I love Sephora Favourites sets because they ALWAYS offer a great selection of products at a great price.  I was going to sit this set out, but then some fellow beauty bloggers started enabling annnnd then I made the order.
I ordered their 2015 set (check out my review here) last summer and I really loved that set.  I still use a number of items from it, and am just about to purchase a replacement for the eyeliner that I have almost finished.  I love that these sets contain a mix of brands, and a mix of product types.  Sephora does a fantastic job at putting these sets together, and this one is no exception!

At first glance, I was most excited about the Becca highlighter, the Tarte lipstick and the Laura Mercier eyeshadow crayon.

Nars Laguna, Becca Opal, Vita Liberata Tan Mousse (wet), Vita Liberata Tan Mousse (dry)

Vita Liberata Phenomenal 2-3 Week Tinted Tan Mousse in Medium

I have never used a tanning mousse before, and was pretty surprised with it came out of the pump purple.  This quick swatch left a stain for about a week on my arm (oops) so I know this lasts.  I am looking forward to using this later on in the summer when I am heaving to a backyard BBQ or to the beach!

Nars Bronzing Powder in Laguna

This bronzer is such a classic.  I actually already have a mini of this, so I sold this unused mini in a Facebook group I am a part of.  I would love to own this as a full sized product, but with my bronzer collection I just can't justify it at the moment (or probably ever), though I may redeem some Optimum points for it one day at Murale.  I love how soft and subtle this bronzer is, and the slight luminosity it has.

Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Opal

Again, I already have a mini of this product from last summer, but this year they really updated the packaging.  I prefer the newer packaging because it looks more similar to the full sized product.  This highly pigmented gold highlighter is so perfect for the summer, and in a pinch makes for a great eyeshadow.  However, when I swatched it something just seemed.... off.  The one I got this year seemed much more rosy and pink compared to last year's.  Do you notice a difference?

Smashbox eyeliner in "Penny Lane", BareMinerals lipgloss in Trail Blazer, Tarte lipstick in Park Ave. and Laura Mercier eyeshadow crayon in Copper.

Smashbox Always Sharp Waterproof Kohl Liner in Penny Lane (Full Size)

I am pretty sure that I already own this eyeliner.  If that is not the case, I know I own a few from this line and I might already own the purple.  I love that this twist up eyeliner is always sharp because of the built in sharpener in the lid.  This chocolatey brown has bronzer glitter in it, and is great for a bronzed smokey eye in the summer.

Tarte Amazonian butter lipstick in Park Ave.

For some reason I thought that this lipstick was full sized, so I was a little bit disappointed that it was a mini when I opened it.  I re-read the packaging and realized that it was my mistake.  Either way this is a generous size, and I have yet to ever finish a lipstick, so I think I can manage.  This is just the prettiest swipe of nude lipstick that looks perfect with a bit of a tan.  My friend was actually asking me for suggestions for her wedding lipstick and this was one of my top picks for her and her special day!  It has a bit of a minty fresh tingle to it, and is so comfortable to wear!

BareMinerals Marvelous Moxie Lipgloss in Trail Blazer (Full Size)

I typically don't reach for peachy shimmery glosses like this, but it is so pretty on that I think I will need to revisit that.  It is comfortable on the lips though it does settle a bit into my lips.

Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colour in Copper (Full Size)

How pretty is that swatch? I have not yet used it on my eyelids yet, but I have another colour from this line and they have great staying power.

Formula X The Colors - Revved Up in Rose Gold

This rose gold polish is super pretty.  I have a few others that are similar to this, but I am going to be keeping this at my desk incase I ever need to do a quick mani on the way to an event (don't laugh, I have done my nails in the bathroom during lunch before if I have a ~fancy~ evening event).

Over all I am really impressed by the quality of this collection, and by its diversity.  Rather than just including bronzers and self-tanners, they included some eye products, a highlighter, and a nail polish in order to create a well rounded set.  While there are maybe some switches I would have made, it all comes down to personal preference, and Sephora did a great job curating this.  Also, I'm pretty sure that whose ever job it is to put these sets together has the best job ever, I mean, think about it.

Sephora Favourites Bronze Bares All retails for $48 CAD and is still available online and in store!
