Shiseido Maquillage Powder Celebration 5th Anniversary Set launches in Japan at the end of November and I can barely breath awaiting its arrival.
Shiseido’s Maquillage line has never been one of my favorite Japanese Brands and I do find I pass it up to venture towards other product lines. Not sure why that is but it just fails to excite me.
But I have no such reserves about celebrating their 5th Anniversary in style with the Powder Celebration Set, simply put, it’s stunning!

Ahhh phew. After discussing E.L.F. Cosmetics we definitely need to liven this place up with some posh, luxe, gorgeous makeup and Clarins Barocco Face Palette fits the bill.
Ahhh the great debate. Should you indulge in the E.L.F. Endless Eyes Pro Mini Eyeshadow Palette or shouldn’t you? 32 Eyeshadows, sponge applicator, mirror, nice slim compact, $5 buck price tag….sounds dreamy right? Where could you possibly go wrong indulging since the price isn’t too bad….
This year E.L.F. has two of these limited edition palettes available for the Holidays. The one I’ll be reviewing here today is the mini version which includes 32 shadows for $5 bucks and there’s another, which I didn’t purchase, that includes 100 eyeshadows for $10 bucks.
First off, these are obviously way popular because they are sold out however E.L.F. is allowing orders for when they do come back in stock. Secondly, I purchased mine on a sheer whim because I know alot of people wanted to hear about it, see photos, etc…prior to purchasing it for themselves. And thirdly, I am a bit of a makeup snob and palettes like this don’t always garner my love and attention. Slapping 100′s of eyeshadow into a palette can prove great particularly from brands like Urban Decay, hey bring that on, but present me with one from E.L.F. and I’m naturally a little wary about the quality.
Let’s have a look and see if this bad boy lives up to it’s “professional status” as dubbed by E.L.F.
Mmmmm blast from my Stila Summer past here. I was sorting through my “to be reviewed” pile a few days ago, that would be a large pile of products that get photographed and tossed into a bin for safe keeping. This pile tends to get out of control sometimes so you’ll find me diving in head first and proceeding to rummage around to see what looks good for reviewing quite often.
Anyway, during my daily plunder through the bin I realized, wow, I didn’t review the Stila One Step Primer Color that was released with Stila’s Summer Collection this year.
Anyone haul it?
We had discussed which you would buy at the time since Summer was all about various cream blushes and this happened to be one that did everything plus walked your dog too! Stila dubs it a primer, eyeshadow, highlighter, lip color, cheek color, and bronzer. Ummm…dare I say NOT!
