Sephora + Pantone Color of the Year Collector’s Edition Set Photos

Sephora + Pantone Color of the Year Collectors Edition Set Photos 2

I’m legendary for loving Sephora but hating on their makeup collection. You have this vast boutique of quality makeup and a company that chooses to bring it all to you in one location but they proceed to fail at their own cosmetics collection.

How is that possible?

But facts is facts, Sephora has evolved and instead of having to sort through a ton of hit or miss products, most of what I’ve purchased lately, has been great.

Proof in point, the new Sephora + Pantone Collection. What a incredible collection. The packaging, the pricing, the quality…it’s all so very up scale. Well done Sephora.

Here’s a few images of the new Sephora + Pantone Color of the Year Collector’s Edition Set.

Sephora Stila Eye Shadow Sets $12

Sephora Stila Eye Shadow Sets

Stila Eye Shadow Sets (Trios) are now $12 at Sephora. You might recall Stila’s venture into the budget realm with the It Girl Palette sometime ago, these sets follow the same design and concept but are now available in five shade selections.

Choose from:

  • Hollywood Blvd
  • Melrose Ave
  • Mullholand Drive
  • Santa Monica Blvd
  • Sunset Blvd

The original It Girl Palette was quite good quality but Stila definitely has a track record for turning down the volume on some of their budget picks so I imagine these aren’t the original Stila Eyeshadow formula but I’ll have to wait and see how they are.

On a positive note, they are $12 bucks!

Sweet!

Available now at Sephora and Sephora.com

If thicker lashes is what you seek than Tarina Tarantino Fleur de Lash Mascara is here to save the day. No bells, no whistles, just a big, bushy brush that grabs lashes up and creates plump, full, fat lashes.

Ahh the joy of simplicity.

Sephora Be You Lip Balm Review & Swatches

Sephora Be You Lip Balm 5

Sephora Be You Lip Balm is an extension of their recently introduced Color Reveal Lip Balm. I liked Color Reveal a lot. It was cheap, it flushed my lips very nicely, and I only complained about the taste….pretty darn great for a self confessed ranter about the Sephora Makeup Collection.

So, I was pretty excited about the Be You Lip Balm but I’m not sure why they bothered changing the name. The color is called Coral Twist and they could have simply just included a new shade or added it to the Color Reveal Lip Balm line up right? But hey, I don’t express knowledge on the mysteries of makeup marketing.

Let’s take a look and see if Be You Lip Balm is as great as Color Reveal.
