Some of you may know that Sephora had their VIB even this past weekend, and since I am a VIB, I couldn't pass up the opportunity to get 20% off. So I swung by my Sephora on Friday after work and picked up some Christmas gifts and a little something for me as well. I decided to grab the Sephora In The Glow value kit. I have photographed all of the products as well as swatches. I have tried some of them out since Friday and there will be initial reactions for those.
The kit comes with 9 mini blush/brozner/highlighter products. First up is Benefit High Beam. I have been wanting to try this out for a long time and I am so excited that I finally have it. I have used this a few times and LOVE it so far. It gives the most beautiful luminescent glow to the skin when you put this on. I will definitely be using this a lot.
Next up is Lorac Perfectly Lit Oil-Free Luminizing Powder in Spotlight. This is a very pretty gold highlighting powder. I have not tried this one out yet, but it looked gorgeous when I swatched it.
The next highlighting powder is the Bare Minerals All Over Face Color in Pure Radiance. I haven't tried this one either, but comes off as a light shimmery champagne color on the swatch.

The next blush is the Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 Hour Blush in Splendor. I used this one today and I love it. It's a very nice pink color with some shimmer to it. It is such a pretty light pink color on the skin.
The next and last blush is the Stila Convertible Color in Peony. This is a really pretty rosey mauve cream blush. I have not tried this one out yet, but I am definitely looking forward to it. It has a very nice creamy texture.

Last but most certainly not least, is a mini NARS Bronzing Powder in Laguna. I have the NARS duo with Laguna and Orgasm, and I have used quite a bit of the bronzer and really like it. It has a bit of shimmer in it, but it doesn't really show up on the skin. It has a great velvety texture and goes on very smoothly. This is a really great color for paler skin tones.

So those are all of the items that come in the In The Glow value kit. I think it is such a great value and could be a really great gift for someone. I love that Sephora comes out with these kits so you are able to try out a bunch of different brands without spending a ton of money. I really look forward to trying all of these out and creating some great looks with them.
