Weekly Review #22 | Sephora Favorites Superstars Set

11/15/15

How gorgeous does the Sephora Favorites Superstars set look? As a blogger and lover of trying all beauty related products, I was so intrigued to try all the different products in this kit. Most of them I haven't even tried, including the  beauty blender. To be more specific, I've only tried two: the "they're real" Benefit mascara and the Stila liquid eyeliner.


The Sephora Favorites Superstars set comes with two of almost everything, a bit like Noah's arc ;)
You get two primers (different forumlations), mascaras, highlighters, eye shadows, eyeliners, and one contour stick and one contour brush. 

Left to Right: Clinique highlighter and Laura Mercier highlighter

Left to Right: Tarte Contour Stick in Park Ave. Princess, Urban Decay Shadow in Lounge and Nars Dual-Intensity shadow in Himalia

Left to Right: Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Liner in Black , Lancome Drama Liquid-Pencil Longwear Eyeliner in Black, Tarte Contour Stick in Park Ave. Princess
Honestly, so many of these products are great. I already have the Stila Liquid liner and I use it all the time. You get a lot of great full size products, and even the smaller size products offer a lot of bang for their buck. Take the Laura Mercier highlighter for instance, smaller size but how often do you go through a highlighter? I mean if you end up loving it, you'll get the full size - but I have a few highlighters now and can't see myself going through it too quickly. The kit itself is a little pricey but you get a lot of high end products and it's definitely a deal. You also get a beauty blender, which is 20$ on it's own to begin with.

Even though I do love many of the products in here, and the set as a whole - there's a few I probably wouldn't purchase again. I'm not a fan of the Tarte Contour stick, the colour works well for me but it's not the perfect contour shade and it can be a little obvious if its not blended well. I do, however, enjoy the contour brush because it is small and fits the shape of my face great! I'm not a huge fan of the Benefit mascara - I didn't even use it I just gave it away. I'd also really prefer if the Make Up Forever Primer was a little bit bigger than the sample size you can get free with purchase. The small sample may give you 1.5x usage - which is hardly enough to make a decision. I'm also on the fence about the Clinique highlighter, as it's a pink-based highlighter with some smaller-milled glitter - but with enough blending and patting you can really get a nice highlight, although I wouldn't recommend this for daytime use unless you use it very lightly and have pink-toned skin.

Would I repurchase the Sephora Favorites Superstars set? I probably won't re-purchase as it's a holiday deal, but I definitely do not regret my purchase. If you've been wanting to try any of these products (even 2 or 3), and have some cash to spend, I'd definitely recommend it especially with the VIB sale ongoing.
