YSL Touche Eclat in Or Rose (Sephora exclusive for VIB rouge) REVIEW and swatches

During the VIB holiday sale at Sephora, I picked up the YSL Touche Eclat in Or Rose. Or Rose is only available to VIB Rouge shoppers (maybe VIB too?) at Sephora. I picked up one because I love Rose Gold and this was just right up my alley. I actually never tried the regular Touche Eclats despite their popularity because I don't really find myself reaching for highlighters. I have highlighters, but with my oily skin I prefer to keep things more matte on the surface. I couldn't resist with the rose gold though, gahhh.

$41 at Sephora

Or Rose comes in a rose gold metallic container. The inside is otherwise the same as the regular Touche Eclats. I love the look of this pen!
It has a pen cap on one end and a push button on the other end. When pushed, product comes out of the fibrous brush and you can either spot or blend into your skin.

Benefit Majorette Blush REVIEW and swatches

Sephora's VIB Rouge 2014 Holiday Soiree started a couple days ago and I got my hands on the Benefit Majorette blush among many other items.... This blush is unique because not only is it a cream to powder formula, it can also be worn alone naturally and under many of your other blushes. When worn under blushes, it changes the look of those blushes depending on how much of Majorette you apply. I personally haven't played too much with that idea yet, I wanted to just get to know this blush on its own. So far, I really like it. Keep reading for my take on this cutie.

Sephora, $28

Majorette is the only color of its kind. I don't know if Benefit will release other shades of this same product in the future, but so far I would say this is a fairly universal shade.
It is a light pinky orange matte shade and can be built up to your desired strength. It looks slightly pink on my skin tone, but gets more peachy when I apply more. Best of all, the build up does not cause flaking, clumping, or stickiness. I really dislike cream blushes because they end up with a tacky feeling, which causes my hair to stick to it or just feels icky on my face. The powder finish on this one really allows a natural feel on your cheeks!
