Hello, hello – welcome to / welcome back to A Brash Attitude. April is my birthday month, so I got my annual Beauty Insider gift. There was a choice of four different gifts, and I chose the Ilia set, as this was a brand that I’d never tried before. [info in italics taken from the Sephora Canada website]
Ilia Birthday Gift Set featuring Fullest Volumizing Mascara mini, Balmy Gloss Tinted Lip Oil in Shade Only You mini, and Lip Wrap Overnight Treatment sample.
– Fullest Volumizing Mascara – A clean, volumizing mascara that wraps each lash in weightless, buildable volume without flaking, smudging, or irritating even the most sensitive eyes.
When I first applied the mascara, it made my lashes look long, and dark, but didn’t give much volume as I’d hoped, even with two coats. It was smudge proof and water resistant, but sadly does not hold a curl for me. I’d score this mascara a 5 out 7 – taking off points for volume and curl holding.
– Balmy Gloss Tinted Lip Oil in Shade Only You – A cushiony, tinted lip oil in a universal neutral nude shade that’s packed with plumping hyaluronic acid and major moisturizing properties to leave lips soft, smooth, and anything but sticky.
The Balmy Gloss Tinted Lip Oil is really nice. It is hydrating and not at all sticky. The shade is a really nice nude. I really like it a lot.
– Lip Wrap Overnight Treatment – An overnight lip treatment with clean ingredients that helps reveal your smoothest, softest lips.
The Lip Wrap sample is so tiny! Not enough to review, but enough for a first impression. It reminds me of the Bite Beauty Lip Mask. I think I’d like to buy myself a full size!
Have you tried any of these from Ilia? Which Sephora Beauty Insiders gift did you chose this year?
