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.
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.
- 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!
Available now at Sephora and Sephora.com
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.
I got brave and walked out of the house today and last night with tangerine lipgloss from the Sephora + Pantone Universe Color of the Year Lipgloss Set.
You ever have those days where you tried something completely wrong for you but proceed to pose in front of the mirror and tell yourself how bloody brilliant it looks on you.
I had that moment this morning with tangerine lipgloss but I walked into my office and my sister quickly me brought back to down to earth when she said it looked like the Joker met the Wet and Wild Lipstick display.
Damn her! She’s right.
I seriously can’t do oranges.
But I tried, I failed, but it was fun none the less and it doesn’t take away from the fact I’m so slapping a Muse Approval on the new Sephora + Pantone Universe Color of the Year Lipgloss Set.
They wait for me to make a big azz order and proceed to offer me a discount after the fact? Grrr Sephora! Damn you!
