Sephora as you all know is a Beauty Heaven for makeup junkies. Sephora treats it’s Beauty Insiders with great rewards and free samples and the perks just don’t stop at that as they cheer you up with a beauty gift on your birthday (How awesome is that?).
Last month, when I got the email from Sephora, reminding me to come into the store for my gift (or add the free Birthday gift to my online order), I got super happy to discover that it’s NARS!!! This year Sephora teamed up with NARS to create a limited edition Birthday Set.
Sephora usually sends out these mails to their Beauty Insiders at the beginning of their Birthday months. If you go to store, you don’t need to make any purchase to receive your Birthday Gift, However, if you can’t go to the store, then you have to add that from your account with online order as they don’t ship it without an online order.
Best part is that you can receive it anytime during your Birthday Month or with in two weeks before or after your birthday so you don’t need to head out specially. (P.S you will avail it only one time whether or not you make multiple online orders during that month. One per Year, It’s a Birthday Gift after all !!!)

Rikugien is a frosted medium rose pink from their Satin Lip Pencil range. It is lighter in pigmentation, so you’ll need to swipe it a few times to get the desired effect/color. Satin Lip pencil are very smooth rich and very creamey and lasts for about 3-4 hours. Named after a famous park in Tokyo, Japan- Rikugien is pretty shade for every day wear.
Cruella is beautiful deep scarlet red from their Velvet Matte Lip Pencil range. This range boost of being Lipstick and Lip Pencil combination and is Best of Beauty award winner by Allure.
