Sephora Favorites In the Glow set


Went to Sephora to pick up a few things. One of them was the Sephora Favorite In the Glow Set.



In the Glow set (buy here) CDN $54

I am not sure if this is still available online. I checked the availability at the store I was planning to visit and took a while for the staff there to locate this set. It is not displayed in the store yet for some reason. Don't know if it is just that store or maybe they are saving for later dates closer to the holiday season.


This set contains:
- 0.13 oz Benefit High Beam
- 0.08 oz Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzing Powder
- 0.17 oz Tarte Natural Cheek Stain in Flush
- 0.07 oz Stila Convertible Color in Peony
- 0.11 oz Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 Hour Blush in Splendor
- 0.106 oz Lorac Perfectly Lit Oil-Free Luminizing Powder in Spotlight
- 0.02 oz bareMinerals All Over Face Color in Pure Radiance
- 0.14 oz Laura Mercier Shimmer Bloc in Golden Mosaic
- 0.08 oz Nars Bronzing Powder in Laguna


I am most excited about this set as there are a few blushes that I have wanted to try but not sure if I would like it enough to buy full-sized. Also, love to try the Nars bronzing powder in Laguna as this is one of the beauty products that I constantly hear about. I have swatched it many times in store before but not convinced that I need another bronzer. So getting this in the set is very exciting for me to finally own it. 


Lorac Perfectly Lit Oil-Free Luminating Powder in Spotlight



Laura Mercier Shimmer Bloc in Golden Mosiac


Swatches. Only one of them seems very shimmery to me, which I don't think I would use too much.


Tarte Amazonian Clay blush in Splender


I love Tarte Amazonian Clay blush and this one would be my third one. I have Exposed and Doll Face already. Splender seems to be another very wearable color. I think is very close to Exposed, maybe just a bit lighter. 


NARS Bronzing Powder in Laguna

I have been wearing this for the past week, almost every day. Totally understand why so many rave about it. 


Tarte Natural Cheek Stain in Flush

I am very excited to try this as my other cheek stain is Benetint. Very different color and looks a bit purple pinkish tone to it.


bareMinerals All over face color in Radiance



Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzing Powder

I have this in full-sized already and absolutely love it. Just the rich chocolate scent would impress you already. The matte finishing and the shade is perfect for me.

Stila Convertible Color in Peony

This can be used as a lipstick or cheek stain. I have been using this as a cheek stain for the past few days. Very pigmented and it has more of a coral touch to it. Guess the camera didn't pick the color up too well.

Overall, very happy with this set. Think it is a good value for all the products and great way to try different brands in smaller sized.

  1. Oohhh I haven't seen this set! I should go check out my local Sephora. It looks nice!

    I have the Tarte Amazonian Clay blush too in Exposed! I love it. :) The Splendor color looks nice too but seems kinda close?

    I want to try the rest! Thanks for sharing!

    1. the few Sephora stores I went to 2 weeks ago didn't have them out on the floor for some reason. Check for availability online and go to the stores and ask for them if you don't see them out. I love my Amazonian clay blush in Exposed. Yes, Splendor is very close to it, just a bit more coral.

  2. Hmm - I need to try to find this online for US - I love the sun beam highlighter from Benefit and wouldn't mind trying the moon beam at all. :) SO many fun products!

    1. I love Sephora favorite sets as I can try a whole lot of products in smaller sizes without paying the big bucks. Yes, definitely check them out online and if they are out of stock online, check for availability for individual store who has them in stock. With the Christmas shopping, I think this one will go soon.

    1. it's a great idea to try different brands in this Sephora favorite set. They come in much smaller sizes and I think it's excellent way. There are a few that I love so much that after I'm done, will definitely go out and get them in full-sized.

  11. This is such a covetable set! I really want to try NARS Laguna. I was debating whether to get that or Benefit Hoola and opted for the latter. Doesn't make me not want to try the NARS though :p

    1. That's exactly what I was contemplating on, Nars Laguna or Benefit Hoola. Both got so many great reviews on them and I'm a big fan of Benefit blush/bronzer. Now I have tried Nars Laguna, totally understand why it has been so popular. I love it as it is totally matte and the color is just absolutely gorgeous.

      I love Sephora favorites. Love the variety and be able to try out so many products without buying all full-sized products. Can't wait for Sephora to get more of their favorites out for the holiday season :)
