My name is Anoushka and I am addicted to Sephora. There, I said it. Yes, I have a VIB card and yes it is a VIB Rouge and yes, I have no doubt that I will be spending $1000 per year to keep that Rouge status. Except now it’s getting to that point where I am running out of things to buy or I can’t decide between all of the things that I can’t live without. Thankfully, Sephora understand my needs and frequently release some fantastic Favourites boxes. The newest box, and one which I think is going to fly off the shelves is the Sephora Favourites Bronze Bares All Box. I had spotted it online and couldn’t find it in store until I asked the lovely ladies in Sephora Florida Mall, and they grabbed me one from the stock room.
The Sephora Favourites Bronze Bares All Box contains eight products from eight great brands, from sample sizes to full sized items. Each product in the box has been inspired by beachy bronzed nudes and neutrals, golden shimmers and matte contouring. I was so inspired by my box that I wore a lot of the products for my flight home on Saturday evening, turning myself into a shimmered, tanned hostie who was dreaming of my next beach trip.
The box is decorated in such a way that it will be a keeper and ideal to store all those mini samples in, in the hope of using them all up. I love how when the box is opened that the products look like they’re floating in crystal clear waters on some beautiful tropical island. So, what’s inside the box I hear you shout? Well, lets have a look shall we…
– Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed in Opal – Sample
– Bite Beauty High Pigment Pencil in Madeira – Sample
– Formula X Nail Color in Evocative – Sample
– Nars Cosmetics Lip Gloss in Supervixen – Full Size
– Sephora Collection Contour Eye Pencil 12 Hour Wear in #14 – Full Size
– Tarte The Sculptor Contouring Face Slenderizer in Park Ave Princess – Sample
– Too Faced Cosmetics Chocolate Soleil Bronzer – Sample
– Urban Decay Split Pan Eyeshadow in Half Baked/Twice Baked – Full Size
The box retails for $39 which at the current exchange rate is £25. Not only is it exceptionally cheap, but the full size NARS lip gloss is worth $26/£21. I’ve also been dying to try the Becca Shimmering Skin perfector, although I really do not need any more highlighters but I would be happy to own the full size of this.
The Bite Beauty Pencil was the only item in the box that I was unsure off as it is such a pale colour but I was pleasantly surprised when I tried it on. It’s a gorgeous peachy nude, that although very pale, it’s a very flattering colour.
The Formula X nail varnish is the 2nd colour to hit my collection and I can see this colour being used frequently. It’s a great shade for work and it reminds me of tans and holidays. The bottle is quite small but a full size bottle in Sephora is only a couple of dollars.
It was the NARS gloss that initially drew me to the box, as I mentioned before, because of its great price point. I have picked up SuperVixen many a time but I have always ended up coming home with a pink lip gloss instead. I find NARS glosses to be some of the best for pigmentation, and they are so much better now they don’t have that weird plastic scent.
Another full size product is the Sephora Eye Pencil in shade #14. It’s a dark espresso brown shade with gold flecks and an incredibly smooth and creamy formula. I have tried this pencil in black before now so I can’t wait to use this one.
Another product that I have been really excited about trying is the Tarte The Sculptor in Park Ave Princess. I’ve not tried many products from Tarte but I have been lusting over the shade Park Ave Princess for a while now. If The Sculptor works out for my skin tone then I can see the entire range of products being purchased!
The Too Faced Chocolate Soleil is already a firm favourite of my myself and my Mum, but I only have a pan within my Too Faced La Belle Carousel set. Once I’ve used that up, I will be investing in a full size. It’s a medium matte bronze plus the chocolate scent is just incredible.
Finally, the last full sized item is the Urban Decay Duo eyeshadow that contains Half Baked and Twice Baked. Two colours that I have been using for say the last 15 years now. If you have Naked One palette, you’ll be familiar with the golden bronze and dark brown with gold flecks that are so flattering on any skin tone.
The Sephora Favourites Bronze Bares All Box is still in stock on the Sephora website, and it does now offer international shipping however with customs and shipping charges, it may be worthwhile spending over £75 to qualify for the flat rate shipping, Not that I am enabling you of course, I’m just helping you out.
