Sephora: Awesome Beauty Insider 500 Point Perk Benefit Benefaves

Every time I am at Sephora I scope out what the Beauty Insider freebie gift is, and it's rarely something that I would actually redeem for. Then the other day, while looking up products on Sephora online I notice this awesome Benefit 500 point perk and almost placed an online order just to get it. Then I was at Sherway Gardens (Toronto) tonight shopping and their Sephora had it. So I picked up some things, or so my cousin bought me some Christmas presents and I got this pretty thing. This is the first time I've redeemed my points ever, so it's a big deal for me.

It comes with a full sized Coralista blush (I know full size!), and a 4g size Badgal lash mascara. I have several Benefit boxed blushes and they are pretty good, but expensive and I've always wanted this one, so I am so happy to have it. The blush retails for $36CAD ($28 US) and the mini BadGal I think I saw it for $8 CAD in the store today. So that's not a bad value there.

Coralista is a peachy blush, it has a coral pink sheen which is supposed to look great on the cheeks. It's definitely a sheen and not glittery overload, which I appreciate.

And here is the brush on the Benefit Badgal Lash, pretty average looking I think, it's a big brush for sure. I took it out of the tube for the photo-op and it's going back sealed and in the box until I go through my mountain of opened mascaras.

Anyway, I loved Sephora's little Christmas present to those who spend lots of money in their stores. This was a nice start to Christmas for me. Definitely check out your local Sephora if you are interested in this one, they change around the perks every now and then.

What's the best points perks you've redeemed for at Sephora?

Nice! I'd wanted Coralista for the longest time, however now i'm more keen to get Bella Bamba.

Awesome! But I already own Coralista, I wish they'd have more selections for the 500 points.

I just ordered this the other night! It's definitely an amazing deal (even though I already have both) so I'm just going to give it as a gift. I always save my points too. I cringe when people redeem their points for things they don't even really want (mostly the 100 point samples) because they don't know about the awesome 500 pt gifts! Definitely worth it to save.

that's a very nice gift. Coralista reminds me of beautymaker's pupu blush in orange. :)

Wow, that is a really good gift for 500 points! I think their point perks are getting better and better :) Too bad I always get tempted by the small 100 point samples so I still have awhile to go before I get up to 500 points :(

I noticed it online too! I've been toying with the idea of making an online purchase, because I haven't seen it here yet. I'm going to the Scarborough Town Centre though, so I'll have to see if they have it today! :) That's one of the best 500 point perks I've seen in a long time!

What a great deal! I never shopped there often enough to get any gifts. Anyway, gotta love coralista!

Katie said... Best Blogger Tips

Nice! I've been wanting Coralista for a while now!

Stop by my blog if you get a chance :)

wow what an amazing gift. they never have stuff like that when i go. i like the idea of mini mascaras, it takes forever for me to go through a big tube (except fiberwig b/c i wear that one the most) so to try out different brands the small tube is more hygienic.
