I’m a want to create the perfect smoky eye for Fall.
In order to obtain my ideal smoky eye I think I shall indulge in the Sephora The Smokey Eye Brush Set…..
Everything I need to create said smoky eye…btw is it smokey or smoky…hmm…
Jump for it!
$42 bucks and a near 5 star rating on Sephora has me wanting this kit…I’m such a bloody mush when it comes to brush sets. I always tell myself, “You so don’t need another brush set…” but my evil side proceeds to reply with, “Yes you do, what could one more hurt?”
This six piece set contains tools for creating a perfect smoked out eye. I actually do a fair job of a smoky eye on myself and don’t need a brush set to do it but hey….my evil side said it’s ok to indulge.
You’ll get a total of five Sephora Professionelle (I wonder if the “le” on the end of Professional makes these more important) Brushes and a how-to booklet plus a chic faux leather case for toting around your tools.
The brushes included are a wide smudger, an all over shadow brush, a small domed smudger, and a dual sided brow brush and comb. Plus did I mention you get Volume Mascara too? Sweetness!
I think I wants it if that’s ok. I just don’t think I needs it but hey who’s keeping track of that!
As predicted by yours truly in my previous post
the Sephora Fall Catalog 2009 is all about Fall Trends for the season. Dare I say I can’t recall Sephora Fall 2008? How weird! The Muse’s mind is working slow today to say the least.
Moral of the story is Sephora choose this year’s theme on Fall 2009′s trendy looks that I’m sure we will be privy to on the catwalks in September. Until that time I took some snapshots of the new catalog for you to peep at!
Check it below!
Many of this year’s looks are pretty much the typical Fall fair which we have seen a quite a bit over the past two years or so such as a dramatic cat look, bold lips, and smoky eyes. Although many of the looks lack color (it’s Fall so who wants color I guess!) I’m still enjoying the elegant, sophisticated, classical looks they choose for the catalog.
Many of the products in this catalog are already released such as the Make Up For Ever HD Collection, Urban Decay Lipstick Collection, and a few odd pieces that are new such as the Bare Escentuals Buxom Line (new liner, lip liner, etc…), and of course Kat Von D’s Perfumes. Basically the catalog won’t be bankrupting you any time soon as the offerings are simply nothing to get too excited about if you’re 1. read about them already or 2. hauled them recently!
Without further commentary from me here’s some of the pics from the catalog that should be arriving in your mail box soon or maybe it’s already there!
Overall, it’s nicely put together this year but nothing jumped up and grabbed me. The catalog is medium size or so, not too big, not too small. If you follow makeup trends this should please as for me I’m a march to my own beat kinda girl so the trends aren’t really thrilling.
Did you get your Sephora Fall Catalog yet?
What do you think?

I’m a V.I.B.! Ha! Jealous? You have no idea what I’m talking about right? Sephora has taken the liberty of spamming my inbox this morning with my honorary badge of V.I.B-ery aka Very Important Beauty Insider. Honestly, I’m always knew I was extremely important, no joke, and it simply tickles me that Sephora now knows too!
Click it for further deets on how I’m down with the V I B and what it’s all about!
If you spend a gazillion dollars a year at Sephora they’ll beef up your Sephora Beauty Insider account and make it a V.I.B. account. Gawd, I love how Sephora is like a McDonald’s Happy Meal lately. You get a prize and a treat around every corner, SCORE!
Not only did they take the time out to send me a 10% off coupon that I can use in store or online (I’ll share it later on if I’m able too…not sure if it’s one use or not) but they also gave me a slew of new options with my beauty insider membership.
So the basic deals are you get invites to special events…no info as of yet what those events could be but I imagine it’s probably a buncha junkies gathering around some new product or something similar. On top of this you get bigger, badder freebies and access to not yet launched products…..meh all exciting I guess. Also you get access to the V.I.B. hot line….ummmm I’m guessing this is where you can discuss makeup porn with other junkies..kidding, kidding. But yes they have a hot line I suppose it’s for skin care, make up advice….again pretty cool perk.
All exciting yes but the biggest, bestest, most incredible thing evers?
Holiday Gift Card!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Everyone run around in circles and get excited! They are rewarding you now for spending buckage at Sephora! You read that right! The more you spend the more you’ll get on a gift card.
