Beauty Bits & Bobs
Another late morning for me and a sloppy makeup job
I went a bit retro with my wardrobe this morning and slapped on some really kitchy accessories (You should have seen my vintage red pumps…I’m fabulous aren’t I? NOT!).
Here’s you go a very rushed red FOTD:
What I Used (Everything and the Kitchen Sink):
MAC Rose Pigment
MAC Mineral Eyeshadow in Lovestone
MAC Frost Pigment
MAC Ruby Red Pigment
Bare Escentuals Glimpse in Hotspot
Bare Escentuals Glimmer in Cerveza
MJ Jeweling Pencil in RD505
MAC Technakohl in Black
MJ Lash Expander Mascara
The Muse’s lovely mate Janice has done all the hard work for us and has been busy like a bee compiling all the prices for the Holiday Color Collections.
If you have your wish list and was wondering how many pennies you’ll need to save to make that list a reality do head on over to Specktra Blog and see the price list.
All prices are USD so if you happen to be in Europe, Asia, or some other exotic part of the world you can compare your country prices to the US prices (which I’m sure you’ll find are far more cheaper in comparison)!
One of our lovely readers, Betsy, has alerted the Muse that the Givenchy Holiday Collection is for sale at Saks!
The Muse wasted no time in calling Saks up and asking if she could come down and grab some of the yummies for herself!
Much to my delight my MA told me I didn’t have to come down that she’d ship it all free plus load me up on some goodies!
I couldn’t resist and I ordered the entire collection minus the nail polish (which I didn’t even know was part of the collection).
SQUEAL! I can’t wait for it to arrive! I could have just gone over but it’s chilly, overcast and about to rain so while I’m driving home from work I can have visions of Diamonds and other yummie Givenchy bits run through my head!
Thanks Betsy for the heads up!
The Muse suggests heading out to your nearest Saks and grabbing this while the grabbing is good because I know for a fact this is going to FLY off the shelves before you can say I want it!
I didn’t expect this collection for a good solid month yet and believe you me I’ve been stalking both the Saks and Sephora websites for updates! If it wasn’t for Betsy I wouldn’t have been so lucky to nab it!
If you want more details on the collection do click my above link (Givenchy Holiday Collection is highlighted with an embedded link for your viewing pleasure) or head on over to visit with the Muse’s mate, Erika, to see the details on this very FINE collection! Click!
Keep your eyes peeled for an early Holiday FOTD using this collection PLUS nice, juicy pictures and reviews when it arrives!
Thanks to everyone that participated in the poll!
It’s super helpful to me when I know if you are enjoying the content or not
It appears the masses really liked Japanese Cosmetics Week! Yay! I’m so glad!
In the future I hope to bring you more videos!
Many thanks for your support and comments!
YES! Gimme More!
Yummie! I love me some pink!
If you’re collection isn’t as obsessively large as mine here’s a perfect little solution for storage!
Sephora Metro Traincase in Pink is $98 and has a four tier foldout trays, a detachable shoulder strap, plus a lock and key to keep all your pretties safe and secure!
This is the perfect solution for organizing and storing a decent size stash of cosmetics and hey it’s pink who doesn’t want a pink train case right?
I’m seriously considering getting one for trips since it goes with my cell phone, my ipod, my psp…what? I can’t help if I bring the girl to geek
