SEPHORA COLLECTION Bronzed and Blushing Face Palette


Sephora Collection Bronzed and Blushing Face Palette is "a sleek face palette with one universal bronzer shade, a classic blush hue and a blush with a bright pop." It retails for $15 USD ($18 CAD) and contains 3 powders (0.11 oz. each) This palette is limited edition.

Los Cabos Bronzer is described as a natural looking sun-kissed glow. 
Blushing Pink Blush is described as a classic, rosy pink.
Coral Punch Blush is described as a coral. 
"This three-in-one, portable palette features stunning hues for a variety of daytime and nighttime looks. Each head-turning shade is buildable to help you create the perfect color for your skintone. Bestselling Los Cabos Bronzer delivers a nautral-looking sun-kissed glow, Blushing Pink Blush is the ultimate rosy pink for a pretty pop of color, and the Coral Punch Blush gives the apples of your cheeks a nice punch for that sweet summer touch. Wear each shade alone or together depending on your desired look, and use the included mirror for on-the-go touch ups."
 
The packaging is slim, sleek and features a mirror. A few nice details about the palette is the rose gold text on the front and the etched "Sephora" on the mirror itself. I wouldn't necessarily say it's travel friendly, as it seems to be more on the delicate side. I would be concerned the mirror would shatter or crack. 

*Side note: The palette is smaller than I had anticipated and I spent ages trying to hunt it down in-store. In case you're in the same predicament, it's featured in the on-the-go section by checkout!

The product itself is soft, smooth and applies evenly. All three shades have a satin finish and leave behind a slight sheen to the skin. They had good color payoff and lasted +6 hours on average.
Los Cabos Bronzer is a warm tan brown with a golden sheen. This bronzer gives the skin a natural glow and can be built up or sheered down, depending on your skin tone. This shade lasted +7 hours before showing noticeable fading.
Blushing Pink Blush is a light petal pink with a slight sheen. I found this shade applied powdery but blended into the skin after a few hours of wear. This shade lasted +5 hours before noticeably fading.
Coral Punch Blush is a rosy coral with a slight golden sheen. This shade can be applied sheer for a natural hint of color, or built up to a bright pop. This shade lasted +6 hours before showing signs of fading.
Overall, I think the color selection and shades are very basic, but it is a good value considering the quality. I feel like the Sephora Collection goes unnoticed a lot of the time and people feel the personal brand won't carry the same luxury as higher end brands that are available through them. It's a nice basic/starter palette to have, especially if you're new to make up.
