I’m a hoarder of Sephora points. Their 100 pt perks are often laughable, and even their 500 pt perks are often not worth it. But recently I came across two 500 pt perks that I felt were worthwhile to finally redeem my points for:
Urban Decay Urban Vices, and Josie Maran Josie’s Best and Brightest Argan Oil Essentials. I redeemed for the UD during the VIB 20% off sale, and the Josie Maran was during the VIB coupon sale.
The Urban Decay Urban Vices kit includes:
• Eyeshadow palette in Dope, Hoodoo, Derailed, and Smokeout (4 x 0.8g)
• 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Smokeout (0.8g)
• Eyeshadow Primer Potion (single-use pack)
It’s quite a lot of packaging to hold the little palette. The single-use Primer is located on the top of the palette sleeve (which I have to remember not to toss out!)
I’m happy that the liner included isn’t black but a nice deep brown. And how gorgeous is Derailed?
Josie Maran Josie’s Best and Brightest Argan Oil Essentials includes:
• Josie Maran 100% Pure Argan Oil (5ml)
• Josie Maran Pure Argan Milk Intensive Hydrating Treatment (5ml)
• Josie Maran Argan Infinity Lip And Cheek Creamy Oil in Everlasting Honey (5ml)
• Josie Maran Argan Enlightenment Illuminizing Veil (3.9g)
The highlighter compact mirror reads: “Shine the light you were born to shine..” 🙂 A bottle of Essie nail polish (in Pink-A-Boo) for scale:
I’ve used the UD eye shadows once and they were nice – although I did find the colours to fade a bit through the day (even over primer and MAC Paint Pot). The Josie Maran highlighter is really pretty but it may be too dark for some skin tones to act as a highlight – so far it’s my favourite item out of these 2 kits. I’ve had the Josie Maran 100% Pure Argan Oil before and it’s great – I haven’t tried the Argan Milk serum or lip & cheek oil yet but I’m excited to!
It was nice to get these little “gifts” for myself for free! Have you redeemed for any Sephora perks lately?
