I gotta admit that I thought the Bare Escentuals The Perfect Gift Collection was an ickle boring but part of it’s appeal was 1. it’s packaging and 2. its auto delivery status on QVC.
Basically Bare Escentuals packaged this up on an auto delivery which offered new seasonal colors every few months. Fabulous gift in my humblest which is why I ordered some as just that but I couldn’t go without getting one for myself because they came in a hat box. Gush! Totally slayed me. Couldn’t resist that kinda packaging. I know, I know I shouldn’t give into the packaging demons but I couldn’t resist plus hey it was a mere $36 dollars for several full size BE products. Not a bad deal all around.
But the colors…well they are a bit meh but wait until you see them in action!
Physicians Formula has a new Glam Collection Shimmer Strips Gel Eyeliner available for the Holidays. The collection features three new strips of Shimmer Eyeliner and three new mascaras. They break these up into eye color groups as in “select this color to flatter blue eyes”, “select this color to flatter brown eyes” and so on and so forth. I’m personally not keen on anyone telling me what flatters my eyes most as I’m of the mentality that anyone can wear any shade of color they choose. Granted some shades simply don’t work for me but most are a-ok and I don’t limit what I wear because I have brown eyes…..Just because I have brown eyes doesn’t mean I have to stick to wearing golds, browns, and black because Physicians Formula told me so.
Get my rant?
Aside from that the idea behind the product is interesting since it gives you not one, not two, but three gel eyeliners in stackable jars.
The appeal of 25 shades of Gel Liner with a price tag of $6.95 each is obvious. Cheap gel liner? Lots of colors? Yes, yes, yes please. Coastal Scents makes their Gel Liners in a slew of shades and yes, with that very appealing price tag.
Are they worth it?

Part of the Tokidoki Makeup Collection’s appeal is of course the cute packaging. Seriously? Tokidoki images on makeup? Totally kills me. Love!
I recently hauled the Tokidoki Glitter Eyeliner Set as I hadn’t tried the glitter liner range prior and this was a great deal at $25 for six mini liners plus the extra 20% off at Sephora sweetened the deal.
Let’s have a look!
