Beauty News: By Lauren Like At Sephora

by+lauren+luke

As per my previous post about Lauren Luke’s makeup collection appearing on Sephora, today it went live and I couldn’t be more excited for her. The palettes are all available now via Sephora for $32.50 each.

“My hope is that you will be waiting at the letterbox for your package of makeup about to chew the postman’s hand off with excitement—just like I always am.”

Indeed Lauren, we know the feeling well!

Stila is taking over the world once again at full speed! You’ll see them appearing on HSN in September according to a recent Tweet by the company themselves.

Until than you can haul your heart out with a few items that are popping up on HSN already including Stila Barbie Cans (although these have been popping up in other locations for far cheaper).

I’m excited I can get Stila on HSN…can we has free shipping maybe? and easy pay? and maybe cool kits? and cookies too k?

Thanks.

Do you like the idea of Stila migrating and offering some of it’s products on HSN?

Stash Spoglight: Jill Stuart Eye Shadow Palettes

jill+stuart+cosmetics

One of my most prized collections is that of my Jill Stuart cosmetics particularly my Jill Stuart Eye Shadow Palettes.


You’ll see why after the jump!


Jill Stuart Cosmetics have that certain beautiful packaging that makes us forget most of the makeup world and just stare in awe (and possibly drool while doing so) and excitement at the beauty that makes up this makeup. Much of the packaging is unique to anything I’ve purchased before and very, very beautiful. I’m a fan particularly of the eye shadow palettes whith house soft shimmering shades of color. I started out my collection with a single palette and soon after hauled five more. Since that time I ended up with near 20 palettes but only nine now make up my collection as various ones were handed over to friends who fell as in love with them as I did.


Although expensive and at times repetitious the brand holds a very special place in my heart. Hope you enjoyed my stash spotlight of Jill Stuart Shadow Palettes!
