Sephora Rouge VIB Haul

Today I want to share with you what I order from Sephora during the Rouge VIB event. I have not tried all the products yet, so this is just an overview. More detailed reviews will be on my YouTube channel sometime in late May.

Sephora VIB Rouge is a customers loyalty program. If you spend over $1,000.00 in one year, you will be become a VIB Rouge customer. In addition, the VIB Rouge program comes with many benefits. One of these benefit is a 15% discount on all purchase, during the VIB Rouge event, which occurs twice a year. This is a great deal! Since I work in the industry I know all retailers’s promo calendar, so I usually will map out what I need to purchase from each store. For Sephora, I usually only purchased the exclusive brands.

Gucci Make Up review

IMG_4883IMG_4884

The most anticipated make up launch of 2014 Fall “GUCCI Beauty” is finally here. Currently available in the United States at www.Gucci.com , www.Saks.com and www.NeimanMarcus.com. In the forthcoming months, there are plans to launch Gucci Beauty make-up at Saks Fifth Ave in New York City, Neiman Marcus Las Vegas and selected Gucci boutiques. This is a full line launch from colors to basic skin care. All products are made in Italy, the home of Gucci fashion.

I ordered three (3) Gucci products from Neiman Marcus:

1. Gucci Eye Magnetic Color Shadow Quad – Cosmic Deco 010, $65
The eye shadow compact is magnetic and the Gucci in-pirnt on the color surface is deeply embossed and glamorous. After my color swatch, I could still see the in-print very clear in the make-up compact. This shows that they have pressed the make-up extra hard and deep. The surface texture of the eye shadow is like velvet and go on very easy. I didn’t use any primer before I swatched the colors.

2. Gucci Face Luxe Finishing Powder – Color 020, $55
The compact is just beautiful and once again, I love the Gucci logo. This compact is also magnetic. The finishing powder has a sheer finish, that goes on the skin smooth and soft. It is so sheer that in one application it didn’t cover much, but you could easily use this as a touch up makeup or for selfie ready. I love love the brush applicator, it is better than most of the luxury brands.

3. Luxurious Moisture Rich Lip Stick – Nude Satin 340, $39
After I tested the color on my arm and lip, I love the texture and feel, it’s not too rich or heavy. I can smell the scent of the lip stick, but you can not taste the lip stick on the lip.Once again, Gucci has made the packaging amazingly beautiful.

All in all, I really love the Gucci Eye Quad , Finishing Power and Lip Stick. I can’t wait to visit the Gucci make up counter and try other products. Please stay tune for a YouTube review in the near future.
