Sephora’s Too Faced Make Over

I found this while browsing around Sephora:
711901 hero

I’m not makeup artist and I just dabble a bit and try to create nice looks but I’m far from an expert but the look you see above was created by a Too Faced Makeup Artist.

um…

well…

How does one state one’s opinion without being rude?

But….

This kinda looks crummy.

Her lips and cheeks are nice but the eye makeup is so sloppy plus it appears they aged the girl about 20 years with that bronze color!

Am I being too harsh?

Some News On the Philosophy Front

Sephora.com is sold out of a majority of the Philosophy goodies they previously had however I can report that a majority of Manhattan’s Sephora stores have many of the products on sale and available for purchase!

As per my discussion (click here and here for details) before Philosophy has completely revamped the line and the bottles are no longer 16oz in size nor $16 in price they are now officially jumbo sized 24oz at a price tag of $20 per a bottle (The Muse approves! Good Deal!). I love the larger size and the lovely price tag but I have to say the new bottles are a bit clumsy for your shower. These aren’t going to fit in any caddy or shelf you might have in your stall so that might be a problem for storage. Also when you’re all wet and soapy in the shower I’m picturing many people dropping these as they are heavy and with your hands wet the potential for drama is huge!

The shelves at Sephora were lined with the new bottles. I can’t do a comparison now but I have a little something, something that I’ll show you soon! It’s a steal, a deal, and it comes in the new jumbo packaging! I’ve ordered it and am eagerly awaiting it’s arrival and will of course post my review soon!

I’ve seen Philosophy on sale at the following Sephora stores:
Sephora SOHO
Sephora on West 34th
Sephora at the Westchester Mall
Sephora 42nd & Madison

And what’s left online can be found by clicking here (maybe they’ll restock)!

I haven’t checked Nordies. I actually went in last night but completely forgot to drop by the Philosophy counter! But maybe they are reducing the prices at Nordies as well!
