I like how they went from asking me to flat-out stop taking pictures (here and here) to now offering to hold up the products for me while I take the picture LOL I spotted some of the New Collections (new to Kuwait, rather) and a new Hair Care Brand called Briogeo, some fun Asian Skincare and more than a few absolutely stunning Palettes! With that being said, now that I’m getting older, I find myself… dare I say it… kinda’ losing interest in makeup (I’m 33). Not a lot seems to wow me anymore. I’ve also noticed the same thing happening with my choice of fragrance (I’m starting to turn away from all things candy and find a lot of my once-beloved gourmands straight up annoying now). If I ever fall out of love with videogames though, I’d be completely devastated (might as well not live anymore, after that! lawl). Thankfully, that hasn’t happened… yet.
Since my birthday had just gone by (Sagittarius, baby!) and I was at the Avenues anyway (picking up a birthday gift for my sister-in-law), I figured I might as well stop by Sephora and pick up my free “Birthday Gift” (Sephora Loyalty Program).
If you skim through my blog, you’ll know that I’ve already spent thousands on makeup and makeup-related items (some people go crazy for shoes or clothes or handbags, others, on cars or electronics, others still on food, while others spend all their money on traveling during their spare time, and so on, but for me I skimp out on all the other stuff – including gas for my car lawl – to spend my money on makeup-y bits) so it’s not like I needed a “free gift”. In fact, for my birthday, I received a steady stream of birthday gifts that started trickling in weeks before my actual birthday (including a God-forsaken Alexa already connected to our at-home wifi, ready to listen in on me and report back to the Illuminati). Still, I was mighty curious and what with the allure of a possible Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment (a girl can hope) and the chance to blog about the whole thing to boot (as promised here), I made my way to Sephora. I honestly didn’t know what to expect, especially not after the whole 200-point-perk business (full deets here). The lady behind the cash register took my phone off me, pulled up the Sephora app, messed with it a little before handing me the Marc Jacobs Mini Kit (shown above). The Marc Jacobs Mini Kit contained a teeny-tiny lipstick and a mini eyeliner (or highliner as they call it, over at Marc Jacobs).
