Sephora Favorites: Sunkissed Glow

May 17, 2017

Stop the press! See the products in the photo below?….You get ALL of them, in that dazzling holographic makeup bag!

I had to get that out the way cos being a huge fan of Sephora Favorites packs, combinations like this Sunkissed Glow Set really gets my heart fluttering. Featuring cult favorites from all the “it” brands, this set is sure to get you summer ready and glowing in an instant…

Sephora Favorites Sunkissed Glow

Rightly named, the Sunkissed Glow pack features highlighters and bronzers, as well as eye and lip products. Majority of what’s included are tried and tested favorites of mine, which is another reason why I can confidently recommend it.

I have to start with the bag first! Generously sized, the makeup bag is rose gold on the bottom and it has the most stunning holographic effect on top. There’s a rainbow of colors that weave in and out depending on the lighting and the angle it’s held. I tried capturing some of the colors but you have to see it for yourself as it looks amazing in person.

There are 3 full size and 6 travel size items in the bag. And at $45, here’s a breakdown of why this pack is an amazing value for money:

Full size item #1:  Marc Jacobs eyeliner in RoCocoa – which is a shimmery chocolate brown color. Ironically, I almost bought this very pencil just couple of weeks ago (but resorted to purchasing other higher priority items instead). These pencils are $25 each.

Full size item #2: NARS Orgasm lipgloss – NARS have just recently re-launched their best selling color Orgasm in different product options so to get it in this pack – at full size, is double bonus. These glosses retail at $26 each.

Full size item #3: Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Half Baked – This is a super creamy, high pigment shimmer shadow which can also be used as a highlighter if you wish. It retails at $19 each.

As you can see, the combination of just these 3 full sized products alone (totalling $70), well justifies the $45 spent on the whole pack.

Remainder of the products are all travel size – which I appreciate cos most of them are my go-to, which I take with me when travelling anyway. They’re also a great way to discover new favorites if you haven’t tried them before.

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Bronzer in Luminous Bronze: The Ambient range of Hourglass powders are super finely milled and provide a “glow” on the skin rather than shimmer or sparkle. Though this bronzer is more suitable for light to medium skin tones, due to the glow component, it can also be used as a soft highlight on deeper skin tones.

Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Opal: If you’ve been following me for some time, you’ll also know that Becca Opal highlighter is one of my all time favorites. Suitable for all skin tones, this soft champagne highlighter provides a smooth subtle glow which can also be built up.

Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzer: Another one of my go-to products, this matte bronzer is perfect for warming up the skin for a soft natural look. It has a cooler undertone which is also perfect to contour with. Oh…and it smells like chocolate!

Milk Makeup Liquid Strobe in Beam: This was my first time trying a Milk Makeup liquid highlighter. Although I like the formula and pigmentation, I’m not a huge fan of the rollerball applicator. It took a while for the product to work into the tip and even then I found myself applying it to the back of my hand and working from there. Other than that, thumbs up.

Laura Mercier Radiance Primer: At the risk of sounding like a broken record, this is yet another one of my favorite products. Regardless of skin tone, this Radiance primer contains illuminating shimmers to give the skin a glowing luminous look. It can be worn on its own or under foundations for a healthy dewy finish.

Tarte Brazillian Plus Self Tanner: This is another product I just got to try thanks to the Sunkissed Glow pack. It’s a light gel formula which is a dark chocolate brown. It works almost like a stain to give the skin a beautiful tan.

Sephora Favorites Sunkissed Glow 

In summary, this is possibly one of the best packs that Sephora compiled together as part of their Favorites range. Whether you’ve been wanting to try different brands, or like me, you have your cult favorite items in there, this pack is a great value for money.

I know the stores are selling out pretty quickly but they’re still available on the Sephora Website. And below are some other newly launched favorites packs if you’re interested – cos a girl can never have enough products right :)

Hi! I was looking for reviews on this set, and I don’t know if it would work well on tan complexions (mine is Jennifer Lopez-ish) and I would like to know your thoughts. Thank you and much love!

Hi Jacqueline, majority of the items in this set will be suitable. All the highlighters are quite subtle so they blend really well for all skin types. The Marc Jacobs eyeliner, NARS Orgasm gloss, UD eyeshadow, Laura Mercier primer and the Tarte tanning gel are all universal. The only 2 items that are slightly on the lighter side are the Hourglass and Too Faced bronzers. They may take more product to build up on your skin tone; but if like me, you enjoy using products in multiple ways, they also look stunning as eyeshadow or blush. Hope that helps :)
