Beauty on a Budget: LA Splash Eye Sparkle Review, Swatches, Photos

LA Splash Eye Sparkle 001

I’m not of a mineral eyeshadow girl for two reasons. 1. Fall out….! Ugh anything loose is always turns into a dramatic application for me and 2. if I start indulging in mineral eyeshadows from various e-tailers I’ll be in a whole hell of alot of trouble. I already have enough beauty addictions! I could just picture myself with endless baggies and small jars of piggie laying all over the place.

No, thanks.

I did indulge in a few LA Splash Eye Sparkles though as they are Buy 2, Get 1 Free at Cherry Culture.

Check ‘em!

Nuance Makeup Collection Salma Hayek at CVS

Nuance Makeup Collection Salma Hayek at CVS

I haven’t stepped into CVS recently but the new Nuance Cosmetics Collection by Salma Hayek is available right now. I’ve noticed a few various folks tweeting and posting the Nuance displays at their local CVS stores.

From what I understand, so far, the collection is actually quite good but I can’t speak from experience as I haven’t actually tried any of it yet. I will say some of the packaging looks rather brilliant.

Salma went full on with this collection and it includes not only color cosmetics but skincare, haircare, and bodycare as well. Someone had mentioned in a prior comment that she’s as big a beauty junkie as we are. I didn’t know that about her so as a junkie I’m assuming her products are going to rock it hard as if anything us beauty junkies are picky about our products.

Here’s the full release info. Do take a look and let me know if you tried any of it or of any of it sounds interesting to you!

Looking forward to your thoughts!

the Balm Skincare at TJ Maxx and Marshalls

the Balm Skincare

Thanks so much to Amy who took a fab photo of her findings at TJ Maxx. Readers have been telling me all week that the Balm’s new Skincare Collection is at TJ Maxx and at Marshalls. I haven’t been to either store yet but dead curious if mine have a few offerings too….

I don’t think prices are discounted, looks like they are very close to retail, but still it’s rather cool to see such a new collection already available at discount stores hmmmm….

If you’ve seen them in your area do share your location and perhaps some pricing!

I’ll be on the look out around here, see what I find, and report back!

The full collection is available on at www.thebalm.com
