It has been two years since I last purchased a Holiday Sephora Favorites bundle and man, I must have missed out last year because this year is INCREDIBLE. They just keep getting better and better.

For $75, I got ALL of the items listed on the front of the box:

Yeah. Crazy.

  • Laura Mercier loose translucent setting powder w/ a puff
  • FOREO Luna Play
  • nude Beautyblender
  • Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed in 'Moonstone'
  • Urban Decay Vice lipstick in '714'
  • Tarte 4-in-1 Marine Boosting spray
  • The Estee Edit Kohl Shadowstick in 'Black Viper'
  • Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in 'Trooper'
  • NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in 'Custard'
  • Cover FX Enhance Click in 'Bubbly'
  • Glamglow Supermud
  • Benefit Ka-Brow! in '3'
Of all these items, the ones that I am the most excited about are the Laura Mercier loose setting powder and the Becca Shimmering Skin perfector. The loose setting powder because I was finally able to try out baking and while it was not the best attempt, it was still something that I’ve never done and got to play with. Additionally, I’m very excited to try out the FOREO Luna Play. I had never heard of the brand before purchasing this but I’m into vibrating facial cleansers because they don’t pull and tear at your skin like rotating ones.

The NARS concealer in ‘Custard’ is unfortunately too dark for my skin but luckily, the Benefit Ka-Brow! is the PERFECT shade for me. I really like the dry formula because it offers a different way for me to fill in parts of my brows. I’m used to my silky eyeshadows and felt tip pens.

The Tarte Marine spray can be used as a primer, a setting spray or a refreshing spritz. It can be sprayed directly on a face brush to elongate the staying power of the product, too. It’s a very cool and versatile product.

I also really like the color of Urban Decay’s ‘714’ Vice lipstick but it’s supposed to be a matte finish and when I wore it, the color never seemed to mattify. Which is fine. I’m not a part of the matte-or-go-home club. The color is pretty enough whatever the finish is.

The only negative that I experienced was with the GlamGlow mask. I have used this exact one in the past (last 2013 through mid-2014) and I loved it. Used the entire jar. I opened up this mini tube last night to apply the mask to my T-zone and chin, washed off once it was dried after about 10 minutes and I ended up with a face that would scare you. It looked like I was severely, severely sunburnt. Here's a photo of my face. It makes sense because my face started to severely tingle and burn after about 4 minutes of wearing the mask. Very weird. This never used to happen. So I have concluded that the formula must have changed over the past couple of years although I cannot confirm since I don't know what the formula consisted of in the past. 

I really just can't get over what a great deal this group of products is. I would without a doubt go get this guy online or in-store ASAP. Especially if you know that NARS 'Custard' is your shade! 

Alright, that is it for today. Thank you so much for reading!
