BEAUTYBLENDER beautyblender® micro.mini

Sephora Play August 2017

What it is:
A duo of mini sponge applicators that double in size once wet—making them easy to contour, highlight, and precisely apply makeup onto the smallest parts of the face.

What it does:
This makeup blender lets you perfect makeup application in the inner eye corners, brow bones, sides of nose, cheeks, and more. Designed with exclusive beautyblender® material and one fourth the size of the original sponge, these non-disposable micro.mini sponges are the perfect tool for concealing small areas. Simply wet them so that they increase in size so that you can highlight and contour your face and ensure less makeup waste.

What else you need to know:
This product is an Allure Best of Beauty winner. These two micro.mini sponges feature an open cell structure that fills with a small amounts of water when wet. This allows the sponge to be “full” so that the product sits on top of the sponge rather than being absorbed, allowing you to use less product every time. When wet, beautyblender doubles in size and becomes even softer, returning to its original size once it air dries.

Suggested Usage:
-Wet beautyblender® with water.
-Squeeze out the excess liquid, using a towel if available.
-Bounce primer, foundation, powder, cream blush, or any other complexion product across the face for flawless results.

Clinique High Impact Mascara

Sephora Play August 2017

What it is:
A richly-pigmented, volumizing mascara that instantly lengthens and defines each and every lash.

Sephora Play August 2017

What it does:
Get instant lash drama with High Impact™ Mascara. Pump up the volume and length of your lashes for a look that appears lusher, plusher, and bolder. This mascara coats your lashes in pure, deep color for an irresistible lash look.

Suggested Usage:
-Start at the base of lashes and wiggle brush up to the tip of lashes.
-Repeat to build.
-To apply to lower lashes, hold wand vertically.
-Do not pump brush in container. This adds air that can dry out the mascara.
-To prevent clumping, let mascara dry in between coats.

Hourglass Vanish™ Seamless Finish Foundation Stick

The long-wearing, waterproof formula provides 12-hour coverage, and the innovative formula adjusts to your body temperature to effortlessly blend into the skin.

Final Thoughts

This was a great month for Sephora Play.  I have used the Alterna Volume Mist before and own the full size and this is a great sample size!!!  Who doesn’t love BeautyBlender?  The mini is a bit gimmicky if you asked me, but I will find a use for it.  Mascara and Clinique, yes please!  The foundation stick, is a nice sample, though I am not sure it is for me…but I will give it a try.  Finally, Korres is a great brand, and I am excited to try the serum!

Did you get these same products this month?
