General, Make-up

I have my eye on some Make-up Sets

You may or may not know, I’m heading to Chicago next month. Now, shopping will be minimal but I am planning some treats from Sephora.

Whilst in Sephora in The Water Tower last Christmas I was overwhelmed by the sampler and gift sets available. I settled on a fragrance sampler but stayed away from the make-up kits. This was mainly because my make-up list was the length of my arm. This year, there is nothing I need so I’ll be trying a sampler set or two.

Here are a few that I’m considering. Maybe you could help me decide!

Sephora Beauty in a Box – Nars Junkie $69 ($121 value)

  • Essential Eye Palette: Night Star, Galapagos, Nepal, Ondine, Thunderball, Unconditional Love
  • Ophelia Lip Gloss
  • Mini Multiple in Orgasm
  • Mini Bronzer in Laguna

  • Tarina Tarantone Sparklicity Pure

  • Bare Mineral Minerla Veil in Illuminating

    I too have been eyeing up the NARS and Too Faced sets on Sephora’s site, hoping to pick them up in NYC later this month, can’t wait!

  • V

    Just get them all, Christmas is not the time do minimal makeup shopping :PP

  • harumichan

    <3 nars…

    • Amy

      Me too! Life long love haha

  • Karen

    And just think, the more you get in sephora, the more points you get on your card and the more freebies you can get heeh win win!

    • Amy

      That is such a good point Karen – I like how you think :)

  • Isha

    I have the NARS set and I LOVE it. Best makeup I ever purchased from sephora. My favourite out of that set is the Essential eye pallet. Amazing colours and pigmentation!

    • Amy

      Ooooh now I definitely must have it!

  • Meredith

    Second that thought on the Sephora brand…don’t waste ur money…

    • Amy

      Thanks for the advice Meredith!

  • pimpernell

    I would defenately NOT buy the Sephora brand as I don’t like it at all! However, I would defenately buy both the Nars and Too Faced Palettes :-)

    • Amy

      Thanks so much for the advice on the sephora brand stuff

  • Nerina

    Skip the Sephora brand products. The Sephora Beauty in a Box: Sparkle til Dawn.. I am often disappointed with the quality of their own brand.

    The NARS set and the Sephora Favourites Glitz & Glam (non sephora brand products) look amazing tho!

    • Amy

      Your right – will get those 2!

  • Karen

    I’m thinking about getting my friend to buy me the Glitz and Glam one in NY this month, looks gorge. The NARS set looks lovely too, have you checked out the Lash Stash’s from Sephora too? Great way to try 10 mascaras for cheap hehe

    • Amy

      I did ponder on that lash stash all right, don’t tempt me with more haha

  • Aoife Oneill

    get all four! treat yourself :)

    • Amy

      You’re bad for my wallet Aoife :)

  • Rachael

    The Nars junkie or the Too Faced one’s look amazing :)

    • Amy


  • Lex

    I’ve been wanting the NARS and Too Faced kits, so my vote is for those :). I’m sure all of them are fabulous, though! :)

    • Amy

      I haven’t had much experience with too faced but the box of goodies looks great!

  • Melanie

    Id get the nars and the too faced.

    • Amy

      Thanks Melanie!

  • robyn

    Hi Amy! I’ve been eyeing these as well and my favorites are:

    the Nars one-i could die over that palette and the mini laguna is perfect for travelling and using as an eyeshadow :) i also love the lipgloss-but its hard for me to not love a lipgloss :)

    the Sephora favorites is my next favorite. that is alot of products!

    happy choosing!

    • Amy

      Your getting me all excited Eeeeeek! :)

  • Jean

    Ohhhhhhh :o Pretty!
    I’d get the Nars one and the Two Faced one because they have several products I want to try!
    I’ve never seen Nars in Ireland is it avalible here?

    • Amy

      I’m actually not sure – I will check. I always buy nars abroad or online. I think it used to be available in blue eru, which has gone out of business. I will check!

  • saskia

    • Amy
