Posts From October 2011
With Sephora Friends and Family 2011 in full force here are some helpful hints on which palettes are worth the haul.
Love them or hate them you can’t deny that palettes are where you get the most bang for your buck. You can spend $25 on a single blush or you can indulge in a palette that will range from $39-$55 that includes several blushes, several eyeshadows, and possibly more.
Of course, palettes suffer downfalls sometimes and quality isn’t always up to par with the standard line of cosmetics offered by your favorite brands plus let’s not forget contending with creams and powders in one cramped place. But if you can get passed the drama of palettes you’re in for a treat because darling they do so offer the very best bang for your buck.
Here are some suggestions and recommendations for the best palettes to snatch up during Sephora Friends and Family 2011 since 20% off sweetens the deal even further doesn’t it?
Korres hasn’t gotten any real love from me in a bit, apologies! Just nothing has popped up that caught my fancy…!
Sadly, the gift sets available at the moment aren’t the typical offering from the brand. Anyone remember some of the great kits they used to have available?
But I do have three new lip sets for Holiday 2011 that I’d like to share with you today.
If you’re a Korres fan you might enjoy these or if you’re new to the brand might I suggest checking these out to initiate you into the world of Korres.
What’s that scent Philosophy has that they gift us on our birthday…is it Vanilla Birthday Cake or Vanilla Cupcake?
You know the one….
Well, they don’t do it so well. I’ve always been mildly turned off by the smell of that there shower gel however add fluffy and sweet to the mix and my ears perk up! Particularly when marshmallow is involved!
Bobbi Brown is one to follow during the Holiday season as she has her traditional collection she releases but she also has sneaky little sets that pop up at Bloomingdales, Neiman Marcus, etc…
Last year, I hauled the Eye Couture Collection and now my I’m kinda sorta wanting the Bobbi Brown Eye Luxe Collection available exclusively at Saks.
Sephora is offering its traditional 20% off during their Friends and Family Event. Yay! Thanks Sephora.

Let’s face it, some of us are in serious denial that Tarte didn’t gift us with their traditional Cheek Stain Trio this year.
How could they? Hey, give them props for creating the stupid brilliant Vanity Makeup Case. Betcha they were so busy creating that awesomeness that they simply didn’t have time to get together a trio of cheek stains, don’t hate.
For those who already own a million of their Cheek Stains this post need not apply but those new to the brand can indulge in Tarte Holiday 2010′s Ring It In Cheek Stain Set.
This set includes a cocktail ring plus three Tarte Cheek Stains in:
- Vivid (vibrant rosy pink)

Canadians and in store shoppers…try not to worry as I doubt Sephora overlooked you. I suspect Canada will probably hear something about their own FF event soon.

Sula Blush doing me proud today.
At $8 ($6.50 on sale now at Ulta.com) who would have thought you’d get this much pigment? Think bolder, richer, and more vibrant than a NARS Blush.
