What to Purchase During Sephora Friends and Family 2011: The Palette Edition

Sephora Palettes

With Sephora Friends and Family 2011 in full force here are some helpful hints on which palettes are worth the haul.

Love them or hate them you can’t deny that palettes are where you get the most bang for your buck. You can spend $25 on a single blush or you can indulge in a palette that will range from $39-$55 that includes several blushes, several eyeshadows, and possibly more.

Of course, palettes suffer downfalls sometimes and quality isn’t always up to par with the standard line of cosmetics offered by your favorite brands plus let’s not forget contending with creams and powders in one cramped place. But if you can get passed the drama of palettes you’re in for a treat because darling they do so offer the very best bang for your buck.

Here are some suggestions and recommendations for the best palettes to snatch up during Sephora Friends and Family 2011 since 20% off sweetens the deal even further doesn’t it?

Smith’s Rosebud Medley of Lip Balms (In a Tube)

Smiths Salve

I happen to be a traditionalist.

My first tin of Smith’s Rosebud Salve came into my possession nearly a decade ago and I’ve dubbed it the Solution to Life, the Universe, and Everything ever since that faithful day.

I’m pretty anal so my favorite salve in a tin form kicked in my OCD good nature and I was all worried about the germ and bacteria factor. Ew! Thankfully a year or two ago Smith’s blessed us with a tube version of their cult favorite balm. I loved it but like I said I’m a traditionalist and actually prefer the tin over the tube….

However, the good news is now Smiths’ has created a trio of their popular salves in a tube form and also indivdually…so you aren’t limited to the Rosebud Salve version anymore you can choose from other Smith’s Salves in this new packaging!
