Mid-Range Makeup Brands
I love Sephora. Seriously, it truly is the best place to get all your fav brands in one place. Best part? Bobbi Brown at Sephora now too. Dood, brilliance. I was actually gagging over the array of Bobbi at Downtown Disney in California this weekend when one of the artists there, Vanessa, came over to say “hey aren’t you…” Shout out to Vanessa for being so sweet to talk to but she unexpectedly surprised me with the “What are your favorite products?” question…man, that’s impossible to answer sometimes when you’re as addicted to makeup as I am.
Speaking of my love of Sephora…it doesn’t always extend to their color cosmetics. I’ve had some hit or miss product mishaps with their house brand but sometimes you can really grab the jackpot with some of their makeup. Take for example the Sephora Moonshadow Baked Palette, brilliance in my humblest, have you tried?
If that nude, natural palette wasn’t your bag no worries…a new Moonshadow Palette features shades for the perfect smoky eye.
My favorite holiday cost are powdered Almond Crescents.
Not everyone is familiar with them but those that are realize how very dangerous they are since you can’t simply eat one.
Same as Philosophy Shower Gels, you can’t own one…come on.
How about three?
I’m just saying that you so NEED the Mally Beauty Starlight Deluxe Eyeliner Library!
Introduced last year, this 10 piece set sold out SUPER fast and hasn’t made a reappearance until this year.
My thoughts? Grab it, grab it quick before it’s gone again.
The better news? Mally also has a brand new Deluxe Automatic Waterproof Liner Collection for those of us who already own the Starlight Library.
You might think candy canes, Santa, and your mom’s homemade cookies are the best thing about the Holidays but beauty junkies know it’s all about the coffrets, the kits, the sets, the palettes, and the many steals and deals we can get on some of our favorite makeup products.
Tis the time for gift sets people particularly gloss gift sets.
I’ll tell you one I look forward to every, single year…the gloss sets from Napoleon Perdis, tis my favorite gloss set of the season.
Over the weekend, I was willing to try out something new….
Imma tell you about what my mates deem a culinary delight, that’d be chocolate covered bacon. My friend Libs is here visiting from London to celebrate our best friend’s birthday and she brought chocolate covered bacon along with her for the trip. Damn you British people are strange folk (kiddin’).
I’m not much for bacon so dipping it into chocolate isn’t going to really win me over here. Seriously, chocolate covered bacon is all kinds of disgusting, no matter how much Libby will preach the bible about it to ya. Of course, she won over everyone but me with it…*shrug*
If you absolutely need to try it for yourself, you can get the non-British variety at Marini’s Candies who sells it in a gift box for $12.95 because pieces of fried pig fat look fancier when it’s in a gold gift box and covered with chocolate. Yay!
In the spirit of trying new things I picked up Pur Minerals Natural Knockout Set, ya know, because I needed to wash the taste of chocolate bacon out of my mouth….
