Starting yesterday at Sephora stores and on the Sephora website, Nars is offering Sephora VIB's a special Valentine's Day set of minis. The mini set consists of a bronzing powder in Laguna (.08 oz), smudge proof eyeshadow base (.09 oz), and a liquid illuminator in Orgasm or Copacabana (0.29 oz). Be sure to specify which illuminator that you want otherwise you may not get the one that you were expecting. If ordering online use code: VIBNARS and in store use the e-mailed coupon similar to the one pictured below. Additionally, the only requirement is $35 purchase of products, which considering all the amazing stuff that is at Sephora shouldn't be too hard.

Anyway, I went last night to get my Nars gift bag because the Sephora that I shop at always runs out of these types of promotional items rather quickly. Also, I knew that spending the required $35 wasn't going to be that difficult either seeing as how I had several items that I wanted to get. The only difficult thing about this whole shopping trip was trying to decide on what to purchase. LOL

As I was debating on what to purchase I remembered that I had run out of my YSL Touche Éclat Radiant Touch highlighter so I decided to repurchase it. I've heard about and I've tried, the Milani HD advanced concealer. It is the perfect dupe and a cheaper alternative to the YSL product. The Milani product currently retails for approx. $7 at drugstores whereas, the YSL Touche Eclat retails for $40 at Sephora and most major department stores.

For me, I have extremely dry skin underneath the eyes and the Milani HD concealer is definitely no substitute for the YSL product. When I wore the Milani brand I experienced flakes and scale-y patches around the eye area. It also didn't sink into the skin as well as the YSL. The YSL Touche Eclat leaves my skin with a nice healthy and radiant glow that seems to revitalize my appearance. It is truly a miracle worker in a skinny metal tube. I just LOVE it!

This cute little Nars bag pictured above contained the Nars mini set and then right next to it is the YSL Touche Eclat that I purchased.

The above are pictures of the Nars mini products that I received in the Nars bag after I made my $35 or more purchase at Sephora. I have the Nars Laguna bronzer in a bigger compact and think it is a wonderful bronzer for the upcoming Summer months. It really adds definition to my face. Now, I haven't ever used the Copacabana illuminator so I'm excited to give it a try. The Nars eyeshadow base I use everyday as my Go-To eye primer and it is wonderful. I am willing to go so far as to say it is my "HG" - Holy Grail eye primer because its that good, no its that GREAT! This little tube of eye base I will probably keep for when I have to travel as its the perfect size for such an occasion.
