A few years ago everyone went wow, wow over the Sephora Blockbuster Palette. Granted, at the time, we hadn’t ever seen anything like it (pre Sephora introducing Blockbuster, after Blockbuster, after Blockbuster palette…)…..
I mean people were generally excited about it. So much so that it sold out and was gone for a good deal of December so we all had panic attacks about not getting our hands on a ka-chingin’ amount of makeup. Needless to say I think it was late January before we seen it again….
So…if you hadn’t experienced this epidemic for yourself at the time, you might be wondering why we got that excited about Sephora makeup. I haven’t a clue to be honest….It was just the latest and greatest to hit the mark I suppose.
Moral of the story?
Flash forward several years and Sephora Endless Color Blockbuster Palette is available. $435 dollars worth of Sephora makeup (sarcastic yay!) housed in a palette shaped like a Sephora bag. Lord knows if you can’t dig the makeup, at the very least, you have to dig the packaging.
I’m created the Back to School Beauty Budget Picks for College students and Back to Schooler’s in need of some inexpensive beauty finds that won’t break their bank. This series is all about affordable skincare, cosmetic, and beauty bits and bobs for those heading back to school in the next few weeks!
Ahh the evil allure of high end makeup. Smashbox, Bobbi Brown, MAC……you want it all but you aren’t wanting to dish out the high end price tags for it.
Well….my little Back to Schoolers, jump ahead for three of the best ways you can indulge in high end for a low cost.
When I was a kid I was quite the little tom boy and lord knows, in some cases, I still am. My best friend happened to be a boy when I was a kid (and heck I have a best friend who’s a boy now too…well he’s more a girl than a boy…) however he’d so dump me everyday at the same time when the boys across the street got home from camp. Hell, I was good for 8 hour straight of non stop games of tag, looking for bugs, and playing with action figures but once those boys came into the picture he was all manly and macho about playing with them and not me.
Needless to say I’d chase after all of them and wanted in on their little “no girls allowed” club.
After a while I got fed up and started playing with the little girl around the block and we had our own club. Boys smell anyway!
