Whether you’re craving a simple summer makeup look or you’re hunting for a cute, small gift for your girlfriend- the Sephora Cabana Cutie Kit ($18 USD / $22 CAD) is something to check out. This limited-edition, 2-piece kit includes a travel-sized MicroSmooth Baked Bronzer Duo in Honey Heat as well as a full-sized Color Reveal Lip Balm in Unique Pink that self-adjusts to each individual’s perfect shade of pink.
I’ve already sung my praises about Sephora’s baked cosmetics, and this travel-sized bronzer is going to stake a permanent spot in my travel bag for that reason alone (I’m in love with the full-size version, which is available separately here).
What I love most about the bronzer is that it features two shades, each with a different texture; a lighter, shimmery bronze on the left is great for giving a luminescent glow while the deeper, satin bronzer on the right is perfect for creating a flawless all-0ver natural glow. I use a blush brush to apply the bronzer, because it is so small it’s not really easy to grab each side individually with a large, fluffy brush. You can of course, just mix the two sides together for a perfect harmony of both shades and textures.
The lip balm is pretty awesome too- if you love the smell of vanilla extract, you’ll love this lip balm. It glides on smoothly, and after a couple minutes, it reveals a glowing shade of pink that really just enhances the color of you lips. It lasts surprisingly long for a lip balm, with the color lingering a little longer than the hydrating feel. It’s quick and easy to apply sans mirror, making it the perfect beach bag companion.
This duo is a great, affordable summer face (the bronzer can be used as eyeshadow too FYI) or travel buddy!
