Stash Spoglight: Napoleon Perdis Eye Patrol Eye Shadow

stash+spotlight

It’s been a while since I stash spotlighted hasn’t it? I thought I’d do a rather quickie post of a haul I did months ago when Sephora was killing Napoleon Perdis from it’s stores.

Check it below!

I’m not Napoleon Perdis’s biggest supporter and yes I’ve been known to make fun of his tan a time or two. But I admit he had a few odd pieces in his collection that were decent enough one of which were the Eye Patrol Eye Shadows. I think they ran about $22 when they were fully priced at Sephora but I got them at the grand total of $6 bucks each when NP was axed. Btw take a peep at this post when I was predicting NP’s demise from Sephora, I’m such a blooming fortune teller.

These are really quite pretty so we must give Napoleon a few props for creating such a nice little shadow. They have a hint of shimmer, a soft silky texture, and very nice color pay off. Likey! Plus hauling all of ‘em for $6 bucks each didn’t hurt either.

Hauled It: FaceFront Cosmetics Cheek Up Blush in Saloon ‘n Saddle

hauled

My love affair continues with FaceFront Cheek Up Blush! My recently haul is FaceFront Cheek Up Blush in Saloon ‘n Saddle. Oh my god how I love thee!


Click ahead to hear it!

It could prove to loud for those not brave enough to give it a whirl but Saloon ‘n Saddle is such an incredible coral shade (or bright orange if you prefer) for Summer. I’m utterly loving how very unique and outrageous this one is. Obviously I need to use a very light hand with it as it’s deeply pigmented but boy is it ever lovely. It also works a treat as a shadow too for a fiery sunset eye look!


Loves it!

It’s available from from FaceFront but it’s LE so step on it if you want to haul. I’m loving it, def part of my Summer Must Haves!

MAC Beauty Powder Blush of Youth and MAC Eyeshadow SugarShot Review and Swatches

Hey, hey!

I’m just in from bumming around the mall with my mate Kira. We went to MAC to pick up some MAC Fix+Rose which we were both gagging for. Turns out one bottle was plenty, the Muse was thinking she’d need a case. Anyway I’ll tell you all about it tomorrow or next week for now I’ll spread a little cheer with some MAC A Rose Romance and MAC SugarSweet!

Jump ahead for it.

I’ve been so blooming busy that I didn’t have time to hop to MAC to pick up the other items I was wanting from the MAC A Rose Romance and MAC SugarSweet Collections.

My first round up from SugarSweet didn’t include two items I really wanted which was MAC SugarShot Eyeshadow and MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Perfect Topping. I ended up dropping Perfect Topping after seeing how chalky it was. Presented with it at my local CCO in the future I can see myself purchasing but for now I was being ever so frugal and just skipped it as it wasn’t as pretty as Refined was. I did finally end up getting Sugarshot though. This was something I really wanted and wasn’t available during my first purchasing spree. But finally snagged it! Yay! It’s a good one and I rec getting one as it makes a rather nice all over color wash or a highbrow highlighter. It’s a creamy white golden shimmer that’s very pretty.

MAC A Rose Romance I pretty much hauled all there was too haul aside from the fix I so badly wanted and the Blush of Youth Beauty Powder. Blush of Youth isn’t as nearly pigmented as Summer Rose but it is pretty none the less. With a bit of layering it might work well on it’s own as a natural blush or best over some blush to amp it up a bit. As with Summer Rose I think it works best by using it over the new Just a Pinch Gel Blush. I think both of these Beauty Powders were some of the best I’ve seen from MAC in all my collecting days. Def grab them as they are well worth the cash.

Aside from this my haul was very tiny as I am looking forward to Style Warriors as everyone else is too I’m sure.

Feel free to spill what you hauled lately from MAC!

Hauled It! QVC Day of Beauty

If you’re a beauty junkie you probably already knew that QVC had an all day beauty event on Saturday. As tempting as it was to stay inside and just watch beauty on the tube, the weather was too nice to resist the temptation of outdoor play so this Muse Tivo’ed up everything that was on this Saturday and fast forwarded through it early this morning to get a peep at what she missed!

qvc

After fast forwarding briefly I came across two or three items I had to have but was somewhat relieved that it wasn’t a ton of must have items.

Here’s what I hauled:

Bobbi+Brown+Laura+Geller+3

Bobbi+Brown+Laura+Geller+2

Bobbi+Brown+Laura+Geller+1


I’m not sure why but I got a bit crazy with all the Laura Geller items offered. It seemed like such a good deal and the Kiss and Bake set. The few times I’ve tried Laura’s baked goodies they have always been a tad chalky but I decided what the heck, might as well re-try ‘em!

As for the Bobbi Brown, obviously you can see why I love these shadows plus I thought it wasn’t too bad a deal for all three.

I’m looking forward to scrolling through the rest of my Tivo’ed recordings to see what else was offered on Saturday!

What did you haul?
