August Birthday by Sephora

Happy birthday to you, gorgeous! One fun thing about that special day is picking out the birthday gift at Sephora. Offered for beauty insiders, you can find your gift online or in stores.

Each month is set to receive a certain choice of birthday gifts at Sephora. The gift does not cost any Insider points to redeem. I have always purchased something when asking for this gift, but I am unsure if it requires a purchase. Let me know in the comments below!

My birthday is in August, so this year my matched birthday redemption was the Kat Von D beauty box. Oh good! I was excited about trying more (like the lipsticks) from this fan-favorite.

The beauty box came with the 2018 Allure beauty award’s tattoo liner, 3 samples of Studded Kiss creme lipstick (in Outlaw, Lolita, and Vampira), and a loose setting powder.

Tattoo liner is the first time I opened. My first impression was that it was a nice, dark, true black liner that had an artist’s felt tip. The flexibility made the line both precise and accurate. I’ve been using this every morning for a kitten-eye. Think work-wear appropriate, tame cat eye.

Kat Von D cosmetics takes pride in being vegan and cruelty-free. The birthday kit was emblazoned with a cute, red Vegan heart symbol. This is a trusted brand, but always check the website as items or ingredients may vary by product. Sound good?

There were a few other choices for the August birthday gift. All were just as adorably packaged, and came with multiple items to sample some favorites before a full purchase. Given the chance, I would choose the Kat Von D set again. Repurchased & recommended.

What is Suitaru? Suitaru is a creative interpretation of the Japanese word for style: sutairu. I first heard this word in a Latin class at Florida State University. Some words stand out while others disappear. "Sutairu" has stayed with me. My name is Natalie and I was born on a military base in Okinawa, Japan to parents who were very in love. My mother, father, and I lived there until I was two years old. Although we moved back to America, the desire to travel is in my heart. Since, I have been to surprising parts of the world. I have spent time exploring many different places that I never dreamed I would go. Emerald waters of Italy, the best pizza in my life in Croatia, and a yoga retreat in Iceland. For me, travel inspires creation. Whether that comes out as art, music, or fashion--a certain style is experienced with every passport stamp. This site is a documentary, of sorts. It is a place to post otherwise unseen photographs. Comment along--feedback is fun. Thanks for accompanying my journey! Suitaru embodies a philosophy of innovative, impactful, timeless style. Style is individual expression. Style is art. "Style is eternal." YSL
