This years Beauty Insider Birthday Gift from Sephora

No matter how pint-sized they are, (in fact the smaller, the cuter!) it is always fun to pick up my Beauty Insider birthday gift from Sephora each year.  This year when I picked it up in store, they offered a choice between the Fresh Sugar duo from last year, or the Benefit They’re Real/Watt’s Up! fun-size duo.  Benefit They’re Real has been one of my favorite mascaras in the past and I have never tried Watt’s Up! so I’m excited to have both!

These little minis are perfect for travel.

They’re Real: 3.0 g/ 0.1 oz.  I’m excited to have a fresh mini version of They’re Real to keep in my handbag for lash emergencies!

Benefit Watt's Up Sephora Beauty Insider Birthday Gift

Watt’s Up! (25 g/0.08 oz.) is a champagne highlighter with a cream to powder finish.

The swatch is so creamy and smooth, plus easy to blend.

I think the birthday gift this year is so fun and practical!  I am honestly pleased with both items, as I have never tried one of Benefit’s highlighting products.  They’re Real mascara is going to be a lifesaver for me for those times I walk out the door and have forgotten to put mascara on!  Yikes!     Yes, it has happened ladies, just last week in fact!  (Feel free to laugh at me now, lol!)  I am so glad I will have something to carry with me in those scatter-brained moments.

    1. Hooray for spring birthdays! Happy Birthday this month! 🙂 I think you will definitely like this one. 🙂

  1. I was happy with this year’s option as well, I hadn’t used either and I’m always interested in a new highlighter. Benefit can be a little pricey for things like that though so I doubt I would have ever bought it, and it’ll be quite a surprise if I ever use up even the little sample size of Watt’s Up. 🙂

    1. Yes I agree – it all too easy to have a lot of highlighters that will probably never be used anyway. This one is so pretty isn’t it! 🙂 I love that I now have a cream to powder one which is new to me!
