Mally In the Buff Eyeshadow Palette Could Be The Next Urban Decay Naked

Mally In the Buff Eyeshadow Palette

The new Mally In the Buff Eyeshadow Palette is officially mind. Or will be when I pay off the QVC mortgage on it…(QVC offers it on two monthly payments)!

This naked piece of perfection is an eleven piece palette that features natural shades of brown, bronze, and taupe for a super natural look for Fall.

Shades:

  • Au Natural
  • Bubbly
  • Buff
  • Tiger’s Eye
  • Cappuccino
  • Shimmering Taupe
  • Brownstone
  • Oak
  • Egyptian Gold
  • Toast
  • Chocolate Diamond

It also includes a Double Ended Shadow Brush and Eye Base (although this scares me as I think it’s cream, not good in a powder palette).

It’s available at an intro price of $45 for two monthly installments of $23 each.

I ordered it as soon as saw it! Loving the nudes.

Available now at QVC.com

P.S. I’m headed home. I need some down time. The cold I have is kicking my butt today! Apologies for the lack of posts but I was just busy clearing off my desk today and just didn’t have time to crop images for posts I already have written. Add to the fact that the antibiotics I’m taking are making me a little sleepy and you have a lazy, uninspired Muse that wishes this cough would go away.

New reviews tomorrow…! Promise.

I hope you’re all having a wonderful day and looking forward to your weekend ahead!

Tarte Clean Slate Tinted Treatment BB Primer

Tarte Clean Slate Tinted Treatment BB Primer

Tarte Clean Slate Tinted Treatment BB Primer debuted on QVC today.

Tarte calls there unique BB Primer something that goes above and beyond what your average, everyday primer can do. It’s a tinted primer that can used alone or worn under foundation for extra coverage. The silky formula is available in three shades (light, medium, or tan) and provides a matte finish.

I actually like they call it a BB Primer and not a BB Cream. You already know how I feel about tossing those words around right?

I think it’ll be more along the lines of what MAC offers with there Prep + Prime Beauty Balm.

What do you think?

It’s available now at QVC.com exclusively.
