Musings of the Day: Running on Empty….!

IMG 0995

I get terribly excited when I finish something. Being a beauty junkie you probably realize how challenging it is to hit pan on an eyeshadow or complete a shower gel or just generally use something up.

When it does happen I feel like throwing a party or at the least having someone pat me on the back and congratulate me for my hard work.

Here’s some products I’ve completely used up recently.

Beauty Blast from the Past: Stila All Over Crystals Palette

Stila All Over Crystals Palette

Some folks collect coins, some stamps…as for me, I collect makeup.

I have quite a few older palettes that I’m unable to use due to their expiration dates but I find I can’t part with them. It’s a disease I tell ya.

One such palette is the Stila All Over Crystals Palette.

Does anyone even remember this?

Sephora 3 Day Shipping Fabulous for Some, Bogus for Others

Sephora Shipping

I hear a ton of people complain about the ship time with Sephora if they live on the West Coast but personally, I never had an issue.

It takes me about five days total to get my order. So if I order on Monday, it typically arrives by Thursday or Friday.

This is part of the reason that 3 Day Shipping is so bogus…!

If you order Monday it ships Tuesday and arrives by Friday. Big deal that’s how it was for me before anyway!

I guess some folks might think this is fabulous but if you live on the East Coast or just never had any issues with the regular Free Shipping Sephora offered you might feel this is completely a waste.

Now if I ordered on a Monday and it arrived on a Wednesday, that, would truly be cool.

Is Sephora’s 3 Day Shipping deal fabulous for you?

Or just bogus? To me it feels more like five days than three!

Do share!
