If you overloaded with primers, try using it to "seal" in your night cream as well. It supposedly makes the cream stay put so it sinks into your skin overnight.

 

To get the most bang for your buck from your night cream, celebrity makeup artist and beauty expert Mally Roncal suggests applying a bit of primer on top of your night cream. The primer will seal in your night cream, allowing it to really do its job, instead of just evaporating into the air or rubbing off on your pillowcase.

Got my ItKit #3 today! I wasn't missing anything. I tried the Laura Mercier Face Polish just now and LOVE it! WOW! Glad I got this ITKIT! 

 

I got my $15 off today too, but after being spoiled by the ITKIT promo the 14 samples and bag they are offering right now seem kind of meh... Do you think they will have a different grab bag before the $15 off expires?

It sets your makeup, removes shine like any powder would, but the finish is almost like a soft focus, airbrushed effect. Hard to describe, but my makeup (face) always looks much better and more finished after I apply it.

Btw, the Tarte Smooth Operator powder that came in Kit #3 is similar to the MUFE...so you may want to give it a try.

I love the LM Face Polish too...it's fab. I don't know if there will be any new bags on the site, but you can still grab another IT KIT...the are still available if you put in the code.

I don't rack up a lot of points with Sephora...but last year I held out as long as I could and was able to snag the 

Christian Dior charm bracelet with a deluxe sample of Dior Addict to life. 

It came in the prettiest round white Dior box, too!

 

I had to pick it up at a local Sephora b/c it "sold out" so fast online.

It's amazeballs as a setting powder! A little goes a long way and doesn't look cakey at all. I also tried the Clarins primer and ohy, it's giving my HG Smashbox primer a run.. I hope it's not too expensive because I'm absolutely in love!

How did you get it so cheap?  Isn't that Glitz kit $50 on it's own?

The Lorac Pro Palette I wanted is OOS scared.gif I got the code for the $15 BI GC yesterday but I have to wait until tomorrow anyway because I'm a Dec baby and I want my birthday gift!! Ugh I hope they restock it before the coupon expires, I'd be so mad otherwise. I really want to order online instead because I don't mind eating the cost of the $35 to get free ship because I want another kit #3... unless if they offer something amazing for Fan Friday today.

post #283 of 426

I am going for Number 1 because I've been wanting to try the Stroke of Light.  I am always unimpressed with the half-filled Sephora samples which are included in 3.  (Perhaps it's just me, but mine run out so quickly!) 

 

I think that I am going to purchase the Korres Goddess Beauty Collection and a Soap and Glory kit.  This MUST be my last Sephora purchase for the year!

A little goes a long way. You can always re-apply and add more if you need to.

post #285 of 426

as someone who has too many primer samples and isn't a fan of perfumes, i really hope they update their free samples list soon... right now they only have 4 non perfume samples and two of those are primers :(

 

also, has someone used both the tarte smooth operator powder as well as the MUFE powder, and do you have an opinion on the differences? thanks :)

Feel the same way about the Clarins primer...it is now officially my favorite primer. It's so smooth and creamy and really diffuses pores. It's twice the price of Smashbox...($32 vs $17 for 0.5) Maybe worth it to hoard a back up and order another Kit #3 :)

They are similar so if you have one, no need to rush out and buy the other. But overall I much prefer MUFE powder...the finish feels softer and finer.

could you post a link? i cant find it

post #293 of 426

nevermind i found the code

post #294 of 426

Update: I called Sephora why I received a $15.00 gift card instead of a $20 since I am a VIB. She had no clue so now I have to wait up to 3 business days for someone to get back to me. In my head I am like NOOO the mystery bag plus my items will be gone by then lol.

The Clarins primer is so nice! I used to use the porefessional, but this is so much smoother. I'm glad I grabbed a second it kit so now I have two of these bad boys- they should last a while biggrin.gif

I received my 2 orders that included itkit #3 and neither had any substitutions! smile.gif

 

Also, my underwraps mystery bag included:

 

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

Murad - Energizing pomegranate moisturizer spf 15 (0.03 fl oz)
Origins - Clear improvement (0.24 fl oz)
Sephora - Foundation samples x 2
Too Faced - Chocolate Soleil matte bronzing powder (2.5g/0.08oz)
Versace - Bright crystal (0.17 fl oz).  It's a really adorable mini-version of the perfume.
 
All in all, not bad with 3 deluxe samples.   But I think the itkit is a better option.

That's a great tip!  I'm also overloaded with primers, so I'm definitely going to try this. smile.gif

I haven't tried the Tarte clay powder, but definitely agree with the above comments on the Clarins and MuFe powder... That Clarins balm is going to go on my HG list, for sure! It was great as a primer and my foundation/concealer looked great after a crazy 12 hr shift at work!
post #299 of 426

I got the it kit in #2 (Classic) and seriously was SO impressed when it came. The samples were all pretty big and useable! Except the perfumes which I don't reallly use but still :)

Mine was just the lipstick for 100 points. It was perfect because I've also always wanted to try it but the price scared me away so far, and I LOVE anything mini.
