NARS loves V.I.B.s, and we love NARS <3
V.I.B. stands for Very Important Beauty Insider, which basically translate to "beauty enthusiasts who spend quite a bit of money at Sephora", or in my case, "shopaholic who spends WAY TOO MUCH money at Sephora". When they first introduced this V.I.B. system, it wasn't that great. For a year or two, there were only 15% off sale, which regular B.I. will get it too, just maybe a week later. But since last year, they have really been boosting it up. Giving out nice gifts like these to attract people to buy more, which is pretty evil lol.
Anyway, back to the topic, there are 3 NARS minis in this goodie bag: Laguna Bronzer, Orgasm Illuminator, and Pro-Prime Smudge proof Eyeshadow Base. I really wanted this gift bag because I have always wanted to try the NARS Laguna Bronzer, but never caved in and buy one because I have enough bronzers. But hey, this is free, sort-a, so I took the opportunity.
When they say these are mini, they're tiny! A regular Laguna Bronzer is probably 5 times larger. This mini is the same size as their single eyeshadow, which I guess isn't that bad.
They also came with a tiny "brochure" telling you what's inside and their ingredients.
I went to Sephora at around 3, and they still have quite a bit left, so maybe they will still be available tomorrow (but don't quote me). If you're a V.I.B. and wondering if you should make a purchase and get this bag, hopefully this will help you make up your mind.
Did you end up redeeming your gift? Or did you pass it up? Let me know =)
