Cheap Thrills: Essence I Love Stage Eyeshadow Base

Essence I Love Stage Eyeshadow Base ($3.49) is newly launched eyeshadow primer to the Ulta Essence Collection.

Essence I Love Stage Eyeshadow Base

Essence designed this to be used like Benefit’s Stay Never Stray as you can use it as an eyeshadow primer or a prep and prime for concealer. The creamy texture promises a crease-free, longer wear for both eyeshadows and concealers.

I’m quite interested to try it as I am currently between eyeshadow primers at the moment but not sure I should invest too much hope into a under $4 eyeshadow primer.

Think it’ll be awesome?

One wonders!

Available now at Ulta and Ulta.com

Rich, creamy, and HD ready these promise a long wearing formula and are available in five shades.

Do you need them?

Musings of the Day: It’s Ok To Shop for Makeup at Forever 21

Forever 21 Love Beauty Shimmer Tinted Lip Gloss 1

Some title eh? But I really like digging through the Forever 21 Love & Beauty Makeup Collection when checking out. They always have those buckets that surround you as you edge towards the register in what seems like the never ending line from hell (why is F21 always so damn busy?).

I think they intentionally put all that stuff around to either 1. make super spontaneous sales or 2. to keep you entertained while you’re waiting with twenty people in front of you.

Palettes, glosses, oh my! All utter rubbish of course but sometimes, well only sometimes it’s ok to shop for makeup at Forever 21.

No shame in my game.

E.L.F. Studio HD Blush for Fall 2012

E.L.F. Studio HD Blush Fall 2012

HD Blush from E.L.F.? That’s happening!

E.L.F. Studio HD Blush ($3) is a new five shade blush selection that quite resembles Make Up For Ever HD Blush. The resemblance is uncanny but the price tag, not so much. E.L.F.’s competitive pricing brings these in at a mere three bucks each.

I hurried to order four of the five shades yesterday because I feared they’d sell out super fast.

Take a look!
