Last month Nordstrom had their yearly Anniversary sale which I honestly didn’t hear about before this year. On Youtube and blogs I saw lot’s of content about the sale so obviously it made me curious: what was that amazing beauty sale with gifts with purchase, value kits and special edition items?
The good news of it all was that the sale was accessible for me in the Netherlands. The bad news was that the gifts with purchase didn’t ship international and that a couple of brands were not available for international shipping as well. If I lived in the USA, I would’ve gone crazy in this sale haha, because the gifts with purchase were so amazing!
I ended up getting my hands on two Becca value sets. Today’s blog is about the first one: the Glamglow x Becca We Know Glow Set that contains a mini Glamglow mask and a mini Becca highlighter. Such a cool combo!
Tis We Know Glow set contains a Glamglow Gravitymud Firming Treatment and a Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed. Both mini and hot pink!
The Glamglow Gravitymud mask is a peel of mask that helps tighten and ‘lift’ your face. I always prefer a peel of mask over a wash of mask, because peeling it of is so much easier. I also feel like this mask helps taking of some dead skin cells and dirty of the face, because it will be pulled of with the mask!
This pink color was made especially for this We Know Glow set. It’s bright (bright bright) pink with a silvery glow that makes the mask reflective and probably also helps with brightening the face a bit.
The mask applies very easily with a brush or the finger. I prefer a brush because otherwise I get the mask all over my hands. It dries down pretty fast but it takes a while before it starts tightening. You need to leave the mask on for about 20-30 minutes, according to the box. After a while I felt the mask pulling on my skin but nothing to crazy. It was way more comfortable than most mud masks. Also, I could still move my face because the mask is flexible enough.
Pulling the mask of was easy as well. It only left a few small patches on my face but that was easy to remove with a damp cloth.
After taking the mask of my skin did feel a bit ‘tighter’, soft, clean and I also felt like my complexion looked a bit brighter.
The only thing I did not like at all about this mask is the crazy strong smell. I feel like it’s supposed to smell like strawberries but boy, it’s so strong and chemical. I wish that would’ve toned the smell down a bit.
The highlighter (2,4 grams, full size Becca highlighter is 8 grams) comes in the Limited Edition shade Rosé Glow and it’s such a gorgeous shade! The packaging is Limited Edition as well with the hot pink, so it’s a nice collectors item to have.
The shade is light pink with a gorgeous warm, golden shift. It looks a bit to dark for my skin tone in this swatch, but when blended, it goes very well with my fair skin tone.
The rose golden glow warms up my face in a gorgeous way. I also love it as a simple one-swipe-eyeshadow shade.
For the Dutchies: yes you’ve read that right! Douglas already sells this set!
