    The Becca gift set is awesome! I bought it for myself. I LOVE IT! The delux trial size is large enough that it lasts forever. I haven’t hit pan and have been using it for months. Plus, I travels better than my larger highlighter, if I don’t want to take my split pan!
    I am sad that the Sephora is sold out of the NARS blush pan. I didn’t think of picking it up at Nordstrom!
