Unboxing — Make Up For Ever Sephora 500-Point Reward

The editor in me really hates that “Make Up For Ever” is not written as “Makeup Forever”. But I guess I have to deal with it because it was probably intentional and has a different meaning when written as four words versus two words.

Anywho, you don’t care about my editorial ramblings—let’s get down to business: I got this 500-point reward from Sephora near the end of August (yes, I’m still playing catch up). I was surprised that this whole box was 500 points total—usually the items in the little display cases at Sephora are 500 points apiece.

This box came with a matte lipstick, a mascara, a pink lipgloss, an eyeshadow, and a blue eyeliner. And do you see that packaging? To die for.

Here are some swatches (with no filter). From left to right: eyeliner, eyeshadow, lipstick, lipgloss.

Loves: the lipstick, mascara, and eye shadow

The lipstick is matte and stays on for a long time. I hardly had to touch it up after eating lunch. The shadow has a nice pigment and applies so smoothly!

Not for me: the eyeliner and lipgloss.

I’m not really one for colored eyeliner, and lipgloss has never been a fave of mine—especially when it’s pink. I will say, though, that when I tried to wash of the swatches, the eyeliner would NOT budge. If you’re looking for a durable, waterproof eyeliner, this is probably it.

Overall I’m very pleased with this reward—3/5 products isn’t bad!

Did any of you choose this reward? If so, what were your thoughts?
