Sephora Favorites: In The Glow

Christmas is coming soon and Sephora has released several sets with their "favorites" - which make a great gift to others or to yourself. The great things about these sets, is that you receive a bunch of samples to test out instead of committing to a full-size product you've never used before.

I love highlighters / luminizers. Personally, I think it gives that final touch that makes you look more radiant, awake and glowing, so this was a set I was very interested in. The only thing that bugs me is that contrary to other Sephora sets, this one does not contain a full-size product.

So are you interested in this Sephora set? Keep reading!




For $45 US ($111 US Value) / $54 CAN ($133 CAN Value), you receive 9 samples which include:

  1. TOO FACED Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzing Powder: a soft brown color with a lovely chocolate scent (YUM!)
  2. TARTE Natural Cheek Stain in Flush: the color reminds me of Benefit's Benefint, but more natural. It smells like berries, but the smell doesn't linger on your face. It gives a dewy finish that I absolutely love.
  3. STILA Convertible Color in Peony: a dark rose cheek/lip stain.
  4. TARTE Amazonian Clay 12 Hour Blush in Splendor: A sparkly rosy color, not glittery (though it make look as so when you first see it in the pan) - it looks flattering on the cheeks, but I would personally use it in the evening).
  5. BENEFIT High Beam: I'm bugged they included this - Benefit always includes it in their set. But if you've never tried High Beam before, this is your chance. It's a sheer pink liquid highlighter.
  6. BARE ESSENTUALS BareMinerals All-Over Face Color in Pure Radiance: a golden-peach highlighter.
  7. LORAC Perfectly Lit Oil-Free Luminizing Powder in Spotlight: a warm beige luminizer. My favorite highlighter as of now. I had never tried it until I received this kit, and it is absolutely gorgeous. No glitter, no sparkle, just a subtle, natural glow. Love.
  8. LAURA MERCIER Shimmer Block in Golden Mosaic: a baked-formula bronzer/luminizer. Can also be used as eyeshadows!
  9. NARS Bronzing Powder in Laguna: a brown powder that contains subtle golden shimmer.

Overall, a great set. It was great Sephora included different forms of luminizers / bronzers (liquid, powder, stains, etc). Perfect for those who need some glow to their face!

    1. Thanks Dear! It is a lovely set. I hope you can get it soon. If you know anyone travelling to the states, have them get it for you?

      And thank you for your kind words and for your offer to help me out. I didn't even know I didn't have a "follow me" button! How do I add that?!
      Thanks for letting me know.
