Yes to Carrots is holding a little contest at the moment on it’s Facebook Group asking readers, “What do you say yes to?”
Last week the Muse said Yes to smoother, softer hands by using Yes to Carrots Pampering Hand and Nail Spa. She was thinking about it and she realized that when it comes to cosmetics she’s constantly saying YES, YES, YES! Hmmm it’s rare you hear no uttered from these lips when makeup is invovled! With all the sales going on lately it’s getting harder and harder to say nay!
Hmmmm the Muse came across some interesting sales on Sephora today! Seems Sephora is axing Pop Beauty and Vincent Longo from the line up and slashing prices on LE Holiday goodies across the line!
And here we are with another sale……
Nothing is sacred this year and virtually everything, including luxury gifts, are getting the axe and experiencing an abnormal price cut! A reader mentioned that MAC in the UK is even having a sale…makeup sale in Europe? Unheard of!
Sephora appears to be doing it’s normal house cleaning by placing Pop Beauty and Vincent Longo on sale however they are also slashing prices on many, many gift sets! This is highly unusual and leads me to believe that the items simply didn’t sell well this year and they have to get rid of them somehow. Right now it’s 7 pages give or take a few pages for items that were already on sale such as Bourjois Paris and Sugar Cosmetics however I’m seeing big name brands on the sale list such as Stila, Urban Decay, even Fresh!
I’m curious what will happen as Christmas comes nearer and in fact passes for that matter. I’m guessing we are in for some serious discounts after the Holiday. We’ve seen some great sales this season but I think we are in for some SERIOUS sales come the New Year! Who knows this year you may see them giving away items for free during the semi-annuals! At this rate we are all going to need extra storage to stash away our ridiculous hauls.
Here’s some items that Sephora has slashed and that the Muse suspects will be slashed even further after Christmas.
Obviously the recession is the root of all evil in the cosmetic world because it’s causing some serious temptation to splash out major bucks to haul all we can at these prices! Sheesh! The Muse is being good and not indulging but she can’t say these aren’t some nice steals and deals that are popping up lately!
Damn that Tom Jones! I’d fling my panties at him any day of the week!
Fact of the matter is it really is cold outside! The Muse just got home after fighting with traffic and idiotic New York drivers. But she’s safe and sound in her house now. At the moment it’s a stormin’ outside and 15 inches of snow is expected to land outside. The good news is it makes it feel more like Christmas but the bad news is that the Muse happens to be way too old to go outside and build a snowman! Darn.
View from the Muse’s makeup room!
But she really doesn’t have to forsake that snowman….Lush has a solution!
There isn’t anything in the world like a really hot bath when the chill of the winter is howling outside your window. Forsaking the outdoor snowman for an indoor one in my bath was the way to go today! Meet Lush Frothy the Snowman Bubble Bar:
Frothy creates mounds of soft, fluffy bubbles (hence his name…froth…..bubbles…get it?) in your bath while scenting your hair, body, and skin with a mix of coconut, licorice, and vanilla. He’s quite moisturizing and after stepping from the tub you’ll notice how soft and smooth he’s made your skin! The Muse thinks he’s rather cute as a stocking stuffer or a little topper on a gift.
The only sad thing about Frothy the Snowman is you have to crumble him up into little pieces to use him in your bath but once you get over mourning his broken little body you’ll be happy to step into your hot bathtub filled with lovely, scented bubbles to relax and de-stress!
Crumbled remains of Frothy waiting to melt away into masses of bubbles! He’s a holly jolly soul and welcome in my bathtub anytime of the year but sadly he told the Muse not to cry as he’s limited edition and will be gone after Christmas but he may be back again someday!
If you’re wanting to get your smurfy seductions skillz on this is the gloss you’ll want to use! Tinted a blue shade (what other color would it be?) it blossoms into the perfect shade of pink to make your kisses extra smurfy special! Too Faced Smurfy-Eyed Liquid Eyeliner $17.50 USD
A face powder that brightens and tones! Hmmm I don’t need much else other than the cuteness of Smurfette’s mug smiling at me from the powder! Loves it!
Whether you love it or think it’s ridiculous the Too Faced Smurfette Collection is, if anything, unique! The Muse thinks if you grew up in the 80’s you’ll simply adore it. Hey the Muse has taken beauty advice from far worst than a smurf! How bad can it be?
