No, I did not spend $1,000 at Sephora within the first 2 weeks of January. That would only happen if I won the lottery.
I hit the VIB Rouge tier in mid-December of last year (still, oops). My local Sephora had run out of welcome kits by then (a mini Marc Jacobs lipstick), so I was able to redeem the 2016 version instead.
This year’s VIB Rouge Welcome Kit features a mini NARS blush in Goulue–a cool-toned berry pink shade. Fun fact: goulue means “gluttonous” in French.
The 2016 VIB Rouge Welcome Kit includes:
- Explanation of VIB Rouge benefits
- Beauty Studio All-Access Pass
- “A Taste of the VIB Rouge Life” — a 45-minute makeover voucher for a friend
- NARS Blush in Goulue (0.14 oz)
Unlike the VIB welcome gift, there are no coupons for 10% off or free shipping–not that I need to spend any more money at Sephora, obviously.
I’ve been really into blushes lately and I love NARS, so I’m very happy with this little gift! I also expect it to last much longer than any mini lipstick would, especially considering that the full-sized NARS blush is only slightly larger at 0.16 oz.
Here’s the swatch:
What do you guys think of the blush? Do you have a favorite blush, or are you more of a bronzer person?
