I blogged last week about Sephora’s VIB Rouge Reception and the VIBParty bag. This week I stopped by my local Sephora Inside JC Penney store and got a different version of the bag. In my opinion, the bag from SiJCP is much better, and worth grabbing if you have a SiJCP nearby. This version contained deluxe samples of Philosophy’s Loveswept fragrance, First Aid Beauty’s Face Cleanser, Buxom’s Lash Mascara, BareMinerals’ Marvelous Moxie Lipstick in Speak Your Mind, Formula X’s Nail Color in Harmonics, Benefit’s Stay Flawless Primer, Algenist’s Multi-Perfecting Skin Corrector Concentrate, and Sephora’s Instant Moisturizer. The samples are generous and I’m more excited about this bag than the freestanding Sephora one. The only overlap in products was the Buxom mascara. I’m most excited about the lipstick, nail polish, and primer, but the other products are also great and are good sizes for travel.
BareMinerals’ Marvelous Moxie Lipstick in Speak Your Mind is described as a bubblegum pink, but I don’t think it’s anything close to that. To me, this is a pinky-nude, or a MLBB color. It does lean pink, but it is definitely not bubblegum.
See what I mean? That is not a bubblegum pink, it’s more of a neutral nude-pink. This is a color that would be great for an understated makeup look, or would be a nice everyday color. The formula is creamy and opaque, with a satin finish. This is a good sample size. You can buy the full size here.
Harmonics is part of Formula X’s New Classics line. It’s described as a deep lilac, and I’d say that’s exactly what it is. It’s a nice purple cream that’s not too dark, but not too pastel either. This mini is a decent size and will last awhile, I was happy to get it in my VIBParty bag.
Here is Harmonics next to a full-size Formula X polish. It may look small, but it’s a little over a third of the size of a full size. It’s quite a bit bigger than OPI minis and the same size as Essie minis. Full size is here.
Have you picked up any of the VIBParty bags? What did you get in yours?
