional makeup artist with years of experience,  it’s nice to be able to look great on my blog and instagram with the help of Sephora professionals ! I’m learning more everyday on how to do perfect makeup. I use to walk into Sephora and when I asked for help I would be able to get good color suggestions. Now when I go into Sephora and get my makeup done, not only are the products good colors for me but I am introduced to an entire look with products that work well together. I also learn how to apply them professionally. I have heard that they do not give a gift every year for becoming VIB Rouge which seems a little strange to me, but you still get a birthday gift with a purchase (unfortunately you have to buy something). Overall I think it’s super worth it to spend the money to get to VIB Rouge status if you are interested in makeup or have a lot of special events coming up within the year. Going about 8-9 times for makeovers, you will end up getting your money’s worth.

Too Faced Sweet Peach Eye Shadow Pallet Review

 Too Faced Sweet Peach Eye Shadow Pallet Review

Too Faced Sweet Peach Eyeshadow Pallet

About Too Faced

Jerrod Blandino (CEO) and Jeremy Johnson (Chief Creative Officer) created Too Faced with the mission to have innovative products made from cutting edge ingredients to allow woman to create a feminine look and inspire confidence. Too Faced produced the world’s first glitter eye shadow, plumping gloss, and 24-hour crease-proof shadow primer. Most noteworthy, they are a multimillion dollar company that stretches worldwide. Today they are leading the industry with their cruelty-free cosmetics that all started with Jerrod working behind a cosmetics department store.

What I love about Too Faced Sweet Peach

First of all, I love that this Too Faced pallet smells! Furthermore, this Too Faced Sweet Peach pallet has a uniformed and authentic peachy smell to the whole pallet. In addition, if that was not enough, this pallet taste good as well! Sometimes I wet the tip of my eyeshadow brush if I didn’t think the eyeshadow primer executed the look I was going for which helps to act as a primer therefore, livening up the eyeshadows. Someone in Too Faced marketing must also wet the tip of their brushes as well! Finally, all of the colors in this pallet are great.
