This is what you get for 500 Sephora Beauty Insider points. According to my local Sephora (Tysons Corner) this "gem" is what you get when you save up all your beauty points and finally have 500 to cash in.
Yes ladies. This "all in one" palette of shadows, blushes, face powder lipsticks and glosses can be yours start on July 2nd for a mere 500 points from your Sephora Beauty Insider Beauty Points Bank. I am not aware if this is available on line. It seems to be in store only but perhaps it is also available on line since they have a specific date when this item will be available.
Now before you get too excited, which I know you ALL are, allow me to tell you that I was not able to swatch the palette. I was only able to get my husband Mr. Sith to take a covert picture of this while I was checking out. They only had this at the register and only one for us to view. I have no idea if the shadows and blushes are the same quality as the Sephora brand, which are pretty decent. But from first looks (and sorry for the bad picture) it doesn't look very exciting at all.
First of all, the blushes, except for one, are all very warm toned and the face powder is obviously for a medium-light toned individual and the Bronzer looks matte. The lipsticks/glosses in the palette are useless unless you are going to carry this around with you all the time. The brushes look substandard, but semi usable. The eyeshadows are a decent mix of cool toned and warm, but nothing jaw dropping or unique.
At first glance I do not believe this is is worth 500 points from my Sephora bank. Maybe if I have a chance to play with it...maybe...but even then, I don't think so. I'm not a fan of these "all in one" palettes. That's just me. There's nothing wrong with them. I just don't have a use for them.
Lastly, this palette reminds me of a makeup palette that was marketed in the early 1980's via a catalog. Buy 3 products and get this super deluxe palette free. Anyone remember those? It wasn't Mary Kay or Avon. But it was lame & the quality was terrible.
So. Will you be cashing in your points for this palette?
What other sort of perks for 500 Beauty Insider points would you like to have?
