Kaplan MD is a luxury beauty and skincare company that will soon be making a debut at Sephora. I hadn’t heard of Kaplan MD before so when they contacted me with an offer to try one of their products, I was really excited to give it a shot and relay my thoughts to all of you!
The Kaplan MD Perfect Pout Duo contains both their Lip 20 Mask (9.5g) and their Lip 20 Balm (5g) and it will be retailing as a Sephora exclusive for $23. I was told that they would be launching at Sephora this month although I’m not certain on the exact date so keep an eye out!
This set boasts that it plumps lips instantly, exfoliates and smooths fine lines with papaya enzymes, hydrates and nourishes with 22 organic extracts and hyaluronic acid as well as protects against sun damage with SPF 20.
If I’m not wearing lipstick, I’m always wearing lip balm so to test out the Perfect Pout set, I made myself go several hours without my lip balm before hand so I could really see what this set was all about.
- Step 1 – Start with dry, unhappy lips.
- Step 2 – Apply a generous layer of the Lip 20 Mask to the entire lip area as well as the area around your lips. Wait about 5 minutes. Within that time, most of the Lip 20 Mask will adsorb into your skin but you may wipe off any excess with a tissue. I also experience a tingling and cooling sensation during this step, presumably the plumping action doing its job. The sensation was mild and pleasant though.
- Step 3 – Apply the Lip 20 Balm to seal in hydration and protect with SPF.
- Step 4 – Enjoy your new insanely soft and kissable lips! 😛

Recently I saw some pictures around the web of a new Urban Decay 500 Point Perk from Sephora and got pretty excited! I usually hoard my points until something really neat comes around and this was enticing enough to get me to break. I didn’t see this on display at my local Sephora so I asked an employee about it and she was kind enough to go dig me one out from the back.

Sephora always has some fantastic gift sets around the holiday season but this year I was particularly excited about their fragrance sets. When I was browsing online just a couple of days ago they had several different fragrance sampler sets at varying price points and many of them came with a voucher to redeem for either a roller ball or a full sized bottle of your favorite from the set, depending on what set you purchased. After the craziness of the VIB sale though, there only seems to be a couple of options left for fragrance sampler sets online. I have no idea if they’ll be restocking but if you’re dying to get your hands on a different set, it never hurts to call your local Sephora and see what they still have in stock!

I’ve had Sephora VIB Rouge status for a while now but have yet to go to a single event so I thought I might as well look into this and see what the VIB Rouge Holiday Soiree is all about.
I was sort of on the fence about going for a while because social gatherings tend to make me a little anxious but I figured it couldn’t be that bad so I decided to buck up, put on my big girl panties and go do some makeup shopping while munching on peppermint bark.
