The Sephora Beauty Insider Community at times sends gratis to its members. As some of you may know, I took 2017 off from most social activity. Those in my personal life saw me a lot less. My blogging was almost nonexistent. Social media also slowed down. I just needed some time off from most of my responsibilities. On 08/16/17, a Beauty Insider Community moderator at Sephora reached out to me to see if I wanted some free products. The answer to that question is always yes. Who does not love free products? Everything is always better when it is free. In exchange for the free products, Sephora and the brands want honest reviews. It is impossible to review makeup when your break from life completely halts makeup application. Well, I finally tried all the items Sephora sent me on behalf of these brands, and my reviews are ready. Better late than never.
