Sorry for the the interrupted flow of service today. You might have experienced some lag, slowness, or a 503 or two this afternoon. My server has been kinda touch and go the last few hours but I think it’s back and in working order again. See? Hotlinking kills! MUA’ers are legendary for this…grrrr!
Anyway, I apologize for the problems and hopefully I’m back up and running smoothly.
Now, last of the Clarins Holiday Collection 2010 for you today. I’ve already reviewed the highlighter and the powder which I simply adored and now for the eye and lip products.
Ahh the Bobbi Brown Sparkle Glamour Quad, one of Bobbi’s more unique and different offerings this Holiday wouldn’t you agree? If you’ve played with it already, chances are you’re thinking that it’s very different for Bobbi and you might even be scratching your head and wondering exactly what to say about the quad. The texture and formula of the eyeshadows included are far different from anything I’ve personally tried from Bobbi Brown before and are interesting, to say the least.
Let’s have a look!
Sonia Kashuk What Glitters Glows Eye Palette for Holiday 2010 should be available at your local Target, if not, give it time it should be there shortly. Yes, it is a tad bit of a rehash on Sonia’s normal releases. She does favor releasing this style palette for the Holidays and actually it’s kinda a seasonal release for her as well but I do like exploring these palettes regardless as they are inexpensive, make great gifts, and are elegant palettes for a nice price.
I picked up the Sonia Kashuk What Glitters Glows Eye Palette, let’s have a look!
My best friend’s Jai has a little cousin, umm wait, scratch that. She’s not really little nor does she like to be referred to as little. She’s an adult at the tender age of 11.
No seriously, my friend’s cousin is 11 going on 30. We are just completely in awe that this child is growing up way too fast. Either that or he and I are so very old and we didn’t realize it. We recently took her out for a little shopping expedition and ended up at an Icing store. Me being me I was all about oooo’ing and ahhh’ing over the cute accessories and makeup bits and bobs although much of the makeup is geared towards tweens and earlier teens I still loving picking through it all.
My findings led me to Flaunt Beauty. Anyone see this stuff yet? It’s over priced makeup and fragrance available exclusively at The Icing. I’m such a sucker I absolutely fell in love with the cutesy palettes because they sported cute Pin Up Girls. Loves!
Ahhh the great debate. Should you indulge in the E.L.F. Endless Eyes Pro Mini Eyeshadow Palette or shouldn’t you? 32 Eyeshadows, sponge applicator, mirror, nice slim compact, $5 buck price tag….sounds dreamy right? Where could you possibly go wrong indulging since the price isn’t too bad….
This year E.L.F. has two of these limited edition palettes available for the Holidays. The one I’ll be reviewing here today is the mini version which includes 32 shadows for $5 bucks and there’s another, which I didn’t purchase, that includes 100 eyeshadows for $10 bucks.
First off, these are obviously way popular because they are sold out however E.L.F. is allowing orders for when they do come back in stock. Secondly, I purchased mine on a sheer whim because I know alot of people wanted to hear about it, see photos, etc…prior to purchasing it for themselves. And thirdly, I am a bit of a makeup snob and palettes like this don’t always garner my love and attention. Slapping 100′s of eyeshadow into a palette can prove great particularly from brands like Urban Decay, hey bring that on, but present me with one from E.L.F. and I’m naturally a little wary about the quality.
Let’s have a look and see if this bad boy lives up to it’s “professional status” as dubbed by E.L.F.
