Matching Pink FOTD

I was feeling like a really subtle pink look this morning!

Here’s what I came up with (those of you who commented on my “tacky” matching you’re going to LOVE this as I’m just a matching demon today! They may have to call in the fuzz with all the pink and matching going on in this look!):

Do you love it?

Why is it whenever I wear a pair of Converse my feet look like boats? Serious my entire foot looks like a caddy! I wear a size 7-8 (5-6 UK) depending on the shoe and these just happen to be a size 7 (6 UK) yet my feet look about the size of a small country! Serious I can use these things as weapons and hurt someone really bad if I’m not careful! What’s that old saying? Wear the boxes, throw away the shoes? I even own a custom pair that’s a size 6 1/2 (4 UK) and STILL the bloody things make my feet look like a monster! Now I know how Paris Hilton feels! I can’t begin to tell you how many pairs line my closet yet I can’t help but feel like the Jolly Green Giant every time I wear a pair!

They don’t make David’s foot look monstrous! I don’t get it! Note to Self: Become Lean, Lanky, and Sexy to work a Converse Sneaker!

Converse if you’re listening make hightop sneakers more flattering for chicks with small feet! Thanks! Love you!

MY GOD! ATTACK OF THE KILLER SIZE 7′s!!!!!!!!!!!!!

NARS Travel Brush Set

in Nars

I love you NARS. Truly I do! Your blushes, your glosses, your gorgeous shadows…!

But….this……..is not happening:
 5517159

Pretty right? Price is not so pretty!

$170 for a mini travel size brush set is beyond my budget!

I wonder if this is a misprint?

If you’re insane, unstable, or just obsessed with NARS you can purchase this NARS Travel Brush Set from Nordies for $170 (brushes that may or may not be dipped in solid gold).

Lush NA Chat Party

in Lush

headerLight

Tis time to party once again at Lush!

Join our online festivities on Thursday, December 6th, from 3:00 pm to 7:00 pm (PST). Anyone can participate and there’s no bouncer at the door!

I blogged about this earlier and you can see my original post here as it has some valuable info! Click here for that post!

I have no idea what’s being offered this year in the way of Limited Edition Products, Specials, Etc…but I can say last year’s party was nice as we ended up being able to purchase Honeywood Shower Gel which was a limited edition product that smelled of Honey I Washed the Kids.

Moral of the story is it’ll be nice to intend and see what sort of goodies Lush has in store for it.

Lush NA Parties are in no way as wonderful as Lush UK Parties but it’s worth a wander in to see what nice products or specials are going on during the Party!

Sadly, I’m unable to attain as I’m at a broker meeting most of the day Thursday but I’m hopeful I’ll make it home in time to enjoy some of the LE products if any are offered!

I have a sneaking suspicion that Snowcake Shower Gel will be offered! So if you missed the Lush UK Party maybe you can nab it at the Lush NA Party!

Jill Stuart Christmas Coffret 2007 First Impressions

Picture+303

I got my Jill Stuart Christmas Coffret a few days ago. I had promised myself I wouldn’t bother with it but I must say I am happy I went ahead and purchased it because it’s quite gorgeous!

My favorite item out of the gift set is the very cute satin pouch it came with! It’s really roomy and just gorgeous for storing little treasures in! I love this!

The coffret isn’t anything to write home about to be honest. It did include some great items but it’s nothing you absolutely need so if you missed out buying this rest assured you’ll be fine and won’t die of lemming. I promise.

The set also included Shimmer Tint Face Gloss which is scented with a beautiful rose. The gloss comes in a mirrored compact that slides easily opened and closed. Very nice item but pointless a bit as it’s a balm and I don’t particularly care for using balms on my face.

The lipgloss included is a gorgeous shimmering red color which is quite nice. Packaging wise it’s very beautiful with the standard jewel look of all Jill Stuart glosses. As I said the color is gorgeous but I’m slightly worried about the applicator. It comes with a sponge applicator but it doesn’t appear to pick up much product upon first look! This remains to be seen as I have to smooth some on my lips before judging fully!

You’ll also get a cuticle oil which also comes in the gorgeous Jill Stuart packaging with the gem encrusted topper! This is something the Muse can really use as her cuticles are in terrible shape in the winter!

Another favorite of mine is the scented choker! It’s quite a nice choker and they give you plenty of ribbon with it so you can tie in snugly around your neck with a bit hanging down for a nice effect! It’s quite a pretty piece!

And finally last but never least would be the Brilliance Eyes Palette in the special Christmas packaging! This is a lace palette with ribbon and quite lovely! If you’re a collector of the Brilliance palettes this will be something you’ll definately appreciate! I somehow fail to get excited about these palettes as the colors tend to leans towards the same thing over and over. The only colors in this palette that really shout at me and are “new’ish” would be the pinky rose color and the bright yellow. The other two shades are similar to what I already have in previous Jill Stuart palettes. This is not to say that the palette isn’t lovely because it truly is but I do wish that they’d release some newer shades!

Overall, a beautiful Coffret from Jill Stuart this year but I’d say you can safely skip it unless you’re a die hard collector and fan! It’s beautiful yes but nothing to get too hyped over!

Urban Decay Limited Edition Shattered Collection

I think Urban Decay is half-baked.

First of all I can’t begin to tell you what a big Urban Decay fan I am! I love, love, love the brand!

But today I’m just feeling confused.

They sent me an E-mail this afternoon trying to get me all hyped about their new Limited Edition Shattered Collection! MY GOD Only 50 are being made!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Um…

So?

What’s the point? It contains nothing that’s LE.

Urban Decay’s Limited Edition Shattered Collection (Only 50 are being made! My god get yours NOW before it’s too late!)
wwwwwwwwwww

The collection includes a mini primer potion, Shattered Eyeshadow, Glitter Eyeliner in Air Guitar, and a mini 24/7 eyeliner pencil!

The price is nice sure but I’m wondering why only 50 are being made and why it’s so highly limited edition?

When you think about it you’re not really getting that big a deal. Glitter liners are $18 each anyway and so are UD Shadows. So what they threw in a mini eye pencil and a small primer potion!

Hell, if you want you can pick up Shattered and Air Guitar any day of the week!

I’m so confused.

Almost as confused as I was when Sephora decided to throw me that curve ball with the Colorful Story Palette! Didn’t hear about that? Click here for the details!

I’m clueless as bloody hell so Jeers to you Urban Decay! You’re obviously smoking from the same pipe as Sephora!

What the hell?
