Quick Sephora Haul And First Impressions

2 years ago

I decided to quickly pop in to a Sephora shop since I wanted to pick up a concealer brush. Mainly because I think a brush would give a more accurate in covering my undereye circles than using just my finger.

First Impressions:

-Sephora PRO Precision Concealer 45 Brush ($26 CAD): There were not many concealer brushes to choose from but while reading reviews on my phone while shopping, I came across this brush that had pretty decent reviews about it. It says that this brush would `smoothly applies and blends concealer to the eyes, face and blemishes` which is what I was looking for. The tester brush in stores felt really soft and think it would be delicate enough on my skin. Compared to other concealer brushes, I find the hairs to be a bit longer and fluffier. It kind of looks like a blending brush but it`s a bit flatter. I like how the tip is protected by a plastic cover so the bristles do not get damaged. It would be pretty useful for travelling or taking it on the go with you.

-Carven Le Parfum Sample (Free): I was quite surprised that they gave me a sample since it has been ages since a sales associate in stores has given me a sample with my purchases. I decided to search up the notes for this since I have never smelt it before and wanted to know beforehand what I might expect. The notes include: Neroli, Mandarin Blossom, White Hyacinth, Jasmine, Ylang Ylang, Sweet Pea, White Sandalwood, Precious Wood Harmony. There are quite a bit of flowers in the notes and am assuming it is a floral perfume. I decided to give it a try by spraying a spritz on my wrist to see how it smells and I am surprised that it smell not bad. I was expecting it to smell old lady like. From what I smell, I would classify this as a fresh floral with a hint of sweetness that is not too strong. I would also say that this perfume is more on the mature side. Personally, I would use this as a night perfume which is probably the opposite to what most people would do. Would I buy this? Probably not for a couple years since I find it a bit too mature for my liking.

-Sephora Birthday Gift (Free): I am sure that most of you know that if you sign up as a Beauty Insider, you are able to receive free birthday gifts each year. The sales associate decided to give me the gift right there and then so I did not have to come back on my birthday, which is pretty nice. I am probably one of the last people to have gotten this and for those who have not heard of this gift before, it is a small sample of Make Up Forever`s lipstick and mascara.

Overall I am excited to try my first concealer brush and see if it works up to it`s reviews! Hopefully it will make my concealer more smooth looking.
