A Festive Little Beauty Bargain!

While perusing the aisles of Sephora yesterday (one of my most favourite things to do, of course!) I came across this tiny little sparkling palette and instantly snapped it up. It's the 'Event Entry' palette from Sephora's own brand 'Sephora Collection'.

It's a mini palette that contains eight neutral/smokey tones of eyeshadow...
Although I've used very little of Sephora's own brand makeup in the past, I swatched this in store and was really impressed by the formulation and pigmentation of the shadows. The paler shades have a lighter pigmentation, but the dark shades have really good payoff and blend nicely.

I think this is a great little bargain, whether it's a Christmas treat for yourself, or a gift for a fellow beauty lover, it's an amazing deal at only $11 (Just under £7) There's a nice mix of matte and shimmery shades and the black, glittery packaging is gorgeous too.

I'll definitely be getting a lot of use out of this over Christmas time!

    1. HI Kerry, i think Sephora France website ships to the UK now. And you can use a translator through google so you can translate to English :-) but yes, would be far easier if they came to the UK :-(

  6. Fantastic pallet! I love the sparkly outer, does the glitter rub off? I would worry about it getting all over my draw. Their shipping isn't bad to the UK, I find myself ordering from there often, hope this is online! I could always get friends to send it over, I need a 'care' package soon ;)

  108. I'm relieved to know that there are actually some really nice items in Sephora that aren't budget-breaking! Usually walking through there, I'm lusting after so many products...and then I slowly move my hand away when I see the price tag. But $11 is not that bad for a good variety of neutral shadows! Thanks for sharing this!
