New year means that Sephora has new birthday gifts! This is super exciting, and Sephora has always brought it when it comes to their complementary gifts for Beauty Insiders, through their loyalty program. This year you had the choice between a tarte package and a caudalie set. I've really recently gotten into tarte, so I was super excited to pick up the tarte option.
The package contained two Sephora exclusive shades, with a blush in the shade paaarty and a lip paint in the shade birthday suit.
I always love the attention to detail that tarte puts into their products, with this blush embossed with a cute pattern.
When I swatched it, the shade was a nice, natural, pink tone with no shimmer or glitter, a great everyday blush. I haven't gotten around to purchasing a full size blush from tarte, so I'm really excited to get to try it out, and I think I'll probably end up getting a full size next time I make my way to Sephora.
The lip paint is a nice pale, nude shade that will likely go with pretty much anything I'm wearing, and will complement my makeup nicely. I find the lip paints to be a little less drying than other liquid lips, but still not really moisturizing. It is a matte lip after all, and they are all on the drying side.
These gifts are only available during your birthday month in 2017, so make sure you don't forget to pick yours up!
