Hmmmm the Muse came across some interesting sales on Sephora today! Seems Sephora is axing Pop Beauty and Vincent Longo from the line up and slashing prices on LE Holiday goodies across the line!
And here we are with another sale……
Nothing is sacred this year and virtually everything, including luxury gifts, are getting the axe and experiencing an abnormal price cut! A reader mentioned that MAC in the UK is even having a sale…makeup sale in Europe? Unheard of!
Sephora appears to be doing it’s normal house cleaning by placing Pop Beauty and Vincent Longo on sale however they are also slashing prices on many, many gift sets! This is highly unusual and leads me to believe that the items simply didn’t sell well this year and they have to get rid of them somehow. Right now it’s 7 pages give or take a few pages for items that were already on sale such as Bourjois Paris and Sugar Cosmetics however I’m seeing big name brands on the sale list such as Stila, Urban Decay, even Fresh!
I’m curious what will happen as Christmas comes nearer and in fact passes for that matter. I’m guessing we are in for some serious discounts after the Holiday. We’ve seen some great sales this season but I think we are in for some SERIOUS sales come the New Year! Who knows this year you may see them giving away items for free during the semi-annuals! At this rate we are all going to need extra storage to stash away our ridiculous hauls.
Here’s some items that Sephora has slashed and that the Muse suspects will be slashed even further after Christmas.
Stila Shine on Gift of Glaze Regularly $28 USD now on sale for $22 USD
Urban Decay Essentials Regularly $39 USD now on sale for $25 USD
Philosophy Under the Mistletoe Ornament Lip Shine Gift Set Regularly $28 USD now on sale for $25 USD
Vincent Longo Diamante Quad Regularly $40 USD now on sale for $28 USD
Pop Rose Bell Blush Palette Regularly $28 USD now on sale for $19.60 USD
Too Faced World Domination Tour All Access Backstage Beauty Collection Regularly $42 USD now on sale for $34 USD
Tawaka “The Ball” Regularly $65 USD now on sale for $35 USD

Obviously the recession is the root of all evil in the cosmetic world because it’s causing some serious temptation to splash out major bucks to haul all we can at these prices! Sheesh! The Muse is being good and not indulging but she can’t say these aren’t some nice steals and deals that are popping up lately!
What about you?

The Muse reported earlier on the Too Faced Smurfette Collection and you’ll be happy to know it’s now making a starring appearance at Sephora!
If you’re wanting to re-live your youth and step back into the 80’s head on over to Sephora to nab any number of Too Faced Smurfette themed items!
The collection includes:
Too Faced Smurfette Mood Swing Emotionally Activated Lipgloss $18.50 USD
If you’re wanting to get your smurfy seductions skillz on this is the gloss you’ll want to use! Tinted a blue shade (what other color would it be?) it blossoms into the perfect shade of pink to make your kisses extra smurfy special!
Too Faced Smurfy-Eyed Liquid Eyeliner $17.50 USD
Available in two smurf approved shades this liquid liner adds a bit of smurfy sparkle to your lash line! Silver and of course Blue is available!
Too Faced So Smurfy Eye Shadow Collection $32.50 USD
This palette supposedly contains Smurfette’s favorite shades! The Muse is digging the shades whether or not Smurfette actually loves ‘em or not we’ll never really know!
Too Faced So Smurfy Illumination Face Powder $26 USD
A face powder that brightens and tones! Hmmm I don’t need much else other than the cuteness of Smurfette’s mug smiling at me from the powder! Loves it!
Whether you love it or think it’s ridiculous the Too Faced Smurfette Collection is, if anything, unique! The Muse thinks if you grew up in the 80’s you’ll simply adore it. Hey the Muse has taken beauty advice from far worst than a smurf! How bad can it be?

Tuck a cute little something extra into your favorite makeup junkie’s stocking this season with Too Faced Glamour To Go Pocket Palette! Although it’s possibly the cutest stocking stuffer ever it would also make a fine inexpensive gift for a friend, family member, or an office Secret Santa. At $19.50 USD you can’t go wrong by hauling yourself a few of these as gifts! The palette is about the size of a credit card and contains eight eyeshadows, four lipglosses, and one blush!
The palette contains an array of lovely shadows which are nicely pigmented. Considering it has 8 shadows you can get at the least 8 looks but of course combine a few for something new! At $19.50 USD for more than eight looks it’s a steal! The palette also includes four glosses which have quite a nice metallic almost frost-like finish. The Muse felt like these weren’t too glossy however they do nicely with a bit of clear gloss on top! And finally you’ll get a brownish, natural blush. This wasn’t pigmented enough to work on it’s own and appears a tad bit muddy on my cheeks so I used it in conjunction with my own blush to add a bit more pop to my looks. It works well as almost a finishing type of powder.
The shadows range from cool to warm shades and you’ll see basic shades like green, light pink, yellow, and brown. The glosses are all pretty cool pinks aside from one golden beige shade with hints of brown and peach.
The goods come housed in a chic little palette which contain the shadows on the top part with a mirror and a pull out draw which has the four glosses and blush on the bottom half. I’m not a fan of the fact that the blush and glosses are together considering the blush powder dusts off into the glosses! Yak! Mess anyone? Aside from that I like the general idea of the palette as it’s small, easy for travel, and quick looks. You can’t get an amazing look out of the palette but you can get some very nice, fuss-free looks which are quite nice for daily day to day wear. It’s particular convenient for stashing away on trips as the airport is so very strict about the contents of one’s train case nowadays.
Here’s two separate looks I created with the palette. The first image I’m using the blush from the palette as you can see it is somewhat dull looking. I didn’t really like it and it wasn’t pigmented enough to work on it’s own.
If you’re shopping around at the moment searching for a perfect yet inexpensive beauty palette for someone I do recommend checking this little guy out! The price is appealing at under $20 bucks plus you’re getting a nice bit of product for your dollar.
The Muse thinks your stocking will look a bit brighter if you tuck a Too Faced Glamour To Go Pocket Palette in it!
Anyone try this?

Too Faced Smoky Eye Palette Review
Stuff your stocking with something mini this Holiday Season. Too Faced Starry-Eyed Mini Glitter Eyeliner Gift Set contains four of their popular glitter eyeliners tucked into a cute mini gift set ready for gift giving (or just keep it for yourself, you know you want it!)!
I always find it difficult getting through a full size of glitter eyeliner so this set was the ideal item to add to my stash of cosmetics. The set includes not one shade but four! Sweet! What’s not to love about getting four in one set right? I’m pretty partial to anything that contains glitter and shimmer (as if you didn’t already know) so completing my holiday looks with a bit of glitter liner is pure perfection as far as this Muse is concerned!
The set includes all of the following:
Ohh & Aah (Black & Silver)
Super Freak (Hot Pink)
Mad Mad Love (Baby Pink)
Stalkerazzi (Golden Brown)
The applicators are thin and dense for precise application of a nice straight line across the lash line leaving behind a trail of shimmering goodness! Each set comes in a pink box which sports a cute little tag in the back with To: and From: fields. The Muse’s reads: To: the Muse From: the Muse, Have yourself a Merry Little Christmas gorgeous! Teehee!
Too Faced Starry-Eyed Mini Glitter Eyeliner Gift Set is $25 USD which works out to around $6 or so per a liner! Not a bad deal considering one full size is $17.50 and that price only gets you one liner so for $25 you can have four shades! W00t! The Muse makes the idea of hauling so easy with her swift and clever mathematics doesn’t she?
The moral of this story is that I loves anything that’s mini and Too Faced Starry-Eyed Mini Glitter Eyeliner Gift Set is on my favorite list for Holiday Gift giving to you, from you!
Head on over to www.toofaced.com and check out their other mini sets then come back here and tell me which ones you’re lemming! Inquiring minds want to know!

How fun! The article doesn’t say much but it looks like they are also releasing two new shades of Too Faced Starry Eyed Glitter Liner in blue and silver!
And behold…the star of the collection….Too Faced Smurfette Illuminating Powder!
