Sephora Birthday Gift 2014 | Make Up For Ever Smoky Extravagant Mascara & Rouge Artist Natural Lipstick
This year's free birthday gift from Sephora's Beauty Insiders program is from Makeup Forever. The gift includes deluxe sizes of the Smoky Extravagant Mascara and the Rouge Artist Natural Lipstick in N9.
The Makeup Forever Smoky Extravagant Mascara has a large natural bristle wand in a cone shape. The wand of this mascara is huge! It is almost the exact size of my eye, which makes applying the mascara quite difficult. The tip of the wand also tends to clump the lashes together, so I would suggest wiping off the tip each time before application. As for the results, the mascara makes my lashes look okay. It doesn't do anything crazy for length or volume, and it frequently leaves my lashes stuck together. The photos show two coats of the mascara on my top and bottom lashes.
The Make Up Forever Rouge Artist Natural Lipstick in N9 is a darker, neutral red color with a creme finish. This lipstick doesn't give off an opaque color, which is fine with me given the nature of the lipstick's color.
