I just can't get enough of the Sephora Favorites sets this year! This is the third one I picked up during the Sephora VIB sale. It had sold out during the Rouge sale time frame so I had figured I wouldn't be able to get it this year. Luckily it came back in stock for the VIB sale and my sister hasn't quite hit rouge yet so I was able to pick it up for 20% off, instead of the regular price of $90 CAD I paid $72 CAD plus tax. It appears to be sold out online again but it may come back instock or you can always check your local Sephora store. Even at $90 CAD it is a great deal.
The Sephora Favorites Superstars for 2015 has quite a few different products than the 2014 version, you can see it here (please forgive the photos! It was my first blog post!). The Sephora Favorites 2015 has the same amount of products as the 2014 (12) version but there are only 2 repeat products, Benefit They're Real mascara and Stila stay all day liquid liner. I am a fan of They're Real mascara so I was happy to see it again. I don't typically wear black eyeliner but my daughter does and I am sure she will be happy to have a new one.
Inside this years Favorites set you get -
Beauty Blender - This is the third one I have, but I am embarressed to say I have not tried this yet! I do use the mini though for concealer!
Make Up For Ever Step 1 Equalizer-Hydrating Primer - I have not tried out this primer before but I am looking forward to giving it a go if/when my skin gets dry! Travel size (5 mL).
Tarte The Sculpter Contouring Face Slenderizer in Park Ave Princess - I got this in the Bronze Bares All Set this past summer, but sadly haven't tried it out yet either! It does look a tad orange but I am going to try it out! Deluxe sample (0.06oz).
Tarte The Slenderizer Bamboo Contouring Brush - I LOVE brushes! This one though is tiney tiny. I am not sure how you are supposed to use this for contouring? Maybe for your nose? Mini sized.
Smashbox Cosmetics Photo Finish Primer Water - I had picked one of these up in the summer to try out, and I can't notice a difference when I use it? My daughter on the other hand loves it! Maybe I am using it wrong? I will continue to try it out, maybe use it on half my face and not on the other? Travel size (1 fl oz).
Nars Cosmetics Dual Intensity Eyeshadow in Himalia - This one was one of the reasons I wanted the set! I have been interested in the Dual Intensity shadows since they came out but just couldn't fathom $36 CAD for one shadow. Full size (0.05 oz).
Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Lounge - I am a fan of Urban Decays shadows so getting another single in a shade I don't already have is great! This is a beautiful reddy brown with green shift. Hopefully I will try it out! I am a bit of a chicken when it comes to color though! Full size (0.05 oz).
Touch In Sol Stretchex Stretch Lash Effect Mascara - I have not heard anything about this mascara so it will be interesting to see how good it is. I have no idea what its supposed to be like! Full size (0.24 oz).
Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner - Why does it always have to black eye liner?! I have used this liner in the past and it does last all day! It is in black so my daughter will most likely be getting this one. Fulls size (0.016 oz)
Lancôme Drama Liqui-Pencil Extreme Longwear Eyeliner in Noir Intense - Again with the black eyeliner! I have never tried this one so I may give it a go just to see if its a good one, if it is maybe I will pick one up in Brown. Full size (0.042 oz)
Clinique Chubby Stick Sculpting Highlight - I haven't seen/heard much about this one either. I have tried it out on the back of my hand and it is fairly intense though! I doubt I would put this on my face straight from the tube but maybe with a stippling brush it might not be to much. Full size (0.21 oz)
Benefit Cosmetics They're Real! Mascara - I already know and love this mascara so I am happy to have another one. This mascara has never smudged on me. Love it! Deluxe sample (0.1 oz)
Laura Mercier Matte Radiance Highlight 01 - This is another product I have been wanting to try out, but didn't want to get a full size incase I didn't like it. This looks to be a beautiful subtle hilight, more of a glow similar to the the Hourglass lightening powders. Deluxe sample (0.06 oz)
So you get quite a few full size products this year, 7 in total and 5 deluxe/travel size. The regular retail cost of only the full size products is $197 CAD if you bought them seperately! That's a huge savings if you are interested in any of the products.
As a side note, is it just me or does anyone else like the actual boxes the Sephora Favorites come in? I am definietly going to put them to use this Christmas!
I am definietly going to try out most of these products and will give you my thoughts on them once I have a chance to try them out for a bit. Is there any product in particular you are interested in seeing? Let me know.
