I just can’t control myself!! When it comes to these Sephora Favorites sets, I feel the urge to buy, to purchase, to acquire (place any verb you want); it evolved in such a great compulsion, I really think I have a disease!! This new one was especially a no brainer when I saw Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer & YSL Touche Éclat, so I grabbed two 😉

♥ The box contains:♥
Atelier Cologne in Orange Sanguine Cologne Absolue (Deluxe Sample)
If you like notes of Blood Orange, Bitter Orange, Jasmine, Geranium, Amber Woods, Tonka Beans and Sandalwood, you will, like myself, fall head over heels in love with this perfume and unfortunately for my wallet, I now want more!
Caudalie Beauty Elixir (Travel Size 1 oz)
I already own a full-size of this Beauty Elixir and I enjoy it a lot. First, I really like the fresh spa-like scent. I use it two ways: at night after I finish my double cleansing wash, I use it as my toner and in the morning right after I’ve applied my liquid foundation and cream contour/bronzing (before any powders)!
Formula X The Colors Nail Polish in Pyrotechnic (Deluxe Sample)
Formula X nail polishes are good and this one does not disappoint. The nice delicious cherry red color is very flattering and it will look great on my toe nails with summer just around the corner. I rarely wear red nail polishes on my hands!!!
Klorane Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk (Travel Size)
I’ve tried a lot of dry shampoos, but Klorane’s is the only one that doesn’t make my scalp itch like crazy! You should read the label and respect the suggested usage: it mentions to leave the product on for two minutes and then brush thoroughly until the powder is removed. I’m really pleased with this dry shampoo and the clean fresh scent that it leaves on my hair.
Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 20 in Nude (Travel Size)
This tinted moisturizer might just be the best I’ve ever tried, it even beats my cherish Nars Tinted Moisturizer. Laura Mercier’s product applies like a charm, does a fabulous job at moisturizing my skin, doesn’t cause any breakouts and gives the best summer sheer coverage. This product alone is a reason enough to justify buying two boxes!
Make Up For Ever Aqua XL Eye Pencil in M-10 (Deluxe Sample)
I don’t do black or winged eyeliners because I have hooded eyes. Anyway, as I have really light skin, I prefer brown. I mainly use my brown eyeliners to thigh line my upper waterline to bring some dimension to my eye makeup. My problem is that I’ve tried literally every liner on the market and not one stays put for a long period and is not transferring to my bottom waterline EXCEPT this one.
I have no word to express how I adore this product; after 8 hours, the color is still there: UNBELIEVABLE! On my next shopping trip, I will buy a brown one. The funny thing is that these pencils are so poorly rated on the web, I must be the exception that proves the rule… and that ratings are not always right for everyone!
Nars Cosmetics Lipstick in Jungle Red (Full-Size)
Finally, a sheer red that I will enjoy wearing! When I first saw this Nars lipstick in Jungle Red which is described on the website as a semi-matte bright red, I thought: “Oh no!, not another red lipstick”!! But this one being a very sheer version is absolutely beautiful on my lips. To sum it up, it is a sheer brick red shade with a beautiful formula, just perfect for fall!
Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat in No. 2 Luminous Ivory (Full-Size)
For years, I’ve been wanting to try this cult favorite but I always thought it was ridiculously expensive (50$) for the amount you get. I now wish that I’ve never put my hands on it: I’m hooked. I use it as a concealer and it’s magical! This wonder doesn’t creased, adds a subtle light to my under eye area and covers the little darkness/redness that I have under my eye!
You can obviously apply this wherever you need instant radiance but for me, at 0.01oz, I’ll try to be frugal and continue using it as a concealer.
♥ The amazing value: Remember I paid 33$CND !!!
The YSL Touche Eclat is 50$, the Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer travel format retails for 26$ , Nars Lipstick for 35$ and Caudalie Beauty Elixir travel format retails for 19$, a total value of 130$CND. These four products alone largely justify buying this set…
Note :The 4 remaining products are all deluxe sizes.
♥ This set really reflects the French theme: Red lips and nails, pale skin & black liner.
♥ This set is more geared towards fair/light to medium skin.
Nothing else …
I’m so happy to have bought not one of these but two at this price (wink,wink). At first glance, I thought it was a good deal but nothing more. Now, I find this set to be extraordinary. It satisfies and combines two different passions of mine: my frugal state of mine and deal searching, and my love for beautiful high-end products. I love every single item, even the red lipstick!!! I’m still giggling on this one … Thanks Sephora (wink,wink)
Thanks for stopping by my beautiful friends xxx
