Mid-Range Makeup Brands
I stopped by Target several days ago to pick up the new NP Set Smoke Signal Palette and Neutrals Palette Holiday Palettes. I admit to purchasing them for myself but I also got a few to stuff stockings with. They are $9.99 each and have nine shades of shadow each. Quite a nice buy and they are pretty pigmented (I’ll review for you soon). I’m partial to the Neutrals Palette myself! They aren’t festive shades by any means but they make a welcome addition to my stash for Winter looks!
For $10 bucks I’m thinking beauty budget fans will loves!
Check ’em out at www.target.com
Helpful Hint: Don’t look for these by the normal NP Set display, check in the front, on the end cap. They’ll be hanging on a hook there!
Mmm when repetitious goes terribly wrong. I just finished my review of Clinique Strawberry Fudge for Holiday 2010 and proceeded to come across a bit of a rehash of the palette with the new Milly for Clinique Pretty in Prints Collection for Spring 2011. Granted, not completely the same colors but oh so familiar and similar….
Thanks to Samantha for bringing this to my attention! Stila Floral Chic Palette is available exclusively at Urban Outfitters and is $10, just like the Travel Girl Palettes.
Looks cute eh?
See the inside…
The last Stila Travel Girl Palette, Fabulous in Fiji, is available now at www.stilacosmetics.com
I got mine at Ulta a few days ago. The colors in Stila’s promo image are pretty spot on for what the palette looks but you can compare my photo to theirs if you like!
I don’t think these will be the last palettes we see from Stila in this regard. Perhaps the theme will change but I imagine they’ll do a similar launch soon considering how successful this one was. Although quality varied from palette to palette and the formula wasn’t quite the same as Stila’s normal range, I will say some it’s delightful they actually stuck to the limited edition theme of things as I’ve seen the palettes sold out and not being restocked which bodes well for the too loosely, commonly used term, “LE”.
Will you be hauling Fiji?
Even though the colors don’t agree with a few fans I imagine people will still purchase it simply because it does have some collector’s value. Sounds weird but those who have a bit of a makeup hobby can relate.
Share your fav Stila Travel Girl Palette moments!
P.S. Stila Creme Bouquet is back online exclusively but I hate it’s in a rollerball. Grrrr!
Totally off the topic of makeup but is anyone watching The Walking Dead on AMC? Holy Zombie-time Batman! Loves it! It’s super fun seeing this graphic novel come to life and they really haven’t forsaken anything creating this. It’s gruesome, bloody, cuss-filled zombie fun! I’m obsessed with Zombie’s so this is so me.
I even got out my Hello Kitty Rest In Peach Zombie Glitter Body Spray out, you know, Zombies are people too, they dig the glitter and shiz. Fun fact, Andrew Lincolns, the dude that plays the legendary Rick Grimes, is British! I dunno who I have a bigger crush on, Rick Grimes come to life or little Glen, token smart Asian kid.
Anyway, enough of about Zombies.
Let’s talk cool makeup deals.
Has anyone indulged in the Sephora Favorites Gift Sets? These have gotten better and better every year and feature a plethora of great products. Now you might be confused and assume they include only Sephora makeup but not the case dude! They actually contain an array of products from fav brands such as Tarte, Bare Minerals, DKNY, and so much more.
I recently checked out the Sephora Favorites Give Me Some Lip Gift Set.
