Bobbi Brown Forest Metallics FOTD

Gosh after a LONG time I finally got around to doing the FOTD that was requested when I originally purchased the Bobbi Brown Forest Metallics palette!

You can see my prior FOTD (and review) using the Burnt Sugar Metallics Palette by clicking here.

You can see my first impressions about the palettes by clicking over here.

Ok….I hadn’t yet used this palette until this morning and I have to give everyone a fair warning if you haven’t used yours or if you are about to purchase this. The warning is this is a very, very, very, very dark palette. Obviously when you see the palette you’ll notice how dark the greens are but they go on even darker and it’s a bit of a challenge to create a look with this! Not to say I don’t love the palette, I most certainly do, however it is a bit hard to work with as the colors are difficult to blend correctly without the entire look looking BLACK. So a word to the wise prior to using or buying this practice caution with your application icon wink

Pop Day to Play Palette

I do indeed like the look of the new Pop Day to Play Palette!

Count the Muse as possibly adding this to her wish list!

This new limited edition palette has 24 eyeshadows that range from eye popping to soft and subdued!

Lots of room for play in this palette and the colors are good enough for venturing from work to play, day to evening in a snap!

$42 nabs you this wallet full of fun icon wink but sadly it’s out of stock at Sephora! Keep checking back to see if it pops back soon!

I’m not entirely sure about the price tag at this point but I do already own one of the Pop wallet palettes which I really like so this could possibly be worth the high price tag icon wink We shall see!

Early Gift Giving from Bath and Body Works

It’s never too early to start shopping and my little eyes have spied some nice deals on Bath and Body Works all wrapped up and ready for buying and giving!

$15 will nab you a duo of a jumbo 12oz size of Hand and Body Lotion plus a Hand Soap in a cute caddy!

These are available in the three popular winter scents that are always available at Bath and Body Works around the Holiday Season and those are Winter Candy Apple, Vanilla Bean Noel, and Frosted Cranberries.

Personally, for $15 each these make a cute little gift for your mail lady (if you have a woman delivering your mail), something for a neighbor, a nice grab bag gift, or it’s just nice having these around for what I call “the unexpected”. We all get unexpected gifts sometimes and it’s always nice to have a little extra gift tucked away for those times when we can whip it out and offer it to the person who has unexpectedly surprised us with something sweet!

These are $15 at the moment and I’m sure as the Holidays approach they’ll go back to their regular $22 price range so why not nab a few now and save some money icon wink
