February Sephora Box

This month’s box was a home run! I fell in love with all the products. Excited to share my thoughts on them with you 🙂

BELIF
Moisturizing Eye Bomb

Which skin type is it good for?
✔ Normal
✔ Oily
✔ Combination
✔ Dry
✔ Sensitive

What it is:
A lightweight, refreshing eye cream that smooths fine lines with a 26-hour burst of moisture, boosts elasticity, and increases the resilience of the skin for flawless makeup application.

My overall thoughts: Very moisturizing and an eye cream I will use daily! Y’all know I love eye creams though..

 

LAURA MERCIER
Caviar Stick Eye Colour 

COLOR: Rose Gold – rosy gold shimmer

What it is:
A long-lasting, creamy eyeshadow stick that can also line, highlight, and create smoky looks.

What it does:
This multitasking eyeshadow stick delivers both easy application and high-definition, long-lasting color. Long-wearing, transfer-proof, and crease-resistant, the color glides seamlessly onto lids and blends and layers beautifully with a rich pigment-payoff. It features a myriad of shades and finishes to deliver endless options for an effortlessly beautiful eyes that stand out both day and night.

My overall thoughts: Very pigmented and shiny; a little goes a long way! Love this for the inner corners of my eye and highlight under my brow.

 

 

NARS
Velvet Matte Lip Pencil

COLOR: Let’s Go Crazy – vivid pink

What it is:
A cult-favorite, matte lip pencil that instantly delivers the impact of a matte lipstick with the spontaneity of a pencil.

What it does:
The NARS Velvet Pencil ensures that lips are instantly saturated with rich, vivid pigments and a velvety matte finish. Its jumbo size provides the application of a lipstick with the convenience of an artist pencil, and the tapered end is perfect for lining, defining, and filling in lips. Its non-drying formula is enriched with vitamin E and emollients for a creamy texture, while a blend of unique silicones ensures long-lasting, seamless matte color for hours. Just pair it with another lip product for added dimension or as a tinted base. Whether it’s soft and neutral or bold and edgy, this lip pencil is ideal for making a lip statement.

My overall thoughts: Glides on your lives, great coverage, and last a long time! Highly recommend and will become part of the small collection of lip products I will use regularly 🙂

 

FARMACY
Green Clean Makeup Meltaway Cleansing Balm with Echinacea GreenEnvy™

Which skin type is it good for?
✔ Normal
✔ Oily
✔ Combination
✔ Dry
✔ Sensitive

What it is:
A nourishing cleansing balm that gently melts away makeup and impurities caused by pollution, leaving the skin hydrated and silky smooth.

My overall thoughts: This has a weird smell that sort of reminds me of Vicks, BUT it works amazing in removing makeup and leaving your skin super smooth. However, I think this might not be a good product for anyone with oily skin.

 

 

SEPHORA COLLECTION
Rouge Matte Lipstick

COLOR: M11 Rebel Chic

What it is:
An ultra-matte lipstick that provides long-lasting moisture and intense pigment.

What it does:
This ultra-matte lipstick delivers bold color, intense moisture, and incredible comfort. Enriched with shea butter and rich emollients, the formula moisturizes and soothes lips, while depositing super matte color and blurring lip imperfections. And unlike some matte lipsticks, this one never feels cakey or dry on your lips. Ever.

My overall thoughts: WOW. THIS IS A WINNER. Love love love this color, product, and it lasted all day, even when I was eating. I’m just so sad I have such a small stick. Maybe even use for my wedding day… I now want it in every color! It’s on sale at sephora right now for only $7 but a lot of colors are already sold out!

Hi, I'm the founder of The PhDream. I'm a second year doctoral student who wasn't satisfied with just sitting behind a desk and writing papers. While my research may have an indirect impact, I wanted to engage more directly with the community and provide a platform to discuss neglected and sensitive issues. Along with that, I try to stay sane in my program by stress baking, glamming up even when I'm down, and sharing my dad-joke captions on the gram -- if only that creativity could translate into my research... Anyways, I'm always looking for contributors, collaborations, and people to eat my zelicious creations, so don't hesitate to reach out or follow me @ZuniJilani :)
