Beauty Bits & Bobs
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 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!
$1 Shipping on orders great and small at Urban Decay!
Sweet! If you need to stock up on some primer or just one shadow or even do a larger order the price can’t be beat!

A lovely girl, Kitty, asked that I do some purple looks!
So……….. here you go Kitty!
Just don’t ask me what I used as I can’t remember! I believe a little MAC Viz-a-Violet is in here, some MAC Kitshmas, some Urban Decay Grifter and some other bits and pieces!
I got a sickeningly large box from my mate that lives in Oxford today. Inside was enough crisps to last me for the next two years of my life and possibly beyond (I’m not a fan of crisps here in the US and a majority of my mates in England know how much I adore crisps their end of the pond thus whenever they send me a package it ends up loaded with bags of crisps), almost as many packages of digestives as crisps were also inside, a box of Roses, a box of Heroes, a ton of Hotel mini slabs, general Doctor Who themed bits and bobs, tons of Lush (Included the Muse’s beloved 17 Cherry Tree Lane) plus, here’s the best part, a HUGE amount of Pout, Pop, Pixi, and Boots!
We got some Pixi Palettes here, some Soap and Glory bits from Boots (been wanting to try it), a ton of Pout including blush (I’ve never tried any Pout Blush), many Pop bits I haven’t yet tried! I’ll be taking pics and doing reviews shortly
So I guess this basically means I’ll be doing two things this Holiday: 1. Getting fat off British Chocolate, Biscuits, and Crisps and 2. Giving myself a Make Over using all this product!
Anyone wanna come over?
Much love to my mate Shazza for sending me such a freaking array of awesomeness and spoiling me rotten!
